Neon Genesis Evangelion-Bohemian RhapsodyEvangelion Opus
I just realized I had to put this on tumblr because THERE MIGHT BE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT REALIZE THIS EXISTS.
So one day a few years ago I was listening to “Bohemian Rhapsody” on my iPod when I realized “Holy crap, this song is about Shinji Ikari.” And not just in the, oh this song can be applied to this fictional character and it is fitting, but like Queen was psychic or something. So I went to Youtube and typed in Evangelion and Bohemian Rhapsody and this is what came up.
Now I am going to make a controversial claim here - this AMV (easily in my personal top 5) is possibly the only AMV I’ve ever seen that has elevated both its anime and its song (and yes, I realize I’m talking about the iconic “Bohemian Rhapsody”). I would dare say this is one AMV I wouldn’t hesitate to call “art.” How the song and the anime compliment each other just raises both of them to another level. WATCH IT.
Also, this is obviously Eva (including End of Evangelion), but seriously trigger warnings for EVERYTHING (violence, disturbing imagery, nudity, suicidal thoughts, etc.).

One of my favorite things about Leverage is that the further away from being a “white hat” he becomes, the less of an asshole he is. Not that he ever stops being an asshole, he just becomes slightly less of one.
