A little more "Eva"

Subject: Noir
My GreenCine rental queue cadence is totally off, so I don't have anything new to watch. Well, I've got a few real-people foreign flicks I bought but haven't seen yet, but I'm not in an experiemental mood. So I fired up discs 3&4 of "Neon Genesis: Evangelion" to fill the gap.

Not much more to say about it except for an observation: Hideki Anno seems to have tapped into a primal level of both the 15-year-old and the 30-year-old in this one. It's a bit of a shame that I've outgrown both, but I can still recognize the attractive power they possess. It's definitely something "Rahxephon" is missing.

And despite some of the silliness, it's still a top-notch piece of work. A lot of the "spark of life" to the characters. Something that's missing with most manga-derived series, unfortunately.

That's about it.
