This would have been exciting news if it was 3 or 4 years ago now it's meh who cares what about 80% of anime fans have already seen EVA. AS might as well gotten something more "fresh" like Rahxephon or even Fahner.

It will most likely be a version similar to the "Toonami Version" of "Tenchi Muyo" OVA. Wink

[sarcasm]Yeah, and since we all know that every single person who watches Adult Swim is a hardcore fan who bought the entire series on VHS eight years ago, this is a collosal waste of time and money. Where does Cartoon Network get off bringing one of the greatest series of all time to American television? Jerks.[/sarcasm]

We may get a flood of new anime fans who think Evangelion is a new title.

Not a bad thing if we can lead them deeper into the depths of our shared obsession.

"So little newbee you like Evangelion, here try..."

Could be fun. [insert evil grin here]

I'm surprised there was no mention of this in the annoucement.

Because of this, I'm assuming it's the original version.

I actually had the same reaction as ZODDGUTS. This would have been absolutly cool a few years ago, now it's actually a nuscience. I'm not nessicarly a person who bought the Eva VHS eight years ago...because I've only been an anime fan for 6 years, but I mean, something as old as Eva that practicly everyone has seen? If you can rent an anime at Blockbuster, or buy for like $5, then why air it on TV? I've never understood why the remastered versions were brought out in the first place, let alone this. The only reason I'll watch Eva on AS is the last few eps because I have yet to see those, but other than that, I don't see much point in me rewatching an anime I saw 3-4 years ago. It's not going to generate any large number of new fans (definatly not like Naruto will) so I still see no point, but whatever, that's their decission. I find it comical, but whatever.

Oh, I can see it now. Front page of ANN announces "Legion Of The Overfiend" to air on Adult Swim. Cartoon Network will have come of age then. Laughing

Wait two years ago did they say the would never air Ranma 1/2 nor NGE, it would have been hilarious if they announced it on tv.

"We will not absolutly will not air Evangelion, hold on wait, WHAT are you sure, are you really sure, Damn, uuhhh, my bad."

Of course keep in mind that not everyone who watches AS is a hardcore anime fan who has seen all the standards.
