Dear 100 Hour Board,
Evangelion is on Netflix now. Should I watch it, or will it mess me up?
I haven't seen it but I've read a lot about it recently. If you want to watch it, you can. You don't need our permission to do so.
Will it mess you up? Probably, but many people still love it after it messed them up. Some even say it defined them when they were younger because of the themes of loss and the cost of existing (and many other themes that came from the creator's life with undiagnosed depression). Just like any other show, use good judgement to decide if that's something you want to experience in full or if reading a summary will suffice.
