Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

What's so wrong with Homura from Madoka Magica exactly? For that matter if the audience is supposed to be placed in Shinji's shoes and he is the main character of the story and the one whose development is the most important, why wouldn't the viewer buy into the character of Kaworu, given his strong...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

Yeah, I still don't know. Again, the next film has a lot of ground to cover, and Asuka's relationship with Shinji just hasn't been focused on as much over these past films, and especially not when compared to how it was built up in the original. Why waste screen time on trying to establish a romanti...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

Well hey, you gotta leave things vague given that it's only a teaser for the full movie. And I'd much rather have a straightforward narrative that is well executed as oppose to something that subverts expectations at the cost of narrative cohesion. Though, I'd be lying if these first ten minutes did...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

Honestly, and at the risk of being ridiculed around these here parts, I still feel that there needs to be some sort of followup and closure regarding his relationship with Rei, as that one has been one of the main cores of the Rebuild storyline, as opposed to his relationship with Asuka in the origi...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Seriously, so many other franchises have continued onwards, and the world has seen so many changes and the like, yet Anno and co still have yet to wrap up the extremely bitter finale of 3.0. That's what really gets me, and has made the whole thing out to be a gigantic and bitter joke to me. I seriou...

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

Check Kaworu and you'll see you are wrong Kaworu by the way is not weak, is actually one of the strongest characters in the film (but yeah he is not a regular guy ) His will is what made Shinji still live despite the punishment collar put on the hero by WILLE for his crime against humanity. Yet sai...

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

I think the ending of 3.0 is very positive to be honest, it makes me feel good. I have absolutely no idea how you could feel that way, given how Shinji is pretty much screwed. He unknowingly killed billions because he tried to save someone he cared about, which failed as well, got one of his other ...

Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

Man, being someone who was really invested in seeing Shinji and Rei's relationship develop in this series, be it romantic or sibling, I hate the fact that Anno decided to frame it in such a negative light in 3.0 simply because he sees it as a metaphor for escapism, and we all know how much he despis...

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

Honestly, I just want this whole saga to be wrapped up with soon. Anno has dragged us along for almost an entire decade, leaving us with an incredibly dour and depressing note with 3.0's ending, with nothing to show for it while he goes off and works on other projects that he obviously is more passi...

Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

Are we sure that the SDAT represents him withdrawing from everything like in the original series? Cause when he threw it away in 2.0, he was very much shown to be at his lowest point, and ironically withdrew himself from everything soon afterwards. If anything, the player seems to more represent som...

I gotta say, these are the kind of progress updates I was looking for. :D Also, the whole thing with the motion capture tech makes me suspect that the fight against the MP-EVAs in Final is gonna look something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8GGwgI2vGU Replace pole with spear. :tongue:

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

It really depends of what Anno has in store. From what I've seen, she seems to be taking over the role that Misato had in EoE; the "rescuer that attempts to get him to man up and take action" person. Now that doesn't mean she's gonna die, but that's just what I've gathered. And for the rec...

Re: Do you think anno regrets making rebuild?

You know, I'm just gonna through this out there, the explanation that 3.0 was made the way it was in order for the audience to be in the same mindset as Shinji I find to be a terrible excuse. That basically means that the narrative was compromised in order to try to force the viewer to feel a certai...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

The Rei / Shinji thing is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the core parts of the Rebuild saga, whereas his relationship with Asuka was one of the cores of the original series. Much of what happens in Rebuild, even in 3.33, revolves around the connection that Rei and Shinji share together. Conversely...

Just great. Apparently, this film may not even be finished before 2020, if the interview is anything to go by. Seriously, talk about wasting almost a decade of the fanbase's lives.

Again, I don't know. I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Shinji and Rei in the second film, as I saw it as less of a "waifu-fantasy" and more of a simple budding connection between two similar individuals in a dark time, and I also saw the latter as becoming more than just a...

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

I don't know. For me, I liked Rei because she was a very tragic and sympathetic character, and her supposed creepy traits only made her all the more tragic to me. As a result, I really enjoyed seeing her character develop in the first two Rebuild films. Then Anno drops a bridge on all that and repla...
