I'm not talking about the mecha animation but the characters, they used 3d models to trace the movements over them you will see what I'm talking when 3.0+1.0 is released overseas. >>19542818
I know taste is subjective but 3.0 introduced a lot stuff that has been dropped in 3.0+1.0, the last movie did 3.0 retroactively worse anyway 3.0 is dumb and artificially extended the length of the movie ("everyone is mad at shinji for destroying the world") but then we get 3.0+1.0 and nobody is mad at shinji over that and they even admit that how the handle the situation was wrong which I have been telling for over 8 years.
Also all the characters that were introduced are dropped hard, the 14 years between 2.0-3.0 is not explained at all (they hinted shinji really didn't destroy the world), Asuka having a crush on a boy she met for two weeks doesn't make any sense, Rei being trapped in the Eva 01 has no reason at all (and you will see why) everything in these movie is stupid or contradict each other or straight contrived.
3.0 is actually unnecessary nothing really happens you just get what you need to know in the first 12 minutes of the movie and everything thereafter is absolutely nothing because nothing really happens.. Shitty movie.
And 3.0+1.0 is just... Weird.
Is it worth the wait? Absolutely NO.
There's nothing in the movie that required time or effort (not even the animation) and sure as hell that ending wasn't earned even less knowing what really means.
