Quote :
Neon Genesis Evangelion (Shin Seiki Evangelion: "New Age/Era Evangelion", often mistranslated as "New Century Evangelion") is a 26-episode science fiction/action/drama anime series which aired on Japanese television in 1995-96. In 1997, Gainax followed the series with the film Death and Rebirth, a Clip Show revision of the series which condensed many of the series' episodes into an hour-and-a-half timespan (while also expanding a few scenes). Death and Rebirth also featured the first half-hour of The End of Evangelion, a full-length movie that brought the story to a much more definitive (but by no means less controversial) conclusion than the television series did.

In the year 2000, a global cataclysm known as Second Impact changed the entire world. The event annihilated Antarctica (which caused global flooding), shifted the planet's axis (which caused global climate change), led to half Earth's human population dying, and resulted in geopolitical unrest. Fifteen years later, fourteen-year-old Shinji Ikari finds himself summoned to the fortress city of Tokyo-3 by his estranged father, Gendo, for a single purpose: to pilot a Humongous Mecha called an Evangelion and battle physics-defying beings known as Angels, which threaten to destroy what remains of humanity (though the show does not explain exactly how they plan to do so, and for what reason, until much later).
Above excerpt from TV Tropes.

So...let's discuss it? Especially the two endings(The TV series ending and the movie ending).

Why do you think Shinji tried to strangle Asuka at the end of EoE?

Well, the anime was made as the director(Hideaki Anno) was going through therapy. The later half was basically him becoming more insane.

Plus Evangelion wouldn't be quite Evangelion-like without the mental stuff.

So, now that the DVD for 3.0 is out, the subs are out, chatbox broke on me, and Ali seems to have seen it, what are your reactions to 3.0? Put spoilers in spoilers, because pretty sure not everyone saw the (absolutely shitty) camrip or the actual thing.

Well, if nothing else, 3.0 looks absolutely gorgeous in HD, especially if you have a PS3 and a big screen.

Let's see...Misato gives me a Kamina-ish vibe at the beginning, Asuka is still the tsundere, Mari is as weird as ever, Shinji is gay for Kaworu as usual as well. Overall I liked it. Only question is, will the preview for 4.0 shown in the movie actually happen? Or will Anno pull an Anno on us again?

Totally calling it, 4.0's full name is This Is (Not) The End
