Just watched episode 9. I thought it was enjoyable, but I'm still getting a bit annoyed by how tough Ryuuko acts. But criticizing her about that is like criticizing K-ON! about being a slice of life. It makes it less enjoyable for me, but it isn't trying to be anything else than an over the ...

Hmm, I enjoyed FLCL. Never bothered with Panty and Stocking.

Argh! It's difficult for me. :sniffle:

I'm in a dilemma. So far, this show wasn't able to grab my interest. I finished episode 7, but I'm thinking of dropping it. I read a lot about pacing issues and that the story will get better once it progresses. My question: If I didn't like the first episodes at all. Is there a chan...

Well, spin-offs are the most likely. Especially because of the time gap in 3.0.

We can expect a BD release of the original series I think.

Nice statistics, but I expected more Linux users here. Since anime fans tend to be more into technology (stereotype, I know).

Direct reference to EVA's use of mothers' souls

It's been a long time since I saw Evangelion from scratch. I've looked up a lot of information about EVA and I'm rewatching it now with my girlfriend. My girlfriend is at episode 22 now. I told her that Unit 01 contains Yui's soul. I'm afraid that I spoiled the story a little, be...

It gets annoying when watching a lot of episodes without pauses. It's a great opening when you watch one episode a day.

A great opening in my opinion.

I just got a friend into it. All he knows so far is what I told him, which is: 1. Watch End of Evangelion right after watching EoTV, since it continues the story. 2. It's a fantastic series. 3. You are not prepared. Nothing will prepare you. I can't wait for him to finish it. He started yes...

None of them like anime anyway (and the ones that do don't like eva) so it isn't a big deal. Ah, OK. I tend to convince them about watching anime and eva. EVA is a masterpiece, but there are still a lot of people that didn't see it. I'm probably going to watch EVA with my pa...

when you singlehandedly made everybody in your school (only like 50+ people) know what evangelion is through Shinji's beginning scene in End of Evangelion. Oh man, you shouldn't. They have a wrong image of Shinji now. They don't know the reasons why he's so fucked up at that...

Perhaps calling Eva an utterly mindfucking series is an overstatement. There are some things there that you really shouldn't deeply analyze because 1) you're just willingly jumping into a black hole and 2) even Anno said some things there are just plain bullshit (i.e. doesn'...

Geez. I stopped caring about this shit like five years ago. When the bankrupt company that barely exists is suing the original creator and rights holder over it, it's fairly safe to assume that it's dead where it stands. But if ADV is nearly bankrupt, chances are that the rights to Evangeli...

The JP Renewal discs have a higher video bitrate and are progressively-encoded. Here's a rough outline of the bitrates for the various releases (including their audio tracks, which take up ~1 mbps unless otherwise noted)... JP Renewal: 8 mbps JP pre-Renewal: 7-8 mbps (with only 1x 1...

The EVAGeeks wiki states that the Japanese Renewal is better than the Platinum Edition, but I can't find anything about why it's better.

Is it the difference between NTSC-J and NTSC?

What I see a lot is that people want to have a story that's less complicated. The fun in EVA for me is finding out certain things while watching, but a lot of people want it clearly explained for them. There's also the people that don't like Shinji. Those are mostly more fond of action-o...

Mari's introduction was unnecessary. Her purpose now is pure fanservice.

I hope that Anno will make something better out of her, instead of having her as sexual object only.
