Love how you ignored how I mentioned that every dub in every country ever makes changes. I've never seen anyone but English Anime fans get so torn up about it however.
AWL still didn't work on the Rebuilds either so I don't see why she's in your conversation about why the cast deserved to be changed. Keep in mind, also, Khara didn't do this with any other redub of NGE and many of them got to keep their original casts, even those who also made a lot of changes in their dubs. You have a lot of biases here and it's kind of weird.
Didn't address the fact the dubs aren't literal 1 for 1 translations because that's obvious. Problem is when dubs screw up the intention of work which the ADV dub did often, and while Funimation was better, still took some odd liberties that screwed up the first dub of 3.0.
Didn't mention that AWL wasn't in Rebuild because I know, I don't have a vendetta against her, I just don't agree with her Eva takes. I just don't think either dub is very good. English Anime fans get caught up in this because we suffered through so many censored garbage dubs in the early days of the fandom. Ever heard of 4Kids?
If having a preference for which dub I like is weird, I don't know what to tell you. What I find weird is it was so hard to find anyone who liked the ADV dub on the internet before 2019, but then it seemingly got raised to the same level of the Cowboy Bebop dub after the Netflix version. It's like the Star Wars prequels, nobody had anything nice to say about them until Disney got involved. Then the internet started treating the prequels as the work of an incredible Autor.
