You have to place an order through one of the various import websites: it's going on sale on the Eva shop (4500 yen + taxes) and it ships only in Japan. I'm sure it will cost you more than €50 in the end.

Both the "English" slogan and the font used for it I find independently offputting. At least on the poster I can ignore them and look at the picture, but on a T-shirt? No way!

I suppose it can have a strange beauty (like some Franglais too), but this example just doesn't do it for me.

Clothing and other normie stuff has been like 90% of Eva merchandise for years now. There's annoyingly little proper otaku merchandise. The reality is completely contrary to the reputation Eva has for merch.

I always assumed Otaku merch referred specifically to figurines and body-pillows. I'm not sure whether or not I've latched onto a horrible stereotype, though I will admit to owning quite a few Asuka figurines.

Thank you...
Evangelion is confusing as it is for outsiders withouth cryptic messages in questionable phrasing...

Just imagine walking down the street with a shirt spelling that :uhh:

I'd flaunt it. Nobody needs to read my shirt or understand the reference but me anyways.

Even as a huge fan of Eva and practically anything Anno, I cannot get past the use of English in the poster or this t-shirt. The best use of possibly accidentally mis-used English from a non-native English speaker is the lyrics for "The Sun Always Shines On TV" by aHa. That became poetry. Sure, we native English speakers don't speak like that, but it's a shame that we don't.

The new Khara2 twitter account is fun. Basically, it seems someone at Khara is allowed to tweet the experience of "keenly making" Final. It's a less formal official account that offers a more behind-the-scenes look at production. Nothing too informative yet. Though apparently Mahiro Maeda has had curry for lunch five days in a row, Anno loves bread and snacks, they've been doing some new storyboards and might be doing some motion capture for something in the film. Oh and they're full on in production with a very happy Anno.

I think this is a good account to keep an eye on.

Motion capture? Hoo boy. Live action EOE segment redux perhaps?

Maybe they are motion capturing for CG characters? Watching Rebuild of Evangelion 3.33 I noticed they used 3D models of the characters in some scene on the Wunder dock, so it could be that. Or maybe they are motion capturing some Eva fights. Anno seems to be pushing CG a lot, I expect good things.

The storyboards:



Oh and Sagisu is working hard on the soundtrack:
