It's time to let it out /a/. Let your feelings flow.
What is the number one thing you HATE about your favorite Anime?
Evangelion: It was fine the way it was. It should have been left at that after End of Evangelion.
There's no need for the Rebuilds.
There's no need for anything else.
There's no need to fix what isn't broken.
But eva does have something that desperately needs fixing.
The fact it will never get a second season.
I feel exactly the same. All the rebuilding just makes it seem like Anno is trying to milk it for all it's worth and it's almost ruined a series that I used to love.
I hate nothing about EVA, rebuilds are irrelevant.
The kyousogiga 2011/2012 anime are my favourite shorts of all time. The new series ruined that by dumbing down the story with too much exposition and a host of no budget poor animation long shots with low detail mouth flapping characters and poor drawings. It's a shame.
They shouldn't have even made EoE, the TV series ending was perfect.
this so much
all they had to do was either remake it with today's technology or just remaster it in BD form, the rebuilds are appalling
> There's no need for anything else.
Well, fuck you.
That it was probably the last great space opera. Other than that, how could I hate near perfection?
Seriously fuck you Japan, make more space operas
Not just my favorite, but this goes for all animes.
I fucking HATE the quiet shy girl who rarely contributes ANYTHING to the anime except being annoying.
Let's write a Space Opera together, Anon-kun :^)
1.01 was amazing, the visuals, the voice work in both Japanese and English were phenomenal. the visuals were stunning, you can tell they poured their heart and soul into recreating their masterpiece with better visuals and current technology to make it the way they wanted.
I liked 2.22 and 3.0, I'm not gonna lie but i just want to know why.
Why did they veer off? Why was it necessary to do this? What are they trying to fix?
Nothing was broken.
That partticular page is from goujinshi, not manga right?
Manga is a great bonus to anime though. It's great until Rei's second death.
You talk as if Rebuild was some sort of sequel or remake, it isn't, it is like saying that the manga shouldn't exist because the series was already good enough. If you are going to hate rebuild hate it for the mess it is, not because "muh original".
Wow, that's the first time I heard real hate of EoE. Grumbling yes, but "I wish this shit had never happened?" For me, EoE was a masterpiece, and it was the very first thing I saw of the series (to this day, I have only watched episodes 1 to 6 of the original series), so maybe my opinion is not exactly informed, but I loved EoE to death for what did did.
> That partticular page is from goujinshi, not manga right?
Yes. And I was talking about this particular doujinshi.
Did you watch Terra e?
He didn't say he hates EOE he sais he hates REBUILD.
>Have not watched Terra e but am interested
Is it good? Should I start with the recent TV series or the older stuff (forgot if it was movie, OVA or tv series)?`Does anything adapt more than the other?
Madoka didn't feel like a protagonist in her own series until like 5/6th into the show, which was really frustrating while it was airing.
NO, FUCK YOU
O-oh. Sorry, I got really passionate about EoE, since it was one of the first Anime I bought on DVD in its German version (the very first Anime I bought on DVD was Ranma 1/2 movie 1, US version)
The recent series is really very good on its own.
It was completely overlooked by nearly everyone during its run but all the people who watched it really enjoyed it. (It aired when TTGL was airing).
I've heard good things about the prior stuff but have not gotten to watch them yet.
That was sort of the point, though. It's called a decoy protagonist (Or if I remember correctly a deuteroagonist)
because fuck you.
He's right I was talking about the Rebuilds. I love EoE, It's my favorite movie ever. I watch it at least twice a month.
I had a girlfriend leave me after watching it with her she couldn't handle it.
Her loss I suppose.
Can you explain why are you so mad?
>There's no need to fix what isn't broken.
If anyone in the entire world could just understand this life would be better and nothing would ever get ruined.
But what if it improves the status quo?
Not even really talking about EoE or the remakes (though I love EoE), but in general it's good to try new things.
Hidden gem of the decade.
Can you not just treat the Rebuilds as a nice visional bonus or disregard them completely?
For something as big as NGE, you know that isn't going to happen.
my least favorite thing about eva is that sooooo much of it is "open for discussion". the only reason it's open for discussion is because that lazy homo has to be so full of shit with muh arts. there's a difference between leaving something open-ended and making up a whole bunch of shit with no explanation that forces the audience to basically make up shit until it makes even a semblance of sense. most of eva didn't suffer terribly from this, but jesus christ the last half hour of end of evangelion is one of the worst things i've ever seen. pure self wankery.
For a reason.
You asukafags are fucking disgusting, you can't enjoy porn with your shitty waifu without humiliating, murdering and shitting on Rei, do you? And you even have nerve to be posting it in every evathread claiming it to be better than eva itself.
Fucking piece of shit.
BUT WHAT DOES IT MEEEEAN
there isn't one. the creator relied on his audience to make one for him because he's just that stupid.
forgot to mention that i was talking about the meaning. whatever
>implying Eva with EoE is not easy as fuck to understand
People just over think it too much
nice try anno
Not easy as fuck, eva's deep but people really do dig deeper than it is.
A wild reifag appears!
There's an all-ages version and it's actually better than the original one. Not that there was much porn to begin with. 1 scene every, what, 100 pages? Pfff.
>claiming it to be better than eva itself.
Never did I claim that. It's still very good though.
Also, Rei's behavior in first volume is pretty much justified by the whole situation, relationship with Gendo and Shinji's attitude.
It isn't deep. Not being deep doesn't make it bad.
I fucking hated all the symbolism. Why can't Anno just have fun?
Nothing is being fixed idiot. The original series is still there, Rebuild is completely seperate, just seperate them in your mind.
The symbolism was his way of having fun.
>just seperate them in your mind.
Tell that to the fans
asuka wins in all timelines rei a subhuman shit, deal with it faggot.
It's Rei as seen by Asukafags. Fucking piece of shit literally worse Rei Q.
But of course you see wahat you want to see, you like seeing Rei like that, you want to believe she's that and even project that onto Rei's actual character because you hate her/
This isn't going to sound like I'm answering to the thread topic, but this is really all I could come up with.
I want to say that Madoka didn't have enough content, but that's only because it was twelve episodes long. It needed to be longer. There could have been more elaboration to the story. Everything I want to say after that will have been a point branched off from that first one. I want to say I wish there was more character development, more elaboration on the story, more events and so on but this all pertains to the first point.
One more independant point could be that I wish Mami had a more unique and developed personality, even if she only lasted a few episodes. I wish they went more in depth with Sakura's character and I wanted Madoka to be a bit less bland. Even as a decoy protagonist, she seemed too much like a doll who just drones through the series.
Are you kidding? You're kidding.
In terms of inference, this was a huge fuck you from Anno...
Well, it's at least not on-the-surface. One has to think a bit to understand and accept the main theme.
What really is interesting, is the world mechanics, putting them together as s puzzle from small plot details.
>muh deep animes
i don't think i've ever seen a picture that summarizes anno better than that.
>actually defending Retake
Get the fuck out and take your shit taste with you.
But what if you lose what originally gave something it's charm?
I would think the right thing to do for any story you create yourself that's truly precious should have a clear ending that brings everything to a close.
Continued...this scene was moreso made to "bring the audience back to reality" to show them how fucked up people are and that reality is fucked up. Not that moeshit like sitting on the bed, wiping down there forehead whenever they see sweatbeads on it or seeing someone naked and staring at them, dumbfounded, until you scream "Aaahhh warui warui"
Kagura is obnoxious.
Seems like nobody has ever watched this
>Anno Dominum year of the Second Impact minus 1
>having EVA as you're favorite anime
Like that? Like what? Can you elaborate, where exactly are "we" mistaken? She already broke her emotional bond with Gendo and just after she started to develop a proper one with Shinji, he destroyed it. She has had no real experience in human relationship, didn't understand what was going on, she wasn't much above the doll-level. Choosing not to live at all in a situation where nobody needs you, not even yourself and nobody will ever come for you, should look logical from her standpoint.
That's cool that it isn't the moeshit and all but the whole experience of watching evengelion was just confusing and uncomfortable. I don't get the appeal at all.
I did. Didn't like it though.
Oh, I'll add that she was also shown in a very good light later on.
I guess you should consider yourself lucky then, 'cause I do. I went through a horrible three year depression and because of that, was able to relate completely to the whole series. It's definitely not my favorite, and it sucks to feel like you're going through something you overcame, but it was nice to watch and relate, so I did love it though it brings back a lot of fucked up shit. It shows you the fucked up problems people have, it shows you the thoughts, views and problems that goes with depressed people. It's just a clusterfuck of harsh reality
>killing self while being aware of own immortality
I was about to post something about characters and other stuff, but fuck you seriously.
You reduced the show that didn't have any romantical line to harem level.
Only a retard who fucking hated the show and didn't care about anything at all except for one single character could really enjoy retake.
ok calm down shinji, you dont have to get in the robot today ok?
kareshi kanojo, he had so much fun the author complained it was not giving enough space to the Romance and the series ended.
It truly is a shame. In such an age as now when we have so many talented animators and talentless directors, Anno needs to move onto something new.
He's tried. Oh dear god he's tried with all his might, but his fans are all dragging him down.
I know this refrence sucks, but Anno is to Evangelion as Daniel Radclife is to Harry Potter, no matter what they do with their lives, they'll be known for that one singular thing.
Girlfriend vs anime movie?
you made the right choice anon.
>I know this refrence sucks, but Anno is to Evangelion as Daniel Radclife is to Harry Potter
you could have just said Shinichiro Watanabe=Cowboy Bebop
What. That wouldn't be "her" anymore, that would be another Rei with no memories and no pain.
>show that didn't have any romantical line
Ehhh. Eeehhhhh. What?
Where's harem in Re-take?
>Only a retard who fucking hated the show and didn't care about anything at all except for one single character could really enjoy retake.
Well, you know, it's just, like, your opinion, anon.
She was a cunt the only reason we were really dating was because we were in the same flat, had three classes together, and she was hot but had a personality of sand paper.
It's so frustrating the bronze saints are treated like shit on Next Dimension. They should be raping gods at this point instead of being treated as jobbers. I actually like ND but I cringe everytime Shun and the rest are throw away
Not enough jabs at why Austrians are shit.
