Found another defect in the EoE cut. There's a scratch on Shinji's finger. Didn't even notice it when I took this screen.

I'm thinking he's going to be disappointed, the glow that appears around GNR looks to be a digital effect that's added onto the master and has clearly been rendered at a low resolution.
This is in addition to several other errors that make EoE photographically an absolute shambles.
I wish Anno had focused on making EoE a really good traditionally animated film as some parts of it are truly beautiful, instead of using tainting large parts of it with unnecessary digital effects as an experiment.

Revival is definitely a real film, it's not going to be much different though, it's basically just the ultimate versions of both Death and EoE stitched together in their true form, like a Game of the Year edition

Don't get me wrong I love some of the more bonkers scenes that're digital like the live action stuff. It's the bits like the glow around GNR, that could have been done traditionally, it wasn't and instead the film looks like arse around a good chunk of her scenes, which are absolutely iconic to the film.

I understand what you're saying. In my defense, I tried to go "all out" at first by asking Sheeky Forums for the Matisse font before even releasing an episode, to make sure the title cards at least matched. I'm not totally ignorant to these things, but I can't always be bothered, quite frankly, and I never intended to sell this as perfect either.

I'll be more mindful of future sign subs, but I must draw the line somewhere, especially in the later episodes; they're precisely why I didn't sub Eva originally.

It's why something like Death and Rebirth is panned and some people just totally skip it because "it's just a recap" despite the fact that it tells the story in a different way by being in a specific order and the EoE portion is slightly different due to being of an earlier stage of production.

Yfw Shinji's semen actually was static, and the universe simple moved around it the entire show while it remained stationary in both space and time, an anchor where every time line converged, and event that was unavoidable.
Yfw the universe revolves around, and was created by, Shinji being fucked up. Shinji was so fucked up that he created a singularity of being fucked up that altered the course of space time, and proved the theory of determinism forever.

That's the problem.
The cells themselves were phtographed onto 35mm film, if you look some of the screens from EoE look amazing and have incredibly sharp detail.
Hell even the TV series on 16mm looks great a lot of the time.

Some of the cells look to have been scanned(around GNR especially) and then had digital effects added, these have then been photographed onto the film.

So 4K would easily look great for EoE as 35mm can be scanned up that far and still look good, however the frames which have been put in the film from a low resolution digital source, like the GNR ones, can never look good as their source resolution was too low.

Kaworu, grinning and looking back at Naoko as she destroys the life of a young child. Idk, I thought it would symbolize something bigger and darker.

Maybe Kaworu representing the devil and using Naoko to do the devil's(Adam's) dirty work to kill of Lilith (innocent young child) in order for Adam's children (evil) to spread all over earth. Kaworu looks at Naoko, letting her know she's going to hell, and Naoko kills her self out of regret.

I realize this, my point is that by never really directly stating anything, you can never really be wrong.

I know that Rei is standing in the street, but the mechanism of why and how that happens is never brought up. I was just using it as a common example to prove a point, which is that because Eva leaves so much up to viewer interpretation, instead of exposition, it is harder for it to be incorrect.

See: power levels in Dragon Ball. By giving them a number, you can easily see that they don't really compare at all beyond "Dis wun is bigguh dan dat wun"

The scale is there, but meaningless.

@Spazyfool
Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the most mediocre animes I have EVER seen.

I watched this when it first came out, and I wasn't overly impressed with it to say the least.

The story is okay. The idea of earth being assaulted by unknown, quasi-supernatural/technological beings is one that has been handed down through the years, the most famous example being The War of the Worlds (which wins hands down by the way).

Ayanami Rei was okay as a character, but what on earth possesses everyone to raise Ikari Shinji to almost godlike status? The guy is biggest loser in anime (with the exception of Makoto for School Days - Nice Boat), and one of the biggest losers I have even seen in ANY story since Thomas Covenant. I honestly found myself wishing he was a real person so I could smack some sense into him. I've heard it mentioned that he is the most realistic character in the anime, and I have to wonder what planet the people who say such things were born on. I mean honestly.

This character is THE MAIN REASON why this anime was mediocre. NERV is a military organisation whose SOLE objective is the protection of the planet, by whatever means. This being the case, WHY THE HELL is Ikari Shinji the main focus of the story? He doesn't want to pilot an EVA, and doesn't want to fight. Any self respecting organisation WOULD HAVE FOUND SOMEONE MORE WILLING AND MORE ABLE to do the job. There's such a fuss over how special Shinji is, but surely with 6 billion people on the planet there would be someone better equipped for the job.

The most believable character is Asuka Langley Soryu, as her reaction to Shinji's ineptitude and cowardice is similar to that of any reasonable person.

I'm not going to mention enjoyment as I've already made it clear that this was mediocre at best.

I know that Rei is standing in the street, but the mechanism of why and how that happens is never brought up.
Because she became an omnipotent being during EoE that could exist before and after her own death, which is kind of why she appears in nearly exactly the same way to so many people during human instrumentality.

As for why, that's more just speculation, but seeing as Rei has such an interest in Shinji, she's probably just going back to observe him or something, at that point she's basically a god so it's sort of silly to try and decipher her motives. That's sort of the point and a lot of what makes it work so well.

I'm pretty sure NGE was just 2deep4them in general and they got pissed off they didn't understand it and so they called it "mediocre at best" despite having almost nothing bad to say about it outside of "I hate Shinji" and some poorly formed, post hoc reasoning in an attempt to justify their irrational hatred.

Their children have no clue of anything, except for the manchildren of seele and gendo. They are threatened and scared without mommy.

They didn't lie about shit user. They told him where Adam was, they told him about Angels and Humans and said Angels were the successors of the white moon and true successors of the earth.

That's a fact, and I don't have time to argue about it.

This is canon, now move on fanwanker. You're extrapolating from a scene versus accepting the scene that shows you the facts and tells you it as it is.

@Bidwell
That brings us back to the point that it's amoral to do so. It's causing pointless suffering, for one. You can just cut people on the streets because the wound will heal by that logic, or cause suffering because there's a way to heal it.

Transferring her between bodies is most likely harder than healing the one she is, but it definitely wouldn't be amoral to kill her and transfer her soul.

It is super easy to kill someone painlessly, if it causes no damage to the psyche it's fine.

Also, at what point did you decide that NERV had problems with morality, because very few people give a shit about the pilots wellbeing, beyond them being able to function. This is a central theme of the show.

Kaworu says once "I'm similar to you Rei!"
that becomes the Kaworufag mantra to apply everything related to Rei onto Kaworu

Kaworufags are so desperate for attention and character that they suck it out from other characters. You're like leeches or vampires. Go get your own characterization, stop mooching for christs sake.

SEELE was upfront with Kaworu, they told him he was an Angel and didn't restrain him. Rei doesn't know what the actual fuck she is and is told literally nothing, if Kaworu was truly like Rei then he wouldn't know shit.

Everything Kaworu did was in full knowledge or as full as you can reasonably get, he didn't fail or go full retard because he lacked anything. He is just written to die because that's the cliche. A plot device, and giving him character-related reasons for that is the real fanwank here, and stealing it from other characters is worse.

I bet that if he even just glanced in Misato's general direction you'd give him an electra complex or something.

Because they're both Angels in human bodies.

Kaworu knows that, Rei doesn't, and therein is one major difference, Kaworu is in comparison to Rei spoiled and pampered, getting to know everything he needs.

In NGE it causes damage to the psyche, as Rei shows. They don't want that to happen and it's amoral to cause that damage wantonly.

I don't think NERV gives a shit about morality however if they treated her as disposable it'd cause a shift in the way they treated her and would be a pretty big red flag to SEELE and other members of NERV.

The transfer process also sounds like it's probably really difficult and I imagine that putting the soul of Lillith through too much is going to cause some proper bonkers shit if they do it too often.

Yeah user, sorry but you're fucking retarded. Either on purpose or you're trolling.

Did you NOT take into account who says that and why? In ep 24, when Shinji says it it's because he sad he killed Kaworu. He killed someone who was like "him and Ayanami", in other words, their common denominator is being a living being, angel or human. They're conscious and live.

When Rei mentions it in ep 25, it's done when Shinji is tripping over himself with guilt. "Why did you kill him", oh he was an Angel, "why did you kill him even if he was like me" is the response etc..

Rei acts a little bit like the sobering part of Shinji's psyche here.

When Kaworu says it, he also mentions why: because they ended up in the same human form on this planet. The similarities are technical.

They obviously don't care too much. NERV is amoral and we know that. That's also part of the reason they fail so hard at crucial things.

But it's still a good reason, literally good too. Then there's the impractical side of killing Rei because even if she's got this awesome recovery system, feelings and knowledge still gets lost in he process.

NERV might be a bunch of assholes but even Gendo got broken up about Rei being in danger. Misato cries as well, but Misato isn't representative of NERV as a whole.

How do you explain that SEELE told Kaworu the literal truth in episode 24 then? He never showed any signs of being misinformed either. Just because Kaworu is a failure doesn't mean he was set up for failure.

Imagine the alternative, SEELE doesn't resurrect Kaworu and just let him float around as a dead spirit. They did resurrect Adam into Kaworu, and then they apparently taught him things about their culture, told him who he was, told him about the black/white moon and their progenitors, this is all in episode 24.

Kaworu is in many ways representative of the worst type of person, which is someone who does evil/bad or fucks up despite having every opportunity not to do so. You give him super-powers, knowledge, freedom, time, and all he manages to do is attempt to destroy the entire human race.

Then especially not Kaworu because for Kaworu it's been a steady incline in appearances and status improvments since the introduction.

Speaking about this, I feel that Kaworu is very popular among little boys……I remember once, my friend’s son, a plumb primary school boy want my autograph. I asked him, “Who do you want me to draw?” He named Kaworu, because he is very handsome. He ask me to draw Kaworu everytime he meet me. He seems love Kaworu very much. I’m very happy about this. But what I feel is more like,“So this is what boys admire boys looks like.”
--Sadamoto, All About Kaworu Nagisa

Kaworu's fanbase comprises both girls and boys, a lot of young boys like Kaworu.
Obviously, this can't be because of gay shipping, so when Reifags say Kaworu is only liked because of the gay they are objectively wrong.
Kaworu's popularity is iconic all around Japan, it is no niche taste.
Just look at how referenced Kaworu is in other Anime like pic related, and all of his expies in other Anime.
Reifags need to get over their hateboner for Kaworu; he was a great addition to Eva and a really good minor character.

Episodes 25-26 were fucked because Anno had lost his mind and he didn't have time to think how to end it after he pulled Lilith literally out his ass in the last revision of episode 24 (which was always Adam until the recording). There was an actual interview that covered that Anno simply didn't know how to end it in episode 26.

Episode 25 he had most of the basics (rocks fall, almost everyone died) but he still had to work on the details of what happened in general. The original idea he envisioned in episode 26 was a confrontation between Shinji and Gendo which I suspect he's recycling for Rebuild.

That's why Rebuild is so fucking disappointing. Anno completely lost his touch. That they tried to "Pull a Kaworu" with Mari and the reaction was lukewarm at best shows he no longer has it.

It's just that Mari lacks any artistic value. She was added on it for marketing purpose and nobody wants to write her or reduce her to "let's try to make her likeable!" Nothing against Mari who is a nice character, but written badly. In contrast, there was a lot of thought and even self criticism to see if Kaworu came out fine or not, you get the idea that Anno and the staff cares and he has an actual impact within the story which... Mari does not possess besides vague phrases.

Fittingly, Kaworu hums classical music while Mari hums pop music. It's like the difference between art and between product placement.

She is but it doesn't really do anything for her character.
Like Kaworu has some really defined traits and is written quite well, he's mysterious but you can easily put him together after the episodes done.
Mari doesn't really have any proper identifiable character traits, the humming thing doesn't feel like one, it's more of a 'look how mysterious this is.
She's nice, but altogether quite pointless, I'm sure she could be used and I'm sure they'll find some kind of way to write her up in 3.0+1.0 that makes sense, but it will have taken 3(please Anno) films by that point with most of her character being largely worthless, instead of 17 minutes.

all these daily eva threads

I'm rewatching the dvds since the wait is killing me and the quality of the BDs is turning out to be not so much better than mpv/mpc upscaling with good algorithms
(I'm still downloading Sephi's EoE)

But I'm glad we are having constantly maxing out threads about the lore and encoding/typesetting.

With Mari, she's basically just there. The plot wouldn't change in the slightest had she been removed.
With Kaworu, his entire episode revolved around him; the concept of the final angel/boss being a human is part of what makes Eva so good and memorable, I can't think of any other way they could have made the climax had it just been another MoTW Sachiel-like thing.
Even in 1.0+2.0, the use of Kaworu was pretty good, setting him up for something big.
With 3.0, it all falls apart and just like Mari, Kaworu is just there and doesn't really do anything. They just dropped the ball on everything.

I thought it might have been something about her being older than she appeared, but nope, didn't go anywhere mysterious, she just knows stuff.

From what I've seen from interviews and my experience on Sheeky Forums, Reifags seem really obsessed with this idea of purity and of her being pure and innocent.
They seem to reject and ignore any indication that goes against this idea of her; I think Ikuhara himself mentioned this about Reifags in the 90s.

The theater release of Revival looks just the same it looked on DVD, I just got the BD.

Death & Rebirth looks pretty cool, but the tv version of Death(true) looks like shit only because the dvd is a lazy job:no anamorphic, interlacing.

Well, Sadamoto did that thing with her in the manga if that counts.
When Mari says to Rei Q, "Your original was a lot friendlier", some people think she's talking about Yui.

Yeah, extra showed her as 16 in 1998 and she's headed for a mystery project, I used to think maybe that later became Bethany Base. Not that I really expect manga to directly tie to Rebuild, where there was never a Yui Ikari at university anyway.

If you have nnedi or ewa_lanczossharp you can already do a better job yourself.

You have the archives set too?

Last christmas, I intentionally bought an unlicensed, highly-compressed release of the series to achieve that diminished effect.

I would be most interested in comparing the two.

I don't suppose you know of any difference between the Death in Revival and the original Death in Rebirth??

Because the picture I've gathered, disc 8 can replace both 6 & 7.
