Evangelion 3.0 Impression (Camrip ver.)

Evangelion 3.0 in a nutshell
Haha is it time already? Well let's get on my impression of Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. Oh in case you're wondering, of course this is gonna be full of spoilers.

Hey looks it's everyone and their grandpa's favorite redhead tsundere. Now with eyepatch add-on for your fetish fuel!

Meet new Misato and Ritsuko. She's now the captain of a flying battle ship ala Yamato. No, really.

...And there he is, our main character which is probably one of the most hated protagonist in the history of Japanese cartoon.

Oh ha ha ha. Shinji status: [x] Told

Toji's imouto is cute.

Wait, his little sister? But she looks as old as Shinji? How that's possible?
Well it's because...

Yep, 3.0 took place 14 years after the event in last movie. B-but how come Shinji still looks like the same as ever?

The answer is LCL magic a.k.a. The Curse of Eva. I think the liquid prevents aging. Or probably it's just because they're Asians. I dunno.

Suddenly Rei clone bursting out to pick up Shinji.

The organization Misato is helming now is aiming to stop Shinji to pilot Eva again. They tried to stop Shinji.

But of course they failed because if they were succeed the movie would end right there.

Shinji went back to the good ol NERV headquarter where he met Kaworu...

...Cyborg Gendou...

....and of course naked Rei. No Evangelion anime would be complete without naked Rei.

Guess what was happening here. Protip: it involved something gay.

 DUN DUN DUN!! Here comes another big revelation: The Third Impact happened and it was triggered by Shinji. Apparently almost all of humanity wiped by it. Well shit.


Suddenly a shogi match out of nowhere.

 Fuyutsuki told Shinji a tale of her mother. Of course with some 2deep4u imagery.


 The following scenes are familiar so I'm just gonna to skip them.


Kaworu told Shinji that the only things that can redo his action and fix the world are two lances that buried in depth of terminal dogma of Nerv HQ.

They piloted the new two-seat type Evangelion, Eva-13 and headed to bring back the lances. Rei followed them as backup.

Wille sent Asuka and Mari to stop them. Fight is unavoidable.

Unfortunately the battle scene in this camrip is very blurry that I hardly can tell what happened in the screen.

Long story short all of these are according to Gendou masterplan to create the Fourth Impact. As Shinji got the lances, soon shit was tumbling down.



Fortunately, Kaworu saved the day! He successfully stopped the Fourth Impact from happening by sacrificing his life. (Is it just me or Kaworu is less annoying here than his counterpart in the series? I actually kinda like him in this movie, no homo)

His death is less tragic (in fact I laughed everytime I look at the screenshot) than in the series but of course our 14-year old boy main protagonist still scarred by the sight. Well watching your friend lost their head isn't really nice.

And so the world is once again saved by bunch of teenagers.

But wait! It's not over yet!

Rest in peace Walkman-kun. You've done well to survive Third and Fourth Impact.

 The end.

Oh and preview for the next and last movie.

Final Impact? Doh ho ho Anno you.

Okay last note from me.

I think this movie is pretty good, might even better than previously two movies (since this one has much more new content) if only not for the slow start and the lack of battle scene. The movie started to pick up its pace at almost 1 hour which is considered really slow if you expected mecha actions. Another one of my complain is Mari is arguably useless in this movie even though she's the star (kinda) of the previous installment. I know we don't have much time for introducing all new characters but at least they could try.

I agree that this movie needs to be watched in glorious High Definition for full enjoyment. The last battle and the Fourth Impact scene are really blurry in the camrip. I can only imagine what it feels like watching those scenes in 1080p monitor (which I don't actually have). If you cannot wait for BD release and wanting to watch this camrip it's fine. It's not as bad as Shoushitsu camrip back then (which unwatchable by me so didn't). It has a little sound problem but still bearable. The video quality is well you can see it yourself in the screenshot.

I don't care whatever people said about this rebuild installment, I still enjoy it very much. I consider it really worth the wait. Last but not least, the bottomline of Evangelion 3.0 is, as any of the stuff from Evangelion series, what the fuck did I just watch?
