Just watched EoE.
What the actual fuck did I watch /a/?
I have seen the series and the directors cuts of episodes 25-26, but my body was not ready for EoE.
I have the rebuilds, they can wait at the moment. My brain has had enough.
Now watch it and the series again.
The rebuilds are much tamer and polished than the originals. However, where does one find the directors cuts? I'd like to see the cut scenes.
A big fucking fish
I'm not ready for that yet..
I am really looking forward to the rebuilds, especially looking forward to seeing the new asuka.
>What the actual fuck did I watch /a/?
>my body was not ready
/a/ phrases general?
Man, imagine if it was re-done and it looked like this.
Minus the bloom.
Reifag or Asukafag?
I'm not trying to shitpost or imply childishness.
That would be amazing.
The image sucks.
The angels look flat and are transparent.
The see looks radioactive and doesn't blend well with the rest of the image.
The houses and the waves make every kind of scale looks stupid.
Hence the picture.
>I'm not trying to shitpost or imply childishness.
Then search the fucking catalog.
Your opinion on Shikinami (the new Asuka) may vary.
It's a stupid joke.
Sorry, archive, I mean.
I have no idea how different she is going to be, nether the less i'm still looking forward to it.
I rarely visit /a/, I hail from /g/.
Forgive my idiocy.
In all honesty, you shouldn't even compare the Rebuild saga with the original/EoE one.
They are, the same story but in different dimensions.
The Rebuilds are... different. Just watch it and you'll see what I mean.
I know it's a huge difference from the original series and EoE. I did some research and it seemed I didn't need to watch Death and Rebirth as I have already technically seen it.
Is the story still as complex and entertaining?
>Is the story still as complex and entertaining?
Complex? Hahaha no
>Just watched EoE.
>What the actual fuck did I watch
I dunno OP, what did you watch?
Rebuild Asuka is relatively different to NGE Asuka. She's mostly a moeblob until the end of 2.22.
I'm an Asukafag too
Evangelion/EoE are complex if you think them outside of the box that is the animation/people's trollings.
Rebuild is just mecha/shounen for racking in the cash.
Until in 4.0 we discover that all that happened on 3.0 was a story PenPen told to the penguins in the aquarium in 2.0
>Anno strikes again
I guess I will just have to find out myself, I know very little about the rebuilds as I have tried to spoil as little as possible.
The only real thing that I can compare it to as in just batshit insane would be FLCL and I really enjoyed that.
I cant wait, I have a huge ass wall scroll of 2.22 Asuka in my room and soon I will be able to see her in all her glory.
I loved it when she went psycho against the mass production eva's.
A lot of people say that about the whole Evangelion franchise.
All the characters in Rebuild have been simplified down into their archetypes. The depth and characterization that made NGE so memorable is pretty much nonexistent in the Rebuilds. If you're looking for the same amount of depth that you received from the series, you won't find it in Rebuild. If you're in it simply for the visuals and action, then you should be more than satisfied.
>A lot of people say that about the whole Evangelion franchise.
The difference is that it really is true for the Rebuilds.
>I loved it when she went psycho against the mass production eva's.
That resumes pretty much the great pilot she is, but the Reifags will keep saying she isn't.
I felt really bad when the MPEvas eat Unit-02 and Asuka's suffering inside it
I don't have anything against Reifags of Rei
>What the fuck did I watch?
that shit's all over youtube
the world is filled with people with little to no interpretation & comprehension skills
A anon who still beliefs in the great master Anno could say that the characters also started as their "archetype" in NGE and just need more time to "grow"
But then Anno is the devil
Once Air on the G string started playing, I knew nothing good would happen.
I was actually saddened by that, I actually felt for Asuka, that scene was really well done. I don't normally get emotional over anime, the only anime that has truly affected me was clannad.
But seriously that was brutal for Asuka.
I have nothing against Rei or people who enjoy Rei.
I liked everything about it, even if the story is not as complex i'm sure I will like it.
No one ever said she was a bad pilot.
>Still believing in the master
4.0 would need to pull off a miracle for the characters to "grow" then. I am practically convinced that the Rebuilds will just lead into another series that will expand upon all the characters, including the new ones.
I tend to get very emotional over anime, no matter what type. I cried for 2 hours after watching Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo. That scene is too rude for her just after she discovers that her mother is with her inside the Eva-02. And her beloved Shinji wasn't there to help her. That's one reason for the "Kimochi warui".
Most of Asuka threads end up being a discussion between Reifags and Asukafags and Reifags tend to say that Asuka's a worthless pilot.
"kimochi warui" is Asuka's VA reaction to "What would you say if you saw someone masturbate in front of you".
>Most of Asuka threads end up being a discussion between Reifags and Asukafags and Reifags tend to say that Asuka's a worthless pilot.
don't remind me on that threads.
Such discussions grind me down expecially when it goes over to the "who is how replaceble" part
That was because she knew about Shinji wanking it in the hospital from instrumentality.
I don't think comatose people can see with their eyes closed. Maybe they have superpowers like astral projection or something.
That 1st scene was pretty grim.
Just love both Asuka and Rei.
It's the Voice Actress's reaction. They tried to use many other lines for the final punchline of the movie but Anno decided to let Asuka's VA get it.
They call it comatose, but she's actually catatonic.
Interesting maybe Shinji tried to choke her for the same reason, but working inversely?
Is that actually true?
I don't think Shinji would do that if she had her eyes opened
She didn't have them open at that time, but she did before.
The beach scene was a continuation of the fight between Shinji and Asuka earlier, except Asuka finally understood Shinji thanks to instrumentality.
>I don't think Shinji would do that if she had her eyes opened
You didn't understand just how desperate he was at that time then.
That is pretty interesting.
He was desperate all along, he was a pussy.
Even when misato kissed him, he still cried.
That annoyed me.
He cried because when he saw her blood he realized he wouldn't be seeing her again.
I know that. It's just that it could have at least put a bit of faith in him, but it didn't really seem it did.
It's a shame Misato died, I loved her.
Asuka's final line was supposed to be along the lines of "as if I would be killed by the likes of you" but Anno wasn't impressed by the VA's delivery, so it was switched to what it is now.
I watched something the other day about Asukas VA and she said something along the lines of:
"Even though I was the VA for Asuka, I still could not bond with her as she was a very hard and complex character and Asuka did not truly become a part of the VA".
I may be wrong but I found that interesting.
So she actually didn't see him wanking.
>The beach scene was a continuation of the fight between Shinji and Asuka earlier, except Asuka finally understood Shinji thanks to instrumentality.
The fight Shinji and Asuka had in Misato's house happens in the oniric instrumentality dream Shinji has. It's not confirmed to have actually happened.
>You didn't understand just how desperate he was at that time then.
Shinji fears Asuka enough not to do that in front of her awake.
>He was desperate all along, he was a pussy.
>Even when misato kissed him, he still cried.
>That annoyed me.
God I hate people like you, it's like you faggots think you'd be a macho tough asshole after growing up emotionally and socially stunted, being stuck in an underground complex under siege with people dying all around you. Yeah, I'm sure you'd be the pinnacle of a hero then. Just leave, never come back, you give the rest of us a bad name
Miyamura Yuko knows her character well, and is my preferred VA for Asuka.
With that said, are you aware of her English VA, Tiffany Grant? I would say she "bonded" with Asuka very well.
The Rebuilds are shit
Also near the end of EoE it shows some real clips of an audience, would that be from the original screening of EoE?
I don't mean as in macho man hard as fuck etc.
I just mean that he rarely showed that he had the fight within him, he barely even moved for half of EoE.
He still is a good character and I can understand the pain, but when he can stop the pain and he chooses not to because he wont get in the eva.
I have only seen 1 dub, that would be PASWG and that was really well done.
I refuse to watch dubs because they put nowhere near enough emotion and effort into the series as the original VA's.
Still going to watch them.
There's a line later in the movie about what he did and how she would be willing to watch. some take it as if she learned about it since it's instrumentality, while I think she was aware as it happened, during NGE she was shown to be semi awake before.
Anon, that was me last night. I feel your pain. I was watching it over the not-idle-enough chat of inconsiderate friends who'd seen it all before though, so I didn't even really understand the parts that weren't bullshit, if those can be argued to exist.
>Most of Evangelion threads end up being a discussion between Reifags and Asukafags and Reifags tend to say that Asuka's a worthless pilot while Asukafags spout shit about "winning" Evangelion and Rei being a disgusting doll
Personaly I prefer the dub but that's mainly because moonspeaks makes me want to vomit
Tiffany Grant is insane. She is the only reason to watch EVA dubbed.
also her german is relatively good and she uses it more
>watching eva dubbed
The Rebuilds are worth it for the fights. Everything else is a step down.
>I just mean that he rarely showed that he had the fight within him, he barely even moved for half of EoE.
Fear is stronger than most people think and people will always consider themselves to be braver than they actually are. If I was in Shinji's position with his circumstances, I'd be frozen in hear as well. Shinji was dealing with the near death of Touji, the death of Kaworu, the downward spiral of Asuka, the apathy of a Rei who knew was no longer the one he had grown close to and a Misato who had all but shunned him at that point, on top of everything related to the Angels as well. No way in hell he was going to be in a position to do anything
Pretty much this. I also like a couple of the other voices, but fuck, Tiffany Grant is a bro.
I think those shots were from screenings of Death & Rebirth, but i could be mistaken
I think I was even underwhelmed by 3.0 on that front. it felt hectic and purposeless, 1.0 & 2.0 were certainly better than NGE on that front.
Spike Spencer did a pretty good job as well in my opinion. His screams were amusing as fuck
take this edges
I was also told this.
Yeah 3.0 was underwhelming
I got her autograph because of it and I've never even seen the dub
Take a good look at this face OP. She is the end of EVA.
>better music and not dated yamaha synths
>better art and animation, shiny and clean, awesome special effects
>better characters, not confusing emo whiners
>no filler padding with boring train scenes and psycho babble wankery that everyone rightfully hated the TV end for
>great exciting CG action, every fight is super cool
>more interesting setting, THE SEA IS MADE OF BLOOD, it's like EOE's coolness turned up to 11
>breathtaking climaxes like the ending of 2.22 where Shinji finally mans up, better and more awesome than anything in the original
There is no reason anybody would prefer the series over Rebuild. Rebuild improved over the original in every single way, and are simply way more fun to watch.
Absolutely agreed. Apparently that dude's fucking jacked in 3D, which makes it even better.
That being said, I prefer Shinji's screams in the original moon, because they're all that much more shrill and horrific.
Making a character's terrified screaming into comedy doesn't exactly sound like a job well done
No one's gonna fall for that.
You almost had me
>Just watched EoE.
His screams are actually quite good for the scenes but for me personally, they're also slightly amusing
They managed to make Asuka a Rei clone
I am so glad that the hollywood adaptation failed to go anywhere.
>cry all the time and wallow in self-pity as a bunch of girls heap my shit around me
wat do /a/? ;_;
I don't want to do anything
It should not be amusing in my own opinion.
Hence why I prefer moonspeak to dubs, some dubs can sound awkward or funny when they are not supposed to.
Maybe its because I can read subs fast too.
I like eva but man that looks vile.
Yeah, Asuka sure heaped lots of Shinji's shit.
Rei is best girl
Asuka a shit
Choke your favorite
God, yeah. But now that they seem to be starting to pick up Anime and Manga stuff to adapt, I'm getting worried again.
Disgusting isn't it?
Rei is an emotionless, creepy fuckdoll and anyone who likes her is a disgusting autist neckbeard who can't handle a real woman.
You know this to be true.
All of this.
What you'd expect from the master, Mr. Anno.
You best hurry on outside, Reifag. There isn't much time left for you to spend with your piss-encrusted waifu.
noobs. its also suggested that what Asuka said was a result of morning sickness...
atleast say that you quote the master
but on topic I like Rei ,but Asuka is just more interesting for me
Anon pls. That came from the English VAs and that's also assuming that their mindsex was actual sex.
I wonder, what does /a/ do with people who are neither Asukafags nor Reifags.
What if someone is a Marifag
God-tier taste man.
Seriously, I just wish all the Reifags would fuck off from Eva threads, nobody fucking likes those pathetic losers.
Fuck Rei and anyone who likes her.
I would like to see one no matter if it was shit. Just curious.
You arrived late. We've been waiting for you since the thread started. Now you've proved that you are a faggot you can leave. See you in the next Evangelion thread.
Marifags get mocked, Misatofags are cool and both Red & Blue like them.
I wonder if there are MIsatofags. Or Mayafags. Or Manafags.
Ritsukofags (which should be laughed at for having such tremendously shit taste).
Maybe even Hikarifags.
I think I just cut myself looking at this picture.
Allow me to blow your mind.
Don't bully Rei anons
Drinking Reifag tears whenever Rei gets rightfully shat on by Anno is fucking great. Reifags never fail to provide entertainment, but what else can you expect from pathetic, ill-adjusted neckbeards who only want an emotionless fuckdoll.
Rei a shit.
Funny because you're the ones stirring up shit.
All of those are a thing, but I'm pretty sure Ritsukofags are either joking or are proxy Mayafags.
>every fight is super cool
>like EOE's coolness turned up to 11
Rebuild Rei II is best girl
we just saw the world become tang. anything is possible. think about it. ti gives both of them what they always wanted - a family.
Yeah okay, but that's also assuming that they had sex at all.
REIFAGS GETTING BLOWN THE FUCK OUT
Fuck off and make your own thread where you can circlejerk over your fuckdoll.
Be respectful to our Reifriends.
They're not nearly as bad as Kaworufags anyways.
>using an Asuka image to hide the fact that you're a filthy Reifag
Yeah, nice try. Just fuck off you disgusting piece of autistic shit.
You've invoked the name, I'll be leaving now, this thread is about to become worthless.
Actually, I'm an everyonefag.
This thread was already becoming worthless when the blue vs red war began.
I don't think they're online today anyways.
The sex scene is just a metaphor for the total complementarity instrumentalisation is. As almost 90% of that scene it's not real.
>Reifag tears whenever Rei loses
>Reifag tears after Anno finally shows them that Rei is nothing more than an inhuman, stupid fuckdoll and Asuka is a real woman
>Reifag tears after they get proved again and again that a shitty girl like Rei doesn't deserve happiness
Reifags are a gift that just keeps on giving. Truly the most autistic and insecure fanbase to ever exist.
>This thread was already becoming worthless when the blue vs red war began.
It's just one guy, he's not even trying to disguise his posts, come on.
Ignore him, it's probably just one dude.
>I don't think they're online today anyways.
How do you know? Maybe the Anon who stirred up shit in this thread to begin with was a Kaworufag.
They are a cowardly bunch, I wouldn't put it past them.
>thread devolves to meta once again
I find it hilarious that the only decent EVA threads we can have these days are the ones where the OP posts ReTake.
I'm sure Marifags are really funny people to argue with.
>Having to compare the broken mess that is Asuka to the empty vessel that is Rei just because if she was compared to anyone else she would be utter shit due to not having a single positive trait
Tell me more about your "real woman"
Blame Reifags and their persecution complex.
I recognize that filename.
Doubt it. Otherwise he wouldn't have made a wtf did I just watch thread and tell us that he prefers Asooka.
it couldve been a side effect from the world changing and everyone becoming orange goop
Well, by "shrill and horrific, I didn't mean amusing. Yes, I found them more appealing on an aesthetic level because of those qualities, but I also found them more fitting and more effective at bringing out the drama of the scenes they're used in.
Then how would you know who the father is? Literally half of humanity would be a candidate.
I really loved EoE. Why didn't you like it?
I love you too Anon.
Marifags were very much a thing back in the general threads. I think most of them gave up on all hope of Mari ever becoming an actual character at this point.
People don't get Anno.
He's clearly a fucking Reifag who gets assblasted whenever best girl wins.
Reifags are truly scum of the earth.
I've never watched the dub but was always a bit curious.
Thanks for curing me of that curiosity
I like you too for being the only sane Kaworufag I've seen.
>posting worst girl
Why do fuck people even like Rei?
Are they that insecure and weak that they can't accept a woman who isn't an expressionless obedient fuckdoll?
I just think she's a qt
You can stop now.
Keep telling yourself that you fucking autist.
Ritsuko actually looks kind of nice.
Too bad for you, everyone actually agrees dubs for NGE are pretty good.
Because that's what women should be.
Go and jerk off over your Rei figurines.
>a-anyone who recognizes Rei as a useless fuckdoll is a troll and should fuck off to /v/, my sensitive Reifag brain can't handle even the slightest criticism ;_;
Thanks for confirming why everyone hates you Reifags.
I'm not exclusive, all other eva girls are great for that too.
What the show would look like if they were drawn to resemble actual japanese people
They exist to an extent, mostly as a satellite to Asukafags. They are not that engaged in the waifuwars though.
It's good to see that /a/ still has good taste when it comes to waifus and that Reifags are still looked down upon.
This thread just shows that asukafags are uncivilized monkeys poking what what they don't understand with a stick.
Just like Asuka herself
Reminder that there is only one worthwhile girl in all of Evangelion and she's the only one who isn't riddle with stupid personality issues.
Wait, so who would that be?
Well, I'm an Asukafag and I agree with you. Not all Asukafags dislike Rei.
Butthurt much Reifag?
Don't worry, I'm sure your precious fuckdoll will win eventually.
>likes a stupid jock
Close, but not quite.
2.22 is the only rebuild worth watching. Mari is the best part of rebuild.
How does she have daddy issues?
Being your own waifu has to be a hell of a life.
>Likes the most alpha pilot who's not afraid to get in the fucking robot and takes care of his imouto
>Stable and well adjusted girl vs the traumatized wrecks in NERV
>Absolute pure maiden, as opposed to Aslutka and Misluto
What the actual fuck, are we talking about Shinji's classmates? The nameless NERV soldiers?
To paraphrase: Get It On! Kiss Your Doppelganger
>posting an emotionless doll
Fuck off Reifag.
There's no Mari, Maria or Mayumi
>In love with Gendo's Sex Slave
Shirley, you jest.
Kill yourself, Mari is there to sell cheap resin figs. Nothing else.
>In love with Gendo's Sex Slave
It's not love, it's much closer to admiration.
Wouldn't you hate Shinji for what he did to the world in his selfishness?
>Asukafags can literally not think of a single positive trait of their favourite girl other than throwing "muh real girl" tantrums at Reifags
/a/ just doesn't like Rei because she's self-insert
That's why it doesn't like Shinji-kun either
Real girls have curves.
Why are Eva threads always so hostile?
Do you people really hate Rei/Asuka so much? Why?
>What the actual fuck did I watch /a/?
You watched the end of the story.
Everything after that is fan forced garbage to pander to the manchildren and barely a step above fanfiction.
Because I don't enjoy people talking shit of my 2D character
>still putting off watching 2.22 and 3.33 because, well, it's 2.22 and 3.33
Should I even bother. 1.11 was nice and kept more or less to the first 9 episodes and I keep hearing it's a shitshow fanfic past that point.
>dated yamaha synths
You can't beat that sound.
>Much closer to admiration
Yeah that's why she was wet with tang when Lilith cosplayed as Ritsuko, totally about "admiration"
>Blah blah blah, shinji
She hates |all men| (see pic)
Tyrone you lesbo loving autist, bow to your senpai!
>TFW I already typed a Rog quote to the other guy
You make my heart go..DOKI DOKI /a/non
Depends on what you liked of the original and what kind of anime you enjoy.
>Dated yamaha synths
2.22 is honestly not that bad
3.33 is kinda love/hate, largely different from NGE
Rei and Asuka are both great characters.
Still, Asukafags and Reifags have been chimping out at each other for years. I'm almost ashamed to call myself a fan of both of them.
2.22 is an enjoyable fanfic. 3.33 is a retarded timeskip fanfic written by a 14 year old gay kid.
>3.33 is a retarded timeskip fanfic written by a 14 year old gay kid.
So it was written by Kaworu?
Yeah, the show wouldn't be where it is today if if wasn't for great characters, all of them. Even the minor ones contributed something great to the story.
I know how you feel man.
TUMBLING DOWN TUMBLING DOWN TUMBLING DOWWNNNN
The song itself is pretty beautiful but it's somehow creepy if you relate its lyrics to the actual film
I'm about to watch episode 24 of Evangelion and I pretty much understand everything that has gone on so far (or at least I understand what I think I'm supposed to get) but is shit about to get really real and incomprehensible or is that just /a/ whining?
Pretty sure that was the intent.
Fuckin watch the show fagtron and stop worrying about what /a/ thinks.
You're ABOUT to watch? Just fucking do it already.
Why would anyone like Kaworu? Seriously.
Should I recommend Evangelion to my friend? He loves One Piece and stuff like Bebop among some other animus, and I think it would be nice to have someone I could talk to about Eva in real life.
I remember myself having that exact same thought. And absolutely, it's going to get ridiculously stupid.
Nope. I know that need of talking bout EVA to someone but you can't force someone to watch EVA if you wanna them to understand it. I talk from the experience
Plot won't be incomprehensible,but maybe you'll have to watch the last episodes several times to fully understand.
