Finished watching the rebuild evangelion movies, they're ok, perhaps they're better upon a rewatch. Too much action which the original didn't need. It's almost like Dragon Ball Super where it became what fans wanted more than what it was actually. I do appreciate all the confusing **** that needs a few rewatches to fully understand. Not better than the original, but alright.

I hope your roommate didn't notice that you went without him.

Can’t wait for gkids to release the show itself on blu-ray. Which looks like pre-orders will go up in 2 days on their website.

For Evangelion they had 3 versions you can order. Ultimate, collectors and Standard. Ultimate and Collectors are sold out but standard is still around but the standards version only has the Netflix Dub.

I haven't seen the new Evangelion movies, they're just re-tellings of the same story like Sailor Moon Crystal, right?

First one is almost a near exact copy of the first few episodes. Second movie has a few more differences but the ending is entirely different from anything the show did. Because of that different ending to the original episode movie 3 takes place 14 years later, it's completely different so you could just start off from movie 3. But if you don't care and just want a sequel movie to the original series just watch the second half of the fourth movie and pretend it takes place after end of Evangelion

I heard there were significant differences. I couldn’t stand the first season of it. All I wanted was for Shinji and Asuka to die at the end....

The whole anime is supposed to be about mentally unstable teens.

Finished watching the 4 Evangelion reboot movies, I honestly can't say I cared for these at all. Really surprised reading the positive reviews for these online, I thought they were much worse than the original series and a lot of the themes of the show were lost (or done completely differently and worse).

I honestly didn't know what I was watching at times. What they did with Rei throughout the movies was disappointing. The gay character was kinda pointless in these movies compared to the original series, and Asuka didn't have as many good scenes.

Watched the first two films, but I think I’ll watch the other two films after I watch the series.

ResetEra is angry about the sexualization of the female characters in the Evangelion movies:

This thread is gold.

Started reading two series that was recommended to me. Both are great.

DanDaDan. This one is neat little battle manga about a girl that believes in ghosts and a boy that believes I aliens. A little raunchy in it’s comedy. But still good.

Oshi no Ko. This is an interesting one. It has idols mixed with reincarnation with a murder mystery.

If they dont like fan service, dont watch **** with fan service. Apparently the Fire Force mangaka is telling them to piss off in the manga.

Started reading a manga called Rokudou no Onna-tachi. It’s a series where a character uses a charm that’s supposed to protect him from bad people but instead it makes delinquent girls fall in love with him.

Really, really good.

I have been watching an anime called Windy Tales.

It is incredibly soothing.

Been rereading some Abnormal-kei Joshua to get some inspiration for a book I’m wanting to write. It’s a pretty fun harem with nothing but Yandere. Sad the series has been on hiatus since 2015

Okay, so the latest chapter of My Hero Academia ( Boku no Hero Academia ) has been officially released.

I still feel that it's incredibly disappointing. Like, I haven't laughed this hard for a long time. And it's already on top of a manga that's currently trajecting downwards ...

At this point, it's just ridiculous.

I thought that the traitor was appropriate, considering the chapters a while back where That Guy and Deku bonded over the shared problem they had. I actually though that the person who found them was really going to be the traitor.

At least they are picking back up on that multi-year old plot thread.
