Josh Totman - Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
"If there is one battle that sticks in my head, it's this one. From the first time I saw it way back in the late 90s on VCD, it had my jaw permanently on the floor. The emotion and revelation that happens in this fight is good enough for me, but when it comes down to just pure ass kicking, Asuka never disappoints. Picking up a battleship and using it as a shield to taking a missile to the face nothing could stop her. Even the mass produced Evas were no match for her. She tore them all new ones in no time flat! This was some over the top gore for being just "robots". Needless to say, Asuka just didn't have enough juice left in the end.
This fight had me at the edge of my seat and still does to this day. I can't watch it without being in awe of it every time."
