I watched the first two movies on a whim (they had like a convention weekend sale on Amazon or something), and they seem very disjointed.

I'm assuming that's just due to the whole TV series-to-movie conversion, but I can't stand watching older anime these days. Dem black bars.

Not sure if you were adressing me with your question, but let's just asume you are right about the cam-thing.

I think i know why you ask this, but please elaborate - then I can respond....

Well if I can watch it somewhere in decent quality (dvd rip or otherwise) I will, then just buy it as soon as I can, if not Ill wait until I can see it in decent quality.

Well, I would suggest to wait then. The quality wasn't that good, and it might have taken something from the experience. Not saying I will suddenly love the movie when I see it in better quality - but yeah, definetely wait.

I read up on the story after seeing some mention of this movie jumping the shark, so I checked out numerous articles, including spoilers, and hated what I read.

I'll pass and wait for 4.0... maybe... if I still give a shit by the time it comes out.

I see what you mean. Not too sure on the flashbacks though.


I was trying to be sarcastic, I sure as hell hope they don't do that, either.

Then again, how else will they explain the state this world is in? It sure can't be explained in a few sentences...?


Are we seriously left to asume what happened on our own? I'd argue that for people who have maybe yet to see the original series, it would be downright impossible to make any sense out of all this - and I can't imagine that this is what they were going for...


Well it is Evangelion after all...

To seriously answer you question, I'm sure they'd elaborate it somehow, maybe Asuka will confine her feelings to Shinji and recount what happened in the time between 2.0 and 3.0, or at least, that's what I want to see. I also want to see some more Yui Ikari, one hot momma'.

This is off-topic, and many of you might know this, but I still thought I'd share...



Like I said, most people here might have known this allready - I didn't, so I thought I'd share

Speaking of being slightly off-topic - BLURAY will be released in japan in april allready (24th, I think)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From this point on I would suggest anyone who hasn't seen it, to wait - two months is really not that long anymore!

Yippeee!!! I wonder what the cover art is gonna be. Plain like 2.22's or dazzling like 1.11's? I'm betting on something similar to 2.22's cover, probably in blue rather than orange though.

Oddly enough, I think it's just gonna be a plain "3.0" release this time - so no "3.33"...

Don't know if that means that there won't be any added scenes -cause if one EVA Movie would benefit from this then it' would be this one :)

But then again I'll rather take the cinematic-version with no added material as soon as in April than wait even longer... :3

That's what I assumed it would be first, 3.0 not 3.33. Even so, wondering about the cover art. It could be 3.33, just have to wait and see then.

I dunno, I did enjoy it but the plot just felt... convoluted for no real reason. Spoilers ahead:



Huge list of questions



I think my major problem with it is that it was intended to be released with rebuild 4.0 as 1 story in 2 movies, thats why I think nothing makes sense and theres so much just thrown at you. Its not a bad film at all, its just not as good as the other 2 films, specifically not as good as the previous one. Maybe when 4.0 comeso ut that'll change for me though
