Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion, Keijo!!!!!!!! Recommendations
They both convey incredible themes using an extremely stylized aesthetic. If you don't see how their themes are basically the same, you just didn't get it.
Literally the same thing.
- Hidden meanings
- Lots of symbolism and metaphors
- Cute girls
- Epic fights direction
- Fanservice (Asuka scenes in EoE and some battle techniques in Keijo)
Both Keijo!!!! and End of Evangelion were very controversial anime when they first came out, for similar reasons. Both are true works of art that force us to look inside ourselves and ask the tough questions. Evangelion and Keijo!!!! flip the traditional hero's journey on its head and serve as a criticism to the anime medium as a whole. You may not always enjoy either series, they may make you uncomfortable at times, but these boundary-breaking anime series will make you a better person for it in the end. Cannot recommend either highly enough to anime fans. 10/10
- Artistic use of nudity and sexuality
- Full of symbolism and deeper meaning to incite rewatches
- Filled with iconic imagery
- Unique atmosphere unmatched by any other anime
- Heartbreaking, yet uplifting
- Will make you rethink your life as a whole
Both are masterpieces that are sadly often misunderstood, but are absolutely some of the greatest anime of all time, nay, some of the greatest pieces of media ever created.
Unforgettable experiences that have amazing visuals that use the medium to its fullest potential, godlike directing, as well as plenty of thought-provoking themes that will stick with you your whole life. They both serve as criticism of what anime has become and make you want to go outside and abandon escapism through anime for good. Closest you can get to anime as art.
