Oh noes... is right. Since Hideaki Anno is the one doing the films now, it's going to be bad. Actually, I think this is exactly what we have all been waiting for. Everyone has seen all 26 episodes and there should be more that just a movie. It seems like the Live-Action movie is going to happen and that will be animated by WETA Workshop, and this will be something seperate and entirely animated. Good show. I wish they had started earlier, now we will haveto anticipate this for a really long time. Thanks AchtungAffen.

I shall pray every morning for a prequel OVA. More Yui! More Gendo! More Kozo! More Adam, Lilith, and Evas! And... much, much more Dr. K! Image

...How many times has Anno purportedly gotten sick of "Eva" now? In any case, if the implications of this pan out, he'd better live up to his promise. That is to say, any possible illumination on preexisting mysteries should be shadowed by material to argue relentlessly about for at least another 10 years.

Wonder why he would be sick of his brainchild? Sure it was a depressing period of his life, but depression has created brilliant things.

6 possibilities I can think of right now
1. Angelic Days anime.
2. Prequel.
3. Sidestory that takes place during the series (à la Cowboy Bebop Movie).
4. Another alternate ending.
5. Remake.
6. Continuation (as in after the End).

amen. a prequel is definately what we need (as i've said for a looong time) and seeing our homies in their (slightly) younger days will always alow us to fuck up our interpretations of each character ever more.

I'm not going to get my hopes up but it is intriging. I'm not too bothered what it is if it is something new and Eva related although i'd like it to be a sequel or a prequel and not a side story during the series.

OMG it's perfect! It's been like 10 years and I'm dying for some new Eva stuff! I don't care what it'll be about, just Eva. But what else can you think of to add to the storyline really? The story had ended in a hopeless and hopeful way and what you can add maybe only a prequel just as Reichu said.

And that way, Studio Sokodei will have the footage they need to make Eva ReDeath: The Phantom Uberpimp.

Any additional Evangelion animation is something I would welcome with open arms, but it seems too good to be true.

I'm still hoping they remake the series and incorporate some of the manga changes, which in my opinion were for the better. Wow, this is exciting stuff, but I can't help but think it's going to be a huge disappointment.

8-7-06 (7:04AM EDT)---- New Evangelion Anime Movie(s) Coming?
One of the biggest rumors running this summer among Japanese fans online involves Studio GAINAX, presumably under the aegis of Director Hideaki Anno, re-editing and adding new animation footage to the original 1995 26 episode Evangelion TV series (ala Gundam Zeta) and releasing them as a series of new movies to Japanese theaters. So the story goes, as many as 4 movies could be produced and the 4th one may be entirely new material or may contain an entirely new ending to the Evangelion saga. A side rumor from a few months ago indicates a staff room for Evangelion was being created or renovated at GAINAX HQ. This questionable information started circulating prior to the below mentioned GAINAX search launched, looking for production and animation staff for a forthcoming Hideaki Anno directed animated film project codenamed "Color" (Khara). Those who meet the criteria are encouraged to email to joboffer(AT)khara.co.jp or call. What can be confirmed now as fact is Evangelion and project "Color" are connected and the proof can be found on GAINAX's official EVA website. At the bottom of the page, the copyright statement has added "color" (in katakana) to the Project Eva copyright information. Other twists include the following: A whois search for the domain khara.co.jp reveals it is registered to Khara Corporation. The name Todoroki Ikki is listed as registration and tech contact. It's worth noting Anno Hideaki appeared in the movies Taste of Tea and Naisu No Mori with Todoroki Ikki. Additionally, a search on GAINAX's company overview page shows the Director's name is no longer present. This is leading many to speculate "Color / Khara" could be a spinoff studio perhaps similar to Hideo Kojima's production label "Kojima Productions" or Hayao Miyazaki's private office "Ni Bariki".

Isn't "khara" Mongolian for "look out!"..?

As far as the possibility of new Eva material goes, I won't get my hopes up, but I won't complain either.

I don't think I'm going to get my hopes up, but I wouldn't mind a prequel or a sidestory. However, an Angelic Days anime would make me vomit. The manga is bad enough.

But then there is always the sad possibility that we have just gotten our hopes up and that Color has nothing to do with Eva whatsoever. :(
Then again, I could be totally wrong. I'll just wait for more info to come about.

well, there was a rumour - picked up on here - that that there was an eva prequel in the works, so this would help back that idea up...though it might be completely unconnected.

I wouldn't mind a prequel but anything else I would probably pass on. Hell since everyhting is just a rumor right now maybe Anno is just doing this to fuck with people again.

Same here. "Prequel or bust."

Although if they wanted to make something about Yui In Spaaaaaaace!!!, or a story of the FAR (which would feature two characters we know -- guess who), I would also be giddy as a schoolgirl. But both of those have, like, 0% chance of happening.

Now, to put this development out of my mind and relieve my expectations into the toilet.

I'd like it to be some ALL GODDAMN NEW characters, like Diebuster compared with Gunbuster. I'm sick of the old characters, to be honest.
