I think every Evangelion fan knows this song, so lets talk about it!

I personally think it's the most beautiful and depressing song ever made, and maybe one of the best ever. I want this to be played at my funeral :P

For those who don't know it, this is a song written by Hideaki Anno and performed by Arianne and was featured in both The End of Evangelion movie and it's soundtrack. It talks about Hideaki's thoughts about suicide during his depression (something that heavily influenced the series).

It's been so long since I heard the song, it's coming back to me now, hahaha

I only saw what I did of Neon Genesis Evangelion when they showed it on Toonami in the afternoons for a few weeks or so. I loved the series...but what would you like to discuss about the song? o.0

It is quite awesome. I went through a phase of listening to it alot.

It is really awesome...unfortunately, around the time I heard it was the time when all my parents let me listen to was either stuff they adored from the eighties or Christian Rock...do you guys know how many good Christian Rock bands there are? Like two

D:

Im probably going to end up going through "that phase" now xP

Oh wow, this is bringing everything back.

I remember being in a temporary state of absolute shock and awe for a full week after watching EoE.

Even though it can be considered as an "alternate" ending to the original series, it's kind of implied that this was going to happen anyways. The only difference is that Shinji still hasn't gotten over himself in the movie - which I found to be quite depressing.

Everything I had grown so attached to during my watch-through of NGE was being pretty much placed in front of me, and then morphed into something I had never expected to see.

It was magnificent and beautiful.

I don't know if "alternate", many things that happen in EoE are hinted in episodes 25 and 26, like Misato and Ritsuko's death, the cameras watching Shinji, Asuka in a fetal position and a bunch of other stuff. I see EoE as a retelling of 25 and 26, but nobody can ever be sure.

And I agree, what a fantastic movie, I still cry every time I see it. So depresing, yet so beautiful.
