Why is this anime so good?
Because it's not shit.
because it's made by the master
It only got good after episode 18. Before that it was boring as fuck and anyone who tells you otherwise is a brainless sheep.
Are you trying to tell me episodes like Dance Like You Want to Win and the episode with Ramiel weren't good?
>anyone who tells you otherwise is a brainless sheep.
Get a load of this guy.
But it isn't. The fact that a movie exists to explain it's ending is a testament to its obnoxious 'deep'ness.
>not having episode 16 as a favorite
Even then. All episodes are best episodes
Are you calling Magma Diver boring, son?
Because it has shit ending.
You have shit taste
>making 2 episodes in 2 weeks with one man working on it
>Episodes 3, 5/6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, and 17 weren't great
You cockgurgling faggot.
Dance Like You Want To Win was embarrassing and obnoxious.
Let me guess: Asukafag?
Loving those counter-arguments boys.
Or a testament to the fact that the animation studio ran out of money.
The last remaining Reifag reporting for duty
You're implying the one they were quoting was even making a legitimate point to begin with?
You actually have to make an argument before somebody can counter it.
It has the best last two episodes of any anime.
But the movie wasn't there to explain it's ending.
In fact, people claimed it was even more confusing than the last two episodes.
Magma Diver is the worst episode in the whole series.
Actually, it's the opposite.
Characters fell apart from a literary standpoint.
Only if you look from the animation standpoint.
Is EoE the best anime movie ever right behind Ghost in the Shell?
No. Redline easily has it beat.
Art: goes for the latest 5cm/s studio's film: Garden of words
Lasting appeal on mind: EoE.
More like Rebellion has it beat.
I couldn't say. I haven't seen Rebellion yet.
Regardless, they both probably have it beat.
EoE > Rebellion > Redline
Rebellion sure as hell hasn't beat EoE.
Actually, Rebellion wasn't that good overall.
Rebellion was probably the worst contemporary original film I've ever seen. So much wasted potential.
>EoE > Redline > Rebellion
fixed that for you
Rebellion was nothing but a cashgrab to a series that ended perfectly.
There wasn't any reason for Homu to suddenly become a god after episode 12.
>Implying Ramiel isn't exciting
That's not Patlabor 2
I'd like to think the series gets good after Asuka appears
It got more interesting that's for sure
Have you seen the Death and Rebirth version? I think I like the original the most.
Death and rebirth is the original
read the manga
Haven't seen Death and Rebirth to be honest.
It's pretty under watched tbh. It exists because it was meant to fill in viewers who were in anticipation for The End of Eva.
It's relevance lessened further when many of its original scenes were added to the Director's Cut version of the show.
It's worth a watch if you're trying to see everything Eva related, especially the mire obscure stuff.
Might as well, I'm rewatching the series with my Brother so I might as well get to it.
i thought she said "chanceru"
I haven't seen the movie(?) but I listened to the soundtrack all the time for a while when I was depressed.
I gave it a try yesterday, to be honest I'd say it would be good to watch after episode 26 and before getting straight into EoE as an overview of the series and to prepare to the consequent mood change. Especially considering it basically starts and ends at Kaworu's death scene. But yeah, not really an essential watch, though the quartet bits were really nice.
>getting rid of Chansu
Eva has the best dubs
Pen Pen gets me every single time
Hell yeah they do
yep, I checked my archive.
Episode 8 @ 09:04
she does indeed say "chance"
my memory remains unchallenged under the heavens
>that zankoku's piano version is not in the OST
Okay so this is why I like it and I haven't reached the last two episodes.
>Shinji is a really relatable character and so is Asuka.
>The romance subplot between Kaji and Misato was really fucking touching.
>Shinji is the truest to character character I've ever seen in an anime
>Dance Like You Want to Win is fucking great and made me smile real hard
>the show balances lighthearted and heavy really fucking well
> The world has a lot of rich layers
ALSO Fly me to the Moon is a GOAT ED
Fly me to the Moon and Real Folk Blues are the only endings I actually like in Anime.
Agree. And just for curiosity, this was your first time watching EVA?
Pretty much, we wouldn't be still talking about it all these years later if the characters didn't feel as human as they do
This is my first time. I watched like 17-23 today. I'm getting EoE tonight and finishing it tomorrow.
What're you talkin about, m8?
Spike Spencer asks all the real questions
>You ran out of ink to didn't ya? You bastards.
So, which is better?
I figured my POV would be kind of interesting considering I haven't see the "gamechanging" last two episodes. I honestly don't even know what happens.
Nope, you have to finish the series first then watch EoE, you get a better experience that way due to how draining the last two episodes are.
This one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTgAMx5K8nw
They're not 'gamechanging', if you like the show, especially for the characters, they're not going to change your mind.
Just a bunch of plebs who can't handle any abstract introspection
I meant I was like downloading it tonight. I plan to watch the last two episodes first.
Can we agree that this is the greatest opening in the entire history of anime?
I kind of figured that's how it is. The inside the mind scenes have been so far really interesting so I'm definitely looking forward to some more shit in that vein.
I think TANK! gets the first place, but eva is easily a #2 or #3
It's certainly got a lot of versions.
The Heady Feeling of Freedom's the shit, by the way.
Yes, and it would be played in Anno's funeral singed by the entirety of NGE cast
The ending of the series seemed a little cheesy compared to rebellion's ending. Plus it's cool to see where everyone really was after the series, so the movie wasn't pointless.
Same exact feelings about everything you listed, I watched Eva a year ago. What do you think of Rei? At first I was pretty indifferent to her but once I managed to understand her character she became one of my favorites.
Then you'll at least appreciate them for that, that's for sure.
Honestly, I like them more than EoE, I think. They're certainly more memorable for me
I like Rei alright. The scene with her in the elevator with Asuka was one of the more memorable anime scenes I've seen in a while. I'm not really sure how I feel about her though. Episode 23 was the last episode I watched so I feel really sorry for her right now.
Episode 25 has some nice in-depth scenes about her. But I learned to appreciate many things about the show by giving it a rewatch, there's a fuckton of nice nuances and foreshadowing. I don't find the few post-Asuka arrival episodes silly, they actually have some great interactions and help humanize the characters a lot.
Yeah, I'm rewatching with my brother right now and I like the series a lot more than I did when I first watched it, mainly because I knew a lot about the series this time around. I'm nearing the last few episodes though, I don't know if I'm ready for them, then there's EoE. This is going to be painful.
>You ran out of ink too didn't you, you bastards?
Summarizes the entire last two episodes perfectly.
He said what we were all thinking at the time
I always try to avoid Eva threads because everybody seems like a troll, but after listening to this version of zankoku now i couldn't avoid to post and say thank you anon.
This serie was something different. Something that would only going to happen once in history. I'm having tears forming in my eyes in the last part of the acoustic guitar solo while i'm writing this lines, and probably nobody will give a single fuck but i had to do this.
I had to express how i feel remembering the overwhelming emotions that this serie had produced me in my life.
It seems like people like to write off those monster of the week episodes, but they really do have a lot of important little moments of development in them
