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.

Magma Diver is the worst episode in the whole series.

Actually, it's the opposite.

Characters fell apart from a literary standpoint.

No. Redline easily has it beat.

Overall? Yes.
Art: goes for the latest 5cm/s studio's film: Garden of words
Story: GitS
Lasting appeal on mind: EoE.

Actually, Rebellion wasn't that good overall.

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.

Have you seen the Death and Rebirth version? I think I like the original the most.

>>100993977

Death and rebirth is the original

read the manga
>>
>>100993977
Haven't seen Death and Rebirth to be honest.
>>
>>100994514

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 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.

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.

>>100996683
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.

>>100996729

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.

>>100996886
I think TANK! gets the first place, but eva is easily a #2 or #3

>>100996886

Yes, and it would be played in Anno's funeral singed by the entirety of NGE cast

>>100992392
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.
>>
>>100996374
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.
>>100996990
Then you'll at least appreciate them for that, that's for sure.

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.
>>
>>100997933
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.

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.
