What is, hands down, the greatest scene in all anime?
The most moving.
Greatest? Not even close
The one that you choose. And it's different for every person.
The sandbox scene in End of Eva is probably the greatest scene in anime. It's one of my favorite scenes in all of cinema.
all of it
Eva is shit.
I also agree with this.
Patlabor 1's opening scene
This is the most iconic, I think.
Just by looking at it, you are filled with a sense of curiosity, wonder, awe, confusion, and interest.
Your mom sucking my dick last night :)
That .gif just makes me think of Spec Ops: The Line
yeah its probably up there with the first scene of akira
>Giant fairy molding clay
Don't know about best, but this whole bit was my favorite.
And boredom...actually, just bordem
Horror and confusion describe how I felt when I first saw that scene.
maybe this one
ting ding tind
mostly just confusion
It actually felt like a horror scene.
Not the best but worth mentioning.
>implying that was the best
>You will never find the full, completed manga to Ashita no Joe
I'd like to read it at least once.
If we're talking iconic, I vote for any variation of this scene.
jumping on to white base
Maybe not the best, but it's up there
i guess i should watch EoE eh?
i just felt like the series ending wrapped it up so well, dont wanna fuck it up
Spoiler that shit anon this is a worksafe board
I'd say just the one from the movie.
Nothing could ever beat that.
Any scene in Bakemonogatari Episode 12
There's a reason it's the #1 best selling anime from 2000-present
>"The power of imagination is the ability to create your own future and control your own flow of time.."
Fuck.... Hold me /a/.
this one could be!
Watch the last two normal episodes of the series for the characters.
Watch End of Evangelion for the story, as well as the characters. If you liked the series for how it wrapped up the characters, then watch the movie as well, because it gives you a bit more to work with and examine, but ultimately brings you to the same result.
>Fucking anything up
EoE defines the entire fucking franchise. Watch it.
What is this from?
My personal vote goes to this one, but "anime" as a whole is so incredibly vague that it's hard to even compare. Maybe it you want something more representative of anime as a whole you could go Daicon IV or something.
Also any colony drop.
This cannot end well.
It's in there somewhere
You can actually tell where they ran out of money
Look at the clouds
Goku vs Vegeta
where is that one with the white headphones on the flower from?
seriously have you ever been more satisfied?
The entirety of Paradox Spiral is the greatest scene in anime.
Once or twice, but yeah, enjoyed that immensely.
>The most moving
10/10 I laughed
the only chinese cartoon to make me cry
Probably Arale poking poop, or Naruto doing his shit.
The greatest "Wait, did they actually just do that?" scene.
The rooftop fight was marginally better. There, I said it.
Hit me like a tra-
I am so sorry.
My fucking nigger. That scene is just incredible on so many levels.
Beep beep niggers
Pull over, feels coming through
I'm counting all the way to L'alc seeing the red lights for this scene.
No contender to anything from EoE, but stand the fuck back, regardless..
>"What do you mean "turn around"? DON'T YOU REMEMBER WHAT WE CAME HERE TO DO?!
>That fucking music
The end of TTGL episode 11.
So much good taste in this thread... I would also nominate the first Space Battleship Yamato liftoff, the motorcycle sequence in Akira, and pic related.
What are details?
I don't have a "hands down" favorite, I've seen a shitload of animu. That said, I still love the breakdown of TTGL's finale, especially the film version.
Don't even try to fight me.
the last fight was just too good
easily one of the best shounen rival finale fights I've ever seen in my entire life
the tension in this scene man so good
Roy killing Envy was pretty good.
The scene where you're waifu loses
Madoka Episode 10
Sorry for bad quality picture.
My vote for most poignant scene.
Picking one is way too easy and narrows down the selections way too much.
Ask people to give their top 5, and then we have a thread.
Jin Roh's opening sequence is definitely up there.
Despite what you think of DBZ, I don't see how you can deny this wasn't a standout anime moment.
Shonen hasn't touched this scene since as far as power ups go.
This scene has my vote.
It's got the mix of being well known, emotionally impacting, and visually memorable.
The scene where Ashitaka walks out of the village carrying San.
As a fan of both the TV ending and EoE, watch it. It adds immense value to the franchise.
That scene along with Asuka's death culminating in the "Grasping the Sun" shot are probably some of my favourite bits of film in general.
Mokoto gets sniped
Makoto x Saito sniper battle
Tachikoma self sacrifice
There were a lot of great moments in SAC.
Kyon's monologue in the movie.
>The most moving.
Glad I saw this post before sleeping
Feels nice to laugh right before bedtime
I just rewatched Disappearance earlier tonight, I had forgotten just how good it actually was.
That scene in particular was a powerhouse.
What's wrong with th... oh...
>Shonen hasn't touched this scene since as far as power ups go.
Saint Seiya Divine Cloths
>Vote for Obama
Not the best, but man I fucking LOVE this scene
Claymore; Teresa getting killed.
Third for this one.
>Jin Roh's opening sequence is definitely up there.
The fight in the sewer is great.
Asuka's death in EoE really disturbed me the first time I saw it, I'm re-watching the series with my brother now and I'm not looking forward to re-watching that. It doesn't help that I have that shitty winter depression thing.
The best part was how it ended with a Bang.
Seconded, that scene was magnificently done.
This thread was fun.
See you guys tomorrow.
How about this?
No contest, for me at least.
The train ride scene in Spirited Away.
It does everything right. The music, the animation, the subliminal message, pure perfection.
Tryhard newfags, all of you.
Not even close. If anything Bleach is the king of doing non-climantic power jumps during fights.
Once of the few animated sequences from a movie that actually makes me feel tense, even after I've seen it. Everyone talks about the animation being great but the sound work was also superb.
The ending of Redline. I was actually cheering for the whole scene.
Dude even Demon Yusuke's transformation/fight was more memorable than that scene.
Honestly speaking the most memorable scene in DBZ for me has to be the first SS3 power-up. Everything else was just easily forgotten.
>boobs in the background
the diamond is a vagina
Every time it gives me chills.
It took him 5 fucking minutes in the anime. I enjoyed every minute of it
The whole movie has simply brilliant atmosphere and ambiance.
Van vs the Dragonslayers in Escaflowne
I guess you didn't watch YYH.
Yuusuke's power up versus 100% Toguro was definitely better.
Gon's power up against Pitou might even top it when it airs but now I look like a Togashi fanboy.
Is there really any cooler way to kill a guy than impaling him on your giant robot?
Watermelon Crash was the greatest scene in that show besides Katz randomly crashing in to that asteroid.
That's the most obvious part, yes, and unfortunately the only part of the scene /a/ seems to be able to pick up on.
That 5 minute scene manages to convey a bigger message than most films manage to do in their entire runtime. It's just layers upon layers of symbolism all intertwining and playing off of each other. I honestly have no idea how they pulled something like that off, but it still blows my mind every time I watch it.
The ending, really?
My vote for best scene if it had to come from that movie would definitely be the Yellowline race.
But I guess that's too long for a 'scene'.
YYH was never very good.
The trailer was better then the movie. Don't get me wrong, I love the movie to death, but that trailer was the best thing that anime has put out in the last 15 years.
That was a good one. Also I know it's not the best but Nicol's death in SEED was probable the one part of that show that stuck with me in the end.
EoE confirmed for the greatest thing of all time, I guess.
I'm more surprised that they were able to convey messages and symbolism without coming off as pretentious dickwads, granted it can still be seen as pretentious, just not as bad as most modern shit that wants to act deep.
Man, I never did watch the RK movies even though I've watched most of the TV anime.
It just keeps getting pushed further and further back into the backlog by newer stuff.
The last chocking scene with Shinji crying and Asuka saying kimochi warui was the most iconic eva scene for me.
Yeah, I'll admit that it really fell apart and went to shit at the end.
But you're either a troll or have REALLY bad taste to not admit that YYH had a lot of great parts in it.
I'm not even too big on Haruhi, but this scene is phenomenal.
That scene never looks quite right to me. Either the proportions are off or Asuka is doing some kind of Yoga pose while yelling at him.
Trust and Betrayal is in my opinion one of the greatest Animated OVAs of all time. Do yourself a favor and watch it ASAP anon.
The entire OVA is really iconic and filled to the brim with great scenes.
Shinji: Nobody understands me.
Rei: You never understood anything.
Shinji: I thought this was supposed to be a world without pain, and without uncertainty.
Rei: That's because you thought that everyone else felt the same as you do.
Shinji: You betrayed me! You betrayed my feelings!
Rei: You misunderstood from the very beginning. You just believed what you wanted to believe.
Shinji: Nobody wants me, so they can all just die.
Rei: Then what is your hand for?
Shinji: Nobody cares whether or not I exist. Nothing ever changes, so they can all just die.
Rei: Then tell me, what is your heart for?
Shinji: It would be better if I never existed. I should just die, too.
Rei: Then why are you here?
Although it's not my favorite of all time, I can easily say it's in my top 10.
The very opening of episode 1 of Wolf's Rain.
That piano and monologue are so good especially after you watch the full show and truly find out what he means by it.
Forgot but this is a close second
I always forget about that show.
Great scene tho. I like how it explains what's going to happen in the entire series in the first 30 seconds of you watching the show.
cool yes but not as cool as returning home in gunbuster and honestly no where near the coolest scene in anime
and roy doing that was kinda a plot hole, the way his alchemy works he would have ran out of O2 to fuel those fires.... and would have suffocated
The original gundam was so good. Especially considering it was made on a shoe string budget and they had to wrap that shit up in 42 episodes because it got cancelled. Its still up there in my favorite mecha series even after all these years.
Mami death in Madoka
Third Impact is probably the defining moment of anime in the 90s, possibly of all years as well.
Though I do have to say, the ending scene from the first Patlabor movie has a special place in my heart, though I'm not quite sure why. That whole movie and franchise in general I think doesn't get enough attention.
shit anime. this is the scene that needs to happen and never will
Texhnolyze episode 2 final scene comes to mind for whatever reason.
what is this?
The declaration of Martial Law in Patlabor 2. Movie was fucking prophetic.
It ALMOST happened though.
and yet it didnt happen, and it never will.
it should be how the show ends. she just gets the shit beat out of her for 23 minutes and the shows ends with her wimpering on the floor in a pool of her own vomit
>3 mentions of Patlabor movies
Good taste.The first two movies are very great, so many powerful scenes.
Berserk rape scene, Diebuster final scene, Akira race scene, a lot of cool ones from Memories like that famous one that was turned into a phantom of the opera amv. Outlaw Star final scene. Tenchi using the wings in Muyo! OVA.
I miss my childhood, /a/, why you do this to me.
They're literally attached to one another, physically. It's a hallucination during Instrumentality, it's supposed to look off/uncanny.
>Implying the final battle of TTGL isn't the single greatest moment in anime
What a fantastic fucking sequence
The scene at the end of "Cannon Fodder" where the child goes to bed and the giant surveillance light is pulsing outside, and it cuts to the credits and you realize that's it. And at first you're confused, but then after a second you "get it" and you get chills down your spine.
The whole movie, but from here on really gets me every time.
>search AB for patlabor
>7 different things show up
Alright guys, how am I supposed to do this.
I know the Rei scenes are like that, but people seem to be under the impression that it could be either a flashback or imagined. I always assumed it was the later because it does look like they're melting together.
These last two episodes and how they use the medium and the imagery, just unforgettable for me.
Best Romance: Senjougahara's "This is all I can give you" speech at the end of Bakemonogatari 12
Best Shounen/GAR/Hot Blooded: The final battle against the Anti-Spiral in TTGL. Alternately, Simon's speech in Episode 11.
Best Death: Asuka's death in EoE
Should have gone with the final scene. Shit, that was depressing.
the first set of OVAs and the films are in a different continuity than the New Files ovas and the TV series
Don't watch the 3rd film
Nothing in TTGL is good or memorable unless you are ignorant.
pretty good considering they were flying by the seat of their pants because they ran out of money. It may have happened due to lack of funds, but it happening made Eva unforgettable.
So, basically just watch the first set of OVA's, then movie, ignore the rest.
The TV series are more light hearted, while the movies are more serious and of a different continuity.
Not only is an impromptu jam session just cool as is, but it serves as a turning point in the narrative and the way the characters develop from there.
No, it's all worth watching.
The TV series isn't bad at all, its fun & enjoyable, but those two films Oshii did are on a whole different level
I don't see it
Best murder scene.
i never saw that coming st time i watched it many many moons ago
I'll download the other stuff for good measure, but more than likely I'll grab the OVA's and the movies and stick to that, depending on how much it grabs my interest. Thanks for the help guys.
And I didn't grasp any of it.
I'm as dense as a sack of hammers when it comes to this kind of stuff. If it isn't explicitly pointed out to me by some third party, I won't notice it.
Shed a tear, thanks.
The entire opening sequence to Tsuiokuhen was fantastic:
> Shinta... a name too soft for a warrior. From this day forward, you are Kenshin!
This scene had me balling like a baby
Couldn't agree more.
Well the scene is being oversold to you. It's an ink blot, ambiguous enough that people can see a whole bunch of symbolism with most of it being unintended.
cheesy, yet satisfying
Here ya go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXJ73Wsi3UA
It's pure Lynchian surrealism. There isn't some coded secret message, but there's a rich collection of symbols from which you could interpret all kinds of meanings.
Or maybe I remember it wrong.
I can grasp just enough about that scene to know I'm definitely missing something.
This one shot in particular always sticks with me
Think I'll rewatch the movies tomorrow.
we're done here
So, the gist of the sequence is that troops are occupying the country and nobody minds?
Hirasawa's "Kingdom" really makes that scene shine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMmCGd5ywUU
>That episode 4 and girl with 2 personality
Kon is a God.
Nanoha StrikerS took 17 episodes to get good and doesn't hold a candle to A's, but the second half had some god-tier moments:
Quattro was one of those villains who deserved every amount of hate. It made this scene all the more gratifying:
If that scene before didn't make Nanoha Mom of the Year All Years, this did:
The pyramid is human achievement r-right
He still has work he needs to do...
Can't wait for Gundam The Origin to get animated, it's gonna be fun!
Aria the origination episode 9, PROMOTION
EoE had a really bad dub. I really hope Gainax/Kara release a BluRay version. Funimation sucks, but they're better than this shit.
I accidentally a word, stupid IME.
Hilarious how so much as that filename can get that song stuck in my head
But that's wrong
But you only need to look in the same anime
spoilered for being one of the few anime scenes to move me.
they toooootally fucked that night
Nope, it's this scene.
Close second, but no cigar.
fucking bones man, it gets me
I really love this scene, I think kai did it so much better then the Z.
Always get goosebumps
The last two eps of the show and EoE are the whole reason for watching the show in the first place, you are doing yourself a disservice by not watching EoE
>tfw you see priceless Evangelion cells go for auction on Mandarake
>For thousands of dollars
I want to buy them...
Basically yes. They don't mind because people have become complacent with the peace and quality of life they obtained through other people's misery as explained in this speech >>100949968. There's an imminent danger on their lives, yet they think it's all a joke and does not concern them.
That feeling when you realize the lyrics the from Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari had been telling you this was going to happen since Episode 1.
Say what you will about the series, the last half of that episode was one of the great romantic moments in anime.
The Kaiba scene's a good one
I'll agree with this one, although largely because TTGL popularized it later.
the music fits the scene so well, it's amazing
Best episode in the whole show, was also the exact moment I decided Light needed to die
>No mention of the Tachikomas suicide
Jesus christ /a/ get your shit together, that scene is amazing and sticks with me everywhere I go
People reposting the troll version of this collage without knowing it make me sick.
Onizuka running into a school during a demolition to rescue a girl, only to end up throwing a full-sized organ out with her while the building is falling down around his ears.
Dat music as he walks out of the dust cloud
Just watch Trust and Betrayal, it's the best part of the entire series
i know you felt it too
>Tryhard newfags, all of you.
This. This thread is so MAL it hurts.
>not Subaru going berserk
come on now
> Brotherhood version
What's wrong with you
Three minutes long, yet still one of the most moving things I have seen.
no mention of the final montahe in 5cm per second?
This whole thread just makes me sad that I don't watch more anime. Why can't people just post the videos of the scenes they're talking about?
thread's depressing enough - let's take it a little further
Brotherhood's scene when they reverse the nation-wide transmutation circle
I just fucking love it
I nearly shit myself the first time.
It's been mentioned. >>100947288
Wow really? There were some shitty parts but I thought that scene was very well pulled off.
My Onizuka moment would be when he takes the test and faints from blood loss at the very end.
Maybe one day I'll get around to finishing it, dropped it during the one Idol with all the commercials.
>Not the toothbrush scene in Nise.
First anime is shit m8 take off nostalgia googles
I see no one posted the pinnacle of chinese cartoons yet.
That fucking song alone is all it takes to make that scene beyond spectacular
Chills, every time, fuck it makes me want to rewatch it
Yeah, I'ma need a source on that
It's the music moving you, not the animation.
MY NAME IS SQUEALER
>implying Raohs death isn't more iconic
OF THIS LIFE I HAVE NOT A SINGLE REGRET
I love Dune bro.
a contender, to be sure
>Old fag answer
>Not Remi Nobody's Child related
dilandau going nuts while burning the place down
Sing along, you know the lyrics.
No matter how you feel about the first anime as a whole (and you're wrong) you would have to be literally retarded to argue that the Brotherhood version of the funeral scene/Hughes death episode is not inferior to the 2003 version. The soundtrack alone puts it in another league.
>Not Heidis friend falling down that cliff to rescue her
The finale of Utena is spectacular.
I think everyone can agree the zero requiem is up there atleast
Magnetic Rose, this scene.
And here I thought you were going to post
Forgot my pic.
That concert in Macross Plus
Ah that music, such lovely music
Gintama ruined Heidi for me.
I can't find a clip of it anywhere on Youtube, but the montage toward the end of The Sky Crawlers where the characters "walk the same road every day" is so dreamlike and bleak, it always gets to me.
The one in the OP. The whole ending sequence of EoE, hands down.
The most memorable instead, in a personal way, is Minmay's song in Macross: DYRL. Macross was the very first anime I ever watched and I loved it, and that scene from the movie is engraved in my memories
You mean Isamu vs Guld dogfight right?
I thought it was shit. Especially after how great the Black Rose finally was just a few episodes before.
It's also difficult for me to reconcile Ruka's and Utena's exits.
Well that too but only in the Movie, the series was üretty meh in that regard.
I honestly have to agree with this. It's at least the most well written anime scene I've had the pleasure of viewing.
holy shit I had forgotten how ugly Lynn Minmay was until now
>He hasn't seen EoE
These people exist.
and they're on /a/ of all places
I guess I ought to get to Patlabor and finish Macross.
I remember Joe. I remember you forever.
Someone is gonna have to fuel the "What the fuck did I just watch?" threads for the following years.
yeah you probably should
Oh my god, dude, keep thinking, too.
>"Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy. As long as the Sun, the Earth and the Moon exist, everything will be alright."
I felt like I'd seen God's face after hearing that.
I don't think there's any anime-fan that doesn't remember the choco-cone discussion.
Easily the most iconic one among SoL anime.
Goddam I shat a brick wall when this happened
Of course, it was the scene after which I dropped LS.
Why is this not unanimous?
Every single faggot in the world knows this scene.
This shit went off it's rocker so badly in the last few chapters that I dropped it with like 5 to go. Ridiculous.
And that isn't anime.
Yeah same here. It is a shame.
>And that isn't anime.
The scene where Asuka realizes the meaning of an AT field and unit 02 awakens.
It's a good scene and deserves to be mentioned. See >>100941991 .
Was it not fucking obvious though?
can't even handle all this shit taste
What the- Jesus fucking christ
See this is the kind of shit that turns me into a faggot vegetarian.
Just use google search, dude. It's super easy to find it that way.
It wasn't but it was something you didn't want to happen.
and the scene before it, from the film. Two gut wrenching scenes, and it only got worse.
That scene where Shinji was all "You were here the whole time?" was pretty nice.
this brings so many nostalgia tears to my eyes, makes me feel like I'm getting muh culture back like the zentradi
Fuck damn, i'm still mad.
Keions crying made me want to kil myself so i guess that was a good scene too
Not sure why, but the scene in NGE where Shinji shoots at Ramiel and Ramiel shoots back and the beams distort around each other was always super fucking cool to me, it's actually my favourite shot in the whole show
Did we ever figure out what the fuck the angels were?
the fuck, did you even watch the anime?
I am so fucking sad I can't find this subbed in English...
This scene still blows my fucking mind to this day.
It's so goddamn cheesy, but it's animated so well and entirely moving. It's the culmination of hot bloodedness and the epitome of the power of love. It's just a great good guy beats bad guy and gets the girl that was by his side the whole time.
watched every thing like 4 goddam times. I've spent my lifes savings on NGE merch to fund the movies
I preferred 1.11 Ramiel more than the original shows version, shame they didn't show that scene though.
I don't care how many times you've seen it, this scene is perfect. The music, the dialogue, the animation, the tension. Everything.
Has anyone posted this scene yet? Because it's definitely up there.
Good lord you're a fucking faggot
I gotta admit, the dub grew on me, it really did. It actually started with Shinji's scream during the angel fight in episode 2, it actually startled me when I first heard it, a true caterwaul. Gradually I got used to the rest of the characters as well and grew to like them. Doesn't mean it's a good dub necessarily, but it grew on me
Glad I found it here. Felt fucking amazing there
fuck yeah, I love that shot. It was a really elegant way to show how fucking powerful those beams were + was way more interesting than the 'its dead, no wait it's not dead!' shot that replaced it in 1.11
Oh man that was quite the scene the first time
Astonished that no one has posted this yet.
Most memorable scene. Dropped the show like a steaming pile on the last episode but still
If this piece of garbage fanservice show had ended right here, I'd have called it the best thing ever fucking made.
Same, I have a really strong attachment to the English voices in Eva. Even if they weren't always "good" necessarily, I really liked/like them. Shinji, Misato and Rei's voices are pitch-perfect, for one thing.
that faggot with a sweatshirt and a sword, holy shit I hate Saito so much
The TV series dub was fine. It added a couple things that didn't make sense, but over all it was decent. It was handled by ADV though, where-as D&R/EoE was done by Manga Entertainment. They used a few of the same voice actors, but not all of them. They also very liberally added in lines where they saw fit, which kind of irks me. If you listen to the commentary (which you shouldn't, for neither the series nor the movie) it seems like they just had it out for ADV.
Oops, uh, that would be this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-dLbtzB5rU
Actually everything to do with Ramiel was sweet. The scene where they show all of Japan losing power to power the gun with dat music, the sene with shinji and rei sitting on the launch platforms...
But anon, the movie dubs were directed/scripted by one of the two people who directed the TV series dub.
But yeah, basically every voice actor from the TV series who came back for the EoE dub completely outdid themselves, while every replacement voice actor who was brought on specifically for D&R/EoE was fucking shit (except for the new voice for Maya, she was actually an improvement).
Wasn't Gendo the only VA that got replaced or has it been too long since I watched it?
And what a scene it was.
I still think it was super good until the music. It didn't fit a tragic scene at all.
i quite liked how R1 ended. lelouch and suzaku's fury was nasty.
I dunno about 'best' but this pretty goddamn iconic.
Matt Greenfield was the ADR/Script writer for NGE, Amanda Winn-Lee did the movies.
Correct. They could not get Tristan MacAvery to reprise the role.
Another great scene: intimate haircuts
Do you really think we're the same person?
Don't you really think it's a sin how shit your taste is?
Rei's Smile at the end
I've seen Gurren Lagann posted a couple times, but nobody's mentioned my favorite scene.
This entire God damned episode. By the time Kaname loses it (a little after the 20 minute mark), I knew this was a great damn episode. Loved the scenes from the LN and was VERY pleased with how Kyoto Animation handled this.
Third season never...
Whoops, forgot link:
Gendo was replaced for the Director's Cut episodes/Rebuild because Tristan MacAvery hates Matt Greenfield's guts and Funimation... was just too lazy to hire him.
He actually came back for the original movies and did a really great job. Especially in the scene where he's betrayed by Rei.
i would love to see a very merry christmas animated
Matt Greenfield was the chief ADR director/writer, but AWL co-directed and wrote some episodes.
*cough* not *cough hand-drawn
It probably helps that the voice actors all got progressively better as the show went on, since the dub recordings started back when Eva was still brand-spanking new (the same year it finished airing in Japan!) and was released gradually over the next two years, plus another three years after that for the movies. Which gave them a whole lot of time to really get to know their characters and get comfortable in their roles.
Besides Gendo, Kaworu, Hyuga, Maya, Fuyutsuki, and Keel all got different voice actors as well.
It did seem like they really started to sink into their roles as time passed
Did she die? Isn't she alive at the end, where she caresses Shinji's face?
Or did she die, but Shinji was God and just decided that "I don' care about anyone but Asuka, make her come alive again!!" ?
Watch the movie again
Theory: EoE is not really a movie but a compilation of greatest scenes ever. Not that I'm dismissing the other shows getting posted.
>>100950190 God I love that.
I don't know if anyone's mentioned it yet but
The suicide episode from Welcome to the NHK
Remember when he followed his old friend/classmate and was totally on board with it all, coming to terms with his isolating depression and finding camaraderie with other like-minded broken people. They all made the commitment and at the last moment she's saved by her boyfriend/fiance or whatever, and ti's like an emotional sucker-punch to him. Top it off with Misaki going off and then you have the both of them break down and spill their guts and really just, fall apart. Jesus. Just the scene of him bawling his eyes out at the cliff, the desperation in all that really got to me.
Ya. Feels like crazy.
That scene was really good but I remember feeling frustrated because I couldn't buy that a bunch of people who had made a serious pre-planned commitment to kill themselves could be dissuaded so easily.
It's been popular for 40 years straight.
I know what you mean. I think it's just when you're surrounded by people it becomes that much harder to really end yourself, you know? They all sort of talked one another out of it, but still apparently these suicide pacts are a real thing so you can imagine some people really do go through with them.
Like the episode of Paranoia Agent.
You watch the whole episode and you think "oh they're hesitant now that they see a little girl in the mix" and you watched all their shenanigans, and the episode ends and you feel relief that they didn't die. But no, they did, they totally did.
That entire show is magical, really.
Anyway here's the NHK clip for anyone interested, I think it's the scream at the end that really does it for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMCJVvYj00Y
the soundtrack for that scene still gives me tingles
>God I love that.
Have a better gif then.
Now I remember, what bugged me about it is that in under 10 minutes they go from ready to die to restraining Sato from killing himself and saying he has so much to live for and shit. I just couldn't buy that. Feels like a cop-out from how bleak the series would've gotten otherwise. I feel like at least one of the people should've gone through with it.
They're sometimes stopped by the simplest things. It is a last resort thing so I imagine the brain would be looking for anything to latch unto rather than go through with it.
The most American scene in anime history.
I guess, but usually people who have been planning their suicide for weeks in advance are far more committed to it than five minutes of conversation with a stranger could change.
I stopped watching omega after ep 90 when they were on mars, does it get better?
I don't know, I think there are plenty of cases where strangers have stopped such situations. I even read once about a case of somebody who stopped because he found a stray dog at that moment or something.
That is the one thing that kept me from watching this show. Is it worth it at all?
I would def put Rahxephon up there, one of my favorite shows.
I just finished marathoning this. I wish I would have watched it with /a/. Great characters made that show amazing IMO.
I haven't seen a single episode of NGE ever, and I won't because it's not the kind of show I'm into.
Back when I was a young boy who only vaugely knew what anime was I remember renting Eva to try it out, I couldn't grasp the concept of main characters dying...this scene really stuck with me
The whole movie is perfect. It had so many amazing scenes.
The creation of the Cyborgs from both movies. The use of Chant 1 is perfect.
The tank fight.
The discourse of the Puppet Master
And the Motoko and the Puppet Master "wedding".
>all this eva shit
Surprised if we talking Eva, this hasn't gone up yet.
Why evafags are so casual?
>ITT:We realize that EoE is a masterpiece
What the fuck are you talking about? When he said "Bankai" it was a very stylish power-up moment. That combined with his entrance was great. It's certainly not the best scene of all time, but it deserves mentioning. At the very least, it is a rare example where Bleach sets out to be stylish, and succeeds.
i just watched this for the first time list week. honestly, my initial impression of this movie was pretty much disappointment from all the hype i've heard about it and how influential it is.but the more i think about the scenes and the movie, i end up thinking how well made and how good it was.,starting the series soon.
This was a good scene.
I also really like the scene where he's on top of the giant gunslinger mech with the girl and she starts crying out for his brother and he gets all pissed and tells her to shut up he's the one thats going to save her. For me its that moment where he really steps up.
I guess that just like everything with hype around it, it can be a disappointment when you first see it; and maybe it's pace can be an acquired taste, but it really is one of the great ones.
>all this pretentious asspie bullshit
Lets fix this shit
Oh the ironing.
It was pretty fucking amazing
Who knew Kyoani could actually produce something GOOD
That's the end of the original series. But, no.
I never though I'd cry to a movie.
Jin Roh's he was a wolf the whole time and subsequent battle is fucking amazing. It might actually be the single best paced scene of all time.
i never understoood why poeple liked so much that movie, maybe it was because i read the novels years ago and knew what would happen.
Because they did a fantastic job at adapting it, and it's REALLY fucking good on the cinematography front
GitS is a good wine. It takes time to bring it's full taste to surface. But, oh God, how tasteful it is.
I don't know about the greatest of all time, but this one is a personal favorite.
Goddamn this shit pissed me off when I watched it.
probably because that show sucked balls
On phone in the Congo, need to be spoon-fed on what show that is.
It's Kumo to Tulip.
I miss this show.
Did he disable a bomb with fucking bullets?
Came to post this, also came.
Enough of this baby shit let's get to the good stuff.
This fucking ep, man.
Honestly? The entire sequence of Asuka’s death, first it manages to get our hype up and delivers an amazing fight with top tier animation only for it to be turned around and ends with one of the cruelest deaths in anime.
That's mild comparing to what happens in this show.
None of you fags posted this yet?
Step down eve fags, this is the greatest scene in animu history.
Truly a masterpiece.
Trying to find the scene where he shoots a glass only for it to shatter and the shards hit 3 guys in the neck.
No need to see it, that sentence is already too much to handle.
Start learning either French or Japanese.
This scene right here.
>inb4 it's copied
I know, that doesn't change the fact that it's the most beautiful scene in anime.
I will answer seriously as anon deserves to be introduced to his little spider daughteru.
First scene of eva I've ever seen
I don't understand people who start watching stuff at random spots.
She becomes a killer bitch.
I respect your choice, but you're still a spoonfeeding faggot.
I was six and I sneaked into my sister's room while she was watching it on vhs
Alright... Wait, she was watching it on VHS? Now that's an early fan.
>not this scene
yeah that one moment where Sakura [spiler]kills[/spoiler:lit] shinji that was the best orgasm i ever had.
That was a fantastic fight scene.
Don't feel like checking if this has been posted already.
>Sakura kills Shinji
If you were under the influence of drugs while writing that comment please tell me which one it was. It interests me.
There is no Sakura and Shinji in that show.
>Ashita no Joe finale
>Cowboy BeBop finale
These are the only true iconic things posted ITT.
damn iam still drunk i didnt even meant to quote that post and i fucked up the spiler schame on me time for sudoku. i meant f/sn
You underage fags disgust me.
What? that's a gif?
Go the fuck to bed.
THIS FUCKING SCENE
wtf is wrong with you
You forgot Jin Roh
I stand enlightened my good anon
not THE greatest but still made me cry like a little bitch
This always bugged me. Why did his wife carved this? Was she a fortuneteller or smthing?
Last Shooting in Gundam
Lynn Minmei singing in DYRL
Raohs death in Hokuto no Ken
That entire sewer scene in Jin Roh
you have good taste
What are some iconic scenes of modern anime? Like 2000 and upwards?
Haruhi playing God Knows
Sen to Chihiro finale
Death Note finale
That is fucking amazing.
I think toothbrush & potato chip would be candidates.
Muv luv alternative
ptsd inducing moment
Not anime you retard.
Texhnolyze is perfect, i've watched it 4 times every time i watch it i find something i didn't notice the last time i watched it
Why didn't you kill yourself, the board would be a better place.
Now he understands what knives was telling him.
Amazing, I always get chills.
You, sir, have excellent taste.
why was 90's anime so good?
Everything about pic related was great/
And this was probably the clincher of the entire sequence.
god damn, this right here. this scene got me emotional as fuck. And then again in Diebuster
The last sequence in Mindgame is just amazing.
Because who needs anything else when they have the master Anno on their side?
Their Emerald Ri-Maajon
Nah but seriously, I saw that recently, probably the best movie is that one.
>Mami's death in Madoka
>The finale of FLCL
>The second to last episode of Tatami Galaxy hit me really hard
>I would argue really hard for the finale of K-On! being at least classic
>The scene from Planetes where Hachi like goes into his subconscious and then comes out and Taneba is there.
The only time I really felt bad for several days, an excellent scene.
EoE was great, but this takes the cake for me. Simple. Effective. Moving. Wraps up the story with a nice bow on top.
Because it was refreshing. They were creating a niche not catering to one.
One of the reasons why TSR is amazing, 3rd season when?
I kept waiting for him to show us he was a human. He was an animal.
That end ripped my heart out but Goddamn it was good.
Arega denebu, arutairu, bega
But it wasn't just saddness anon, it was beautiful and full with lots of emotions.
humans! will they blend?
Probably obscure for a lot of people here, but this one was a biggie for me.
Fucking ep14 was some fucked up shit.
I really liked Crest of the Stars, but I always felt Banner and every else was really insanely boring.
that isn't even the best scene from that show
oh wow I would go ape shit if that would happen to me
LOGH is truly a masterpiece.
Maybe not the greatest scene, but I'll say it was one of the most emotional scenes of 2013.
/a/ I am suprised. For once nobody shitposted something from naruto.
You better believe it.
>And then again in Diebuster
We all knew it was coming, but it hits you like a train anyways. It's all about how they pull it off.
Holy shit,I noticed the boobs,but I never thought that the sandbox was a vagina.
Not the greatest but, the best episode of the best selling anime of the last decade is worth mentioning.
Or the swing and the bars at the side could be male genitals if you're getting that abstract. Alternativale it could all be a laughing face.
Now I'm not saying Gunbuster's ending isn't perfect
But come on
Man, I still need to finish reading kizu.
Reading is for nerds, watch the movie.
This scene is nice and touching, but I think EoE is on another level.
Yes,I noticed the dick,too.
Depression Anno best Anno.
We need to kill his wife...
Was this one animated by the master himself?
NTR would be even more effective, not losing her due to circumstance but as a conscious decision, and a rejection of him.
But it's true love anon.
But its never coming out!
I appreciate one for its simplicity, and other for the complexity.
They're both great in their own way, no use comparing them.
>But it's never coming out!
C'mon anon we gotta keep dreaming. It shouldn't be long before they do something.
>Fall 2013! We promise!
They lied and they are never going to release it.
I will never not enjoy this
They will though. The amount of money that movie will get to them is gonna be ridiculous and I'm pretty sure they know that.
I'm positive that they are just hiding it like a trump card.
>This is what retards believe
I'm the greatest Eva apologist but yeah, that's great nonetheless.
So everyone agrees that Gunbuster ending is the best one
Then they should stop fucking teasing it to our faces when they practically had a trailer for it in the first episode of bakemonogatari.
This. A thousand times.
Huhuhu hyping the masses is an essential step to success.
You forgot power of love.
It was good but not the best and no where near iconic
