I'm surprised....Shinji is actually a bit gar in this one, not as worse and whiny in the originals. The thing is Shinji was that he's the victim of circumstances. He knows himself that he's a retard and a wuss when it comes on saving humanity but he's the only one that was meant for unit 01. He should've take some military training or something and be more like Setsuna from 00, but I'm pretty even with all that he would stay a wuss.

Man I guess my Shinji-hate is still inside me all these years.... I though I'd softened up...at least a little..

Well, he's 14 years old and was forced to save the earth. I guess not many people can remain composed, especially not any 14 years old that I can think off. This is rather realistic. At least I prefer this Shinji to uber shonen with uber mech whoop anybody arse that fall on his sight.

This is human psychology as real as it can get.

why eva's being praised for the pyschologycal one? 'cause shinji reflected a normal human

I bet I pissed my pants too if I suddenly told to drive some robot to fight something monstrous like angel (or if tomorrow I was told to go to the frontline to war)

Total success, I was especially pleased by the emphasis on the extreme suffering that Shinji endures when he pilots eva-01.I don't remember him screaming like this in the original serie.It puts things in the context.Yes, he's whiny but he barely escaped twice an excruciating death so it's understandable.

It would be weird if he said, "cool, I nearly boiled in a huge test tube and every time the robot loose an arm, I feel the pain.Time to go!!I love being used by my father like this".

Like I said, a victim of circumstances. Shinji in this one is so much better in and tolerable compared to the original, where he was a complete emo depressed unsociable kid. At first he may be surprised because zomg he had to fight a gigantic monster, in a robot he hardly knows, by the request of his dad who abandoned him. But even after he managed to go through all that, received adequate training, he is still a depressed emo kid. I'm not asking him to be like Simon from TTGL but jeez, have some sense of duty and responsibility, be a man and live with it. I guess being a kid and a plot device somehow saved him from all that. Maybe that's why in my junior high I hate kids like Shinji...

And this is just the LE. The cheaper regular edition will go on sale later in May. Amazing.
just order the limited Ed form play-asia. Good thing i am getting pay on the 1st >_<

So I'm wondering.... why the heck isn't this in widescreen format? You'd think they'd do at least that for a rebuild..

It is very much a widescreen format. Which one did you download?

The dvd rip that is available is 1280x720p. HD widescreen alright.

A lot of the DVD rips that I've seen so far seem squeezed. On my macbook's widescreen monitor for instance, the NF version of the film, the mkv file, it doesn't fit the whole screen and there is black space on both sides of the screen.

Probably just shoddy encoding.

My release(NF) used the IZ raw. If anyone wants HD, download the "Miscellaneous/Anonymous" file or download the .ass(found on TT) and use it with whatever raw you want.

Shinji is a depressed teenager with no self-esteem, he is the only one who can drive Eva 01 because he is the only person who can fix his own problems so it's a little bit normal that he is afraid of getting on the Eva, it's a metaphor.

Nice catch. Also don't know if this has been mentioned but another reason EVA01 accepted no body but Shinji (and why it gone berserk to protect him) was because Yui soul was inside? Same goes for EVA02 and Asuka's mom soul was inside.

It is in widescreen format Don't base your opinions on the raws that you get. Get your facts right. Better yet, buy the original/official DVD release and see for yourself. The 1280x720 "HD" raw is an upconversion from the DVD's 704x396.

The one released by [XPbI4] is about 2.4Gb, 1280x720 higher overall compression and much more detail than the one released by Anonymous. They used the same sub though.

Well, I really enjoyed that. Makes me want to go and rewatch the original series again.
Loved the new effects. Rainbows are the new lens flare, obviously.
Looking forward to the rest.

Man - how sweet it is to be discussing Eva online. It's no exaggeration to say this series changed my life in many ways - I had virtually no exposure to Japanese pop culture before Eva, and at the time I had no idea places like this board existed. So I missed out on this whole experience the first time around!

Asuka was one of the Tsundere pioneers, before tsundere was even a otaku word.
