    I know they're making a few movies (2.22, 3.33) but when they all come out, will it be like all of the anime episodes put together? Or would I need to buy the anime series and then 1.11 on blu-ray and others when they come out? I've heard about the anime for a long time I just haven't checked it out. But since I got a Blu-Ray player not to long ago I am looking for anime to get on Blu-Ray, and I don't want to buy 1.11 and etc and then find out I really needed to see the original series before getting this. I hope this make since. I had a long day and I'm tired, lol.

    The movies start out the same as the series, then go in a different direction. I don't think you need to see the original series before the movies to understand them, but since only the first one is out (in America) I can't say for absolute certain that will remain the case.

    In fact, 1.11 is pretty much the first six episodes strung together, with the flow reworked for movie purposes, with redrawn animation, and only a small bit of new material.

    The second movie starts taking the story in a dramatically different direction than the series, apparently.

    But yeah, it's meant to be a stand-alone story. You shouldn't need to watch the original series, except for curiosity's sake.

    I personally feel the TV series, and its follow-up movie were a waste of time. From what I've heard about the second movie, things seem to be shaping up a lot more nicely this time around.

    Also, the new movies seem to
    take place after the world ended and restarted in the old continuity, since Kaworu talks about Shinji in past-tense before they've even met.

    It wouldn't hurt to watch the series and "End of Evangelion" at some point while you're waiting for new movies.

    That's a very interesting theory, but not necessarily true since he's barely been in the films yet so we don't know the context of those lines.
