Episode Notes

A year after the show’s arrival on Netflix, and a year after promising to do an episode all about it, we’ve finally done a Neon Genesis Evangelion episode! A crossover with our sister show Weekly Suit Gundam, we dive deep with the original 26 episodes of Hideaki Anno’s influential classic, and find that, while it has frequently magnificent direction, animation, and voice acting, the story, structure, and themes are a lot more undercooked and problematic. It’s certainly a fascinating show to talk about, and hopefully worth the wait (though big Eva fans might hate us by the end). We also hear from Sean about playing Yakuza 3 from the recent Remastered Collection, talk about the Season 3 updates and Kefla DLC for Dragon Ball FighterZ, and go over a few pieces of recent news, including new details about the Xbox Series X.
