Now onto Rebuild of Evangelion. Evangelion 1.0 sums up the first 6 episodes, with the continuity changed slightly, and the Angel fights given a massive makeover. I enjoyed it very much, and while it is very similar to the original, it sets the stage for Evangelion 2.0.
Now as for Eva 2.0...
IT. IS. AMAZING! This film seriously ranks among my all time favorite movies. It fully brings the Rebuild series into its own. It composes of roughly episodes 7-19. This results in many of the Angel fights being cut, but a couple new Angels are added as well, but the timing feels well-paced. It also addresses the show's polarizing aspects. The infamously broken characters are given some well placed adjustments. For example, Asuka in the original was known for being a rather narcissitic bitch with a very traumatic childhood. But in Eva 2.0, some of her more redeeming qualities are shown. The second half the the movie drastically alters the continuity with the original show, revealing that Rebuild will truly shine as its own work, instead of just remaking the original.Read more ›
After being an Eva fan since the release of the original series, I used to watch (and re-watch) every episode intently, fascinated by the multilayered plot, themes and amazing sound and visuals. What we have here with Rebuild 1.11 and 2.22 are a highly desireable and well received remake of the original series that, instead of simply retouching the original, attempts to 'retell' the story in a manner more suitable for a modern audience. There are new scenes, touch ups to original scenes, a new character, a fleshed out story with some slight alterations and 'new' angels. Anno and the Eva team have done this all to create a movie length feature which can summarise 8 or 9-odd episodes worth of material from the original series. While rebuild 1.11 stays quite true to the original, 2.22 beats its own drum. The story here was designed not only to give a greater background to the bigger picture but also sets up the story toward what will be a more generic type of ending we can expect from 3.33 (ie. no unanswered questions). There is less mystery and intrigue, character commentary provides more understanding to what is going on, and much of the soul searching, depth of emotion of the original has, obviously been sacrificed to cater for a much shorter feature time. I was surprised however to see completed redesigns of certain angels, which was fresh.
I have given it 4 stars because of its freshness, storytelling and attention to detail overall. Eva has never lost its appeal after all these years and brings an original and powerful story to the anime public.Read more ›
That being said the animation, CG, lighting, etc are incredible and I can't remember seeing anime action look so incredible in a long time. I watched the English subtitled version of this film and voice acting and subtitles where fine, don't know about the English dub but the voice actors are supposed to be the same from the TV series so they probably did a fine job.
Also in case you don't know this is the 2nd out of 4 films, so if you haven't seen the 1st film you will be lost and be prepared to want more once the film is over. This film I will recommend to anyone regardless of a preference to anime or not, this is a great sci-fi, action, and drama mixed together. I will make my friend who was angry by the ending that the TV series left us with watch this because it improves and clarifies the story the second time around.
The TV series in the end failed to tie everything together, still the TV series ranks in my Top 5 TV series ever. I can only hope the films complete the story. But judging by the first 2 films I would have to say they are right on track.

If I could recommend for someone never had seen a single Evangelion episode or any movies, I'd say watch 1.11 and 2.22 if nothing else. Great movies.

Easily one of the greatest movies of all time. Voice acting, animation, and music were all superb. Without spoiling anything, it takes a turn from the original series. Read morePublished 1 month ago by PoorAlbatross58

|If film 3 and 4 never get made it will be a huge mistake.||
If you have even the slightest shred of doubt in your mind that 3 and 4 will not be made, then you have no idea what a big deal this series is in Japan. That's all I got to say.

Since she heads all the evangelion productions herself. and SHE IS Asuka plus does most of the work getting it here........most likely.

|Is there any other anime like Evangelion?||
Some people would claim that Gasaraki, is an Evangelion-like anime. Personally I think they're quite different, but you do have your Rei Ayanami clone, and a deep conspiracy plot. These things alone don't necessarily scream Evangelion to me. A lot of the stuff that people claim resemble... Read More

|Eva 3.0's date announced||
I cannot wait to see it.
Surprised the Japanese economy has not held the film up indefinitely.
It is nice to know it is coming out even years later than expected.

When I originally pre-ordered it was 20 dollars. I don't see how someone can pass it up for 10 bucks. Madness!
