Death and Rebirth is an Evangelion movie. After the 25th and 26th episodes of the Japanese Television animeNeon Genesis Evangelion were released the fans revolted. Studio Gainix had run out of money and the final two episodes of the series were released with poor animation, contained a false "happy go lucky" ending and were overall very confusing. The fans through a shit fit and sent death threats. When Studio Gainix pulled some money together, and got a bit of a hand out from every animation studio in Japan, they produced two Evangelion movies. The first of which was Death and Rebirth. The first half: Death, was a broad recap of the first 24 episodes. Rebirth however was no more than the first 15 minutes of the next movie. The fans once again threw a shit fit and sent death threats. Finally The End of Eva was released, "and all's right with the world."
Allright, for the marathon were gonna do episodes 1 through 24, fuck 25 and 26, fuck death and rebirth, and then we watch the end of eva.
