Anime Abandon: D&R / EoE Reviews

After watching his review of the sonic ova
I thought it would be great idea to set up a hype thread for his upcoming review of End of Evangelion

End of Evangelion was a mixed bag in terms of fan reception
People either consider it a great ending to the anime compared to the original ending or a anti climatic piece of mediocrity or just a nonsensical and convoluted piece of shit.

Bennett the sage tends to be cynical when it comes to mainstream anime/games, his Akira review is proof of that so he may not be the biggest fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

So good luck to him

Why do we need a "hype thread" for some random internet guy's opinion of Eva?

Because certain people think it's neat that some semi-popular internet site is featuring a review of an anime series that they happen to be a huge fan of. Maybe it's validating to a degree that the series is popular enough to be given attention by even the most random of internet critics, even if they're probably gonna tear it a new one.

Honestly the only reviews of Eva that I find interesting are the Rebuild ones done by SF Debris, and the biggest reason why is that they're an opportunity to get to see a critic's opinion on Rebuild without having their views skewed by their love/dislike of the series.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I enjoy his reviews so I'm looking foward to what he has to say whether he likes it or not.

UHhhhhhhhhh well its up and the comments are killing my good mood. Hate the fact that people not likeing stuff i like piss's me off so much, lol. :asuka_sad:
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

I have to admit, most of his criticisms are pretty understandable, specially considering the misinformation he has and the fact he watched the dub.

That said, most of his critiscisms of the characters can be chalked up to him simply not understanding psychology or the kind of people Shinji or Asuka "represent" even though his criticisms of Shinji are pretty fresh and give a nice, new perspective towards it. The critiscisms of pretentiousness and the series getting too caught up in it's characters as too pay attention to the main story could be chalked up to him having expected something else from the series and disagreeing with what the main focus should have been, his comments of Anno losing his shit throughtout the series give a clear indication he doesn't seem to get people with, uh, abnormal psychologies.

That said, i have to admit the review was much better than i thought it would be, even when he didn't like the series, he gave Death & Rebirth a very fair and proper review, so that's pretty cool. Looking forward to his criticism of EoE.

I'm guessing his EOE review will be uploaded on the 21st.

a lot of this is backing up my point that eva is the most hated of all classic/important anime. there is no anime more polarizing than eva. most reviewers seem to outright hate it

not watching (because I couldn't care less about Anime Abandon, basically if guy does reviews in video format instead of text it means he's usually full of shit, bad jokes and no actual insight - and it's that guy with glasses site so really, case closed) but D&R is kinda bad

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

I liked D&R's discontinuous editing. I really only watch it though if I'm gonna watch EoE without watching the whole TV series before hand.

Superman was used in a comparison to explain why Shinji's behavior is detrimental to the show... need I say more?

Well, it takes a hell of a lot of thought to understand Eva. Some people just don't feel like pouring a ton of time into it. Then again, Evangelion isn't exactly what I would call a "lucid" anime. Some people hate it for that, while others are just more motivated to understand it. Not everybody likes Eva. That's why this site exists.

I love how you use the word "disrespected" as if Eva is some kind of devine show that's above criticism "how dare you not like what I like!" I can't say much about the review since I haven't watched it yet but if he doesn't like Evangelion that's fine.

Yes he does take a comedic approach but from what I can tell his reviews are fairly decent. And saying that a review automatically is less valid because it's not in the traditional no nonsense text format is kind of closed minded.

We should have a thread like this every time someone on the internet mentions something they don't like about Evangelion.

Same here but I ended up realising that most Eva fans have some kind of holy deference to Evangelion, especially the TV series + old movies.

He has a strong opinion of why he doesn't like NGE, but I didn't find it bad taste. Nor disrespectful. I've seen worse things on the web. :) This is just opinion shared in a funny way, I guess.

Cells soaked in dopamine, certain emotions are processed here: such as the thoughts of two lovers - or a parent and a child. And it is the synchronization of the threads and bundles of A10 that splice pilot and Eva together; to become one entity, to fight. In other words, the power of love drives this weapon of mass destruction." -Yoshiyuki Sadamoto

So is the guy doing these reviews a hipster or something?
