What does /a/ think about Neon Genesis? Is it too overrated?
>>
>>100677993
I think it's fucking great.
Also, /a/ is not a hivemind.
>>
Several aspects of the series is overrated while some others aspects are underrated.

It's still well worth a watch.
>>
Well it would be impossible for something to actually be as good as its rated, but it's certainly a must-watch.
>>
Pretty good.
>>
Why the fuck was Rebuild 3.0 so bad? Like
GODDAMN

The anime is considered a classic (maybe even a master piece), Rebuild 1.0 was solid, Rebuild 2.0 was good, then on the third one they said "yeah so... fuck everything from the last two movies! Let's just animate some NGE fanfiction and have the characters speak very little to not at all, give them personality swaps and oh, Shinji does shit even though he knows and almost questions NOTHING"

It was so bad. I can't get over it.
>>
>>100677993
If you would lurk for more than thirty minutes you'd find out. There's almost always some Eva thread up.
>>
it's not overrated but it suffers from hypster syndrome aka if you don't like it you are classified as stupid & pleb
>>
>>100677993
It's great,but the original series is a tad overrated.
And EoE is underrated.

I think the original series and the manga are great.
Rebuilds are only okay.

It's overrated just like most media that exceeds the standard but at the same times it's so ingrained in the culture that you really have to watch it. I'm hesitant to use the word "classic" but it would make for an apt analogy.
>>
>>100677993
Watching it for the first time recently, I'm really impressed by both the fact that so far it's mostly been meeting the hype, and how there were many things I was never spoiled about picking up bits and pieces of the show during my time being on 4chan.

>And EoE is underrated.

I beg to differ
>>
>>100678542
>Rebuild 2.0 was good
>like a 30 minute subplot of rei and asuka making shinji lunch

It's a badly done Death & Rebirth movie, so yeah it's shit.

But if you compare Shinji's actions ,seriously or not, with the old series you will notice at times the "proactivity" he has now instead of being the whiny little faggot that he was in the old series.

Resuming and using shitty greentext examples :

>K:Shinji lets take out the spears to save the world
>K:oh wait ... don't
>J:"Fuck you I don't need you I will do it alone"

He mans up more than in the series that's a fucking given , and It backfires everytime for shit and giggles

Shinji fucks up no matter what he does due to horrible luck and being surrounded by douchebags.
>>
>>100678947
Shinji gets pretty cool for a little bit in the original series after he gets over how fucked up his situation is and before it gets even more fucked.

He does a decent job standing up to asuka in particular
>>
>>100678932
I don't get why people shit on this when the japanese was just as forced
>>
>>100679909
I think it sounds alright.
Still, I couldn't watch a whole episode like that.

OHSA would like to remind you strangling is not an accepted workplace dispute resolution technique.

What was the big fan service scenes in 3.0?
>>
>>100679963
but, again, they're all hamming it up because that scene is a parody of high school anime where everyone overacts all the time and sounds retarded, just like how it was inn the japanese

the actual dub doesn't sound like that all the time

>>100680030
EoE doesn't count because by that point shit was even more fucked then it was before, I'm talking about the middle of the series
>>
>>100680148
Asuka winning the waifu war.
>>
It's underrated.
>>
>>100680322
>waifu war

Not even once.
>>
>>100678786
It was a great Eva SoL spinoff.
>>
I vaguely remember watching the original series, what's worth watching after that and is there a way to refresh myself on the clusterfuck without punishing myself by watching it again?
>>
>>100680509
End of Evangelion.
Watch Death for a summary of the original series.

D&R is just a recap with some new crap sprinkled in. It's purely optional.

They're pretty much the same thing.
Just grab the Bloat relase and download the "Movies" folder, that's all you need.
