12 Days of Anime #4: whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat

Evangelion-3.0-Asuka-ShinjiSorry, not another Samurai Flamenco post. This is about something else that provoked many “WHAAAAAAAAAAT” reactions this year.

The Evangelion movies had already been rather polarizing before 3.0, to say the least, given the ending of 2.0. I don’t totally remember what I expected when I started 3.0. I hope I wasn’t naive enough to think it would continue straight from the conclusion of the previous movie. How laughably silly that would be! (I probably thought this. I am laughably silly.)

But the movie starts. Asuka and Mari … are on the same side? And they’re fighting in space?! I suppose that’s nothing, though … wait, they’re trying to retrieve Unit 01 with Shinji still inside?! What the hell happened after the end of the second movie?! Who cares about answering that, however, when there are so many things with which to bludgeon the viewer! SEELE has started all-out war, while Misato and Ritsuko are with Asuka and Mari in fighting back. Nobody is pleased to see Shinji.

Man, what the FUCK happened?!

    Oh man, I still need to see 3.0 for myself. I’m ready for more NGE mindfucks. I’m also ready for Asuka with an eyepatch, because anime girls are always better with eyepatches.

      It’s definitely something!

    Also did the animators forget how to draw two eyes? They found endless excuses not to. Shine, hair, patches, WHATEVER!

      Haha, well, that seems to happen in anime a lot!

    It’s all because Asuka got a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas, and nobody warned her of the danger of shooting her eye out with it.
    She could have gotten a prosthetic eye like Spike from Bebop, but no. Having an eyepatch puts more of an edge on her tsundere.

    Haven’t seen 3.0 yet, but haven’t been inclined to since almost everyone I know despises the movie (with your reaction being one of many reasons).

      I think it is worth seeing just for the reaction, unless you have Evangelion or something.

    So many questions, so little answers. There’s not even even hints to possible answers.

      The answer is all that money Hideaki Anno is packing away in his pockets now.
