Hey, guys.

May I know what's the difference between the 2nd EVA film from the anime episodes? How much does it differ from the previous incarnation?
An improvement or worse?
Who're the new characters, etc?

Thanks,

Read the thread, it's all we were talking about, but most of it is SPOILER-territory. If you need details, request via PM, comprehende?

You're not asking for a paragrpah or two...the answers would be easily a three-page essay.

Simply, it differs. A LOT. The first half is mostly entirely new stuff (but kind of has its roots in episode 8), the middle is based on episode 12, and the last section is based on episodes 17-19.

As such, it covers a lot of ground...too much to comfortably call it an "improvement" on the series.

One of my friends, after watching 1.0 said he liked it, but that "it didn't do EVERYTHING better than the TV series did." I think that fits for 2.0 as well. It's different; you may like it, you may not.

As for the new character, she's still a bit of a mystery. She's a hell of a lot of fun, though.

Fine by me. I didn't really want to write the three-page essay about the differences, anyway.

That said, the very quick preview already promises a LOT of changes, as much as movie 2 did.

Ah I see Gainax's marketing is once more going full throttle. Unfortunately though, aside from the Sadamoto-drawn Mari pic, they're talking about the TV series instead. Note the kana used to spell Evangelion; the movies use different characters for it.

Well it's not like Mari is going to be in the actual Manga at this point. So any bets on wether or not Sadamoto will finish the manga by the time 3.0 is out?

If he can finish it in Volume 12: Maybe.
If it ends up running to Volume 13: No way.

No
More likely he will take his time

I'd like to know from anyone who has seen 2.0. Is this unjustified or valid?

*shrugs* If you've been in the fandom long enough (guess when I started?), you'd know that EVA ALWAYS elicits strong emotions, and most of the time it's either love or hate. There is normally NO middle ground for people. It's that type of franchise.

This is common enough, and frankly I think this blogger is blowing things out of proportion. The movie was great, really, and the only real issue I had was the fact that, although the events are supposed to occur over the course of several months ("Gaghiel" to "Israfel" to Sahaquiel to Bardiel to Zeruel, which occurs from early summer to late autumn in the TV series) it barely feels that way (more like weeks, hahaha).

At first glance, I'd say Iruel (Nanomachine Angel), Arael (Mindrape Angel), and Armisael (DNA strand/Fusion tower Angel). There are supposedly 18 Angels in the TV Canon (with Humanis/Humanity as the last). In game canon, there are 19 if you include Yamagishi Mayumi's Angel Translucis/Mihr (Ethereal Butterfly Angel, Angel of "Truth").

If you add the unnamed Angels from the artbooks, then that brings the number to a whopping 22 Angels, which means that seven Angels are missing in the picture.

I dunno. I saw the movie twice in the theaters and loved it, and I most assuredly DIDN'T turn my brain off.

I guess I can see where the negative reviewer is coming from, but I find it difficult to believe that he honestly found ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the movie to praise.

At the VERY least, it seems to me that no one can deny that it's visually spectacular.
