Neither is the newer anime or manga? Anime ends with the viewer finding out about the Dark Continent, and the manga is up to the boat trip to said continent. Kurapika's POV. I'm guessing you never got to the York new part? Kurapika takes over and becomes the protagonist. It becomes a lot more detective/analytical and serious when it's his part.

but they're planning on actually finishing this one, presumably

that's the other thing about it, because i prefer my stories to be finished before i jump into them

From what I've read, the first couple of episodes are more slapsticky and self contained before the show starts getting more serious and story heavy, so see if you can stick with it

There's something about these 80s-90s hand drawn animation styles that makes it so much more pleasant to watch

I tend to appreciate the animation and art a lot more. Not to discredit the hard work that still goes into modern anime, but the old ones have a nice charm

Excuse me, I'm full of dog poison
But like, berserk is all about how shitty humanity is. It's exactly like devil man just with shittier animation and backwards sexist attitudes.

Plus the dude has a fuck off huge sword.
that's all well and good (except for the sword thing, big swords are lame), but i already brought all of that up

in the same way that i'm not going to trash a show based on its premise alone (golden boy), i'm not going to like something just because of its premise alone, either

the story of devilman precedes berserk and was actually the direct inspiration for it, and berserk doesn't seem to offer much beyond what i can't get from devilman, which is smarter, or texhnolyze, which is darker

there's ways of going about the message without coming across as childish or hamfisted, and to me, berserk fails

But the dude has a crossbow/cannon arm.

Much like Pink Floyd's album "The Dark Side of the Moon" is rumored to synchronize with The Wizard of Oz (1939), this film is said to match with Nine Inch Nails' album "The Downward Spiral". If played together, "Hurt" will coincide with Third Impact. For this to work properly you must start the album on the opening slate with the vertical, white characters and you must pause the album during the intermission credits.
oh my fucking god

guess who's trying this RIGHT NOWWWWW

it actually kinda works somewhat

there are multiple points where it's like "okay this doesn't really fit at all" but i was taken off guard by the number of beats that would actually match up exactly with what's going on, or a song/lyrics just generally matching the vibe of the scene

Spoiler
hurt fittingly so perfectly over the third impact is a little bit too much for me to handle

big man with a gun playing during asuka's death scene + a warm place playing the moment shinji gets back into the sky and finds out she's dead was pretty perfect too

heresy and march of the pigs during the initial SEELE raid was pretty awesome

especially the latter half

link is NSFW and also spoilery obviously

So which part of Evangelion is good? Just that movie?
kinda all of it? i would describe the movie as the best part though, yeah

it's a strange case where if you know what it's trying to do, and you can stomach the first half, which is not as good and has a lot of really dumb moments, but has necessary character developments and stuff that you need for certain emotional payoffs to work later, then you're going to have a pretty good time

dead-ass, even though the show is still a 6-borderline-7 for me, and EoE is an 8, the franchise taken as a whole would probably be a 9/10 for me if i still didn't have the (apparently disappointing) rebuild movies to watch

but if you find yourself losing patience with the characters' neuroticisms, which i can't really blame you for, then it'll only start becoming apparent what the show is really trying to do around the second half of the show, where it explodes in quality, and then EoE caps it all off with the most artistically gratifying mindfuck i have ever seen in my life

but that was in part due to the fact that i watched the entire show first, sooo

the average person who's into this type of show, i'd recommend watching at least six episodes
personally, i was glued to the screen after episode 4

Garlemald did nothing wrong.
What did you think of episodes 25 & 26 in comparison to EoE?

EoE is also full of even more crazy trivia than what was on that site you linked.

if i didn't already know that EoE existed prior to watching those last two episodes, i probably wouldn't have liked them as much as i did

but i did know, so i was able to enjoy them a lot more than the average person i think

just knowing how hard the mecha shit fell by the wayside towards the end of that series is incredibly refreshing, because now i don't have to feel as embarrassed to admit that i enjoyed a mecha show, since it's not really a mecha show (though that does sort of complicate things whenever i try to talk about it with the uninitiated)

i found the philosophizing really fun, and i think they explored shinji's broken psychology in a very beautiful and satisfying way, especially considering how much i'm able to relate with all his existential issues

i still prefer EoE of course, because i'm just a sucker for big, depressing, mindfucky, "spectacle"-type films, and it's obviously cooler to see EVERY single character get their arc fulfilled rather than just shinji's

but rather than view it as a replacement, i prefer to look at the two endings as complementary, so that way, i can have fun trying to parse what that all "means" for myself
