Neon Genesis Evangelion (my all-time favourite anime series) and Sonny Boy (one of my favourite anime from 2021) touch on similar topics of personal growth, control and even change. In this episode I want to talk about the indirect conversation that Hideaki Anno & co. and Shingo Natsume have as well as what we can take from both anime.

Hope you enjoy this short episode!
