    Which ending?

    Do you prefer the ending of the series or the movies as the ending??

    I think for me the ending of series did leave me with some confused but not that much because it showed that really the series was about Shinji's memories and how he saw certain events that took place.

    where as the Movie "end of Evangelion" was more confusing for me. Because i wasn't too sure where it went with the ending of the series. And with Death and Rebirth, that fully confused me. It was more about the philosophy about Eva then about the events. (i could have them confused, to which i am sorry).

    Although the movies do make interesting points it seemed to be made just to make people more happy or something.

    When 'Neon Genesis Evangelion' was first being broadcast on TV, some 'difference of opinion' developed between GAINAX Studios and the major corporate sponsor that was funding the broadcast of the series, to such an extent that the corporate sponsorship was cut halfway through the showing of the series. This created immediate cash flow problems for GAINAX Studios, which resulted in the quality issues of the late series episodes, as well as the infamous episodes 25 and 26...

    Incomplete Animatics used to time scenes were released for episode 25 as a part of the ADV Films 'Platinum' release for the series, with all of it's signficant scenes showing up in the 'End of Evangelion' movie. This is enough proof to show that the movies actually are the original intended ending for the series...

    Yes that's true. I don't know anyone who can come up with a real conclusion from the series ending. The End of Evangelion movie was the original ending to the series but was edited and cut to fit the time frame of a movie. Due to reasons LenMiyata mentioned. Death and Rebirth was the "lead in" to EoE. Once again editing to fit. Tiz a shame GAINAX Studios had to make all those changes.

    Just leave it those "big wig" corporate sponsors to mess up something that so many people world wide hold dear. It's unfortunate that money holds all the cards, so to speak. That's just the way the corporate world works. It sucks, but there's not much the fans can do about it.

    I much more prefer the movie ending. I felt like the move could slide right in between the last two episodes. The last two episodes left way too much out as far as the story goes.

    The last two episodes kindof confused me - although it was midnight when I was whatcheing it - and I never saw the "end of Evangelion" movie. So the only ending I really know is the "Death to Rebirth" ending, which was a good enougth ending for me.

    I would say the movie's ending is definitely more entertaining of not for its blood and gore althought the last 2 episodes are valuable in their own way since it showed the inner struggles of shinji.. But i still like EoE, at least for Asuka's fight =D

    yeah the last two episodes where about Shinji and how his memories have been portrayed and he can change what happens because of how he acts.

    Re: Which ending?

    I’d choose the movie ending than its series counterpart but I really thought that the series contained the original ending until now. I thought the movie ending was just an alternate ending for the series because most fans felt unsatisfied with the series ending.
