Deplorable in every way. Five stars.
I fucking hate 80-90% of anime. It's animated soap operas with even worse writing.
Giant robots help too
I heaved a big sigh of relief when I saw they weren't white.
Jet Bin Fever
Does it matter? Being Japanese doesn't really excuse this sort of behavior.
I remember the ending being a lot longer and it being awful and making my skin crawl.
there's two endings, or maybe three...and there will probably be another one once the remake 4.44 hits.
I forget if the depressing one was the original or if that was part of the "ending" movie thing because the above was a bullshit ending.
The ending where everyone and their dog dies is the movie.
Evangelion always amused me. You spend all that time watching it, trying to figure it out, and in the end they just give you the bird, say fuuuuuuch youuuuuuu, and take a giant shit on your shoes.
Then you have the obsessive anime geeks get down on their hands and knees, psychology book in hand, and analyze the turds from every which direction trying to validate the genius of the writers and justify their wasted time in watching the series. When in fact the writers just ran out of time and money.
Nah, if they ran out of time and money, why on earth would they have made two films (that's not mentioning the new films)?
I'm a firm believer that Evangelion's ending, and it's alternate ending, were just lame attempts to seem SOOOO DEEEEEEP by throwing together a bunch of random, incoherent senseless shit, instead of letting it end on a cliffhanger like so many anime series from it's era did.
And it worked all too well. I still, STILL hear the occasional neckbeard drone on about how it's the greatest series ever, anime or otherwise, and how anyone who disagrees just doesn't get it.
Oh god, it's 2013 and I've posted more than three words about Eva online. That's enough internet for today.
Dear denizens of Planet Earth: if your partner, or both of you, want to put something like this in your wedding or base your wedding around this, perhaps it is time to consider that one or both of you are not yet mature enough for marriage.
You say that, but my step sister got pregnant+married and they're both the social excercising types with jobs. I dont think the kid is one year old yet and they're talking divorce.
It's an odd choice for a wedding, but the message that life might be okay and that you don't have to hate yourself forever is rather upbeat.
6(?) DVDs and 20+ episodes. And my reward was this horse shit. Then I put "End of Evangelion" on my Netflix queue. My reward for sitting through that was more horse shit.
Lesson learned: never let legions of anime fans mislead you into thinking that something might be awesome. And ADV truly knew how to make the worst anime look epic in their old VHS trailers.
I don't know what to think about people engineering a live-action version of the horse shit ending for a wedding. It is.
