I do not hate Evangelion, in fact, I considered it an enjoyable series myself. However, that does not take away that I can see why many others wouldn't enjoy it; what was then considered innovative also reeks of bad execution.

All in all, the series does a deliberately bad job at explaining itself, moving quite slowly before going into a deranged mind [tornado fang] scenario, whilst covering itself in needless Christianity references and all the way having an angst filled main character who deliberately inverts everything that normally makes a main character. Yes, the very things that make Evangelion famous are exactly the same things that makes it infamous.

ZX carries many of the same concepts, but carries its execution in such a manner that vague foreshadowing, symbolism and mind [tornado fang] do not needlessly detract your attention from the facts, which all in all makes it a more easier to understand despite being similar.

Evangelion is just an acquired taste, is all. Some like it, some don't. Just the way it is.

Congratulations.
Congratulations.
Congratulations.

I don't see the similarity, personally. I also refuse to believe there is a connection due to the suckiness that is Eva for all the reasons Zan listed. I like a main character with complications, a conscience, and regret but Shinji is just a chickenshit. Sad that I watched it from start to finish. >_>

ZX3? A sequel? Then it wouldnt be 3, would it?

I'd imagine they'd add on another letter for the title...

Is it offical from Inafuneīs mouth that the next ZX title will be a prequel?
If that is true we can call the next ZX title Rockman ZX Genesis.

Yes, just because of that reason that the characters are mental handicaped makes the story so much more interresting. The weaker they are, the more human they will be.
If you canīt sympathise with Shinji, you donīt even know how it is to be alone or to be hurted mentally. Yes, Shinji is coward, but he has also shown courage. He didnīt pilot EVA 01 because of his father, but for Rei.
The story with all these Jewelish and Christianity elements doubles the fun and mindfuck (delicious), especially the presentation was so fantastic I cried.
I have been hurt both physically AND mentally many times, and I know how it is to be alone.

Yet, I cannot symphatize with him because he's a shitty character. Just like the rest of them.
The only one I liked was Gendo and that's because he's [tornado fang]ing bad ass. I was even thinking about reading the Evangelion manga when I saw him put up a force field out of nowhere.

I'll say the same thing Zan said. This show was good, once upon a time... but now it's a [tornado fang]ing laughable piece of DEEP crap.

--------------------

Anyway. I think we can agree that ZX does NOT get plot ideas from Evangelion... and EVEN IF that's true, it does everything better... even tough it's a game for kiddies.

Thread over?
