This is very old news.
You are never going to satisfy die hard fans.
From what i have seen and read i'm not to pleased, but i still wouldnt mind watching it.
The Evangelions, look lanky.
They are changing the names of the characters.
They are supposedly only basing it around one Angel, and it was the worst one in the seres i believe. I cant remembers it name at the moment, so i'll get back later.
I do how ever believe that they may actually do a good job, considering i liked LOTR.
But you're going to have to wait a long time till this is released. i read somewhere 2010 o.o
