they don't resolve anything though, and the entire last two episodes feels like shinji took LSD until he fucking died and that was the ending

don't know how any of the other characters are doing, don't know any of the unsolved mysteries, don't know jack shit about anything that happened other than the writers were writing something great and then decided to get really fucking high

and shinji is STILL a bitchboy at the end of it

personally I didn't give a shit about his personal problems or their weird Nip existentialism based solutions. I wanted a giant robot fight to tie up the main arc. So I like EoE more
>>
>>151813783
the writers literally could have done that over the course of the series instead, similar to toradora, instead of keeping shinji a bitchboy the whole time and then deciding that all of his character development needed to happen while he was dying of a drugs overdose in the last two episodes

>I wanted a giant robot fight to tie up the main arc
Guess what Evangelion was literally meant to not be? Exactly that.

The entire point of the series is about Shinji's psychological issues and their resolution. The giant robots? Lilith? Adam? The Angels? All the Impacts? That's meant to be side content. By focusing on le ebin giant robot fightign xddd you're completely missing the point of the series and may as well go and watch fucking Gundam Seed Destiny.

EoE still did it better, by having him resolve his own problems in an incomplete fashion from the pilot seat and making his own decisions about the impact. They still had room for fanservice action scenes, too.
The last two episodes had about half an episode's worth of content in them, and padded it out with bullshit.
>>
>>151813975
>le redit maymay ecks dee
its pretty fucking obvious that the characters are the main point as in most non-shounen anime, but they somehow managed to not develop shinji the entire series and then refuse to tie up any of the plot relating to those elements in favor of making the last two episodes entirely shinji's hallucinations as some sort of character development

it was fine and maybe even profound to do the hallucination bullshit for five minutes in the last two episodes to FINALLY, FINALLY develop shinji a little bit but they decided to ignore literally everything else in favor of making the ending episodes entirely hallucination FILLER

Except that the important parts (ie: the sections that take place during Third Impact that lead to his rejection of instrumentality) are extremely lacking in the impact that 2526 have. Furthermore, EoE on its own acts and comes off as a mess. Example: No explanation is given as to Shinji's complete apathy in the beginning of the film, save the implication from jacking off, when we know that from 2526 it's his guilt from murdering Kaworu. EoE also doesn't explain and attempt to find a solution for the psychological issues of Asuka, Rei or Misato. 25 still did that and more, with 26 being the finale dedicated to Shinji alone.

I mean sure, EoE is beautifully animated, and it serves as brilliant context. It's a 10/10 film. But in the end it's just like the entire "battle arc" in the series: nothing more than context and explanation to the true focus.

>>151814105
>somehow managed to not develop shinji the entire series
Were you even paying attention? Shinji changes wildly from the start of the show to last few episodes. Most obviously he goes from being fairly wimpy to being assertive and brave. There's also a period in the middle of the series were he starts to open up, though by the end he's regressed significantly.
>>
>>151814446
She's definitely not the best character in Evangelion but she's far from the worst in all of anime.

Waifu wise though holy shit she is facepunch tier.

His "running away" was an act of protest against his father. It was him deciding not to be a pawn anymore. He only returns after his conversation with Kaji where he decides to pilot on his own terms for his own purposes. After which he rips apart the strongest angel up that point using his bare hands.

pretty sure that was the EVA on its own and shinji just got dissolved

Honestly, Eva is a fairly easy to understand anime. Are these fucks who complain it's "too deep" just used to having everything spelled out in front of them or something?
>>
>>151814838
but you literally don't have this thread every day
>>
>>151814825
No, he became one with the EVA, meaning they both did it as a single entity.
>>
>>151814937
its stated pretty clearly that the EVA moved of its own accord for the third time and both beat up that angel and ate its S2 core

whether or not shinji was directly involved with that is up to debate because as far as we know he just had more hallucinations the entire time he was dissolved
>>

>Watch the fucking movie you retard.
That's the point he's making, you dip. Imagine being an okatu in '96 and having THAT as your ending.
>>
>>151814937
Sort-of not really. Basically what happened was that he was turned into pure LCL by his mother (the Evangelion). At the same time, the Evangelion went beserk (ie functioned on its own with no power). While Shinji was indeed aware of his actions and whatnot, he was not in control of the Evangelion itself.

>>151813328
The last two episodes is the extential crisis that happens in Shinji's mind before he rejects the Human Instrumentality project in the movie End of Evangelion.

The fucking reason why EoE is titled that way is because its the REAL ENDING of evangelion, with the anime ending just implying that he rejected instrumentality and didnt nothing more.

Look for it yourself. As far as I know it was unsubstantiated, largely.

On the contrary, there is an actual Kaworufag, a slav I think, that made headlines for a suicide by cop.
