Jeebuz! That zombie of a fukked up anime franchise still not dead?
Observing a manic depressive anime genius’ decent into the darkness has stopped being funny a long time ago. The last couple movies with incoherent storytelling and only slight variations on the overall plot didn’t add any much needed informations or conclusions. And hearing now that the new reheated stew will again come with only minor changes … oh wow. Eva started as an exciting anime with a likeable cast of characters and a slight hunch of “something is not right” in the late 90s. And since then we got some more movies and series but never anything satisfylingly coherent.
I have myself divorced from Neon Genesis Evangelion already long ago. I wrote about it in this blog and was less and less happy with the sadness instead of entertainment. Guess I’m not gonna watch the latest cash grab.
Only thing we learned was that the creator Hideaki Anno was falling more and more into a depressive state and projected his sickness into the characters of his anime show. It really is a friggn wonder how that shite could ever become so popular and stay popular … and rake in billions of Woolongs! … for over 30 years! 😮
4D? 4fuckingD? How are we supposed to imagine that, please? All I know is the 5th Dimension. 🙂
