Neon Genesis Evangelion Analysis | GITM Podcast Ep. 40: Absurdism & Meaning

With my second watch of Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) nearing completion, I thought that I could confidently say that I had a 'decent' understanding of the series... until I began to research the Absurdist philosophy behind it. Albert Camus' extensive discourse on The Absurd has definitely challenged what I understand of the series, potentially my … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion Analysis | GITM Podcast Ep. 40: Absurdism & Meaning

Animation & Cinematography Analysis | GITM Podcast Ep. 39: The Art of Fighting Sakuga

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (2017) may not have been recieved well by many, but (at least earlier on) there are definitely parts of its narrative that are worthy of merit, one of them being The Momoshiki Arc.

Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) Analysis | GITM Podcast Ep. 33: The Descent Arc

At this stage of Neon Genesis Evangelion, things start to go sideways.

In this episode I analyse the third arc … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) Analysis | GITM Podcast Ep. 33: The Descent Arc
