“Several years has passed since the previous installment and I simply could not remember where the story has stopped. Therefore, I decided to revise the whole thing starting from 1995u0026#39;s original. It took me about 18 hours and I must say it was a good time as always. It took me back more than 20 years, when I watched it for the first time. I was overwhelmed by it. It made me think of my life from a different perspective and I even made some changes as I thought for the best.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNow, two decades later, I can see that most of my dreams did not come true and I am still a little boy trying to find my place among other people, find myself. While watching Eva today, I have remembered my friends from school and university, teachers, family members long gone, colleagues from my very first job – and how they all were really nice to me, though I didnu0026#39;t noticed it at that time. After all those years, Evangelion still resonates in my heart, even more than it was at the first time.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor me 21st century Evangelion movies were something that kept me going through my life. Every time things went from bad to worse I thought that I need to live long enough to see that upcoming Evangelion move. And now, the project that occupied Hideakiu0026#39;s mind for more than 20 years is released. So was it a good movie? Well in a matter of fact – yes. I wasnu0026#39;t expecting any revelations or mind-blowing philosophy, I just wanted to see it all again, and a new movie is quite a good excuse to watch it all from the very beginning. It was pleasant to see old friends, memorable locations, to experience emotions that I felt 20 years ago. I do not care about the plot, action, or CGI – I am just happy seeing Rei smiling again. All the things that I really care are present here. It is a nostalgic movie – it makes you try to remember, try to go back in time to see if you have missed something, not only in the movie but in your life itself. Itu0026#39;s also a sad farewell movie, an end of the line, the real end of Evangelion, because there will be nothing more. Evangelion time has passed, now we live in a world without Evas.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI have watched Evangelion when I was just a young student. This is maybe my third time returning to it in more than 20 years. Will I watch Evangelion again? I would love to… Maybe in 10, maybe in another 20 years. But will I live for that long? I am not sure… Most likely, it is a u0026quot;Goodbye Evangelionu0026quot; forever. Sayonara old friend. I wish I could see you again for a last time, before I go.”
