I agree they got some MASSIVE shoes to fill.

I'm completely against Eva being shown on CN, it's going to be hacked to bits.

As for the voice actors, worry not, it's been dubbed already and the VA's suck.
Carnal Malefactor
Whatever happened to ADV not selling the airing rights to any of their shows to CN?

Anyway, this is 10 years too late to make any difference. But it'll be funny to see the InuYasha crowd hate on the show because it goes right over their heads.
Envy's lil' miniskirt
This rumor has been going around for a while and still no sign of Eva on CN. More than likely it's just a rumor. They would have alot to cut out of it to make it airable.

Well, as a Evangelion manga reader, (and I'm about to watch the movie soon), and yet as a pro-dub fan...I can only say that I trust Cartoon Network to do a fairly decent job sleep.gif I just don't wanna hear everyone bitch (excuse the language, but that's the best word for it) about Eva coming to AS for the next few months dry.gif

You have to scroll down in the news section. It's the 19th link down.

Oh! What now?! biggrin.gif
Carnal Malefactor
The dub's existed for a good 8 years now. Yes, it blows.
Blitz
I was waiting for someone to make a thread on Eva. I personally wanna see what they'll do episode 19. All the blood when Eva 01 has the dummy plug take over. o_O They'll cut it all out I bet.
As for Asuka's dub voice, I personally think that she sounds like a 40-year old woman. Misato's VA does a pretty good job.
All I can say is that hell has frozen over for Eva to be airing on CN/Adult Swim.
Celestial Shadow
dry.gif And the bitching commences...

I've never heard the dub, but maybe they're going to re-dub? Nah...Too much time and money involved there.

Yeah prolly.

The way I got my info wasn't from a website though. I was watching cartoon network sometime a couple of weeks ago and I saw them talking about the lineup changes, and then I was all like KILL CN DIEDIEDIE YOU DIE! So yeah, I heard it from tv...

Well, they showed SUPER MILK CHAN recently. And they've shown episodes of Evangelion on Cartoon Network before.

People complaining about this, SHUT THE HELL UP.

The show is not going to butchered. If you guys actually watched Adult Swim or KNEW anything about it at all, you'd know there edits to the show are little IF ANY. They don't horrendously cut up or re-edit them like networks did in the old days.

As for the dubbing, it was one of the first titles ADV dubbed into English around 10 years ago. Recently they've redone some of it with the Platinum edition. And guess what? The dub is pretty good. So once again, SHUT UP.

You don't have to watch it on Adult Swim if it pisses you off so much. You are elitist otaku nazis. Do you realize that this will finally give Evangelion the exposure and recognition it rightfully deserves? Not to mention accessibility to more Americans. WHY is this a bad thing?

I've yet to see a legitimate reason why this is bad other than lame-o otaku elitism.

As far as I'm concerned, AS lost all credibility the moment it decided to air InuYasha. Because of that show, the demographic for the block skewed drastically away from 18-24 [what it SHOULD be] to 12-17. Now the people who watch the block consist primarily of kids who are too young and simple-minded to appreciate NGE.

Of course, since the anime is already 10 years old, there isn't much left to discuss about it, but anyone who's been on this forum since before FMA joined the AS lineup should know what the introduction of a more serious, adult-themed anime to the block does to the level of the discourse related to the anime.

In short, InuYasha fans are the source of all the world's ills.

rolleyes.gif . Good grief. Oh please. I'm not an Inuyasha fan, but I can still see that Adult Swim has shown a LOT worse than Inuyasha. Worse being Reign The Conqueror and Case Closed. Currently crap like Squidbillies and Perfect Hair Forever. And Adult Swim still rocks either way. They've done so much good for animation and anime in general to say they've lost credibility is idiotic and quite frankly...retarded.

I think there are people on these forums that are a lot worse than Inuyasha fans. People COMPLAINING about Evangelion being on Adult Swim for instance. Along with the endless amount of otaku elitists who can't accept great anime being broadcast in the US because it ruins their cool little cult mentality they have with it.

Give it the exposure it deserves? Evangelion is already quite possibly the most popular anime in the US. It's already grotesquely overblown.

There's not really anything that can be done about exposing anime to hoards of rabid underaged fan-people who only appreciate it for shallow reasons. It happens in all types of fandoms. That still won't stop people from being upset or confused about it.

For one thing, Reign and Case Closed both appeared on the block AFTER InuYasha. For another thing, Reign is a much more 'adult' show than IY could ever pretend to be, whether or not you liked it [I didn't]. As for CC, the idea is the same as with IY... It's a show intended for middle schoolers in Japan, but because American kids supposedly can't stand the sight of blood, they stuck it on the ADULT Swim block, where it most definitely did not belong. Luckily, CC never took off the way IY did.

And bringing Squidbillies and PHF into the argument is bogus, since they're part of AS's COMEDY lineup. Those shows cater to an entirely different audience. I was referring exclusively to the anime lineup.

And to say that AS has done 'so much good for anime and animation in general' without giving it a second thought is pretty foolish. It's like saying that the advent of corporate record labels has done so much for music. It hasn't. All it does is package and market. It takes no part in the creative process, other than making occasional edits to conform to FCC guidelines. A show as revered as NGE definitely doesn't need AS to popularize it. All it'll do is expose it to an audience the majority of which won't be able to wrap their heads around it.

Evangelion the entire series is going to air on basic cable for the first time ever. I'd say that's pretty significant. And I'm happy its happening.

I've seen plenty of shallow people on these forums for fan-subbed anime.

And just because young people like a show doesn't make them shallow either.

Either way, Reign was still garbage and a waste of time. But Adult Swim has done a lot more good than bad. They've done so much for legitimizing anime in the US and giving the respect it deserves its not even funny, but you are just too bent out of shape for stupid reasons about Inuyasha to see that.

I think co-producing the second season of Big O after it didn't take off in Japan was pretty significant.

Also a little FYI, the FCC does NOT give guidelines to or regulates Cartoon Network. Know why? Because its CABLE TV. Cable TV is a private service. The FCC only regulated public air waves, so don't bring that BS in here.

Your last statement is pretty symbolic of your elitism. A word of advice, don't make judgements and generalize an audience based off of a few idiots or bad typists on the Adult Swim forums.

You're missing the point entirely. It's not any elitism on my part. It's the fact that because of one poor decision by the honchos at Williams Street, the target demographic of the AS block has permanently been skewed towards an age group that CANNOT and SHOULD NOT watch a show like NGE because of its subject matter. Not because they're too dumb, but because they're simply too young to comprehend it.

Elitism. Not all young people are retards. They can still watch and enjoy Evangelion.

I talk to a lot of ADULTS that don't even understand Evangelion, so I don't buy into your logic at all.

Neon Genesis Evangelion, what the heck is going on!?!?!?

First off, this entire post will be a spoiler. Why? Because I have an issue with the ending of the series. Thus, if you have not watched the whole series, don't read this. you'll ruin it for yourself.

Okay, I just finished watching the Neon Genesis Evangelion series and I have one question:
WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!?!
I'm totally lost! Completely and totally at sea as to what just transpired! see this-> huh.gif that's me!!
Those last two episodes- Is this the Matrix? Shinji changed the world with his mind?
Instrumentality made a hive mentality of everyone in the world and they were just waiting for Shinji to accept himself?
Is everyone dead? We saw Misato and Ritzuko shot so are they really dead or did Shinji bring them back to life with his mental powers?
i mean, my head hurts from trying to wrap my mind around waht the hell did or did not happen in episodes 25 and 26.
was the whole thing inside Shinji's head and completely inconsequential to everyone else?
Did his mind break from killing Kaworu (and where that gay-love-affair-acceptance-of-who-you-really-are theme came up out of nowhere, when Shinji was totally straight beforehand, is beyond me. I have no problem with being gay but it wasn't part of his personality before ep.24! Was kaworu a Incubus Angel? I mean really... dry.gif )
What happened in Nerv? What happened to the rest of the world? What happened to Shinji/Rei/Asuka?
WHAT IS GOING ON!??!?!
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!
I hate this! I loved the series. there were so many intelligent nuances, such great subtleties to be noticed but this ending was just non-sensical.
::sigh::
the people who wrote this got into some serious mind-altering substances between episodes 24 and 25/26. Seriously...

That same question has been buzzing in my head for about 1 1/2 years already.

Why did everyone turn into orange goo?
Why was the earth turned into a barren wasteland?

i know! manga is always better! The NGE manga is a great example of this. Toji dying in the manga was fantastic! In this one, he barely gets scratched.
as osuka would say, 'this is pathetic.'

it's not fair!! I invested time, enegry and emotions into this anime! I want a resolution!

BTB, go onto the wikipedia n.g.e section. it's hysterical adn so freakin' detailed.
according to that thing, my facetious assumption about the hive mentality thing was right. all i can say is: that is beyond freakin' stupid.

no it freakin' wasn' "cool"!!! Fine, it tied up alot more strings then the original series ending but Shinji morphing into road kill in Canada would have made more sense then the original ending!!
this movie was weird.
i don't need everything explained to me but when the entire movie and series ending is almost entirely based on obscure theology, some character should have explained it better! Like Fuyutski to the officers or Misato to Shinji or even a flashback of the original making of the plans. Does Anno Hideki honestly expect people to believe that Shinji or Asuka-who are 14!!- understand this stuff??
No one understands this rambling and unknown information!
Lillith and primordial soup and reversion to the embyronic, one celled organisims and this tree of life- what is all this?
I really liked this series but for gods sake, the director and creator thinks that everyone who watches NGE is some theology/psychology major who on the weekends is in a religious cult!!!
I mean, the fact that Shinji and Asuka seem to now be the new Adam and Eve- hello!?!? he choked her!!
oh nad let's not forget that everyone dies as they see someone with whom they think they have unfinished business with! Thegirl in the control room and Ritzuko, Hugo and Misato, Gendo and everyone he wronged (the one great point in the movie. Gendo gets eaten by Shinji. revenge is sweet)

Anno Hideki puts the death threats people wrote to him after they saw the original ending into the movie. I suppose it's nice to see someone who used to be clinically depressed flipping off the entire world.
he needs valium and his series needs an explanation manuel.

Anno Hideki puts the death threats people wrote to him after they saw the original ending into the movie. I suppose it's nice to see someone who used to be clinically depressed flipping off the entire world.
he needs valium and his series needs an explanation manuel.

Whoa! Calm down! There's an explanation for everything in the movie. You just have to go through the details one-by-one.

Also, psychoactive drugs tend to help.
