- 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).

I could see them maybe doing a little drawing for the lantern festival or a full movie name reveal at the end of 2017. Don't think it'll be out this year lol.

Honestly, I wouldn't expect anything other than April 1st, Q's TV release has been done for almost three years now and that's the latest we got any last minute advertising for the next movie. Anything else for me would be grasping at straws.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

I realised I've made a mistake here: episode 26 will air in March 17th and not on March 10th.
NHK also announced (http://www.nhk.or.jp/bs/lineup/pdf/bsp_nextmonth.pdf) they'll air Death & Rebirth on March 24th and The End of Evangelion on March 31th, coinciding with the already mentioned April 1st possible date.
So I guess I'm going to look forward to April 1st and thesubsequent disappointment, then I'm going to be disappointed again mid Summer.

The Eva website had an update about the movies airing on NHK BS Premium too. http://extr.b-ch.com/cgi-bin/eva_news/o ... ctg_c=1001 "BS Premium Edition?" I wonder what that's about? :???:
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Sounds like just a silly term for the movie airing on NHK BS Premium. Like if when Eva 2.22 aired on Toonami calling that "The Toonami Edition".

Fingers crossed though they'll do something Final related after EOE finishes airing. Having a 28 week long high-gloss NGE airing end on a date that usually involves major film announcements seems very intentional.

I don't think they'll announce anything right after EoE, it's in the midle of the night and Eva is too big for that time slot.

Like I said, fingers crossed. Not really expecting anything. But you never know with these films.
Very little in the major announcements/marketing of Rebuild makes practical sense or plays by actual rules so while it's fun to make guesses (And it is fun to put on a detective hat) I admit it is foolish to do so. Pretty much every revelation of new information regarding the film series since first announced in 2006 has been out of the blue. The last film dropped the official title at like the stroke of midnight on New Year's out of nowhere, threw out entire trailers that were just rotoscoped animation of rainbow pianos with zero actual footage & kept the entire narrative of the film a complete secret to the entire world right up until the first theatrical screenings finished on opening night. I wouldn't hold it past Anno & Co to not even announce the title of Final until the film is finished & then just go "Oh yeah, we quietly released the last Eva movie in theaters last night. You can get a ticket now."
That Khara Krew is an interesting bunch.

We'll probably get something April 1st since that's when Japanese big announcements are made.

Maybe there's nothing to announce (yet).

I kinda hope they don't announce a date because I fear it's going to be a long time in the future (winter or 2018).

They wouldn't announce a date unless it was somewhat nearby, Japan doesn't operate like Hollywood where they set dates for movies years in advance.

April 1st 2015 was when Shin Godzilla was announced.

At the VERY least, we'll get an international title.

My bets are on:
You Must (Not) Run Away
You Will (Not) Find Love
You Must (Not) Be
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

"You Must (Not) Run Away" is the title I've been hoping for for years.
That and "You Can (Not) Die".

Of course I still expect to hear nothing on April 1st & quietly shrug.
But I've got hope.
You Can (Not) Hope?

If we take the start of this year as the start of real work on the film, then we are looking, realistically, at late 2018 for the release (this film is a big, big deal - they're not going to rush it! If they spend twice as long per minute as they did on The Dragon Dentist that'll be no surprise). I don't expect any announcement until New Year 2018.

So now we have:

    - July 19th. 20 years after the release date of EoE.
    - August 7th-9th. Lantern festival.
    - September 1st. 10 years after 1.0.
    - January 1st. New Years Eve.

Bolded are sort of likely bets, italics are maybes.
