After years of putting it off, I finally watched Neon Genesis Evangelion and the three films of the Rebuild of Evangelion series.

I have two questions about the third film:
Why did the blonde Dr woman who knew about Ikari's plans all along join Misato's rebellion-group? I thought a third/fourth impact was her goal as well?

Where was Misato's boyfriend in the third film? They never established he died in the second one, did they?

Also, is The End of Evangelion worth watching? I was content with the anime ending so I just moved on to the entirely retold story with modern animation but I figure Asuka's eyepatch is explained in it or something?
>>
>>117291130
1 They didn't know shit.
Only parts of it and Gendo was the sole person who knew it all.
2 Rebuilds are garbage, you watch EOE, not rebuilds.
>>
>>117291130
Some will say that EoE is not worth watching. Others, like me, will urge you to deffinitely go and see it. Right now. Why are you still reading this. Go!

Death & Rebirth is completely skippable though.

I do see it come up here and there that original ending is way better and EoE only ruined it. I also know personally 2 people who think that.

>Fifthweel Rei
Lets be honest here.

Yes, it sucks for Rei fans and other fans who expected Anno, Tsurumaki, and the rest of Khara to showcase Rei Ayanami's fantastic character from the original, and do their best to make a new rendition that was on par with the original.

But then look at the rest. They are shallow, fantasy pandered versions of themselves, their entire character is sold on being homosexual and to be marketed as such to an audience who fetishize same sex couples. Their characters are changed at a whim to pander ceaselessly according to Anno and the rest's own fantasies.

If Rei is the fifth wheel, then perhaps she's a wheel that's best left away from the car or wagon. Maybe there's a little bit of dignity in that.

>How does it feel to know Asuka won?
>式波
>「Q」のアヤナミレイ(仮称)

I'll be honest with you. This means you actually lost. There are two characters there. "ayanamirei (tentative name) 'Q' ", both of which are altered versions of the original. Both shallow characters that no longer represent what either Asuka or Rei from NGE was.

That Asukafags ate up Shikinami, and Reifags rejected Rei Q, is proof that Reifags were the only one of the two that actually cared about the character.

Asukafags only cared about it's sex appeal and cliche cute girl / tsundere attitude.

Even Asukafags have rejected Asuka, and proved that they identify more with their fantasy version of Asuka than the real one.

Asuka might have won the pandering and fanservice contest, but Rei won the moral victory.
>>
>>117296846
Wow, you won a moral contest over loving 2d girls, you must be proud
>>
>>117296976
It's nothing to be proud over, which is why you have to wonder how pathetic those who see "Asuka winning" in that picture as a victory are.
You'll also have to wonder how utterly insecure and butthurt they've been, even at Gainax or Khara to create this new fantasy Evangelion where their favorites will be the most popular in a popularity poll.

There's no mystery about 3.0.

It's just Anno and Tsurumaki circlejerking about Kaworu and Asuka and using "mystery" as a smokescreen. That's literally all the timeskip is.

Mwell as a Reifag I can't say that's the case if Shinji doesn't feel attracted to Rei that way. It goes both ways.

That said Rei will make the best girl, wife, world leader and anything nice.

Fucking auto-post. Didn't finish my thought.
Meant to say Shinji needs the harshness of reality to show him those few moments of kindness as moments to be treasured and not taken for granted. To understand that not everything need be hunky-dory. But that he can face pain and still hold out hope for comfort.
With Rei, he's retreating into his safe-zone where he doesn't have to grow up. But Rei is just a kind fantasy who can give him what he WANTS, but is furthest from what he NEEDs.

pff

It's like some weird propaganda thing

"women can't ever be warm, protective or otherwise interested in other people's wellbeing unless they're a mother figure"

Who believes this shit? Don't they EVER take a step outside to meet real girls? I bet the above is propagated by a bunch of betas so used to rejection by the opposite sex that they think it's like this for everyone.

If Shinji wasn't so filled with meh taste, he'd put a ring on Rei's finger if he gets the chance.
>>
>>117302476
From a psychiatrists perspective, that's wrong. The last thing Shinji needs in his situation is more harshness. He needs a bit of care and comfort and a stable, secure enviroment to develop in.
Rei needs the same thing pretty much, along with Asuka.

If Rei is safe, stable, hunky-dory and what not, then she's a perfect partner, not romantic necessarily.

That's what Anno wants you to think. But he's from a generation where things like Gundam's Bright Slap were the norm when dealing with kids like Shinji. But Anno doesn't force the Bright Slap on Shinji. Shinji decides he needs the Bright Slap himself.

But Rei never was comforting lier.
She's the most honest and trustworthy character, she's almost a fembro and has the biggest balls of them all.

Rei could be his best ally and support on his way towards all the harshness of the world.
She's not an overprotective mother of any sort.

He kind of does force the bright slap continuously. Hell he gets slapped around quite often, even Rei slaps him.
Besides, you miss the point of the bright slap. Amuro was a spoiled kid, almost. His father never hit him. Bright does.

Then you shouldn't take Anno's warped view for the truth. You and I know better.

Yes, but that is a non-relevant issue since not doing it would mean his life would never go on.

While that argument is poor, LRS is sadly not a thing because Shinji doesn't want to it seems. You can't force them.

Not as much as a slap as an admission that he's given up on taking Evangelion seriously. It's a metaphorical slap to the face for those that hoped Rebuild would be a more serious affair. What's done is done, Rebuild is now only for the otaku.

I think that was just showing where Rei's priorities were. Shinji barges into her apartment, sneaks a peek at her naked coming out of the shower, jumps to second base right on top of her, and all he gets is the cold shoulder.
But when he questions his asshole dad? Pop! She gives him five across the eyes.

If Shinji showed Asuka love, and dicked her a few times, she would probably mellow out, at least towards him, since she won't have to try so hard to get his attention anymore.

Yes, but it shows its age even more than Eva does at this point. It's mostly much more light-hearted and less serious than Eva, so don't expect that sort of seriousness. It does shit all over itself when Gainax had to outsource a couple of filler arcs because it was so popular they needed more episodes. But the Island arc is forgivable in its badness since there is plenty of good to see, as well as important plot points like the actual Secret of the Blue Water. The African village arc is cancer on the rest of the series.
Still, it's very Anno, so a lot of the characters have very glaring flaws. Notably Nadia herself, but, like Anno's other shows, there's a lot of depth to them all. And the finale is Anno to the core.

Well Rei isn't the first, but she's the rest. Still don't see a problem in dating aliens or clones.
Rei would make a great partner, and the best for Shinji if only because the competition is even worse.

If it's not Shinji, then pick any other similar person in a similar situation. It's better to have someone like Rei close to you, who will help you the best she can, than someone who won't.

Yet, storytelling wise she has this habit of failing constantly, so even if she does have a part in that she probably got fucked over by seele and on the longer term, if she is really important she is basically Gendo 2.0, and by that I mean being a useful (and disposable) puppet for Yui

It's all about Shinji learning of how he let us down and how he was a fool to himself and that he tries to live for no one else, but now through all hurt and pain, it's time for him to respect the ones who love him more than anything. So with sadness in his heart, he feels the best thing he can do is end it all and leave forever. What's done is done, and he feels so bad. He once was happy and now is sad. He thinks he'll never love again now that his world is ending
Then he thinks he can turn back time, because now the guilt is all his. He can't live without the trust from those he loves. He knows he can't forget the past, no one can forget love and pride, but because of that, it's killing him inside.
But despite his best efforts, it all returns to nothing as everything comes tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down.

Oh stop it, it's not about just being homo it's about being fujoshi pandering. Do you think Bara, HAADO GAY or you know, ACTUAL homosexuals are homo-pandering?

Fujoshi pandering is all about providing a safe, shippy enviroments where they can set the terms of the homosexual romance themselves. You know, create a mood, maybe a little bit of one on one near a piano, maybe some stargazing, maybe some plot about starcrossed lovers....

Shit like that. You know, the shit that wasn't in the original at all. Shinji could suck a billion dicks on-screen and it would not necessarily be fujoshi pandering.

The fujoshi pandering in 3.0 is the heaviest pandering Evangelion has ever done in a story that sells itself as serious business.

Nothing like the piano, no. You're missing the plot about starcrossed lovers, stargazing, and of course the fact that it's the entire focus of the series, killing off everything else.
What was in episode 24 was a moment of genuine development as opposed to the contrived, pandering situation of 3.0.

In NGE Shinji has been developed for 24 episodes and is naturally inclined to accept Kaworu, however in Rebuild that is not quite the case, meaning the movie has to brush aside everything and then force Kaworu in to make for something similar.

It's extremely fujoshi pandering, and that's a fact.

I don't understand why you're in this much denial about it.

Of course, don't take it literally. Shinji and Nadia's hair is supposed to be black, it's just represented as purple. For that matter, so is Misato's. Also, for some reason Sadamoto felt the need to give Nadia blue eyes in all his art after the show aired, even though her eyes are canonically turquoise.

If the second impact thing is true I'd say that probably soured things between Mari and Yui pretty badly. Thematically it actually could work pretty well with Mari being able to leave what she had done behind contrasted with Shinji and his inability to do so.

>>117307860
Then you're wrong. Objectively. It's not an opinion you can have without being wrong. You're lying to yourself and that's bad.

It's provable even mathematically. NGE has one episode featuring Kaworu out of 26. That's 1/26. Rebuild has one movie out of four. That's 1/4.
Do the math, and that's 650% more fujoshi pandering in Rebuild than in NGE.

That's not even accounting for the fact that Rebuild's fujoshi pandering permeates the entire Rebuild series. Kaworu is in the story since movie 1 and will probably be in the final movie as well. So from the start it's pandering with the starcrossed lovers plot, and Kaworu has been upgraded to a "monster of the week" character to a looping godlike figure.

You're very, very wrong anon. You have to agree with me here if you want to be right.

The original isn't fujoshi pandering, it's a well done character drama as opposed to what 3.0 does, which is just to make for suitable scenarios for fujoshi.

You don't introduce a timeskip, change every relationship and write a contrived plot to bring Kaworu and Shinji together around a piano in a single movie unless you want to pander to fujoshi.

He's not worrying about it being "real." It's just how he wants to represent his art. Look at Touji's track suit, or Shinji's pants, or Hikari's hair, back in >>117307351. All are supposed to be black, but they're represented as a different color to fit the aesthetic he's aiming for.

Theres plenty of other shows that have interesting characters and character development that exceeds what was done in NGE and EoE.
>>
>>117308741
I can't remember the last time anything important about Kaworu was discussed besides understanding his role in Rebuild and what the effects of it are, which are unilaterally negative for the story. Removing Kaworu from Rebuild would be better.
>>
>>117309028
Clannad designs are atrocious and Sadamoto has done the character designs for a bunch of different series?

>>117309133
What about the effects the Rebuilds seems to have on the original shows as a whole.

They aren't exactly good.

>>117309072
He did realize that, but like the rest of us he knows how terrible an idea that is and how poorly it was executed.
3.0 is (rather than doing something new) being a twisted retelling of NGE that removes the substance and replaces it with pandering.
>>
>>117309133
Kaworu is an agent of change for Shinji. He builds him up, supports him with love. Then dies and breaks the Shinji. And only a broken Shinji can move forward. He's a painful, but necessary part of the story.
>>
>>117309109
I wasn't talking about char development, you retard. But if YYOU want to go on that route, no, no anime can. Maybe Utena. Lain and Gits are good, but still far from NGE+EoE. Not even logh, since its hard to make a great characterization and development in an epic narrative. You don't even know what you're talking about.
>>
>>117309228
That too, and Kaworu is a major part of that. The looping seems to be stemming from him.

Stop writing "char" for character. It makes you look like an underage faggot.
Unless you actually want to talk about Char. In which case, go find a Gundam thread.
Also, Clannad is shit with shit character designs.
>>
>>117309242
He's not necessary when that's done by any other part.

What your'e saying is not even true for Rebuild because as 3.0 shows, they had to break Shinji before he could have any relevance.
>>
>>117309264

So you are going to stop at character design and thats it.
No development should ever be taken into account, so mr anon.

What interesting character designs are made in Eva that you are so overly fond of?

>>117309061
Assuming it's true I wonder if they'll meet in one of the movies or if it's timeskip material and therefore lost to time.

>>117309306
Just 3.0 in all practicality. Substance is not built with one or two movies, but it can be removed with one or halted entirely. That was 3.0.

Remove Shikinami, cancerous Q and Pokanami and Mari too.

Make it only of Shinji and Misato. Much better.
>>
>>117309298
A major thing not to look away from is that in the series Misato played a HUGE role for Shinji to develop and the making of his decisions.

In the Rebuilds shes gone from him and instead for Shinji to develop all on his own they stuck to the idea that someone had to influence Shinji, the person they choice was Kaworu.
>>
>>117301550
Have you heard the Good News about Lilith?
>>
>>117309361
Rebuild Shinji took a negative turn in 2.0, he became Gendo, Kaworu was necessary to purged him from his dark path before dying and leaving him to Misato and Asuka.
>>
>>117309483
So you want RahXephon?

>>117309072
>Did you really watch all of 3.0 without realizing that it's pretty much a retelling of the Kaworu eps of NGE?
I've actually been making that point since day one. Even before people started to agree en masse.

But there is an enormous difference between the two that's been quantified earlier in the thread. To repeat it simply, the re-telling of eps 24 is taking place at a point in the story where it does not fit. Hence the timeskip and everything needs to be rushed and located off screen.

The results and execution of this was absolutely dreadful. If we had in NGE a diverse cast of characters that each and one had substance, that is no longer the case because of 3.0. Because it focuses more on changing the original than it does building anything new.

So it's only concerned with making the right comments as opposed to being constructive, meaning that Rebuild is now fully devoting itself to loops, star crossed romance and so on for Kaworu. Without having the substance to back it up. Moreover, redoing ep 24 means they are also not doing anything very new structurally speaking.

This means it's fujoshi pandering at the highest possible level. You'd have to be insecure as hell to ignore that fact.

>>117309074
No, just 3.0.
>>
>>117309569
I don't want waifupandering with shallow one dimensional characters like those, Misato doesn't need to be a love interest, she can just end up with Kaji.

The route of a timeskip with a estranged relationship between them is good too, as long it's fleshed out.
>>
>>117309472
1.0 disregarded just about all character development and world-building to scream through the early parts of the series to set up for 2.0. Which disregarded established canon and started doing its own thing. Not as bad as 1.0, but still the pacing screamed through the plot to shove in as much as possible to get to Zeruel, who would finally start something completely different. 3.0 just carries on that theme of being "something completely different." Was it good? Fuck no. But it's not like it's without precedent.
>>
>>117309568
>Rebuild Shinji took a negative turn in 2.0, he became Gendo, Kaworu was necessary to purged him from his dark path before dying and leaving him to Misato and Asuka.
That's not true. Because it's Kaworu and 3.0 that makes it into a dark path, and only so because it forces a conclusion. This is all done through a timeskip where nothing is actually known. It has no substance or depth, it has no reasoning. It's not believable either.

Kaworu was actually not necessary at the level he was used in the Rebuilds.

Trying to dig out his waifu out of an Eva without caring to fuck the world isn't a dark path? That's exactly what Gendo wants to do and what Shinji can't become if he wants to advance and mature.

>>117309397
Yeah, you're retarded, as I thought.
Please, read my first post >>117308737
I was talking about the design of the characters, how they look like, not about personalities. Is my English that bad or can't you understand a simple phrase?
If you want to, I would love to talk about their development, but that wasn't my goal in the begining, as you can see.
>What interesting character designs are made in Eva that you are so overly fond of?
Have you ever heard about DSM-V? You can find a mental illness plus depression in almost every NGe character. You can also see how every character has a protruding side of Ego, Id or Superego.
I'm busy now, brb.

>>117309640
>1.0 disregarded just about all character development and world-building to scream through the early parts of the series to set up for 2.0.
How? It is condensed but does not disregard character development. As the first movie it is thoroughly setting up 2.0 like you say, much like NGE is setting up the next part with it's initial episodes.

>Which disregarded established canon and started doing its own thing.
What canon did it disregard? If Rebuild is it's own thing, then it's not disregarding any canon, given that it's own canon.

>3.0 just carries on that theme of being "something completely different." Was it good? Fuck no. But it's not like it's without precedent.
It is without precedent, yes. There is no earlier point where realism is dropped so hard in NGE as 3.0, and there is a 14 year long timeskip and effectively zero character interaction that doesn't seem contrived for the sake of plot.

Even the previous two movies were better here.

Reifags may have a point, and in the end I think it just comes down to a matter of preference.
But it doesn't matter anyways. The master laughs at all of us. And I fear this war will end in 3+1 with both of us losing.

At least Asuka's character wasn't completely raped by the rebuilds like Rei was. RoE2 wasn't that bad even though they completely skipped over the pinnacle of NGE that is Episode 9.
>>
Would people be upset if 4.0 took the hollywood route and split into two movies, if it meant the first movie would actually bother to setup some proper characterazation for the second movie, so when shit goes down, it actually feels earned?

If they wanted to do something so grand, it really should have just been a TV series.

>Trying to dig out his waifu out of an Eva without caring to fuck the world isn't a dark path? That's exactly what Gendo wants to do and what Shinji can't become if he wants to advance and mature.

That's not correct either. The only thing that's true is that the path is metaphorically dark, as in you can't tell what path you're actually on as you're walking.
The difference between the two paths they take is too great - where Shinji believes along with the rest of NERV watching that he's moving to save everyone, he is unbeknownst to everyone being part of someone elses plan.

3.0 could just as easily continue right after that, bring out Rei and Shinji and do a new story, without the path being dark. Being tricked or deceived is very different from what you're suggesting.

That's why 3.0 needs the timeskip, it needs to keep everything in the dark, or else it won't work as common sense will just blow it away immediately. More than it does even now.
>>
>>117309668
>Because it's Kaworu and 3.0 that makes it into a dark path,

No, the scene was thought up as bad for Shinji. Shinji acted like Gendo. That was negative for him.
>>
>>117309753
>Is my English that bad
What you where after is Character art design.
So not necessary bad English or knowledge of it just bad way of getting your question or point trough.

Going completely crazy insulting people is just another way of showing your bad conversation skills.

I have a feeling that the rebuilds are not the last iteration of Evangelion.

>>117309785
More like asspained Kaworufag who can't accept the changes and wants to pretend that nothing ever changed.
>>
>>117309895

Gendo is his shadow, anon. He acted like Gendo, he disregarded the world because he wanted his pillow waifu. He didn't care about the consequences, the scene was thought up as "Shinji acting irresponsible."

Kaworu was the character set up for him to "take responsibility." Rei has always been a negative character in Shinji's character arc, unlike Asuka, Misato or Kaworu. She represents the regressive mother womb that makes him want to be isolated from the world. Misato and Asuka represent more down to earth bonds with Kaworu as the bridge between fantasy and reality.
>>
>>117309785
No, pretty much everyone sans Kaworu fans seem to be on the same line here, that the fujoshi pandering in 3.0 far exceeds anything else in NGE.
It's an established fact that only a Kaworufag would attempt denying.

Don't be that guy.

>>117309910
You saying that doesn't make it true however. Regardless of it being thought up as bad or not, the continuation of it is entirely decided with 3.0. So is the decision to ignore any attempt at making substance over pandering.

Think for yourself instead of taking the path of least resistance. If anything, taking that path is the dark one. If you're not willing to think for yourself, you're just submitting yourself to the fantasy the anime sells you.

>You can find a mental illness plus depression in almost every NGe character.
Imo that doesn't automatically mean the over all character design in Eva and later works exceeds everything else only because ALL of the characters have some underlying depression affecting their decisions.
Sometimes it is even totally ignored but that could just as easily be cause of bad writing/translations that makes the decisions seem less credible.

That being said, Eva have a very good character design and development but going overly anal because Eva just happened to feature characters affected by their mental issues cause of Anno's own problems is very dickish.
>>
>>117309928
What do you even do with more though?
Another loop and retelling of the same events but slighter weirder?

Or does 3+1 end with everything going to shit even more, and build off that?

I just want to see the fruits of Shinji's growth at some point.
>>
>>117310082
>, the continuation of it is entirely decided with 3.0.

The fallout was always going to be negative, in case you didn't realize. Evangelion is all about Shinji's coming of age and Rei's always portrayed in a negative light for his maturity. That she made Shinji become Gendo Jr. spelled doom for her and for Shinji's future.
>>
>>117310062
>Gendo is his shadow, anon. He acted like Gendo, he disregarded the world because he wanted his pillow waifu. He didn't care about the consequences, the scene was thought up as "Shinji acting irresponsible."

None of that sans the latter is actually truthful.

Rather than taking the reality of the situation, or actually assessing it and trying to understand it, you're mindlessly taking a metaphorical approach that doesn't add up when understood at a rational level.

What you're talking about here is the surface and superficial level of the events, which is that it is trying to represent each character as a negative or positive, regardless of what that character actually is, or was for that matter.

As literary analysis, it's a failure what you're doing. Which is why the only point of view where you are correct, the fantasy perspective.

But it's the truth. You don't want to accept it and replace it with your own reality. You mustn't run away.
>>
>>117310241
>The fallout was always going to be negative, in case you didn't realize.
That has nothing to do with what we're discussing or what we said.

The negative fallout or regression of the characters is a theme or progression in Evangelion (or any other work that seeks to use the potential it sets up), but how it handles that is the key.

You also have to assess the facts of how 3.0 continued it - by pandering and selling what is an immature fantasy. Rei is not always portrayed in a negative light for his maturity, case in point being the original series. What you're saying here is a post-eva interpretation.
>>
>>117310348
It's not the truth as it is proven wrong within my post. The "running away" exists more on your side of the debate than mine.
I'm seeking to understand it as succinctly and accurately as possible, something which you are not. You argue with bias, I try not to.
