My friends and I will be co-hosting a trio of comprehensive panels on Neon Genesis Evangelion
just over a month from now. I'm sure many of you know that Evangelion
is one of those series that just doesn't lay everything out for you, deliberately making you ask a lot of questions about what's going on, what something really means, and even what's happening around you in real life.
We've already got a good idea of what we're going to present and discuss. Still, we'd like to know what questions you have that you'd like to see answered. We've got a considerable amount of official material on our side (and we'll be bringing some of it with us, if you'd like to flip through it during the breaks), so we'll be presenting as authentic an explanation of the story and characters as we can without speculating or making things up (until Part 3, that is; then, the gloves are off!).
This is my first convention, so I wasn't there for Bryan's "Evangelion: Turning the Tape" panel last year. If there are any questions he raised that you'd like us to touch upon, please, let us know. . .

"Neon Genesis Evangelion remains one of the most influential titles in the history of anime. Yet, over a decade after the series' finale, fans are still trying to put together the pieces of Anno's elaborate puzzle. Join us as we unravel the mysteries of this controversial classic in Understanding Evangelion
! Don't worry; there'll be plenty of fan service, too!"
