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
5 Episode 2: Unfamiliar Ceiling
6 Episode 16: Splitting of the Breast

People who say episode 24 is better than even this one are just idiotic yaoi fangirls

My favourite angel, and lots of other cool sci fi

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.

7 Episode 23: Rei III
8 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!

9 Episode 6: Rei II
10 Episode 20: Weaving a Story Part II: Oral Stage

The Contenders

11 Episode 5: Rei I
12 Episode 4: Hedgehog's Dilemma

The first time we truly get to know about Shinji, and he starts to get relatable, this episode is so phsychologically charged and beautifully drawn, the interactions between the characters is purely human and compelling - Enmanu16

13 Episode 10: Magma Diver

This is probably the least thought out episode and its kind of sticks out like an angel in your driveway.
