Neon Genesis Evangelion and it's Rebuilds are masterpieces that have shaped anime as we know it today. No other series have ever achieved so much as Evangelion and this will never change.
What has any other series ever done to anime industry? Nothing. Evangelion invented tsundere characters and Rei clones. Gundam created mecha, but Evangelion perfected it with it's sleek shaped humanoid robots. With it's deep and intelligent plot, it captivated the minds of people for years, which is a feat that no other anime has managed to do.
You will never again experience something so good that was the original Evangelion.
Anno is a huge faggot.
Anno and Mamoru Oshii are my two favorite nip directors. I think they're even better than Ozu and Kurosawa. Love & Pop and The Red Spectacles beat the fuck out of Tokyo Story and Yojimbo.
Anno has a really nice wife.
Posting Anno in Anno thread.
You wot m8?
You're comparing two of the most critically acclaimed directors of all time with some anime guys?
Evangelion is good. But it doesn't come near real art.
There should be a list of anime series to watch for context before watching Evangelion. It is too good to waste on people who watch it as their first animu after Naruto.
Daily reminder that Eva fans believe that incomprehensibility and vagueness somehow makes trash "deep"
>that look of hatred
Anno hates being married.
He will make another four Eva movies about his marriage tumbling down.
I think there is a lot more to Eva than its metacommentary on the mecha genre. I see nothing wrong with people loving it for other reasons.
But it is not incomprehensible. It's some easily understandable philosophy mixed with sci-fi.
Anno didn't want to make it 2deep.
>replaying to troles
the way its presented though makes simple themes into a muddled mess
eva is babbys first DEEP anime
Perfect thread to find right after finishing Eva and EoE with my romalfag roommate and psych major friend.
The coffee he sells will sting with confusion for years to come.
Honestly there's nothing you can't understand after spending fifteen minutes on the wiki
Favorite songs from the Eva soundtrack that aren't Cruel Angel's Thesis and Fry me to da Moon? I like "She said,'Don't make others suffer for you personal hatred.'"
Every Kurosawa film fizzles out after half an hour. Take the ending of Ikiru for instance; it's a fucking wreck of a story. Ozu films are not films, they're scenic slideshows. Ozu and Kurosawa both had good ideas for a lot of things, but they were always poorly executed. I don't ever used this word for anything, but maybe their movies are just... "dated".
Anno's Love & Pop is just really entertaining and has the same charm as his anime stuff. I haven't seen any of his other films. Oshii's Talking Head is at the top of surrealistic comedy. Both films look and feel awesome, and have excellent cinematography and dialogue.
What is best song in Eva and why is it Borderline Case?
That's not hate anon.
Other bests besides
for me include:
The Beast II
I agree. The build up to EoE was done bad.
That's because budget problems forced Anno to rush NGE and leave a lot of thing unexplained.
That Rei scene was amazing. One of my favorite scenes of all time.
Only posting to voice support for the thread's premise. I have nothing to add; this phenomenon is as rare as EVA.
What is Anno going to do once Rebuild is done?
Will he grace us with a new 2-cour masterpiece? Or will he keep directing controversial movies such as 3.0?
>invented tsundere and rei clones
Well it did invent Rei clones.
He has been making and producing weird live films
Ah, Evangelion, so many good memories.
I remember when i was around 5 i walk in my teenage uncle watching Eva, particulary on the scene when wave of blood is hitting truck. It made on me so big impresion that years later, when we got first normal, stabel internet connection Eva was the first thing that came to my mind to download. It was my first anime that i watched as anime, not as one of the shows that happend to be in kids show block on TV. I still feel so nostalgic about this series that i can't judge it objectively.
Where the fuck is this from and why the fuck he did he keep that damn pubic bush even on the set
>particulary on the scene when wave of blood is hitting truck
You mean the scene where the dummy plug is wrecking unit 04?
It's kind of right, characters like Yin and more recent ones.
Anyone else getting Moyoco Anno's manga about married life with this guy?
>Still no 4.0 news
do you think his wife ever catches him jerking it to his own drawings?
But he only draws abstract shit.
>Neon Genesis Evangelion and it's Rebuilds are masterpieces that have shaped anime as we know it today.
Rebuild hasn't shaped anything and it's too early to consider it a masterpiece.
>No other series have ever achieved so much as Evangelion and this will never change.
That is too ambiguos.
>What has any other series ever done to anime industry? Nothing.
Akira changed conception of anime overseas more than eva, just for say something.
>Evangelion invented tsundere characters and Rei clones.
Tsunderes not, rei clones yes.
>Gundam created mecha,
>but Evangelion perfected it with it's sleek shaped humanoid robots.
Not even close.
>With it's deep and intelligent plot,
Gundams have deep plots too.
it captivated the minds of people for years, which is a feat that no other anime has managed to do.
Franchises like macross and gundam are more old and even more present.
>You will never again experience something so good that was the original Evangelion.
Evangelion is not that much if you watched akira. ideon or tenshi no tamago.

>Infantile Dependence, Adult Dependency
All my love
I just finished marathoning Evangelion, movies and everything.
I think i won't have any anime that can bring me all this emotions. Thank you for ruining my enjoyment by the realization of nothing better than this will be done.
>I haven't see evangelion, why people keep asking?
Anno doesn't give a fuck what anyone thinks about what he does.
Japanese people doesn't like to talk about their achivements
I really didn't think anyone liked that image macro when I made it, I'm glad someone is using it
>nothing better than this will be done
Barefoot in the Park
Anno was who revolutionized the mecha genre.
He can't into romantical plot.
4.0 will end with Shinji all alone....again.
Maybe he'll even strangle a bitch again.
Yes,LoGH is shit.
Where are your tsunderes and mother clones?
>Where are your tsunderes
Too bad baka Mittermeyer was too late.
>tfw when you realize that now LoGH will become much more popular with this new series
>it will become trolled to oblivion on /a/
>all of those people (yes, THEM) on tumblr will get a hold of it
>12 year old girls will shove shitty yaoi fantasies into the show like it's no ones business
>the hipsters will all watch because it "speaks to them" and it's just something that the sheep won't understand because they're not cultured enough
>they'll also all claim to have been fans of it the whole time, and aren't just liking it because their friends told them to watch it
>You'll quickly resent this new fanbase and slowly your hate will transfer to the series itself
This is truly the beginning of the end times.
I'll never hate my favorite show, I just won't care what other people say. Hide your power level and stay the course with your own taste.
what a stupid fucking post
stop applying anime terms to non-anime things, autist
Honestly, I think at this point whether you love or hate the man, we are all victims of Stockholm Syndrom and he is our jailer. You can love Eva or hate it with the fury of a thousand suns, but that wont change the fact that anime communities will forever be plagued by discussions of his work and their meaning until the end of time. You can't escape it, you can't fight it, there's nothing that can be done.
Rei is best girl.
I actually really like Kom, Susser Tod, but I'm a sucker for lyrical dissonance.
Shinji best girl
coalgirls or thora?
Anno hit his peak with Gunbuster.
coalgirls for 1.11 because bitrate was worth it and actually preserved more than THORA.
THORA for 2.22 and 3.33 because THORA can't go wrong. Also UTW.
>Rebuilds are masterpieces
Stopped reading here.
Not a big fan o mech anime, but that one was special. Is simply loved how they made Time dilation a constant theme in the story.
But Gunbuster being his masterpiece? Nah. Anno gave us plenty after that.
I watched 2 episodes and wasn't enthralled by it, so I quit it.
The final episodes are best, I didn't really liked the first ones.
The final scene is a god damn classic in anime.
By the way,
There's also the song that precedes it,
Which is good too.
It shouldn't be released any later than 2015. That year is too significant in Eva's story to be missed out.
What is your least favorite thing about Evangelion?
All the girls younger than 21.
