Anno told his fans to get the fuck over the franchise and gave them the middle finger.

When unit 01 is going wild, why doesn't Shinji kill the Eva series? Bothers me.

>>152333482
Because people can't deduce by themselves what really happend and will never get metaphoric/introspective cinematography, regardless its in animes or movies.
>>
>>152336559
Meta commentary is fedora-tier cancer.
>>
>>152333482
The show's ending is very odd and an unexpected way to conclude the astronomical suspense that episode 24 ends on
End of Eva is still very philosophical and odd for an ending but can strike a nerve with people who like to look smart by saying the OG ending is the only real one.

Both endings supplement eachother

because either at the time of watching or in general people can't grasp basic metaphors and symbolism so they get confused by everything that isn't shonen-tier "in-your-face" obvious, it's why you don't really need much for an anime to be considered deep and thoughtfull as opposed to cinema and to a much bigger extent litterature.

seriously, if you had basic text interpretation as part of your middle/highschool's "curriculum" then you should be able to grasp evangelion and EoE without much trouble, and most "deep" anime as well. and i'll also outright state that some of the stuff in eva towards the end and in EoE are purely visual/stylish and don't actually hold any deeper meaning.
>>
>>152337182
you're just projecting your disdain of things you don't understand

Evangelion's endings are not for everyone but don't pass your opinion as fact. Just say you didn't like it without generalizing.

Anno already said the symbolism is just there to look cool, it doesn't mean anything.

The whole thing is a surrealist art piece that's really about the artist, not itself.
>>
>so deep mane, you didn't get it
No, people hated it because it was a low budget copout.
>>
>>152336559
>>152338112
The end of the series just felt lazy though. It could have conveyed the same message in a natural, organic and meaningful way like it was doing for the past 24 episodes, but instead chose to end all in anti climatic way, full of overblown symbolism and meta commentary. It felt out of place in NGE and for good reason, the only reason Gainax did It was lack of budget.
>>152338196

That's just the religious symbolism, stop taking things out of context.

Noted.
>>
>>152338540
1 is not worth watching because it's pretty much the exact same as the first 6 or so episodes of the show but uglier
2 is just more ugly rehash and has some dumb changes
3 is still below the show but does actually introduce some fairly interesting world development IMO. I can't really recommend though, on the basis that you'd have to watch 2 to really understand what's going on.

Have you seen the show and EoE? If not, you need to watch those first.

Then it's really up to you. I'd probably recommend at least waiting until 3.0+1 completes it if you really want to get an idea of what they're like.

The ending was a bait and switch.
Most of the series was literally giant robots punching giant monsters in the face, then the last 2 episodes are 3deep5you shit animation stuff because the studio ran out of money.


It attracted a certain fanbase and then gave them and ending they would not like.

I finished the original TV series (though with the redone 21, 22, 23, and 24) as well as EoE for the first time a few days ago

I really didn't think the original ending was that out there. The jump from normal reality to instrumentality is a bit sudden but not jarringly so, and the actual CONGRATULATIONS scene flowed completely naturally from an the stuff before it, though I think the transtion from "Shinji being a fucking loser and not getting it" to "Oh wait I fixed my depression lol" is also a little sudden.

The show had a bunch of psychological interrogation scenes across it's enritity so I don't know why people would have thought it being the case for the ending would be that unexpected.

As far as EoE, it obviously provided a lot more context as for how the instrumentality was exeucted which I enjoy and there's a lot of cool imagry and all that but I feel like the actual post instrumentality internal look at shinji's head is handled worse and is harder to follow, though that could just be because I didn't realize most of that dialog was supposed to be currently happening inside the instrumentality rather then flashbacks to events that we hadn't seen before.
>>
>>152336972
>The show's ending is very odd and an unexpected way to conclude the astronomical suspense that episode 24 ends on

Most of the literature I was reading as a kid when I started with anime had similar endings, so I wasn't really suprised.
>>
>>152347970
Also, both Rei and Asuka are fucking shit, Masato ain't that great either. The Episode where 01 tears 03 up with Touji still inside it due to the dummy plug is best episode.
>>
>>152347869
its evangelion rebuild

1.0: the same as the old anime, the first fight is a 1:1 recreation, the others manage to be worse, which is quite notable because it looks like they put a lot of effort on ramiel, and somehow ended up worse

2.0: introduces a mari sue with no purpose, again the fights end up being worse than the originals

3.0: everyone is a dick to shinji for no reason. shinji is a fucking dumbass. subtle message that homosexuality is wrong despite all the faggotry of shinji and kaworu

Where did you get that from?

>>152348046
>Where did you get that from?
the spears, they needed two different spears to save the world, but both were the same, just like the pilots on the eva 13 were the same gender, cannot repopulate with that
>>
>>152348102
He needs to dual pilot with asuka, his true luuuv!
>>
>>152348102
They weren't trying to repopulate, they were trying to redo time.
And the Cassius spear is originally Kaworu's, Longinus belongs to Lilith and the lilin.
There were two Longinus, because of lilin foul play.

>>152348127
The preview showed Asuka dual piloting with Mari.
>>
>>152348155
>I just said that they need to repopulate the earth so spears/people need to be different genders

Try to be consistent. Shinji and the girl he luuvs will pilot together, syncing better than anyone ever could like in the original.
>>
>>152348155
it is a symbolism, you need two opposites to create or recreate

>implying the preview matters
yeah, I remember NERV staff put under arrest in 3.0
>>
>>152348245
Cassius can only be wielded by an angel though, so Kaworu is the only one who can use it.

That's why Gendo needed Shinji to pilot with him.

>NERV staff put under arrest in 3.0
Because that preview covers the events between 2.0 and 3.0, the 14 year timeskip.
>>
>>152348203
Clearly shows Mari and Asuka dual piloting together, they even made figures of their two Evas merged into one.

Anno said they are more than friends and have a homoerotic relationship.

That quote only says that Shinji wasn't think about sex during that scene, because he wants to keep Kaworu pure for marriage.

Not that it matters because Kaworu canonically gave Shinji sexual pleasure in EoE during spear sex scene.

Now, I don't want to pretend like I know anything about studio budgeting, lest some faggot get on my case. But from what I understand, by the time they were animating the last episode, they had run low on funds, and had to cut corners. The last episode was comparatively more abstract piece to compensate for the team's residual funds with minimal animation.

It was confusing and not very dynamic or satisfying, even to people who understood it. A lot of people weren't happy with "Congratulations" or how little was actually explained by the TV ending.

>>152354331
If I was in the car or walking around I wouldnt just put 'fly me to the moon' so its not a good song for that. But in the context of the show, it was the perfect song for me and is amazing. How many shows have tried to copy that feeling you get when some crazy shit goes down but then you end on 'fly me to the moon.' A lot, but the off the top of my head the one that comes to mind is parasyte.

The parasyte ED is probably an objectively more enjoyable song to listen to, but it just didn't fit with the show because its not as simple as putting a calm song after a violent scene. My point is, the song is god tier because of the anime for me. There arent a ton of songs that can bring me to a specific mood or feeling of goosebumps like Cruel Angels Thesis and Fly Me to the Moon do. 10 years from now if I randomly hear that rendition of fly me to the moon, ill still get a flood of emotions and nostalgia that feels like a drug or something.

That was a cool edit though

Are you guys jealous of my mugs?

I ordered one that has a picture of Misato drinking indifferently like in pic related, but without a glaring Shinji on her mug, and one mug with a glaring Shinji on it while the mug shinji holds has a glaring shinji on it. I can't wait to show it off to all my guests!

I have no guests, I have no friends, no family, no one will see my mugs.

It lacked substance, it kept being critical without offering any real alternatives or solutions to the problems it explores and you're just left with this weak mess at the end.

i ordered them from redbubble, I don't have pictures, but someone here will.

I wish there was asuka mug glaring pictures. Asuka has the fiercest glare.
>>
>>152357796
I guess I could get asuka glaring at people without having her hold a coffee cup...but I spent enough on glaring cups. maybe when I break these I'll get some asuka cups, but I should be breaking cups less now that I don't drink alcohol.

There's a doujin which sort of reflects on this, with Shinji and Rei showing contempt against their abusers

Am I the only one who enjoyed both the ending of NGE and EoE, but for different reasons?
>>
>>152361406
Regular ending kicks you in the guts. It's an ending more for the watcher than for the characters. I liked it but I felt depressed for a couple of days after it.
>>
>>152361495

Which one is the regular?

I felt the NGE end left a with a bright, optimistic note while EoE was an intentionally ambiguous ending, leaving the watcher wondering what will happen to Shinji and Asuka...
>>
>>152338861
It's possible to like both, Anon.
>>
>>152361584
By regular I mean the not EoE one.
>>
>>152361902

Ok.

The only controversial about the ending(s) was that it got me curious about the lore around the series, but when I tried to dig deeper into the canon all the answers seemed to return to a ''dude First Ancestral Race lmao'' -singularity and some deep, crypto-jewish hermeticism.
>>
>>152361406
I hate the normal one because it just ignores the rest of the plot which, despite what people will tell you, is important. It's almost impossible not to care about the details that Eva never reveals because it builds them up so well. You really want to know more but unfortunatly the only way of finding out is through fuck loads of online research.
EoE at least has the decency to show whats going on even if you can't understand most of it just by watching the show.
>>
>>152362280
>normal one
I mean't the TV ending FUCK
>>
>>152361584
Not quite. The TV ending was first clearly incomplete and also felt vain to the point of being cynical of itself. It's impossible to think you are supposed to take what happened at face value. It's not bad because in a way it did the same as the EoE ending, just implicitly.

Asuka is just pissed because if she had been eaten instead of Rei, no one would had moved a finger. Damn they would probably celebrate and sing ding dong the witch is dead.

Damned straight. Fuck Asuka and everyone who likes her.
