Hey /a/

I wonder, rarely coming in here, what do you think about Neon Genesis Evangelion? Personally, while i recognize the action part is very good and accurated, what got me the most was the characters' mental problems. I've read somewhere in wikipedia the writer of the manga had some problems too and probably he's been partly inspired by those.

I have to wonder if after thirteen years there is anything left to add to the discussion.
>>
>>10245867

It's fucking deep, oh god.
>>
It's awesome, but there's really not much to discuss.

It's been thirteen years now. Give it a rest.

I like to just watch it while muted and skipping all the nonaction parts.

I have never seen it.

What we have learned from 13 years of Eva discussion:

Anno hates everyone. Including fans. He does things specifically to make people angry.

Evangelion is less about robots and more about how fucked up people are. Because that's edgy.

The direction is pretty impressive and managed to hide massive budget problems.

Thy symbolism doesn't actually make any sense, nor is it supposed to.

No, not really. Eva is just the brunt of a few silly memes.

I can agree to this.

Haha :)

I would like a spin-off OVA where Shinji has some BALLS and go all out and rape Asaka.

Cirno, you're one of my favorite people on /a/. But goddammit I hate it when you post those pictures.

My 3 favourite anime are:
- Full metal alchemist
- Neon genesis evangelion
- (changed my mind with time about the third position, was following one piece, naruto, bleach, but i got bored with them especially naruto-shit for being too retarded)

First of all know that I dont know names of good anime. Im going to download GITS as i like those kind of things. With this in mind, what do you think about my taste, /a/
>>
>>10246053
I hate those pictures with a passion. They sound like something my idiot neighbor would say, and that makes me rage more than anything.

oh, I've seen mononoke, I really liked it cept the ending but that was me probably

...I've never finished it. I saw the first few episodes, but never got past that. Dunno why. Most of the characters are likable, mech designs are FUCKwin... But for some reason, I just can't get into it.

Mononoke, not Princess Mononoke.

Two very different things. Image related.

If you liked FMA, try Eureka 7.

>>10246144

it's actually real, but I was (and i am still) ignorant about good series, I dedicate anime too few time

The only problem Sadamoto has is that he's totally awesome.


Well, that and he's the slowest fucking manga author ever. ONE VOLUME A YEAR MY ASS, HURRY IT UP PAL

Those are pretty much "training" anime. If you haven't seen them than your opinion doesn't count. But of course, they're like that because they're GOOD. Liking them means is expected.


>>10246117
Cirno, Fuck you. Good night. I'll see you tomorrow.

Oh! Edo Rocket. Same director as FMA.

Read RE-TAKE if you haven't, I was pleasantly surprised.

Also, I beleive the new movies are going to be along the same idea, reliving the whole story.

<<< Pic related; Kaoru sayswhat would imply this at the end of movie 1.

The single best thing to come out of Eva was Asuka fighting the Eva series in EoE.

Which was mindless action. Which is good.
>>
>>10246192
Please. You can skip to the good shit and you're not missing anything in Eva or RANDOM ENDLESS SHONEN. And there's not like that because they're good. They're like that because they appeal to the major dub-ime viewing audience, which is perpetually stuck in middle school.

Kaworu is awesome, fabulous, but awesome.

Movies should be more like the manga.

I'm pretty inclined to agree with this.

HOWEVER!
I always ask "fans" what they think happenned with Shinji and Kaworu. I'm of the opinion that they fooled around.
