Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance Spoilers

Yup. Spoilers. This list won’t be comprehensive or in order, I’m just going by whatever pops up in my mind first. Please keep in mind that my Japanese comprehension isn’t the best, so I may get some things wrong.

The first scene is Eva Unit 5 exploding in the US. There’s lot of English that’s mostly well acted by actual English speakers. Yamadera Koichi had some English as Kaji, but I had no idea what he was saying. In this scene Mari fights with Eva Unit 5 against what I assume is an Angel. Unit 5 explodes.

Mari and Kaworu don’t really do much. Mari is like some secret agent for the US NERV branch it seems.

Asuka is the test pilot for Unit 3 this time around. She has a daring test plug suit that shows off her butt. Unit 3 turns into an Angel, as usual. Shinji destroys it, Asuka dies. But… she doesn’t? In the preview for the next movie she’s shown right at the end with an eye patch.

Rei has some personality in this! She smiles, and even tries to make food for Shinji. It’s moe!

The ending scene is taken from the episode where the Eva goes really berserk and starts eating things. However, instead of going berserk, it goes super saya-jin, saves Rei from the inside of the Angel (the Angel ate most of Rei’s Eva, by the way) and theres lots of pretty lights. Cut to credits.

After the credits, Kaworu descends from the moon in his Eva, throws a spear at Unit 1, impaling it, and says something that I forget.

The side characters are really shafted in this movie version. Toji and Kensuke don’t do much, really, and Hikari isn’t really present at all. You do get to see Toji’s sister, though!

That’s about all the important stuff. I’m sure there’s better lists out there by now.

edit: Oh, and they cut out out the shadow Angel. I guess it wouldn’t really work in the context of this film.

    Amazing. Fucking finally. now, they can’t just go ahead and call her a stupid frigid girl.

    >Asuka is the test pilot for Unit 3 this time around. She has a daring test plug suit that shows off her butt.

    Good. Very good.

    >Unit 3 turns into an Angel, as usual. Shinji destroys it, Asuka dies.

    Bad. Asuka dying like that is bad.

    >She’s shown right at the end with an eye patch.

    Eyepatch Asuka just makes it her more awesome.

    I thank you for the information. and i still envy your position.

    has anyone noticed the clear hints that the rebuild occurs after the End of Evangelion? –

    the opening scene of movie 1 is the red tide on the white beach, shown in the final scene of EoE.
    the moon has a red stain/streak on it, also shown in the final scene of EoE.
    and now asuka wearing the eye patch, as seen in the final scene of EoE (associated with the one rei had in the original show).

    any ideas?

    HEY when is coming to north America I hope soon?

    The English dub of Eva 1.0 has *just* premiered at AX. Surprisingly good. However, licensee Funimation is only giving this a half-hearted “art house” theatrical release this summer. I suspect there will be DVDs and Blu-Rays out just in time for Xmas. So keep waiting for 2.0, because the US licensee has its hands full with 1.0

    sorry wiwi, but Kaworu says “the time has come”. i think. haha. my japanese is terrible

  11. makki says:

    no
    kaoru says
    “The time has come. Now only you will be made happy, Ikari Shinji”

    Thanks for like the worst review ever. You managed to miss everything important while still ruining some of the film’s best moments.

    “After the credits, Kaworu descends from the moon in his Eva, throws a spear at Unit 1, impaling it, and says something that I forget.”

    Jesus. I hope you aren’t being paid for this.

  13. wah says:

    That’s why it’s called “spoilers” you faggot. I did a real review right before this. Is English your second language? You clearly can’t read. Why would I be paid for something on my personal blog anyways?

    Also this post is months old.

    Let’s please consider my comments further ‘mistakes of youth.’ Internet rudeness creeps up on some of us almost imperceptibly. I go now.
