There's bound to be a ton of great Qnfo. I wish I could go, but NEET life chose me. My only hope is the fact that the exhibit will travel around Japan until end of 2014.

2013/10/26-12/27:Fukuoka - Kitakyushu Manga Museum
2014/02/15-04/20:Niigata - Niigata Manga Animation Museum

So what are the chances we get a little morsel of Final news at the opening? Is this pretty much gap-padding or is there a chance?

Given how the previous exhibition have given nothing at all of future works and only concentrated on what's long been done I wouldn't get my hopes up about any announcements.

I'm not sure if I'm interpreting this right but apperently there is a huge book of genga collection being offered.

I very desperately need to get my hands on this.

EDIT: This is definitely looking like an actual product being offered

I would miss it for the times I am thinking of going. No worldwide tour until 2015 at least.

Since I wasn't able to google up the info I needed I decided to just try and get the exhibit catalog book myself. Today it has finally arrived into my hands and it is glorious. I can say it is my new favorite thing.

The book is sold both at the Exhibit itself (currently at the Matsuya Ginza department store) but is also available from the Matsuya Ginza website:
http://www.welci.jp/matsuya/products/detail.php?product_code=62502-EV14

While as far as I could tell they don't ship outside Japan, I have managed to harass a friend in Japan to grab one and send it to me. Anyway, here's what's inside:

More than half of the of the book (111 out of 196 pages) is taken up by the Real Scale Gallery where the various materials are beautifully reproduced in their actual size and full color. This section is done of fairly light weight paper with a matte finish which I guess is done to reproduce the full look of the originals but this leads to things being printed only on one side of the page.

The next section is the Genga Gallery. This (and the rest of the book) is printed on heavier and glossier paper and on both side. This is closer to what you'd find in the CRCs. Sometimes small, sometimes big and a great selection.

Oh and there's two amazing fold-outs. The first one is the layout for that glorious Q ending shot:
SPOILER: Show
Image


The other side has concept drawings for the Giant of Light and Sahaquel
SPOILER: Show
Image



The next section is the Settei Gallery. Character and other designs and reference sheets. This is pretty much exactly what's in the CRC with most of the character art being a lot smaller here.
SPOILER: Show
Image


The highlight of this section for me was that they gave full pages to Takeshi Takakura's layouts for Futagoyama, Matsushiro, Mark.06 at Tabha and Eva lift.
SPOILER: Show
Image


The end of this secion is two pages of tiny thumbs of what I assume is the full list of settei materials on exhibit. So that "catalog" section of the exhibition catalog is just 2 pages...
SPOILER: Show
Image


The 4th section is the explanation of the making of the films. Script, storyboard, imageboard, layout, genga, douga, 3DCG, etc

The 5th and final section is Evangelion History where they give you a taste of Eva TV cels and then some manga pages.

Overall I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS BOOK. Like I said in the opening paragraph it is my new favorite things. It is HUGE. 25.5cm by 35.5cm. The printing quality is also amazing. It's the best I've ever seen. Extremely fine quality. Have a terrible photo to try and demonstrate that.
SPOILER: Show
Image


So how does this compare to the CRC and Groundworks?
The groundworks focuses specifically on the animation, so you get all of your douga and timesheets but to fit all that in an affordable book it's all in black and white.
The CRC is full of interviews, has complete storyboards and the pictures part focuses on the settei, the design work and only occasionally gives you the full color genga/douga.
This book gives you everything in color and a great selection of materials from the layout through to final animation from all 3 movies. There are no insightful interviews and the very brief making-of explanations are all technical.

My only gripe with it is the lack of attributions. That's my main gripe with the Groundworks books. You get lots of material but are never told who is responsible for it. The only time this catalog gives attributions is for things from 1.0 and 2.0 that are already in the CRCs. It was very disappointing to all of that labled in the exhibit thumbs and when it gets to the Q material it just drops the attributions. Seriously. The CRCs label every little sketch and doodle in the book. Surely for the exhibition they could have at least tried attributing stuff. Oh well...hopefully Q CRC fixes this....

Still a very, VERY lovely product and if this is your thing I would recommend trying to acquire it as long as you can pay a reasonable price and avoid the scalpers. The MSRP is 3,000 yen so judge the offers you find accordingly.
