It does, in no way meet the production quality of End of Evangelion. How this could happen is an absolute mystery, considering he's been playing nothing but Shinji and Shinji knockoffs for the last 14 years, but somehow he botched his performance quite badly. Welcome to the Evangelion subreddit. Except for one or two glaring differences no drastic changes have been made, but the hour and a half the movie takes is filled with some fascinating makeovers that'll be interesting for the old viewers to spot - and easy for the new ones to grasp. The story itself is quite simple, they are battling to stay alive, but it goes beyond this simple plot, into the lives of each and every character —what drives them to keep surviving, keep living and what has created who they are right now.

Look what we can do! Everything is a sight for sore eyes from the intricately detailed backgrounds to the choreographed robot fights.
A new generation of fans, and old alike, are revisited with a revised and, well, rebuilt version of the legendary anime, the aptly titled Rebuild of Evangelion. Another interesting part of how the original series was directed was how rarely they used background music, often opting for silence punctuated only by the cicadas. Soon afterwards, Shinji wakes up in hospital and is officially instated as the pilot of Eva-01, the Third Child. And they should be excited, because it only gets better from here! With the fate of the world resting on his shoulders, how will the boy Shinji fight? Yoshiyuki Sadamoto provided character designs for the film, while Ikuto Yamashita provided mechanical designs. The sound does an effective job of enhancing each theme provoked by the series. Also, this really isn't an issue, but as such a fan of the original series, this new movie set will never replace the original.
Now flash-forward a few years and now said man is an accomplished director who is credited for making one of the most influential mecha anime to date. Shinji constantly battles his depression and fears while also trying to find motivations behind his need to pilot Eva 01. By the words of TvTropes, a deconstruction usually means applying a more real-world causality to an idea or concept. The text at the end of the trailer reveals the release date for September 2007. There were a lot of long, atmospheric shots that helped to build the tone of the series, and here, they're gone. More information can be found at its website. So that's pretty much the premise of Evangelion 1.
All's right with the world. Doing this scene chronologically, the movie gives us a false sense of comfort with Evangelions going berserk. I just have to see how this series will unfold. But unfortunately it was not so. I like the characterization of Eva, and I only took off one point for two reasons: Touji and Kensuke have less screentime, and Asuka has yet to appear. Since it's my birthday today, I will call the shots on what I want to review today, and here's the review for Evangelion 1. The only problem I think some otakus will have is that this looks nearly just the same as the first 6 episodes its based on.
Feel free to post anything Evangelion related, including philosophical questions raised by the show. Story: The story, as a remake of the original series, is fantastic. Everything we remember from the original work is there: a cast of compelling characters, a unique scifi-setting, and an underlying story dealing with the various psychological issues of Ikari Shinji, his ruthless father Gendo, his self-imposed guardian Misato Katsuragi, and all the other personalities you either remember from before or will become acquainted with soon enough. Misato has the two take cover in Unit-01's cockpit before ordering Shinji to retreat, but he disobeys and destroys the Fifth Angel with the equipped knife. The budget is significantly higher, so it looks a lot better though. The characters, though a bit underdeveloped, are far from cliché and go through many self-conflicts as well as the obvious angels.
The pacing and dialogue have ruined any chance this had of being a replacement Evangelion in its own right, as well as the plot and directing being skimmed over. Some scenes are handled better here than they were in the earlier versions. The Angel slams Unit-01 into a mountainside, nearly crushing Toji and Kensuke. But the downright artistic shape-shifting the sixth not the fifth as in the original angel Ramiel does gets a tad ridiculous. Some important stuff is revealed to Shinji a lot earlier than before, and Kaoru has a grand entrance on the moon. The original series already had excellent artwork for its generation, and they've managed to improve it. When Unit-13 reaches Lilith's corpse, Kaworu realizes that both spears are similar and after a period unresponsive in deep thought as Mari and Asuka, who asks him if he trying to start another Impact, assault them and Kaworu pleads with Shinji to not remove them.
We actually have a budget now! Incidentally, I also believe I was one of roughly half the audience that was present who had bathed within the last 24 hours, and of that I am proud. Also, this was only the first part of the series, I'm assuming that once Asuka shows up in the next movie that I may like it a bit more. And even the ones who stayed don't sound remotely similar to how they did 14 years ago. Here he runs into problems with classmates , whose sister was injured in the battle and beats Shinji up in retaliation, and his friend. For more explanation, try , , and. I've watched all there is of Evangelion, but want more.
And, having said that, it's still one of my favorite movies of all time. Also, End of Evangelion is not only an anime masterpiece, but a masterpiece in pure animation filmmaking. Overall: Well, through the 5 previous categories, I think I basically summed up my views and hopes for the series. Spike Spencer is more experienced this time and he plays Shinji just fine, but whether you like his voice or not is up to you. Final Words: What a disappointment. Colleen Clinkenbeard is a voice that gives me a bit of a mixed reaction when she was the voice of Ritsuko Akagi.
. Short answer: better than ever. This definitely will bring back nostalgic feelings from older fans whilst giving something new for them to watch and admire. Another incredibly powerful Angel appears, Ramiel, and tries to drill into the Geofront. The music is nearly as phenomenal though many of the tracks used in film were take straight from the television series which isn't totally a bad thing I might add.
