New single and the theme song for the final film in the Shin Evangelion anime series. Co-produced by A.G. Cook:
I about a month ago went from having seen nothing, to having seen everything Evangelion.Are the films worth digging out? Are they just straight high budget re-makes of the TV episodes?
"A sudden shift in tone occurred in the series around episode 16, partially due to scheduling restraints (drastically reducing the number of frames that could be drawn for each episode) and the sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway on March 20, 1995 (with Anno removing elements of the plot he thought would be too similar to the real-life attack). While Anno had promised early on that "every episode [would give]...something for the fans to drool over," he began either removing fan service or juxtaposing it with scenes of emotional trauma. The problematic schedule and Gainax's reputation for delivering episode prints at the last minute also resulted in more experimental approaches, with several episodes reusing shots, using uncommonly long still frames, flashing frames of often rhetorical introspective (Japanese) text and the final two episodes changed from their original concept into a psychological analysis of the main characters
Eh? I don't think this is a majorly out-of-step point of view, most of the internet seems to agree this is an out of the gate brilliant song
