Did you joined because you wanted someone to talk about the just released Q, or was it just a coincidence? :tongue:

Specifically to talk about Q, and in due course how it fitted with the rest of NTE, and how NTE and NGE compared and contrasted (and the manga - one of my first posts was about the manga).

^Actually I had the impression that you were one of the old hands, you have nearly double my post count and I joined last July. -o-;

A year later I have embraced 3.x and have accepted Asuka and the eyepatch. And still 2014 for the official sub to come out, now that I will get it yet, but still.

Not an old hand (here), but just old...

As for posts, check Nuclear Lunchbox's post count and start date.

I remember all of the excitement and hype that I felt about Q, and then how much of an ass I was after it came out. -o-; I think I've managed to get past the assholery and actually appreciate the movie, which is nice.

Yep. For better or worse, 3.0 definitely had an impact on us.

Please don't hate me for this, but when it first came out, I was rather indifferent to what it did. Then as I thought about it more, the more frustrated I became thanks to it.

A year flies by doesn't it.

Still, I feel that 3.0 was one of the most disappointing anime films I've ever seen. But, to each their own.

EVERYONE liking an Evangelion film would be the only true disappointment. As long as at least half of viewers hate the work, all's right with the world. If everybody's happy, that means something has gone wrong.

You summed most of the fandom's relationship toward the film! :lol:

Let's see... a year ago, I was eagerly lapping up all of that delicious spoilsauce and wondering whether 3.33 would still be playing in theaters by the time that my ship became stationed in Japan. Fortunately, it was... and I saw it in theaters twice. My hand was whiter and stickier than Shinji's during the opening scene of EoE.

A year ago I was just discovering Eva thanks to a friend who showed me EoE (yeah, what a wonderful to introduce me :uhh: ).

I have not seen 3.0 yet. I'm waiting till the American DVD release to watch it for myself. I avoid fansubs cause I hate them :irked: . Unfortunately I could not avoid spoilers :sniffle: so already about most of the major plot points.

"Shorty?!? Can a shorty do this?!?" -Edward Elric (FMA)
"I've had many lives, many faces. But there is one face I try to forget..." -The Doctor (Doctor Who)
"So say we all!" -Admiral Adama (Battlestar Galactica)
"The only impossible is impossibility!" -Phineas Flynn (Phineas and Ferb)
"Screw you guys, I'm going home!" -Eric Cartman (South Park)

If it's about concerns over accuracy of the translation, I can assure you that many fansub groups can match or surpass the quality of official releases. Take the Rebuild films, for example: from what I've seen, UTW/THORA subs are superior to Funimation's subs.
