What the fuck did I just watch?
SERIOUSLY WHAT THE FUCK
Asuka is contaminated with angel DNA.
Kaworu died to stop fourth impact.
Wille was going to tell Shinji everything but too late.
Shinji was the angels all along.
All according to plan by Gendo.
> what the fuck did i just watch?
the third movement in a four piece cinematic masterpiece
>"What have I done..."
>What the fuck did I just watch?
A movie that went nowhere and yet, accomplished so much.
his facial hair seriously looks like pubes
Can all of us come to an agreement that the Rebuilds aren't canon?
Let's not start this shit again. We all know it's obviously a sequel.
A non-canon sequel.
I don't even care at this point. There's just too many theories out there I'm just going to be waiting patiently till 4.0 and hope that answers everything.
Will someone explain the hate behind 3.33? Seriously, it's felt the most Eva out of all the rebuilds so far. It left me wondering "what the fuck is going on?" Of course it made no sense, just like NGE made no sense without EoE.
I'm pretty sure the point of the rebuilds so far was to destroy what people expected. 1.0 was pretty much a remade NGE with some stuff changed. It got people complaisant that rebuild was just a remake. Then 2.0 came out and got everyone hype that Eva was turning into their generic giant robot show where the MC suddenly becomes a bad-ass.
Then 3.0 happened. It took everything you were growing to expect and politely said "Fuck you. Fuck you for thinking this is what Eva should be." Eva is a story where the characters are imperfect. A story where, had these people opened up to eachother, maybe all this wouldn't have happened. That's exactly why 3.0 was so fucking messed up. Everything would have been fine if someone would have told Shinji what the fuck was going on and explained the past 14 years. But they didn't.
Just wait until 4.0 before you all call Rebuild shit.
It's going to have explosions and some cool music. Don't get your hopes to high,
Fine, then I'll wait for Rebuild of End of Evangelion to explain shit
That means he has never shaved in his life.
You need to go watch ReDeath now, it's the only way.
Eva Wars Episode III.XXXIII: Revenge of the Tang
>tfw Kaworu will never tenderly love your asshole
>Will someone explain the hate behind 3.33?
Look, 3.0 looked good. That shit sounded good and it had a a lot of "cool" scenes. But we expected more, why? Because it's fucking Evangelion and it disappointment in both plot, character development and DEEPness. Asuka and Misato are pretty much ruined. 14 years of canon character development...LOST. Kaworu. Didn't do shit. His head explodes. Epic.
See what I'm getting at? It's not a bad movie, it's just disappointing...if that makes any sense. .
>just like NGE made no sense without EoE.
Except that's wrong.
The best part of seeing 3.0 in theaters was the collective laughter when his more intimate scenes with Shinji came up
... But that's true.
>Taking advantage of a poor and confused celestial alien who has lost his memories and is trapped in a 14 year old's body, in order to satisfy your sexual desires
Yet you faggots were eating up 1.0 and 2.0.
3.0 wasn't about anything that you just mentioned. That was all there to keep the normals who aren't invested in the story happy. 3.0 was about taking everything you were expecting of Rebuild and shattering it. Now 4.0 can take those pieces and make something new.
As EoE put it: The fate of destruction is the joy of rebirth.
You can't honestly say you were satisfied with the TV run of NGE, even with the directors cuts edits.
There was this video I saw once that was the duet scene but edited so that Shinji played awfully. Kaworu then takes the choker and it then cuts to his head blowing up with the last 6 notes of Cruel Angel Thesis with a montage of screencaps with the last one being "What the heck is going on"
I'm sure one person knows what I'm talking about. Shame it's taken down for whatever reason.
He's actually 15. His human body was spawned from Adam on the day of 2nd Impact.
Would you have been happy had Anno made it 1:1 with the TV series but with better animation?
I can't wait to make this thread when i finally watch this. I'm saving it for a special occasion.
a bloatgirls release of Evangelion 3.33
Nonono, see Anno made 3.0 bad and disappointing so the viewers can empathize with the despair and disappointment of the characters. As expected of the master.
Let's be honest, we all know what has to be in 4.0, the 2009 remix of Zankouku na Tenshi.
I like the rebuilds, though I'd like a bluray version of the original series as well. Kind of like a Dragonball Kai
Not if you were paying attention, no. It's made clear that Gendo started the Human Instrumentality Project and that this project would combine everyone into one being. The last two episodes are Shinji's thoughts and experiences while going through this process. All of that you learn without EoE. And that's all you need to know to understand the ending of NGE.
I never said it was satisfactory. But it did make sense.
tfw when 4.0 is going to be a super robot wars style iteration where the ending scene is the cast of all of Daicon Film's greatest hits thanking their loyal fans for a wonderful 30+ years of support and viewership. Gainax announces it's re-branding and Anno says he's taking a vacation to hang with his mentor Miyazaki.
The final words of the film are uttered by that Bunny Girl, "Thank you!"
It is the destiny of eva shiteaters to never be happy no matter what.
NO MATTER WHAT, EVA FANS WILL NEVER BE HAPPY.
And that's what this is all about. That said, 3.33 sucks hard.
Way to shittalk yourself.
I would cry bitch tears in the theater if this happened. I'm doing a Gainax panel at my local con for their 30th and this would be the most amazing thing for me.
They actually license Twilight this time for the credits sequence.
The Rebuild films in general are inferior to the original series in terms of depth and complexity. It's not because it thwarted our expectations, but because it took all of these brilliant concepts from its predecessor and simply BASTARDIZED it with simplicity, CGI, robot cartwheels and power rangers routines. It completely fails to deliver any thought complexity outside of "whoa, what was that red spinny fourth impact all about."
I personally don't think that it's bad, I just think that it's DIFFERENT. It's a different kind of eva than the one the long-time fans are used to. Eva is really a challenging, uncomfortable experience, and the rebuilds are just too accessible and understandable to be a satisfying eva experience.
tl;dr the rebuilds are a waste of potential lacking in thought complexity.
Such high quality.
Was it ever explained how that actually worked?
They pulled the spear out of Adam's body, causing him to go on a rampage..
At exactly what point did they fuse the Lilin DNA with the body?
Unless someone finds the cels and gets them into a scanner, i think this is the best we've got.
It's what Eva would have been if Anno wasn't depressed. Imagine if the rebuilds and the original series swapped places, how do you think people would react?
Always embarrassing when that happens.
They mentioned several times in the series and in the manga about something called the "Contact Experiment". Basically, it was just a little experiment using a person to..contact, physically I guess, Adam and see what reaction it would have and crap. Human DNA got mixed into Adam and on the day of 2nd Impact one of the Angels came out fucked up. It had the body of a human and was soulless. SEELE used that to their advantage and implemented Adam's soul, which was dislodged from him during the explosion, into the soulless body. And thus, Kaworu was born.
Not sure how it is in Rebuild, since there appears to be four Adams now.
I think it is true, because Gendo isn't ever shown kicking off Instrumentality. The problem is that you're missing a couple pieces of the story at Episode 24. Kaworu is killed, Shinji is despondent, and all of a sudden, clip show with all of the characters trying to beat the message of the show into your head.
It depends on what you mean by "makes sense." If it's an understanding of the narrative (not the backstory and what things actually are), I don't think it's reasonable to get the full picture from just the TV show.
Anno's depression was one of the best things that could have ever happened to evangelion.
It made for a much more complex, challenging and HUMAN experience.
The rebuilds to me feel shallow. They're trying to emulate the original series, but almost all of the aspects of the original that made it great are not present. It feels LAZY. Seriously, go back and find ONE aspect of the current films that sparks some kind of controversy or complex thought.
If you can, great. But I and many others couldn't, and it left us feeling detached and dissatisfied.
>even wanting to take advantage of him at all
>not taking advantage of someone more worthy of your attention
>standards so low he has to pick an albino faggot
Such plebian tastes.
Gotta be honest, that piano playing was some of the most genuinely happy I've ever been watching characters interacting on screen.
0 character development and full time robots fighting robots
Shinji came back from death / coma, the whole world is differnte, everything he loved or cared about is against him, and the only thing he carea bout is some albino boypussy and some autistic bitch books
That's pretty gay bro.
They didn't license Twilight for the Daicon fan films, so there's never been a commercial release.
The videos you see on Youtube were ripped from LDs from the 80's.
If they licensed Twilight and did a commercial release I would fucking cry.
I think you have a misconception about what the Rebuilds are supposed to be or maybe I'm putting too much faith in Anno. Eva isn't about complexity, it's about doing what you wouldn't expect from it. NGE went from looking like a generic monster of the week mech anime to a story about the cast of characters and their tumbling down. Now with Rebuild of Evangelion, people expected this from the get go. They expected this deep interplay and challenging motifs. They expected the unexpected.
That's exactly what 1.0 and 2.0 gave you. The Rebuilds had to lull you into a sense of familiarity before it could really do anything different. In order to become the next big thing, Rebuild had to top Evangelion.
So it destroyed Evangelion.
3.0 took everything you thought you knew coming out of 2.0 and turned it on it's head. Now, just like in NGE, you have no fucking clue what's going on. That uncertainty is causing no small amount of resentment. You were expecting NGE, what you got was something completely different. You were expecting Asuka Langley Soryu, what you got was Asuka Shinikami. You aren't getting your complex characters because these aren't those complex characters. This isn't Neon Genisis Evangelion, this is the next thing. We'll just need to wait until 4.0 to see how this all turns out.
I wonder how sick of Evangelion Anno is by now. That and his opinion of his younger, depressed self. I'd imagine while he's probably rolling in a fair bit of money he probably feels a bit pidgeonholed.
I thought it was pointless fun and enjoyed it. Makes it even better after a friend pointed out that the whole piano thing was probably to help with the synchronization with the duel plug thing in Eva 13.
and no thermal expansion, like seriously wtf
a shitty rebuild of a good series
Your post is all the proof you need. This is the controversy that Rebuild sparked. This is the point, to destroy all your preconceived notions about Eva.
Last time I talked about that with someone on here, general consensus was that the masters had been destroyed/split up between the original Daicon staff. There might not be anything left to put back together and re-release.
Remember this, guys?
>we expected good writing so we're getting shit writing
That really doesn't fly. This isn't some kind of brilliant meta-narrative because even if it were the intention, it wouldn't have a point. There's nothing to prove here other than Anno's own incompetence.
"Jokes on you, I was only PRETENDING to be retarded" still makes you a retard.
>Evangelion 4.0 come out
>movie in the final momment
>People suicide world wide
You're a full on homo.
Do you know how pretentious you sound?
>This isn't Neon Genisis Evangelion, this is the next thing.
But after 4.0...that's it. This was the "next thing"? I think Rebuild was made with the purpose of rebooting the series, the Rebuild films will serve as the new building stones for a new TV series. The new world 3.0 has brought to the table kinda correlates with that idea.
The 4th rebuild better give me a happy fucking ending or I'm going to be slightly depressed
Evangelion, SEASON 2
Which has NOTHING to do with the original!
If you want to rock the boat you do things like drop characters from the main cast completely or totally change their role in the plot. Anno's just burnt out creatively and it shows.
That's not controversy. That's confusion. There's a difference.
>Oh shit, I can't respond to that, better insult his character.
Fuck, what was the name for this logical fallacy?
Maybe it's best we don't.
Or the rebuilds are there to see if remastering the series is worth it or not.
>People suicide world wide
I wish I was this high right now.
You and me both brother.
The ending to 2.0 felt incredibly empty to me.
Maybe it's the negative mindset I had before I saw it, but compared to EoE, seeing Shinji turning into a complete badass and tearing Rei out of that Eva accompanied by the pretty visuals was just so bland.
The entirety of 3.0 was even worse.
How much more Nerv branded merchandise are you willing to buy?
I stopped agreeing with you when you said "2.0".
There seems to be a common misconception that 2.0 is an acceptable Evangelion film. While it is an excellent anime movie given its own merits, it still lacks all of the subtleties and complexities of the original.
Though you can make the argument that "Rebuilds are their own thing," you can't forget that they don't exist in a vacuum. While the original series still exists, there will always be comparisons between them, ESPECIALLY if the sequel theory is true.
if Rebuild 4.44 is rotoscoped then Anno have won over his failure that is the moe character rei
One of many Perfect Endings yet to come.
I know a lot of people liked it regardless, but I think it meant a little more than 'lol he's a badass now'. The big obvious clue in quite a number of anime is the whole red/blue split. In Evangelion and EoE, Shinji chose Red. Simon chose Blue in Gurren Lagann, Naota chose red, etc.
In the end of 2.0 Shinji chose blue, but not just that, it was his coming of age. He chose blue not because it was thrust upon him, or because forward with him, he chose it because he wanted it and goddamnit he was gonna have it come hell or high water. The snapping point, if any of this still make sense, isn't that he was throwing a tantrum, but that he was taking a step forward because his vision of how it was going to work out was the only one he wanted to happen so he was throwing his all into making it as such. 3.0 was more of a 'yeah, no kid, you can't do that.' slap in the face.
I'm not going to lie, that looks like a pretty cool toaster. I don't even think scans of those character portraits have ever been released.
Would you charge your car at an EVA branded recharging station?
>your car still runs on fossil fuels
I forget the exact wording, but I recall Anno saying in an interview that the point behind the Rebuilds was to fix the stagnation that was overtaking the industry. The point is to change what people expect from Eva.
But that's exactly what the rebuilds are doing, completely changing character roles and seeing how that effects the plot.
That's my point though. Eva 1.0 was regular NGE with some subtle changes to set the stage. 2.0 devolved eva into some generic fun action. 3.0 is "fuck you what the fuck is going on this makes no sense shiiiit."
The rebuilds aren't their own thing. I don't think they're made to emulate NGE, they're meant to destroy and rebuild it.
Shinji didn't exactly choose Asuka...
There's Mari and Kaworu pump, but no Rei?
There can be no discussions on the internet which lead to anything good, as it is a sea of trolls trolling trolls. An ocean of piss and lulz which will never change and no moderators can possibly handle the constant shithurricane the internet has become. Nothing can save the anime industry, because the industry ruined itself through pandering to the worst of fans that never see sunlight or know what a real woman looks like besides their female family members.
Anime is dead, but it keeps living on in the worst form it has seen yet. The moe fad engendered the hivemind of shit we see spreading. The faggots who delusions revolve around having real waifus who love them and take their sperm whenever they like. Who cook for them, clean up after them and generally slave to make them happy, but they are never happy, because they know, deeply in the backs of their mind, that they are permanently fucked to be virgins beyond death. No one can do anything about the terminal illness of the anime industry except kill it with Kill la Kill or whatever smoking piece of shit some studio in Japan thinks is a good idea or is obviously trolling the nerdbase with a stream of horrible diarrhea unfortunately called animation.
I'd buy a sweatshirt if it had a tiny little emblem and didn't cost $150.
I thought most of these points were obvious but I guess not. Hell, Shinji actually listens to a new track on his music player in 3.0 indicating a fresh start and shit.
That Rei's scary.
I kinda wanna buy a NERV shirt and maybe a MP Eva figure
those are the only ones that a really desire.
Yes, and it is precisely that "generic fun action" and "fuck you what the fuck is going on this makes no sense shiiiiit" that we don't like.
There's no depth to it. There's no complexity to it. It's all just printed out, shallow, accessible mainstream garbage, exactly what Eva was trying to SUBVERT.
Well, she was the only one who showed up to muster with a body that wasn't a ghostly figment of Rei, or the giant corpse of giant Rei.
Are you in the right thread?
>Not wanting to sexually ravage Kaworu
What are you, gay?
>But that's exactly what the rebuilds are doing, completely changing character roles and seeing how that effects the plot.
The characters are all basically the same. If you want to change things up do something like show us Eva without Shinji or with a Rei that isn't clones all the way down.
>exactly what Eva was trying to SUBVERT.
And now that's exactly what Anno is trying to subvert, Christ, is it that hard to understand?
If you want to show us something different why not make an altogether different fucking show instead of doing EVA?
If it was my call I would, but people want more Eva and if you're going to re-imagine it you might as well do it right.
God damn I can't wait for the shitstorm that will grace us come 4.0. I think it's safe to say that it'll be the biggest shitstorm in 4chan history, whether it be an amazing 10/10 EoE tier film or another stinker like 3.0.
The depth isn't in the story with the Rebuilds, though. The depth is in what each chapter represents. You're not supposed to like it for the story. You're supposed to appreciate it for it's deconstruction of a deconstruction.
Get rid of those and it isn't Eva. And I can't fathom how you think Rebuild anyone is like NGE anyone, except maybe Gendo.
No, it's just that I have sophisticated tastes and have no need or interest in an albino chucklefuck.
I seriously need to see a gif with 1.0 Ramiel shape shifting with a school uniform on.
a shitty movie.
seriously, why are you watching rebuild
The worst of all worlds: They announce the 'real' sequel is going to be a live action movie. On the old ADV contract.
I am going to ask you ONE question.
Is Hideaki Anno doing it right?
It's not as wrong as it could be that's for sure.
Of course I understand that. They're subverting a subversion into the thing that the subversion was trying to subvert in the first place.
They're subverting all of the things that made Eva a masterpiece to begin with. That's not good.
Those 4.0 generals are going to be five times worse than the 3.0 ones. Especially if Kaworu becomes relevant again.
>Get rid of those and it isn't Eva.
Wasn't that the point of Rebuild? To give us Eva that isn't Eva?
Exactly! They should call them Subversion of Rebuild of Evangelion
Not him, but we won't know until 4.0. That's the point I've been trying to make for a while, but everyone is still judging a puzzle without all of its pieces.
Let's clear up a misconception.
3.0 was not bad because it "makes no sense."
3.0 was bad because it was lazy and badly written. It has a plot that was enabled by every single character suddenly becoming retarded, and contains such ridiculous conveniences as "the curse of EVA (so that we can continue to sell merchandise)." There's no subtlety to anything, ruining all of the character interactions. It bludgeons you over the head with Kaworu's gayness and Shinji's complacency and ReiQ.
Anno's intentions are irrelevant when the movies are bad in an extremely elementary way.
Shinji spends all of 4.0 carrying his headless corpse around like it's weekend at Bernie's.
I'm probably gonna get so excited I'll end up watching the camrip. I did with 3.0, at 3 am in the morning. Was worth every second of it. I don't care if most people call 3.0 shit, it was like seeing a new Evangelion episode.
Amazing experience. The ending literally made me tear up. Seeing our three favorite characters we all know and love reunited by tragic circumstances, walking towards an uncertain future. Fuck...
The depth in the story might be the only thing Rebuild has going for it, actually.
Everything that made NGE good in the first place was in its characters. And it is THAT complexity that is missing from Rebuild. Nearly every single character in these films is a shallow, cardboard cut-out of their preceding counterparts, and it's disgusting. They're blatantly shitting on truly complex characters and ideas.
The fact is if you removed Rebuild from the context of the original series, MOST of the depth would be gone. It's just a generally inferior product.
>still judging a puzzle without all of its pieces.
Maybe because 3.0 really fucked the Rebuilds' path.
Actually, the rebuilds weren't spectacular to begin with.
I can't honestly imagine 4.0 redeeming everything in 90 minutes.
>they expect it to be good
>so I'm going to subvert their expectations and make it shit
>remake a 2deep4u show
>change it up to throw people off
Eva always sucked, it just sucks in a different way now. Get over it and find some better anime to watch.
That actually looks wearable.
Let's make a comparison:
Had any of the characters made an effort to connect with someone else in a meaningful way, maybe all of this could have been subverted.
Had any of these characters made an effort to talk this out maybe this all could have been subverted.
Kowaru and Shinji sleep in the same room. Shinji: "I loved him." when talking to Misato over Kowaru's death.
Piano lessons to establish a connection with these characters under time constraints that movies presents.
>Curse of EVA.
I'll give you that one.
>I'm probably gonna get so excited I'll end up watching the camrip. I did with 3.0, at 3 am in the morning. Was worth every second of it. I don't care if most people call 3.0 shit, it was like seeing a new Evangelion episode.
or you know, you could see it in theaters. I tried my hardest to get one of my close friends to watch NGE this past summmer (I succeeded, he loved it) so I wouldn't have to go alone when it comes out
AVERTED, it's AVERTED.
the rei pump is the cosplayer. she pumps her LCL menstrual fluids
Nothing, you idiot.
You're confusing an ad hominem attack with an ad hominem fallacy.
>Curse of EVA
Nothing will ever make me feel more like I was robbed than that one throw away line.
I wonder if they'll Gainax the ending again, with a 5-10 minute segment of Shinji tripping through an alternate reality that looks 100x more enjoyable than whatever was going on minutes prior.
Here's a comparison for you.
>Implying having sex with a seed of life isn't sophisticated
Get a load of this faggot.
I am okay with this.
Whether you like it or not.
Damn right you're ok with it.
I can't deny that it sucks how little the characters have been able to grow. I think this is mostly because of the time constraints that the movies present, but I'm withholding my judgement until 4.0 Maybe Anno has a plan.
Whoops, my bad. Now, taking that change into account, want to address the argument?
Give some supporting evidence that hasn't already been addressed and then we'll talk.
Well, gents. It's been a pleasure. If this thread is still up in the morning, I'll happily debate some more.
First off, the word you're looking for is "averted."
Secondly, NGE was almost subtle about its message. The plot leads to the point, the point doesn't lead to the plot. NGE was about aliens and robots and shit. The undercurrent, the motif, the theme was people and their inability to connect. Shinji was getting burned by everyone, Misato was a broken slut, and Gendo was an asshole who ruined everything because he was so butthurt about losing the one person he felt he really could connect to. It was all about showing people who got closer and got hurt. But that wasn't the narrative. RoE is fucked up because it's written backwards, which makes the actual narrative completely retarded and unbelievable. It hurts its message by assuming everybody already knows the idea, because if you didn't, you'd just think that RoE had a shit plot instead of having a point.
Same with Kaworu and Shinji. That shit was built up to. Shinji had lost everything and everyone, and there was a single person who seemed to genuinely care about him. In NGE, this felt natural. In RoE, it's as subtle as a random grand piano in a wasteland and bludgeons you over the head with this superficial bullshit. It doesn't feel genuine because Shinji doesn't have the same circumstances as before. It's too flashy, too dramatic, too much fucking Hollywood and not enough real humanity. It cheapens their relationship and retroactively shits all over the character.
>asuka's hair becomes blonde as an adult
this feels... agreeable
So she's just like Ritsuko?
>That hasn't been addressed
So what, you're just gonna ignore everything that I've said and that's been said in this thread? As if everything that has been addressed is somehow irrelevant?
Go back and respond to EVERY criticism of the film that's been brought up in this thread, and then we'll talk.
I'll seriously be avoiding Eva threads on /a/ if that happens.
why, anno, why
Shinji turns into Gendo
Asuka turns into Ritsuko
Rei turns into...
It's my biggest complaint about the picture, I'll fix it eventually I guess.
rits dyed her hair, though
Red hair was the greatest part of her appearance.
How did Kaworu fix the SDAT?
How did Kaworu take off the DSS choker?
How did Kaworu get that grand piano in there?
How did Kaworu walk outside without a suit?
You think Shinji would've gotten the hint that Kaworu wasn't human, either Shinji's gone full blown retarded or he doesn't give a fuck.
No one agrees on her hair color. It's randomly blonde.
I imagine Rei being Ritsuko and Asuka being Misato.
Kaworu transforms into Fuyutski.
Gay Space Magic
A movie that was written to spite the creepy fans and then dressed up in dialogue, animation and effects chosen specifically to seem deep.
The shitstorm will be glorious.
Her firey red hair
her beautiful blue eyes
you shouldn't change perfection
yeah, /fa/ loves the shit out of that shirt. too bad only asians can pull this type of stuff off.
Everybody needs to take shelter from a shitstorm.
The problem is, where?
Holy fucking shit short haired Asuka is the savior of the universe.
Is this a part of a comic? I would love to know the context of what's going on here.
I wouldn't go there with that artist, unless you're into bestiality and bondage.
A 10/10 masterpiece.
3.0 was best thing since EoE. Anno still has it; God is in his heaven etc.
I wonder what she smells like, Mari never gets finished telling us.
Seed of life is nothing. Seed of knowledge is where it's at.
All the seed of life can do is sit there and be a homoesexual retard with no idea how to stop that bitch Shinji from pulling those spears.
I just noticed on the NERV logo, there's a fig leaf.
The fig leaf could be referring to what Adam and Eve covered themselves with.
But anon you say that like she isn't always the savior of the universe
But that's almost exactly what I've been doing. That's why I don't feel like reiterating what's already been said. If you want to rebuttal, be my guest, but I don't like repeating myself.
I don't think Kowaru's relationship with Shinji was built up in NGE that much, given that there was only one episode. Granted, the circumstances that caused it were better, but again, I'm going to have to assume that's because of time constraints that the movies caused.
And again, the best part of RoE isn't the actual plot, but what it represents. This time, Anno isn't just flipping to random pages of the bible to find cool references, he's using it as an allegory for anime and what people expected from RoE.
Now I really need to get to bed. Hopefully this thread will survive the night. If not, I'll see you all in the next one.
And this is important how?
a shame their vanilla stuf is soo good
I don't have a slow poke slow enough for this. I'll see you after 4.0 is released.
I care about Mari more than I do about anyone else in Rebuild because I don't know anything about her. The other characters have already been done in the series. And when she turns out to be the 19th Angel in 4.0 I'm going to be mad.
Saving this shit. See you then, Anon.
>turning out to be an angel
Calling it now.
Why does Asuka's eyepatch glow?
That would just be fucking retarded. I'm sure Anno wouldn't be this insane. Mari is just Mari. Yes, she is there for merchandising and for some evafags to ogle at. Let's just accept her for what she is.
You're fucking retarded. The only reason to care about the meta implications of something is if the show was good enough to actually earn credibility. You're basically saying that Yamakan and Fractale actually saved anime because he said it would, despite being total garbage.
It might happen, Asuka and Shinji are already half angel.
i want this
yeah, one of the few good Hikari artists and she's always getting the knot or dominated by Fuyutski.
>Toji is just Toji
>Kaworu is just Kaworu
>Rei is just Rei
Fuck off faggot. If Rebuilt were any good, Anno wouldn't need apologists.
>implying it's her eyepatch that is glowing
Nigga, fucking please.
bardiel in her eye
I don't understand, would it be her eye that's glowing? But her eyes turn green when she does the berserk thing and the eyepatch is glowing blue
I think they make drops for that.
She has a robotic eye implemented inside her eye socket....or her eye somehow mutated during the bardiel incident. Doesn't really seem plot relevant at this point, just looks pretty kickass.
Any news on 4.0?
That gif is so fucking hnnng inducing your excused.
Curse of Eyepatch
I fucked up. Take an Asuka.
That's a shitty Asuka.
NGE Asuka's better.
Why would they let her run around with an angel in her eye? Wouldn't NERV or Wille kill her to be safe?
Actually, I want to know more about how everyone defected from NERV in general. Did it just happen all at once? What made them decide to ditch? Please answer these questions 4.0
What are these called?
Alternatively, she can get together with Asuka. It won't happen, but I'm basically obliged to bet on impossible odds.
Where can I find that scene where Bardiel gets killed and that creepy song plays?
>Not accepting Shikinami as simply a part of Sohryu
You are looked down upon by the Asukafag society. That's not something to be proud of. Asuka isn't just a name, it is a cognitive term.
I get most of my asuka from google images and tumblr happens to be popular I guess. I'm not going to rename every image in my folder
Is his head that big or is his body that small?
There's an Asukafag society?
You better believe it baka
Holy shit, his head really does look huge.
Oh god please no not again
Probably nowhere. Just torrent the film.
/r/ing image of "shinji dont get in the robot, shinji dont get in the robot, shinji dont get in the robot, shinji get out of the robot, shinji you fucked it up."
Fellow Asukafag pls
A lot of other people are also saying Soryu >>> Shikinami.
Its more of a battalion.
Almost definitely. Probably even has some branches like Orthodox Asukafags and Reformation Asukafags.
/r/ing image of eva 3.3 shinji save the day and mari go to her planet
YES! Thank you. I could never find it for some reason.
That doesn't sound so much a society as it does a religion.
Aren't they basically the same thing?
You're finally starting to get it baka
Sign me up.
You'll see, anon.
It's all apart of Kaworu's master plan to make the lilin suffer. You think he forgave them for stealing his planet and killing his children? Fuck no, he's gonna kill all of those little fuckers, starting with that fucking smurf called Rei.
He is Jesus in the head. He's the nigger we need, but not the nigger we want.
You can have a religious society, and you can have a society without religions.
Yeah but we're talking about private/secret societies, which are almost always religious in design if not nature.
Don't think, just accept
How are Asukafags a secret sociey by any means?
They're screencaps from Nico Nico Douga.
Are you saying it ISN'T a religion
>It's all apart of Kaworu's master plan to make the lilin suffer. You think he forgave them for stealing his planet and killing his children? Fuck no, he's gonna kill all of those little fuckers,
Holy shit son.
Kaworu turning out to being evil all along?
I'd actually enjoy the fuck out of that.
I'm still disappointed at the lack of Big Bossuka.
If he's evil then what about everything with Shinji?
So that it'll hurt even more when he betrays him
He certainly looks evil. He technically classified as an antagonist in the original series.
>Dead set on starting Third Impact
>Plot and character development obstacle that the protagonist had to gruelingly overcome
Asuka > Kaworu > Misato > Rei > everyone else
Wouldn't it be funny if they played Leaning On the Everlasting Arms during this scene?
Kaworu is getting his revenge on Shinji.
Shinji killed the majority of his children, so Kaworu makes Shinji fall in love with him only to kill himself an hour later. He then makes a new timeloop and starts the torture all over again. Never fuck with Adam or his children.
He's the best villain in all of Anime.
>all the dialogue in left channel
>all the sfx and music in right
NO FATHER, STOP THIS MADNESS
and anno, why did you have to ruin a perfectly good scene with cliché juxtaposition? Other than this scene and Mari 2.22 was alright.
This thing runs deeper than you think.
I wish I didn't know where this was leading
Nothing but a facade.
He's just taking every risk he can to break Shinji. After all, the evas, specifically Eva 01, is pretty much classified as the savior the world needs. But without its pilot, what use is it? It can't get in his way if Shinji's has been completely crushed.
I really want to watch this, but I want to wait and share all the emotions with everyone when it eventually comes on TV.
Seriously, just go ahead and watch it. And what were you thinking of watching it with dubs?
Well it's knot like you can stop it.
Asuka > Shinji > Misato > Rei > Kaworu
no one must know our secrets anon
I-I don't mind the dub.
He is one handsome as fuck villain. Too bad 3.0 kinda took away that role. Oh well, I liked his new haircut and watching him have a cerebral aneurysm was actually pretty interesting. Never thought we'd see a side to him like that, going all DESPAIR mode. Reminded me of those classic stereotypical villain reactions.
>"NO, MY MASTER PLAN HAS BEEN FOILED!!!"
Shinji > Misato > Kaworu > Asuka > Rei 1 > Everyone else
This thing goes straight to the top!
It was just shown in theaters, you missed it.
What about teenage ritsuko?
Here's the song by itself :
It's wan't being shown in any of my theaters.
I watched both 1.11 and 2.22 on Toonami. The chat was glorious and I don't mind waiting.
He'll just pop out of another coffin in 4.0 and harass the lilin all over again.
Adam is truly the confused alien space savior we need, but not the one we deserve.
I-i don't understand
Her mom is dead and didn't love her.
He actually did have some good insight and I learned a couple of things myself.
Seeing Garret bitch about Eva though, that was funny.
Hey don't bully Ristuko nobody wants her as a waifu anyway
Not really, asians can't into beards.
Except for Maya.
I liked the Rei tits story and i'm super jelly of Garret's EoE cel
Oh shit. That actually makes a lot of sense.
I'd bully the shit out of teenage Ristuko.
>Kaworu doesn't wear the choker, but disposes of it
>He was tricking Shinji into pulling the spears for more worldwide destruction
>Rebuild really is a sequel, the loops were caused by him all along
>4.0 is him attempting to go through with his plan to end humanity so his kin can repopulate their lost home, though everyone doesn't know it until the middle/near the end of the movie
What could have been.
But was it really?
That's a shitty beard though, couldn't be more thin.
A-anon that's so cruel, she's arguably the most messed up person in the whole story, at least let her enjoy her teenage years!
Guys, I think something's wrong with Pen-Pen
Since Anno claims that the Japanese love Rei i'd like to think that 2chan has Rei threads as often as we have Asuka threads
...I just noticed that.
What the fuck?
am I high or is penpen a dog
Why not both?
No, I'd come up to her at lunch and ask her why she always eats instant food and her mom never makes her anything. Then I'd talk about how much prettier the other girls are when she's standing right next to me and how she'd be lucky to get a husband and not end up with a bunch of cats. After school I'd tell her she can hang out with me if she gives me cigarettes then leave.
The fuck is that.
that's a penguin/husky hybrid begging the cameraman for a swift death.
What am I looking at?
Mari before her haircut
Anon it sounds like you and I would get along really well because I like being abused but don't bully people who don't deserve it
This ship is bad and it makes me feel bad.
Too bad it's canon
just let it happen
Better than Asu and Kawo
fight me nerd
Shouldn't you be off somewhere ignoring Hikari, Toji?
Re-take isn't canonyet.
You got a problem with gay romance?
Come at me bro.
Despite the film being pretty bad, /a/ agrees that the piano scene is awesome, right?
Should I read it?
The synopsis sounded like typical crazy stupid melodramatic fanfiction but I tend to cry and get depressed over dumb things like that anyway
It's certainly the most memorable scene, considering how heavily it's talked about.
That would've been kawaii as fuck if they weren't so damn skinny.
The piano scene did nothing but supply me with good laughs.
>typical crazy stupid melodramatic fanfiction
Describes re-take perfectly.
Read it anyway
Rei is about as OOC as can be, it plays deathflags for drama instead of the laughable cliches they are and is more or less wish fulfilment. Depends on how much you like AsukaxShinji.
>How am I supposed to eat this burger with my tiny hands?
I haven't read it, shit is like really long.
I like how its the closest the sequel theory has come to confirmation.
Where's that from?
Really have to rewatch it (all 3). But getting started with the first one always seems like such a hassle.
Some eva mobile game
>Shinji ending up taller than Asuka
Now this is just ridiculous.
It makes sense, girls do enter puberty earlier than guys.
i agree, her german genetics will make her taller.
Well, Gendo is pretty tall and Shinji isn't near old enough to be done growing
But... but Ramiel!
Kaji is the tallest person we see in the show and he's still serious manlet status.
Yeah I figured as much. It was giving me bad SAO vibes when they get married and suddenly deathflags everywhere
I like how the one trying to cosplay Shinji just looks like Anno instead
Its a meta type of cosplay.
is that tiffany grant as the MP eva?
I thought Gendo was like 6'0 and Kaji is 5'11. I imagine fully grown Shinji and Asuka would be about the same size since Shinji is male and japanese and Asuka is female and german
There are semi-official heights for everyone, but they're only slightly more consistent than the heights of the evas themselves
I was looking for a given height that someone else mentioned in a thread but I can't find it so I'm gonna go with saying that getting two nips over 5'9" together in the same place is about as likely as two sober Finns ice fishing.
I have no idea if this is official or not.
>mfw this is what 4.0 will be
>tfw anno will never make shinji x asuka ever canon
>tfw as much as I want it, it would ruin eva if he did
>tfw on second thought, maybe he will do it
>tfw my dream can never, ever come true
Eva 4: Mana 2: electric boogaloo
My heart can't take it
GoS sure wasn't anything to write home about but those pilot jumpsuits were kinda cool
>dat human Leliel
Goddamn. That genderbent Kaworu can go fuck itself.
Probably not, Anno would rather see Shinji die then have him paired up with any of the girls.
Don't remind me.. ;_:
>Shinji finally gets set free
Man he didn't even get a sword made for him
he wishes he could be free
RULES OF NATURE
>He makes it canon
>They get married
>Ends in divorce several years later
Be careful what you wish for from the master. Anno is the monkey paw of anime.
As expected of the master.
or the Dan Green method. She dies in childbirth and it breaks him having to see his daughter every day and eventually it repeats into a Gendo style relationship.
Six Evas, more than enough to kill anything that moves.
judging by the sheer amount of hatred anno has for haremshit (considering he made an entire anime franchise to parody it) either he'll try to "bring us back to reality" a la EoE or give us a satirical ending where shinji ends up with red or maybe blue and all the characters' struggles are resolved. But judging by anno's past forays into satire, unless it has the subtlety of a freight train made of elephants, the satirical ending would probably just be received as the ending all the hardcore EVA fans have always wanted while simultaneously getting endless criticism and bringing a new paradigm of comparisons between Anno and George Lucas
That's good, think I'll use it in 4.0.
I'M GOING TO DRAG NERV INTO THE 21ST CENTURY
And then the next day JJ Abrams announces Anno as Creative Director for the Star Wars movie
At least donate some money to Dan Green for being a good sport..
>What the fuck did I just watch?
DEEPNESS that's kept vague for the sake of prompting basement-dwelling NEETs to start reaching into their unwashed asses and fling whatever they pull out into the wall and calling whatever sticks canon and then calling it amazing and incredible to feed their horribly unjustified egos because that's the only thing that doesn't physically give off a stench.
it already happened
Anno's been playing up Rei in the rebuilds while reducing Asuka to almost an average tsundere action hero. We might actually see a blue win this tilol actually that's stupid, Asuka will win again
I think we'll all find this sufficiently horrible.
So basically no matter how Anno ends the Rebuilds the message would still go over the heads of the otaku and his fans would interpret it with the exact opposite meaning that he intended.
In other words EoE 2.0.
>No one understands me!
Pretty sure LCL is more than $5.
Get in the fucking robot Shinji.
You're pretty good.
haha, I don't care how shit it would be, I'd watch it
>"Is Rei safe? Is she alright?"
>"It seems in your anger, you killed her"
>"I couldn't have, she was alive, I felt it!
Oh god what did you do to Anno? He looks even more jewish.
>collective laughter when his more intimate scenes with Shinji came up
HOLY FUCK YES! My viewing had the same shit! One of the most enjoyable cinema experiences in my 21 year life span.
You know, I always wondered why there wasn't some kind of riot broken out after finding out LCL completely halts aging. Wouldn't people kill for immortality and go crazy trying to get some? Actually, why doesn't Wille allow people to become immortal if they want? Is there some kind of negative side effect? If not, then I see no real reason to keep such a thing from everybody but the original pilots.
>tfw your son is gay and won't pilot the robot
I assumed it wasn't just bathing in lcl, its going past terminal plug depth that does it
>Greatest Anime Series of All Time
Oh christ how could we forget the Meta end? Everything zooms out, we're back on the Stage that was used as Shinji's platform in the end of the series. All of Rebuild was an elaborate play, a fake, just a show to help Shinji deal with something yet again.
>Is there some kind of negative side effect?
Yes, you get an entire merchandising line based off of your character.
>ever deciding to show love for Shinji
>implying it isn't
>Don't be a faggot!
You mean it's Showtime?
Let me guess, Shinji Ikari Raising Project?
sometimes I forget how much Gendo looks like Anno. Isn't it interesting how the person who controls everything throughout the series looks like the director? And remember how Gendo loses control when Rei rebels against him? Could it be a metaphor for Anno losing control of the series to the characters?
A favor if I may ask
Can somebody post the image with shinji smoking weed and say "I have no idea what the hell is going on"
7/10 at best
Of all of images I don't have, I don't have that one the most. I have this for some reason though.
looking way too deep into it
Thanks for answering three questions in such a clear and concise answer, if only life's other questions could be answered so easily.
b-but eva is so deep!
>if only life's other questions could be answered so easily.
Life says that you are indeed a faggot.
>b-but eva is so deep!
Obviously it's 2deep4u.
Same as above.
>To our fans, Thank you. To Daicon, Farewell. For everyone, Congratulations! Thank you for a wonderful 30+ years!
>Anno-san will be taking a break from work until further notice, and Gainax studios will be debuting under a brand new name in their next work! Look forward to it!
For old time's sake, Anno should hand animate the last 5 minutes of the movie. Make it spectacular.
Khara couldn't even be assed to make the CG look good, I don't think Anno has any remaining sentimental attachment to EVA at all.
I'm not really sure what you're trying to accomplish by doing this, as I imagine we would probably agree with each other
I love that artist
Which is a shame in the end of things. Kind of a disappointing way to end it/milk it. Anno's done some damn good work the old fashioned way. I downloaded cream lemon just to see what his style was like in one of the episodes.
Sup nigga, you catch the Lakers game today?! Nick Young went HAM on the raptors! Thank God he was only suspended or one game, I love me some Swaggy P. I really hope he's on the lakers roster next season. Nick Young would be great coming off the bench.
i'm glad that we have to come to an agreement concerning your faggotry.
The world is a happier and better place now.
He probably acknowledges it as his most influential work but being the person who made it he tends to downplay it's strengths because he was intimately involved with making it. The series as whole was a huge success and brought him good fortune, and he most likely respects it for what is, but he's been ready to move on for a while now and continues supporting the series nowadays mainly because of the revenue and secondly because of his love for his project.
well I do like a good dick in my ass
he probably just wants to go home and fuck his hot 3dpd waifu
You forgot to post the second part.
you forgot the third part
What is that picture?
It's the Rei tank where she floats occasionally.
There's a bigass magic circle I believe is the circle of Art from the Goetia mixed with an oscillosocope readout of an atom's positioning done underneath it.
Why was there no clapping in EoE?
That was my favorite part of the series, but they didn't clarify about the clapping.
Well, Mari does look a lot like Kaworu and did a lot of similar things to him in 2.0
>let's ignore that she is one of the exposition characters and a third of her screen time is she saying some cryptic stuff
The girl act just like Kaworu, there is obviously some twist about her.
So I assume you two admit defeat then? If all you can do is attack my character and not my arguments, I guess so.
Go to bed Anno.
But I did, and now I'm back.
The pinnacle of Japanese animation as we know it.
According to rumor in japan, Anno didn't want to make new eva movies and kept saying nobody wants to make sequel. But he changed his mind because he thought he had needed to save his proteges (colleagues) from narrow circumstances like Miyazaki (his ex-tutor) did before to make ghibli.
But now, Ghibli offers Anno as a direcotr who succeed Miyazaki's position. He is now confusing he should make the last 4.0 movie he doesn't want or join Ghibli and make Nausicaa 2nd he has kept asking Miyazaki "let me remake it."
Sorry for my bad english
I don't believe it.
Explain why he hates Rei Japan-san.
>Just wait until 4.0 before you all call Rebuild shit.
We don't have to wait. It's shit now.
The first and second did their thing really well, and contributed well to each part of the show, but the third doesn't and with one movie to go, nothing can fix that.
Evas vs Godzilla
So, I just watched episode 24, I should watch EoE now, and THEN 25-26?
Is there a timeskip between 24 and 25 which EoE fills?
>between 24 and 25 which EoE fills?
25 and 26 is all inside people's head. You have usually no clue what is going on outside. For that you have EoE.
There is also a combined version of 25-26 and EoE.
"The Concurrency of the End of Evangelion v2.0"
but that combination is a fan creation
Still I think it might help
I like this thread.
Always just watch release order. Release order being correct applies to basically all anime, exceptions being ignorably low.
1-24 --> 25-26 --> EoE --> Rebuilds
Personally, I would advice not watching the Rebuilds, though. Right now, they really just seem to be cash-ins and I regret watching them, especially 3.33.
But that's no excuse to make it shit.
The same way a subversion of something bad will not always be good, there's no reason why the subversion of something good has to be bad.
If 3.0 had been good by it's own merits (you know, like 2.0) it wouldn't get as much shit for "subverting" our expectations because we got a good movie out of it. But 3.0 doesn't manage that, and there's no excuse for it.
Mari is a Spy from IPEA.
How can she turn off the EVA 13 when she was falling down ?
EVA 13 is supposed to be a new generation of EVAS, right ?
3.0 is objectively the best Rebuild movie because it arouses the most emotion out of viewers,
Yeah that is know for a while, yet a lot of anons like to ignore that.
Not that the info helps to understand her, we don't know a thing about IPEA, their power levels or even any kind of information about how important Mari is to it.
It is truly annoying, the way they handle the whole mystery surrounding Mari is terrible, even if the reveal is interesting the whole bad build up has already spoiled it.
I think that one is 2.0
I haven't watched any of the shows on the bottom row.
