Spoiler-Free Review: Evangelion 3.0 You Can (not) Redo

Of the entire Harry Potter series, in terms of both movies and books, I absolutely hated Order of the Phoenix. It was one of those stories that could summed up in a sentence or two in its entirety without losing any bit of detail to the story (The Ministry of Magic doesn’t believe Voldemort’s back until Harry and co. fight him on the Ministry’s turf where Sirius dies). Sure, technically stuff happens (I think all but the most avant-garde of works hold this common thread), but when it comes to the grander scheme, it was pretty obvious that it was only used as a stepping stone to get the meat of the series’ latter half.

A similar thing can be said about Evangelion 3.0: You Can (not) Redo, but for some reason I thought it was a solid enough addition to the franchise that I didn’t mind it.
