Yes, like, "wait, what the hell was that all about?!"

Seriously, I know it's "draw your own conclusions", but good god if that wasn't an esoteric nightmare. Sorry, it was too too too vague for me to even grasp at a suitable conclusion out of the ether for it, (and I consider myself a reasonably intelligent fellow to pick up on subtlety and symbolism) but if it's going to shine a little light on it, I'm all for it.

This is a pretty bizarre coincidence when considering that there are live-action Evangelion movies in the works right now...

As long as it's something new, but doesn't this sound like they are turning the whole series in to 4 hour and half movies? A prequel would be nice since alot has happen the day of and years after Second Impact, and a sequel would help to see what spoiler[Shinji and Asuka did after they became the new Adam and Eve... Hmmmm..... that would be a nice Hentai movie. Razz]

Oh my, what's that? It appears to be a dead horse!

Might anyone have a gavel? Or perhaps some other bludgeoning instrument? I do believe we should beat it mercilessly.

Eh, I'll probably still see them.

I thought the series ending was fairly vauge, but I didn't mind as my conclusion made sense pretaining to the story. The movie was clearer (the story wasn't as deep IMHO) though it left a lot of people on the edge.

If neither the series nor the movie (EoE) told you the end then, maybe you overrate yourself. I mean, I understood the entire plot and the film as a conclusion when I was 13 and picked up on the conclusion to the series when last time I saw it (5 months ago, age 14.).

Oh gods, thank you for posting that - I got confused and thought the four new movies were the live-action stuff, and I wondering what the hell budget they had!

I should probably be more cynical than this, but I'm thoroughly excited. I'm very pleased to see that Tsurumaki is directing, too.

4 new movies? a prequel, mid, sequal and "final" movie? a prequel, okay sure, probably having not much to do with the main eva characters. a mid? maybe dealing with events only referenced in the main narrative? "The Myster of Eva 4"? sounds like a spin off, but let's hope its a frasier and not a joey. and a sequal? And how can you contemplate a sequal. the abstract nature of EoE's ending made it great! i can't begin to imagine a "final" eva movie. But as someone who condemned gainax's attempt to sequal, what i thought, was the unsequalable Gunbuster and has been blissfully proven wrong, i have hope that gianax can do something great and new with an existing expectation without trampling on precedents.

Or...
spoiler[Shinji ditched her for Kaworu and they paddled off into the sunset leaving Asuka happy to be alone with no one to love. Wink]

I hope the new stuff better than the orignal.

The next question is who will license it for the US? ADV, Manga, FUNimation or Geneon? Then where will it air: Toonami, Adult Swim or another network?

I guess they figure there is more milk.

Edit: my comment was not supposed to incite a whole bunch of moo cowing.

---------------------------

And I think there is actually, but I am unsure of where this will lead. Sure I want to see modern NGE, but do I really? But I would also hate to see it trashed at the same time.

But don't get me wrong it is exciting. It does make me think where the story goes from here. I hope they put their top guns at this.
