Having seen them all, I'd say my favorite would be:
1. Kanon
2. Bubu & Bubulina
3. Me! Me! Me!
4. I can Friday by Day
5. Nishi-Ogikubo Station

So what shorts did other people like the most?

I rather liked Hill Climb Girl. The others were mostly, I felt, forgettable or not my thing.

Dragon Dentist is the one getting a feature length production? That's kinda surprising. :huh:

To celebrate the announcement, NHK will air Evangelion IN HD on or starting (I'm not sure which) September 16. I didn't think they'd broadcast it again so soon. The LINElive run just ended a week ago. But hey, more Eva is more Eva!
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Well this is certainly interesting. For one this possibly explains what Tsurumaki has been doing this whole time. Another interesting part is that Anno is the Audio Recording director. Maybe he just likes working with Hayashibara and Yamadera so much?

Looking forward to it.


EDIT: As ANN has pointed out, the news that one of the Expo shorts would get a TV special was announced back in March, so that might be how long they've been working on it:

Also note: "One or more", so there's potential for more Khara on TV.

Animator Expo working on a Patlabor Reboot Extra!

I thought they were finished with new animation work for the short film series, specifically. I guess extending The Dragon Dentist brought interesting back into the short film production?

So if SHIN GODZILLA is Anno's "recharge my batteries before diving back into Eva" feature film I guess this makes DRAGON DENTIST the Tsurumaki equivalent.

If I'm reading this correctly, there's a Dragon Dentist PV coming out on the 16th?

The Dragon Dentist PV is up: http://www.nhk.or.jp/anime/ryu/en/


Meanwhile, Anno and Kawakami are in France at the MIPCOM entertainment trade fair



Never heard of MIPCOM before but apparently it's a huge thing:

Dragon dentist is getting a movie? That should be pretty good. Now if only they would do that for carnage too.

The second animation book, Robot on the Road has been released.

https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/490503311X/

Mine has arrived at it is fantastic. The big change from the first book is that this one is in full color just like the last Q Groundwork (I'm pretty sure I've praised this approach in the relevant thread back then too). This allows you to see the various color pencils used for different things which all get smooshed together if the book is B&W. Apparently this was done after a survey https://twitter.com/khara_inc/status/788909790797803522

10/10 Will keep buying these.

^How many of the shorts are they going to make the art books for? I thought that only "20 minutes from..." & "Cassette Girl" were going to get them.

The episode is 'distributed' until February though? or is that just my location?

I expect that's the normal Animator Expo "We put these short features up for a few weeks only" behaviour.
