Nick - So far, theres still angst, but with the introduction of a more aggressive character who will pilot the black eva she could reduce the angst a fair bit. Still, shinji is still shinji and asuka still has issues with her mother. But, in the first 30mins i'd say its about 60/40 to action!
Its a mixture Playdo - I'd hazzard a guess and say most of the time the Evas/vehicles/background people/somebuildings are done in 3d while the static backdrops/fluids/rubble/explosions are all 2d.
I doubt the ending for these 4 films will be anymore conclusive as theyve actually introduced more elements than the first time through and hell, they have less time to rap it up. I thought the End of Evangelion made a fair bit of sense on the surface, in that it was the removal of the ego and turning them all into LCL, but fuck speculating more looking at pretty things.
I'm with you on that tea, i really enjoyed the angst in the series and the mood it sets - the episode when Shinji goes camping and spends ages on the train going back and forth was nicely done, the mood etc in the fields with all the mist while his friend plays with toy guns. And when his friends see how much he struggles while piloting an Eva and begin to understand why he does it begrudgingly - to the extent the dude with the kansai dialect wants to be hit to set the record straight. I could do this for ages D:
