The 007 Theme Lives On in Anime

Thought you may enjoy this soundtrack piece from the anime classic Neon Genesis Evangelion which seems to be influenced (quite heavily) by John Barry’s 007 Theme


Never heard that one, thanks for sharing!

Have been watching it on Netflix, very interesting series and this piece of music always raised my John Barry radars attention
