    So who else Stateside has seen it? Just watched the Bluray myself. Was divine, pun intended.

    I like Eva enough that I actually bought the bluray. As for 3.0 AND Final, no one knows. Both are releasing at the same timeframe, though

    I just watched the bluray over the weekend. Definitely a lot different then regular series, certainly wasn't expecting them to do that to _________. The battle scene at the end was really awesome, Mari fights well. Looking forward to Q. Last I heard was Summer 2012, but nobody really knows for sure as noted above.

    Eva is my 2nd time all time favorite series, so I was excited about these. 1.11 seemed fairly pointless (by this I mean how it was 90% the same as the series), but 2.22 restored my expectations and then some.

    I haven't even seen NGE, but plan to, is it good? What exactly do I have to watch besides the episodes, the movies? How many exactly are there?

    To most, it will probably remain better than Rebuild (as the "original", you know?).

    I for one hated a lot of things in NGE including (not really spoilers, but...):
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It might have been because I was too young at the time, but yeah, I'm enjoying Rebuild more than NGE.

    Eva is one of the best series ever made. To watch -

    Watch the first 24 episodes.

    Watch End of Evangelion

    Optionally watch Eps 25 + 26, but realize these are a serious mindf*** and whats happening in Shinji's Mind, where as End of Eva is whats happening in the "Real World"

    The movies we're talking about now are a remake of the series you can watch after the above.

    Oh, so End of Eva is the last 2 episodes from other people's viewpoint? And Original > Rebuild? Noted, downloading Originals now, will get End of Eva afterwards.

    And after all that, the Movies? Which are remakes, huh.

    Evangelion 2.22 is teh awesomest Evangelion EVAR. I can't wait to see what 3.0 will do.

    Too bad they're probably the internal Khara VS Gainax war has probably freezed the work.

    Something tells me that they'll do it as two separate releases. There's no way they'll be able to release two movies togheter, except waiting 6 years for both to be ready [​IMG]

    According to what they've said, both'll release at once. I honestly hope they don't, really...then all the joy and fun of it is blown in one afternoon.

    Yeah, but lots of things have changed by then (they've said that even before releasing 1.0!) and both movies proved to be smash hits in Japan.
    Releasing them togheter would mean that it'd be just a single long movie, or a simultaneous release. Both cases would make them lose money.

    I don't foresee that happening anymore, since every single one they release brings in millions of yen, so they'll probably milk the cow as long as possible [​IMG]

    Saw this before; known as the "Sequel Theory".

    I wouldn't call it a sequel though, but there might be some correlation. Or we're just getting trolled.

    The latest Newtype cover got leaked. It has Asuka on the cover.

    Let's hope for some 3.0 details.
