 Eva Monkey, The Ultimate Evangelion Resource Site   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The world of the first half of Evangelion TV series, which had been full of joy of anime, collapsed gradually in the latter half: In the 18th episode, Evangelion Unit-01-Shinji was inside it-attacked Evangelion Unit-03 as an "Angel," and Touji, the pilot of Evangelion Unit-03 and Shinji's classmate, got badly wounded and lost a leg.
The reason that Evangelion TV series seemed to break down at the conclusion was that the shift-from fiction to meta-fiction-was too sudden and self-destructive.
In the 6th episode of the TV series, Shinji and Rei, who were "closed-minded children," fought together against an Angel and "opened their minds," exchanging smiles with each other.

Monkey is at first reluctant to help the pilgrimage, but is kept under control by a magical headband which tightens and causes him agony whenever Tripitaka recites the `headache sutra' (complete with comedy piercing screech sound effect).
The series, though set in China, was actually a Japanese production and was made back at the end of the 1970's....meaning that there are a lot of hilariously awful special effects.
This is a great DVD set of the full series of the Monkey saga televised in the early 80's on the BBC.

 The Monkey King: Quest for the Sutra (2002) Review by Tv_Addict - Taiwanese TV Series - spcnet.tv
TVB is known for their reputation in creating really appealing serials and it's one of the bigger competitors in TV serial productions.
Some criticized that the Monkey King falling in love with the Purple Orchid is ridiculous since he's supposed to be hard on the subject of love.
This serial was a disaster due to misuse of a large budget, horrible acting, mediocre CGI, unappealing costumes, slow plot that was repetitive, and some bad fight sequences.

The developing series was quickly proving to be an important deal for Bellisario because it was the first TV series in which he would receive sole 'created by' credit.
While preparing the series for its network run on ABC, the creative staff of the series moved into the old Alfred Hitchcock building at Universal Studios and began preparing what promised to be a difficult production.
Though the series was budgeted at a once-astounding $900,000 per hour long segment, an entire island (and time period...) still had to be reproduced accurately and within budgetary restraints.
