It's an alternate ending.

>>
>>116230532
Well, there is more, but there might be other reasons for the red water all over the place. I am sort of just denying it.
>>
>>116230532
At best, Kaworu can make it a self contained loop, but I don't think there's anything that definitively connects it to NGE. It's at the point right now where you cannot say it's a sequel with any certainty and the only good option is to just wait and see what happens.

>>116230579
> there might be other reasons for the red water all over the place
Gee, if only there were a convenient scene in 2.22 to explain why the oceans were red. Man, wouldn't that just be amazing?
>>
>>116230679
It's been a while, I'm sorry. What was the reason?
>>
>>116230714
Second Impact turned the waters red. Kaji explicitly tells you this in 2.22 when they go visit the aquarium, which is set up in order to purify the water.

The biggest problem with people who think it's definitively a sequel and blindly believe that the chart is true is that they don't fucking think about what is explicitly in the movies themselves; they just take the pretty picture's word for it and move on.

>Eva is a story of repetition

>>116230818
Surely if Rebuild is a reboot it would also have blue water. The red water if anything kinda hints that this is a different time/world than the original.
>>
>>116231196
Exactly. If the timelines is looping around back to the start, then that would mean everything would be the same as the start of NGE. You would have blue water, you wouldn't have all that vegetation and shit people point out at the beginning of 1.11, and all of the inconsistencies wouldn't be there either.

People want to bullshit that it's a loop, but also that things changed because reasons. They want a catch-all theory that explains everything but can't be disproven. The most commonly used one is the idea that Shinji became a god, so then he just decided to keep certain geographic elements the same while resetting everything else for no fucking reason, but this both misrepresents the control Shinji had in Instrumentality - he really just had the option to continue it or abort - and begs the question as a theory, presupposing that it's a sequel as its premise.
>>
>>116231416
Oh I misunderstood.

I don't believe it's a loop at all. I am kinda hoping that rebuild takes place after End of Evangelion though. Unfortunately Doubt that will be the case since they were labelled as reboots and not sequels.
>>
>>116231739
There are issues with that too. If you think Rebuild takes place just a few years after NGE, that's simply impossible as you cannot rebuild the world and all the damage done to it in that small an amount of time. The geofront itself was completely uprooted and Lilith is completely out of action. We know that the geography of Japan is the same as in NGE, and that Tokyo-3 is in the same spot as NGE, so that would require far too much construction and effort to get everything back in place so soon.

If you believe it's several hundred or thousands of years afterwards, that requires all events to repeat again for no reason, everyone to reincarnate into themselves again, for the geography of everything to return to exactly as it was pre-NGE, and for everyone to contribute to putting shit like the Black Moon back in place for no fucking reason. It's just really absurd.
>>
>>116232068
>It's just really absurd.
You just summarized this entire series
>>
>>116232068
Yeah, that's true. I just want Rebuild to be unrelated to the original which I loved though.

Even if they had to pull some bullshit like Shinji/Yui rebuilding the world and rejecting instrumentality I'd accept it at this point because of what a dissapointment 3.33 was for me.
>>
Reminder that NGE ends with everyone still tanged for a reason.
>>
>>116232312
If you want it to be unrelated to the original, then why do you want it to chronologically take place after EoE, in the same timeline?

There's a simple thing Japan does with a lot of series; they create Alternate Universe continuations. It's basically just a thing authors do when they want to continue using the same characters and make money off of them without messing with the original series. This allows them to continue writing new scenarios for characters while keeping the original fans happy because it doesn't affect or potentially ruin the original.

NGE already has a history of AU spinoffs with Angelic Days, Raising Project, Campus Apocalypse, and so on. Rebuild is simply just another AU, a separate continuity and an excuse to reuse the same old characters in new scenarios.

No, it's just a different outcome. Just accept it and move on. Original ending is simply Shinji getting congratulated and nobody gets untanged. Not even him. Humanity is stuck in limbo which lets Anno do what he wants in his sequel.

>>116232879
Seemingly remaking a series in movie-form 11 years after the anime finished airing, and then revealing that the films were sequels all along only with the final film in the franchise ~8 years after the first film was released isn't the most unoriginal twist there is.

>>116232967

Anno already covered this. He confirmed only 25' is that, 26' is not, the official Gainax website specifically says is ANOTHER outcome.

The original and canon ending is episode 26. Nobody gets out of Instrumentality in canon.

After we finished the tv series, we draw "The Theatrical Version Evangelion", a story with an alternate/another outcome/ending*.

Hint: because he succeeded in NGE. He's with Yui as a huge hint for you.

Yes, they arrive at different climaxes in that EoE has One More Final, which isn't included in 25 and 26. They also show differing events, as one shows the perspective inside characters minds' while the other shows the events of the real world.

That's funny, trying to insult Rei. Rei was no puppet, like she herself pointed out. She did what she wanted to do.

Might as well want to say that Asuka remained NERV's and an unloved puppet to the end too.
Maybe that Kaworu was just another dead faggot angel humanity rid itself of in the end.
Why not also go the whole mile, that Misato was nothing more than a puppet the whole time, and that Ritsuko was little more than Gendo's sex toy?

Yes, she was also a puppet. The "agenda" she had going for her was merely Gendo's agenda, and then she saw through his bullshit and betrayed him. That's the whole point of her being called a "doll" and acting as Gendo's roll dog until Rei III came along.
I'll give you credit for being somewhat right, though. Rei III certainly had her own agenda.
>>
>>116234640
You know, we, and everyone else who is critical do have self-awareness and do have patience.

That's why we don't compare what is effectively an "alternative/additive ending" that comes after 26 full episodes that are entirely self-contained, with a critical third part in a movie series.

3.0 was not an ending. It does not complete, fulfill or create characters that are good, and no matter at how you look at it, what 3.0 did was a step back.

3.0 leaves Rebuild to be lesser than it should have been, and what exactly can 3.0+1.0 do about that again?
EoE's only job is to finish up already finished characters. To add to greatness.

3.0+1.0 isn't adding to greatness.

Not in NGE. Even in EoE, she's still a puppet until the end (remember that using Asuka's mother is how NERV use Asuka as a puppet), and it's technically Rei and Shinji that save her ass as usual.

>Sure, why not.
Why not indeed.

>Yes, she was also a puppet. The "agenda" she had going for her was merely Gendo's agenda, and then she saw through his bullshit and betrayed him.
Not true, because that's a contradiction. Rei's agenda was always her own, and their agendas coincided in the beginning but quickly diverges. That's precisely why Rei doesn't hesitate at all to do what she wants.

>That's the whole point of her being called a "doll" and acting as Gendo's roll dog until Rei III came along.
Actually, the point of calling Rei a doll is to highlight Asuka's insecurities. The show, or the narrative never calls Rei a doll. It's just Asuka that gets outed by the narrative, and we get to know why later, it's because Asuka is a doll herself. She's just projecting.

Rei III is only different from Rei II insofar their memories differ somewhat. Plus the whole idea that it's a new body.

I don't know how some people still refuse to believe it even when the whole 'endless repetition' theme as been shoehorned into EVA since ever.

>repetition till you get things right.
Everything was right before this "Rebuild" pile of shit. Things went wrong precisely with Rebuild.
>>
>>116235305
Because the original EVA or EoE never had that theme whatsoever. Not a single mention, not one foreshadowing nor one plot element regarding loops. The original EVA bases itself completely on the idea that it's happening linearly, once. That gives it it's power. That's what makes it feel real, what connects it to the real world for the viewer.

The manga only recently introduced it as a complete asspull near it's ending, with the manga being completely free from anything like it before.

When you say "shoehorned", you're more right than you know.

That said, it is of course right that "new EVA" includes loops in some form. I consider it a terrible thing, but of course some waifufags and husbandofags (kaworufags mostly) think it's fantastic since it benefits them directly and their fantasies.

As a gut-feeling, I find it likely that Rebuild will expand greatly on looping in the next installation or at least crystallize it more.
It's a terrible feeling, but I've given up on da builds.

I'd actually say that practically everyone in Eva was a puppet to Gendo/Seele until the end.

When do we see Rei ever do what she wants that infringed Gendo's orders? Aside from blowing herself up in episode 23, I can only recall her being obedient.

>Actually, the point of calling Rei a doll is to highlight Asuka's insecurities
I can attest to that.
>The show, or the narrative never calls Rei a doll
But it is implied, with how she's so obedient to Gendo. There's also the scene where she and Asuka were in the elevator and she admitted that she would even die for him. Afterwards is when Rei slowly begins to break away from the ideal that she's Gendo's puppet, but Rei III's arrival is where it really becomes evident.

Reposting from another thread

I had a dream last night that Rei was pregnant with what basically amounted to the antichrist which was apparently so terrifying that Kaworu used the exact word "abomination" to describe it.

Another anon told me that it was Anno telepathically communicating the plot of 3.0+1.0 to me.

>I'd actually say that practically everyone in Eva was a puppet to Gendo/Seele until the end.
Nah, because there's people who oppose him, or are completely aware of his shenanigans and actually consider that they are under control. That frees them from puppet-status. Some like Asuka never even think that far and just do his bidding until she goes crazy or dies.

>if it was, Rei wouldn't have been so loyal to Gendo nor would she had followed his commands.
Two things, Rei doesn't always follow his commands or do as he says. She does her own thing, even when Gendo might have reservations. Take pic related. Gendo does NOT approve of what Rei is doing.

The second, why wouldn't Rei be loyal or follow his commands? It benefits her, it benefits him, it benefits Shinji, Asuka, well literally everyone. Except the Angels of course, but who gives a fuck about them, they're enemies. Keeps them alive for another day.

However Rei dictates how she wants that done, and when Gendo is not interested in her any more or what she thinks is right, she's just going to abandon him and do what she wants.

>When do they diverge?
Since the beginning technically, as Rei points out to Asuka in the earlier episodes that she's not as favored as she implies, and later when she has to reconsider her relationships.
Rei isn't all for Gendo, remember it takes Gendo burning himself and proving that he cares at least somewhat for Rei for Rei to care.

>When do we see Rei ever do what she wants that infringed Gendo's orders? Aside from blowing herself up in episode 23, I can only recall her being obedient.
Pic related. But like you say, Rei is fairly obedient, but that example alone proves she's not just following orders.

cont
>>
>>116235949
>But it is implied, with how she's so obedient to Gendo.
It's not implied. It's perhaps misunderstood. Because like you see yourself, Rei can reject Gendo or do as she wants as she pleases. Are you surprised that Rei would die if ordered to? 19 and 23 proves that she needs doesn't even need orders to do that, and would even like to do so even if it's against orders.

Hell the whole thing about Rei is that she's aware of what she can do, that is to say, DIE and come back. Asuka doesn't understand Rei. She never has, and never will over the course of the series. Even Rei has issues understanding herself completely. So Asuka takes Rei's autism and misinterprets it as mere obedience.

All I got when I saw it: individuality is painful, but accepting the pain makes it worthwhile. Same with interactions with people.
Dealing with pain is necessary for adulthood, shinji basically became an adult at that point. As did Asuka I guess based on the last two episodes but it's never confirmed.
People hide their true selves to avoid being hurt, like Pirandelli masks (took Italian in high school)... and I think that is it from my first time. Haven't seen EoE in years

2. Anyone can return, we just only ever see 2. We don't know how long it takes or who all comes back.
3. If you were going to assume that only Shinji returns, then nobody else would exist, and if you think Rebuild is a continuation of EoE, then only Shinji would remain and everyone else would have new names and shit.
>>
>>116239051
I'm neither of those, but if Anno wanted to do a sequel, it doesn't mean he's doing a good job of it, or that the sequel he made is good.

You do seem to have some insight into Evangelion, and I'd like for you to respond and be honest:

Isn't Anno appropriating his most famous IP to merely pander a specific otaku vision of it? That seems to be the purpose of these new Rebuild movies. He is looking at his own work, then at his own interests as a "fan", and then changing the canon to suit that.

It's not that he's making a simple sequel or remake that does the characters and setting he made justice, because as I'm sure you can tell Rebuild does some of them grave injustices.

Since I'm sure you know of Anno's sensibilities, what he praises about his own work, directly what he likes, doesn't this add up perfectly? Don't limit this to Anno, I'm sure I've seen the others like Tsurumaki share that kind of sensibility.

I think that the new films are severly lacking in almost every aspect that made the original good, however, as time passes not only it starts to show how the movies dont turn exactly how Anno was thinking at the beggining (sorry to beat the Ohtsuki horse again, but remember when he said that this time there wouldnt be any texts on screen since that was SO 90´s?, Anno came out later saying that he realized they werent doing eva right if they werent doing what eva was...), but japanese fans have started saying the words "eva cant be done today" because of things like how censored EoE was last month on tv, and even the new films had cuts( even fanservice cuts!), and even if Anno has (supossedly) the final say on production, his own ideas were discarded when they confronted Ohtsuki, who does want make eva as commercial as possible, and the least dangerous as well, (he said that Anno would never do a sex scene with him around), but this was until Anno got creative control from the third film on(or so he says now).

Personally, the pandering aspect was mostly true with the second film in my opinion and it was on purpose to convey something(but it couldnt since the movie is a mess), and Ill tell you what I really think:

Anno is doing whatever shit he is doing, but he doesnt want to cater to any specific "Otaku" here is the proof: He cares so much little about..lets say my opinion of the film, that he prefers to satisfy his money-hungry friend rather than to fight with him and make a film I can enjoy more.

I also found somewhat stupid to call pandering the Shinji and Kaworu interaction in 3.0, I mean, all those who went with "FEELZ" images about not having an angel husbando like Kaworu will never have a friend that cares that much for them if they start calling him gay. But of course, some people here are too Alpha to have any male friends I suppose...
>>
>>116244757
Some people are trying to make the argument that EOE is no longer canon, so the series officially ends with episode 26 of NGE which means that everyone is technically in instrumentality still, from which the Rebuilds could spring I suppose.

For the most part it just sounds like people are reading way too much into very sparse amounts of information and trying to get everyone to jump on board the hype train.
>>
>>116245865
Not to mention the fact that the Eva site changes so fucking often that it's completely unreliable for any information about what's coming up. They've had release dates and now wrong titles up many times in the past.
>>
>>116245148
>here is the proof: He cares so much little about..lets say my opinion of the film, that he prefers to satisfy his money-hungry friend rather than to fight with him and make a film I can enjoy more.

This isn't proof. It's conjecture. The proof is in the pudding, so to speak. It's an objective truth that the discrepancy between Rebuild and NGE consistently favor a specific otaku viewpoint.

Every plot point, moment and revelation has only one and one purpose thus far. Every bit about the auxilliary characters, them being Misato, Rei, Asuka, Kaworu etc... tell you a positive thing or a negative thing, especially through the lens of otaku.

I do not believe Ohtsuki has anything to do with this. He does not write the movie, nor does he own it. He is a producer and might have influence, but it is entirely unreasonable to believe that Ohtsuki is somehow responsible for every single thing in these movies.

Hideaki Anno is the man to credit and criticize, he is listed as the writer and director. Not Ohtsuki.

Cutting to the chase for a concrete example, how do you explain the discrepancy of the portrayals of the characters? Japanese fans on day one of the release of 3.0 were pointing this out, and still are.
Consider the two major female characters, Asuka and Rei. Forget Kaworu for a moment.

How do you explain that Asuka is at every turn glorified and cleansed of flaws and negative traits the original had, while Rei is consistently played down as a weaker version of the original? Rebuild Rei knows nothing, does nothing, has a lesser Evangelion and is in a word, a travesty. On the opposite end, Asuka is far more involved in the higher level plot than ever before, gets lots of fanservice and flattering scenes.

Now look at what Anno thinks of these two, before Rebuild. He cites Asuka as his favorite, and claims no emotional attachment to Rei and is disappointed whenever she is brought up.
There is a consistency. There are far more.

The entire loop/sequel theory is just a take on the four worlds (sometimes five worlds) within Kabbalah spirituality. Making the Eva-verse not a series of loops or alternate dimensions, but reincarnations of previous worlds, where the characters change, or learn from outcomes of their previous lives in some way.

Yamashita refers to Anima as the "third world" in this retrospect, and Anno had informed Yamashita some important details regarding Eva's future, before 1.0 was in production.

Yeah, I believe it was Tsurumaki who said that crap, not Anno himself. And Tsurumaki doesn't give a single shit about anything as long as it involves pandering in some way or form.

Anno on the other hand isn't exactly like that. While the symbolism isn't all too deep, it does have offer ties and clues pertaining to the narrative development. Moreso in the Rebuilds then the EoE or the show.
>>
>>116246472
>Anno on the other hand isn't exactly like that.
Which you have absolutely zero source or citation for.

I think you're just a case of someone finding patterns and answers where there are non. You've constructed this lie that the Rebuilds and Evangelion is at the heart a perfect respectation of religious mythos, and not just one but multiple ranging from gnosticism, orthodox judaism and now the Kabbalah.

The truth is that everything in these movies has no consistent link with any of the above, save for exploiting the aesthetics. There is a great sense of mystery in religion, and by tapping into the aesthetics they replicate that mystery.

In a sense, they even validate the work (for some) because they have a belief in said religion or at least an interest.

To claim any sort of consistent link or connection with these religions, you would have to borrow from all of them, even parts which contradict. You'd literally just be picking concepts, symbols and names that match, and you know why that is?

Because that is what the people making Evangelion has done, they paid no attention to following the plot, and everything in these movies, in drafts and what went on in the original, carries no link to religion besides aesthetic.

if you want my opinion, you need to be more specific, I mean, I dont know if you are talking about the movies in general or 3.0, as you seem to talking about 2.0, and Im referring to this.

In the series: Asuka can be considered as a character with some flaws and traits, just the same as Rei, Shinji, Gendou, Misato and everyone, because even if one can consider it was done in an unsuccesful way, the objective of the staf was to portray reailistic characters that have flaws and negative traits like any human being, Rei wasnt perfect in any sense of course, that was on the minds of people who idealized the character in an unrealistic way, she didnt do that much in the series either past certain point because she only was a plot device for Shinji and Gendou´s relationship, all her character arc was effectively rebooted after episode 6, and she only obeyed orders from that point on until the character was revealed to be completely irrelevant and not even human, more so, expendable, this is why Rei3 is such a contradicting character, she is portrayed in the series as being completely different from Rei2, but in the movie, she finally seems to have more in common with Rei 2 that the looks of it.

Now, in the movies: Im gonna have to side witth the people that consider that 2.0 did feed to some people´s horses, I mean, not only Asuka is pretty much free of any realistic flaw, in the proccess she also is unrealistically idealized in comparison of the series on regards to her relationship with Shinji, like, all the movie is centered in how this girls are desperate to win this kids attention to an extent that seems a joke on the series, and Rei, well, she is completely different from the series, the most simple way to describe the character in 2.0 is "Rei is perfect, Rei cares for you even if you dont know, Rei wouldnt get jealous of other girls and their relationship with you (something that Asuka does), and she will cut herself to cook for you, she is pure,

The most unrealistic thing about Rei 2 is that she can bew saved after being eaten by an Angel, now, that said, and also with what I wrote in my earlier (double)post, I cant really see how someone would consider in any way that the movie doesnt pander really hard at everyone, but more so at "Rei fans" that cant see that for some strange reason Rei is a goddess of goodness incarnate and that they keep victimizing even after saying that "SHE WON THE SHINJIBOWL", and Asuka has it a lot worse in that film and I havent see anyone going on about it like with Rei in 3.0. Yes 2.0 did pander hard.

Now in 3.0 Rei actually has more screentime than Asuka, who we only seen fighting and being mean with Shinji, and in all this time she acts more in character with the series than with 2.0, thats good in my book.

But if you were talking about Rei in 3.0, I dont get it either, weaker? She is not much worse than the original Rei 3, does nothing? she did more than Rei 2 in 2.0 by helping Gendou in his plan and getting Shinji. Lesser Eva? that must be joke right?, an eva with the body of a god that can regenerate compared to a prototype that was always being injured in the original and in the other movies.

I cant explain something I dont understand, why it must matter to me that Rei is however she is?, or Asuka?, If the characters are as uninterestingly idealised as in 2.0, I certainly dont give a damn whatever happens to them

One more Final isn't canon. Asuka never returned.

Shut the fuck up.

>>116247908
No one said its a sequel, themost similar thing is that a couple days ago Anno talked a little about how originally they were going to do a sequel to EoE, but didnt end up happening, some aspects of the idea have been obviously implemented in the actual setting of the new movies

Because Shinji made that happen, and Shinji isn't human in Rebuild.
>>
i always post in eva threads because i've devoted more time of my life to this series than pretty much anything else, but i'm just too fucking tired

has anyone else started to lose the flame of passion for arguing about eva?
>>
>>116248668
The majority just want to yell about people liking what they don't like or general waifus lately, and there's nothing fun about that. Sometimes there are pretty nice threads, though.
>>
>>116248668
I did with Rebuild. You can't have a long-lasting decent discussion about it without opinions and waifushit wars ruining every thread.
>>
How about Shinji went crazy and rebooted the world, but not perfectly. So thing happenes again, but a bit different this time?
>>
>>116231196
They could have just thought that red water looks cool. That's not s devising factor that it's a sequel.

>The most commonly used one is the idea that Shinji became a god, so then he just decided to keep certain geographic elements the same while resetting everything else for no fucking reason, but this both misrepresents the control Shinji had in Instrumentality - he really just had the option to continue it or abort - and begs the question as a theory, presupposing that it's a sequel as its premise.
>>
>>116248754
I mean, I think the theories and speculation about Rebuild are interesting, but what always happens is there's 10-11 people in a thread who seriously want to discuss it, and the rest are newfag retards who can't understand EoE without that fucking image. It's kind of sad, really, but it makes me excited for FINAL, just because it'll be something NEW to argue about.

But i know i'm going to come back tomorrow and read the thread after it's 404'd
>>
>>116248858
High chance it's this. Rebuild's Shinji has either become some kind of FAR-tier being after 2.0 or was a FAR seed from the beginning. Place him in an Eva and he can start an impact out of sheer will, his wish partially and potentially determining the outcomes of the said impact. The Final movie will probably have him magically fixing earth's fucked ecosystem or something.
>>
>>116249097
The problem is you have to assume a hell of a lot just to make that seem plausible. It's something to consider, but as a theory it holds very little ground.
>>
I just thought I'd ask here. I want to buy EoE on DVD and I was wondering which edition I should buy. Also are there plans for a new release of EoE?
>>
>>116249179
Not really. They tell you his awakening was written and predicted from the Dead Sea Scrolls in the first movie. That alone is a huge red flag answer for angel or FAR seed.
>>
>>116249248
Christ, this is what I'm talking about. These people are so fucking stupid and they can't do anything on their own.

Why did you not just google that? I know for a fact there's TWO threads on EvaGeeks that go into specific detail about the differences between each release of Eva
>>
>>116232913
Anno will log into Adeptus Evangelion under a meta name and claim that he is running an Eva RPG and is having trouble concluding his campaign. He'll apologize for his English and say that his players are sort of losing interest and that he would like for the conclusion to have an emotional impact.
He'll also ask what is the general opinion about, um, gay sex in games and how to implement it in a non-comedic way.

>>116233813
He killed himself because he knew he wouldnt resist the urge and would end up watching the movie he knows is gonna be shit

What the fuck is with the numbering system? Is it just pretentious shit or does it mean something?
>>
>>116249502
Wrong guy, dipshit.

>>116249248
Why the fuck would you even want EoE on DVD? It looks like shit, and the only way to get it is secondhand.
>>
why didnt they just get three reis to pilot three evas
>>
>>116249576
Rei doesn't have a parent and the evas function better when they have a mentally unstable child pilot controlling the souls of their deceased mothers.

My own from a week ago:

Conference room with bright halogen lights. Everything is pale green or flat white. We've just moved from our old office into a new facility. My boss is talking, me and another two or three people are doing the listening part.
"With this new facility and the recent increase in our budget, I'll see to it that any reasonable desire the pilots express is taken care of.", the boss man says.
"Director? Sir?", I get his attention, "In that case, my desire is to become a comedian. And not an Eva pilot."

Later that week a news reporter came to the facility to make a story about my workplace. He saw me just as I was putting on a plugsuit. I didn't become a comedian after all.

Can anyone actually form a real argument as to why the Rebuilds are bad? The only reason I can imagine why people would hate it so much is a misplaced sense of "it's not as deep". Nigger, the characters have already been examined to fuck and back, why does choosing not to do it again make Rebuild shit?

It honestly just seems like people think it's bad because other people say it is.
>>
>>116250353
>It honestly just seems like people think it's bad because other people say it is.
That is a big reason. Other reasons: people wanted NGE in HD, people don't understand the narrative structure of Rebuild, or people or pissed because their waifu got shit on. Those are the primary reasons for most of the hate.
>>
Oh I was about to make a thread on this so I guess I can just post it here:

What exactly was the ending of EoE?
Is it why the series gets praised so much?

I didnt feel any closure or joy that the series was wrapped up, it just kinda felt like a shitty drop off.
