Announcing The Next Episodic Review Series...

Now that I've finished Vividred Operation, I've sort of been at loose ends as far as what show I wanted to do next.  Waiting until next season didn't really appeal to me, and currently airing series are so hit-and-miss anyway.  Case in point: Vividred Operation.  If I hadn't've been doing writeups for it, I would have let it go long before. the end.  But something longtime reader Avatar said in a comment for the last episode writeup made me raise an eyebrow (metaphorically... I can't actually do that without duct tape or staples) and stroke my chin pensively.  Then I realized that over in Japan, a particular movie was being released soon, and my course became clear.  The next series I will be doing Episodic Reviews for is...

Evangelion.  Really, it's an obvious choice... a decent show that's more screwed up and broken and just begging for my gentle touch would probably be impossible to find.  "But Wonderduck," I hear you say, which as usual I respond with "How did you get in here?"  "But Wonderduck, what about the 'no 26 episode series' rule?"   Simple... I'm going to do the movie version.  The third film just came out on BD in Japan.  If I break each film into three "episodes", that's nine writeups; I can also make do six, with two per movie if I feel like it.  Depends on the flow of each one, I guess.  I suspect fewer of my readers have seen the movies than the series anyway.

This is gonna be epic.  So whaddya think?

2 Movies 1.1 and 2.2 are actually pretty darn good, and make some effort to reduce and/or mitigate some of what made the TV series such a rich target for your attentions.  But my understanding is that 3.3 more than makes up for it.  You might end up doing 2/2/(n) write-ups, with n being a large number.

3 Oh, yeah.  Very much like.

4 It soundeth like unto a plan.

And yes, Evangelion is one of those shows which is really calling your name. I look forward to it.

5 By the time I got to the end of the series, I thought they were selling perfume.

6 I understand that the story isn't over, and that there's supposed to be a fourth movie. Aren't you being premature?

7 Since the movies have been coming out roughly every three years, I'm not really interested in waiting for the last one.  Who knows if The Pond will still be open for business then?

8 Speaking of not being over, are you planning on covering Death and Rebirth, Death(true), Death(true)2, and End of Evangelion?

9 No, just Rebuild of Evangelion
