End of Evangelion by far.

EoE is the greatest movie I've ever seen. Period.

None of the Rebuild movies even hold a candle to it.

Really no point in Death and Rebirth, unless you want a NGE summary + preview of the movie you've already seen.

3.0 isn't really all that bad. I mean, it was bad enough that I couldn't give it a score, but until 4.0 comes out to clear up any misunderstandings, I'm holding off on saying, "it's utter shit."

The theories around it make 3.0 appealing to a degree.

I'd be more shocked if Death & Rebirth was someone's favorite.

I can't choose between EoE and 2.22, but I did give 2.22 a 10/10 so I'll go with that one.
I'm still hopeful for 4.0 though.

I have not been affected by any anime as much as I was by the last 5 minutes of EoE, so considering the awesome (quite literally) last scene of EoE, I will have to say that nothing compares to EoE.

As for animation, music and action sequences, nothing comes close to 2.22. I strongly disliked the crappy CG throughout 3.33 and was very disappointed by it. The only thing that came close to 2.22 in 3.33 was the OST, which in my opinion, was still not as good as 2.22. Oh, yeah... the actions scenes in 3.33 sucked too.

Maybe Rebuild 4 will top it in one way or another.
I'm also filled with pure-hearted ulterior motives.

End of Evangelion. Then again I've only seen it and D&R and haven't even touched the rebuilds yet, so pretty easy choice for me to make.

It is really tough picking between 2.22 and End of Evangelion, but in the end I would probably say End of Evangelion. It really is one of a kind and the amount of mindfuckery I experienced from it upon my first viewing was astounding.

When 4.0 is released, I will pull out all of my EVA. My imported Original Series boxed set, my Platinum Edition Boxed Set, D&R/EOE (I have them on a single disc, also imported) the Director's Cuts (Ressurection/Genesis Reborn) (Forgot those were included in the Platinum Edition)...and 1.0-.30.

I will re-watch everything from start to finish.

Then, after nitpicking every little detail and all the differences between them, I will return to this thread in 2023 and cast my vote.

Hmm, it's really hard to chose between Evangelion 2.0 and EoE. Both are spectacular movies, but honestly i have to say 2.0 is better. I can't really give it to EoE because the last half of that movie (episode 26), even though is was visually breathtaking, plot wise I had legitimately no clue what the heck i was looking at or what what happening (i don't think anyone did), so because of that i can't really say EoE is better, but i still think it has one of best mecha fight scenes I've ever seen (go berserk Asuka!).

That, Komm Susser Todd/ 3rd impact is my favorite scene out of anything, absolute masterpiece. I loved 2.22 though, still need to watch 3.

EoE no doubt about it. Asuka was such a boss, that hospital scene in the beginning makes me laugh every time, and everything actually made sense to me. And man was it awesome.

From an action perspective nothing will ever top or come close to 2.0

However EoE is EoE, so...

It's the greatest anime I've ever seen and one of the greatest movies. Only shit like Pulp Fiction and Shawshank Redemption can come close. If you think 2.0 is better then you're shallow imo. It has nice action and animation, but it killed what made evangelion great.

So far the only thing that I miss from the original that they'll probably cut out of the rebuilds is

End of Evangelion

For the Rebuild though, I much prefer the first one compared to the rest.

I could understand the Rebuilds lacking the mind raping, but what two main things that bothered me from 2.22 was:
-The Unit 03 situation was modified more than it should of
-Mari

Yeah, they're going to have focus a bit on Mari in 4.44 if they don't want her to be completely useless. As of now it feels like Anno just added her in to fill Evangelion's lack of chicks with glasses.

Pretty much yeah. She's basically the 'perfect' Asuka here. Loves to pilot and finds it weird to not appreciate the job but still has no backstory...

Comical to say the least but in 3.0, she was basically the only fanservice there at the very end. Like, in the last bits you see of her, she's there with boob jiggling and then signs off.

Oh Anno.

I was moslty pissed about the simplification of the characters. It's only because the original series already developed the characters that people aren't complaining about that.

End of Evangelion is my favorite, it's the only movie I've rated 10 on MAL so far. It just felt like a perfect and satisfying end for NGE, something the original finale in the series wasn't (although I really liked the "congratulations" scene).
Out of the Rebuilds, I'd say I like 1.0. the most. Yeah, it's pretty much the first episodes of NGE with prettier animation, but that's probably why I like it. The focus is on both Shinji and Rei, and they both get the same character developement they had in the original. Asuka in 2.0. on the other hand is like a cardboard cutout compared to the original. Her character was completely flattened and it felt like she was there just for the fanservice. That's probably the main reason I don't like 2.0. that much.

End of Evangelion is great, but idk I really like how unique 3.0 is from a story telling perspective. I've liked how the manga handles the events of end of evangelion better as well so it's kind of hampered my enjoyment outside of a few scenes.

Though the Asuka fight is still very much superior to any other fight in the series by a long shot.

Even worse, she barely says "anta baka" at all in 3.0.

Asuka's character development being somewhere between nonsensical and nonexistent bothers me less somehow, even though Asuka is my favorite EVA character.
