Seriously, how long does he fricken take to just announce a release date.

I don't know. I just don't think that one should take this much time to announce something relating to it. At least give a tentative date or production still.

I don't know. Personally, I think that if they continue to take this much time, you're gonna sap away a lot of the enthusiasm. Either that, or you raise the hype to such a degree that it coming up short would be quite a letdown.

Yeah, that's like saying "If Star Wars 7 doesn't get a subtitle, it'll sap enthusiasm." No one will ever load interest in FINAL because of this.

Khara seems to follows Valve's philosophy about the release date of their creations : "It'll be done when it's done".
This way they don't have the pressure of a deadline and can work and experiment as much as they want, especially since Anno is the kind of guy who can redraw a scene more than 40 times, make the VA repeat their lines as much and completely change part of the script at the last moment until he's 100% satisfied by the result. And that's what makes his creations so good.

So leave time to time, a date will be announced when they'll be sure to be able to respect it.

The problem with this philosophy is that it gives people too much time to create unrealistic expectations for the product, and when the product is finally released people are insanely disappointed because it didn't meet any of their absurdly high demands. Don't believe me? Just look at Q. The amount of speculation before that movie came out was pretty high, and now it's the most debated of the three films outside Evageeks.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

Seeing how the movie's true contents was hided from everyone until the moment it was in the theaters, that might have been exactly Anno's intent!
Look at it : with 1.0 and 2.0 people was only curious about Anno's new take on his magnum opus, that was "Anno, director of NGE, making a new version of his most well known franchise", but now with Q's epic trolling of the audience expectation, Anno, the legendary mind-screwer is back!

That's the people's own fault. Frankly I think that the implication it's the creator's duty to keep silly and impatient people in-check is ridiculous. The one and only thing that should be expected is for them to give their best effort to the work. It's out when it's out. They'll let you know when you have a need to know.


Either way http://www.evangelion.co.jp/, http://www.khara.co.jp/, nor the khara/eva twitters have been updated even after New Year's Day so it's safe to say 6) is the result of the thread.

At this point, the biggest thing that I'm interested to see addressed is that rumor about a 2015 release date. Considering how sketchy the rumor is, I expect nothing to come of it-- but if something does, I'm going to be super excited.

Well, at the start of the year (2014), Ogata herself mentioned how there was supposed to be voicework done for Eva/FINAL... So yeah, just wait and see if anything'll happen in the coming year. ^_^

I was thinking if they'd update for FINAL, it'd be during the day on January 1st over there. We still have the possibility of the updated FINAL preview on the 2nd Japan time.

Even if not, the Twitter post is pretty :wink:

I wasn't expecting anything today, 3.33 is on TV tomorrow, if nothing comes from that, then we can be crushed. If we don't hear something then, I don't think we see this movie till 2016 tbh.
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

Technically the day after tomorrow. Still 1 day and ~17.75 hours to go.

Jan 2nd 24:58 JST = Jan 3rd 00:58 JST = Jan 2nd 14:59 EST

Add 2 hours until the movie is over for actual potential news time.

So as far as I can tell no news yet, besides stuff for NGE 20th Anniversary... Right?

Are any of the Evageeks on news active on the steam group? It is rather difficult to keep up with new threads.

Besides that I imagine SSD is active on Twitter when needed and correct me if I am wrong but any news would be posted on Twitter right?
