One thought on “Neon Genesis EvanGLORIO Episode 4: A Work of Fan Fiction

  1. So the unique thing about Anomalocaris was that for a long time its very alien form led people to think it might belong to a unique phylum of animals that no longer exists. Its name literally means anomalous shrimp because its mandibles looks like shrimp tails.
