you're drawing the black/white conclusions
I'm annoyed at how FUNimation is handling Eva...actually, they do seem to be putting a lot of effort into it and *Eva 1.11 is one of the best anime releases ever known to mankind*...i just think it was really a mistake to release the bad Eva 1.01 (worse, to try to cover it up only acknowledged that they realized how bad it was)
as for "continued efforts"...now that the Christmas season has passed, I'm shifting to just praising how great Eva 1.11 is, and hopefully by next year, Eva 1.01 will be just a bad, faded memory...
conversely...you know much about the inner workings of the anime industry?
Given the collapse of the anime magazines or any "official" info sources, I'm in the same boat as everyone else: trying to figure it out on my own.

You noticed. Does that make you obsessive?
Also, being able to notice that one thing doesn't look exactly like
another thing is a fairly universal human ability. It's called
observation. Most functioning people have it.
Also, some episodes looking different from each other is due to there
being different animation directors They didn't all draw the characters
exactly the same, and apparently that wasn't a huge issue at the time. It
doesn't really have anything to do with budget.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

You know, life isn't all black and white. Eva was special to ADV because
it was their first major title, and it was a big deal. So if you think
they treated it with more "respect" than Funimation, I would argue that it
was out of necessity more than anything else.
Also, you're just a fan. Ultimately, you don't know anything about the
process involved in localizing Evangelion, so you're in no position to
tell anyone the "truth" of the matter.
Invent time travel, go back in time 13 years, get a job at ADV, work on
the English release of Eva, then time travel forward 10 years, work on the
release of Rebuild, then you can come back and tell us the truth of the
I for one am tired of your "Rebuild 1.01 is literally the worst DVD ever
made" bullshit. Your campaign to ReVolutionize the fandom isn't going to
go very far if you keep making these negative insinuations about everyone
with a vested interest in the show.
