I'm with Jimbo 100% on this one. I was wild about EoTV from the very first time I watched it. I loved EoE too, perhaps even more than TV, but I think the way they compliment each other raises them to even higher levels. What I get by the end of EoE is a sense that everything leading up to this ...

But feel free to continue to tell me how wrong my opinion is for not bowing down and worshiping a show I very clearly love. *sigh* There is no wrong. There's just 'getting' something or not. That might sound like a contradiction, but it's really not. These things depend on a lot of ...

I have to agree with Eva Yojimbo and Merridian. Eva is just on a totally different level to Cowboy Bebop . The show is great fun, and even carries a little bit of sophistication, but it's really nothing when you compare it to what Anno achieves with Eva. I'd actually say it's an unfair c...

Does anyone know if this Ms. Shinakami will be played by Yuko Miyamura?
I've hard about her illness potentially stopping her involvement but I can't imagine any version of Asuka without her voice.

I'd held out on watching this until the nice quality version was released, but I have to say...wow. This looks SO MUCH greater than 1.0, which I feel was bogged down by its faithfulness to the series. So much stuff in there just felt like it was in there for no reason but to appease the fans and...

You're just projecting your hopes and fears onto Rei: In reality, Rei barely talks and isn't that friendly, though she also isn't mean. She barely interacts even with Shinji. The age-old "Otaku who are shy of girls are drawn to Rei because she's so non-threatening because she&#...

I think one of the key themes of Eva is the frustration of being separated from other people. There is always a barrier between people, no matter how much we wish it to go away. We fear others for their difference, and yet we desire for them to understand us. As long as this barrier exists, we will ...

Words I laugh at your despair. Seriously, I like Eva the way it is, but I'm distanced enough from it to realise that the show is still on my shelf and Anno isn't going to teleport it away and replace it with the new movies. It doesn't matter if Anno makes changes in a new, disconnected ...

MAL is only an indicator of US taste. Gurren Lagann movie 1 recieved a very limited theatrical release in Japan (which makes sense when you consider that it's a completely unnecessary edit of a very recent show), and I imagine the second will as well. Eva 1.0 debuted at #1 on the charts....

GL movie 2 will get a very (VERY) limited theatrical release and play only to otaku. It would be unwise to premiere it with GL if this is meant to be as big as Eva 01.

Anno has spent the last decade-plus watching people having fun doing all sorts of Eva fan-fics, and wants to join in.


Did you take that from 4chan or was that you?

Either way, hilarious quote.

Another thing to take into account... Anno never intended on making the EoE movie. It was the original 26 episodes, and then because of the hate mails, he made EoE. The Kaworu part was suppose to be as short as the rest of the other angels. The idea might have been in Anno's head from the begin...
