    Oh please what kind of question is that, of course you should buy it. I havent seen it myself but to everyone i asked it is a masterpiece, The series went down in history as one of the most best anime ever. To some it still is!
    Looking forward to Burst Angel Vol. 3

    Neon Genesis Evangelion is on the short list of MUST SEE Anime series, However, it is not recommened as an 'Introductory' anime series. A beginner in the art of anime may come away with the impression that all anime series have such a twisted sadistic plot, and emotionally disfunctional teenage characters. EVA still has the well earned title as one of the most controversial anime series ever made...

    NGE is 100% crap and I advise against anyone having to suffer through it.

    However since my opinion, though correct (), is in the minority, you may want to watch it just to shut up the hordes of delusional fans who will say with disbelief, "You've never seen Eva?????"

    Evangelion is one of the best animes ever. If possible, just try to grab the first DVD before you splurge and get the whole set to see if it is your bag. Eva sets should be cheap now used that a lot of the people who owned the old DVD's are replacing them with the Platinum edition DVD's.

    If someone says it isn't good, they are wrong.

    Nope. I'm 100% correct that I thought the series was shit.

    This illustrates some of the controversy around NGE. There is a large group of people like dark_glaive who loved the series. On the flip side there is a large group of people (like myself) who didn't like the series. Before you go and drop huge coin on an 8-DVD box set head to your local rental emporium and rent the first disk. Just about every Blockbuster in the universe carries the first disk of the series and I'm sure that any rental outfit that claims to carry anime will have it also. If you love the show, open the wallet. If you hate it, you'll only be out the few quid you paid in rental.
