Neon Genesis Evangelion Episode 2

Neon Genesis Evangelion

"The Beast"

You have to wait for most of the episode until you find out what happens in the aftermath of the first episode and the beginning of this one (though, given the state of things, your best guess is probably right).

After a fast introduction to the series, things slow down a bit in this episode, introducing a few ideas, groups, themes, as well as letting Shinji slowly acclimate to his new surroundings (convenient for the viewers as well).

The pacing is very good, and it's one of those rare episodes where you actually feel surprised that it's over.

Rating: A
