Aka RoE. Possible spoilers Ahead, be warned.







1.0 was released in 2007, and I found out about it over at 4chan (torrents) a few months back.

Managed to watch 2.0 in the theatres over the weekend.

Having watched the original series back in the late 90s, I find myself comparing the scenes and generally trying to spot the differences. I still enjoyed the movie thoroughly.

1.0 has mainly has the same storyline minus the lull moments and covers up til the cube angel that tries to drill its way down to NERV.

2.0 picks up from where 1.0 left off and is mostly different from the original. Alot of kick **** new scenes added in and even a new character. Asuka gets a new surname. Shinji is less wussy (there's a gurren lagaan reference near the end sequence, I think).

You may not understand what is going on in 2.0 if you have never watched the original Eva animation before though.


I just might go back to the theaters to watch 2.0 again this weekend. It just isn't the same as watching at home with my lame PC speakers.

I can't believe they're still doing Eva related stuff. Why would they bother?

Because it sells. Just like how they still spew out Final Fantasy 7 crap.

A less welcome mat like Shinji seems pretty counter productive. I'll watch it, like I said, because I'm a sucker to view things I'd seen as a child done in a new way.

I'm just not sure I could handle watching Eva again. It's a good anime, but it's so soul crushing. And then there was the ending.

Because it's Evangelion. Everything anyone does to Evangelion makes it better. You just have to accept that.

The reference is actually very subtle, and you may not even see it the way I do.



The part where Shinji's eyes glow (yes, glow) red when he tries __ _________ ???????, look as though there are spirals in them. Also where the new character activates Eva 02's secondary configuration XXXXX XXXX and her eyes glows green.

Double spoiler protection for you poldaran, pm me if you reeeeeally want to know.

I liked 1.0. Not much was changed from the original but the animation quality seemed vastly improved.

I will watch the rest, as I've always enjoyed finding new ways to look at Evangelion. I liked what they did with the manga, but I never finished it. Does anyone know if it was even finished? (The manga came after the anime)

And not the "new" manga where they're all in high school & superheroes or whatever it is they are. That was just silly, even if the art was decent.

The latest I read about the original manga was volume 11 (I think) and there is no sight of an ending yet. The author releases at rate of 1 volume per year. Not really sure why that happens.

I believe the artist is the original character designer, or maybe it was just the mechanical designer?

Either way, I'm sure he's busy.

I liked "End of Evangelion", it was much better than that mind **** that tried to explain that Shinji's life was connected to humanity's existence. He goes, they go; it shouldn't have been that complicated to show to the audience.

I liked EoE until the part at the hospital. Oh, and any part that had Asuka abused in some manner was okay.

The plot is largely a point-for-point adaptation of episodes one through six of the original anime. While some scenes and events are replications of the original series, others unfold differently with new or omitted scenes and newly-available 3D CG technology.[6] The film received a positive response from fans, with Hideaki Anno himself calling it a "faithful remake of the original series".

Rate up for you.

So it's different. A lot more so than previous installments of this "re-imagining" of Evangelion. I thought a lot of it was better, especially replacing Asuka as the pilot of Unit 3 (As well as 2) & having Shinji get dummy plugged then rip Unit 3 to shreds. Jury's out on the new pilot, though.

All in all, good stuff.

To follow up on this, this link just showed up on my facebook feed and tracks the real-time conversion of 3.0 to English.

Looks like the release date in the US is January 2013.

Also, I was completely confused when I saw my "It's Geno, oh baby!" comment dated November 16th. I thought to myself "Wait, I would have remembered posting that... was I trashed that night? I don't think so..." Didn't realize it was from two years ago Smiley: laugh

So after watching 3.33 I can honestly say I was not expecting that.

But seriously, I was getting stupid frustrated at how they all treated him in the beginning. Also why the **** wouldnt anyone explain it to Shinji. It Sort of **** me off, they saved him to treat him like **** then get mad when he runs away. I mean didnt they learn anything from the last 2 movies. /sigh
I did get a bit uncomfortable with the Kaworu/Shinji scenes.

Overall it was Evangelion, but it was stupid frustrating, not in a bad way, in a this raises way more questions than it answers. I honestly hope they can close it out and tie up most of the plot. I just dont want to wait another 4 years.

Smiley: laugh at Eva 02+08.

There's a lot still that needs explaining, and not in the usual Evangelion "I have no idea what's going on" way.

Why the **** did everyone but Gendo and Father Time leave Nerv? If Wille has the resources to build an airship fleet, why the **** is Asuka's plugsuit held together with duct tape? Why didn't they just tell Shinji what was going on (and eliminate half the plot)? Why are the pilots still 14 years old (and no, "Curse of the Eva" doesn't cut it)?

He went off to do what he wanted, regardless of what everyone was telling him to do, caused Third Impact and killed probably the majority of Tokyo-2 and who knows other countries. Then he goes and causes Fourth Impact because he's **** about piloting another Eva unit, even though Kawaru and everyone else was telling him not to, so chances are the only people left alive now are Father Time, Gendo, and the Highwind with Misato and crew are the only ones left alive. It's like someone at Gainex said "Hey, I bet we can't make Shinji worse!" and then they did. Them treating Shinji like **** is completely deserved. He's a selfish little ****

I did like the Alpha & Omega line. Really, I'm enjoying the movies in general. See you again in two years for Fifth and Sixth Impact. **** you Shinji.

Still doesnt make sense at the end of Evangelion 2.22 Misato was cheering Shinji on for trying to save Rei. He didnt know he would cause 3rd impact. I can understand other people being mad at him sure but Misato or Asuka? I mean Asuka never really liked him much (Tsundere) but to blame him for trying to save their friend?

The 4th impact was all his fault yes, but he was blinded by thinking he could fix everything and make people not loath him anymore. A stupid move but we all know hes afraid of rejection because of his father. Also we learned his memories of being a child were erased, when they are playing Shogi he shows Shinji a picture of his mother and says you wouldnt remember after we erased your memories of that. So Shinji may have way less emotional maturity then normal kids his age.



Edit: Also I think if they told him exactly what happened or explained why he shouldnt pilot an EVA again he may have understood. Versus telling him nothing and having him get frustrated because they are treating him like **** I mean when he saw what happened he did regret his actions. But by that time they were filling his head with ways to "fix it"

It makes sense. They didn't know it would cause Third Impact either, and Rei was one of their own. Probably the only one that did was Gendo, because he's the original Aizen. Chances are during the time jump they discovered just what Shinji was in relation to Gendo's plans, so there is a ton of resentment over it. They probably found out Shinji was the key to the end of the world and dislike him for it, and all their previous interactions with him have shown he's not capable of handling anything complex like that. They still made an effort to get him back. They didn't really have much time to sit him down and explain, either. They were attacked twice soon after he awakened. What's surprising is that Asuka didn't just leave him at the end. It's probably for eventual redemption. I guess everything will be explained in the next movie. Unless this company was known for screwjob endings ...

Either way, Shinji sucks.
