I alluded to this in another thread which probably wasn’t my best move so to remedy that, i will place my thoughts on my own topic place.

I am officially retiring from Eva as soon as the last Rebuild comes out for viewing. Probably won’t even bother with home video purchase in the future because i wish to follow other pursuits. There are real life activities i am denying myself in favor of too much daily consumption of anime in general so the time is now to enjoy. I might show up now and then but in my own time. Thank you to everyone here for supporting me and Eva for this long!

I've thought about the doing the same thing, but honestly — we're all going to be digesting the final movie (and NTE as a whole) for awhile. Just like every other Eva ending, 3.0+1.0 is going to be a) difficult to understand, requiring multiple viewings to fully comprehend the information available to the audience and b) ambiguous and open to interpretation.

I'm going to give myself a few viewings of FINAL (and probably one rewatch of NGE + End of Evangelion) before I put Evangelion away for good. But I get it: you shouldn't spend so much time thinking and talking about a single sci-fi/anime franchise. None of us should.

I'd love to forget about Evangelion for a few years and then rediscover it, and remember how it made me feel when I first watched it.

We talked about NGE and EoE for ten years, before there was even Rebuild. Why not ten more years? :w00t:

I don't see any reason to stop enjoying the NGE fandom when Rebuild's done. Unlike a lot of places on the internet, its nice here. And I could certainly talk about NGE and NTE for 10 more years.

Can't disclose much, but that contract I signed with Belphegor in exchange for a cute Ritsuko figurine forces me to remain an Eva fan for 17 additional years.
Such is the terrible burden I must endure...

I'll stick around but will certainly be less frequent. Probably will stick to the Film thread and some other discussion sections. I'll treat the Rebuild section like I do the general NGE sections on here - there's occasionally a good conversation that I'll throw my two cents into but in general I'll ignore most of the talk because it doesn't interest me. I'll have made up my own opinions on what does & doesn't work in Rebuild - like I have NGE - and probably won't get into discussing it a forum much because for the life of me I never want to find myself in another discussion with some brick wall of a person about how "Just because Asuka has a much smaller role that doesn't mean Rebuild is awful".

Though why do people talk about Eva like it's a 9-to-5 job? Retire? Is there a pension plan or paperwork I'm unaware of?
You can be a passionate Eva fan and still enjoy other things and have a life. I don't believe one cancels out the other.
