Gurren Lagan. I didn't felt a single thing "GOOD" about Evangelion. That was a 'watch to fuck yourself' show. Gurren Lagan was not as depressing as NGL and it was sometimes funny even at serious time which is good. And fights are really better than NGL. And mainly I liked Kamina a lot, imo he is arguably the best character from both the shows.
Sometimes better plot, character, story doesn't make an anime better if the anime is not watchable.
