General Rebuild chatting/commenting/spoiling, ho! Although getting spoiled would mean you hadn't already seen 2.00, and that'd be a travesty in itself. Go watch it, and then buy it and watch it again! Or just buy it and watch it since it's close to release.





So, anyway. DVD/BD release in nine days now. I actually got it on the 18th from Rightstuf and watched it with glee yesterday. It even more enjoyable since my PS3 didn't have the desync problem my computer did. As always, Rei made me very ポカポカ, just as Shinji made her very ポカポカ. And now I'm thinking of Rei going ポカポカ on Shinji, which is absolutely adorable. Hnng...!

Also, from the deleted scenes, I can only think that Anno is actually a fan of a Kaji/Shinji pairing.

I'm okay with that.

Oh, what are other Deleted Scenes? Any interesting ones?
1st scene:
Misato and the kids are on the elevator-train-ride-thing talking and Kaji suddenly enters and gives Shinji a wink.
2nd scene:
Ritsuko talking to a fully naked Rei after a bath, the towel is on her hair and not her body!! in her apartment while Ritsuko injects some liquid into her.
3rd scene:
Shinji and Kaji's quality time together with their beloved juicy and big watermelons. Oh, those watermelons....
4th scene:
NERV crew taking the long escalator to HQ while that girl lesbian about Ritsuko talks to her because she is in lesbians with her.

All in all, nothing much...

First, its been confirmed that 3.0 and Final will be two separate movies, they aren't going to air together like Death and Rebirth, or 25+26 (end of eva)

Second, was supposed to come out LAST summer but no news whatsoever, no updates or anything, i think by this time in 2009 there was at least SOMETHING about 2.0, but they can delay it all they want, more time TO FUCKING SAVE UP FOR FINAL BITCHES

Third, STILL
NEED
TO
GET
MY
FUCKING
HK
BD
GAHHHH
well hopefully will has job this summer so i can spend 70 bucks on a movie CUS IT HAS GOODIES, I NEED MAH GOODIES

Fourth, WHY THEY FUCK IS EVERYONE FUCKING DERE FOR SHINJI? KAJI, MISATO, KAWORU, ASUKA, REI, MARI, JESUS CHRIST!
GENDOU GENES DO NOT WORK ON WHINY PUSSBAG BITCHES


also, vewy surprised funi didnt screw up 2.22 packaging, although im still getting HK BD instead

Theocrass
March 20th, 2011, 03:03 PM
^ I guess someone didn't watch the same 2.0 as me. Shinji's characterizations vary, but at his heart he's a sweet, vulnerable boy. And there's nothing wrong with liking that kind of person. Just because he's not screaming about drills or frothing at the mouth doesn't mean people can't like him. Seriously, I don't get why he gets so much shit from fans.

lilithsama
March 20th, 2011, 03:06 PM

but F*CKING GOD

HE DOESNT DO ANYTHING BUT WHINE ALL DAY ABOUT HIS F*CKING PROBLEMS, JESUS CHRIST GET OVER IT! THERE ARE PEOPLE WITH WORSE ISSUES, OR THE SAME ONES DEALING WITH THEIR SHIT, AND ACTUAL F*CKING WOMEN
BUT NO YOU HAVE TO F*CKING SIT BACK AND LET MOMMY DO EVERYTHING FOR YOU AND KEEP GODDAMN WHINING
WE GET IT, YOURE EMO, NOW FUCKING MAN UP FOR ONCE IN YOUR GODDAMN LIFE

Misato and the kids are on the elevator-train-ride-thing talking and Kaji suddenly enters and gives Shinji a wink.

More than a wink! He goes, "I love you" along with the wink, giving everyone very confuzzled expressions. And then Shinji's dialogue when he takes them to his watermelon patch is so very suggestive. "Nobody's ever taken me someone like this before. I'm so happy!"

Oh, Kaji, you know how to seduce on your dates so well.



but F*CKING GOD
original series Shinji,

You mad?

Actually, why are you even ranting (twice) about him when you said yourself that 2.0 is much better? Calm down already, Jesus.

Hmm, I don't think there are any rips of the English dub floating around yet. You'll need to buy it if you want 'em. I prefer Japanese myself, but Eva has a good English cast.

March 20th, 2011, 10:23 PM
im a sub whore, so cant really say i liked/looked forward to the dub
although first time i watched it (the series) was dubbed
and did see 1.0 dubbed in theatres (with like 3 other people in the audience)

it think its like with most dubs, you have a few good actors but the rest are just ....yeah
no offense to Tiffany Grant, she does a good job, she just does not fit Asuka at all, or rather she sounds too old

new Ritsuko and Gendou were pretty.... too
although not like old Ritsuko and Gendou were great, maybe Im just more inclined to like them better since im used to them

eh wtv, i love the jp cast so~~

eddyak
March 20th, 2011, 10:23 PM
this is why Gendou abandoned his f*cking ass, cus honestly, I would too
Am about 80% sure that Gendo didn't actually abandon him, but sent him away cos he knew people had hated him back when he was in college. Yui was the only person who could stand him, and he reckoned he couldn't take it if his kid hated him too.

I'm pretty sure they said that in either the anime, or Rebirth, or EoE, or something.

Theocrass
March 20th, 2011, 10:25 PM
^ I heard it was because he didn't want Shinji to grow up to be like him.

lilithsama
March 20th, 2011, 10:26 PM
I was just ranting cus shinji pisses me off

but yeah it more so a protection thing/because he reminded Gendou of Yui, not that Rei doesnt but Rei is his actual link to getting Yui back, and Shinji is just a constant reminder of his loss

mfw I got my BD last week.

That flap on the cover is kind of pointless though. If it's to draw attention for people picking up Eva in retail stores, it fails quite nicely. It's not held back by anything but a removable rubber cement glob instead of some sort of velcro too, so it's kind of clunky in design.

Really? I thought Mari sounded just as good as her Japanese counterpart in English, and mind you, this is coming from a guy who prefers every version of Eva, including Rebuild, in Japanese over English by a long shot.

But yeah, I saw Rebuild 2.22 yesterday. Got it on blu-ray. This is my first thought: When's the next one coming out!? This is my second thought: SHINJI IS A MAN! I loved the last 30 or so minutes; pure, distilled epicness.

Funimation's packaging is not a favorite of mine. However, there's something about the packaging I have not seen anyone anywhere comment on yet, so, it looks like I'll be the first: you can feel Asuka's boobs on the back. Pointless fanservice, or welcome upgrade from the first blu-ray? I'll leave that for you to decide.

dun really know the reason, maybe i was worked up more?

i saw that it popped out
didn't know that tidbit
although pop out orangepeel texture paper tits, not really something i care about
this coming from someone who FREQUENTLY caresses her Asuka gachapon (still need to get a real figure of her, am leaning toward alter's test plugsuit, but hair is a little too brown, only thing that bugs me about alter, subdued colours)

Mari is not subdued. She's like, the most active pilot in the series in how eager to fight Angels, and invade your personal space. How can you call someone who decided to skydive into Tokyo 3 subdued!? :3

lilithsama
April 1st, 2011, 05:06 PM
like, her moe is subdued
shes not all hyper bouncy happies like Nono
shes more like calm, somewhat hrmm... tsun? i dunno
like she has more mature happy/active
where as nono just has that OOOOOOOZING moe

like mari would be the oneesama, not call anyone oneesama

and not just saying that cus Sakamoto does her voice

Fatuous One
April 2nd, 2011, 08:38 AM
Well, I can agree that they're different types of energetic. To make use of TVtrope's titles, Nono's more of a genki girl, while Mari is more a hotblooded/blood knight type.

But I still disagree that Mari is subdued at all, moe or otherwise.

lilithsama
April 2nd, 2011, 01:17 PM
hrmm she's not
as youthful? i guess

like not like old lady, but like she is a little mature, specially for her age
where as nono is more so immature

like fukui goes well with those immature roles

Oh, I don't actually care how long it takes them to finally release something, I just wish they would put some news out there. I mean, it's been almost two years, a "we're shooting for next winter" or "don't worry, Hideaki Anno didn't die in a tragic gasoline fight accident last year" would be nice.

Honestly I fell over laughing when that happened. "Why is Eva 01 shooting cross lasers from her eyes? Just what is going on?" It was just so unexpected, making Shinji and the other characters more stable and assertive is one thing, introducing new characters is another, and then there is this.

I still would never have expected it, I kept waiting for Unit 01 to grow wings or something during the TV series but it never happened so I had sort of resigned myself to the EVAs being more uh, down to earth? then the Angels.
Seriously that was more impressive and out there and over the top then Asuka's MURDEROUS RAMPAGE during the end where she was force pushing all those military vehicles with her AT field.

Edit: He grew back an arm completely out of an AT field. Seriously what? Also keep in mind the Angels are a lot more powerful in the Rebuild series. That thing survived a cruise missle more powerful (I assume) than the N2 mine (which are apparently obsolete at this point) Rei hit it with during the original TV airing. And then he just steam rolls it.

He didn't regrow the arm, he made one out of his AT field, lol.

And the geometric nightmare angel and the falling-out-of-the-sky angels were the most disturbingawesome. Fuck the strongest rejection type, it might be powerful, but it looks damn stupid. Diamondface was awesome, melting mountains and blasting cruise missiles out of the sky, and dropping-satellite-kun was seriously disturbing when it finally unfurled and there were those shifting eye-things on it.

Did you see the letters R or E at the front of grow? I did not think so. That is what I meant. Made grow whatever.

Edit: the "out of an AT field" was a qualifier that was supposed to let you know the difference between it and the usual EVA arm regrow trick.

Loved what they did with the geometry, orbital and the mummy angels though. So much cooler. Though I heard that they added traits from the helix thing and the bird angel into the mummy, which means we won't see them anymore =(

Most likely no
Gendou said (after Ramiel) there were 7 angels left
in 2.22 they offed 4 new ones (i.e. new to appear, so Clockiel though Zereul)
so 3 left

now if he counted 3rd angel/Boniel as part of that 2 left
1 of those is guaranteed to be Tabris

and (i doubt it though) he could also be referring to Lilith as one of em

so maybe no other angels besides Tabris

or only 1/2

i kinda think its only 1, might have something to do with Unit 8

although, yes he is different this time, just eh
like hes not close to getting over himself totally

pretty sure when the whole "oh yeah shes your mom" thing comes to light, hes not gonna be so stable

She's not his mom, they used some of his mom's DNA to make her, but we don't even know if it's enough to count them as related. Besides, she's only half-human.

And jeez, rage much? Yes, they're all child soldiers with lots of psychological problems. What do you even mean by manning up? Does he have to scream about drills every five goddamn minutes?

He's already fought several times, I'd say he's manned up from the beginning. I mean seriously, how well would you have done at 15?

yes he fought, but he whined and went all emo about it NEARLY EVERY TIME, thats pretty much what all of 1.0 is about
my main issue is that there are 2 GIRLS his own age who aren't bitching every 2 seconds
granted they have their own issues and aren't exactly normal, they still handle their jobs much better
Mari and Kaworu too, granted they are a year older than him, and Kaworu it would be odd not to handle it coolly, and Mari we don't know much about yet, both are pretty much f*cking protecting his dumbass

i think the best comparison would be Toji (series wise) yeah he didn't want the job, (and got totally screwed over), but he didn't run away or whine about it
he was disgruntled, and not happy with it, but 1 he actually did it 2 he didn't whine or bitch or "run away" 10x first

shinji made his decision
he needs to fucking stick with it

You'd expect there to be at least a few counsellors, or psychologists or something in the Eva universe. Shinji was neglected, Rei's practically a robot and Asuka's the most fucked up of the lot. Probably. Mari seems like her issues might laugh in Asuka's issues' faces. Because Anno is apparently incapable of making a kid who doesn't have severe psychological illness.

I still would never have expected it, I kept waiting for Unit 01 to grow wings or something during the TV series but it never happened so I had sort of resigned myself to the EVAs being more uh, down to earth? then the Angels.
Seriously that was more impressive and out there and over the top then Asuka's MURDEROUS RAMPAGE during the end where she was force pushing all those military vehicles with her AT field.

Edit: He grew back an arm completely out of an AT field. Seriously what? Also keep in mind the Angels are a lot more powerful in the Rebuild series. That thing survived a cruise missle more powerful (I assume) than the N2 mine (which are apparently obsolete at this point) Rei hit it with during the original TV airing. And then he just steam rolls it.

Slowpoke is slow. I just found this thread.

I feel they kind of ruined the Zeruel fight, too. I much preferred the original "AT Field Facilitated Arm-Graft" and the "Handwave AT Field Angel Shredding". The new eye-laser thing is kind of weird, but I will be honest, the "Ayanami wo Kaese!!" did make my pulse quicken. The Berserk Unit 2 is pretty interesting, but I think it will just be a one-time gimmick and not going to show up ever again.

Any info on when the 3.0 will be out? The first two were like one per year, and then this 3.0 just seemed to fall off the horizon.


EDIT:

And Asuka's eye patch, you know what's underneath it...

-Adam(s) Embryo
-Angel Embryo
-EVA Innards
-Whatever nasty stuff Anno loves to troll fans with

I remember there being something about Gainax no longer being involved with the movies. Does that have anything to do with it? Honestly funding doesn't seem like it should be the issue because seriously how could stockholders not be all over more movies. It doesn't make sense that they would pump all this money into merchandising and then not put enough into the fuel that keep the train running. It is like they forget that we will be willing to buy more figures if we have more EVAs and other things to make figures from (Asuka with eye patch, completely separate figure you will have to buy with the eye patch off).

Also your guesses seem safe, I was guessing her eye turned red ala Rei and Kaworu.

I liked how the Zeruel was a female kind of thing now, and honestly I even liked how Eva01 had a halo, and just slowly walked forward. Since this was a different production, it was cool to see them do something different, although I won't be the last to admit I fucking loved the creepy four legged crawl from the original. If I had any quarrels with how they did 2.0, it would be when 01 blew back Zeruel using its AT Field, I just didn't like that effect. I also wasn't a fan of how 01 pulled Zeruel towards it, with how they handled the animation it was even unclear as to how it happened. Grabbing the paper arm and yanking it towards was way more badass.

terraablaze
May 9th, 2011, 02:41 PM
Someone made the point earlier that the way EVA 01 "went berserk" was probably meant to be an antithesis to the berserk of the tv series. In the tv series it becomes an animal, in 2.0 it becomes a god. Instead of going from a slouch to all fours it transitions to standing up perfectly straight for perhaps the first time and then levitates, sort of supporting itself from the shoulders. Instead of going absolutely nuts and tearing into the Angel over and over again as quickly as it can, it makes very deliberate motions that make it look like it is in control of itself and the situation.

eddyak
May 9th, 2011, 03:34 PM
In 1.0, it becomes an animal, though. In 2.0, it becomes a god, in 3.0, it'll be a Gundam (lol Kaworu's floating Eva in space), and in 4.0, the Gurren Lagann.

I disagree.

The original "berserking" of Unit 1 is basically a demonstration of pure, primal maternal instinct. It's like you trapped a bear cub, and the mother bear comes mauling at you. The mother bear won't stop until you are dead, no matter how many times you fire your rifle at her. I savoured every second of the original episode precisely because of this.

Rebuild 2.0 totally changed this. Now it is "Shinji being totally badass", with the subtleties of the original episode completely removed. Don't get me wrong, I love the updated effects and the butter smooth animation, but the emotional impact is totally gone.

Now it is just "Cool, Shinji is badass", instead of "Holy shit, is that Yui going bat-shit insane there? Holy shit, did she just tear the Angel up and eat it?"

Shinji didn't go bat-shit insane. He was in utter despair because everyone was about to die and there was nothing he could do. Yui just reacted to that.

The 400% synchronisation was not "God-tier berserker rage". It was just that the pilot had been physically assimilated by EVA. It was probably an act on Yui's part to protect him, because Zeruel was about to crush the EVA's core (and the pilot plug is in the core).

The original episode was all Yui. The Rebuild version was all Shinji.

I am almost positive that melding your personalities together does not work that way. Besides Shinji hates everything and would be quite happy to destroy it all, just because he was in despair at one moment doesn't preclude him from throwing a hissy fit.

Seele pairing.

Half of all the women in the world: Did someone just touch my butt? You are so dead!

Other half of all the women in the world: Omigod its Japanese Edward as a child! He's so cute!

Shinji: What's going on? And why are there so many boobs all around me?

All the men: He's so dead once we get our hands on him...

I was making a point about how all Edward really does is sit around and mope about not having a soul, while when Shinji reaches the melting point he basically either goes bat shit insane or sinks into a depression. And if he becomes god, he'll probably turn sparkly anyway...

And that's what he'd look like at that point to a Twilight fan. In reality he's more of a Japanese Harry Potter with worse parents and no emotional support. (opinion)

Modern society expects men to be macho and shrug off all emotion. If their mothers die they only cry a single tear, at the funeral. And when forced to pilot a giant soul-munching robot, they simply nod and do their duties.

Girls on the other hand just have to cry once and they get hugs and ice cream.

Or maybe it represents that they are all artificially born in some way?

In the manga, which is written I think by the original character designer (and is therefore sort of canon? or maybe it uses ideas that never made it into the show?), Asuka is a test tube baby created by artificial insemination in an attempt to breed a genius.

Can the particular character mean anything that seems significant?

If memory serves, it was to develop a theme where the main female cast were named after Japanese battleships.

yeah all the characters surnames come from ww2 warships except for Toji, Kensuke, and Hikari , but what makes it stand out is Asuka's name change for the new movies.
Souryu still followed the ship theme (for that matter so does Langley and Illustrious.) but they changed it to the name of another ship that has Nami in it
it just makes me think there's some significance to it
