I’m not going to beat around the bush here, reader: This is ridiculous. You know what “Neon Genesis Evangelion” is right? Surely! It’s a psychologically jarring story about gargantuan non-robots fighting even more gargantuan non-aliens that you either love or hate. Usually you’ll find that “Neon Genesis Evangelion” fans aren’t in the middle about what they think of the series. The series has a huge and very much obvious audience divide with some fighting tooth and nail that it is the greatest series of all time and others doing a same but making the opposite point. Regardless of what side you’re on…this news is insane. In fact, this news is so insane I almost didn’t bother writing about it due to doubts of it’s legitimacy but seeing as many other publications have now begun promoting the crowdfunding campaign I can’t help but believe this is entirely real.
