Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

Ages in animanga are a bit contrived. Consider the number of school-children living on their own in any number of shows.

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

I think it's important to note that a story is not necessarily only about a character's psychology.. But in this case that's the reason for the story to exist. That doesn't necessarily mean that the world-building can be ignored, but it does mean that it can take second place without harming the ob...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

If something is on screen, it's fair game for questioning. If it's not relevant to the narrative it's a waste of time. If it is relevant to the narrative than "what are the angels?" is a perfectly fair question. You can ask, but you may not get answers. The battles with the angels help se...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Before Q came out it was thought that Q and Final would be one two-part experience. They may be intending to make it that way when completed, and so are holding back streaming Q until then.

How rebuild will end? Same conclusion through different means?

It won't be the same as either EoTV or EoE because Shinji's main issue in this story is different!

But "improve" implies that the same story is being told. It turns out that it isn't, though I agree that's not really clear until the second film - at which point it becomes obvious.

Why would he do that, the ultimate running away?

Do you seriously imagine for a moment that the conclusion of Anno's quest over the past decades would be to show suicide as the answer? That he would display such an extraordinary level of irresponsibility?

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

with the first 2 movies basically just a graphic update-remake. The first film might seem like that, but if you are paying attention, and know NGE well enough, you will realise that there are significant differences - and these differences enable a difference story to be told later on. The second f...

Why? The rest aren't like that (in spite of what some people say about 2.22).

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

The focus is solely on Shinji this time round, so there's more development of him, but less of other characters. And lore and background is reduced simply because the running time is so much less. But I will reiterate what I've said in other threads - comparing the new films directly with the old se...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

Do you think Anno has a plan , or he just wanted a quick remake in 4 movies but the studio made him to take it in another direction? I think he had a plan, but just as in the series he has been departing from it as he goes - more (much more) than before because (a) he is in charge, not the studio, ...

Re: Evangelion in Hungary

As discussed elsewhere on this site, we know nothing officially of Netflix's plans in regard to dubbing and subbing Evangelion. There is an assumption that they will redo the main languages, but how many markets they will aim for we can only guess. For an example, the latest anime that interested me...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

Netflix is to stream NGE/EoE, not the NTE movies. We are assuming (with pretty strong but entirely non-authoritative hints) that they are doing new dubs (and presumably subs too), but this is not officially confirmed. Rebuild is not involved in this at all.
