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.

It's a difficult series to walk away from, there's so much to interpret and speculate on, even excluding the existence of Rebuild. This final movie will definitely make it more of a struggle to move away from as a whole, because I don't doubt this installment will leave even more questions for the viewer to ponder for years on end. Although, it's always a good thing to distance yourself from overattachment to shows/anime in general, I've made that mistake before.
What will be will be.

I feel like most of my chat/discussion contributions will have dried up after the Final film runs its course in this forum. I haven't really posted a lot in the NGE specific boards in a while now, and I have a feeling that the same might happen to NTE once everything is discussed to a certain point. (I'm imagining several locks of various threads discussing the quality of Shin Eva just like we did for Evangelion 2.22, watch it happen.)

I'll probably stick stick around in some fashion, though. Anno news is just too exciting for me to abandon this whole forum simply because his Eva stuff is over.

That gives you several more years here (if you wait until after the US release of the last film on disk, for instance). :)

Personally I'm in favor of converting this place into Anno central after a certain point. But let's just see what'll happen...

Eva 'll always be there for the rest of my days.

It wasn't different for me since I got into Eva 5 years ago, it won't be either when I watch FINAL.

But, be that as it may, those of us who make it have an obligation to build again,
to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find goodness and meaning to this life.

I'm not retiring from Eva, but after we've discussed 3.0+1.0 to death, you're going to see me even less here.

That depends on what happens in the last movie.
If it is as I imagine, I will no longer be a Eva fan, I will be a Eva victim. And my status will be jailed if I can get my hands on Anno.
If I'm wrong ... I can not even imagine this scenario!

If anything the movie will probably lead to giant burst in new fandom activity, especially if the ending if anything like the last two

I feel the need to retire after 1 + 3 as well, I've been obsessing and thinking about Eva for too long. I'm just hoping final doesn't let me down. I want it to be the ending to end all endings.

For my part, I doubt very much that I'll be moving on from Evangelion, it's been such a significant part of my life for nearly twenty years now. I'm sorry, or sad to say that I don't especially look forward to 3.0+1.0 for the purposes of entertainment or enjoyment, I mostly just want Anno to close this chapter in his life and move onto the next. I'm much more interested to see what he'll do or create once he has Evangelion off of his plate. I'd love to see more mainstream things like Shin Godzilla or Cutie Honey, or even some small scale art film like Love & Pop or Shiki Jitsu. Anno's too talented of a director to be trapped within one work, and he has unfortunately done that to himself. He's aging, and I'd like very much to see how he spends his remaining creative years.
