Not really, but I have watched parts of the show and the Rebuild movies. The look of the mechs is interesting, but I spent most of the show wondering why all of the therapists died during Second Impact. There must have been a worldwide therapist/psychologist/psychiatrist convention in Antarctica at the time.
Yeah I think the Mechs design are so cool, blending between organic and machinery. I'm not really following the story just love the action scene and all the mechs design. Oh don't forget the cute pilot Rei Ayanami, I love her too
