Neon Genesis Evangelion is nothing but a monster of the week with a few new good ideas . The end was shit, When they were making ivce (for the horny geeks).
What I'm tring to say is Neon Genesis Evangelion is not that special. If you want a anime that deserves this kinda credit check out legend of the galactic heroes.
I think you may give the Juedeo-Christian stuff a bit too much attention (Rym seemed to allude this at various times, though elected not to get too much into it), considering it was meant as window dressing. It was a stylistic choice meant to entice viewers, little else. All of the religious references have little to nothing to do with the overall theme and meaning of the work at least.
SEELE inside the Eva Series? No, I don't think so.
It's not as amazing as Scrym says but it's still damn good
I would put Mushishi immediately above it
There's a ton of great anime out there that deserves so much more attention than Eva ever did
I honestly have to wonder how much of the things R and S called off as great was deliberate on the part of Anno/Gainax
I can only think with amusement about the amount of... self masturbation that goes on over Eva even to this day and at times it annoys me so.
Mushishi was fantastic, but I couldn't put it on the same technical level as Eva.
I don't understand why I find a blood-sucking alien blob to be so goddamn cute!
At the end I had problems distinguishing between reality and dream.
Anybody else see the Metroid Hat link in Scott's TOTD and think there would actually be a metriod hat the you could wear? Lol, I was really looking forward to a metriod hat that I can wear, although I bet there's come I can just order online somewhere.

I would argue, as a side point, that some of the best episodes of Star Trek communicate their message in a far, far better way than Eva does
