Just watched Evangelion 1.0
I just watched Eva in LA! It was awesome that I could see it on a big screen!!
Actually, I expected the movie was dubbed, but it was with English subtitle.
It was a good surprise for me cuz I love Eva's original voice cast :)
I don't know if it's gonna be dubbed or subtitled in other cities, though.
Also, the movie was followed by the trailer of the next one like the TV series!
You know what? I saw the new character in there! It must be Mari!!
You shouldn't miss the trailer! OMG! I can't wait to see the 2nd one!
I may go to theater again to check the trailer. Current Mood: excited
