Best Neon Genesis Evangelion Episodes

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a brilliant Anime, that has a amazing plot with some absolutely amazing episodes! These are the ten best of them!

The Top Ten

1 Episode 9: Both of You, Dance Like You Want To Win!
2 Episode 24: The Beginning and the End, or Knockin' On Heavens Door

While not my favorite episode, it is probably the best episode. It's so emotional and powerful. It also shows that nothing will ever go right for Shinji, probably one of the saddest examples of it. It also is the only episode to feature fan favorite character, Kaworu Nagisa. - Elric-san

Its odd to think that they were able to fully develop Kaowru in just one episode and make it the best episode in the series.

3 Episode 11: The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still
4 Episode 18: Ambivalence

Not only did it include one of the most awesome action sequences in the Anime! It also had a major plot point, that led to Shinjis downfall throughout the second half of the Anime! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

5 Episode 22: Don't Be

Asuka's childhood past is the reason is the best episode ever so far.

Amazing episode, best psychological sequence in the series. Don't miss the directors cut, with lots of extra scenes and an extended "mind-r*pe" scene. DC verson will make this your favorite episode, trust me!

6 Episode 16: Splitting of the Breast

This episode has some of everything. An awesome angel, delving into shinji's mind, great interaction between all the characters, and best of all, Unit 01 going berzerk. While it may not be the BEST episode, it's the most complete evangelion episode, and one of my favorites.

With this episode, the Anime went from a more Action and Adventure type of Anime, to a dark and psychological masterpiece! It was at this moment the story really began and the Anime slowly went towards its ending! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 Episode 23: Rei III

Even though Episode 6 was in my opinion better, this episode showed how great of a character Rei is! She even wanted to sacrifice her own life to save Shinji, as the Angel tried to attack Unit-00! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8 Episode 2: Unfamiliar Ceiling

The second episode was brilliant enough, however this was pretty much the episode that really started the Anime up! Not only did it really introduce its characters, but also uncovered everything that happened after the Angels assault in Episode 1! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

9 Episode 6: Rei II

The whole battle against Ramiel was one of my favorite parts of the series, with this being the better half of it!
The moment Rei shielded Shinji from the Energy Beam of the Angel was a brilliant moment and the ending was flipping awesome! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

10 Episode 20: Weaving a Story Part II: Oral Stage

After Shinji merged with his Unit-01, his body has disappeared and his mind has been trapped in the LCL! This was definitely one of the most interesting, unique and storyrich episodes! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Contenders

11 Episode 5: Rei I

This episode uncovered much of Rei as a character in the series! Also, in this episode the intense battle against the Angel Ramiel starts, which was amazing! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
