People claiming to be Evangelion fans yet refuse to watch the original series and have only seen the Rebuilds piss me right the fuck off
Are there people who only watched rebuild?
I wasn't aware that this was a thing.
Yeah there are a couple in my animation class that just don't want to be bothered with the original series
We should crucify them, even the people who don't like eva should help us.
OP here, haven't watched the Rebuilds myself (want to watch them all when they're all released) but I mean this still pisses me off
Holy shit, I wasn't aware that this was a thing. It's like reading a doujin without knowing the source material.
What the hell, half of the fun in watching Rebuild are the allusions to the original series, they are truly missing a lot (Both the original series and a lot of interesting rebuild moments)
why would anyone do that
If you're a proper fan your in emo hell, the perfect state Sado needed to create this masterpiece. /wrist
People who claim to be Eva fans that piss me off:
>ones who hate Shinji and were pissed that he wasn't a typical hot-blooded mecha pilot
>ones that loved 2.22 and its ending because Shinji finally "grew some balls"
>ones that watch Eva only for that one character/waifu/husbando/ship
>ones that hate EoE
>act like they no their shit but don't really know their shit
Sadly this is a large amount of the fan base. I actually had a girl who claimed to be a fan of the series tell me that the show was yaoi
>ones that loved 2.22 and its ending because Shinji finally "grew some balls"
That was cool in a way. But then 3.0 came and showed everyone why incest is wrong
Besides the glaring differences in not staying true to the original series, the overall feel of the TV series is what makes Evangelion so good in comparison to its shallow counterpart.
The Rebuilds are shallow in that they appeal and pander to younger crowd who are in it for the fighting and animation. Whilst the TV series had a good balance of character development and fighting.
So essentially, the TV series is literally '2deep4u' .
Made me throw up a little bit.
>is evangelion dub good
>is evagelion 3.0 dubbed yet
I really enjoyed both Eva (including EoE) and Rebuild because Eva satisfied my tastes of deep character development and well animated scenes and scenery and Rebuild gave me a nostalgia bonner while giving something slightly different.. and then really different
Ya, I flipped the fuck out. This random guy smoking a pipe next to me was even ticked off about the claim.
>is evangelion on netflix
Why would anyone google this. They could just google "evangelion netflix" or check the actual site.
Lotta dumb fucks out there, It's kinda relevant to the thread.
I cleared my search history before doing this.
I only watched Rebuild and ended up hating NGE, mainly because of Shinji.Should I try the original series?
Sad panda WTF
I guess he's got free time now, would he be interested in an acting career?
He wears black & white and is always sad. makes sens.
You could try but if you don't like the Rebuilds then the original isn't for you
Like I said my main problem was Shinji being such a whiny bitch.An emotional character is fine, but it just seemed too much.Does he get better?
Sorry, if Rebuild Shinji was too much for you, then you really won't enjoy NGE.
Ohh well, guess you can't like everything.
Yeah, that's ok though. NGE is great but it really shouldn't be pushed on people who obviously wouldn't enjoy it.
Yeah I don't see it
Guess this thread is dying oh well I guess I wasn't the only one thought this was blasphemy though
>>ones that hate EoE
What? If anything, I find more people that like EoE hate the rest of the series than like EoE and the rest of the series. This just feels like pic related.
EoE is by far worse than 1-24. I don't "hate" it, but I don't particularly like it either, and prefer 25-26. If you're saying anyone who doesn't like EoE isn't a fan of NGE, you don't realize that EoE is a complement to, and not a direct part of NGE.
>Shinji i a gay homosexual
Isn't that a bit redundant?
>people who don't believe in concurrency theory
Terrible eva fans general?
Unless you believe that EoE and 25+26 are meant to be viewed splitscreen, then even if you believe in concurrency theory one of the two is presumably a preferable medium for the storytelling (even if in that case it would show only a partial story).
Not that I don't like ep 25-26 but I personally preferred EoE as far as providing a solid ending (sort of) I thought EoE was a good mix of NGE's cryptic messages as well as providing a conclusive enough ending
Who do you think complains or is shocked and surprised by the homolust? Faggots who never watched NGE.
>my main problem was Shinji being such a whiny bitch
Before you make that claim, put yourself in Shinji's position.
You're 14, your mother is dead and your father has abandoned you, leaving you to live with someone who isn't even family.
Now all of a sudden your dick-wad of a father calls you up. You think that maybe this is a chance to have a real relationship with him. NOPE, he just wants you to get into the fucking robot, even using a cripple girl to force you into making the choice.
You are routinely getting your ass handed to you by giant monsters. You have no one to confide in -- your guardian is a raging alcoholic with a father complex, your roommate is a sadistic bitch who routinely abuses you, and everyone else around you is about as fucked up in one way or another.
If anything, Shinji is pretty fucking strong to be able to deal with this day in and day out and not go completely insane.
>EoE is by far worse than 1-24.
Nobody is a true fan unless they've done the following.
>Start with Death and Rebirth, then watch the TV series backwards from episode 24 until you get to episode 12. Then watch 1, 4, 5, 9, 6, 2, 10, 3, 11, 7, and finally 8. Episodes 25 and 26 don't matter.
After you finish the TV series, watch The End of Evangelion in reverse.
What the hell is this craziness
You actually mean you didn't do that?
If you do it this way then the last scene you see would be Shinji jizzing on Asuka
>there are people who think eva wasn't and still isnt just psedo intellectual bullshit that's unnecessarly complex and stupid
I'm still not sure if I should even bother watching Rebuild.
Should I? I loved the original series and just recently rewatched it anyway.
The choice is yours, anon.
>>ones who hate Shinji and were pissed that he wasn't a typical hot-blooded mecha pilot
This pisses me off to no end. Can people clearly not tell what they are watching?
Fuck, I'll do it. See you in 11 hours I guess
By watching EoE in reverse, do you mean watching the scenes in reverse order, or playing the movie backwards?
most people are shockingly imperceptive,as a rule
This is really the only answer.
He could have talked to Misato. She wouldn't have been much help but he could have tried.
Are you kidding? For pretty much the whole series Misato made it pretty clear she wan't a source of support for him. Whether she was putting everyone in danger for the sake of her grudge against the angels or going on day long benders with Kaiji or being a depressed train wreck when he was killed, Misato was never shown to be a capable confidant. Shinji had literally no one to go to for help throughout the series.
Misato was from a different world and didn't really understand neither Asuka's or Shinji's perspective, she looked down at them and their problems because they were kids and that blocked her feelings from reaching them.
She was supposed to play the cool old sister role, but as every other archetype in NGE, she ultimately fails and indirectly even led to more problems.
Both at the same timeprojected on the same screen
Those radio broadcasts made it clear that it was a generational problem between those who lived through Second Impact and became hardened by it and those who didn't.
ah, like the shining
he could have talked to his two friends.
I never watched evangelion because I heard the main character was gay
>even using a cripple girl to force you into making the choice.
That's blatantly misreading the scenario. Yes, Gendo utilized Rei to manipulate Shinji into piloting the robot, but it's not as if that was the whole point. If Shinji didn't get in the Eva, Rei would have had to pilot it. Simple fact.
i just watched all of the rebuilds and all i can say is my head hurts.
and they were well paced, something i wasn't expecting.
Who does this? Are you just looking for any excuse to have an EVA thread?
Can Rei even use Unit 01?
Anyone who tries to hook up Rebuild with original series didn't understand anything.
I see no reason why she couldn't.
>Implying an excuse is even needed for an Evangelion thread
No, I imagine tons of people do it. Hell, my friend outright refused to watch the original Evangelion because he watched the first two episodes and decided it was too depressing for him, so he then watched the Rebuilds and loved them.
>Confirmed for not watching NGE
>this is the future of anime
So you gonna murder him in his sleep or what?
Are you retarded? What makes you think her link with EVA 01 wouldn't be just as strong, considering she's a partial clone of his mom? Shut the fuck up next time if you're going to refuse to stop and think before posting.
See, I can't disagree with you because of the fact you're talking about 14 year old me.
14 year old me was an even bigger bitch than shinji, albeit it's not like the situation was good on my end either, but still.
14 year olds are little bitches, but I think I can safely say what middle school me would do in Shinji's situation.
>Probably talk less, hard to imagine I know
>Be even more awestruck by nerve and tokyo 3 as Shinji was
>Flip my shit at seeing Unit 01
>Try to talk to my dad when I saw him, get mad when he doesn't reply with any real answer
>Ask if I'm going to pilot this giant robot.
>Get hyped when I was told I would
>Eagerly get inside and launch the eva.
>Stare down the angel
>And promptly get my shit smacked WORSE than Shinji did
>Get rescued by berserker mode mom eva
>And proceed to never recover from that miserable failure, always berating myself.
Oh don't get me wrong, I'd still go through the motions after that like Shinji did, I've always just gone through the motions.
But as far as how I'd handle it, I know for one I'd be a visibly nervous wreck starting immediately after the first battle.
I'd likely vent my pent up emotions by fighting in an extremely savage manner, like full on beast mode berserker only being stopped when all my limbs were gone, and even then the mom soul would likely snap in and regenerate or some shit.
Point is I'd break worse than Shinji and be even more savage than berserk unit 01 from fighting out of pure hate rather than an enraged mother protecting their child.
He's already dead to me.
This fucking casual thinks Elfen Lied is too much for him and considers SAO and Angel Beats! to be masterpieces.
You should show him queens blade.
So basically http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=P1oTN-THCSk#t=520 ?
Hey, remember the episode where rei did sync tests in unit 01?
>Not watching the episode of Eva where the pilots switch units
>Not watching the scene where Rei literally cannot sync with Unit 01
Confirmed for being a faggot for only watching Rebuild.
Meant to reply to >>101105859
>Not knowing why Rei was hurt in the first episode
That was after Yui decided she wanted only Shinji inside her halfway through the series. Rei's perfectly able to sync with the Eva otherwise.
No, to sync with the Eva is to sync with the soul. There is no evidence to show Rei would've ever been able to pilot Unit 01.
No one can sync with it except Shinji.
Ask it for Gendo.
She was cloned specifically because Gendo knew he had to get someone to sync with Yui.
Come on, dude.
I refuse to believe that there are people like this.
His friends would have no idea what he's going through and I doubt Shinji would want to have them deal with his shit (him having that martyr complex and all). Not to mention the information about Nerv and the Eva's is classified.
Can you even into english? The whole point of that example was to explain Shinji's mindset. His father brought Rei out to force his hand, that's the fact.
I loved 2.22 and its ending because I thought it pretty sweet. Not sweet as in "OH MY GOD EXPLOSIONS WOW" either, as in genuinely touching. He said fuck the world, get the girl, because the world has consistently left him out to dry. Yes, I'm a reifag.
I'm that anon again, and just forgot to mention, I don't know ANYONE who hates EoE
NIce ass faggot.
I have a friend that refuses to watch the original series because "It looks too old."
The only part that I can assume that may be truth is the Rei smile part, and not even crying, just getting diabetes. All else is opinions.
in the rebuilds at least his classmates were a little more supportive
Rei a shit.
Why do you still refer to this person as a "friend" and not an acquaintance?
If you hate Shinji, then you won't like Evangelion.
Yes killing everyone is so wonderful. You Riefags are scum and deserve everything that happened.
I like the dubs
>not liking both girls
Get fucked turbonerd.
He's a cool guy, just has some shit taste in anime.
>not hating both girls like you should
Get fucked waifufag
OP here, holy shit this thread got bigger than I thought it would. I was just frustrated that some people would wear an Eva shirt and never watch it (all hipsters should die)
I don't understand why SEELE wanted Human Instrumentality. They already rule the world, so what would they gain from everyone dying and becoming one?
Then he fucked the world and himself, congratulations.
They're basically a powerful cult from what I understand.
Instrumentality could seem like a paradise if you don't think about it too much
They likely genuinely thought it would be good for humanity.
I doubt they thought they could somehow fight nature and be left behind in instrumentality, so they likely wanted to heal the crippled world.
I mean, look at every character and you'll find a slew of problems.
Maybe they just wanted to end it all?
Get fucked edgemaster.
They wanted to force humanity to evolve.
The instrumentalized being would be that next step.
They were religious fanatics. Imagine an oculist version of those Jews for Jesus guys that try to use political influence to get jews to convert and move to Israel and thus bring about the apocalypse.
>wearing anime clothing
The furthest I would go is maybe put a nice EoE poster in my room or something.
the way i saw it was, they were all tired old men seeking immortality.
why didn't they just become EVAs then?
i thought the EoE dub was good for its time
Now I'm imagining Taiga or Louise piloting an Eva.
Because EVA's are controlled by other people. Whats the point of being immortal if you can't do your own thing.
couldn't synchronize i guess.
They had the funds but Yui and the rest where the ones doing the actual research, and she had other plans.
Which part of my comment has you mad?
I can't really see any sort of reasoning in your argument. You should probably take your adderall before you try and insult people.
>Implying that wasn't a glorious and perfectly fitting consequence.
He'll probably throw a "muh real girl" tantrum next.
Ruling the world was just a means to an end, they genuinely wanted what they thought was best for humanity
Despite how much I approve of what followed Shinji's bout with Zeruel in 2.22, it wasn't ever his intention to murder people. He abandoned his concern with the world and his concern for his own safety, but he never actually thought saving Rei would cause an Impact.
Because Shinji is never told anything.
No, it'll be pic related.
This guy's face still creeps me the fuck out. Truly, this is the face of pure evil.
You're a fucking idiot OP.
>sweet holy fuck I better tell /a/ about this and we can share in the elitism
opinions? eva a shit didn't get past episode 3
According to that idiot it was touching that he kill everyone for one person. So he deserves to be to be shat on.
U U U AUA
Are you mentally challenged?
Shinji had no idea that his actions could bring about the Third Impact.
I'm not talking about Shinji. >>101107081
what, isn't this the face of absolute trustworthiness
But you are. Your whole argument has been about how this guy is an idiot for thinking that the ending to 2.22 was good based on the fact that Shinji almost killed everyone. But it's been stated multiple times that Shinji had no clue, nor could he be expected to have any idea, about the consequences of his actions.
I might advise you get your head out of your ass.
>not realizing that this was a thinly veiled excuse for an eva thread
the noes knows
Shiji is innocent because he doesn't know. Anyone who thinks it killing the world for one person is something good is scum.
You've really got to stop doing >>101108823 . Show me in his comment where it said "killing the world for one person is something good". protip: you can't.
If you could into reading comprehension you'd understand that we were talking about Shinji's motives behind the ending of 2.22 and not the consequences.
>Not sweet as in "OH MY GOD EXPLOSIONS WOW" either, as in genuinely touching. He said fuck the world, get the girl
Shinji is innocent but this anon is scum.
>Two lance of longinus in EoE
>Rebuild 3.33 have the same two lance of longinus.
It's like a whole parallel world of time after.
Are you just high right now, because you are literally making no sense.
If I recall, that's just the one lance unwinding and doing some weird shit.
But he never said it was touching that killed everyone for one person. Because, you know, Shinji never intended to do that. He was talking about the actions that lead up to that end result.
That's also just fanart.
> fuck the world, get the girl
He's disgusting scum.
>Implying it's not happened in EoE
Oh god, I never noticed that.
Fanart misrepresents things, and it's clearly a single, unraveling lance in EoE.
>implying there's anything more romantic than that
Why is Asuka in such a disgusting outfit in 3.33?
Also, what >>101110715 said.
Pretending to be retarded still makes you retarded.
Asuka's Q outfits are pretty rad.
Would you be friends with Rei and Asuka?
>>implying there's anything more romantic than that
You're scum too for thinking that.
Why not just tell them the rebuild is absolutely horrible compared to the actual series?
The clusterfuck that is rebuild is pretty painful to watch.
But turned into two sides
I'm an Evangelion fan but I've only watched the original series + EoE and refuse to watch any of the Rebuild.
But I think that the point is tat romanticism is toxic when it's really meant. 'Love is destructive' and all that. Both Gendo & Shinji were romantics in the classic sense of the word and that's what screwed things up.
yep, it sure is.
It turned into 2 single red strands that bent in the middle so they could continually turn around each other. That's not even close to what any LoL looks like anywhere in Rebuild.
I commend your integrity.
Anyone who thinks it's a good thing to destroy the world is scum.
Anon, I would awkwardly stammer and try to make conversation before excusing myself from the conversation and smacking myself for having no conversational skills.
Of course before you could talk to either of them, Asuka berate you over and over and Rei would just ignore everything, maybe make one or two one word replies.
I can't wait to laugh at your face, Ark.
Oh you just don't like the rhyme/wording, you don't really give a fuck about anything else, huh.
You'll be waiting until you die.
I think that all the girls are equally shit
Wow, what a slut.
Do you like to use your trip?
Make sure you get /fit/ for your nudes.
Well i agree. 3.33 answered some questions but threw even more questions into the fray. Not until 4.44 ties everthing up to make a coherent connection with the original TV series, i will continue to consider the movies as merely well budgeted fanservice on steroids. In that sense it's horrible for people to only watch the movies.
In the eventuality of 4.44 making sense of connecting the classic Eva with the new movies, then, still, people only watching the new movies are retarded because it'll be a sequel instead of fanservice. There's no escaping it, the original must be watched, and of course, watched a minimum of a dozen times with full attention and focus.
You're so dumb.
Why can't you just foolz the post # instead of making a needless comment?
Then you aren't really a fan, are you? If you won't watch Rebuild to see how the master reshapes his glorious vision into something even more grand, how can you claim to know Eva?
Look who finally got the characters in evangelion.
You are scum that don't give a fuck about anything except for one person.
>If you won't watch Rebuild to see how the master reshapes his glorious vision into something even more grand, how can you claim to know Eva?
Fuck you and everything you stand for.
>Not until 4.44 ties everthing up to make a coherent connection with the original TV series
>Implying rebuilds are connected only by same universe
We already discussed this.
I really don't feel like typing out the 1000 character response I've already made about this, so I'll just tl;dr my argument. Don't watch Rebuild expecting Eva. Watch Rebuild expecting Anno (that is, to expect to have your expectations shattered).
A consensus was never reached.
I was refering to the fact that you're expecting 4.44 to answer questions and be coherent in a ny shape or form.
My friend almost became one of those people.
He watched 1.11 because he was with a group who watched the entire series and it was airing at some theater. I told him for the most part 1.11 was like the original series except for a few minor things and one major thing.
He didn't want to watch the original series because he said that he doesn't like the old art and animation style. I called him a faggot every day until he watched the series, luckily before he watched 2.22 and 3.33. He fucking lost it at the "wait for it" scene.
Which of ALL scenes is the Wait for it?
I'd assume he is referring to the Ode to Joy scene.
I've watched the original and the rebuilds...I personally wish I didn't watch the original, it was a piece of garbage and a gigantic waste of time I could have spent watching or doing something better.
Longest dramatic still picture in the history of 25 minute episodes
A fan of something is just someone who likes whatever the subject is. Stop being arbitrary because people like things for different (perhaps more petty) reasons than you do.
I agree. They were all weak pathetic people in a unique way, which was the point.
OP here, go suck a dick I'm gonna watch the Rebuilds when 4.44 comes out so then I don't have to wait years for the next installment and I can just marathon all of them
How is being OP relevant to your comment? Do you think it somehow adds weight to your comment? This is almost as bad as a soccer mom going "As a mother, I am appalled by [insert thing no one with half a brain gives two shits about].
OP here (again), assumed you were being a dick (safe assumption on 4chan) see that you weren't, apologizing
I takes a special kind of OP to be this much of a fagot. Congratulations!
faggot*. Shit, now I'm the faegit.
Die in a fire faggot, that comment was addressed to me so wanted to make sure he knew I was responding
You have this misconception that he or anyone else would give a shit. Go get turned into tang, faggot.
Can't even spell faggot right, faggot
Yeah forgot I was on 4chan where no one truly cares about anything
No, >>101115026 no you didn't.
And of course we care about stuff. 4chan regularly debates mature, intelligent topics like how you're waifu a shit.
>tfw wake up everyday and am reminded rebuilds still exist
No, your right, I was wrong, 4chan is a beautiful place where the intellectual bask in greatness of higher learning and the betterment of man kind, you sir are a genius beyond comprehension and I will strive to follow in your footsteps
Because majority of people would watch something for entertainment rather than character study. I've actually had friends tell me TTGL was better than Eva because it had a more like-able protagonist despite Simon's character in the beginning being based off of Shinji only turning into a 2.22 Shinji by the end.
This is a thing?
I haven't' even watched the rebuilds, but I liked the original nonetheless. Ending was weird, but I though EoE did a good job finishing it up.
It's good, but I liked RahXephon more
Who the hell is a fan of Rebuilds, and not the original series?
Do these people actually exist?
