Masaki Yuasa will direct a new Devil Man for Netflix starting early 2018.

This makes me unbelievable happy - especially since Devilman was such an influence on Anno, but I've never gotten around to watching it. And it's directed by Yuasa by all people. Great news, great news.

I've never seen Eureka Seven. . . Would this be a good jumping on point? Is it going to be a sequel or reboot Ala Rebuild Of Eva? Only time will tell.

Who knows?

If you're interested in Eureka Seven (I rate it highly), just watch the original series, then stop.

Do not watch the film (Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers), which uses the same characters with different personalities and backstories to tell a different, incompatible, and inferior tale. Do not even acknowledge the existence of the "sequel" series (Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean), which retcons the original right from the start, and then retcons itself every couple of episodes, introduces new storylines and characters some weeks which are never resolved or heard of again, and overall is perhaps the worst sequel ever made.

If they make films that are true remakes of the original series but condensed to meet modern impatience, I guess that could be interesting - anything else has the potential to be a complete disaster. Either way, why wait? Just watch the original.

EU7 is in my top 5 fav anime ever! The hype is REAL!!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHP_9heGEKo

And yes, I hate Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers with a passion, but I don't think AO is as bad as people make it out to be, but mileage will vary on that.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Now I've read a bit about it, the idea is that the trilogy covers the original series, but starts earlier with the first "Summer of Love" that is only mentioned in the anime and then follows the same story but with a new ending. If they don't drop the ball, it could be a worthwhile addition to the franchise.

The films will follow The First Summer of Love phenomenon that occurred a decade before the first Eureka Seven series. The anime franchise thus far has hinted at, but never depicted in full, "the beginning of it all." The films will then have the same basic story as the first Eureka Seven series, but will have an original ending. The trilogy will have completely re-recorded lines, redone footage, and new scenes.

The trilogy will again feature the two protagonists of the first TV anime series, Renton Thurston and
Eureka, but will also introduce the "First Summer of Love" incident that occurred 10 years before the
TV anime story and was never directly illustrated in it. The site says that it will not be a remake or a
remix, and all dialogues will be reconstructed. With newly filmed and produced footage, the trilogy will
show a totally new ending "nobody has ever known."

I will have a laugh if the Rebuild of Eureka Seven film series finishes before Rebuild of Eva does.
