Remastered and re-dubbed on Netflix, the iconic anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion has been back in a big way and now it's just been combined with a very different animated series.
YouTube user Gamblor posted a fan video combining the opening title sequence from Evangelion, complete with its Japanese-language theme song "A Cruel Angel's Thesis," with clips from the popular '90s American animated series King of the Hill. Retitled "Propane Genesis Evangelion" to reflect the main occupation of protagonist Hank Hill, the combination surprisingly fits.
Created by Mike Judge, King of the Hill followed a middle class Texas family that dealt with the pressures of suburban life while raising two teenagers, led by propane salesman Hank Hill. The series ran on Fox from 1997 to 2010. Neon Genesis Evangelion was created by Hideaki Anno and originally aired in Japan from 1995 to 1996.
Synchronized perfectly with Evangelion's theme song, right down to the flashing text cards throughout the opening credits, this mashup is a pure delight even for those who aren't wholly familiar with either series in a wonderfully weird mismatch between the two properties.
