Guys, I hate to say it, but the film is probably still way too early in production for them to reveal anything. Your excitement is just way too premature.

The frustrating thing about this is that Anno was on the record In October of 2013 saying the screenplay was more or less finished, with him just making revisions.

Something's going on here; it seems either Anno believes he's written himself into a corner where nothing he drafts for Final is satisfying for him, or he's simply lost interest in this project and views working on it like a chore.

Which do you think we'll get first? A release date for The Winds of Winter or a release date for Final?
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

Let's say that we wont get anything FINAL related until December of 2018. An announcement or change on the Eva site would've been nice still. Anno commented on making the new Godzilla in 2015 and the movie didn't come out until over a year later. Some promotional artwork, ANYTHING would've been nice.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

Honestly, I don't think Final is EVER going to come out, cause maybe Anno gave Rebuild the fitting end to it already. Shinji being dragged through the desert by the person who hates him the most out of everyone, after nearing ending the world for the most selfish of reasons, surrounded by the hell that he created, that's pretty much symbolistic of Shinji's entire life.

Hated by all for his selfish actions, surrounded by people who despise him, and never moving an inch forward because he simply can't. The ending pretty much sums up who Shinji is: A Selfish BRAT that will never change, because that's what he is: A FAILURE. :devil: :mwahaha: :evillaugh:


P.S. For those that know me, look at the date. XD I LOVE Shinji, NEVER forget that. :shinji_blush:

^ Ah... April Fool's humor.

I wonder how many were genuinely scared by your comment.

There's also the possibility that after his depression Anno wanted to change most of the screenplay and/or wanted to rework some scenes in the first three movies like he did with NGE and the director's cut episodes.

We could speculate that pre-production started almost from scratch last summer and therefore they had nothing to show now.

Doesn't quite work, since the title without the "not" is an initial condition, and with the "not" is the eventual one. E.g.,

(A) You are alone - Shinji starts off believing he's alone.
(B) You are not alone - Shinji ends up having friends and stuff.

(A) You can redo - Shinji is led to believe that he can magically fix things.
(B) You can not redo - Welp! Not so much.

Since 3+1 would begin with Shinji thinking he is not worthy, it would have to be, "You are (not) unworthy" -- he starts off feeling no self-worth but eventually (re-)learns that he has value.

Anyway, the 1st is here and, invariably, nothing happened. We already know where this thread goes from here, so let's not and say we did.
