brand new Eva over a re-cap movie any day.
Rebuild of Evangelion movies are also recaps :) (with newer graphic but still recaps :P)


1.0 is a retelling/remake or even a whole different universe, 2.0 will be the same with supposedly a lot of new material(you can tell from the preview) and 3.0 + 4.0 are completely new films.

e- what Islaya said

It is. The first movie covers the first half of the series and the second movie that comes out next year covers from the 7 year skip until the end.

Not really, the RoE series is an alternate re-telling of the series with new characters and events, the GL movies are just re-used footage from the TV series telling the exact same story again.

there nothing incredible, all the scene look like the tv show =/


It is, there just re-editing the TV series together into a movie with only a handful of new scenes, if any at all. I'm still mad GAINAX pushed Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 back 3 months to put this out first so they wouldn't compete with each other at the theaters. I like Gurren Lagann and all, but I would much rather see the brand new Eva over a re-cap movie any day.

It seemed more of an announcement than a trailer
Nice to hear Shokotan's song for the movie, though :)

Look just like any random TTGL AMV/Trailer... nothing interesting.

What the hell is the point of a recap movie?

I actually thought they were going to do what Bones is doing with the Eureka 7 movie. You know, the whole "same characters-new mythos" kind of thing.Shame, I wasn't crazy about the TV series, would have been nice.

Oh.... another recap... so sad.... but at least we'll have Kamina :)

Is this a recap movie ?
or does it have a new story ?

I bet that in a couple of years we'll get a rebuild of TTGL.


Looks like recap...
That would be boringXD

Meh trailer showed nothing.

Even if it being just a recap, they should at least throw in a couple of new scenes.

Hopefully it won't be one enormous recap as they're suggesting with that trailer D:

On the plus side...more Nia I guess.

Besides that Gainax just failed completely with that trailer.

But, we still can't judge until it actually comes out.
