Re: Release Date: January 23, 2021

Man, it only took like, almost a decade, but here we are. XD

Now all I hope for is a satisfying conclusion and for it to not end up anticlimactic or Eva's equivalent to Matrix Revolutions.

Re: The elephant in the room in the shape of Eva Unit 01

Really hope Unit 01 gets to fight again. Seriously, one of the most iconic creations in all of anime and sci-fi for that matter, the destroyer of worlds, one of the very lynchpins as to the entire overarching plan and themes of the story, and now it's reduced to little more than the battery for a st...

Re: Khara's lack of marketing of 3.0+1.0: a lack of respect?

Honestly, at this point I just want this saga to end already. It's been close to a decade since the previous film ended on one of the biggest downers ever, and every year that goes by without even a hint at when the conclusion comes out makes it even harder to swallow. Especially given that I myself...

Re: Q sucks and Anno hates you [split]

It more has to do with the fact that Anno decided to frame Shinji's act of saving Rei as the worst possible decision he could have made, as he was basically choosing an escapist fantasy with his waifu over accepting reality by letting her die. His decision caused Third Impact to start after all, and...

Re: Q sucks and Anno hates you [split]

I'd like to believe you guys, but given just how many rewrites and the like were involved in 3.33's production, along with Anno's re-emerged depression during its development, I can only come to the conclusion that he did indeed retcon what happened in 2.22's ending and him saving Rei did indeed lea...

Re: Q sucks and Anno hates you [split]

Honestly, you guys haven't really done much to instill hope in me that the next film is gonna do much other than continue to crap all over characters like Rei in order to push the whole anti-escapism message the series is known for. Also, you guys all seem really, really dead set on the idea that Ka...

Pretty much. It's why I realized just how foolish I was to have ever gotten invested in Shinji and Rei's relationship in the second Rebuild saga, and why wanting the latter to have any sort of development or chance at life is completely wrongheaded.After all, Anno despises her because she represents...

Late reply, but here goes. Honestly ErgoProxy, what you said sounds eerily like the whole "let's see you do better" argument when you bring up writing fanfiction as a way for me to vent. And to be perfectly frank, said fanfic doesn't really change the fact that the actual canon work is sti...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

I think Kaowru is guilt-tripping Shinji over things he probably didn't even do in order to better manipulate him into pulling the spears out of Lilith. Maybe, but the movie and the related media constantly portrays Kaworu as being such a selfless and loving figure to Shinji that I have a hard time ...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

After all it's a story of a kid who was living a relatively normal life in quite a positive setting, and then he voluntarily chose to trade it for the Japanese equivalent of Mordor. Can I just say that this is precisely one of the reasons 3.33 felt so mean spirited to me, and why I have a hard time...

Split from this thread . -Reichu I'm still really surprised at how much you guys are optimistic for what will happen to Shinji in the next film. Don't get me wrong, I too want to see him find some measure of closure and peace. But this kid is responsible for an event that killed off millions of peo...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

You sure about that? Cause I thought that it was agreed that Anno views Rei as a symbol for escapism, and Anno despises escapism than anything else in the world. So I wouldn't be surprised if he just drops a bridge on her and forces Shinji to be with someone else purely because Rei means choosing an...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Rei not being higher is kind of depressing to me, all things considered. Guess Anno's ploy to tear down Rei in 3.33 to get people to view her like he does (creepy and unsympathetic) while getting people to instead like the two he prefers way more and considers far more worthy of being with Shinji wo...

Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing a late Fall release such as in November or December. Though I wouldn't be surprised if, to my chagrin, it's pushed all the way back to Summer 2021 all because of the Olympics.

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

Furthermore, it's necessary to see if Anno will use Shinji's guilt in a literal sense (responsibility for the death of human beings) or in a metaphorical sense for fandom, in the sense that killing humanity is Anno's way to show concretely a mistake at the public beyond the fourth wall. The catastr...

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

Wonder how exactly that message is gonna work though, considering just how far gone Shinji is, what with him screwing things over for billions of people. Like, what he's done and the lives lost as a result of him aren't exactly something one can just brush aside. I know you guys have speculated that...

What's so wrong with Homura from Madoka Magica exactly?

Yeah, I still don't know.

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...
