The Rebuild of Evangelion
I really don't know why we don't seem to have a big Evangelion forum here in Series Chat.
I mean, it's an ongoing manga, they're coming out with three new movies, and there might be a live-action. You have freaking Detective Conan and a bunch of other things, but no Neon Genesis Evangelion.
It's totally justifiable, and it's one of the greatest and most popular series ever.
Anyway, I'm sure you've heard of the four new Evangelion films called The Rebuild of Evangelion, The first three telling a new story directed by the guy who did FLCL and a lot of other cool dudes, and the last one being a new ending.
The trailer for the first one, which comes out in September in Japan, already hit Japanese theaters, and some people camera-phoned it.
It's hard to see the quality like this, but I'm hyped.
That "trailer" was rediculus. Aside from the text at the end it might just as well have been some rather crappy AMV, as it was just old fottage.
I was hyped till I saw that trailer
You're whining about the trailer, but if you'd actually seen it in theaters, you would've realized it's not just "old footage".
The footage is supposed to be unbelievably well animated and really cool, and Rebuild will have lots of great divergences from Evangelion.
You just can't tell because it's a CAMERA PHONED YOUTUBE CLIP. That's why it may seem lame or old footage. You guys do realize that, right? I mean, anyone with a little sense wouldn't go, "WOW THIS LOOKS DUMB".
It's not just old footage, 'tards. It's actually supposed to be amazing. I can't wait to see what's done with it, especially in the masterful hands of Kazuya Tsurumaki.
hmm im not too happy about it just being a retelling of the whole series but lets see what happens
i am a big evangelion fan anyways
I am King
why can't they make another great anime instead of recycling an ancient one while changing its scenario ? (if not to milk the cow...)

Because it was one of the greatest animes of all time and there are a lot of fans who just want more.

they had already reanimated it. platinumed it, created tons of doujins of it (btw I love the retake. yes I'm contradicting myself), Created games with alternate stories, new characters etc.

No, not really...Reanimation and Platinum don't count for shit, those are just the same thing with better animation or bonuses, they're just "Special Edition".

We're talking Evangelion story-wise, there's only the TV series, manga, and End of Evangelion. Rebuild is going to be amazing.
i don't think the original manga series is hosted at stoptazmo (which is a requirement for a subforum). plus, subforums get created by the amount of traffic and/or people petitioning for the subforum.
anyway, i thought retake was a great alternate ending myself.. the original ending was a great disappointment - i don't care if there was oodles amount of symbolism in it: if it's hardly indecipherable, it's just a huge unartistic mess.
will withhold judgement on the alternate ending till i see it
