Again, you keep stressing this point but you're greatly exaggerating. Eva has a TV anime (and its movie conclusion), a manga adaptation, and now remake movies. There are lots of other mangas, but they are all complete AUs with different premises. So no, there are no 'constant' retellings.
Well, to be fair, there was also Death and Rebirth, and then there was the edited-for-TV version called Death(true). And then there was Revival of Evangelion, which edited Death again
and combined it with the End of Evangelion. All of them released within one year. Not to mention the Director's Cut of several episodes.
But hey, guys, why all the negativity in this topic? Can't we all just love one another and save the hating for MD Geist?
(I do want to point out that I actually liked
Shadow Chronicles. Then again, I've only seen a couple of episodes of the original Robotech show, so maybe that's why.)
I am gone for a day and this all happens. Wow.
First James Cameron, what he did in terms of film technology, was good; but that is it, most people don't really know how to use the technology other than "Lets just make things look nice". Movies these fall into four types: Normal Movies, "3D" Movies, THX Movies, and "3D" THX Movie, the last three are gimmicks for Hollywood to charge you more money to watch one movie.
Ok, now lets all be cool here; this has been talked about both on the net and off, Eva is good and people like it and some don't, Neo just likes it less than when he first saw it, Am I right Neo? What we say here will not change what the fans at large will think of Eva or Gundam, the shows are what they are, animes that people like.
Look we can all agree that everyone has their things that they like, let things be.
Destiny Gundam, Eva has been just like gundam in term of it's "toys", Eva says buy out our figures and dvds, so it really not that much different from gundam or any other anime.
