Honestly I'm not seeing what you're seeing. The plugsuits when deflated should just fall off the person instead of having to wiggle out of it and his posture is just way too relaxed.These thumbs are small so let's wait until we have a better look.

Agreed, let's wait to have bigger picture to see if it's the Mark.06 or EVA-13 plugsuit, and we'll get our answer.

Must have bigger images.....sooon......Mustt!!! :derp:
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Holy shit, some of these look really artsy. Please, please, big versions ASAP!
Big versions will exist WHEN?

We already knew the KS pic, but Shinji in the landscape, the mark nine, the rails pic, casual clothing for Sakura...
She just seems to be in an AU scenario here, there's no reason to assume anything, especially anything with grass in it, is in-universe, except obvioulsly "Asuka landing".

Some photos are leaking and people in the internet have pointed out the cat in the calendar is the same one as from the EoE live action footage

Luckily no cats have been harmed at any time in this continuity, especially with likes of Neko Nigouki around.

@ TMB : So, the central pair of feet is confirmed to be Rei Q's, and the purple one on the right is Shinji. Still don't understand why the figure on the left(logically Asuka) has a red plugsuit on the feet.
Maybe artistic license so we're sure to recognize her?


Also, the image of Kaworu and his mysterious plugsuit has been leaked too :
Image

So, he's definitively taking it off, seeing the colors it looks like the Mark.06 one, and... is that a DSS Choker on his wrist?! :cringe:
Whoever wanted to keep a leash on his really had gone overboard!

Nah - that's just a stylish wristwatch.

The cats are not the same. The new one has a white leg and ear; the previous one has neither. Someone just likes tortoiseshells.

However, the picture shows the pilots by a railway crossing, which ties up with one of the storyboards in the Peaceful Times film.

I don't know, a black strap with a red at the middle which has a line separating it in two, looks at lot like a DSS for me(granted here it's a vertical line instead on the red square of the Choker's horizontal one)

Besides aren't the pilots supposed to take off all their clothes and accessories when wearing a plugsuit?

As for the cat, maybe it's just that someone at Kahara had a similar cat back during EoE and wanted to pay it an homage, or maybe they just like tortoiseshells cats! :D

I wouldn't trust the colors in the Kaworu illustrations for three reasons

1. Koyama Shigeto like to do kinda washed out colors:

2. Mahiro Maeda did not bother including the green shoulder stripes in his illustration either:

3. Most of the illustrations appear to prioritize art over canon.

Mmmmh, well now that you mention it, the blue hair and orange in his plusuit is rather odd(still Kaworu is clearly taking off the plugsuit and has some sort of DSS Choker like accessory in the wrist! No I won't give up! :tongue: )

View Original PostTMBounty_Hunter wrote:2. Mahiro Maeda did not bother including the green shoulder stripes in his illustration either:

Yeah, and there is also some sort of additional pectoral padding on their plugsuit.
On a side note, now that we have a bigger picture, this illustration is officially the creepiest of the calendar! :cringe:

View Original PostTMBounty_Hunter wrote:3. Most of the illustrations appear to prioritize art over canon.

Oh I'm well aware of that don't worry, it's just that some of them are so probable in canon(like EVA-02' getting ready for Operation US, then later crashed back on Earht with the Tesseract) that you start to wonder which image are part of the canon and which are only artistic.
And from here begin the wild speculation over the most minor detail! Such is the curse of Eva(geeks) we all suffer! :lol:

By the way, were did you found these zoomed illustrations.(I took mine from the picture thread)

The photos keep popping up on twitter. Apperently the calendar is already available in the physical stores.

Still trying to figure out if there is a reasonable route for me to acquire it or not :irked:

Going back on the illustration just above, the style remembered me something, and I found it : maybe it's me, but don't you think that this illustration has some air of Otto Dix's War Triptych?

Search the image on Google, warning it's extremely graphical!


EDIT : another wild leaked image appears, it's the big base thing I talked about earlier(third image, first row of the list TMB posted few days ago) :
[URL=http://minus.com/i/bz1vMtKkVWeOr]Image[/URL]

Okay... WHAT THE FUCK I'M LOOKING AT?! :cringe:
It's freaking huge! It puts even the Geofront "Jame Bond villain base" to shame! Is that WILLE's HQ? If that's the case then they got some super massive amounts of resources!

And what are the big airships in the sky? The bigger one could be the Wunder, but the other ones are so huge they could pass as destroyers from Star Wars!

And who's the guy in the forefront?

Is that image even related to Eva at all?!

Dat scale. I'm strongly considering getting the calendar at this point.

Inb4 it turns out Earth is nowhere near as fucked as we thought, Wille has resources out the wazoo, and humans have become a Type 1 civilization.

Yea you thought Gendo and Fuyu were some huge threat? Pfhahahah, the only reason they haven't been wiped out yet is because Wille Command feels sorry for them. Two lonely old men living alone in a bunch of old ruins, they couldn't hurt anyone if they tried.

Eh, I bet it's something post-2I related. That spurred on a nice building boom.

Given how many Nerv branches there are, Bethany and Golgotha bases being mention, and also a base ON THE MOTHERFUCKING MOON, this giant wall of technology seems to fit right in.

A Wille base sounds about right. For the guy walking around, I immediately thought "Kaji". (Perhaps on his way to Watermelon Patch 2.0.)

That Maeda illo has all sorts of goodies in the background: Spear of Longinus, Eva-13, Black Moon, wall of FOIs, tooth canyon...
