should i watch eva?
If yes, which version should i watch and why.
Go on prduction order.
Watch the original 1996 series, then watch End of Evangelion after that. You can skip death and rebirth. Make sure you get the torrent that has all the deleted scenes.
Then make a thread after you finished EoE and ask what the fuck did you just watch.
Then watch all the rebuilds.
Then start a 3.0 thread and see the buttfrustration and tears that follow.
>posting naked Gil
Ignore this, go straight for the rebuild movies.
There's only one version.
Don't listen to him, just do what I told you, OP.
I'm so confused .
What's wrong with the rebuilds and what's the differnce apart from oviously an improvemnt in sound and animations, due to the differnce in time that they were made.
>Make sure you get the torrent that has all the deleted scenes.
Which one is this? I used [bloat], does that have them?
Try looking it up in wikipedia.
>obviously an improvement in sound and animations
Just kidding, you suck.
It is not fucking difficult, OP.
The Rebuilds lack the atmosphere and emotion that the original had.
Don't get me wrong, they're nice to watch, but they don't have the same impact when watching the original series.
They are vapid and do not contain the main appeal of the original series: the plot.
I mean I am just guessing as I thought that the rebuild were made with a better a much better bugget and as they came out more recently than Neon did that they would have improved animation
Just watch them, if you can't tell which has better animation you might be a lost cause.
It's an acceptable alternative, though Bloat is superior in every way.
Okay thanks for being straight with me.
Whatever you do, since I'm assuming you're not going to watch all 26 episodes plus EoE in one 14 hour sitting, I have to give you this advice:
When breaking up the series into chunks to watch each night or in each sitting, make sure to have 25, 26, and EoE in one sitting, with no breaks between.
If you're concerned about the animation, then you're missing the point of the series.
Sound and animation in Rebuild is obviously better due to having a larger budget in addition to being made 10+ years later.
However it's not an exact remake, the pacing of the story and the development of characters is better in the original.
Also Anno may or may not have crawled up his own ass trying to react to the fans reaction to his work.
We've already proven that 25-26TV are different than 25/26EoE ending
One is Instrumentality, and the other is Rejecting Instrumentality midway.
I'm not really concered I was just taking it into account
>it's not an exact remake
That is a horrendous understatement. The rebuilds are shit.
Don't start this shit. He rejects in both unless you're retarded and miss half of the dialogue and visual imagery.
>Sound and animation in Rebuild is obviously better due to having a larger budget in addition to being made 10+ years later.
>There are people that seriously think this.
what's the difference?
Or just skip episodes 25 and 26.
No problem, I just want you to get the best experience you can possibly get with NGE.
Now get the fuck out before you get spoiled.
Bloat is a newer fan release with better subs and visual/audio quality. ZX is official shit from years ago.
Oh, guess ill watch rebuild then. I don't watch anime for the plot anyway
Watch it again, and if you still don't get it, watch it again.
Eventually you'll realise that 26 ends with Instrumentality, aka, soul's heaven.
Come on anon we discussed this yesterday night.
Visual quality. [bloat] is superior. Also, I think there's something about deleted scenes, but I'm not sure. Just get [bloat], it's better.
No god fucking dammit no. OP, if you're listening, don't listen to this asshole.
>that 26 ends with Instrumentality
No anon, if you actually bothered to pay attention, you'd realize that Instrumentality starts in the middle of 25, and the visual imagery clearly shows Shinji rejecting Instrumentality at the end of 26, along with all the dialogue which would make accepting it make no sense.
>not exact remake
1.11 was a remake
2.22 changed too much shit
3.33 was absolutely diferent, not even the angels or the story or fucking anything, thanks anno for runing this shit, fuck
I'm downloading one that says remastered
I looked up bloat and the they have about like 6 seedser
wow people are sstarting to talk about the ending now.
>all this oblivious
Why do you think shinji ended up congratulated by Yui and Gendo? Why do you think he was surrounded by the people he wanted to be with?
Why do you think he finally said "arigatou" after being congratulated?
It's all in Shinji's mind. It's his own paradise, his own little world. Each soul got it, perfection.
Why Shinji can't pilot Eva01 in 3.33?
Just download bloat, you'll get it by the end of the day.
>1.11 was a remake
It made significant changes that would make it impossible to replace the first 6 episodes of the original series properly.
wait so remastered isn't the same thing?
Because it's Shinji assuring himself or receiving assurance that he made the right choice. Even in EoE, when Lilith is keeling over, Shinji's still in tang receiving some parting words of advice.
Again, you're ignoring all of the context while focusing only on a misinterpretation of the final 30 seconds.
No. Just download Bloat.
okay then. Thanks mate
Not at all, if you checked, he was already in instrumentality when SoL parallel universe happened. That's the world that Shinji's soul wanted, he chose to live in a world without pain, while in EoE he chooses to be in the painful world with Asuka and recreate the bible's Adam and Eve, with all the misperfections that it would bring
Don't compare EoE with TV because both are different.
dubbed or subbed?
So now you're contradicting yourself to try and make a point that doesn't work if you actually pay attention to the fucking dialogue. That's all you're doing, you're ignoring anything that's actually said and just bullshitting as if that's proof.
whatever you prefer
don't you listen to the dialoge of the tv ending?
I'm not even going to consider the dub as It was made in the 90s and the chances of the dub being good are one iiin a million
By the time he found the answer it was too late.
This thread is getting DEEP.
>I'm not even going to consider the dub as It was made in the 90s and the chances of the dub being good are one iiin a million
actually it is a pretty good dub
dub Asuka > sub Asuka
Except it's not, because he clearly rejects it. In what world do you live in that glass cracking signifies accepting a world?
it's at 200kb right now so i'll start watching it tommorow in the evening after i come home
Everyone in the world got tanged in EoE and he still rejected it. There's no "too late."
glass cracking is the same as watching the light outside the tunnel.
He just found the answer, but again, instrumentality had already happened and can't go back.
You're just plain wrong.
Or you could get [2D4U] looks pretty good, although I think it has horrible subs.
becuz eva 01 is in the ship misato is flying around in
use either deluge or haalite
Lel, at least it ain't Vuze.
Wow are you really upset over the fact that i use bit torrent ?
Also how's middle school anon?
It's all theory. There is no right or wrong, but it's implied that Instrumentality did happen and everything ended with Shinji on his own world.
2D4U has both yellow and white subs constantly jumping on top of each other which can get a bit annoying. Other than that, it's okay. Do all other subs translate stuff like background radio conversations too?
Show us all that gay porn you are seeding
>t's all theory. There is no right or wrong
You clearly don't have anything to back yourself up other than misinterpretations that ignore the entirety of the episodes, and now you're just trying to cover your tracks with "B-but we can both be right!"
If you don't want to argue properly, just leave.
Those are fighting words in these parts.
But I agree
Bloat covers radio conversations for sure, and probably signs though I haven't checked in a while.
Shitty screencap, but the point is made.
Bloat's release has translations for background and radio as well.
Don't be silly.
I don't seed the gay porn after i download it
Download, watch NGE episodes 1-20
Watch director cuts 21-24
Watch eps 25 and 26.
Spend a month thinking about what the fuck you just watched.
Then watch EoE
Assume nothing else was ever made
Until they release 4.44, then you marathon it all and hate it forever.
>What's wrong with the rebuilds
Pianos pull ass like you would not believe.
kaworu has no gender you dolts, he's an alien
They weren't nearly as good as the series.
Then three came along and left a hole in the story as large as the hole in Shinji's ass after Kaworu is done with him.
Yeah, 2D4U did it like this. I remember seeing three subs on top of each other at some point but I can't find what episode it was.
Yeah in a human male body.
Look in the director's cut episodes. You're thinking of the scene showing shit happening before Second Impact.
Thinking of downloading this?
Anyone know if this has those deleted scenes or not?
I am giving you a legit answer, so trust me:
1. Watch Neon Genesis Evangelion 1-26
2. Watch End of Evangelion
3. Make sure you sucked in every frame, detail, dialogue no matter how boring it may seem.
4. Go to Evawiki online and read every major article about the characters, evas, story, angels etc. and get mindblown.
5. Rewatch them and enjoy to the max.
Trust me, this is the best way to enjoy Eva to the fullest, and to understand it to the fullest.
This is true, I enjoyed eva a lot more re watching it vs the first time I saw it.
Having a clue of what is going on is pretty good.
I think directors cut = deleted scenes, so yes
Go watch rebuilds because fuck you, because you sicken me.
1 You forgot manga
2 Wiki is full f shit and fags
There's never a bad time to post naked Gil.
There really was nothing in 3.33 that even remotely related to NGE was there.
Somehow I'm just coming to grips with this now.
you should watch rahxephon instead
it's like eva, except better
Is it just one guy repeating this in every thread? I can't really believe that there's that many people with this opinion.
It's a few. Just like how we still have a handful of Marifags.
Everybody loves Mari, even if they don't want to admit it.
Don't forget to complain about how Anno made Rei Q.
I want to strangle her in a non-sexual way.
You can't solve all your problems with strangling Shinji.
You can if the problem is a bitch.
What if she's a beast?
Transmission-Qt 2.77 da bes
Nice Catch 22 in that frame.
Wrong. Use bloat.
The Rebuilds are a reconstruction of the original series. It's almost like they took the base plot of NGE and did a completely different development, specially after the first movie.
Listen to the anon who told you to watch the original series. Then, if you want to recapitulate everything, you can watch the Death & Rebirth movie. Though I liked it, you can skip it with no problem and go watch End of Evangelion.
Then, you can watch the Rebuild movies. You could watch them without seeing the original series, but there's no reason to do it, honestly. NGE is considered one of the best anime of all time, and we still need to wait for the last movie to see if Rebuild of Evangelion will make up for it. Personally, I think it will.
That's just the first half of EoE.
No, rebuild is absolute shit and will never be redeemed.
They fucking changed the way Asuka is introduced and didn't give us Shinji and Asuka in the Eva fighting.
The development between them two was completely forgotten, fuck that shit.
>implying Rebuild can rebuild itself after going off the rails on the crazy train in 3.33
2.22 was so perfect, but Anno had to fuck it up. Oh well.
This copypasta explains it well:
>The genius part is he only needed to make 2.0 good
>Everyone was going to watch 1.0 because it's the new Evangelion movie
>Everyone was going to watch 3.0 if he made 2.0 good
>And Everyone is going to watch 4.0 because it's the finale
Also Rei was ruined.
>>And Everyone is going to watch 4.0 because it's the finale
Wait for 5.55 You are (not) fucking done
Rei was never good
How did they ruin her?
why you said that. now everyone gonna be #REKT
I'm sure renewal has the director cut episodes, what about bloat?
it's not so much that they ruined her from how she was in the series (although that is true), it's more how they set her up in 2.22 to be a a much better character. Or something like that, I'm not good at explaining these things.
I'm not for Rei vs. Asuka, waifu wars or otherwise, (from the series, Rei is meh, kinda just 'there', and Asuka was a bitch) Hikari is best girl. Or rather was until Rebuild ruined everything.
>rebuild ruined everything
I enjoyed it for the animation and shit, that was done impresively.
Everything else is shit, the introduction of Asuka killed it for me.
Rei is hot, but Asuka is best grill
>Hikari is best girl
You mean Misato.
Nah, Eva is shit
She only ever had sex with one man, how is she a slut?
Some people say it's implied she was sleeping around a lot before Kaji came back to NERV.
Yet she wasn't.
I didn't say they were right, I just stated the situation.
WHy was this deleted?
