    #3 – Neon Genesis EvangelionYou know how they say you never forget your first time? Well that applies to me with this anime; Neon Genesis Evangelion was the first anime series that I ever really got into. The show had an addicting combination of action, drama, and suspense. I had to keep watching in order to find out what would happen to the characters that I had come to be attached to. The series did a fantastic job at progressing the characters throughout the series, especially through the rough moments. As a viewer, I felt for the main characters as they went through the challenges that the story put them through.If you haven’t ever heard of Evangelion, it’s a pretty awesome show, though very depressing in the end. The basis is the world is recovering from a global catastrophe known as second impact, and according to sacred documents known as the Dead Sea Scrolls, powerful Download ost anime creatures known as angels are going to be coming to attack. A military organization known as NERV takes the front in the defense of mankind. Their weapon? Mysterious, yet powerful, humanoid robots known as the evangelion, or eva for short. Their pilots have to be carefully picked, as not just anyone can be a pilot to one of these monsters. The main three pilots are all teenagers, chosen for their various reasons and for more specific ones that you learn about later in the series. Shinji, Asuka, and Rei are the main three pilots that make up the story.#2 – Log HorizonThis anime is pretty much my obsession at this point. No, seriously, I listen to the theme song on the way to and from work every day. This anime series did a fantastic job of explaining the world that the characters are in. By doing this, they kept the audiences interested in the bigger picture, rather than just who fighting who at what time and place. This lead to a much bigger immersion into the anime. I felt as if I was a part of the world, going through the challenges that the characters were going through. It is another anime about people being stuck in a game, but no other anime comes close to explaining the world that they are trapped in. This anime also does an amazing job of explaining the political side of the game. Not everything is adventure and action, most of it, actually, is trying to keep this world, that they find themselves in, running smoothly and peacefully.So what’s the basis of Log Horizon? Elder Tale is a hugely successful MMORPG that has swept across the world. However, after their latest update, some players, more than a thousand in various servers, find that they are actually in the game. The players, known as adventurers, must learn how to survive and adapt to this new world. They know the game, but it is much different when it is your actual body and you aren’t staring at a computer screen.
