Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
Animation • NC-17 • 2009 • 1 hr 52 min
Among the rebuilds this is the odd one out. Kinda slice of life-ish but still enjoyable in my opinion.
Fast-pacing action but not only that. You can see how the characters develop, and then, an unexpected development.
Basically just episodes 7-18 of the show, with some changes. Said changes range between good and bad, and balance each other out.
The second film recaps the series while blending new elements that are surprising and welcome, diving into new territory that may bewilder.
Beautifully animated, very fun and often very emotional. An absolute spectacle.
A nice re-take on the Evangelion franchise which captures the essence of the anime and develops a more tragic finale for this part.
The best of the bunch, adds more character development to the girls of the show, plus a sensational ending.
Oh god it's getting weird all over again
I really love Rei’s development here especially. Such a vast improvement over the original series. Everything else is really great, too.
The movies starting to get their own soul, seperating from the show and giving a pretty tense ending.
