It’s not much, but at this point, I’ll take anything I can get.
Based on this 10-minute preview, Evangelion 3.0+1.0 will have spectacle to spare when it finally arrives in 2020.
Polygon’s Aaron Stewart-Ahn has written an excellent piece on the famed anime filmmaker.
Since its 1995 debut, Evangelion has become one of the most popular, influential, and controversial anime titles of all time.
The best openings offer condensed versions of everything that’s good and promising about the title in question.
The first Evangelion walks a tricky line between appealing to otaku without feeling like a shameless cash-grab.
Also: Alien civilizations, musical nostalgia, revisiting classic Christian albums, video games as digital literature, social media darkness, music’s ongoing devaluation, and removing advertising’s influence.
Even after two decades, the classic mecha anime series still casts a long shadow over the anime medium.
There’s also no denying that the series still remains a major cultural force in Japan.
Rebuild of Evangelion takes the original 26 episodes and revises and condenses them into four full-length movies.
More than anything else, Evangelion’s focus is on the hopes and dreams of its characters, as well as their fears and weaknesses, and their attempts to overcome them.
If you want to start getting into Evangelion, this is not, I repeat, not the place to start.
Neon Genesis Evangelion is controversial, action-packed, muddled, exciting, confusing, and maybe even profound in a way that most anime you see isn’t.
