When your Animation Studio is so down in the dumps you have to sell tomatoes to make ends meet? You probably should have packed it in years ago.

Puts on my best Verbal Kint impression.

"And like that - poof - Gainax was gone."


...or not. Let's see if this is real & not just Yamaga bluffing to appear in control.

I find it hard to believe that Yamaga was able to raise the $40 million budget for this film. Gainax hasn't had bankability for nearly a decade. Who the hell would stake them?
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

How is this going to affect the fourth movie?
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

I also suspect that we'll see less GAINAX in the credits.

I'd have to check but I don't believe Gainax was credited at all in 3.0. Once Anno wrapped up dealing with material from the original show in the Rebuilds he bought them out & bid them adieu.

I wonder if this is why Evangelion seems to have stopped being overmerchandised in the toy market. It never quite got to the level of overmerchandising Gundam was at but I remember some years ago they had a ton of stuff out , but last time I visited acens dealer room this year it was much more modest.
