Sadly missed out on the original series... but lack of interesting titles this season made me go through the trouble of getting the first two movies. I lack the back story and have no desire to wiki it until after the final movie, whenever that will be. Good stuff! though the high budget animation is going to ruin all anime series for me...
Just wondering, how do the movies compare to the original series? And so far, which appears to be better?
IMO the Rebuilds are much more focused on the general themes of the series that develop as the original show went on. The anime originally had a few basic ideas and motifs that carried on throughout its run, but the things that it became known for didn't become fully solidified until the second half of the series and in the End of Evangelion movie. The Rebuilds focus themselves on intertwining these themes better with the early parts of the series.
Hey dudes, does anyone know when we will be getting an English dub of the new movie or were i can see an English sub version? Freaking love Evangelion, as i grew up it just ... spoke to me... not on a sick ass sexual offender kinda way.
