oh, dj, do you know what is the title of the movie i stated above?
I think its the last movie, the end actually
Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan - Seisou Hen or Samurai X: Reflection and ova
if it is where he dies...
Just checked it, it is the name of the ova, but you might have watched the Complete Movie, Director`s Cut, same thing probably...
yeah that is the one,
i cried when i watched that one,
it is an OVA? or a movie?
oh, its an OVA, going to look for it.
as its a very hearwarming OVA
Its a 2 ep ova, it was then reedited as a movie...
Ppl rage because of how it ends, but i think it was a perfect end for a legend...
Yeah, I've seen the "rage" over what happens.. But, it's the one movie I watch almost every 3m. It's a great "ova" "movie" that just begs to not see that "tear" in the eye...
I just realized you can switch audio streams in MPC by pressing the "a" key, even if the other audio stream doesn't show up in the right-clicky thing.
Also, Cold Storm, you shouldn't use so many quote marks. It's bad for your health.
"I'll make it" a "POINT" to stop using "them" tooo "much"
regardless of your opinion of the show the op is pretty epic, from the first note you know its eva, the music and score for the series is part of what made the series great, where most shows at the time were scored w/ a keyboard eva would have huge orchestra scores.
Having watched eva more times then I can count, I'll admit the story is only ok, and gets a bit convoluted at some points. What made eva so epic imo was the art direction, thrilling battles, and score. Where most mech shows had pretty boring battles w/ choppy moving mechs and a bunch of laser beams, eva had fast paced hand to hand battles w/ excellent editing. And theres a reason why WETA has had a long standing "Dibs" on doing a live action eva sfx, its because the designs in eva are amazing, the evas, the angels, tokyo 3.
Anyone grabbed the BRS tv pv yet??
8 ep on noitamina block starting january...
Im all excited allover again after watching it, i dare even say it might look better than the movie...
If they release all in a single boxset for moderate price like the movie, im importing...
Or just wait one year for the english version...
thats quite promising,
the BRS PV,
i never watched the OVA though,
asuka's fight at the end (one of the movies?) against those white angel/eva things will always stand out in my memory as one of the most sheer awesome fights in my memory. never before and never since, has a fight in a TV show/anime made me want to cheer so badly.
(FLCL and bokurano have come close with sheer awesomeness in fights, but that asuka fight was pure unadulterated mother f*ing win)
And just you wait for Pirate asuka in movie 3...
That was in end of evangelion, where Asuka is swarmed by the production series all wielding a Longinus spear, its pure carnage and badassery...
Try doing that Gundamns!!
no gundam has ever reached the sheer badassery of using a goddamned batman battleship as a human (well, lots of humans really) shield.
gundams have that whole cool machine precision thing going on.
Evas are what happens if you back a wild animal into a corner, and that wild animal is a pissed off redhead.
Hmm, how about eva going berserk, and awe inspiring scene...
That reminds me in Haganai, crazy science girl reading out loud fanfic of eva 02 vs gundamn like it was porn, lol...
now that i think about it, asuka may have been the start of my thing for aggressive redheads
while i love gundams, its the science nerd in me that loves it. evas arent about the science, or the machine/eva - its about the humanity of the pilot and the emotion of it.
which is more awesome, a gundam pilot who looks like he couldn't give a shit and kills hundreds of opponents in one go, or an eva pilot who fears for their own safety as well as all of their friends family and colleagues, but ends up ripping their opponent to shreds barehanded as an act of desperation.
Personally i find that act of depseration, of madness as rational thought and logic fails that causes you to resort to your animal instincts quite powerful and moving. but hey, i'm pretty fucking drunk right now so what do i know.
Do gundamn pilots feel what the bot feels??
I mean, in Eva the pilot is synchronized with the Eva and if it is stabbed in the head the pilot will feel real pain and can die or suffer major injuries if isn't shut down...
Just like Asuka in the movie, she felt everything...
so eva is pretty much like IS?
or is it different?
Infinite Stratos? if so, i never watched it.
Eva's are Bio mechs, linked to the body, mind and soul of the pilot. they feel what happens to the eva.
No, IS's story is very shallow compared to eva. eva;s characters are more profound (I believe that's would be the correct word to describe them). and the story's darker than IS. Besides, the Mechs are more than just mechs in eva. they aren't just worn armors. imo, IS's mechs aren't mechs per se, more like armours.
i mean that the IS mech is similar to eva's mecha
but you answered that already,
and i pretty much agree that IS's story is very shallow
Ok, let me see if i can get this right:
Some spoilers, nothing major i think, but be warned...
The Eva unit as it appears is a being or rather an entity directly cloned from Lilith the first Angel to descend upon the earth and cause the second impact in 2000 destroying part of the earth and annihilating billions, Mankind cloned this Angel and thus the Evangelion was born, the armor they wear is not meant for it's protection but it is a tool to restrict the beast within, and as a means to control it, these beasts are also infused with a human soul, and thats the reason they go berserk sometimes and its impossible to control them then, and it goes even further, evangelion Unit 00 attempted to kill its own pilot before the story takes place, thats the reason Rei is badly hurt in the first episode, or in Shinji's case in episode 1 too, the Evangelion act's on its own to protect him...
The Evangelion is essentially the same as the enemy they are fighting...
I wrote this without references, but im sure its accurate...
i edited some spoiler tags in for you. sure its an old show, but clearly people here aint seen it.
the plot is complicated, deep, dark and brutal... and thats why we love it.
cant really understand deep dark and brutal plot..
so ill leave it at there,
I liked Eva, until the last few episodes which sent my ratings for the show down to almost 0. The countless remakes trying to patch it up didn't do it justice either. Between IS and Eva, I would almost recommend IS because while the story is non existent you get a few laughs, while Eva promises deep and complex story which delivers until the last few episodes, when it burnt and crashed. Better to expect nothing and get something than expect something and get nothing. Would recommending watching it if you want to watch the new movies but otherwise give it a skip. I do not recommend people watch classic because most people find them good, just like I cant give a s**t about reading Shakespeare.
Watch the 1.11 and 2.22 films. They're basically Eva without the angst.
