Why Rei is awesome

This is a comment I wrote on Reddit when questioned why Rei was listed alongside Shinji as my favorite characters. I felt like it was good enough for its own post, and put it here as well. I realize not everyone will share this opinion, and my goal isn't to change your mind necessarily, just to shar...

Re: Rebuilds being a continuation of EoE?

Realize I'm late to this, but... I explain my thoughts on this quite a bit here: https://forum.evageeks.org/thread/19811/Evangelions-5-part-Structure/ I think the main Eva merchandise are all sequels, but less in a direct "Eva 2" kind of way and more in an abstract, fractured sense, which ...

Re: Evangelion's 5-part Structure

Re: Evangelion's 5-part Structure

Hi, thanks for responding! I've felt the same concern at times. Here are some thoughts on it. So, I think we all agree Evangelion is a metaphor for dealing with depression. But depression isn't some dragon you slay, one-and-done, lesson learned, happy ending. It's a problem you struggle with your wh...

Evangelion's Franchise Structure

(This post is frequently edited and updated.) Hello everyone, first time here, pleasure to meet you all. Right off the bat, here's a list I made of all the main Eva media produced by the original creators. There is a colossal amount of Eva media, but I figure if there is a "canon" it is th...
