All Singing All Dancing!

Next week a whole new generation are going to watch Evangelion for the first time and finally understand that there is and only ever will be one best girl.


See this face? Get used to it new Evangelion fans!



Seriously tho... I cannot wait for all of the takes! I want to see how the dub rework turned out (queue rage) and HD remastering looks... I get the impression they are going to edit a bunch, which might be worth the rewatch... I'm hyped

... wait a minute.. Netflix haven't released any preview of the new voice actors at all.... I wonder if this is going to drop like a ton of bricks


The best girl is Misato Katsuragi btw.

why cant you just marry asuka and rei simultaneously. you're already committing a crime by waifuing either of them seperately

I don't even dislike Shinji but describing him as a "clean bottle of water" is extremely charitable

There's bare minimum a bunch of tears and some backwash in there

Man, Shinji. It's always weird to talk about the little fella because it feels like there are a lot of caveats to him both in (as a person) and out of universe (as, well, a character).

Anyway, I'm going to rewatch this, but I'm not sure how much I'm going to do this out of nostalgia and more to, like "Well, let's just try to adjust to what newcomers are gonna say about it".

I fully am looking forward to the usual suspects on twitter building up shinji as an uwu soft boy during their first watch and then getting confronted with his shenanigans in EoE

There are going to be people dropping hot takes on Eva who were not alive yet when it first aired, just in case you needed to feel old.

I watched episodes here and there out of order when it was new so I'm really looking forward to sitting down and watching it start to finish, where it all makes sense as a cohesive narrative.

evangelions' message: hey if you just sit on your rear end and don't reach out to people things might get kinda bad for you and everyone

rebuild: oh but if you do reach out every single fear you've had about personal interaction going badly will happen, gently caress you lol

Anno's a cock.

I hate how I legitimately like the story of TV and Movie Eva which is capital G Good but could do with some snagging work done to account for when he was falling apart mentally.

I legitimately fell for his trap of "Maybe Rebuild is the same thing only when [Anno] is in a healthy state of mind" which turned out to be his four three-and-a-phantom movie rant about how he hates nerds (the same ones that gave him all that money to buy all his Tokusatsu poo poo btw).

Yinlock posted:

Yeah, she's as culpable as anyone in on that level of the tang conspiracy.

3.0 had great animation and music, but it made little to no sense. If Anno really wanted to own the otakus, he should have aged up the characters. A bitter, battle-hardened Asuka in her late 20's would have been dope.

It at least had that going for it throughout.
