This has probably been asked before, but I was just wondering, how many different sets of English subs are there for Evangelion TV? I know there are a few, but I have no clue where to start.

An arbitrary number, as many people have taken their favourite bits from several and possibly added their own phrases, and I think it's probably now impossible to untangle which are true independent originals to count or how many people/groups made significant contributions. That's not meant to be dismissive - I really think the question can't be answered.

Hmm. I would have thought that somebody would have went over the TV show and actually made a sub file for the Literal translation project or at least went over the show and fixed things up from the ADV release. In any case, thanks for the info. I wasn't too sure if there was other subs different from ADV's release out there.

But, any info on this "A2000A" and it's TL quality? It seems like it came out in 2003. Damn.
