You'll get it. Just not as soon as your impatient little butt wants it.

I know, that was just an humorous reaction to Anno being... well Anno!
I mean when I read about the "laughing out loud" part, I could see the trollface and "what did you expect" meme appearing in my mind! :lol:

To rise the hype, that's the basic when selling your movie. Anno knows that he managed to get a reaction from everyone in Q, be it positive or negative, and that everyone want to know the rest of this story now that it took a completely unexpected turn, so why spoil that by giving away part of what will happen?
He'll start releasing teasers and trailers when he feel the moment to be right. And I'm ready to bet that said teasers and trailers won't tell us anything without the context of the whole movie, like the teaser with a piano, or the trailer with Asuka in space, sure she was in space in the movie, but the trailer didn't even hinted why she was up there and what she was fighting, in fact everyone thought that she was about to bring the fight to Arael up close and personal. (which would had been awesome btw!)

Blueballing would be if Anno came out with a series of production stills & released them online but had black tape smeared over everything new. I.E. A picture of every version of Unit 02 but the one that's going to be in Final is redacted.

Not telling people anything isn't blueballing. He's specifically saying he won't make any comment until things are good & ready. Probably the opposite of blue balling. He's not even saying classic PR bullshit like "We've done our best work yet this time around!" or "This is going to be the best entry yet!" or "I wish I could show you the amazing footage but not just yet!" He's doing the opposite of that. He's not trying to enhance or decrease people's anticipation. He's just keeping things quiet.

Wow. I had no idea the films were that strenuous on Anno.

Unless I hear anything to the contrary I guess I'll put my expectations for Final being released on NGE's 20th anniversary on hold.

He broke down again after he finished Q, but being married helped him to bear it. He was told by Miyazaki to persist to the end, so he will do so.

Jeez louise. If it's that painful for him, then I'm very grateful that he continues to push out Evangelion content for us.

If it takes another 4 years, maybe he can add more runtime to the final film, and finally give Shinji the closure he needs.

I suspect he feels this is something he needs, and not merely wants, to do. I hope he manages to bear it.

Poll time:

Do you think that Final will be able to be as 'emotionally powerful' as EoE was?

I believe that, just like EoTV and The End of Evangelion, Shin Eva will be exactly what Anno needs to express to his audience.

Wow, that's impressive the strain working on Eva seems to put on Anno, not only there's the fact that he basically put his whole mind naked for everyone to see when working on his characters, but now there's also the pressure to working on his Magnum Opus than became a classic of anime.

I wonder if his breakdown was a consequence of Q (and maybe the fan reactions, which were polarizing to say the least!) or if he was already starting to break before that and decided to pour his whole conflicted and tortured mind into the movie, like he did with EoE years ago, and is now dealing with the aftermath?

Anyway, unlike 20 years ago, he has someone to help him, his wife, and it apparently worked into making him better, so we can hope that Shin will have a more general light and hopeful tone.

I have no idea, but if Anno is under the kind of stress that he's implying, Shin is going to be a masterwork if he can manage to channel his feelings into it.

I fully trust in Anno, if he wants to release Shin 4 or 20 years after Q, it's ok I'm sure that he'll put his heart on it whenever he's ready to do it, if I were him I'd be absolutely terrified thinking in a proper way to end such work :( so yeah Master, take your time. :huggles:

The December 2014 issue of Newtype magazine (street date Nov 10th but internet leakers don't care) has apparently announced that the January 2015 (street date Dec 10th) issue of the magazine will feature a Shin Seiki Evangelion cover page as well as something else [s]I can't figure out because the big fat kanji blur together. That black circle with white writing. If anyone can read that that'd be great.[/s] 巻頭特集? So 表紙&巻頭特集 would be Cover page & some kind of special at the start of the issue?


Before anyone gets HYPED AS FUCK please do remember that the last time we got an Eva-related Newtype cover page it was the June 2011 issue with the Asuka plugsuit and lance but the only information inside the magazine was Anno asking people to be patient.

Here's the old hilarity

Don't forget that the final volume of manga is coming out and Kadokawa publishes it, same as Newtype, so...
