Anno was obviously heavily inspired on Freud to make the series, there were too many things in there that a freudian would recognize immediately (which I can't really say what they are, since I don't remember them tongue.gif).


Spoiler

Also, episodes are called things like "Mother Is The First Other" (According to Freud male children fell in love with their mothers) and "Thanatos" which was Freud's term for the 'Death Instinct'.  The Hedgehog's dilemma was often mentioned by Freud (although not his own creation iirc), and internal conflict forms a large part of Freud's theories.  It's quite feasible that the three pilots represent the three parts of the mind (according to Freud), with Asuka as the 'Id', Shinji as the 'Ego' and Rei as the 'Superego'.

Psychology is such an interesting topic  wink.gif .

I've never heard about it untill I unknowingly downloaded a...an explicite footage of Neon Genesis Eva, off of limewire because it was labled, "Puddy Tang".

Um, the voices were great dispite the crappy quality from the clip. I keept hearing, "Moto! Moto! E-BAI-ME!" Pardon my mispelling but I wonder what that means. The graphics was sufficent for it's time dispite the clip's poor quality.

I would gladly upload the file but it's 100mgs and I dont think anyone will care to watch it.

This was definitely one of the best anime series I have ever watched, if not the first.

My favorite anime series for sure. Shinji was the perfect anti-hero. We're encourage to identify with him, but he's a pathetic, depressed wimp. The whole series was intense, emotional and down right trippy. I personally loved End Of Evangellion, mainly because my video store didn't have episodes 25 or 26, so it's the only ending i know.
I'm currently 28 episodes into Full Metal Alchemist, which is good, but not quite up there with Evangellion imo.

NGE was the first anime I've watched and I still watch it time from time. I loved the psychological issues they dealt with, and plenty of action to boot biggrin.gif

To the above, 25/26 was pretty crappy compared to EoE imo. They were financially limited though, I think.

Dunno if this was mentioned, but they're making a new set of movies, Rebuild of Evangelion ohmy.gif

I hear a rumour that they are making a live action, Hollywood Neon Genesis movie, to be released around 2010. I can only hope they don't mess up the characters and turn them into all-american action heroes with no personality/issues. That would be horrible. But if they try and stay true to the original, it could be good.

Well, the movies I'm talking about is this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebuild_of_Evangelion

Apparently they're making 4 movies total, 3 to retell the story with added stuff and the 4th for an alternate ending (when you thought they couldn't make another... lol)

I find it unrealistic and disturbing that in various mechas, like Gundam and Evangelion, psychologically disturbed youngsters are often entrusted to pilot giant robots...  I mean, wtf?  They can't find more qualified pilots?

any of them.

Even the re-timed 2.20 subs are watchable (though there is one scene and several misc. lines that are unTL'd)

If you are anal retentive enough to give more than two shits about whether you will watch a BD downscale or DVD upscale for your 720p movie, you are a faggot.

As long as you don't pick the 2.20 re-timed subs (the very bottom of the anime-english sub list with no sub group tag), you will get subs that should mostly work and are mostly seeded.

There are 5 to choose from, pick one. ANY ONE.

DGz subs were good enough IMO, THORA is TOPTIER of bd though so I might switch.
