Pacific Rim, You've Met Your Match

Pacific Rim, You've Met Your Match

The Evangelion movies always look terrific. They have always been, at the very least, visually interesting. But the CG in this latest Evangelion short is something else.

The computer graphics are damn good -- like Pacific Rim good. And that movie looks fantastic. Can't wait to see if this animated short is spun off into a feature film. A beautiful one, at that.

    That's right load the article with gifs of all the best parts and the video link last, cmon

      This so much. I loaded the page and pressed play and then had to keep scrolling down as the gifs kept pushing down the video window. Loathsome.

    Five and a half minute medium quality video: 23.5 MB
    Nine GIFs of about twenty seconds of same video: 33 MB

      You forgot the part where the nine gifs are a mandatory 33MB while the video is optional. This is why I keep pushing time and time again for there to be a "Play gif" option but I've given up after several years of trying.

    Looks okay. Prefer the animated version though. For some reason the sound / music seems much better in the anime version also.

      The music for the anime was properly scored and flows the the action on scene. Here they have taken music clips and looped sections. Combined with the slower movement, the music doesn't pack the whammy it did in the anime.

    The weird fish-like face almost ruined it for me. Why would you mess with the classic design??

    Okay, going to clarify this since the article didn't bother.

    The Video isn't official, it's a project done for an animators expo in japan and It was produced by professionals who aren't associated with commercial Evangelion productions.
    That said, it has some big names who worked on it, like some of the people behind films like Appleseed ect.

    As for changes to design ect, the "plot" of the video is that it's an activation test for a "numberless" Eva-unit in an alternate reality, hence the difference in Eva design and the totally bombed out world at the end. Sound design ect are remastered from the original anime with music and such borrowed from the Evangelion 2.0 film.

    Eva going berserk for no apparent reason bothered me a bit there. It was good to see some animation but that was it.


      I don't know - in the original Anime Yui only moved to protect Shinji - but there is no reason she wouldn't have gone mental having been merged with an Eva.

    Don't care about the changes people are complaining about, it's test a fan made piece that changed enough to not get hit with the copywrite monster. This looked awesome! Image what they could do with this level of footage and either a streamlined script (like the Eva reboots we're still getting... Hurry up 3.3 in English) or a wholely original script.

    Pro Tip. No one likes gifs. We just scroll straight to the video...
