i will always have a certain fondness for 3.0 because someone (fuyutsuki) finally sat shinji down and explained what was going on to him. no one ever told him poo poo! orders and lies were all he ever got from anyone.

I've never seen any real evidence that Anno "hates his fans"/nerds in general inherently.

Nope



I think it comes from the feeling that he received hate mail and death threats for the TV Eva Ending and was like "Well gently caress, let's go for a ride fanboys".

To the tune of Komm Suisser Töd:
Everyone dies Everyone Dies EVERYONE DIES

And then he posted screenshots of the emails.

And then he derided fans for not getting the meaning he was trying to convey and instead going "Oh wow Waifu Rei so mysterious and fragile" or "BAKA SHINJI MAN UP AND PILOT EVA" or "Duuuude Kaji has like a golden dick I would TOTALLY bang Asuka if I was him guy is a player! "

Watching this show for the first time was an interesting experience when you have also inadvertently and semi-consciously absorbed ~20 years of Discourse about the show and you realize you already have deeply ingrained impressions of the characters, the fanbase, the creator, and the creator's relationship to the fanbase.

I in particular appreciated this because I too had no idea what the gently caress happened in the original series. In fact they do the same thing in the first movie with Misato just showing Shinji Lillith to show him why they're doing anything.

I don't really get the negativity toward the rebuild movies but I guess that's because it was billed to me as "Eva but they changed all the rules" and considering I had watched the original like, ten years before seeing it I was more on board.

Most of the negativity that I've seen personally is how the 3rd rebuild movie just throws you into the middle of a new plot halfway through and expects you to keep up with no real way to do so. Personally I liked it as a 3rd act, as it wouldn't be Eva without Shinji gettin dunked on repeatedly, and it made me like Kaworu a lot more than I used to, but with how long the wait for the 4th has become my impatience makes rewatching the 3rd a huge beating.

In any case, the music for Rebuild is killer and I love it dearly.

3.0 rebuild was one of those experiences where i legit could not predict anything that was going to happen next from moment to moment.

It at least had that going for it throughout.

I watched 3.0 in a legit theater surrounded by cosplayers. It was genuinely my most memorable cinematic experience; there's some absolutely jawdropping scenes at that resolution.

it's astounding how insanely far shinji had to go to get even the most basic questions answered in that movie

everyone just loving hates him but refuses to tell him why, ever

up to and including Misato who iirc was actively cheering him on when he did The Thing

rebuild isn't bad but 3.0 casts a massive shadow on the entire thing

also it feels like anno falling back into bad habits more than anything. have no idea where to take the plot? shoot metaphors at the screen like a cloud of ink and run away

Rebuild 3.0 Shinji is like a teenage boy dealing with an angry girlfriend.

"Wait why do you hate me?"
'YOU hosed IT ALL UP YOU SELFISH gently caress'
"Wh-what did I do?!"
'WHAT DIDN'T YOU DO!?'

Alternately, the end of R2.0 is represents Shinji losing his virginity, and all of R3.0 is his draling with the psychosexual fallout and emotions surrounding it.

I don't like 3.0 because I think it misses the human scale of the series even more than 1.0 and 2.0. There are some really good scenes and reveals, but they don't have as much to contrast against.

Also I thought there was too much purple and the only good fight scene was the space intro, even if it was verging on wacky Eva hijinks type fan fiction.

My secret shameful wish is that 4.0 is just the classroom kids wondering why Shinji isn't at school today for two hours.
