>>3058615
I've come to realize a single thing: either we come together as a community real quick, or we die. Metaphorically, that is - we won't grow, we won't incentivize new works of Rei. It's dwindling already, the amount of fan works and what not.

Because there's so much reluctance against that, I can't honestly see how many here qualify as Rei fans. More like detached causals and the occasional autist. Sorry for ranting, and some may counter that we've got one of the most (if not THE most) active /c/ threads, and while that is true - it's not nearly enough, is it? We need to make some waves.
>>
>>3058623
man for you, having a waifu must have be a super serious buisness, why dont you do something instead of telling us to do something.
>>
>>3058625
I was able to get a thread sense of community going. I'm able to love Rei, produce fan art, and more. Like all of you, I guess.

But together we could do even more. It could be refreshing, fun and good for the lot of us, and in the short or long run, good for Rei.
>>
>>3058623
and another thing, no one is making new Eva art because there is no new official Eva works being released, so just wait until 4.44 and you will see a big spike in art, but knowing the people here they wont accept it for arbitrary reasons
>>
>>3058623
If you're passionate, fix this travesty:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asuka_vs_Rei
>>
>>3058630
>but knowing the people here they wont accept it for arbitrary reasons

Precisely. Hence our current predicament. You say there will be "new art", but there won't be. Not of the character this thread is dedicated to. Even if a new Eva work is being released, there will be LESS Rei fanart because the new Eva doesn't portray Rei well, or as a good character in itself. There will be tons of Kaworu, Asuka, Shinji or more fanart. Less people will become Rei fans, and we'll have less fanart. The people who draw "new" Rei will in the future draw her as a by-product, as a group picture or more - or draw the original Rei.

and another thing:
>but knowing the people here they wont accept it for arbitrary reasons
"the people here" are Rei fans, are you not one as well?

I can tell you're not a Rei fan though, you just like cute pics of Rei. Therein lies the difference.
>>
>>3058634
Wow, that actually exists. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

If you have passion as well, won't you come with?
>>
>>3058634
holy shit wikipedia made an actual article on this, also you need to source your argument, and only the show and EoE count as sources, so have fun

side note, don't delete criticism of Rei, it makes you look petty and they track all edits made simply point the main critiques of Asuka

>>3058637
ah going for the no true Scotsmen, please tell me how im not a "true" Rei fan
>>
>>3058639
You referred to us, the people in this thread, as being distinct from yourself. If we are Rei fans, and you are not us, what does that make you?

That's a red flag for me. I hope you aren't offended.

But I think you should be more critical of what they try to pass off as Rei. They're poisoning the Eva fanbase with anti-Rei rhetoric from Anno, the Rebuilds and are intentionally underselling Rei's character. We can't just accept that, and we don't.

Hence all Rei fanart we get is original Rei, and the occasional Kaworu or Asuka fan drawing Rei Q to spite the rest of us.
>>
>>3058640
well i do browse this thread daily and come upon new pics every now and then, so i dont the think the community is dead. the community reached its apex a long time ago. like I said wait for 4.44, we don't know what will happen in it, maybe actual Rei comes back, maybe Rei Q merges with Rei or something a long those lines, who knows.
but i dont make fan art because i can't draw for shit. someone was supposed to making a 3d rig, but who knows when that will be released. I haven't checked the Danbooru tag, maybe there is some good non-lewd stuff there
>>
>>3058642
Even if Rei comes back, we know one thing: she won't be getting a fair representation, and the surrounding "it" characters will be blown up in proportion to her. It'll simply be insulting.

If you can't draw or create, you can use your voice at least. You can speak up for Rei. You can fight things like this: >>3058634
That's where we need you. That's where we need to be. Why have we allowed these Rei haters to run unchecked for so long, when it's so simple to tear them down?

Works of beauty lift our hearts to Rei and honor her. They express our love.

Rei has been the inspiration of great art since the beginning, and this heritage protects Rei from the maelstromm of seasonal waifus and disillusionment that rages around her. Temper your fiery piety and turn it not against those whomst own images and figures, for they are your brethren, but instead turn it towards dedication to /Our Rei-chan/.

Any anons want to get together and figure out how we should edit that wiki article mentioned earlier? To be quite honest I'd rather see it removed, I can't come up with a good reason for why Wikipedia should be littered with something as asinine as that article.

I'm afraid that deleting it will start some sort of stupid editor war though, so maybe editing it and filling out the missing pieces are the best?

This, you can really tell how desperate the rei-hating autist is when he's so focused on 2.22. Of all the things bad with Rebuild, of all the things the director does to shit on Rei, a single scene where Rei says "poka poka" is what he's hung up on. Despite the fact that the mangas and game spinoffs made Rei-character that were ten times more overtly cute. I bet this guy even hates the scene where Rei asks to hold Shinji's hand.

>>3061315
If you actually liked Rei you'd spend less time attacking Rei fans in this thread and one of two Rebuilds that treated Rei OK, and more disowning almost everything else that isn't NGE. Please fuck off, these threads are best when you're not here.

You aren't Rei fans. Pokanamifags are cancer.
And regardless of whether or not you actually are Rei fans, that has literally no bearing whatsoever to whether I like Rei or not (which I do -- she is best girl.)

>disowning almost everything else that isn't NGE
But I am doing exactly that. It's you who's clinging to 2.0 and 1.0, because you never cared about Rei or the quality of the story.
You only want your fanfiction version of Rei. This will be even more obvious when 4.0 comes out and all you Pokanamitards start fawning over it because Shinji will be reunited with Pokanami.

the whole of Rebuild sucks. It sucked since 1.0. It should have never been made. Anno is a money grubbing hack. And you are his enablers.

In other words, you are the one hung up on the issue.

Then you're pre-emptively bashing Rei fans and making up theories where Rebuild, something you allegedly hate, is actually "all about Rei" and people will "love it when final comes out". You sound 100% like a butthurt Asukafag saying that, or a Kaworufag that has realized how shit Rebuild is and now doesn't accept responsibility.

You have no capability for rational and reasonable discourse whatsoever. Your behavior makes no fucking sense, and is basically indistinguishable from Asukafag projection.

Pretty fucking sure it's not even a Rei fan, dude. It's one of the autistic eva retards that has been stalking our threads. Don't you think it's convenient?

I never said Rebuild is all about Rei. All I said is that she is the second most prominent character after Shinji and that their relationship is one of the central threads of the story, Rei for example being the reason why Shinji accepts to pilot Eva (just as in the TV series) and continues doing it. All of this is fact. Gendo even says at one point in 1.0 that they have to get Rei and Shinji close because it is instrumental to their plans.

>you're pre-emptively bashing Rei fans
Once again: you are not Rei fans.

No way in hell. No, no, no. 1.0 was a hackneyed rehash and everything in it other than the redone Ramiel fight is worse than the TV series. 2.22 is a clusterfuck that butchers the characters, especially Rei who's reduced to a moeblob.

The Asukafag is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a scoundrel, parasite, shitposter, falseflagger, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him a Asukafag and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: "I've been found out."

the only scene 1.11 messed up was Rei's smile, and 2.22 was good all around, the manga was good and you didn't even say how it was bad just that it was. yes 1.11 was a "rehash" but what were you expecting, it was called REBUILD. also Rei was never a moe blob in the rebuild, i don't you've ever watced a series that has actual moe blobs, like K-ON.

dont respond with the same arguements you use in every thread

I bet you hated Azumanga daioh too

I watched the original NGE series and loved it. I felt content and it made me a happier person. I never knew about End of Eva and when i found out a few years back i just didnt watch it. In hindsight, it clears up a lot of convos ive had with fans where we both thought we were on the same page
Anyway does that make me a non-fan? I love the original but still dont plan on seeing The End of Evangelion or the rebuilds anytime soon...
Am i a bad person?

Not buying it. All you do is bitch and whine without having any good reason to back it up. 1.11 is almost the same as NGE, 2.22 is different yet similar enough to work with for two more movies, providing a good background and setup for Rei's character.

>b-but she cooked and was cute!
so? Rei's character can handle that, you dimwit. What it CANT handle is not doing anything else BUT cooking and being cute. At that point it ceases to be Rei, and that problem lies empirically and objectively with 3.33 which went all-in to destroy Rei.

All your posts in this thread are self-contradictory fake arguments that only a fucking zealot Rei hater could ever buy into.

EoE is a retcon. I actually recommend avoiding to watch it. The only reason Anno did it is to give Asuka a more prominent role.

>3.33 went all-in to destroy Rei
I can agree with that. 3.33 was the worst of the 3 films so far and ReiQ is one of the dumbest addition to Evangelion. But there are far more egregious problems with 3.33 and Rebuild in general, something brain-dead waifufags like you are incapable of grasping.
For a "remake", merely being the same is not good enough. It also needs to be a good work in and of itself. There are several problems with 1.11. As a film it is structured very poorly. The Dick-shaped (the shape is not accidental) angel fight is dramatically unnecessary, because Touji and Kensuke have a vastly reduced role in Rebiuld, and that fight was all about Shinji's relationship and a way for himself to measure himself up with his male peers (size up each others' dicks). That element is stripped away in 1.11 and it becomes a pointless (and pretty lame) action scene. Then there is the slightly faster pacing, which ruins tension in several scenes because the film wants to go through the narrative checklist and reach the end of episode 6 in order to introduce Asuka in the second one. Also, its animation is, in too many cuts, simply not up to par, being recycled animation from a 1995 TV show. 1.11 is closer to a cheap TV film than a cinematic movie. That is also true for layouts and storyboarding which are very uncinematic, because obviously, they originate in NGE. Compare with EoE, which had production values fit for the big screen.

1.11 was cheap, half-assed mediocrity. It is noteworthy that your only problem with it is the awfully redrawn scene with Rei in the plug after the Ramiel fight, which doesn't come anywhere close to the one in Death (which was, surprisingly, for a film that also recycled most of its cuts, a whole lot more cinematic on the whole than 1.11) but that scene serves as a good example, since the whole film is done like that. You just didn't pay it any mind, because you're a waifufag brainlet.

The problems with Rebuild start with 1.11.

For the cuteness, obviously. As to why here in particular, because Rei is the cutest. (She also happens to be the best, most interesting character in NGE, but that doesn't exactly pertain to this board.)

I prefer the TV ending but I'd really recommend watching EoE just for the sake of seeing it. At the very least it's on another level to the Rebuilds, which start out as completely unnecessary and go downhill from there.

Your arguments can be entirely reduced without losing any of their points to an expression of autistic obsession with rejecting differences or change. You have a string of negatively connotated observations, which while true, fail to make a single prevailing point. When taking into account waifufaggotry such as Asukafaggotry, we call this "proxy-argumentation" - i.e you scratch and nitpick at every difference in a vague and condescending way, avoiding the actual gripe you have with the subject matter, as in the Asukafag's case: the fact that Rei is in it and isn't being shat on outright. Revealing your actual gripe with the series would instantly reveal the pettiness of your opinion.

The problem you seem to have can't be applied to any of the movies by themselves, but the very concept of a movie remake fo Evangelion in the first place. Again, the autistic obsession with differing detail serves no point when it's implicitly understood that with a different format, there are re-organizations to content. The question that ultimately matters is this: "does 1.11 provide an understandable self-contained story which also constructively builds it's characters?" - which both 1.11 and 2.22 does, but 3.33 fails at. 1 and 2 work by themselves and in context with each other, but 3 fails this and adding insult to injury, is pure otaku pandering.

>>3062562
>>3062652
While one can speculate whether or not it was done to give Asuka a more prominent role, the result speaks for itself: Asuka wasn't excessively glorified in EoE, but rather continues her string of failures coming from NGE. It gives Asuka no concrete development either. Moreover it lets other characters shine, more strongly than Asuka.

Call EoE what you want - a sequel, an expansion, a retcon - it's in and by itself worthy of being NGE's successor.

>>3062570
Given your tone I take it that your arguments were soundly debunked and you're bitter that you were wrong.

Moreover, your strong anti-"pokanami" rhetoric is in and by itself nothing by a strawman. Rei became what she is because she was a well-written character that offered mystery, shock, beauty, catharsis and development that was believable and meaningful - it appealed to the viewer and achieves being unique. That's no small feat. It doesn't involve just being cute or beautiful, because there's been thousands of such characters in anime and manga before Rei. It certainly helps though.

There is quite literally nothing wrong with wanting to see a character like Rei grow positively - in fact, if that doesn't appeal to you knowing the series from the original, I say you're sick and your opinion warrants no attention. So if Rei wants to poka poka, let her poka poka. There is no problem - unless like mentioned earlier, there is nothing else BUT poka poka. Because Rei is so much more than a few cute moments, she won't be "Rei" any more if she doesn't have a character proper. Again remember the references to other "cute girls" in japanese culture who never get recognized or popular because they were JUST cute.

That's why "pokanami" poses no problem, and by extension, neither does 2.22 or 1.11. 3.33 however sunk the believability of every single character including Shinji and the only part of the audience left still giving a damn and taking these characters as anything but pandering are obsessed otaku incapable of admitting the shallowness of what they worship.

This is also why complaining about "pokanami" is a retarded asuka and kaworu-fag thing to do, because these fanbases are truly degenerate and inherent waifufags, in particular Kaworu fans. It's only an expression of their jealousy of Rei, seeing as objectively and empirically - Kaworu and Asuka were more "moe-ified" than Rei.

Sorry, but them's the breaks. It's exactly like it says, that "opinion" boils down to an obsession with differences and unrealistic expectations. If the criticism is logically equivalent to elaborating the differences in movie and TV-format, then that's quite simply how it is.

Oh get the fuck outta here, this has and is the prevailing explanation of the Rebuilds and have ever since Anno said as much himself been accepted fact since he admitted his own preferences way back then.

What you're doing isn't even a strawman of what I said. To say you did that would be to flatter you.

For the record, I'm adding this first so you have no excuse to have missed it by skimming my posts: No one is saying 1.11 or 2.22 much less 3.33 are collectively or individually better than their corresponding or at least comparable parts of the original. The problem is that you engage in proxy-argumentation.

Your arguments express problems concerning the differences and not the similarities. Hence I'm right.
Adding that "rehashing it was a mistake" is as per the arguments you made fundamentally a complaint about the differences and not the similarity, as you criticized it BECAUSE IT FAILED TO BE THE SAME. Not because it was the exact same.

In short your criticism is too vague to have meaning and too unpragmatic to actually provide material for further discussion. Now, I know for a fact that I'm not stupid - so every time you try insulting me you're just wasting your time.

The fact remains that the first and second Rebuild movie, with and without differences were on their own sufficiently good to excite and create a good story by the time it ended. That certainly doesn't qualify as "shit" unless you're autistically obsessed and like I said, set the bar unrealistically high - to the point where debating or discussing the subject matter becomes pointless.

So yes, your pokanami-rhetoric is a strawman. Your arguments re: 1.11 can indeed be boiled down to an obsession with the fact that it's different. I'm sorry you're too much of a brainlet to understand the depths of self-delusion you've fallen into.

If there's anything we can agree on, it's the things I mentioned first in this post. The Rebuilds are shit, but it's not like they didn't have potential or things that worked well.

>Your arguments express problems concerning the differences and not the similarities.
And once again, I stopped reading here. I am talking about Rebuild and Pokanami/RebuildRei IN TOTO. I merely bring up NGE as a point of comparison, since, you know, it is the base model, the original. Whatever stuff in Rebuild there is that is similar to NGE is not automatically good, because it is not a part of NGE but of Rebuild, and as such it must be judged within its own narrative context. And it is in that context that Pokanami sucks. She is a husk of her former self. A moeblob. She comes across as fake and her scenes fall flat because she is stripped of any depth in favour of droopy waifu bait crap.
