I was never a huge fan of Rei. I don't really understand why she's so popular. I'm not a big fan of the TV series, but I really enjoyed this version. And so pretty...

@Sigue: I really don't remember being as irked by her in the original TV series. Though I was never particularly impressed with her, either. I don't "like" Asuka, but I think she has a more interesting psychology. Or psychosis, if you prefer.

If this is for Evangelion 1.11, why is it linked to Evangelion 1.0?

@Sigue: i'm with you on the lack of interest in rei.  never got her appeal at all.  though i do love love love Yuki from Haruhi, and the two are pretty damn similar.  i think the difference is yuki's stoicism is frequently played for laughs, and rei's is supposed to be super mysterious and meaningful.  borrring.

The lack of Rei love is depressing :( ...
 
I'm gonna go cut myself in my Rei-loving corner now.

Rei's personality differs between manga and anime. Asuka's character is mostly developed in the anime, while Rei is developed in the manga; she is more involved in certain stories and certainly closer to Shinji.
 
I agree that in the first movie there is no much to say about her,  but in the second film things change...like a lot. She stops being Nerv's lab rat/ the girl who bangs the boss (I loved that remark) and turns slowly into a human being. (Sorry if I made some spoilers.)

@constanzadellarosa: The manga has had a lot more time to develop stuff, as it usually does. In this case, Sadahiro's manga started being released before the anime came out, but they were developed concurrently...the difference being that the manga is still running 15 years later! 
 
Which reminds me: did anyone else catch the comment (which I included as a clip in this review) about the script written for these children 14 years ago? I'm a little conflicted on whether I think this refers to the original series' creation as well as the kids' births; when the movie first screened in Japan it was 2007, which was only 12 years after the anime series began airing-- but it can easily take a couple of years to develop an anime, according to my understanding...

Was it just me or was the translation in the subtitles pretty meh? Not Shoko Ono's best work AT ALL. One would think Funimation would hire an editor to clean it up, at least. Full of inaccurate technojargon and awkward wordings. :(

You know, I hadn't really noticed. Early on I used to be a snot about watching the shows in every combination (particularly english dub with english subtitles) but i quickly learned that it was more distracting than helpful, as no release was free of huge, sweeping dialog adjustments.
 
So yeah, one pass on Japanese, one on English, but I guess I was on so much Eva autopilot I might have overlooked it.

Good luck on that one, that still have yet to announce it state side. Hopefully having the whole "gang" together for Eva 1.0 made them want to rush it together, for efficiency 's sake, but still.

It might be my imagination but did they try and soften rei?if so i think it was a bad choice.
 
Misato eng dub = A OK
 
Fight scene versus the blue diamond angel was ten times better than the origional but the whole berserker fight was way worse.Definately looks a lot better than the origional.

I'll agree with you on the blue diamond, but what was so bad about the berserker fight?
