"I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR THEORY ON HOW REBUILD IS A SEQUEL!"
I love Neon Genesis Evangelion. But it's a polarizing show. Some people think it's brilliant, some think it's trash. Some people think it's brilliant for the wrong reasons. Some people don't pick up on why it's good because they feel betrayed by it not being what they originally thought it was and miss its real complexities. But, for whatever reason, pretty much any discussion you're going to encounter about Evangelion, pretty much any message board thread and the like, is going to go the same way. And this is why I avoid discussing Evangelion most of the time. Not because I'm afraid of debating it, but because it's such a pointless excercise at this point.
This past weekend I had the fortune of visiting my folks back home for the 4th of July weekend. While home I decided to dig out two of my toy chests, giant plastic bins, with a hodgepodge of toys from every point in my life. My main intent was to photograph some of the more memorable items. Perhaps these toys are pretty kick ass, perhaps my nostalgia glasses are on full blast, but either way it was good to see some of them again.
For the most part most of my old toys are in pretty worn condition, some barely exist anymore. Take for instance what's left of my beloved Optimus Prime G2…
The second Neon Genesis Evangelion film, Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance, has hit the shelves over in Japan. While we await a BluRay release here in the States here are our preliminary thoughts of the film.
Sorry it's an English dub clip.
"You Are (Not) Alone"
Spike Spencer's Shinji is... still not that great.
Sorry about the lack of subtitles, but it was this or a dub clip. I try to spare you all from the terrible Evangelion dub as much as possible.
