But that'd be re-writing characters. She's a lesbian dammit!

Oh! maybe they'll show that it was Maya who reprogrammed one of the Magi to go against self destruction, as a way to pay Ritsuko back for not returning her love.

There is a new article (it's not from the newtype magazine) with an interview to Producer Otsuki regarding the New Project in which states that it will be "the true completion compilation" of evangelion. He assures that, as we all know, the 4th movie will have new material and it's end will not have an open-ended final like End of Evangelion did. It's assumed that the new end will be easily understood and that it will truly be the end of evangelion.
I attach the link so that anyone can make a better translation of this article.

that sounds like a relief. Wow and I thought that EoE was def the end......hmmm......oh well. Let's see how they do it this time. so Im guessing like the original TV 25 and 26, EoE wont exist right?


I vote for them to show a 20 min clip of what happens after "kimouchi warui"(i'll leave the Japanese out there for obvious reasons). I would trade in 4 movies, hell even 10,000 thousand movies(CGs and all) to see a conclusion made off that.

But you already have that--its called EoE :)

This is how I look at it--those who feel that a more clear-cut wrap-up isn't there cup of tea don't have to watch it (or, more to the point, watch it over and over again as we do with EoE)--they can stick to the original cut, so to speak. Others can jump on the rebuild train and ride it all the way to clarityville. Believe me, we will still be arguing about Eva regardless of how clear the new movies are. So stop worrying and learn to love the rebuild...

But unless it's really bad I probably will watch it over again because its evangelion.

And I thought that the movie released in 1997 was the REAL End of Evangelion as the title suggested. Considering that, if this new end sucks, ten years after the four movies are released GAINAX will produce End of Evangelion (True)²: The Real Real End of Evangelion. :lol:

Who knows, maybe the "new" ending will overlap with EoE just like Episode 26, or it will continue where EoE left off, but I highly doubt the latter.

They wont change character backrounds, thats impossible, Characters play the most crusual role in the series, and those characters are awesome cause of their grimm backround. Expect backround re-drawing...and not only background but music, some re-designs of the characters to meet the 3DCG implant, new characters, new locations...all that stuff.

For a sorely overused fangeek observation -- ever heard of the video game series "Final Fantasy"?

Considering that, if this new end sucks, ten years after the four movies are released GAINAX will produce End of Evangelion (True)²: The Real Real End of Evangelion. :lol:

And in the meantime, Rebuild 1 through 4 -- which include THE END (True) -- will be rereleased with minor edits every two years because Anno or whomever wants to bring them "closer to his true vision". Eventually, the Rebuilds will be expanded to cover any turf in the original as yet untouched. At this point, Anno will say that the Rebuild^2 version is the True Evangelion -- created during a time of mental stability and regular sex, with a substantial budget, and state-of-the-art technology -- and the original series will be disowned and discontinued.

A prequel will eventually be produced, as well. One of the new characters will be a super-intelligent talking penguin named Gin-Gin Sukubin, bio-engineered for a project aimed at producing researchers relatively undeterred by harsh, wintry climes. Although he is capable of speaking, it is in a sometimes unintelligible pidgin Japanese. He serves as Dr. Katsuragi's right-hand man in Antarctica, although his tendency for extraordinarily unhilarious physical comedy is, as we'll see, what leads to the Contact Experiment getting totally botched.

Sorry if doublepost. I'm checking the article posted before (gracias! WES512), and will put the thing I consider relevant here for a better translation or discussion:

「テレビ版のようにメタフィクション的な終わり方でけむに巻いたり、劇場版のように世界が終末を迎えるような不条理なラストにしたりはしない。エンターテインメント志向で、企画当初の構想に近いラスト。ずっとやりたかったが、監督がようやくその気になってくれた」と大月さん。



Ooohhh.

"Not like metafiction of the TV series ending nor the end-of-the-world absurdity of the movie. This time we planned for a more entertainment aimed plot." Something like they always wanted to do that, and the director (Anno I suppose) gradually changed his mind and decided to do this.

?? Not sure.

「映像の迫力はかなり増す」と大月さん。例えば、日本中の電力を使って使徒に一撃を加える場面は、新たに「日本沈没」の樋口真嗣監督が絵コンテを担当。「CGも使い、日本全体が停電していく様が、かなりのスペクタクルシーンになるはず」


They'll change Ramiel's scene?

Does this mean they're going to change evangelion into simplistic anime about giant robots?

I think they'll do the "Renewal" to the Japan using all it's energy to destroy Ramiel thing. If I understood right, under the supervision of Higuchi Makoto (a quick ANN search returns a guy who did 3D backgrounds for some Kingdom of Chaos OVA).
