I never thought I could be emotionally effected by an anime... but then I saw Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Being a proverbial "anime-virgin", I never really understood the appeal of so-called "slice of life" anime's. In fact, the only reason I downloaded N.G.E. was because I felt that I could possibly relate to the protagonist, Shinji.
I'm currently on the 23'rd episode and am crying like a baby. Why didn't you guys recommend me this astounding anime?
Be sure to watch End of Evangelion afterwards.
yeah I just read about it and downloaded it. in all seriousness, I feel really depressed after watching it because I feel like Shinji except I've never accomplished anything.
Evangelion certainly isn't a slice of life anime.
it's plural, dumbass.
watch TTGL afterwards just to see what happens if instead of Misato a manly Kamina took Shinji under his wing
Eva isn't a slice of life anime, what are you talking about ?
Make sure to watch EoE and come back here to write your state of mind, assuming you will be able to find the words.
Damnit. I'm going to repost from another thread because this one is new. This is slightly a spoiler for you OP because you haven't seen the last three episodes
Okay, like normal, I was able to find an Eve thread so I don't have to make one. Okay, so lets have an Eve discussion. I just finished Eve Neon Genesis. Before I move on to End of Eve and the others, can someone explain what the fuck just happened?
I want to start off by saying that the ending with them standing around clapping made me feel like an autist watching an autistic child be led through a world with a path made specially for him to be pleased with everythihng around him.
Okay, now to what I want to know. It isn't much. So what happened was they tried to defeat all angels in order to be able to go through with the next project. What exactly was that and what did it require? I though it required the angels to be defeated, then to do 'something' I don't know to Adam which enables them to become "Gods" which lets them for reality to how they please.
>Neon Genesis Evangelion
>"slice of life" anime's.
>Why didn't you guys recommend me t...
Ok, now I'm on episode 24.
Wait 'till EoE.
Your life will never be the same.
now get the fuck out and come back once you're actually done with the series + movie
It's the one with the giant face and the two people on the beach right? I've downloaded that for tomorrow
I suggest you watch Death & Rebirth as well, it is short an covers the whole series, but some new scenes that are not in the anime fill in some plot holes and add some unique happenings
>implying you have anything better to do
And yes, that's the one.
D&R is pretty pointless, especially when OP just watched the series. It's better to watch it on your second time through.
How long is it? I'm not OP but a lot of people told me not to watch it since it's just a useless recap.
>implying I can watch 50 minutes of regular NGE + EoE within the next 47 minutes
Don't forget to have someone taking of pics of you while you watch EoE, this will make the perfect pic related with your future post.
>implying I want to feel like shit a second time
I don't want pics of me crying on the internet
Should I watch the four directors cut?
What, is it almost time for your bedtime or something?
No, but believe it or not I'm an adult.
With anime the plural of anime is anime.
I feel you OP, Evangelion changed my fucking life. Not really an anime fan, I've only watched Attack On Titan and a few Miyazaki movies. But fuck me, Evangelion is a master piece. After I watched it, I had an epiphany. I had been depressed for nearly three years. No more. I found happiness.
So everyone talking about Eve changing their lives simply realized a message being: The world is what you shape it and want it to be?
Not being an asshole, just curious.
I think I'm gonna be the same way tomorrow. Today I went to the gym after work and watching the first half of NGE in the morning and I worked extra hard. When I got home I put up my Wii U and PS3 for sale on Craigslist.
Is this some new form of trolling?
Yeah and that it is better to get out there and risk getting hurt than being a faggot like Shinji. Not only that, there is more.
The message I got was that people often hurt each other, but the times they don't make human interaction worthwhile.
It's explained pretty clearly in the show, but I'll walk you through it. The killing of angels was Gendo trying to trigger the third impact and in term neon genesis, basically everyone becoming one entity.
Although it's going to take some time to process everything you just watched. I watched it last summer and I'm still finding new meanings and shit.
It's Shinji's inner struggle during the Human Instrumentality Project, which basically combined all humans into one being. Remember when Shinji was dissolved into the LCL? It's like that, except everyone with everyone. Watch End of Evangelion. It elaborates on Shinji's thoughts and it shows what happens outside of his head too.
The third impact is supposed wipe out the human race. Is that what he was going for? What do you mean by becoming one entity. Is that what I saw in the last two episodes with everyone being inside each others minds talking about shaping the world. How did the killing of angels trigger the third impact? And why did he want everyone to become on entity?
Next time explain it to him in layman terms.
Tang, remember that word.
EOE explains all that.
Hope you like Tang.
>The third impact is supposed wipe out the human race.
> why did he want everyone to become on entity?
Something to do with his dead wife?
25-26 take place during EoE when everyone is tang.
EVA Waifu thread.
>ramiel is best girl
If you're talking about the flash movie, I just watched it. That's some fucked shit.
u wot m8?
Anyone also think that he watched Eva too young ?
I've watched Eva a long time ago and when a thread pops up, I'm always torn between the awesome memories of enjoying the show but also the less joyfull memories of making sense of everything because there is a message somewhere, leading to sadness.
Anno communicated its mood too damn well, fuck you Anno... Why didn't you talk to a friend of something...
Seele wanted to trigger Instrumentality/Third Impact for unknown reasons. Gendo just wanted to reunite with Yui, which could only be achieved through instrumentality. Killing the angels didn't really have anything to do with it rather than keep them away from Lilith until Seele decided they wanted to trigger Third Impact. Getting rid of angels was Nerv's job, and they had no knowledge of Gendo or Seele's intentions. Instrumentality took every soul into Lilith's egg, and everyone basically became a single existence together.
What fucking Flash movie?
What the fuck is wrong with you?
Stop watching shit, jesus christ, I bet you watched rebuild before the tv series.
This fucking thread. Bunch of pussies and newfags.
Try watching Kenshin OVA or SaiKano, OP, you will be burried on the next day.
>force myself to Love Hina as a cure
Instrumentality effectively turns humanity into one being, a new angel.
SEELE wanted humanity to become god, Gendo wanted to reunite with Yui and Rei who had the power to do any of this, gave the choice to a fucking little 14yo beta faggot so he could be "happy".
Then rebuild had to happen
Not him, but I actually watched EOE before anything else.
You left out the part where he wanted to untang everyone too.
The whole point is to rip Yui out of 01, as evidenced by the episode where they already have the technology to get Shinji out but know it only works if he wants out in the firstplace.
Gendo is about control.
Well no fucking wonder you don't know what the hell is going on, you didn't watch END OF EVANGELION
>being this new
I was ok an hour later.
Better watch something uplifting, like New Getter or Gintama.
>not knowing of our lord and savior
A mastermind or a hack depending on which part of the EVA fanbase you ask.
I did not.
That's not Ishikawa.
All of it, every time.
What I meant when I said I watched the flash was that I watched the Tang'd flash.
70 mins, most of it is recap, but some is very interesting/new
Anon I'm sorry, but you're too retarded.
-couldn't afford the dvds
-didn't know any better, and it was one of the rare times an anime aired on my satellite service
-Adult Swim hadn't started airing NGE yet.
It blew my mind and got me interested in the series proper, so I don't regret starting from that point.
EVA is the pinnacle of Japanese animation, no other anime can compare
Stop it anon, stop and leave.
and stay leave,
What the fuck am I supposed to do when someone uses a term I don't know? I Google it and try to find out.
How about you just use the actual title of the film?
What? The fuck? Is going on?
Neon Genesis? Evangelion?
Well, Gendo really did have selfish intentions for Instrumentality, so I suppose that's why she granted Shinji's wish instead.
>little 14yo beta faggot
Hey man, don't say that. He's kind of a qt3.14
>he uses googles
>instead of just watching the god fucking dammed show to figure it out
It's not hard anon.
I'm just RPing as Asuka ;)
TANG'D! RAD MY POST! TANG'D! I WAS TALKING ABOUT TANG'D!
You spoiled it. I'm not watching anything anymore.
Yeah, if you were to watch the show, while just not being brain dead and paying just enough attention to make your brain realize there's something going on in front of it, you could with just some effort figure out what the fuck "Tang'd" means you fuckwad.
It's from Rebuild.
So this is trolling. Huh.
Gave what choice?
>NGE changed my life!
Fuck off underage scum
You want to understand Evangelion? Read this.
No. It's narrow to say that about someone. There could be a lot of reasons as to why he and others say that. Usually, this comes from a lack of faith. People without faith tend to become depressed and easily influenced by external factors. This is why a lot of atheists usually get depressed after losing faith in God, losing a reason to exist etc..
Sorry, but I have to do this.
>Me 'n' ma niggas tryna get it, ya bish
>tfw you relate your own weird relationship with a redhead German girl uncomfortably well to the scene(s) between 1:00 and 1:05 in EoE
Why should I hate that site?
You strangled real life Asuka?
So much tang and Kawuguu
If you want to join the people who talk about Eva, on /a/, you need to answer an important question. Who do you think is the best girl?
>implying tsuntsun is not best girl
Is OP even here anymore?
We all know the answer to that one.
Most of /a/ would say Rei, but what do they know
one-quarter of /a/ actually
I doubt anyone could even bump faces with Asuka or Rei.
You dun made the thread too early OP.
Just wait until you finish it
>Name your dick Asuka
>2x the satisfaction from strangling it
Obviously Shinji or Asuka.
>implying Kaworu is even good enough to be anything but average
>Outscored by Maya
I'm one of the few but still many who say Misato. Rei and Auska are just to broken for my taste, Misato at least knows how to manage her emotions for the most part.
I liked Ritsuko a bit more after noticing these.
>implying Kaworu is even good enough to be anything but below average
well if shinji is on the list he deffinetly wins.
Someone is conspicuosly absent from that list.
>tfw Ritsuko was in on Kaji being an inside and that her "grandmother" wasn't really her grandmother, but Kaji's employer
Rei is best grill.
>Moe fagshit still a problem
Are you the OP?
There are people who seriously cried after they watched Evangelion?
There are also people who seriously cried after they watched Madoka.
I'm not a 14 year old girl, so I wouldn't understand why.
But Madoka is actually tragic, Evangelion is just inspiring me to be a better person.
>tfw Rei dies
>tfw Asuka comes back from the dead
>tfw Shinji stops choking Asuka
Eva is a tragic series.
Reminds me a lot of that faggot Eren.
Cried watching Madoka. No regrets whatsoever- it was justified in my belief. Didn't even feel emotional during Eve. Wouldn't forgive myself if I cried.
I see the anime and I can relate. It's fucked up. Everyone in it is fucked up. I relate to Shinji and I understand the others. None of them make me feel emotional. There's no reason for them to.
Eva? There. Jesus Christ. Disregard me whole post due to a typo.
I'm not involved in the little conversation you're having there; my autism just flared up.
It's all the same fan-base, we're just tsundere about him.
No, but I do feel tears welling whenever this plays.
Thanks for finding the OST I couldn't find you lovely faggot. I think there was another one I couldn't find. Shit, dude, 66 tracks is just too much to listen to. I just skimmed through them and this being one of them.
I didn't cry but I did feel a vast void for EOE (with help of me losing literally all my friends and working 40-52 hours a week in the grocery store) I had no one I could talk to about it, and because there was no one to talk to, I only became more aware of just how lonely I was.
Do you remember where the OP instrumental version is? It's a really slow version using the violin. It's played in the last episode.
There's no reason any sane person should ever watch D&R, it was pointless.
Good or Don't be
I personally recommend The Birthday of Ayanami. It's not the full soundtrack, but it's got some really good songs from it along with a couple of remixes.
Good or Don't Be I think.
It's also in The Birthday of Ayanami, if that helps.
Half the fan base is not sane, and I like the musical snippets and the way its structured as a thematic rather than a chronological recap. I watch it whenever nostalgia strikes but can't rewatch the whole show. then just follow it with EoE.
How do I suck your dick through the internet? Let me buy you a drink and thencarry you home without taking advantage of you
I invite you to go and read the manga Oyasumi Punpun. If you're into that whole paradigm-altering, life-changing fiction thing.
There's Good or Don't Be, and then there's The Heady Feeling of Freedom.
I'm pretty sure you're looking for The Heady Feeling of Freedom.
>Why didn't you guys recommend me this astounding anime?
S-sorry what? Have you spent a day on /a/?
The only reason you should watch D&R is if you feel like doing some serious fanwanking.
There are a few things included in the movie that aren't shown in the series, but a lot of it is pretty subtle.
>The Heady Feeling of Freedom.
That was the one
He's looking for Heady Feeling of Freedom
I think I read like thirteen chapters into that before dropping it. I thought it was an extremely elaborate troll by /a/ to deceive news into thinking they were reading some deep shit, only to find out it was FUCKING BULLSHIT.
Lurk moar. Much, much, much more please.
Same thing could be said for anything else considered brilliant. Also, what are news?
Personally, I like Good or Don't Be more.
>carry you home without taking advantage of you
Why not just suck his dick anyway?
He's this married guy who's favorite Meguca is Homura and still has hardcore homolust for the guy who directed Sailor Moon.
What are news?
>hardcore homolust for the guy who directed Sailor Moon.
I've seen this before, but where dies it come from?
From his loins.
shame. Shouldve stuck with it. I consider the animes and mangi sheer entertainment for the most part, but I'm pretty sure punpun will stick with me for a good long time. It's not deep the first few chapters in, but mind you the story spans years.
I feel sorry for you, mate. After Eva you are going to have to accept the fact that no other anime will be capable of giving the same astonishing, overwhelming experience.
Some early sketches of Kaworu had him with the exact same hairstyle as Ikuhara.
I knew Anno hated his fans, but this made me see the series from a completely different angle. The rebuilds make so much more sense reading this.
That's actually a realization I came to after watching Madoka as my first anime and then watching a few others after. It crushed me. I can admit, the story in this is fucking heavy. It's deep. It's amazing and astounding, but it didn't give me that experience Madoka did. I think another big part of it was because I don't have much sympathy toward this subject. I do but I don't. I've been through the worst of depression, as entitled as it sounds, it's true. I dealt with it and moved on. When I see people falling into depression and truly confused about what to do, I have huge amounts of sympathy and try to help. When I see people like Anno or Eva, people who just accept the darkness and drown themselves into despair, bitching or complaining, expressing the bullshit of depression while not doing anything to fix it, the people who give up and don't care, I don't have that sympathy for them. I don't have 'that' sympathy meaning the sympathy the has me feel truly bad for them
The kind of sympathy that makes me think that they deserve better. That they shouldn't be in this position and a strong sense of pity. Though I do want to help those people still, I do not feel much for them. Shit, I didn't realize how much I typed. I'm not OP. Forgot to mention that.
I like this version the most, but just my opinion
I downloaded both. They're great.
>Starting with Madoka
It's posts like these that make me thankful for starting out into anime with shit like Naruto and the other big three. It got me aquainted with most of the common tropes, I get a simple dose of many things, and I was really able to appreciate the leap of quality between the average anime and top-tier works such as Madoka and Evangelion.
more like top-kek
I agree. Three anime after Madoka I was desperately wishing I started with stuff more like Naruto. I've been wanting to get into anime for a really long time and didn't because I, for some unknown reason, thought it had too deep a backdrop, so when I first watched Madoka I thought to myself "Wow. If this is just a typical anime then just think how great others must be!"...yeah...how fucking great.
Madoka is all right. I wouldn't put it next to Eva but after as certain quality threshold it's more a matter of opinion & taste.
>Guys, The Lance of Longitude
I thought there was something about a night at the hotsprings where Anno got turned down?
Once upon a time I would have called you a newfag but now I kind of enjoy seeing how people react to watching serious anime for the first time ever. Watching your anime cherry get popped arouses me.
I'm still trying to get over the fact that Evangelion is 20 years old now.
Shit bothers me like no other.
You know what's even freakier? 2015 was the far, far future back when Eva was released, but it's almost here.
I guess Evangelion 4.0 will be released in 2015 so they can get all meta as fuck on us.
>Seele wanted the third impact
It's because they want that the humanity become ""gods"" or angels with the EVAS
>You know what's even freakier? 2015 was the far, far future back when Eva was released, but it's almost here.
I wonder at times if that's why the made 3.0 take place 14 years in the future.
Just because Anno felt like having the movies stay at 2015 was just too close for comfort.
Finished the directors cuts. Going to watch EoE and maybe skim over Death & Rebirth.
>Evangelion is 20 years old now
Which means he can shitpost here now.
Shinji's been able to shitpost for longer than 4chan has even existed.
Shit, Shinji would be 33 right now if he aged properly.
Glad someone articulated this. I've been spouting this myself actually, from experience actually. You make some of your best work when you escape feeling like utter shit. And I've always felt like how he described Anno and people suffering depression, mainly how it's mitigated by damn near everyone. Either be idiots who aren't actually depressed claiming to be, or shits who think it's fake.
Hell I've written elaborate works of fiction in response to being told to cheer up or get over it that are basically subtle middle fingers. And the response is always just, "wow this is really good. Can you do some more?"
I've got to tap into that more if it gave Anno them fat stacks o cash.
>maybe skim over Death & Rebirth.
Nah man, if you're going to watch that shit, you need to do it frame by frame.
All or nothin' baby.
>Why thoses mech are called Eva ?
In the Bible, God removed a rib of Adam to create Eve
It's seem that those mech are the copies of thoses Angel (Lilith for the Eva without the s2 motors and Adam for the kawugu Eva).
So If you look carrefuly thoses mecha could be called Eve and not Eva. But Anno want more butthurts
That would mean he was born in 81
>. You make some of your best work when you escape feeling like utter shit.
Couldn't agree more
There's a lot I could type, but it would all go to vain especially since it would be way too much typing for anyone to read but basically I want to say that a lot of what he portrayed was amazingly accurate. I feel like I could read what they were going to say before they said it, which has never happened when watching anime. Their entire thought processes when questioning was completely accurate. It was really something else.
Just saw 3.0 in the movies in fairfax, va.
Saw 1.11 Good
Saw 2.22 Great
Saw 3.0 ......
You got me mother fucker..
You really fucking tricked me..
Now I know why you got fucking death threats and had to make End of Eva. Which is funny because I thought the end of the series was fine and whatever.
I don't think a single person left that theater happy.
>It's seem that those mech are the copies of thoses Angel (Lilith for the Eva without the s2 motors and Adam for the kawugu Eva).
I thought that all of the evas except for 01 were clones of Adam, and that 01 was lilith.
Am I an unwashed Plebeian for liking 1.0 and 2.0 but not 3.0? Is there something in that movie I missed?
>It's seem that those mech are the copies of thoses Angel (Lilith for the Eva without the s2 motors and Adam for the kawugu Eva).
I thought that all of the evas except for 01 were clones of Adam, and that 01 was lilith.
I actually only started and finished Eve in my backlog so I could go see the 3.0 movie on the 16th. Going to be fucking amazing. Going to watch 1.0 2.0 and then 3.0 in theatres. SHITS GOING TO BLOW MY MIND!
the first think i thought right after Evangelion ending was
"man, Evas are cool, i think i want the toys"
oh yeah, i don't get what "proverbial "anime-virgin" by OP means
A lot of fans were unhappy with 3.0. Too many questions, no answers.
>SHITS GOING TO BLOW MY MIND!
Shall I say shit's going to be SO cash?
why anno need 2deep4u theme for toys commercial?
Rei is best girl. Misato is best friend. Asuka is best tasting.
You shouldn't lose your head over it. 3.0 was not that good.
I have my hopes up for EoE then.
>all these head puns
EoE is a masterpiece.
No, you're pretty much in the same boat as everyone else in that regard.
I would kill to see that in theaters.
So why did they show all the rebuilds instead? Is it just faggot fanbase "such gud grafics" pandering?
I actually thought the same shit as you dude
See this to see how your idea turns out
>Rei was probably the one Anno was most furious about, as by trying to break down how an emotionally-dependent, submissive fuckdoll would be REALLY CREEPY and NOT OKAY, he only had her end up being an iconic cultural wet dream.
But I do know some girls like that irl, they are all extremely unattractive and creepy. There's very little in anime that translates over to real life, for example, the way female voice actors talk when their voices are coupled with anime characters is adorable, when you transfer those mannerisms and speech to real life it just makes me very uncomfortable, it's very infantile and it honestly creeps me out (I don't know how your average Japanese feels about this kind of behavior). People in anime and manga aren't even people, they're perfect abstractions of human beings.
If he wants to really deconstruct why shounen tropes are idiotic and why nothing in mecha anime work in real life he should have done a live-action show, but then again, I guess he wouldn't have gotten any money for it and Eva would have never reached any audience (whereas it just went completely over the heads of the audience as an anime).
Funny enough, Anno actually delved into live action work after NGE. I haven't seen any of them myself, but that's probably because they were terrible.
>Is it just faggot fanbase "such gud grafics" pandering?
That's somewhat been the case from the beginning. From what I remember, Evangelion was pretty visually stunning when it first game out, especially in regards to how the Eva's moved.
I mean, even if they were fighting fucking octohedrons and shit, the fights were goddamn impressive
I can't bring myself to hate 3.0. I dislike it, but I don't hate it. Probably because I'm just very easily swayed by pretty animation.
I guess I'll get over this faggotry eventually.
Because EoE is nearly 17 years old? Unless you're asking why Anno decided to make the Rebuilds, which answers can vary from killing teh rei to expanding the franchise like Gundam.
Love & Pop wasn't that good but I recommend Shiki-Jitsu. It's got the same ambiance that NGE had.
I'm guessing they're not on nyaa or anything?
I think EoE will answer a lot for you.
Budget and time limitations explain the last couple of episodes in NGE. The people that are totally satisfied with those last episodes are 1) Hideaki Anno (so he claims) and 2) the most rabid Eva fans.
Those episodes are a desperate pantomime of the real conclusion in EoE. Technically, sure they might be telling the same story, but without EoE to really cap the series, Eva would've been forgotten long ago.
Yes it was Lilith. Lilith is the Imperfect life with suffering, destruction, ect.. It's the humanity
Adam is the Perfect life, regenerating, ect. with the famous s2 motors.
And the s2 motor was the ""origin"" of the second impact that destroyed the body of Adam (?). The truth is that SEELE want to duplicate those s2 motors for the new EVA series. And it was a semi fail:
sucess because the copie was done
fail because the body of Adam was destroyed.
But Adam's soul reincarnated as Kaworu
In 3.33 when Kawugu die shinji is crying, after that Mari eject shinji from the EVA 13. In that moment you can see Kawugu leaving shinji ? Why ? Cuz the soul of Adam (kawugu) stayed in the EVA 13 and Shinji is now out of the EVA 13
Before his death Kaworu said that he will be again with Shinji
Yeah, other than the occasional weird faces it's a pretty good looking movie. And I'm sure the music deceived plenty of people into thinking the story had poignancy. But you got to learn to see past that.
I don't know I got them a looong time ago. I'm sure you can find them somewhere
Found some torrents at kick ass. Surprisingly enough, both films got 4 stars on Amazon and IMDB respectively.
Like I said, I think Shiki Jitsu is actually good. Love & Pop maybe I just didn't feel it, Interesting premise but most notable thing for me is its got a shot of a cum stained hand
>most anime makers are basically autistic
That's pretty interesting.
I figured Anno had just gave in to the fanbase and gave then want they want just for some dosh. He apparently isn't depressed anymore, after all.
But I thought otaku were the ones enjoying the fujoshi bait in the first place?
I always thought Anno looked like he had some form of aspergers.
It was presumptuous of me to underestimate the master, forgive my foolishness oh great Anno!
They ask why they haven't aged in 16 years, she says it's because of the Eva's curse
>But I thought otaku were the ones enjoying the fujoshi bait in the first place?
No, that would be the fujoshi. And yes, it should be clear by now that Anno and Co are milking the franchise for all of its worth.
I'm really hoping Evanjellybuns 4.0 isn't episode 25/26-tier happy.
I want some kind of mindfuck from this buildup.
I just realized.
This is what the Aku no Hana anime was trying to accomplish.
But of course, we all know how well it did financially.
What's the word for that feeling you get when you have an orgasm in your brain?
So...how about that "Both of you, dance like you want to win" OST huh?
that's where all orgasms happen
It's Anno's way of saying his fanbase wouldn't buy 28 year old Asuka merch. Fucking Japan.
It's not my absolute favorite out of the entire ost though
Shiiit nigga, that's a good read.
>all dat everything
10/10 would waifu
You may have seen the deleted live action short with the evangelion characters. It was originally supposed to be coupled with EoE i think, but got scrapped. Still, you can find it on you tube probably. I wonder if it's included in the DVD versions?
God dammit Anno.
>I'm really hoping Evanjellybuns 4.0 isn't episode 25/26-tier happy.
Seeing how many people spout bullshit about EoE, he'll probably make it as confusing and depressing as possible if he really does hate us.
A lot of Evafags disliked how EoE was so "depressing" in the first place.
Now that I think of it, there really isn't much Misato merchandise is there?
Never doubt him again.
Oh boy, what's the context behind this one?
Anything other than pure, unsullied virgins are unacceptable to NGE's fanbase, you know this.
>there will never be a spin-off about the adventures of Sky Captain Misato
Nope. Really too bad, I'd order a case of Eva branded beer with her face on it.
fuck what the fuck is this feeling
on the edge of tears but I don't know why
I had no idea that subconscious memory was this prevalent in my emotions
It's pretty hard to choose. There's so many of them that I enjoy.
One of them is The Beast II for NGE.
Probably The Flow of Emptiness from EoE, which is right behind Komm Susser Tod.
That's a shame, it's pretty unrealistic to think that an attractive woman anywhere could make it to 28 without having sex at least once.
Well at least we can drink to that.
Some chick's been schlicking in the library?
And here I was hoping that it was a trap.. ;_;
That's some pretty good taste you've got there, Anon.
Future mind-broken Shinji uses girl as masturbatory aid.
As in masturbating? Because that looks like cum in her hand so I assume she was jerking some guy off.
>The other name of the song is "If I Can't Be Yours"
>It's the song playing as Rei sacrifices her life to save shinji
>The Flow of Emptiness
>Not Hajimari e no Touhi
GODDAMNIT Japan. You fucked it for everyone
>Why didn't you recommend
There are a dozen or so eva topics on /a/ at any given time.
never go full baka
I'm going to ask now before I continue EoE. Why the fuck is Asuka unconscious at the start?
oaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa ooohhhha aaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa
Oh shit, that one too.
Seriously, the entire soundtrack was amazing.
Every EVA thread begins with some form of: "I just watched this for the first time..."
Every. Fucking. One.
Are you sure you watched NGE? She got mind raped by Arael.
Oh. So it's taking place in that time.
Rebuild convinced me that Anno just got lucky with NGE. To willfully throw away so many missed opportunities to do actually interesting things with characters and setting for the sake of merchandising you have to have you head planted pretty firmly in the unknown regions of your ass.
Most likely from cutting her wrists.
Wasn't luck. As another post said, you do your best work when you're escaping feeling like shit.
That's the manga.
This guy >>100218265 is correct but the blood was cut from the TV version and her arms are fine in EoE so it's understandable confusion.
I think the problem has to do with Anno not being depressed anymore. Like some other Anon mentioned earlier in the thread, you can crank out some creative shit when you're feeling like shit yourself.
zeruel is best girl
ramiel a shit
Whoa shit, is that Shinji underneath?
that's because Maya is best girl
Probably not, in his and the other producers' point of view. They wouldn't have gotten their dosh if they changed anything simply because Eva's fans can't like change.
It's a great concept but the retarded fans are the ones that are really pushing it away.
have any of you queers read Demian by Hesse? I read it right after finishing NGE and EoE and the similarities hit me like a ton of bricks
really? i thought shinji and asuka were interesting but eh. watched it 2 or 3 years ago and i don't plan on a rewatch ever.
I was thinking more of the Asuka & Kaji scene on the ship. P.S. notice the train tracks.
That may have been the spark but I think he definitely just lucked into creating one of those perfect pop culture creations like so many before him.
He very well may have brought in a new generation of fans with something new and fresh. I think the problem was he really doesn't know what to do with the franchise he was left holding because a significant part of it's success was luck and it's hard to get that lucky twice so he just phoned it in.
>mfw the actual lyrics start
Good tastes anon
Damn all these similarities to EVA. Next thing you're going to tell me is that Anno actually brought in an albino who suddenly sprouted vaginas everywhere.
I wouldn't spoil that for you
t-thanks I guess
>Just finished NGE in 2014
>Being a proverbial "anime-virgin"
>Slice of life
>I could possibly relate to the protagonist
>why didn't you guys recommend me
The worst part about all this is that OP isn't actually trolling.
Evafags are fucking retards.
That said, the end of the series really does make you feel like crap.
Threads like these happen all the time.
It's why Evangelion is a show that /a/ will never stop discussing.
Japan please stop, I'm sorry but you can't be white.
can't read german
Watch gurren lagann next just to kick out the sadness and feel the awsomeness of TTGL
>When I see people falling into depression and truly confused about what to do, I have huge amounts of sympathy and try to help. When I see people like Anno or Eva, people who just accept the darkness and drown themselves into despair, bitching or complaining, expressing the bullshit of depression while not doing anything to fix it, the people who give up and don't care, I don't have that sympathy for them.
Thank you. You've described precisely what it is I don't like about Eva and why I absolutely cannot stand watching it. It explores a depressive state of mind that cannot grasp any sense of meaning or purpose, but instead of offering compassion and understanding, it seems to mock the idea of trying to find such things in the first place and actively sabotages any attempts to escape from the depths of such a psychic hell. It seems to perhaps offer certain things, only to take them away at the last second in order to leave you baffled and in a deranged and confused mental state.
