anime review: Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo
Also the title itself spells out my thoughts as a whole.
Okay so I expected a continuation from where we left off in the 2nd movie but we a get a major time skip instead. 14 years has passed and for the whole movie, I’m waiting for someone to explain what happened. No bothers to explain to shitji, not even that cute little nurse. All we know is shitji caused it but none of the whys. Did I miss something? Was there an OVA, movie, or a special that I wasn’t aware of that takes place in between these 2 movies? Is it another bullshit marketing scheme where I have to read some spinoff story manga/novel to know the events? What the hell happened to Rei? Asuka’s return turned out for the better but why the eye patch? Marie, well, she’s a bit more useful here. Where’s Kaji? Classmates? Pen Pen?
Here’s somethings I was able to confirm:
- Shitji’s still a whiny little bitch
- Shitji’s a very definition of an immature child
- Shitji regressed
- This whole movie goes nowhere
I was waiting 3-4 years for this? What a disappointment. At least the animation and music were solid.
You know what this reminds me of? Nadesico and Gatekeepers. TV series was good, but the god-awful sequel movie/OVA.
