^ There is A LOT I admire about Anno's abilities to tell a story that makes me happy. Somedays I look at EoE and dream of making something like it.
PM me if you want specific spoilers for Shin Eva 3.0+1.0, but don't want the whole movie spoiled for you!

The Aquarium scene in 2.0 has to be my favorite scene in the Rebuilds, it's fun finally seeing Shinji actually make progress.

. . . then the crap hit the fan and 3.0 happened.

Speaking of EoE, I can't believe this thread was allowed to reach two pages without mention of this:
SPOILER: Show
Image

Just the existence of NGE and EoE have brought me more happiness than most other things in the world, but the family photo is sort of the one image that pops into my mind whenever I think of Eva. Even the first time I watched EoE and was a little taken aback by certain things this image still made me feel pretty good.
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

While that picture's not new to me, I'm still trying to remember now, at which point of the movie it actually did appear. Seems like I've been an inattentive viever of EoE. :huh:

^Right before GNR dies, when Shinji is saying something on the lines of "At the time I thought my feelings were real."

That is paraphrasing I can't remeber the excat line, but it's Shinji remebering good times with everyone, and something I forgot about too.

It was a very memorable line, and it pops up in my own thoughts about things when I reminisce on them. Mostly it's a reminder to myself to have empathy for myself -- for my past self. To recognize that just because my feelings are bad right now, it doesn't mean that my happiness in the past wasn't real, and reminds me that I will be happy again.

I wish that Rei was visible in that picture, but it makes sense why she's hidden.

What's that metal bar in the middle of the frame? It looks like the barrel of a rifle or something, but that doesn't make any sense. What the hell is it?

The scene in episode 17 where Hikari is fumbling her words and blushing at Toji as school is closing down and he just got to eat lunch. I always consider them to be the most underused canon couple in the series that should've received screen time in the final episodes.

Pretty much all of Episode 19. Especially Kaji's pep talk to Shinji. The whole thing was pretty heart warming to me, bc even when everyone had given up on Shinji, even himself, Kaji still had faith in him.Also seeing Shinji pretty much give his middle finger to his father and Nerv, when he takes it upon himself to go back and pilot unit 01 and pretty much kick ass. Also Unit 01 resisting the dummy plug and not letting Rei pilot it was pretty perfect too, the whole episode just basically showing that Shinji is destined to be a pilot, whether he likes it or not. IDK i guess seeing Shinji getting some respect and justice was pretty badass and awesome to me.

The Matarael and Sahaquiel (both versions) fights. Mostly because it shows all pilots working together and that they're both before everything goes to hell.

The last scene at EoE made me squeal for some reason.

Any comedic scene makes me happy. The pre-ending scene (?) in EoE is the most uplifting shit ever conceived (starting with the live action sequence).
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

1. Because a filmmaker has the balls to open their film with an announcement that pronounced & definitive. With one scene you know exactly what "End of Evangelion" is going to be! It's not going to be a fan-friendly, going for the easy win type experience. It's gonna be aggressive, confrontational, risky & focused. The kind of films I love.

2. Narrative aside, based on the amount of gross fan art that exists, the fact that a filmmaker is holding up a mirror to certain members of the audience & saying "You think this is okay?", is INCREDIBLE!

Man, do I love 'End of Evangelion'!


I love the scene too, but I interpret it very differently. I see it as a statement about what self-loathing can do to people.

A scene that makes me happy, I suppose, is the final scene in Episode 26; right after the "slice of life" sequence. I keep looping that scene in the hopes that I'll eventually take the characters' advice to heart.

*The part of Hedgehog's Dilemma when Shinji wanders. This is ironic. It took me many watches to realize that he isn't feeling the same. Even so, I doubt that he feels unexquisite on the mountainside.
*When Rei smiles. :heart:
*Shinji and Kaworu in the bath.
*"That from someone who uses cats to fill the holes in her own life". I find it far more amusing than I can account for.
*Asuka's aristeia.
*Rei und Kaworu bleiben meine Freuden and the following death of Instrumentality.

The look that Ritsuko gives after that line is what sells it. Like she's thinking: "Low blow, bitch!" :lol:

Hmm, lets see.

-Rei's smile (both TV and Rebuild, with Rebuild edging out just a hair)
-The Part of 2.0 where Shinji God-Modes to save Rei (Possibly the one time I've appreciated Spike Spencer vs Megumi Ogata. Because "I want Rei, GIVE HER BACK! Just gets me better than "Give me Back Ayanami!") The Shinji/Rei-shipper in me cried Manly Tears {Figuratively}. Also, Shinji's single most badass moment in all of anything Evangelion.
-End of Evangelion when Shinji chokes Asuka during Instrumentality, because you can only take so much abuse.
-When Shinji tells everyone in WILLE to basically $%^& Off in 3.0. Why you ask? Because these people just strap a bomb on his neck and treat him like crap, without so much as an explanation other than he God-Moded in 2.0

Conclusion of episode 7 was pretty sweet.
