This movie seems a complete break with the sequence of events of the last movie.

I can imagine Anno speaking with your team:

Team - Ok, Anno, in the second film Shinji stop of be complete loser. He saved the tokio 3 of destruction, saved the girl of the interior of angel and finished closed with her into a eva. They probably are having sex. How we will put the things in the correct way of NGE?

Anno - Quite simple: go 14 year in the future, change all with a big mess and destroy Shinji mind like the other time.

Team - Anno, you are a Genius!

Ok, thinking better, the second movie had broken with NGE first...
The end is coming...

People are throwing that word around far too frequently. She survived the opening act, yes. Beyond that? We still got nothing.

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

It's footage from end of the film, clearly. Takes place after Kaworu's suicide too. There's no reason to think she kick the bucket now

Totally agree with that. It feels like they were on drugs and tried to find the most idiotic concept ever to design an eva.

And why recycling unit 00? It was eaten, nothing was left. I don't really understand the point of modifying already existing evas and assigning them a new number. It's... weird.

The timeskip we didn't get; but the idea of a sentai team (which meant there had to be a pink Eva) and going out into space to face the Black Space God from Mars were covered.

Midori Kitakami, bridge crew on the Katsuragi fleet.

Most of the rest of it, forgotten what with all the good shit they must have gotten from Shaft.

Am I the only one who found the picture where the brunette girl is talking to Shinji terribly adorable?
SO THERE I WAS BEING KUBO, WHEN THE EDITORS CAME IN AND WERE LIKE "YOU NEED TO DO MORE THAN PANELS OF WHITE PILLARS AND BLACKGROUNDS!" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" SO THEY WERE LIKE "WELL HOW ABOUT SOMEBODY DYING?" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" AND I MADE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. I LOVE MY LIFE.

View Original PostXard wrote:oh you. Not opening 2.0 debate because with that I can see where the hate is coming from but what was wrong with 1.0 in major way? It was really good SF mecha film as far as I can tell. It didn't even suffer from pacing or characterization issues thanks to how amazingly good Eva's first 1-6 ep arc is.


it's fucking boring. would literally not have given 1.0 a second thought if not for it's Eva. Only halfway interesting facet of 1.0 is Anno's take on the "Shinji runs away" sequence which I believe was the only episode of NGE with which he had no involvement, and in that case what is interesting is that he so thoroughly chokes one of the most effective sequences of the original show (deliberately of course, since it wouldn't do if you were to find Shinji too sympathetic at this point). And before somebody mentions the Ramiel fight, the Ramiel fight is pretty to look at but no more interesting than the original, suffering from the same tiresome OH MY GOD BIG MACHINES ELECTRICITY SKHFGFSJGG fixation that is congruent to and just as annoying as modern otaku fixation with pantsu. but wait, now the giant power cables are CG!!!!!! real good setpiece there Anno

Military and tech fetishism is a part of Eva.

Major shout out to Ornette et al for keeping / getting the site to run as much as they have today. The outages sucked but could've been much worse.

The cute girl talking to Shinji is Sakura, and maybe she isn't supposed to be a pilot which would be good. I guess she's just a young looking twenty.

I'd like to see Maya already please, she's the only one I think left for us to not see!

Gendo's visor looks stupid too, gotta say. And Fuyutsuki balding? Who starts balding at like 60 when they had perfectly fine hair before then? He was already old and grey haired and near wrinkly so why did they think balding him was the only plausible way to age him? Because it doesn't seem very plausible to me. Do guys really do that? Late-late-late onset baldness?

Also Will-E is a silly name, hope it sounds better in the Japanese. Don't care very much for their uniforms either but oh well.

Edit: Girl with Pink Hair is named Midori (Green). Because lol.

okay, that was pretty good and understandable point. :lol:

But looking it from perspective when one's not familiar with Eva and basic plot outline would it really fare that much worse? I don't think 1.0 differs enough from Eva's first six episodes to warrant hugely different response as a product. (Funnily enough I remember not caring much for Eva's first half when I first saw the show, its goodness only revealed itself to me later)


I agree cutting ep 4 (the best episode of first half) was travesty but I think justified move for film as a whole.


(note: it's not accurate to say Anno didn't have involvement with it. It's just that he didn't personally write the screenplay for it. That doesn't imply complete hands off)

Misato - off the badass scale.

Angry cougar Ritsuko makes me think bad thoughts.

I am worried because Mari looks worried.

Unit 8 handgun fight = attempted lauch of Unit 9?

Also Asuka happy to see someone. Also Shinji staring into a tank or out of a window?

I really don't want to know... But yes, that pic of Shinni and the girl looks... Interesting. No thoughts on what she does/where she comes from?

EDIT: Oh yeah, that is Touji's sister Sakura. Why do I feel weird saying Sakura in Evangelion context?

It isn't that hard to tell which scene coincide with certain pieces of 2ch summaries/spoilers. The bit in that image can only fit ending based on what I've read so far
