Hello, I'm new here. I got around to watching evangelion this summer. I rarely watch anime and weeb culture tends to put me off, so I didn't expect anything special. This, however, turned out to be a huge mistake. Evangelion blew my mind and is now one of my favorite works of arts. I think Evangelion truly does a great job when it comes to giving great insights into the psyche of its characters. My personal favorite characters are Shinji, Rei and Gendo.

I've decided to post here since people seem to be nice and I want to take part in some discussions, but there are a lot of threads. I'm not blaming the forum, I'm just not used to posting on forums. I don't know if this forum is very active either.

Welcome!

The forums aren't the hive of activity they were in the early days, but they still have a reasonable amount of traffic (several posts per day), albeit mostly concerning the New Theatrical Edition movies (aka the Rebuilds). That still leaves the wealth of past discussions that remain in the archives and still up for comment.

Does that mean that if I see a previuos thread I can reply even though it's really old?

Rather than spawning new threads on the same subject, yes. If it's really old, the original participants may no longer be active, though.

Hey guys! It’s been a few months since I last logged in. I was more of a lurker here than anything but still posted every so often. I’ve had a busy couple months between work and kids and just living life. I hope to visit more regularly and try and catch up. Is there a World Cup thread? Hope you all have been well.

Hello, longtime fan of NGE, used to lurk the old evamonkey forum when I was a wee lad. Finally got around to seeing 3.0+1.0 in theaters and am now foisting the original series onto my partner...I'm sure I'll have much to note/talk about watching again at my age, Anno seems less like a mysterious auteur to me now and more like a peer. Maybe a really weird peer.

Hello! Long time avid Evangelion fan, and as of recent, forum lurker (or whatever you call someone who spent the last few weeks or so reading old forum posts). Rewatched Shin Eva in theaters back in december and after having spent the better part of the last month digging through forum threads, rewatching/rereading various other Evangelion media, and worst of all getting back into reading Eva fanfiction, I think its safe to say I'm back to being hyper-focused on the series again (and just in time for -46h)

Anyways, this is my first time posting here despite having had this account for over a year (and knowing this forum existed long before that). Not really sure why I never joined before now, but I guess this time I figured, "this is like my third or fourth time getting back into Eva after thinking I had moved on from the series, so why not try to find people to actually talk about/share this renewed obsession interest with this time?" Which, hopefully I'm not too late to the discussion for that lol.

Welcome aboard!
Falling back into old hyperfixations is a tale that I'm all too familiar with myself, the only reason that it hasn't happened for me with Eva is that I never really got out of Eva to begin with xD

Welcome!
I remember the day you created your account. It was a Saturday, two weeks after the movie came out. It was raining and I was driving home after a great night out on the town.
Funny how a simple post ignited so many memories!
Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

Haha well I can tell you from experience, if you ever do end up getting out you'll probably find yourself back here sooner than later lol

Glad I could help you reminisce!

And one last question before I go finally post elsewhere: is there a way to get around the search function telling me that "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words"?

This has always been annoying in our search tool.
Try using asterisks as a wildcard in words that are considered too common. I once gave an example of how to use this wildcard:
