has anyone seen this?

i keep occassionally catching the odd episode at random times on sci fi but am buggered if i can work out what it's about. it seems quite interesting, just slightly impenetrable. at least to someone who started watching it halfway through the series. can anyone provide a plot synopsis and say whether its worth sticking with or not?

i also thought it was a kids anime, given that it was on at lunchtimes. however, given the occassional bit of nudity and lesbian sex it's probably only appropriate for kids that have googled for Sailor Moon and ended up on a Pokemon Porn hentai site.

Its the only anime i have evah stand to watch and it simply fantastic u highly recomend watching it, though not from the halfway, the story is pretty much made on details and i think seeing it from halfway should really put a lot down

Is this the one with the Penguin? I think they battle these demons called "Angels" that are just generally bad ass, they destroyed half teh population of Earth or something like that. The kids of NERV are the only ones who can fit in the battle suits, is teh somewhat shaky premise. Yeah, I kinda like this one.

Its good because of the Title.

Mike Hanle y (mike), Friday, 13 September 2002 11:23 (sixteen years ago) link

Very impenetrable, even for those who have seen the whole series. But interesting nonetheless.

Vinnie (vprabhu), Friday, 13 September 2002 12:50 (sixteen years ago) link

It's deconstruction of the giant-robot genre is very well done because it dared to also include it's materialist support, the otaku community.

Here instead of using the feedback of their consumers and giving them the escapism fantasy they came to expect, the narration works on the fears of an antisocial guy and confront him to the other.

The "reality check" was recieved as a bravade by both fans and the industry! (But somehow I think it doesn't matter since the importance of Eva is now undisputed.)

The author being a Ûber-Otaku himself made his point eaven more twisted, isn'it?

They made a considerable research for this project; loads of references to theology, wwII, post wwII pop culture and it's avant-garde, history of anime etc so it makes it extra-fun for fans to talk about it and share interpretations. The 2 last episodes are fantastic, like a metaphysic of the anime. ANNO HIDEAKI rules! anyone've seen his latest stuff?

the Hegemon, Saturday, 14 September 2002 05:21 (sixteen years ago) link

classic for the fact that the fans were so outraged by the last two episodes that they demanded a film version delivering a more "traditional" happy ending, if nothing else.

jess (dubplatestyle), Saturday, 14 September 2002 05:33 (sixteen years ago) link

ah yes, the appendice movies...
at least they showed the Hero is a Wanker who shot his load looking at the breast of a comatose girl!

Shinji? I must see this movies

vic (vicc13), Saturday, 14 September 2002 16:51 (sixteen years ago) link

one year passes...
So anyway, I watched this whole deal, including the End of Evangelion movie. The series started out ok, but I kept thinking that I was too old to be watching this, and that all of the characters seemed dreampt up by some 14 year old kid (let alone the main characters actually being 14). But as it went on, and especially in the last movie, it got into some pretty out there things, kind of along the same lines as Kubrick's 2001. When it was over, I just stared at the tv for a while, and now I'm debating whether or not to go through the movie again. Except, since the message of it seemed to be that you shouldn't escape into fantasy to get away from real life, I don't think it's the right thing to do. WTF????

Also, the animation in that movie was probably the best stuff I've seen outside of, say, Fantasia.

dleone (dleone), Monday, 26 January 2004 13:18 (fifteen years ago) link

The last two episodes of the TV show ended up being the way they were because the studio had blown all of its money by that point. Reused animations cleverly disguised as "art," but very well done nonetheless.

The End of Envanglion was created later after the series became a huge success and they had funds to do a proper ending with mecha battles and so forth.

The creator of the series was battling depression at the time, which explains alot. He also admitted that the Christian/Kabalah references were just window dressing and didn't have any real bearing on the plot, which pissed me off (I guess its too much too expect the Japanese to have weird insights into Western Theology). Like a lot of anime, its not as deep as it first appears, just incomprehensible and filled with non-sequitors.

I think FLCL toppped NGE's animation.

..., Monday, 26 January 2004 14:16 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah, all the religious stuff, I wasn't too sure about. And depression, I guess isn't hard to believe, especially being that the whole thing seemed to say, "life is hard, deal with it".

dleone (dleone), Monday, 26 January 2004 14:24 (fifteen years ago) link

I tried reading the manga, and the prose in the first volume was just so awful I stopped right there.

just don't see it dubbed!!!!

i enjoyed it when i was about 12-14. i'd probably like to see it again sometime, but i'm in no rush. (this includes the end of evangelion movie et al. which i might be more into if this girl lauren didn't steal it from me. bitch.)

marmotwolof, Tuesday, 12 June 2007 23:55 (twelve years ago) link

I loved this series the first time through but when I tried to rewatch it, I couldn't tolerate Shinji's whining. I only got through a few episodes before I was muttering, "Shutupshutupshutupshutupshutup," uncontrollably.

Maybe it had something to do with having seen the ending. The end of the movie is a total cop-out, right? I don't want to give anything away (and I don't recall many details anyway) but I remember feeling ripped off.

@ one point in my lyfe i really thought this was the most wonderful thing imaginable. rewatching now ive got a new appreciation for mitsuru erm mitsato

jveggra va pbqr (Lamp), Tuesday, 18 August 2009 04:25 (nine years ago) link

lmao ya me 2 (that point in my lyfe being when i was 14 - perfect age for it really, since at no other point in ure life will that particular brand of narcissistic doom-angst resonate so distinctly)

imo it's best interpreted as an extremely hateful sequel to otaku no video - the whole thing boils over with anno's rage & disgust w/himself and w/his audience, which in turn casts a darkly funny light on the show's legacy, tho otoh i have recently come to understand that GAINAX is doing a series of evangelion movies w/the promise that it will retell the story in a more conventional and straightforward fashion, to make it accessible for a broader audience - i guess that says something about where anno's at in his life now (i know he got married a few years ago), or maybe it just means he has nothing better to do than remake gunbuster for the 93rd time

the scene from end of evangelion where asuka is eaten alive still gives me, like, emotions btw ;_;

a narwhal done gored my sister nell (cankles), Tuesday, 18 August 2009 05:12 (nine years ago) link

just watched the first two episodes and there are some moments of true beauty - the cut from shinji seemingly losing his battle with the angel to a blindingly white hospital bed and the "unfamiliar ceilings" title card is wonderful~~~ and the show has some of the best sound fx in any anime from the bestial groans of the eva in battle to all that perfectly calibrated silence

yah i watched it 1st when i was 13 and i really got sucked in to the alternating ~coolness~ (lol the shadowy cabal meets in a nite black room with glowing neon thrones) and ~heaviness~ of the angst and the alienation amidst this wonderful futurescape. but i think its still "good" or w/e maybe more nuanced than im giving credit for

jveggra va pbqr (Lamp), Tuesday, 18 August 2009 05:26 (nine years ago) link

the whole thing boils over with anno's rage & disgust w/himself and w/his audience, which in turn casts a darkly funny light on the show's legacy

even two episodes in every characters desperation to connect w/another human being is pretty fukken tragic but the amount of self-loathing that shinji feels is pretty lol considering hes the obv audience surrogate

jveggra va pbqr (Lamp), Tuesday, 18 August 2009 05:30 (nine years ago) link

the show has some of the best sound fx in any anime from the bestial groans of the eva in battle to all that perfectly calibrated silence

otm i always loved the way they would isolate the cicadas in quiet outdoor scenes

idk if it's good or nuanced but as someone who basically hates anime i appreciate eva for being so mean and hateful. it was the most influential anime of the decade, but everything it influenced took the 'wrong' cues from it - all the crap with the conspiracies and retarded plucked-from-a-hat religious shit was just window dressing for the 26-episode therapy session of one rageful manchild. that's probably why i liked the movie better than the series, which had a lot of bland monster-of-the-week filler episodes (tho i liked the show's ending fine), stuff like the scene where shinji jerks off over asuka's coma-titties has no room for extra interpretation.

a narwhal done gored my sister nell (cankles), Tuesday, 18 August 2009 06:14 (nine years ago) link

haha from here it seems like the most influential anime of the 90s was dragon ball but i def agree with everything else ur saying. eva was unique in how bleak and vicious it could be - watching the sub versions the dude who voices shinji's dad is so menacing and hateful its pretty great.

i guess id just add that eva still feels a lot more "artful" than most anime. its beautifully drawn and we talked about the sound but the editing is fukken aces and it less idk static or flat than a lot of cartoons imo. also i do think theres some nuance - its mostly pretty emo and yah "rageful" is really good word for it - but small moments like shinji sobbing in the cockpit of his eva after the 2nd battle in front of the dude that just knocked him out - there are some slivers of a more grown up empathy and distance in there

retarded plucked-from-a-hat religious shit

haha, this show will always have a special place in my heart, seriously

Nhex, Tuesday, 18 August 2009 13:29 (nine years ago) link

dragonball couldve been the most influential in america but as far as influencing other anime eva takes the cake. idk a lot of that was pretty by-the-book giant robot melodrama stuff - crying in a robot (the new 'crying in the club') is definitely well-worn territory imo. the 'moments of true beauty' u mentioned earlier were only there for budgetary reasons, ie. it's a tv production so there's lots of panning across still frames and backgrounds, which is why gendo spends half the series with his mouth covered. maybe the fact that eva gave license to every anime that followed it to also be 'artful' and pretentious makes me distrusting of those qualities in eva itself.

also ya lmbo anime imo

a narwhal done gored my sister nell (cankles), Tuesday, 18 August 2009 20:53 (nine years ago) link

'starscream ascendant', chapter 9 - transformers fanfic community — this is the only google result for 'crying in a robot'

thomp, Tuesday, 18 August 2009 21:05 (nine years ago) link

haha yah it wasnt that shinji crying in da robot was new ground but that the way it was shot and cut and the perspective of the two classmates (lol even drawn the O_O looks on their faces is a+) made it seem more, i guess, than the typical emo pity party thing. idk i thought it was pretty effective @ showing how alienated and ashamed the dude was - even if being alienated and ashamed is kinda de rigeur~~~

sometimes the "artful" stuff is pretentious lol the shot of a lone tennis ball in the rain but i think it works, generally. meh ive been liking it so far what can i say?

Well, the Chamber of Guf opened, and Adam and Lilith were there, and uh...

jmm, Monday, 22 July 2019 16:37 (six hours ago) link

the union of the original angels adam and lilith triggers the third impact aka the human instrumentality project. gendo had adam embedded in his hand, and rei was made from lilith's dna; this would've theoretically allowed gendo to control the course of the third impact so he could be reunited with yui. of course, what ends up happening is rei rejects gendo bc he sucks ass and instead unites with shinji and unit 01. the world ends and everyone sees the person they love the most before they turn into goo/lcl and are joined with the universal consciousness in the black moon cradled by rei, who at this point, being gigantic and having a thousand wings, is basically lilith. shinji falls through the dreamscape of his own unconscious, as documented in episodes 25 and 26 and in the second half of end of evangelion, the result of which is that he decides that even though existing as a human being isolated from the universal consciousness is extremely painful and full of misunderstanding and loneliness, he loved everybody so much he wanted to see them again (this decision also likely hinges on the conclusion of episode 26, where shinji realizes he's capable of loving himself)

pobody's nerfect

actually: i think shinji's separation from the mass of human consciousness was traumatic, all that isolation came rushing back at him, like being born again. that his violence is met with care and concern instead of hostility reduces him to tears. and then asuka's all "kimochi warui" about it. the ending is v ambiguous and hard to read tbh, i don't blame you

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:07 (six hours ago) link

gendo had adam embedded in his hand

I had to read up on a lot of the literal plot details afterwards, and had completely missed this. The moment where Rei absorbs Adam is also kind of awkward and obscure. Fortunately, I don't think the precise lore is really essential to see what's happening to Shinji.

The moment where Rei absorbs Adam is also kind of awkward and obscure

there's a lot of stuff in end of eva that occurs so quickly only a few frames of animation are expended on it. one of these is rei stealing gendo's entire arm. another is: if you watch asuka's "i don't want to die" scene very slowly, you'll see she has a pretty vivid vision of her own eyeless corpse full of maggots

yes! the first movie is almost indistinguishable from the first six episodes of the show but the other two movies get real wild, especially 3.0. however one of the more disappointing aspects of the rebuilds is that the fan service is even more obnoxious and gross than it is in the series, though this problem is also pretty isolated to 2.0
