- March 10th. The special re run of NGE on NHK ends with episode 26 on that day. After every episode they run a small special called "Evanashi" in which they interview famous japanes actors and ask them about their relationship with Evangelion. Maybe something can come out of this but I don't know how likely it is since the episode airs at 23:45 so it's a late hour.
- April 1st. Usual date for announcements in Japan due to the start of the fiscal year.
- July 19th. 20 years after the release date of EoE.
- August 7th-9th. Lantern festival.
- September 1st. 10 years after 1.0.
- November 12th. 5 years after Q.
Six dates now.
June 27th. 8 years after 2.0/Ha (i don't know if it's an important date, but i had to mention it nonetheless).
