Picked up the new Evangelion 1.01 movie today. A series reboot for the Neon Genesis Evangelion series that broke all kinds of TV records back in its day. Hopefully this will have a better ending to the series than the original TV anime had. I got the ending and the way it tied in with Shinji’s emotions but it was really fit together properly. Too many plot threads were just simply dropped and completely ignored for it to feel properly wrapped up. Rei is idolized beyond almost another anime character, even with the moe explosion of recent years, But to me her character was to dereft of any emotion (deliberately) to have that appeal.
