While I didn't HATE it, the movie as a whole feels almost pointless. It does absolutely nothing aside from serve as a really long prologue for the next movie, and ending with yet ANOTHER Impact event feels cheap as hell. It's by far the weakest of the Rebuild movies.

3.0 is a jarring film, but I think it keeps perfectly in line with the sort of dark bait-and-switch scenarios of the orginal series (following up on where the previous film left off). I also think the film might be a blatant statement on the adverse relationship Anno has with the franchise by now - it's never been a "good" relationship, but considering the stress making the film apparently caused him, I think Anno is fighting to get out of a rut.

I don't disagree, but that doesn't excuse the utter lack of substance the film has.

Also, I'm pretty sure EVERYTHING Anno works on causes him stress. Working on Shin Godzilla did it, too. One has to wonder why he's even still in the business.

I agree, Anno gets depressed on nearly every project since the first Eva which makes sense because he createsthis world with depressing things happening to all the characters.

Really? I thought Shin Godzilla was actually a stress reliever for him. At least from what I read.

Same here. He straight up said, "Godzilla saved me" from the stress of Evangelion.

Yep, Godzilla is the reason he's now working on the final rebuild film.

I wonder how he's gonna explain all the plot holes. Like how was Asuka able to pilot 03 and why can Mari pilot 02?

No, he said early on in the production of Shin that it would be stress relief to work on something other than Eva. Later on he said the pressure of working on the movie was getting to him.

Just saying Godzilla pushed him to do Eva again.

(Dark humour incoming

To be honest, I'm fully expecting Anno to announce that 4.0 is almost done, and the very next day die from some random accident, and 4.0 is cancelled.

I feel like the EVA designs are getting progressively worse.
Honestly, I really want 4.0 to come out just so Anno can (hopefully) un-tether himself from the franchise once and for all. He's a talented fellow, and I'd like to see him do something completely different, if possible. He managed Shin Godzilla pretty well, after all!

How to counter other defenses? ......To be honest, I don't actually know quite where I stand on the franchise. I THINK I like it, but it's been years now since I watched the original show. There definitely seemed to be a level of content later on that was presented obtusely, so I thought at the time; so it hurt the entertainment value for me, if nothing else.

Almost verbatim how I feel. The new Eva from the trailer with the weird arm adjustment things looks like trash and I just want Anno to go work on things like Shin Godzilla or Giant God Warrior.

I like the Evangelion TV series, but the extremely irritating fanbase and waifu culture surrounding it has made me just not want to see anything else from the franchise. As far as I'm concerned, Eva ended with EoE.

Didn't his apartment once catch on fire, and he slept through it? Or was that just a meme? I dunno much about him :lol:

I've been meaning to get into this franchise, I just haven't found the time to do it.
