About this Episode

We’re in the end game now: David Cronenberg, the Aum Shinrikyo gas attack and more maternity imagery converge in Rei’s big boss fight. Then, Eva introduces its charismatic, queer ringer character, Kaworu Nagisa. Joseph and Ian go to bat for ADV’s more loving translation of Kaworu’s dialog and talk about the importance of LGBTQIA+ representation in anime, especially in America. If that wasn’t enough, the hosts get into the philosophical history of the 20th century after an extended dalliance with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
