    It's peak when you're 14. The older you get you kind of realize most of the symbolism and meaning behind the show is just the director thinking it looked or sounded cool. It's deeper than mindless trash but not by much

      This is a myth, btw. Anno didn't even write most of the show. There's no statement on Christianity, but nobody claimed that in the first place. It uses christian imagery to enhance the apocalyptic feel of it all, just because it doesn't go deeper than that doesn't mean that it's "worthless".

        Replying a second time but the show has plenty of thematic depth, it just has nothing to do with religion. If someone says evangelion is shallow that's fine, it's when they say it's shallow because it's christian symbolism is only there for aesthetics they reveal themselves as a moron because they managed to miss the actual themes of a cartoon about teenagers piloting robots. Even when the final episode is literally all about will and representations they can't point to anything other than the crosses to explain why its "pretending to be deep"

          There ARE undeniable religious influences in the show that extend beyond imagery. It's not a deep dive analysis, or any analysis at all, on them, but if you can't see the thematic parallels between the show and Gnosticism/Kabbalah and Buddhism then you're a pleb.

        the thing people dont seem to understand is that the religious imagery in eva is used symbolically, just not as an explicit christian ones.
        angels dying and blowing up into glowing crucifixes is not meant to be a direct statement that jesus had died for your sins, it is meant to simply evoke symbolism of death and transcendence. the big spear being called the “lance of longinus” is not meant to imply it is the literal lance that stabbed jesus, but that it is a weapon capable of penetrating gods.
        that said there are several instances in the show where its pretty clear that anno did at least have some cursory knowledge of abrahamic occult ideas/theology.
        the showmakers including anno intentionally tried to distance the show from these ideas due to certain happenings in japan around the time

                It is very mature and it's also for 14 year olds. I love NGE and people of all ages can enjoy it if they're mentally ill enough but the shows core thesis is obviously directed at people the age of the characters. Japan is a bit ahead of the west in terms of social degradation and Shinji and Asuka were apparently based off how he saw Japanese kids at the time. Sullen depressed schizoid boys afraid of getting close and girls afraid of being abandoned or unvalidated, they're the next generation so they inherit the earth at the end. That's basically how zoomer kids in the west are now which is why I think it's had a resurgence in popularity and appreciation in the last few years

                A really weird thing to say. It's enjoyment doesn't necessarily have anything to do with mental illness. The entire point i was arguing about with that moron is that eva isn't for children because it absolutely isn't. Teenagers can obviously enjoy it.

                >the best material from shows like Escaflowne and Cowboy Bebop in terms of production quality.
                oooooook ok ok what's this revisionism?
                I'll admit I haven't rewatched Escaflowne, but Cowboy Bebop's production is pretty much stellar through and through. You REALLY can't say the same of Eva.
                Both have sakuga moments but there's no shame in admiting Eva ran into the production wall more often than your other examples.

                That anon admitted it had production issues and never said it has the consistency of bebop. Can you read?

            I watched it first when I was 21 and in many respects less intospective and "media literate" (I hate how that term has recently become polluted as a leftist ideological term, but I purely mean in the Cinemaphile sense of being able to appreciate kino).
            I thought it was barely a 8/10 or 7/10, and didn't understand what all the hubbub was about.
            I watched Eva a second time as a 28 years old, and finally got why it was so appreciated. Everything is tightly written: from the social-psychological commentary, to the fact it's actually pretty hard sci-fi military fiction (e.g. the robots only being able to run for 5 whole minutes disconnected from a power source), etc.
            Absolute 10/10 after the second rewatch.

              Same here, it's curious on how often this happens with this series, i've seen so many people say this exact same thing that i'm genuinely convinced that anyone who hates EVA only watched it once and never tried to give it another chance by having a retrospective watch. Every series gets better on rewatch because you're not in a hurry to finish it and you can appreciate the small things you didn't noticed before, you also know what happens in the end so you can appreciate the foreshadowings.

      EVA is infamously a low budget anime because of the 90's recession, alongside Gainax's financial woes. That's why you watch it for the atmosphere, music, story and characters - which are still too notch.

      >girls are constantly objectified
      Because the show is aimed at 14 year old boys, in order to get them interested in women. Duh

      The show absolutely holds up, and EoE just builds on what was already good in the show.

        Dunno I just watched the dub. I had the DVDs years ago and watched it through a few times and even the series I bought on Prime screws with the dialogue. There's a scene where Shinji tells Rei she would make a good Mom in the original but in the Prime version he tells her she would make a good Wife. It takes on a different meaning in both contexts but him telling her she would make a good Mom is telling that he recognizes the familiarity of his own mom early on but also that she would be good at taking care of a kid. Telling her she would make a good wife implies that she would serve her husband well and almost makes it look like he wants to date her.

    I think it's divisive because you can read into the imagery mythology and uncover "meaning" (either intentional or imagined), you can just turn your brain off and see cool kaiju fights with sweet mechas or you can be put off by the boring scenes that are long and drawn-out and think that's what the whole show is. This is why it's such a popular franchise, you can consume it through several different lenses so it has mass appeal

    I always wanted to have anal sex with Rei. From the very first time I ever saw her cute butt on disply in an Animerica magazine, I never had any desire for her vegana. I wanted to sodomize her, to enjoy her tightest frickhole.

    I always hated Asuka. I have never understood the appeal of Asuka. Some feisty b***h with issues is unappealing. I delighted when Asuka was mauled by those white guy-things, because it was a fitting punishment for her being such an awful character. I don't care to sympathize with Asuka.

    Original Cinemaphile was always about Rei. Rei is where it's at.

          You can enjoy anime while also acknowledging how brain dead moronic it's plots are. No shame in that, anon.

          I was 11 or 12 and I was still the type to hump a pillow like a dog. I was maybe too young to be doing it but I was watching Evangelion. I remember craning my neck hard to see this image on my monitor, body flat on the musty floor except my ass slightly raised with a pillow under my bare wiener. I still remember the stale smell of the carpet in my head. Vigorously, wildly grinding and humping my barely pubescent wiener into a throwpillow, pumping, fricking, rutting like an animal, thinking of the smell of that carpet still gets me excited, and my own sweet smelling sex-sweat the kind that only comes out when it's worked it out by fricking. I stared at the perfect curve of Misato's ass in this image, her stomach, where the skirt ends at her thighs, how bad I wanted to frick a load into this older woman who is pure sex when I'd probably cum in my pants from just a tongue kiss with her. Eventually I orgasmed and looked down and saw my hard little wiener and the pillow wet with a modest little white puberty load.

          Is this pasta? I love Misato but I always thought her proportions looked kinda odd in that pic. Not that it matters, her face is enough to get me going.

    I'd say yes. I rewatched it some time ago and it hold itself together with high quality for the animation of the time, and I dare to say it's better animated than the reboot.

    Also, get ready for heavy "speculative reviewing" from people with arrested development that spent a long, long time thinking about it.

    Also, there's no better girl. If Shinji had a spine he'd frick everyone and the doctor and drive his eva somewhere else with women that aren't full of themselves and/or are actually human.

    Watch or read Eva analysis, I think it's on YouTube or something. Ignore the religious symbolism and pay attention to every other little detail. It's very kino and peak show don't tell. There's very real basic meaning behind all the other symbolism, trains and shit. The show knows it's about a spergy kid.

    The religious symbolism though is just there to look cool, but it also works well, because it's goal was to show that we are fricking with shit so advanced it's not even technology is magic tier anymore. But yeah ignore it.

    This show was iconic for depressed 14 year olds in the 2000s. Cowboy bebop is better. have a nice day if you still unironically defend it beyond it being culturally iconic, which is all I will grant it.

      This latter one is kind of why I dislike evangelion so much. Scenes like that showed so much potential for some real deep cosmic horror, and then the show insists on [congratulations shinji] instead whilst ensuring all the actual worthwhile plot stuff is completely lacking in depth.

        the screeching/wailing with strong winds and the illuminated giant figure slowly raising up out of the darkness was probably the best "apocalypse" scene ever made... until EOE came along and everything tumbled down.

      This is a fanbase problem, not an issue with the show. Autistic simpletons aren't capable of understanding what Eva is actually about, and so they vaguely drop terms like "symbolism" in order to seem like get it in internet discussions. This applies to people who try to criticize the supposed symbolism for being shallow as well - if they actually understood the show, they would realize that the entire discussion is missing the point.

    I bought the Bluray last year and watched it and EoE and it definitely lived up to the hype. Only problem is the last two episodes, you know why, and if you don't watch them and go right into EoE you have a masterpiece.

    I'd also like to recommend Elfin Lied, Rin Daughters of Mnemosyne and especially When They Cry while I'm currently into Akiba Maid War and really good so far!!!FACT!!!

      Elfen Lied
      RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne
      When They Cry

      While Akiba Maid War is shaping up to be among this list!!!FACT!!!

      My journey into Anime only started in 2017.

      Up until then I had only seen Akira and Ghost In The Shell, great movies but not enough to get me invested as i only saw most anime as stuff like Speed Racer and Astroboy.

      But the combo of Ghostbusters 2016 and Star Wars The Last Jedi made me search for new forms of entertainment as it was clear that Hollywood had an agenda to attack white straight males by weaponizing our beloved franchises and I.P.'s and using them to hurt us.

      I was soo fricking disgusted by just how much hatred was put into those movies and their publicity into attacking the fanbase, so I wondered what could I get into and thought to give Anime a go, but where to start?

      I knew Cowboy Bebop was a legendary series and by luck it was on sale at my local retail outlet. I spent the next two days watching it and when finished I realized that I had seen one of the best things I've ever watched in my life!

      It sparked the fire to start looking into more Anime, both movies and tv, and haven't turned back. Since then I've found soo many wonderful movies and TV shows that have been more satisfying that most of the shit made in the last 20 years, especially the last 10 which has been designed to push identity politics and hateful rhetoric aimed at white straight males such as myself.

      Mainstream movies and TV shows are dead to me while they're soo desperate that they're now adapting every videogame they can get their hands on and fricking them up with deliberate malicious intent, mostly by women, blacks and ~~*them*~~ who only want to make us as miserable as they are as they're evil rotten fricking wienerroaches!!!FACT!!!

      Loved rebuild 1 & 2 but understand why people don't like 3 while 4 felt like Anno wrote himself into a corner and didn't know how to resolve it while also wanting to top EoE.

      It's also interesting how the original show/EoE mirrors Anno's depression at the time while the ending of the rebuilds reflects his happiness with Shinji finding love while I admit the final shot of Shinji and Mari running hand in hand while everything transitioned into live action made me tear up seeing them escape from that nightmarish alternative timeline!!!FACT!!!

          Im not sure what Anno's message is exactly
          Every character in NGE is so fricked up that they're rendered incapable of solving their problems, even as the threat of mass extinction looms overhead it never helps them band together but actually makes the pre-existing problems worse and most of them snap and self-implode at the moment of crisis. the third impact is a near universal ego death, so Anno's message is tacitly "these people are so fricked up that ego death is their only escape". But then shinji and asuka appear at the end same as they were before, with their fricked-up selves intact.

          if I have to guess the message, its "humans are fricked up but that's part of what makes us beautiful, asking for a perfect existence is the same as desiring non-existence". Bringing shinji and asuka back at the end is basically saying no matter how hellish & tragic the events of the story were, they were all worth it, because human existence is naturally fricked up to some degree and we just have to embrace that in order to live. a lot of the suffering in NGE is because everyone is so terrified of accepting reality so they bury themselves in copes that end up making it worse

            >Im not sure what Anno's message is exactly
            It was about embracing each other, as they snap and self implode they isolate themselves and it's only in that final scene Asuka actually shows Shinji a sign of affection. It's much more blunt in the original ending, you only exist in relation to others, you have to endure the pain of the other hedgehogs spikes if you don't want to freeze to death

            At least that's how I interpreted it, there are many ways you can see the primordial soup. You could see at as symbolic of death or escapism, but no matter what you interpret as, choosing to remain apart of it is choosing to run away from dealing with the pains of intimacy, so Shinji choosing to reject it is him choosing to embrace other people

              Yeah that makes sense. I think as the show progresses its a downward spiral because they decide their real self can't be shown to anyone, so they endure the pains of isolation & loneliness and over time they just spiral and ruin themselves.

              The important message I got from NGE is that everyone is messed up in some way, we're all incomplete inside and need others to help us survive. People will pretend on the surface everythings normal but it's a sham, we're all lonely and in need of validation and help, otherwise we wouldn't talk to people. Everyone just pretends that they're a confident and healthy chad but most of us are that way deep down

              [...]
              It is very mature and it's also for 14 year olds. I love NGE and people of all ages can enjoy it if they're mentally ill enough but the shows core thesis is obviously directed at people the age of the characters. Japan is a bit ahead of the west in terms of social degradation and Shinji and Asuka were apparently based off how he saw Japanese kids at the time. Sullen depressed schizoid boys afraid of getting close and girls afraid of being abandoned or unvalidated, they're the next generation so they inherit the earth at the end. That's basically how zoomer kids in the west are now which is why I think it's had a resurgence in popularity and appreciation in the last few years

              >Shinji and Asuka were apparently based off how he saw Japanese kids at the time.
              Also, the show takes place in a world where humanity's numbers have dwindled to almost nothing. Feels like an obvious allegory to Japan's dwindling numbers.

            There are several, but for EoE specifically, the message is that you cannot accept love without also accepting the possibility of pain. Likewise, you cannot give love without also accepting the possibility of inflicting pain. If you try to live a life without pain, you will also live a life without love, in isolation.

            Why is this unashamed Cinemaphile thread on the Hollywood board? Why is this allowed each and every day? This is fricking egregious.

    I remember watching this over a decade ago, when I was 16-17. As soon as I finished the series and movie, I found an analysis online and for one glorious moment of pure clarity, I understood it all and it made perfect sense. I have long since forgotten all about it and really cannot be bothered watching it ever again

    >funny how basic the animation is
    It contains some of the most impressive hand-drawn action sequences in TV anime history. Some episodes were handed off to a lesser production team, and look ugly and crudely animated as a result, but at least half of the series is top-tier by TV standards, ranking alongside the best material from shows like Escaflowne and Cowboy Bebop in terms of production quality.

      It is annoying how many people see the animation shortcuts that are taken in many episodes and then just pretend there aren't fantastic sequences all throughout.

      oooooook ok ok what's this revisionism?
      I'll admit I haven't rewatched Escaflowne, but Cowboy Bebop's production is pretty much stellar through and through. You REALLY can't say the same of Eva.
      Both have sakuga moments but there's no shame in admiting Eva ran into the production wall more often than your other examples.

        >Cowboy Bebop's production is pretty much stellar through and through
        Not really, there are several episodes of Bebop which are noticeably worse than the rest of the series in terms of art and animation.
        >Both have sakuga moments but there's no shame in admiting Eva ran into the production wall more often than your other examples.
        Lmao did you even read my post? I said that the better episodes of Eva rank alongside the greats of TV anime, not the whole series. And to add to that, even the worst Eva episodes are still serviceable, and don't even come close to hitting the depths of pure shit that you see in something like Nadia.

    iam 42

    rewatched it recently for the 4th time in my life.
    its a masterpiece. the pacing. the characters. the humor centric first half and the rather dark latter half. the mysticism that was created with the weird ending episodes and moves.
    i think often iam too old for animu by now. but its really just the quality going so low that i dont bother anymore.

    frieren, kusuriya and dungeon meshi reminding me that good current animu exists.

    still eva is a level of its own for a reason.

    I watched the series for the first for the lead up to EoE in theaters, and I loved it. Easily shot up to be one of my favorite anime of all time. Haven't watched Rebuild yet, and I don't plan on it for a while. Now that I've seen it, I can say that, yes, Asuka is, in fact, the best girl.

    Why is this unashamed Cinemaphile thread on the Hollywood board? Why is this allowed each and every day? This is fricking egregious. If your board of choice for your choice of media is garbage then just stop posting. Don't need to clog up another board. I appreciate your enthusiasm about this content but come on. Does this mean I can go to Cinemaphile and post about Dune or Sopranos? What gives? Do ANY rules stand anymore?
