I've just watched the first 5 episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion (via Netflix DVD) and enjoyed it.

I was wondering if I should continue watching the original series, or just watch the Rebuild films.

Nah, stay with the original series. You cant go wrong. The endings going to be a little confusing, so after that watch the End of Evangelion movie. Much better.

Watch both but I would go for the original version first before the movies.
The movies are slightly edited from the original and so some of the feel may be different.
I'm not sure about the second movie though but I can tell you the first movie does have a different feel from the T.V episodes

I really could never understand why people found the TV ending to be confusing...

To me, it was out of context with the rest of the series. Every episode was a giant, city wide battle with an angel. But the last episode looked like some kind of psychedelic intervention to help Shinji discover himself. It seemed out of place and not what I was expecting.

Being A HUGE Eva Fan maybe one of the biggest on here. (hehe) Watch the whole series first. You will appreciate it more if you do, The second Half of the series is when it starts to get deeper, I have no problam with the rebuild i thought it looked amazing and the rewrite was very well done. But in order for it to feel complete watch the full series.

lol There wasn't a city wide battle every episode, there are only 15 Angels (16 if you count lilim in the end of evangelion which is said by Misato to be man kind itself.) And some of those angels are not fought in a city battle.

Thanks, my main interest in the series was how deep it was supposed to be, so now I know where to look forward too.

Watch all of the episode except for the last 2, then watch End of Evangelion
