Okay, I've been taking a keen interest in the Rebuild of Evangelion movies so far. And I won't deny that I've taken a liking to Mari Illustrious Makinami. Too much of a liking, according to some people. So naturally, I've been keeping track of updates regarding these movies, if only to get more inspiration and information for my stories.

However, I recently learned something about Rebuild 3.0, and...well, it looks like it's official. Anno had lost it. Big time.

Now, I won't spoil things for those of you who haven't seen what I've seen. I'll just say that, as of this moment, I'm banging my head, trying to make sense of what Anno's cooking up this time.

Of course, there are those who would say that trying to make sense of anything Evangelion is in and of itself an exercise in futility.

And on a side note, Toji Suzuhara's little sister has finally been named. Which, naturally enough, results in my perfectionist tendencies kicking me in the butt, wanting me to spend some time making the needed corrections in my stories.

Argh...sometimes, I think I'm trying too hard...

Yeah, Mari's nice (sent you a Note with some ideas for her as the Cap, BTW. I like her in that role a whole lot-and if she doesn't makes sense, well, then let's make it make sense).

As well.... 'Sakura' is her official name, and it's not a bad name-just gives me flashes to 'Card Captors' or 'Naruto'. I prefer the fanon names for her-Mari, Chijo, etc. They just.... sound better.

I say, screw it-your fic, your rules. She started with a different name, keep it-on some other fic in the future, you can name her 'Sakura'.

Maybe even have her say something about how... 'generic' the name is.

As for the movie: this seriously falls under 'YMMV' and maybe even as far as 'Fanon Discontinuity' (and, heck, I'd like to see how they'll try and fix THIS in any 'Super Robot Wars' game).

Fanfic fodder, nevertheless. Just cut and paste the parts that are interesting and leave behind the ones that are not (currently thinking of an alt SWOE idea (which probably won't go from the idea (And some art) stage, but it's the way I roll-I like to try to be elaborate) which at least uses the 'Yui Ikari's maiden name was Ayanami' idea, if nothing else).

Well....at the very least, Misato can finally be a PC in Super Robot Wars now. That counts for something right guys? ......Guys?

Good point, that's kinda a dim bright side but I'll take what I can get.

Well, I read the review, too. I'll say this:

Thank goodness for Akira Toriyama (and Gundams, if Evas aren't your thing :lol:)!

I have the urge now to commission OP to SHrrrrrriiip out all the women of EVA, only to have Shinji himself kill them all with a Gamma infused lightsaber!

Or, is that more of a GuroChan thing? :rofl:

In any event, Anno is off his Maki eating rocker.

BTW OP, does he really take medication? Why did he go Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs in the first place?

Could he not stand the fan backlash from the "End of Evangelion?"Or, is it something else? Maybe, he should take my advice and just have the Eva crew recruit the Z Fighters to take the rest of the angels down. They don't give a fuck about abusive, passive aggressiveness , they just, KICK ASS, and kick more ass, and blast evil with SSJ rage! Lord knows, in the EVA world, they would be bette off, trust me.

Yes, Anno really does take medications. Psychiatric medications of some kind, though I don't know exactly what kind.

If there's one thing you can always count on Anno for, it is that he delights in screwing with your head. Learned well from the shrink after his breakdown.

Before I say anything, take a look at this review, my fellow Eva fans.

[link]

Now then...Just give me a minute. Now after reading this, the review from Japan and doing my own research, I have this to say.

Ahem:

:wtf::wtf: WHAT IN THE BLUE FRIGGIN HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU, ANNO :iconscreamplz: :wtf::wtf:?!:rage: RRRRRAAAGGGGHHHH :rage:!!! :angered: THIS...THIS IS NOT EVA :angered:!! :stupid: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO OUR EVA, YOU...YOU BAKA :iconrageplz:!! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH :fork:!!! EVA 2.22 WAS GREAT! AND YOU...YOU...NNNNNOOOOOOO :iconangerplz:!

:explosion::explosion::explosion::explosion:

(15 MINUTES LATER AFTER CALMING DOWN)

:tears: My Eva...My sweet Misato...The things that made Eva cool, even if it was a controversial mindscrew, it still is a classic. The only ones who'll love it are ShinjixKaworu fans. Everything else is just...:sadangel:. Give us back the Eva we love, you bastard :tears:. Give...it...back...:iconcryingplz: (Walks away).

Well, I just looked at the review in question, and...I think I might have come up with another possibility.

It's like you said, this whole thing seems to be aimed at Shinji/Kaworu fans, and Kaworu apparently set it in motion when he used that Lance of Longinus on Unit 01. So what if this movie's reality is some kind of fabrication created by Kaworu himself?

I know, it might be a bit nutty, but considering how Anno's brain works, anything's possible. Besides, that being a fabrication is much more preferable to the alternative...

Hmm...:hmm:. Now that I've calmed down a bit, it is possible. Based on the review and the pics I've seen, there may be credibility to what you say, kohai. Here are my thoughts so far.

*Spoilers ahead*

1. According to what the characters have said, it's been 14 years since the events of Eva 2.22. That's strange in and of itself. After all, it's not the first time Shinji has been trapped in Unit 01. And it didn't take NEARLY as long to get him out in the previous incarnations, even during his LCL moments. So why would it take so long to get him out :?? That would screw up SEELE and Gendo's plans.

2. What in the hell happened to Rei (The one Shinji saved I mean)? It's been confirmed in the new movie that the Rei in this one is not the same one he saved in the last movie. This is not explained in any way, shape or form, even at the end :wtf:! The fact that this is completely unexplained is NOT like Anno at all, even with his usual mindscrewiness.

3. If it's truly been 14 years, why does it look like the majority of the characters (Especially Asuka and Mari) have not aged at all?! They look almost the same with a few changes :wtf:. Again, not like Anno at all.

4. With the exception of Kaworu and the new Rei, EVERYBODY HATES SHINJI. Even...Misato :tears:. That makes no damn sense, especially in Misato's case, since not only has she NEVER hated Shinji in ANY version of Eva, but she even SUPPORTED Shinji at the end of Eva 2.22, despite knowing what was about to happen. And like 2, this remains unexplained.

Now regardless of how well it's doing in Japan, the bottom line is this. As beautiful as a movie is, from graphics, to art, to music, if the story is confusing (Which it is), Has plot holes (Which it does if you look hard enough) and makes NO DAMN SENSE if you're following the first two Rebuild movies carefully (Which everyone was doing, until this crap came along.), then you're asking for trouble, especially from a country that Anno KNOWS he has had issues with in the past, from Rei (Which is still argued about in ALL aspects to this day), to Shinji being a 'weakling with no backbone' (Which is not true, regardless of the facts.), to End of Evangelion itself.

If this Rebuild movie series is truly 'Shinji's story', then he took 2 steps forward in the first 2 movies, and 10 steps back with this one, ultimately doing a disservice to his most iconic and controversial character. And I can't help but be disappointed and saddened, even if your 'Kaworu theory' is true. And if it is, how could Kaworu pull something off like that? He is strong as an angel, but NOT that strong compared to Lilith and Adam, if my memory is correct.

One thing is clear. Anno is going to need double doses of his meds once this hits our shores, cause he's not going to get so warm a welcome here. And that's the bottom line, because Mr. Lee said so *Glass Shatters* :skull:!
