    Excellent, more nonsensical talk about hedgehogs, ceilings and non-ringing phones.

    Uhh...what?

    Anyway, this sounds like it could be interesting. Hopefully the inflated psychobabble will be reduced and the amount of animation will be increased. Looking forward to it!

    Very interesting indeed. Hope the dub manages to get the original actors. Especially Tiffany Grant as Asuka and Spike Spencer as Shinji. And Amanda Lee as Rei. And.....

    Sign me up for this.

    This is pretty cool. Hopefully it's not all dorky happy like that manga that's out now.

    I think I'm going to have to get around to rewatching the original one of these days... it's been lingering in my mind a lot lately.

    Definately would like for the animation to be increased. But as far as goes psychobabble...that's what made the show interesting in the first place.

    Sounds like they plan to do it straightforward and make it less confusing.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting they get rid of the psychobabble completely, but the original was far too indulgent with letting characters ramble and babble (a problem that got worse when the animation budget declined and they still had to fill 22 minutes an episode). There are a number of speeches/monologues in the original that could have been half as long (at least) and a number of speeches/monologues that would have been better replaced with fully animated flashback sequences to give the show a faster pace. The weird psychobabble was definitely part of Evangelion's charm, but the original took it too far, IMO.

    You've got a good point. Though it was interesting to listen to and understand how each character changed as the story went. Towards the end, it just got to be too much. Half the time, the show wasn't keeping my attention enough to understand what they were going on about, so at the end of the eppisode, I sat and went "wtf just happened?"

    But, then again, I was mostly in it for the giant robot-things they like to call the EVAs...and my personal favorite part of the series was the movie The End of Evangelion....Just 'coz...XD

    Here's what Anime News Network says about it:
    Assuming this is correct, that means we get what may be four stand-alone stories set before, during, and after the original anime series, not an entirely new timeline from scratch. It could be cool, but if that's correct it will be weird for End of Evangelion to not actually be the end of Evangelion.

    I too hope there's less wtf psycho crap. The sh*t in the end episodes/movies pretty much ruined it for me.

    I liked the psycho crap... at the beginning of the show. Toward the end it got too much, and couple that with the massively cut back animation and we have a recipe for disaster.

    Having said that the new release of the original series is supposed to be fixing that (Evangelion: platinum). When the box set out for this comes out at the end of this year I'll be getting a set... I've got the series on VHS. (VHS? Whats that?)

    Could be good. Could be tasty. Tasty like EVA-Unit 2s insides. Mmm.

    I liked it even at the end. It gave the series character and it delivered a message that a lot of anime fans and other geeks need to hear... if only more of them understood it. It's my hope that this new Evangelion movie series tries to communicate with clarity what the original tried to say but mostly confused people. It would be a shame to drop that element completely. That would be like the body of Evangelion without a soul.

    It's good to see the anime again, but I always get the chill everytime I think how I tried to understand the show by watching them all 5 times. :S

    Psychobabble? Isn't that the fish you put in your ear so you can understand everything?
