It's now confirmed that Anno is onboard for Toho's new Godzilla movie planned for next year, along with Shinji Higuchi doing the special effects. http://skreeonk.com/2015/03/31/skreeonk ... rdirector/

The original article is here, if anyone wants to attempt a translation: http://www.oricon.co.jp/special/47834/

I wonder what implications this will have for Eva Final's release? We already knew not to expect it anytime soon, but this confirmation that Anno's working on other projects seems to set it back that much further. Still, Anno's getting his own Godzilla movie! This is exciting news on its own, and perhaps it'll be the very thing he needs to refresh himself before taking on Eva once again.

It's only no fun when you go and spoil it like that. And I refuse to be an April fool when it's still March here, dammit.

It's confirmed? Where do you guys find these utterly retarded English sites. Anno wrote the screenplay and supervising, while Shinji Higuchi is directing and handling special effects.

Anno posted a letter on the JP Evangelion site: http://www.evangelion.co.jp/news_20150401.html

Actually this news might be legit, unless even with that letter it's a really elaborate prank. lol

Reading the really crappy google translate version of the letter it seems to repeat what we've heard previous that he was exhausted after Q.


I'm pretty sure this isn't a thing to joke about and Japan isn't as excited about April Fool's as US.

I'd still take this with a huge grain of salt. Why announce such a thing on April 1st, of all days.


So, does this mean Anno's gonna make a Godzilla movie after he finishes Final? I mean, google translate only provides for just so much understanding. Can somebody please translate this more effectively?

Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

Looks legit as fuck.


As some people have pointed out, April 1st is the first day of the fiscal year.

It's April 1st in Japan, yeah and both the Khara and Eva sites mentioned the official Godzilla statement. I was somewhat skeptical myself when I saw the news though. -o-; From what I can tell, his statement said to "Please wait" regarding FINAL.

Do the Japanese celebrate April Fool’s Day? I thought that was mostly a Western thing.

At least the Anime-world loves it. Look at this.
Love what they did to Mushishi and what Aniplex did with "Nisekoimonogatari". :lol:

Ok, very limited Japanese on my end, don't trust me, but I think, I've got the gist of it.

Basically Anno's saying, the he wasn't in studio Khara for the entirety of 2013, and he considered stopping in working in animation, due to his depression. Then he reconsidered due to all of the support he got from his friends and family. Also, the power of love from Eva-fans. He works on Shin Eva now and people should look forward to it.
Seems pretty legit and falls into place with all the tiny details we got out of his mouth regarding Eva.

Regarding Godzilla he said, he turned it down at first, because of his mental state, then was talked into it by Higuchi.
If this all holds true, this would be once again, one of the many clever marketing ploys by Anno. And it would show, what an impressive career Higuchi and Anno have had. Not only they've climbed out of the Anime ghetto, they are now responsible for the biggest Live Action movies in history.

I'll admit that a small part of me was a little angry, because Anno is doing yet another project before finishing Eva. Angry is not the word, just a little annoyed. But with robersora's summary translation...wow. If the guy needs this, then he should do it.
And Godzilla by Anno sounds interesting.
Reminder that the Nausicaa inspired short he made with Higuchi was awesome.

Edit: I also just learned that April 1st is the first day of the fiscal year. That explains the Nintendo Direct...

According to Anime News Network, Anno is going to be chief director and writer on a new Japanese Godzilla movie set to come out in summer 2016. What does this mean for Final? Does it mean the film is almost complete and will be coming out this year, or are we going to be in for an even longer wait?

I am just as terrified as I am excited. And both of my emotions are extreme.

Isn't that how Anno always makes us feel?

Supposedly, Anno finished the screenplay for Final over a year ago, but he's been revising it continuously. No one knows if he's truly finalized it yet. That being said, animation could very well have already commenced on Final depending on how much of the screenplay Anno is certain about. But the one thing we may have going for us is that it is still possible that Final may come out this year. The release date for Q wasn't announced until the beginning of July 2012, only four and a half months away. I would hope that Anno would just finish Rebuild already so it ceases to loom over him even as he works on other projects.

Plus I kinda want to be done with this franchise for a while and concentrate on other things in life.

But does Eva want to be done with you? That's the real question.
