And watch several times over. You can pick details out of Evangelion how you would with rereading LOTR. It is that dense in detail and information.
>>
>>134023654
yeah this as well

after i watched the first time i knew it would be something i would watch many times
>>
>>134023217
Just go in with an open mind and remember that the last two episodes happen during the movie.

Also, BUDGET CUTS.
>>
>>134023731

I was bewilderbeested. The first time I heard of Evangelion, I was calling it Neo Genesis EvanJELLYon. I was so stupid about it. Now.... I'm just the aftermath of Anno's mindfucking. I learned much from it, though. Communication was the foremost subject.
>>
>>134023217
Watch the original series as you normally would. For EoE, the only correct way to watch is while plastered. I highly recommend this.
>>
>>134023751
this is important

also I'm a moron can someone explain the last scene of the movie
if Shinji figured out he loved himself then why did he try to kill Asuka?

I tried watching it drunk and high months after I'd finish it the first time.

It was better sober.
>>
>>134023950
Well, the logic I had was even sober, I still wouldn't know what was going on. Might as well be drunk and enjoy the ride. I'll call anyone a liar if they said they comprehended what the fuck happened the first time

He only figures out that it's a possibility and where he needs to start if he expects to change. He's still angry.

Watch this first if you want to understand it

>>134023217
First, don't make a thread that looks like an invitation to post stuff like Shinji kills Asuka and then it all comes tumbling down.
>>
what do you mean how? just watch it

above average mecha, i dont like mecha

>>134023217
Realize that very few of your questions will ever be answered. Also, understand that the last 2 episodes of the series only exist because Anno ran out of money, the real TV series ending is the End of Evangelion movie. Watch the series in order first, then the End of Evangelion, and then the rebuilds (optional).
>>
>>134027744
Eva is 20 years old, probably older than most 4chan users. That's like asking a teenager why they haven't seen the Godfather.
>>
>>134028629
Not really. If you browse this board with any amount of regularity you would pretty quickly realize that NGE is a pretty big part of board culture and that you might want to watch it.

You also might not give a shit about board culture though.

Are the things other than the main 26 episodes and EoE worth watching?

>>134029873
The rebuild movies are decent so far but they're supplemental to the main series at best.
>>
>>134029985
As opposed to watching it... ironically?
>>
>>134030758
Well yes, obviously
>>
>>134023217
Watch it without consulting /a/ or any forum because they'll hit you with the casual internet hivemind:

>Shinji is a pussy

Keep in mind that the MC is a 14-year old boy

First thing you need to know is the content available:

- "Neon Genesis Evangelion", the original tv series, 26 episodes.
Must watch, the soul of the series itself. Due to a budget cut, the last two episodes do not solve anything about the plot but focus on a psychological introspection of the main characters.

- "Death & Rebirth", movie.
"Death" summarizes the original series, "Rebirth" is new content.

- "End of Evangelion", movie.
Contains two parts, the first is "Rebirth", and the second is new content.
The movie replaces the last 2 episodes of the original series, eps 25 and 26, with the ending the author initially intended.

- "Rebuild of Evangelion", 4 movies.
A re-telling of the original series slightly different in many aspects. First movie is essentially the same as in the series, Second movie introduces radical changes to the original plot, Third movie changes completely, Fourth movie isn't out yet.

My personal recommendation: watch the original 26 episodes and End of Evangelion, skip "Death and Rebirth" since it's just a summary + the first part of End of Evangelion.

After you digested the original series, go watch Rebuild. Just don't marathon rebuild right after NGE+EoE, because it might just confuse you.

First time you watch it, just enjoy the show without looking on the internet for answers, opinions or stuff. Just think for yourself about it, try to find a meaning yourself.

After, you can theorize and go looking for symbolism all you want.

>>134032848
Underrated post.
>>
>>134023492
I feel that a lot of its fans only like it because they don't take the full oppressive brunt of its cynicism directly and don't directly relate to Anno's mindstate while watching it. I can't stomach it because it really hits you with the anxiety and confused meaninglessness of depression, but otherwise lacks a narrative that is really made to be followed and enjoyed in its own right.

>>134023751
>Just go in with an open mind and remember that the last two episodes happen during the movie.

There's nothing confirming this, it's just half reasonable fanwank that everyone here assumes to be true, as opposed to the two endings being completely different.
>>
>>134023829
No one can answer you.

>>134024417
People like this who think they know are either delusional or are fucking with you and will always gives you different answers. Anyone who claims it makes sense are outright lying.
