I liked how Asuka's character was the same overall, but portrayed more realistically. I think the new Asuka is less generic and more representative of what Anno was going for in the first place.

Basically, does it tell a character driven story during its 160 minute running time (jesus fucking christ really?) that someone who doesn't know or really care about the tiniest details of the show can get into? Well, it helps to know what Yuki is normally like, and of course the movie builds on th...

And by the way, IIRC, Yuki partly did what she did for Kyon due to going nuts (powers included) from Endless Eight (which I also loved). For some reason the effects of that arc didn't even occur to me when I watched the film. I remember Kyon being all "you're not buggy;...

Some folks on /a/ have mentioned more thorough development of Nagato's character, but TBH I didn't see all that much development being made with her. She was given a lot of screen time and a LOT of the plot's focus, but with the exception of the fact that she cracked under strain, I don...

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya [spoilers]

I would think a thread like this would have been made already, but after searching through five pages of topics here, I suppose I was wrong. Feel free to point me in the right direction if I missed it. So, I watched the movie yesterday and it impressed me enough to make this post. Heck, after finish...

LK's best episodes are his early ones. Especially episode 6. That's because he was making the episodes to be funny on their own, rather than pandering to a fanbase. I think it was about Season 2 that YGO: Abridged lost most of its humor. Also, on topic, I'd just like to say that some ab...

Okay, maybe it's supposed to be a given or something (since I haven't seen a single person mention it) but READ THE NEON GENESIS EVANGELION MANGA! The art is phenomenal, the story and characters (changed slightly from the TV series)) are great, and all in all I'd say ...

At what point do we see Rei advance the plot? She's privy to it, and reacts to it, but never really ADVANCES it. With the exception of EoE, this does not occur. No one advances the plot in NGE; every action taken (with the exception of Gendo's and Seele's) is purely reactionary....

You know, "a civilian in war" is a good fit for Shinji too -- he's just this random civilian who's been in effect drafted because of what his father has built exactly as Amuro. The similarities are such that there's a tongue in cheek "Gundam ripped off Evangelion" co...

Actually aside from 8, both series followed the novels pretty closely, if you thought the writing was worse in one season, it's because maybe the original story didn't mesh as well with you? For me, Season 2 was substantially less interesting because they only showed three distinct events. ...

something about Sadamoto being awesome at character design While I agree with you for the most part, I think he really dropped the ball when it came to the female pilots in NGE. Sure, they have different personalities, but you can swap their heads and they'll look no different. (See this pi...

You do realize your avatar is from book 4, which a movie was just made about and what most fans consider the best story of all of them, right? Shit, bro, that's a shame. Especially being a Yuki fan as you seem to be. Endless eight was just some bullshit Kadokawa pulled. The actual story is a si...

Someone hasn't read the novels. Actually, it looks like most of you haven't. I have no desire to, either, because Season 2 shows what happens when you take away everything that made the series good (humor, innovation, diverse situations, and just general over-the-topness) and focus ...
