Some spoilers ahead
So I just watched the rebuild of the series. All 3.
1. Fucking brilliant rebuild. I do miss some of the aspects of the original series BUT I feel this one is equally as great.
2. Loved the new 3D CG. Normally I’m not a big fan of it being used, but they did it in a good, not so in your face kind of way.
3. GOOD GOD KAWORU T____T THE FEEEEEELS!!!
Uhg. Like. I’ve always been a ShinjixKaworu shipper, like even way back in the day. This doesn’t have so much blatant undertones (is that an oxymoron I spot?) as the original series does BUT… holy fucking shit it makes up for it in many more subtleties. You can honestly feel the love Kaworu has and how truly legitimate it is. He was created for this one specific task. His destiny lies with Shinji. Yes, he loves him. I hated in the original he had such a little role and I hated in this one he had even less, and yet it ripped my heart out and shattered it to pieces even more somehow ;-;
Now I anxiously await the Final part. Le siiiigh u_u
