What makes the series one of the most talked-about anime over two decades later?
Neon Genesis Evangelion has generated buzz ever since its debut. Set in an alternate version of the not-too-distant 21st-century Neon Genesis Evangelion packs in tons of references to the Bible and eminent pieces of literature. The series also had a strong influence on anime, at a time when the anime industry and televised anime series were in a stagnant period.
This might just be a continuation of the Demon Slayer craze across the world.
