    React to the rebuilds they’re way different than the original. I mean starting from the 2nd movie it’s different but by then it’s not Eva anymore

    Combining everyone, turning them into something and nothing at the same time, yeah…
    This is everyone’s mind. They were meld together. Becoming one, understanding one another. It sucks and it also good. This is the truth for the truth does not have an unchanging form. Reality, fantasy, dreams…a perfect place. Not life or death. Everything you want, everything you need. It is all here, which is why I can’t call it life. For life brings forth pain, suffering and more of the things that an individual does not want.
    If you wanna see what happens to them afterwards, go read the manga.
    EoE is not an alternate ending in my point of view.

    When you see End of Evangelion, you’ll see what the Human Instrumentality Project is about. I look forward to your reaction since End of Evangelion will have all kinds of craziness the series didn’t really have.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion answers! [NO End Of Evangelion spoilers!!]
    The Human instrumentality project is:

    Remember how Kaworu said everyone has an AT field? The light of the soul that is a boundary between each Human. The Human instrumentality project’s goal is to remove that unpassable boundary. Instead of 8 billion individuals, there would be a single entity, the collective consciousness of Humanity. That’s SEELE’s goal but Gendo has hijacked it for his own goals. SEELE does not like this.

    I feel like End of Eva isn’t so much an alternate ending as it is the final two episodes in relation to what what actually happening in the physical outside world. The shows episodes deal more with what was happening in each of the character’s heads as the movie was happening.

    Episodes 25 and 26 will make sense if you put them in the middle of the part where Shinji makes an introspection in the movie "The End of Evangelion". 😉

    The fight for oneself is the greatest fight there is. Trying to understand oneself is the greatest science, and also the source of true magic. It is also the beginning of empathy, and of any moral feeling worth having.

    People tend to hate this episode. If I’m not mistaken, Anno even got death threats because of that. And yet… this shows Shinji going through instrumentality (imagine everybody else going through something similar, as the human race integrates into one single consciousness). And at the end, what do we have? Shinji decides to remain a separate being. An individual, who can exist by himself, and perhaps someday even love himself.

    If you’re curious about what was happening while Shinji let himself become trapped into Instrumentality… Watch the movie, End of Evangelion.

    Can I just appreciate how many times you said "what in the hell?" Or "what in the fuck is happening?" You arent the only one that said it as they watched this last 2 eps for the first time, but god it’s funny when your own responses are projected onto everyone else’s.

    Congratulations! Now when you watch End of Eva think of it as sort of a remake of these last two episodes because it takes place over the same time period it’s just a much more fleshed out version of them and it actually has a finale that you can make more sense of

    "Was the whole project meant to just let Shinji realize himself?…" No 🙂 There are other reasons (Seele had theirs, Gendō had his…). But no. It’s just that, because of reasons made clearer in the movie, Shinji’s experience is the most important one. His final conclusion — that it is worthwhile to exist as an individual — defines what will happen.

    They say this episode is "bad." I disagree. I think this ending was meant from the beginning (remember the final scene, when Shinji smiles and thanks everybody? If you pay attention, you’ll see that this scene is quickly shown in the Intro… since Episode 1). I don’t see the movie as an "alternative ending", I see it as complementary — 25 & 26 show Shinji’s Instrumentality experience, and the movie shows what was happening around him before, during and after his instrumentality experience. Also, the instrumentality scenes in the movie complement and expand on the ones in the series. That is, at least, how I see it.

    Imagine you are 14, it’s 1997 and the internet hasn’t been invented yet, and you’ve been watching the show on crappy VHS import cassette tapes and THIS IS HOW IT ENDS.
    Thank god they made End Of Evangelion to compliment 25+26!

    in my opinion you shouldn’t have to read a synopsis just to understand a show. that’s why they made the movies cause the ending sucked so bad

    go for "Zankyou no Terror", a quick 11 episode anime and its kind of interesting.

    The End Of Evangelion is *NOT* an "alternate" ending. It’s a *supplemental* ending the details the events of the instrumentality project in less abstract (well, mostly) and holistic form, not just focusing on Shinji and some other central characters. Episodes 25 and 26 of the original series occur amidst of End Of Evangelion and you will understand them better after seeing the film. In any case the film is the "actual" ending you are most likely looking for. Both are are still part of the whole ending though, and neither of them excludes one or the other.

    As far as what you said about interpretations, you’re pretty much correct. Hideaki Anno and other creators of the show have explicitly said that especially the more abstract parts of the story don’t have an inherent explicit meaning about them, but are supposed to be interpreted by the viewer in the way they see them. There are no straight answers, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on where you’re coming from).

    The reason the original series ended like this is largely because they ran into several unfortunate incidents and basically ran out of time to finish their original vision. The original series ending–which was supposed to be essentially a trimmed version of End Of Evangelion–had to be scrapped and instead they decided to explore Shinji’s experience of the Instrumentality Project to convey–funnily enough–in more concrete and humanistic terms the nature of experiencing it. It’s not what most people wanted to see, but it’s still valid and relevant, if a bit unrefined and confusing.

    "What the fuck is happening?" 🙂 Welcome to Evangelion!… In that particular example, since Shinji could be in any world (via instrumentality, and in his own mind), he selected a world in which he, Asuka, Rei, Misato, Gendō, Yui etc. are part of a normal highschool slice-of-life animē… Rei even appears running with toast in her mouth, one of the most famous animē clichēs… What makes this sequence heartbreaking is that this shows our heroes simply being normal teenagers, which the entire animē never gave them any chance to be. :-(…

    You don’t need to decide how long each section of the movie is going to be. The movie consists of 2 episodes with an intermission/credits inbetween. Just stop when the first episode ends.
