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...):
Many, many awkward paused scenes
Shinji being such a wuss
The last few episodes were pretty much filled with subliminal-type messages

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.

No, the movies/Rebuild is FAR better then the original. And Shinji is no wuss anymore.

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

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

I'm still waiting for 3.0 to get made (HURRYUPDAMMIT(owaitearthquake) and reveal this to be deliberate...
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.
