What is the best way to watch all the Eva episodes?

This is a forum for casual discussion of Evangelion. Topics like "Asuka is hot!" or "Which Eva kicks the most ass?" belong here.

Yes Surround Sound.

I know what you mean. Expecally when your an older brother of 3 other lil monsters! No time for yourself thats why I use the night to accomplish my Eva needs.
Don't ban me for a limited time! Either ban me for good or let me be. (I only hold grudges for a few years lol)

try five little monsters that will interupt you no matter when you watch eva. then an overprotective mom that won't let you stay up past 10pm

Head phones for my computer and a dvd drive also work if a good speaker system is beyond your means. Works well for me.
There was an EVA Nerd here, but now he's gone.

MAGI wrote:I'd say, have a free day. Wake up at about 9:30, and watch the entire series in one day. Be sure to have lots of coffee/red bull beforehand, and refill every three hours. No food is not permited, however. You must be sure to be awake and alert whilst watching. Try to take as much in, character-wise. Once you have understood the characters like you understand yourself, have a three day rest period.
Then, come back and rewatch an episode a day, as many times as needed to understand as much of the plot as possible until you have done so for all 26 episodes.
Then, have a day off, and watch Death True^2.
Rewatch your favourite episodes (a maximum of five) and then watch End of Evangelion immediately afterwards. The next day, watch it again.

The theory behind this?
Coffee/red bull has much caffine, and it helps you stay alert as you watch the episodes. The energy will help you get excited when the characters do, get mood swings when the Children do, and get beserk when Shinji does. The reason why you can't eat is because it distracts you, both consciously and subconsciously. You can be having a really nice chocolate ice-cream whilst watching Shinji scream his balls off at Toji, and so might accidentally form an association for pleasure to Shinji having a bad day, thus subtly ruining the whole thing. Understand the characters, first, because they are what really matter, in the end. The Affective Phase
When you get to the end, you watch those episodes again but not in bulk. Your brain, now, needs to gather as much information out of those episodes as possible, so it needs time. When you get to the last two episodes, you may be able to interpret better what they are talking about, and what it means for them. The Cognitive Phase
Now, when you are at Death True^2, you can see what Anno wants to emphasise most from the episodes you've watched, plus some extra stuff. Therefore, this only needs one viewing. Post-cognitive/Interlude
Now, you can choose which episodes you want to watch, again. These would be the episodes that made the most impact on you. You see and understand how the story move the characters, and how the characters move the story at its most important parts. By now, the emotional attatchment should be made, and you can understand what is important. Judgement
And, you watch them all end in End of Evangelion. Sentence

It would have all come to you, hopefully. Thus, Enlightenment.
And you watch it one last time, to get what information you missed, thus, Complimentation.

That, hopefully, should be what you need for the Eva experience. 8)


I sorta agree with this , but MAGI a lot of red bull is not to go for u .
I have too much anime, yet it's not enough. Anime Addict, if it were a drug; I'd be dead.
