Is Eva way overrated?
Only because Misato and Shinji didn't fuck
Yes. It's a bunch of shit that makes no sense and that Anno thinks is cool thrown together randomly and people call it "deep" because it makes no fucking sense. Anno has specifically stated the show has no meaning and that he instead wants viewers to find their own meaning in it... and that some of the stuff he put in the show, he did so simply because he thought it was "cool."
It's basically like if people, for some reason, started calling Kill Bill "deep" and it took off as some kind of meme. Eva and Kill Bill are both nothing but gratuitous masturbation by their creators in the form of motion pictures.
yea it suck because i hate the characters that were made to be unlikeable..!
also it too confusing
I like to take quotes anno made when talking to elementary students out of context and apply them to every facet of the show..!
Maybe a little, but I love it
rahxephon is EVA done right
In reality? No.
When around hipsters who have seen like 2 episodes and only watch naturo? Yeah.
>also it too confusing
Yes, it's likely too confusing for someone who can't properly complete a sentence.
Even if you disregard the themes of the show and focus solely on the action, animation and character development it's still very good by anyones standards.
Post more Misato you blatant homosexual
>so-called characters pulled out of an outdated pop psychology book
>"story" is just a bunch of references to '70s anime Evafags have never heard of
>somehow a masterpiece
Eva is one of the only anime that actually holds it's own against other types of media.
I don't know.
I still enjoy it anyways,
Not the movies apparently. I've never seen them but everyone who has says they're the best part of the series. As for the show I couldn't get through it. Hated all the characters and I'm not really into mecha.
Yes. But Misato isn't.
It's only called that by people stupid enough to understand it.
depends on the opinion of those rating it, if you mean ever overrated, what isn't?
No, its a good show that has earned the attention it has received.
Misato is underrated.
No. It is still to this day one of the most iconic and memorable anime ever produced. Things like the TUMBLING DOWN scene have a level of impact that is almost impossible to ignore.
And you can easily argue that that is true even if you do not like the show.
One of the best scenes in any entertainment media if you ask me.
OP, some people do blow Eva to ridiculous proportions, but its quality and impact on anime is undeniable. The fact that almost 20 years after its release people still talk and debate about it every day is a testament to just how good it actually is.
20 years later the worlds keeps tumbling down, truly a masterpiece for the years to come.
If anything, it's under-appreciated. Lots of baseless bashing happens to this particular show, unfortunately.
I've only watched it while high, but let me tell you it was incredibly enjoyable. I'll admit some people probably hype it up some but I feel it was genuinely good.
No. Far from it.
Even more so in the current climate of anime.
>tfw watching EoE with /a/ during D-DAY in 2012
>realize how truly disturbing that fucking movie is
I still ended up crying during Tumbling Down for reasons that still escape me.
You're not the boss of me now!
No, it's just discussed way to fucking much between people who don't know shit, and those who know shit.
It's a constant discussion because of how many new people watch it along with people who have watched it and enjoyed it. Not really because of how "deep" or "controversial" it is.
I agree. Many people just don't seem to "get" Eva these days. People bash the hell out of Shinji claiming he's just a whiny bitch. "Hur dur he has a robot and girlz at the age of 14! What else could he need?! Why can't he just be a badass?" They can't even see the point or how true-to-life a lot of the characters are.
I know that feel. The first time I watched it I had to sit back and reflect on it for a while. I couldn't really concentrate on anything else for a while after that.
I don't think it's overrated, people just won't shut the fuck up about it
Left is manga shinji, yes?
I remember rewatching EoE piss drunk at like 2 in the morning one time and I couldn't even go to sleep after that. That decomposing Rei/Lilith head, man.
>know a guy who hates NGE but loves Rebuild
>accuse him of only liking Rebuilds because of the visuals and action
>he tells me he thinks the Rebuilds do a better job at making Shinji sympathetic and it does a better job at psychoanalysis
Evangelion isn't really mecha and the movies are shit.
I'm tempted to pick up the bluray copy of Eva 2.0 before I see 3.0, how is it in terms of content and dub stuff?
It was the best of Rebuild, IMO
idk about the dub
I have 1.11 and 2.22 and I'd definitely recommend it. The dub is good and the picture quality is fantastic. It's my favorite of the Rebuilds.
Now this is a ship I can get behind.
You must kill this man
Probably the most overrated shit in the history of all entertainment media.
kinda hard to believe considering how the distinctive look his art has devolved over the years but this is actually a dj pic done by Taka Tony from way back when
I can't believe the last movie isn't coming out until some time next year
Try 2016 there bud.
I think some overrating is inevitable with a series like Eva. Some people seem to have difficulty with the idea that a show can be massively influential and a multi-decade cashcow while stile being less than perfect, or even flat out mediocre. Eva will always have a special place in my heart, but I acknowledge the fair amount of criticism is receives is fair, considering people nowadays are lead to believe that its some kind of incredible post-modern statement about the human psyche.
Rebuild is...another whole matter entirely.
last official word was winter 2015 but I suppose we all know what that means
>no torso scar
Fuck, how do artists keep making this mistake after all this time? Do they think it makes her less sexy to have a big gash across her chest?
Cause they're wrong.
In the meantime why don't you Touch Your Nissan. Anno gets a dollar every time you do.
I agree that the original series is great, but I do appreciate the Rebuilds for what they are. They're good for just devoting a couple hours to get a decent payoff. They scratch the Eva itch pretty well and there's no denying that animation.
To be fair, her arm is in the right place to cover it. But I do see this a lot.
>tfw no q t angel gf
>you will never a shamsel
That potential figure money, wasted.
Imagine a whole line of plushy angels and evas.
>Missing obvious sarcasm.
Are you actually autistic?
where do i buy this? fucking where?
Googled, found this.
Damn it, forgot link.
Oh god I want
christ thats expensive. when i searched it led me to the khara eva store
I think it's a good show. Maybe not the greatest of all time, but still pretty damn great.
That said Anno is a whiny little bitch that tries to blame everyone else for his ineptness as a director.
Holy shit I want it.
How's the dub? Is the voice acting consistent for both NGE and the rebuilds?
Sorta? The supporting cast presumably died in some kind of bus accident because everyone who isn't Shinji, Rei, Asuka or Misato sounds like they've been replaced.
Best 200 dollars I ever spent.
It's overrated, but to be fair almost any anime would struggle to live up to the kind of hype Evangelion has received. It's a very good show. It's not the best anime ever made.
The dub of NGE starts off kind of bland, but gets better as it goes along. As the dub was being made the series was still running so they were all in the dark about what would happen a few episodes ahead.
End of Evangelion keeps Shinji, Asuka, Rei, Misato and Gendo. The side characters that appeared before are recast. The returning actors are good, but some of the new ones are shit, particularly Fuyutsuki and Hyuga.
The Director's Cut episodes keep a bit more of the show's cast, Hyuga has his shitty End of voice, Kaworu gets a new voice and becomes way more creepy, Ritsuko is the same VA but sounds way more wooden, Gendo was recast with a guy that sounds just like Japanese Gendo.
Rebuild has the same voices as NGE for Shinji, Asuka and Misato. Gendo has his voice from the Director's Cut. Everyone else is recast. Most of the replacements are for the best, the Rebuilds have good dubs. I do miss old Ritsuko, though, but she has less to do anyway.
I watched the dub for all of them, and enjoyed it. End of Eva has a few shitty minor performances, but the main cast is in top form. Rebuild is great all around. Go for the dub if you want to watch it in English, it's certainly watchable.
End of also keeps NGE Ritsuko.
Just what I need to adorn my desk that can be conveniently used to murder me during a fit of rage and vice versa.
Sub is better. Especially in the case of Shinji and some side characters.
Clone tanks and child soldiers
>Suki it? Buy it!
is fucking retarded on all levels.
I would call it rather "Too popular".
It's popularity attracted plebs who can't into complex characters and psychology.
Rebuilds do a good job with Shinji. Unfortunately, every other character gets shafted. I mean for Christ's sake, they turned both Asuka and Rei into waifu shit.
They all turn into Nagisa Momoe, right?
the Dub is alright, you could easily do much worse for english casts, but the original cast still blows them out of the water in every way.
Not exactly overrated, but misunderstood by people who don't like deep characters, only watched the rebuilds, or dropped after e16.
