Sorry I just had to click on the spoilers.

Damn now I'm a lot more interested. 1.1 just seemed like a reader's digest version with updated anime. But it seems the further they go into the plot the more it changes. cool.


Yea, now that you know the plot, go back rewatch both movies and it'll make sense and come all together and it'll be so obvious that 1.0 and 2.0 were building up to this point in 3.0

Oh yea, I forgot something about Evangelion 3.0




Plot Spoiler for Eva 3.0 (Around the first 30 minutes, give or take) :





My thoughts:



Also, judging from the previous releases of the Rebuild movies, we will probably have Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo hit the shelves around the end of 2013.

Years ago I was warned by a friend not to watch Evangelion. He told me it was horrible. I thought he meant the series was horrible but no it was the... the plot, I guess. After having watched the whole series and the movies the ending stuck with me for days. I remember the popping people, the skeleton Rei and watching the writers sanity slowly go from somewhat OK to totally insane by the end. Did I hate the series? No but could I sit through it again? No. I couldn't put myself through that a second time. Anyone else feel that way?


Whattt!! I think one of eva's greatest appeal (to me anyways) is that you can watch it multiple times and still learn new things about the story and characters. View points change and new meanings are created through multiple viewings. There's so much going on behind the scenes which only become apparent after seeing it a few times. Although its abit of a double edged sword.......with all that jargon and info to process, this series can sometimes give you a headache. If anyone's interested go check out the evawiki page.

I feel you get that from watching any show a second time, third time, fourth time, etc. not just Eva.

I agree with you somewhat but i dont think many shows come close to eva's thought provoking story line or the many questions it asks of the viewer. this show is packed with things that have multiple meanings.

I can name a few, all of them thought provoking. Haibane Renmei, Texhnolyze, Kino's Journey, Serial Experiments Lain, and Shigurui: Death Frenzy. Of course, there are others I could name but I chose these ones.

Evangelion was the first series I've seen subbed and my gateway anime. But despite that it's still my favorite of all time because Hideaki Anno did such a good job incorporating so much into one series without it feeling overwhelming. As much as people complain about the original ending. I actually prefer the ending of the TV series over the movie.

Sure Shinji cries a lot, but let's face it you're throwing a damn 14 year old kid who has been abandoned by his father into a mecha designed after his deceased mother to fight a bunch of monsters which want to destroy all of humanity. Who the heck wouldn't want to scream their brains out?

I thought the series was good, but the movies were so much better IMHO. I loved the movies. Can't wait for the next movie to come out.

I'm with you on most of this. I didn't understand the tv show ending. but trying to, along with my fan friends was part of the fun. "lots of speculation for everyone"

I love the series. I've seen the series three times now, End of Evangelion twice, and the Rebuild movies 3 times each. Probably a fourth time when Rebuild 3 comes out here (marathon them to keep the content fresh for the new movie).

The soundtracks for Evangelion are some of the best in my opinion. I personally like Thanatos from the original series.

On Evangelion's last two episodes , which upset many fans...

ANNO: I have no problem with them. If there's a problem, it's all with you guys. Too bad.

Ownd.

In the end of the TV show, everybody went to heaven because Shinji wanted it that way. Shinji became God.
