On a side note. Has anyone fansubbed Revival of Evangelion. The third movie in the EVA series. The first two were licensed, but what happened to the third


Wikipedia says that is just Death & Rebirth combined with End of Evangelion. AKA another Gainax marketing attempt.

As soon as Hideaki dies, they are going to market EVA to death.

If it sucks then fans will send death threats(they do anyway), and then Hideaki might get inspired to criticize Humanity and the industry again, then he will make another show.(YAY!)

We can only hope it plays out like that.

If it sucks, i'm going to pretend it doesn't exist, good old human denial.

For a full comparison of the two series(pointing out the obvious ripoffs).

Go to episode 6 of RahXephon.

My full review of that episode:

He won't pilot it again, they can't make Shinji pilot it again, I mean, Ayato...oops, their clone is showing.>_<

Disagreeable Commander Gendo, LOL.

Nerv should be dissolved, after a corrupt investigation of the incident. LOL

Escort to get a secret weapon(Adam). Opening up the proverbial Pandora's box. LOL

Arias from 14 years earlier(Angel attacks)?. Dr. Ritsuko comparing them. Kisuragi/Kitsuragi LOL

Poor Shinji is so isolated he doesn't realize his small scope of thinking is pissing off his elders(Kim). His only specialty/use is piloting the God-like mech, huh?

Kim is motivated by vengence, due to the death of her parents involving one of these God-creatures, eh? Having Asuka-esque flashbacks of parnets and misery(ponytails included), eh?

Arranging an ancient tablet, and preparing a "planned number" and how to use "them".(SEELE)
HQ is a pyramid, that is common in animes(NOT!!)

Headphones on a train, Rei and her creepy poetic moments, walking Shinji through his first sync. Nerv hovercraft, waiting for the Angel to attack from an unknown location, AND IT MAKES THINGS FALL INTO THE GROUND! Same pounding fight of Sachiel, and same choice of angle shots. Unit 01 sinks huh? Talk with lady at sunset huh? Vision of angelic female huh? Bathing in a torrent of it's blue blood huh?

If this sounds familiar, you watched and understood the plot of Evangelion(the best anime and show ever).
With the random plots coming after this you stand little chance of any kind of comprehension. That was all in order of occurrence on this show, if you think I'm making it up rewatch it! Every scene is stolen from Eva!

"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." See, that is plagerism if I don't put it into quotes.

I wish someone had told the creators of this show that.>_< but considering this director stated "Evangelion, but better!" I think it is obvious enough.

And by the way, he failed. To all RahXephon lovers, you f***ing suck, and I f***ing hate you. I really can't believe you fell for this.

http://www.therossman.com/rrr/anime/rahxephon.html

That site sums it up quite nicely.

And his "love" of RahXephon is actually bitter, seething sarcasm. Just saying that, seeing as how most RahXephon lovers couldn't even see the "subtle" similarities between the two shows

Even Evangelion is based off of Hideaki Anno's childhood mech shows(Space Runaway Ideon), but damn, he made a show so complex and realistically-driven, it blows the anime industry's standards of scifi and fantasy of it's damn feet. TO THIS VERY DAY!

RahXephon is a mediocre clone in an ocean of Evangelion clones, but not because it deals with the same concepts, but because it insults viewer's intelligence in EVERY plagerized episode, SCENE FOR F***ING SCENE.

I have never understood that hatred of Shinji. Here's a rundown of his situation:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The world is ending, you have to get the sh** beaten out of you by the agents of God

if you fail, the world will blame you

your Mom's dead

your Dad is dead to you and nice to the wierd chick

your guardian is an irresponsible lecher

your dad role model is assassinated(Kaji)

the "normal" chick is the average manipulative bitch

did i mention your Mom is dead, and you were there when it happened

the weapon you control, is psychopathic towards all life(including best buds and their relatives)

your actions cripple both aforementioned people

the wierd chick you have a crush on reminds you of your dead mother, even after you touch her naked!

if you quit piloting said psychopathic weapon, everyone in the world dies,or worse, just the people you like

you mercy kill your new best friend, and your reward is to be hunted by the government

said government executes your friends, try to get you

you whack off to your comatose friend and she holds it against you,you could have done much worse things to her

the wierd chick is the last enemy you have to kill, even though you feel she has already saved your life countless times,and you don't want to doit because your Dad has been manipulating her from the beginning

the last adult you talk to tells you to destroy your only source of power and come back, alive, even though she is dying! Adults are still hypocrites.

While all this is coming at you, you are going through puberty at the age of 14!!

If you were Shinji, do you think your being nice and apologizing, was whiny?
I think some people are just uncomfortable with real emotions and tragedy.
The kid got suicidal, not emo.
Suicidal people can be convinced to live, whiny emos had nothing wrong in the first place.

The Shinji-hating must end!!

Oh god he's off on one again.
Although I have also never understood why people think Shinji is a whining kid. He goes through a lot and without Shinji there wouldn't be an Eva. After all the whole show is about him.

^^ Lusulpher for the love of god add the *SPOILERS* thingy to the beginning of your lqast post....

And also i understand where your comeing from and quite honestly never got the Shinji haterd aswell...

Dont forget to add to the list:
*Spoliers*
His dad forced him to almost kill(in the manga he actually did die) one of your only true friends.
Said friends murder/cripplement has cost you all your other friends aswell.
Every time you pilot said psyhopathic weapon you feel ALOT of bone crunching, mind-numbing pain and mental stress, and also the inside tastes like blood.
Said Psyhopatic robot has your dead mothers, whos death you saw, soul in it wich tries kidnappes you for a month.
Noone notices you until they need you to go through hell in a giant robot.
Your mother-figure/care-taker makes advanced towards you at one point..
The hot-spring clone-penguin you live with gets more respect by the girl you secretly have a crush on but you wont admit.

Every mech anime is a wannabe EVA amirite?



RahXephon was better than EVA imo. I watch anime to be entertained, and watching a 14 year old being that emo doesn't entertain me.
