@ Mari's Plugsuit....

What if she just had more than 1 plug suit lying around?

Great catch with the Wunder strings attached to the eva though, I wouldn't have noticed that at all.

Are they promoting the movie, or a new toy.
I personally like the makeshift look.

The movie. The Eva-08 is not a product or prototype for one. Those are always clearly marked as such.

I was being facetious, because they showed off a statue of the new Unit while threatening people who made the actual teaser public with legal action on twitter.
Honestly, this archaic distribution decision kind of made lose a little bit of respect for Khara. What happened to the global vision of the Anima(tor) Expo?

I'm assuming that could be Toei or Toho getting on people's asses since they're joining in the distribution of Shin Eva. (I don't recall any posted PSAs from Khara about 3.0 and what have you, though obviously they don't take too kindly to people recording their work.)

That's a completely different product made for a different purpose and a different audience. It was putting Eva money to use in nurturing and promoting the animation industry and global appeal is part of that.

New Eva itself, especially 3.0, is most certainly not made with a global audience in mind. The movie was shaped by the experiences of March 2011 and how Japan's unique social dynamic dealt with that. Add on the numerous hard to translate dialogue choices and it's pretty obvious this is made specifically for Japan itself.


Also why are people complaining about the creators exercising their rights to control who sees the trailer when and how? That's their choice.

And for something that's explicitly publicity it seems a pretty stupid choice.

Maybe they feel they'll get a greater amount of bad publicity this way, which will be good for them...

I really don't see this. If they think this way about Eva, I disagree. We live in a globalized world. Eva is the favourite work of many people outside Japan, and I'm quite sure they bring khara some money too.

Also very recently the Cruel Angel's Thesis single which I own came with English translations for the songs.

Khara can do what they want, it's their right obviously, but I see no logical reason to say "this is a work only for Japanese people".

I pretty recently read and loved Hamlet, I'm a Spanish dude from the 21st century, I'm sure Shakespeare didn't have me in mind. Yet time has proven it's a work important to the world, despite language barriers.

Also why are people complaining about the creators exercising their rights to control who sees the trailer when and how? That's their choice.

I think the marketing practices can be critiziced like anything else. I don't think anybody is implying khara doesn't have the right to promote the film like they want, but voicing an opinion about how they do it is something normal I think.

What they did with this trailer wasn't bad at all, I just think it would have been better other ways.

There is something exciting about a trailer exclusive to the cinema, but in current times the result was a very large part of Eva fans experiencing it this way:

Hearing about its contents on the internet, seeimg the featured mech through khara social media, seeing the trailer through a recording, then finally seeing the trailer.

The trailer is obviously still great and pretty, but I think an online global release, maybe with a countdown even, would have had more energy.

You could even reveal the trailer being at the cinema and reveal upfront it will be online later, and this way people could choose to not watch it until the online release.

It's not like this is super important, khara might still be experimenting with marketing, and the reason I'm a fan is their works, not their marketing, but I think it's normal to have opinions on this like on the films themselves.

Probably just a silly thought, but: are these images not from the previous period between Ha and Q? Improvised Combat Configuration does not necessarily imply that it was improvised by Wille. It seemed more like a rudimentary prototype, something taken from Eva Anima or like. The color pattern looks like Mark 09 (which is the flying Eva!). She seemed more to be testing that thing than fighting!
If Wille made the module why paint it orange? Why not pink or red? Does Wille have the resources to paint something?

I dont think so... The torso plates are from Eva-08 beta, wich was an upgrade made after Operation US.

My theory: The reason we don't see what Unit 08 is fighting against is that with Toho on board, all Angels and monsters will be live action, i.e. actors in rubber suits, and they're still designing the suits. :D

First thing I thought of when I saw the new 08 design was Jet Alone. Maybe that project still existed within rebuild and they just co-opted some of their tech.

For all intents and purposes, Wille IS the Jet Alone of the Rebuilds in that it’s the only rival organization who has the crew and gusto to rival Nerv. The only real difference is that Misato leads Wille instead of what's his face from Ep 7, and she (presumably) has scores to settle.

But the parallel doesn't go very far; Jet Alone was shown up as an absurdity in a single early episode, whereas Wille is clearly a major player in Q, and will continue to be in the final film.

If you really want a parallel, Wille would be the JSSDF. Which, in return, would further raise the question who are the "good guys", if there are any

IMO, there are no inherently "good" nor "bad" parties in Evangelion... Only people serving their own (usually selfish) purposes... Many may do morally questionable things to attain their goals, but in the end, they all want what they think it's the best.

The good guys are whoever Shinji & co. are currently employed by.
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.
