Maybe the N means New, Neon, or Not?

I really need to say with all the hype everyone had on this site including myself, we are all found to be really dissapointed. The hype I must say was awesome while it lasted, before anyone knew what we where going to actually get. Also I'm quite confused with how 3.0+1.0 has the ability to come out at the same time as Halo 5(Late Fall 2015) but we know so much more about Halo 5 then Evangelion 3.0+1.0. Now I'm not trying to start a disscussion here about Halo 5 or anything, but I think Anno must be telling us the least possible so the final movie is as hard hitting as mentally possible or emotionally. Now that's just my take on it.

Anno the trolling master has out done himself once again.

It just now occurs to me that the N colors match with the old 'blood type' coding system. Will final's N be in sepia?

Huh? That sounds interesting.
It's not just the color of the N, it's the color of each movie (for example of the BD cases).
Final will be white apparently.

Well, I suppose we were asking for it. I mean, honestly, getting this hyped up for what we knew was going to be just a short teaser. . .I guess we kind of deserve this.

^So...is this FINAL? Or an interim movie about what went on while Shinji was in stasis?

I'm still at work, but I saw the title cards and nearly burst out laughing. Hopefully we'll get some info in the coming months.

Such is the burden of being an expectant fan. Honestly, this MUST be one of the perks of being ANY kind of director. You get to troll your audiences all the time. :devil:

Nope.

I really couldn't be happier, as long as this no news means they're nowhere near getting things done. Given previous pattern that means there is still a year to go at the absolute minimum. I have long wanted to do the Japan trip for premier but kept on wasting time. This is a sign, a gift from the gods that I still do have time to make the Final Premier an awesome experience for myself. I'm gonna go get 6 jobs, work my ass off to save up the money, study Japanese until my brains leaks and when the promised time comes my body and wallet will be ready. I'll watch the movie in theaters starting from day 1 and for a week straight, occasionally checking into the forum to laugh at everyone else you can't experience the glory as intended.

@TMBounty_Hunter Y U so cruel?

No but seriously I'll be very envious when that fateful day comes. Hopefully we get some kind of preview before you get things set just to be a spoiler. :P

@xanderkh Some of my coworkers were giving me funny looks afterword. Maybe a little less eva at work

You're really lucky that you have a option to do that. And I would love to learn Japanese too, beats Spanish.

I'll just add that I think most subconsciously knew that this was going to happen.

But hey that works into your plans TM but for me now I need to wait even more. I would love an opportunity to visit Japan, but in the near-future or to make it for the last Evangelion film there is no way.

View Original Postpwhodges wrote:Another thought about this title. The Japanese dramatic structure Jo, Ha, Kyuu is three parts, not four. This ties in with the fact that at various times it was suggested that the third and fourth films would be released together, or perhaps in quick succession. This they obviously found they could not manage; but maybe the announced title is reminding us that the last film is in essence the second part of Kyuu (which implies that it will be a pretty direct continuation of the story as well).


No, not really: neither is this due to the fear of four (the Chinese reading of four, shi, is homophonous with death).

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo-ha-kyū[/url]
While Jo-ha-kyu has three parts, there's a fourth part following the hard-hitting third that depicts a great journey, followed by a fifth that brings things to a rapid conclusion. Reading through the wikipedia article, Anno really has been sticking to this structure.

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kishōtenketsu[/url]
There's also the four-part drama or Kishotenketsu, The "Ketsu" part is the resultant of the previous parts, and the "sho" is really the follow-on to the introduction (ki). Naming it Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 would make the new movie the "resultant" to the previous story. The very fact that the old preview says "Saigo made saabisu saabisu" (Fanservice till the end) suggests that Anno is indeed planning to wrap it up here.

Honestly, I'm more hopeful than disappointed. Maybe we didn't get anything yet because the guys over at the studio are planning something that will generate even bigger hype than what happened with this? Regardless of what happens, as long as there is a purple robot in the movie I will love it. :P

Watch this be a Death & Rebirth style clip movie condensing the first 3 films into a somehow even less coherent mess.

Well, at least two parts of my prediction were true (albeit, one part was granted)- the teaser would be the shortest yet and troll hard. I'm surprised so many people are disappointed though, the Eva community can't be that detached from Anno's already-detached-reality. Maybe it's just been a long week. lol.
Just like characters in his films, he only grants us little increments of progress *sigh* I have one question though, aside from the high he gets from tormenting fans, do you think we only get two cards as a teaser because very little development is actually done with 3.0 + 1.0? We might not get a movie in years :irked:
