    Toonami concludes its 2014 Month of Movies with a double feature presentation of the first two Rebuild of Evangelion movies! This four-part film series is an updated remake of the classic anime TV series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, which aired for 2 episodes on Toonami back in 2003, then later in full on Adult Swim in 2005.

    At the age of 14, Shinji Ikari is summoned by his father to the city of Neo Tokyo-3 after several years of separation. There, he unwillingly accepts the task of becoming the pilot of a giant robot by the name EVA01 and protecting the world from enigmatic invaders known as "angels."

    The first of these four films, You Are (Not) Alone, retells the first six episodes of the original series. The second film, You Can (Not) Advance (as well as the remaining films, which Toonami hasn't aired yet), will diverge as a sort of "reconstruction" of the series. Enjoy the retelling of Hideaki Anno's groundbreaking and influential saga tonight at midnight. Only Toonami.

    No Eureka again, due to this. I hope they remember where they left off....

    I hope the next movie they're planning to air is Akira (either version). I'll be looking forward to this!

    Neo-Toonami shows its first movie event on the same weekend I'm visiting my niece in Colorado. And the soonest I'll probably get to watch it is Monday.

    Oh well, no Soul Eater or Eureka Seven to miss...

    Lucky I saw this a couple of years ago at a local Japanese culture festival.


    Normal service will resume next Saturday.

    Ah, yes, I remember SFDebris reviewed this movie... totally blind, without any context whatsoever. The reactions were entertaining :D


    Toonami starting up, and Tom just announced they're showing the movie.

    Sounds like somebody watched Sage's Macross Plus review.

    Anyway, I've only seen bits and pieces of this movie, so this'll be the first time I actually sit down and watch the whole thing. And of course, poke fun and lampoon it as I see fit.

    It begins!

    Ah yes, the ambient chirping of cicadas. A pivotal staple of Evangeion.

    Toonami was born the day after my birthday. Let's see what Eva's all about.

    Hmm, they certainly do like their cigarettes down at NERV.

    The Tree of Life and the Tree of Wisdom. The first of many Christian symbologies that will never be explicitly explained or explored (hmm, alliteration).

    That's essentially what I'm doing. All I've heard is that it doesn't make sense even if you have seen it all. But shoooooooot, these are some nice animations...I'll see how long I want to stick around.

    Gotta agree with Shinji here. Why the hell would you just expect a teenager to pilot a giant robot right on the spot? Shouldn't he have had.....trai....ning?

    "Don't worry Shinji. Just use the quick guide of the instruction manual for the giant robot and you'll be fine. Remember, the fate of humanity is riding on you. kthxbye."

    LCL seems to be like a legalized drug in Eva.
