all the mechs are really great which it's the only thing that matters.

You should read them, the stuff that's on the wiki isn't enough to describe how crazy and stupid the story really is.

for example Asuka as an eva gave birth to shinji in the last chapter of the novels, there's incest romance, Mari is a literal catgirl, Hikari is absorbed by armaros (don't remember if that's the name) a giant eva .. the earth becomes our moon and the moon transforms itself into a new earth..weird shit all over the place.

I made this thread because I did read it and I don't want to talk about shitters who just saw the designs and have some talk about it.

I know all those events, but even the way you describe it doesn't get the context like Mari being an offshoot of the american takeover of NERV USA after the supposed explosion of Unit-04 and how they decided to take another way to pilot evangelions by splicing animal DNA into the EVA and pilot.

And how this eventually caused Armaros to seek to refuse US EVA and Mari because beasts and not humans, making americans kinda saviors of the world somehow.

anons.

"For the future, he wishes Evangelion will become a cultural icon, one of the cornerstones of anime, much like Gundam, which has become an institution in and of itself. Like Gundam, where many creators can play around with the elements and create their own worlds, it is Anno’s hope that Evangelion can also be set free, to be reconstructed and reinterpreted in many ways by many other artists."

Anno is a fucking hack of course the guy is going to put all the creative output of eva into new hands which the logical option will always be ANIMA adapted, then some new shit until the end of time.

Why do you think Evangelion is appreciated? How many spinoffs of Evangelion are focused on the mecha side rather than the characters of Eva?

Anima is made for mechafags. even when anno talks about gundamize the concept, he is more talking about different perspectives and not talking about the mecha portion of it.

Evangelion merchandising is such a juggernaut not because of the eva figures, but how they can market the characters, movies and colors.

To think otherwise just shows how little you know about evangelion itself and how it changed the marketing game. (go read the Groundworks CEO interview for example)

yeah and that's what I'm telling you, they're gonna tell the same story over and over with multiple iterations like gundam.
gundam had gundam 00, seed, age , and all the other bullshit that are practically remakes with a bunch of new stuff.
> How many spinoffs of Evangelion are focused on the mecha side rather than the characters of Eva?

eva is not appreciated 'cause it's well written or some shit (if you want a really good story you just need to watch legend of the galactic heroes, argento soma, turn a gundam or something else entirely) but because evafags are delusional waifufags, which is why all the other projects are romcoms, porn, shitty visual novels with romance, more porn , slice of nothing happens with romance and all that shit.

Holy shit, that thing was preposterous. That's the only word I can think of. Asuka mutates into her Eva, Shinji is the villain and the hero and gets his heart stolen (which he gets back), he's dreaming a reality, the 4 Reis. Trees, cats and dogs, swords, the moon squeezing the Earth dry. It's all just so over the top. They certainly know their science but their writing is too outlandish. Eve might've been fairly fantastical but it was also very grounded; this is not, anywhere.

>>20795563
If those are the only parts that stood out to you you probably enjoyed it more than I. Well, I say that, but not like I didn't read it till the end where, I'm guessing, it got canceled or they just moved on to the Rebuilds.

>I want to talk about the story.
Welp, I can try to accommodate, but I don't remember the details too well. I remember the overarching story, some of plot points and the general gist of it. I don't remember things like the events in that giant cave, HOW Shinji got his heart taken, how he stayed alive without it, what the excuse to constantly change unit 1 around, why Asuka went to space and so on. I remember the egg, the watermelon patch, the fact that in this story Eva is also a repeating cycle, that amoros is someone significant and his cronies are the two people he loves most in the world, which for Shinji it's Asuka and Rei and for Hikari it's Touji and her sister. Lord, even typing that out it's all so silly.

People tend to simplify the Asuka turns into an Evangelion, but it is way more complex than that and more interesting. The component of the Ark as something that stores life information of all living beings and that can morph the Evangelion (which is a being that already morphs as things change), and asuka's mother using the EVA to at least save her daughter by turining into Crimson A1. It is way more interesting than just using Asuka > Eva.

And this is just one of the dualities of the story in how two different set of elements are totally alienlike: We have all the technology side explained like the N2 flankers, the diamond slits explaining flights, the gamma-ray laser canons and also the totally mythical shit like the Ark, Torwart and Angel Carriers, that works like magic and are totally unexplained in how they work. Even SEELE doesn't know much even after a few loops.

And it didn't get cancelled, the serialization ended in 2012, around the same time 3.0 was released, so there wasn't even time for it to be affected since in the 3.0 concepts some are dated from years ago

Nope. The serialized version has more illustrations, a prequel to the story, to not even say about settings that was collected in the ANIMA visual book that shows examples of technology not shown in the series with more explanations to it.

And it was never translated.

I think my love for anime are in the details of stuff, not the general broad stuff. I fucking loved when Yamashita explained how the entry plug worked, and how a defect in it, drained asuka's hair and she had to cut it. how they make stuff to be able to be used inside the liquid inside it.

things that aren't explained in the TV or movie are sometimes explained in it and I love it.

Be that as it may, as well written as you might find it, it ultimately is, still, Asuka turning into an eva. That's silly. I find it as awkward as unit 2 turning into a cat.

>And it didn't get cancelled
Well, then that was a terrible spot to end it on. Gendo and Ritsuko come back, the Earth is uninhabitable while the moon is bigger and it all looks pretty grim for the foreseeable future. There is too much left without a conclusion so you can see how I would think that they cut it off before the end when we were left with a pretty notable cliffhanger.

>>20799246

>the details of stuff
I won't pretend that there isn't merit in it. It has quite a few brilliant concepts (which I also say about the rebuilds, which people don't like me saying) and, as I said, they certainly seem to have the science part down, however, as a narrative, I can't really get behind it. Same as the Rebuilds but for different reasons.

>>20799842
I don't think it is silly, since that shows the true nature of what really is an evangelion, rather than just a big human. If you want to question that aspect of it, you should question even basic design as for why unit-02 have 4 eyes instead of 2 and why unit-03 and unit-04 have two eyes.

The idea that this gigantic being alters his own shape with the happenings in the scene, is nothing new to be honest, even in the NGE days, Ikuto Yamashita said that the eva only gained eyes as Shinji wanted to see, reacting to it after it. The entry plug controls for example are a great example of how the mind perceiving the evangelion to move using it was a way of the eva perceiving the movement.

And this isn't something that was created on anima or the rebuilds, it is something from the start of the series.

I agree that there should be an epilogue, but the way it ended is on par with the TV anime, EoE and even the rebuilds, and by an epilogue I mean things concerning the affairs ot the word, not Gendo or Ritsuko. (and it gave us a glimpse of that with the mention of Moon Thief.

It was a abrupt end right after climax, but not so abrupt to indicate a cancelation. (we even see the last illustrations with all teenagers (including quatre) reunited.

In the end it is a matter of taste, since for example I quite like 3.0 in Rebuild case because it steers away from the usual NGE, but I don't like 3.0 + 1.0 because it kinda goes back to it without adressing much of the elements of 3.0, making a quitte strong whiplash in the setting without exploring much of what was developed in 3.0.

>>20799925
there really isn't. Shinji just feels awkwards towards Rei after learning she was based on his mom.

>>20801678
>I don't like 3.0 + 1.0 because it kinda goes back to it without adressing much of the elements of 3.0
What would you have liked to see them expand on from 3.0?
>>
>>20801695
the whole NERV production line that was cut from the movie and we could see the glimpses of it on the Imageboards of Mahiro Maeda, how they used Rei clones to operate and make new evangelions.

It was just subtlely implied but we never got much about the story of how WILLE was formed, and how they spawned KREDIT. We see them working on it, but we don't see how they work on it, the other villages, how the technology of angel-sealing works, the wanderers and why do they wander and so on.

There are lots of stuff in 3.0 + 1.0 that I enjoy but in the end is pushed aside for gendo's therapy session.

>I don't think it is silly
Well, I'm glad you liked it. No sarcasm. More power to ya.

>If you want to question that aspect of ... have two eyes.
What? So, since I think it's silly I therefore must question design choices not as that but as the implication of the nature of the beast? That's even sillier. It doesn't have 4 eyes because that's how they designed it and what came after is the excuse for it. Again, credit where do, they certainly put a lot of thought and imagination into it but it is still of design preceeds reasoning. Is there also a notable reason she's in high heels?

>It was a abrupt end right after climax
I have to disagree. The reason I mentioned Gendo and Ritsuko is because the implication is that their return opens up avenues of action. Both are brilliant scientists and their knowledge and presence would have an advent effect on the situation. There is no point in making a note of their return. Too much is left unresolved for it to be the natural place to end. Say what you will about the ambiguity of any Eva finally but they didn't leave things unresolved.

>there really isn't
There actually is an argument to be made for it. The genetic material of his mother and another compatible being are the two parts of her genetic makeup. That's arguably a half sister. The other being, though, might be so alien to humans as two angels are from each other, making it a relatively null point. I like the pairing, so much so I wish someone would translate these (<-) already, but that's not to say there isn't grounds for it.

>>20801713
Is this in any artbook? If not, then Gainax needs to stop jerking people around like that. It used to create an air of grandiosity and mystery to the projects but, now, it's just obnoxious that you have to go looking for it like that.

Anyway, I don't care for the rebuilds, at all. I liked each subsequent one less and less for a multitude of reasons. 3.0 is where I really lost all semblance of cohesion for me.
>>
>>20802355
>It doesn't have 4 eyes because that's how they designed it and what came after is the excuse for it

Wrong, check out Sore wa Nasumono, page 40 Yamashita was wondering these types of quirks and explanations for his design even before the anime was made, that is the type of creator that Yamashita is.

>Is there also a notable reason she's in high heels?
yes, it is written on the postscript of the volume 4. It was a personal request for Asuka to be the same height as shinji, ans even got recreated by the orichalcum, such desire by asuka also interfered in Crimson A1 design since it was a way of preserving Asuka by her own mother.

>Both are brilliant scientists and their knowledge and presence would have an advent effect on the situation.
that is wrong lol. Ritsuko herself admits that what Maya and the others did after they left 3 years ago was way more advanced than before, even Gendo's political position means absolutely nothing since the old NERV was disbanded, remember the first scene with Fuyutsuki, his house arrest was one example in how things had changed.

>Say what you will about the ambiguity of any Eva finally but they didn't leave things unresolved.
literally the last movie, The last scene with Toji, Hikari and Tsubame are they crying as the waves crashes the pillars, we don't see anything about them after it, we don't even know the mechanics of how the people that were inside the escape pods got coreified or not, or how the people that came back did anything as they fell from the skies. or how even the fuck they went from antartica to japan. It was left there but lots of things were unresolved, even more than ANIMA.

>>20802355
gainax never had anything to do with rebuilds, its been khara since 2006.

And no, it isn't from any artbook, it is literally a video showing the imageboard that was included in 3.333

>>
>>20802490
>wondering these types of quirks and explanations for his design even before the anime was made
As he was designing them. The design came first and then the why.
Look, you can justify it however you want, it's still a giant Asuka with thigh high boots on heels wearing a one piece bikini thong with long sleeves. I'm not sold on it just because they put a lot of thought in to it any more than I am sold on a unit 2 cat form.

>that is wrong
It's wrong? So Ritsuko is NOT a brilliant scientist just because her apprentice managed to do something beyond her build on the foundation of HER and her mother's work, nor is Gendo, for that matter? So, his only contribution to this whole ordeal was his political influence? Not his knowledge of Eva, Instrumentality, cloning nor any of the many secrets he kept regarding all this?

>the last movie
Fair enough. Difference being that they were probably intentionally left out to focus on the main cast, who got A LOT of very evident conclusions and climaxes to their stories and we have a very evident ending where there is running and smiling and hand holding. There really isn't much more to go on to. Anima ends without such clarity or clear cut conclusion and tremendous amounts of space for more story to be given.

>khara since 2006
So they're the ones who release all their material and cool concept art in 50 different places so you have to buy it 50 different times. What a'holes.

I assume there's a fan translation out there and I really have to wonder if the translation manages to get across how FUCKING WEIRD the prose is

I really like a lot of the ideas and actual events that happen in Anima but the prose at times reads like a creepy SMS from a middle aged man (pic very related)

On one hand a good translation which rewrites the thing to not be in creepy SMS prose might actually make it better because the writer is clearly not a writer at all, but on the other hand seeing this shit in actual print is a fucking trip

>As he was designing them. The design came first and then the why.

No, another example is the Spear of Longinus, he and Anno had the idea of what it was before it was designed. If you ever went through the design process of Yamashita you know how he dwelves in the details before the design was made. Let me give you one example: this design was his proposal to the Mass Production Evangelion for the EoE, it wasn't accepted and they went with the one made by Takeshi Honda.

Decades later, they reused the design and all explanations from this unused setting were used in the book almost 30 years later.

and the thing is: how do we know this? Because it is stated on the fucking book. Why would he lie? Why would I lie if I am giving you the direct source, this is his creatrive process even with his own stuff like Iconic Field, he has over 150 setting pages for a trailer of 8 minutes. Do you really think he makes things as it goes?

>So Ritsuko is NOT a brilliant scientist just because her apprentice managed to do something beyond her build on the foundation of HER and her mother's work

She was out of loop by three years already, even if you compare anything in NGE that she had involvement (Type F and CQB) was outdated by the first volume. Even Maya that was around the whole proccess of the Super Evangelion and the new technologies had much clue about how it worked, why do you think Ritsuko would quickly grasp at something? Misuzato had more impact at it and it shows.

>Gendo, for that matter? So, his only contribution to this whole ordeal was his political influence? Not his knowledge of Eva, Instrumentality, cloning nor any of the many secrets he kept regarding all this?

And he is completely overshadowed by his teacher, Fuyutsuki. There isn't any media that shows Gendo knowing more or keeping Fuyutsuki on the dark. Even when they mention NERV US, it was Fuyutsuki who explained that Gendo also believed that it was humans who should be in that position instead of beasts.

So their presence brings absolutely nothing, even Misato almost refused Kaji's presence after SEELE takeover was absent, but he still got some information about it. Ritsuko could make some sense to be on board just because it was Misato, but Gendo? he could add nothing to the whole ordeal.

>Anima ends without such clarity or clear cut conclusion and tremendous amounts of space for more story to be given.
I don't think so, what I wanted was an epilogue for the events, not an extention to more plot involved more characters that were absent for the most part and even in those parts were given much resolution (Yui x Gendo moment for example). I couldn't see another volume going at all.

>No
Yeah, you're still avoiding the issue and pretending that it's some brilliant concept of design, science and engineering when it's a giant Asuka with prominent cleavage. Oh, design this, and thought process that. It's a stupid idea and having pages and pages of concept analysis doesn't change the fact that it's silly as all hell. You're as likely to convince me that Shinji piloting a giant Pen-Pen is some brilliant concept because they designed it well and thought really hard about it.

>She was out of loop by three years already
Yes, and it's not like she's smart enough to catch up and nor could she bring in other insights that could help in the predicament they're in with her scientific knowledge in what she's proven to be multiple fields. 3 years might as well be 50, she's so far behind the times. So, at the very end, they brought in two prominent characters that were missing, which people mention their importance of more than once, just point out how useless they are. Not the pinnacle of storytelling, I have to say.

>completely overshadowed by his teacher, Fuyutsuki
The most useless character in all of Eva. He might be brilliant and knowledgeable but the man never did anything. Gendo was the man of action, the one with the plan, if you'll pardon the expression, and the motivation to act. He was not a moron, either. You are seriously underplaying their capacities and potential that these two can offer. Plus, if it's true and they are really did show up in the end for nothing then that's some pretty terrible writing. Why bother? Might as well not bother to bring them back at all.

Like I said, if you like these, more power to ya. You're time and money. You're not convincing me of any of these points, though, and I still find too much of it silly and even downright stupid, I don't care how thoroughly they thought it out. Just like with the reboots I think it has some brilliant concepts and ideas but the dumb or underwhelming outweigh the positives.

I am not avoiding any issue because it isn't an issue. Evangelions are jinzo ningen, why would them to have breasts be any issue? They are amorphous beings that turns into humanoid as the pilot is on contact more and more. Why would you have a problem with evangelion boobas if the whole point of the design is that it was absorving shit, even non-organic technology like the N2 gravitons generators in the hair? In EoE, we can even see their internal organs and features that doesn't have functionality like anus and internal organs

This isn't even something new or from ANIMA, here a page of another booba evangelion with hair from Sore o book from 98! So not even there is precedent, but the whole animal thing from the Rebuilds is just another extention of that. Just like the Angel-EVA-02 in the rebuild movies are too. The thing is: its always like this, so I don't understand why do you think it is so out of the realm of reality since its happened since the beginning.

"ah but it is silly" then all of evangelion always have been silly.

>He might be brilliant and knowledgeable but the man never did anything.
"Fuyutsuki, I leave it for you." Both aren't very characters to act much, to say Gendo is a man of action is just silly, since the two moments they do act on their own instead of saying: Rei do this, Shinjo do that was in the manga and in the last movie. And even then in both series I could use the Fuyutsuki card of his sneering at Gendo in the manga and the ships controlling in the movie.

You are clearly overplaying Gendo as the man of action when both of them are always the talking men and giving orders. Which in ANIMA one is enough since the whole organization structure is already changed.

> Just like with the reboots I think it has some brilliant concepts and ideas but the dumb or underwhelming outweigh the positives.
Now you got me curious, list it. Because so far you are complaining about Evangelion... being Evangelion.

>why would them to have breasts be any issue?
You've got to be kidding me.
First off, if you really want to go there, everyone has breasts. Men and animals. It's called the breast plate for a reason. What they don't have is tits, a rack, cleavage. Nor a thong that rides all the way up their ass. It's a giant sexy robot and you want me to pretend that that's something I'm supposed to take seriously?

>Pic
Well, gee, I wonder why that little tidbit of fan service didn't make it on the show seeing how it would fit right in with it.

>Fuyutsuki, I leave it for you
And what exactly did he do, aside from reacting and exposition?

>both of them are always the talking men and giving orders
I never saw Fujitsuki giving approving projects to further the scenarios nor plan for things to happen to the evas, the spear, the pilots or the angels. He dealt with SEELE a total of once and in that whole episode the most he did was investigative action.

>Now you got me curious, list it
If you find giant sexy robots and cat evas to be solid material I can't imagine much that you wouldn't find dumb. Eva is fantastical, sure, but this is downright ridiculous and your defense of it as genuinely solid material that is in line with one of the show really doesn't speak well on your capacity to differentiate between good and goofy.

Liking dumb things isn't bad, Everyone does, so go ahead and like it, but pretending that they are not and trying to argue that they are with irrelevant evidence is an entirely different story. And, yes, it is irrelevant. I don't care how much effort it took to make it align with the science of the mythos or when the designer published his illustrations explaining how it fits, it's still a cat eva, a giant sexy robot, and an entire splurge of silly, downright outlandish concepts. When, who or why doesn't eliminate that anymore than it would if someone put a Gundum with tits and had the equivalent of your list of material.

Man, I think you must have some serious problems with women. Does the breasts or the curves of a woman scare you so much to leave such deep impressions?

>I never saw Fujitsuki giving approving projects to further the scenarios nor plan for things to happen to the evas, the spear, the pilots or the angels. He dealt with SEELE a total of once and in that whole episode the most he did was investigative action.

Well, if you aren't going to even remember his own name right, I sure as fuck I won't trust you on this, because I am pretty sure it happens, just like it happens in ANIMA when Toji asks him to take on Misato's role (another totally different position than he has in NGE or RB).

>If you find giant sexy robots and cat evas to be solid material I can't imagine much that you wouldn't find dumb.
nice job avoiding the question, but I ask again, list it.

Because I am quite sure your idea of positives elements in Evangelion are quite sparse since you can't even list it. And even more when you prove again and again that you have absolutely no idea what the fuck you are talking about. And more and more I even doubt that you even read anima at all. Since what you describe at your first post was something that could easily be taken from the wikia or something.

It is almost like you feel ashamed of core concepts of the series, even when they are fundamentally all over evangelion media, and this isn't even some silly stuff like shinji rising project, but the overall lore and mechanics of the main series.

but again, list what you think is good and bad on rebuild.

I honestly think this is one of the symptoms of Rebuild's biggest problem: lack of planning.
Anno restarted Eva with honestly no plan in mind if not "tell Eva another time". This is not a problem per se back in 2007, but it adds up.
1.11 was an excellent re-telling of the very first episodes in HD and new cool effects (see Ramiel fight), but through the movie at the same time it implied that a new story will take place (from the very first frame in fact: the sea is red!) and ends with a fucking solid cliffhanger with Kaworu.
2.22 develops the new world in a subtle way: new international organizations regulate Evas; thanks to the Third angel humans have a better understanding of them (they tried to pilot it. If you look closely the Third angel has an entry plug); there are FOUR and not one Adams etc.
Cooler fights and in general good pacing carry the movie until the reveal that Asuka is the pilot for Eva-03: then the rebuilds reach their brillance.
From that reveal to the pre-credit finale 2.22 becomes a marvelous calibration of spetacular fights, plot development, emotional scenes and plotwists. By the end we are sure that we are watching something that is not the old Eva. The possibilities are endless and the psot-credit scene just add on the hype with Kaworu finally playing a part in the story.
But now the nodes reach the comb and Anno, I suppose, didn't know how to untangle them.
Main problems now is Shinji blocked in the Eva. Anno planned a film with no Shinji, but then decided to adopt a timeskip.
I think most problems began here. At this point of the story, crucial since we diverge from NGE, there aren't really clear ideas on how the movies should tell the timeskip, and this is a problem even after the tetralogy has finished (we still don't really know). I also suppose that many details of the timeskip just don't exist and Anno had only a vague idea of waht happens (eg kaji dies). (1/??)
>>
>>20807131
I don't think it's that complicated, of anything we know Anno and his team DO plan things far ahead but then production happens and that's where things get messy to us because they either can't go through with the planning or they decide to change things because they feel like telling something else.
Whether you like what they do or not is entirely subjective, you can't ever please all the fans (and non fans) expectations so you might as well do whatever you please with the resources you got.
>>
>>20807131
3.33 had proably a rough planning compared to the two first movies. Every old/alternative script of the movie that resurfaces is a lot more clear on what happened during the timeskip and its more clear in terms of what happens during the movie as well.
3.33 is voluntary disorienting. Aside from liking this sensation or not, most plot points are left behind and new ones are introduced that don't make a whole lot of sense and just give a sensation of incompleteness (four adams? never mentioned, along with the heavily implied "01 and 06 are two of them". Enjoy however Adam's vessels and 13 being an "adams survivor", now plot points cited behind imprescutable dialogue!), pacing is a bit akward (eg good action start, followed by a mediocre and again action scene in which I should feel interest in a bunch of new characters that I don't know), some characters just exist for no real reason (most of Wille's new crew; in a way Mari since the movie fails to develop her by ONE inch apart from confirming that she knew Ikari. For example, we never know why she can pilot the evas, who trained her, how she managed to take 02 out of deposit etc), some decisions are a bit - odd?- (cat-02, Asuka new outfit) and the more "psycological" tone of the movie alienated most viewers at first watch.
On top of this, we don't really know WHY IS SHINJI GUILTY (we aren't told of what happens and how much he is responsible for all that shit) and the movies ends with a cliffhanger (walking on the red sand).
There are good scenes (opening sequence, fourth impact) and in general it is a pretty decent movie, but it just doesn't feel right.
Final starts with a gasp of air and much needed character development, and the first section (village) is the perfect continuation of the imprescrutabile 3.33. We have time to stop, think, observe, feel. Rei-Q can develop her character and end her arc; shinji can be supported by his now-adults friends and mature etc.
>>
>>20807276
Then we kinda shit the bed. The action scenes range from great and gorgeous to meh and it is evident they planned somehting else initially (ground fight against mark.6 copies) and loredumps that could be avoided witha better storytelling. Final tries to answer some old questions (eg adams vessels) but it is all very confusing, new things continue to add up (new ships, new impacts, new powers), and by the end of the film we are in complete meta-territory.
Now I am tired and I want to finish this rant, soI will be short. finishing with a meta-commentray of sort is okay, and its okay to have a father-son moment (that is just reverberate a confrontation of a past versus a present first and foremsot for Anno himself). It's not okay to just say fuckall to the plot because you have no idea how totie all together. Hell, very cool twist jsut feel of absolutely no impact (the adams were five and one of them was the leader (13): who cared if the otehr 4 are nondescript evas? What happend to 01 and mark.6?) or stupid (really, what the fuck is the problem with Mari) or underdeelped (The ninth angel was an inside job? Too bad we have zero fucking clue that is could be, since Gendo was panicking in 2.22 when shit goes down!) . I liked the finale bacause it's the goodbye of an author to its beloved child (and the whole Asuka scene is basically that) and embracing a new life with his wife as support (Mari), but the story just goes fuckall.
In short, I think something went wrong with planning, or after 2.22 Anno had problems writing Eva. Final manages to save itselfs being meta and not by being the conclusion of a series of movies, which is bad if you consider that the plan was "retelling Eva".
>>
>>20807290
One more thing: some details are just in Annos head. Do you know that Kaji and Kaworu take control of Nerv after the 10th angel? Do you know thst Kaworu's corpose is being controlled by entry plug and acts as a pilot of 13 in Final? No? Too bad that this is all true and confermied by movie details and Twitter posts/intervies. Why not putting it in the movie itself then?
Also, some scene make more sense with the old plot mind. In 3.33 Gendo is leader of Nerv again and "betrays" Kaworu by swapping lances and kills Selee with them cool with it. In the old plot, Gendo would have take control of Nerv back from Kaworu and lead him to his death,along by killing Seele by force. While in the current one we need to make various assumptions an why thst scene happen, in the old one it actually makes sense!
Only God knows what happened with 3.33, I swear.

You're one to talk, specially after avoiding mine by listing design pages and getting condescending over someone telling you it's impossible to take a story that unironically tries to pass off a giant robot with a big rack and a thong as something serious with shit like 'you must have a problem with women' and 'you feel ashamed of core concepts of the series.' It's fuckin' fan service and not even good fan service so, no, I'm not going to pretend it, nor any of the other silly shit in this ln, is some great piece of writing. You want me to list ALL of the things I find to be dumb as hell here? Can't even get passed the first few issues, what would getting through all of them be like? Ain't no one got that many hours in the day.

Ok. I'm done with you. Frankly, you have shit taste, which would be fine and good if you didn't have your head up your ass about it. You wonder why no one wants to talk seriously with you about this it's because it's not good enough to be taken seriously and when they do you act like a cunt who is incapable of even admitting that this is some silly ass shit.
I wouldn't care if you liked it and I would've been content to talk about it, happy even, since, as I said, I didn't hate it and would like to have a serious discussion about it, but I do refuse to pretend it's good just because you can't admit to any of it's drawbacks even to yourself. If you'd say something to effect of 'yeah, it's silly but I love the thought desing process and mentality and even the science behind it,' ok, cool, but for whatever reason, fanboyism, I'm guessing, you just can't seem to grasp just how dumb it all is nor allow others to think of it as such and, damn it all to hell if you're not going to ignore it all and nitpick your way out of answering to any real criticism. Nah. Fuck that. Got better things to do. Even writing this wasn't as cathartic as I'd hope it'd be.

>there really isn't. Shinji just feels awkwards towards Rei after learning she was based on his mom.

Read the novels again, shinji feels Really awkward with all the Rei clones but the incest romance is there, first with how Quattre kisses shinji and the only thing he was thinking during that was "this was way better than Asuka.."

The second time when they kiss each other (which is way more than Asuka that didn't even receive a single kiss in these novels) and he's not repulsed by the idea (which would be the normal stuff)

The third novel is full of bullshit couple nonsense (the first time I purposely didn't read everytime shinji and trois were together.. But that was the fucking entire book) , there's also those scenes with kaworu implying that shinji is Adam and Rei is supposedly Eve

Paraphrasing:

"after his creation, man's first failure came because he believed the words of the first person made for him, the beautiful imitation, Eve." (Pic related)

"the Eve is no imitation. That's why she's been prepared. But imitations quickly melt into the real thing"

Both are Rei clones.

Quatre is a Rei clone who went rogue and "killed" shinji, she "has" feelings for him 'cause Trois (main Rei clone) has them too.

Trois is Rei III, in Anima she was supposed to control all the other clones.
There' s also cinq and six (cinq dies and six is unimportant, pedo bait)

Book 1, 3, 4 and 5 had moments like these

"before he could ask what she was doing.
She pressed her lips to his. The roar of the LCL faded into momentary silence."

"You can see me as Ayanami too." Quatre Said. (Pic related)

>lack of planning.

It really, really isn't. What we got in the end was what khara promissed when they first announced the official names of the project. movie 1 would adapt 1-6, movie 2 would adapt 7-23 and the first two movies would be a double release with a new story.

>Main problems now is Shinji blocked in the Eva. Anno planned a film with no Shinji, but then decided to adopt a timeskip.
He didn't plan a movie without Shini at all, he even says in the 2.0 CRC that Shinji is a focal point:

"Asuka’s scenes also ended up increasing, and when I finally noticed I was faced with the difficulty that she now seemed to be the main character.

— There’s an inviolable rule that [another character] can’t be more prominent than Shinji.

Anno: In the end, he is the main character. But, well, from a compositional point of view, if we have Shinji involved in even the side stories, well, [I thought] that could be done without problem.

— In the [finished] film as a whole, Shinji clearly stands out as the main character.

Anno: That was the result of an accumulation of a variety of great efforts. As we were talking about, in case it was poorly done, the implication could be the risk that [Shinji] might just appear abruptly only at the end."

In the end what we got was planned, but the way it ended up was slightly different. For example the first half of 3.0 + 1.0 (part D) was supposed to be on 3.0 instead of 3.0 + 1.0, in the doc, one of the biggest challenged was to integrade this part into the movie since it was so much different than the rest. Which lead it to be extended more and more.
>>
>>20807290
>it is evident they planned somehting else initially (ground fight against mark.6 copies)
Wrong, that whole post-scene script was just an exercise made with the team being teached by Ichiro Itano. those designs were placeholders and had only the idea of the 8+2 that now we have more and more idea of what where they intended to be but in the end they changed into the designs we got (8 + 2 never got a finalized design and we have lots of different ones)

And Adams are not the same thing as the Vessel of the Adams. There are three different elements here: Adams, the ships and the vessel of the adams. The real implication here is that they can somehow recreate an Adam since Mark.09 was destroyed in 3.0 and the one we got is Mark.09A

which isn't from the realm of possibility, since as you said, they were working with the third angel since 2.0. we know they were experimenting with angel-evas hybrids, the most glaring example of it are the Mark series. in 3.0 they are stated to be =~ blue pattern, not = blue pattern like the angels, being a somewhat hybridization of it.

>The ninth angel was an inside job?
again, it was already hinted in the 3.0 when her eye shines blue. And the thing is: this is much more likely a safeguard system to hold the last angel than an inside job, since for it to be activated, it needs the angel blood to alter the Eva.

>and embracing a new life with his wife as support (Mari)
anno didn't create mari, it isn't his wife, we have countless documentation of it already of these rumors not being true. "ah but his wife this", dude his wife is already on the movies since 2.0, Rei is reading her books, other ares reading her books in 3.0 + 1.0 and she even worked with the designs in the movie already (tsubame).

People get this whole idea of shinji = anno and mari = moyocco and totally miss the point since we have extensive documentation of not being the case.

And even I have my gripes with contents of 3.0 + 1.0 but this isn't it
>>
>>20807364
Do you know that Kaji and Kaworu take control of Nerv after the 10th angel?
>yes because it was shown in the movie lol

> Do you know thst Kaworu's corpose is being controlled by entry plug and acts as a pilot of 13 in Final?
Yes, but you don't even need twitter or interviews for that since it was a cut content in the 3.0

We see kaworu get blow up but his A.T. Field protected him from the blast and he regenerated, this is the part where Shinji learns that he is an angel. But Kaworu explains to shinji that he must die because he was tricked by Gendo. This was cut from the final version just like many other stuff (did you see the date from my last post, where the arms in 3.0 + 1.0 are already designed and finalized, dating from 2011, but in the 3.0 they went with the RS hoppers instead and later reused it in 3.0 + 1.0

But kaworu's situation is already implied in the movie since 13 is a dual pilot system and remains of even more cut content are shown in the image (13 had a piano styling of controling it , giving all the piano content 3.0 even more sense)

The real problem is that 3.0 was a production nightmare and it affected shit from then, we can see glimpses of what was intended and how it was altered, but the structural story remained overall the same, but with these faulty bits caused by it.
>>
>>20809425
for real, im not the other anon, but I think the mp
mark 06 was a real thing because not only the image boards sometimes show evas who look like it in HQ scenes, but the Anno exhibition catalogue whre this pic comes from>>20809425 has art with notes stating that Mark 09 looks like Unit 0`s "advanced type" and that Unit nº13 either look like Unit 01´s "advanced type" or is meant to be the first "advanced type" eva, the same sheet has a rough sketch of a Mark 06 looking eva and the notes suggest if the Mark 07 series has to look like Mark 06 as a question, so its not strange that the idea of a mp mark 06 made it into the preview until years later they decided mark 06 wasnt gonna get addressed at all and making mark 07 some unexplainable lazy shit was better, evas with random chomping skulls that dont even fire beams and just fly towards nowhere lol, you would have expected them to strike the wunder or some shit
>>
>>20809425
the 9th angel thing was kind of addressed but not enough, deleted scenes in 2.0´s storyboard reveal both that and the Unit 04 incident were deliberate Seele machinations, first one to test the fusion between humankind and the angels through an eva and the second as a sacrifice to give birth to "something" clearly meant to setup the mark 04 series.

the 9th angel thing may have been somewhat changed in the last film since the way Gendou and Misato talk about it may suggest that it was more of Gendou´s plan but in theory its still feels like Asuka plays as much as Rei in Seele´s plans rather than Gendou´s who largely ignores Rei now and just uses the key and the spears to alter Seele´s plan
>>
>>20810164
You mean this page?

As for the design, I think it is just a placeholder. I went and found the tweet by Yamashita explaining that this scene was the result of a study session with Ichiro Itano who worked in 3.0 as CGI supervisor, note that as far as I know he didn't return in Shin.

https://twitter.com/ikuto_yamashita/status/1385253460199677954
https://twitter.com/khara_inc2/status/1144639039804280832

So for the design was just altered colors and it wasn't something final (just like this 8 + 2)

>>20810177
>to give birth to "something" clearly meant to setup the mark 04 series.
And it does. Something that few people ignore is the official name of the unit-04: Evangelion Next Gen Testbed-04, after it we can see evangelion on nerv's side not having to complaing about battery anymore, and even the design of it wasn't ever showed even in the scene where they remove all evangelions.
>>
>>20810334
yeah, the pic of mark 09 is covering the mark 07 rough, the question mark you see by the side is about if it should look like mark 06
>>
also its very interesting that these roughs for the heads are consistent with the image boards, Mark 09 type B head is indeed what shows up for the last battle and the rough of the infinity´s head is also used as is in the image boards, so a couple of the mp evas that kaworu shows shinji are identical to mark 06, later imageboards show more nondescript mp evas so maybe they changed the idea by then, who knows.
>>
the underlined word covered by the pic is Mark 07 series so it was always intended as a mass production type and what the assembly line was for when they made the film, they even show the rifle boxes being transported so it weirdly just fits too much with the preview.

The idea probably was to have an additional action scene where the mark 07 use their A.T. field to lift the black moon, but its kind of redundant when you can just handwave it like they did later.

I read this manga series about movies and the Shin Evangelion chapter really managed to capture the feel of it.

There's a chapter covering the TV series and old movies, and then later on when Shin came out when covering the new ones including Shin. Characters who got heated up and discussed the series and other movies a lot are asked about their opinion of Shin and all they have to say is "it was good" and that's it. They have nothing to say about it except for one who hates it because she's a fujoshi.

Shin isn't a bad movie and if pressed further I'd say it's good, but I have nothing to say about it.

The previous stuff had a sense of it being about a world and the characters in it, with mysterious things you want to know more about. Even though Shin does try to do that with dumb shit like "Maria of Iscariot" it doesn't feel "real" at all. Despite it ostensibly being a sequel, it just feels like it doesn't build on or continue from anything that came before, and nothing in it really matters. It feels like watching a metaphor of Anno talking about how he got over depression or something.

Be that as it may, we clearly see Mari in the movies in flashbacks of Shinji as a baby with that whole crowd of the previous generation, and conversations with other adult characters make it obvious she's a contemporary of them. She doesn't have the exact backstory of the manga Mari, who was in love with Yui and got NTR'd, but she's still clearly an adult who's been stuck in a teenager body for some reason.

That's wrong. His name isn't anywhere on it, but Yamashita talked about it in interviews saying that he discussed everything with Anno and everything was approved by him. That's not to say any of it is canon of course, but it does have input from him and have his blessing. IIRC some of the important world stuff in Anima like the counter-Earth was Anno's ideas, inspired by some Ultraman thing.

>Key of Nebuchadnezzar
it was stolen by Kaji from Bethany Base and given to Gendo. At that point it symbolize Kaji's first betrayal of humanity.

It's used by Gendo to shirk his humanity and ascend to some eva/angel tier.

This initial sin of Kaji's is the motivating factor behind the shenanigans of his with regards to the Wunder and him stopping an impact -- his redemptive character arc.

If you're looking for more detail than that then this series probably isn't that great for you. Every origin ends at some pseudo-mysterious-mysticism crap that has no real answers, just unique associated symbols.
>>
>>20877340
Let's say they'll make an official ANIMA anime, evafags will already complain about milking them to death.

And if this series is anything that I suspect which is focusing more on mecha aspect of Evangelion it will make them seethe because Evafags never actually care about the mechas, they only masturbate to the characters yet tells anyone who ships Shinji and Misato to seek help.

It's like DC CW fans who don't care about capeshit only wanting to see Olicity.

Why? To me Evafags are those fans who don't care about mecha aspects of the series, only the characters and muh depression/deconstruction. A.K.A redditfags.

I love Eva, unfortunately the series is infected with the wrong kind of fanbase.
>>
>>20918683
Why do you keep talking about them? If you care so much it's because you go out of your way to interact with them. According to your definition there are no evafags present, so fuck off.
>>
>>20918695
Gee, my bad. I thought Eva fans here hate them as well so it's okay to vent about here, considering from what I've seen even /m/ users tend to hate Eva.

But you also act like you're personally offended.
