Remember when they released the summer 2011 Newtype cover with Asuka and the Spear of Cassius? People got really antsy after that because there was no new information for a couple months, and then again later with the NTV teaser short came out.

Godzilla Resurgence DOES look incredible and I really hope there's some kind of US release for it. And it's not like everyone was sitting around idle before that. We got three seasons of the Animator Expo!

It doesn't bother me anymore, honestly, but I can sympathize with the people who do feel that way because I remember being the same way waiting for 3.0. You're right that the best way to deal with it is to try and put it out of your mind and not dwell on it.
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!

And it's the reason why the other fan-fictions exists like Reticence which while probably not following the themes Anno will show in 4.0, is pretty good "What if?" conclusion.
Having some fan fiction in your head does help I'll admit.

You should go for it, getting back into writing fic for the past year has been really rewarding for me. Was a good way to relax on my lunch breaks and also when I got home after the long shifts.

I was actively avoiding doing anything in the Rebuild universe preferring to stick with the original, just because that's complete and there is still so much we don't know about Rebuild yet but after writing The Catalyst I had an idea for a short piece so settled down to write Hand.Cannot.Erase.

I actually need to settle down and read yours some time as well.

I'd really not expect anything in this year except -POSSIBLY- an official teaser for a 2017 release.

I'd dearly love to be wrong about that (in a shortened duration way, not a longer one!) but it's been proven that Khara is not beholden to any production schedule, and what was initially going to be a 3-4 year project of retelling Eva has ballooned out to 10 years with presumably no real backlash for the studio except from the curses from beyond the grave by fans who have died waiting for this retelling of their favourite animated story to be finished!

^ I like that. In a world where executives thought that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or Batman v Superman was a good idea to rush because money, it's nice to see a franchise take its time and not depend on the next reboot to try and solve any of any problems rushing it might have caused to begin with.

I can't speak for EvaMonkey, but for me personally the waiting process has become more of a moment of zen rather than it is an intense, ridiculously elongated wait. It'll get here when it gets here. In the meantime, Godzilla Resurgence will be the best Godzilla movie since both the 1954 film and the 1975 The Terror of Mechagodzilla.

Absolutely. The best way to find the differences and similarities in two artists is to compare them to one another.

And my point still stands, regardless of how much you guys worship everything Anno does.

Both Wagner and Anno are gods that need my worship? Why didn't you inform me of this sooner?! I could have been smote by the Valkyries and their AT Fields!

I already apologized to Reichu. But I explained that I was trying to bait him into this conversation. But personally I haven't seen in on the forum for a while.

A teaser of 3+1 might come once Shin Zilla is released, which is approaching and that movie will be here soon.

Still it's a little saying I have.
--When it was Summer 2014 we said it would come in Winter 2015, when Summer 2015 came around we said it would come in Winter 2016, and now that Summer 2016 is here we are saying it's coming in 2017.

A teaser accompanying the theatrical release of Godzilla seems like a reasonable possibility. It would arguably be the best outlet for Anno to tease 3+1, and it's far enough in the future for it to seem plausible that 3+1 would be in good enough shape from a production standpoint for them to be able to put together a teaser trailer.

Of course, possibility and probability aren't the same thing... it's also entirely possible Godzilla could come and go without so much as a whimper related to 3+1, so don't get all bent outta shape when that inevitably turns out to be the case. :lol:

^Kharas gonna Khara. :tongue: We know they're working on it, so it's just a matter of time, really!

It would be a huge mistake financially, but from a fan pov, a Shin Eva/Shin Goji double feature under the Godzilla x Evangelion label would have been the coolest thing ever. Maybe they can release a limited edition two-pack when both movies are out on bluray. :lol:

At the very least we know it's more than an April fool joke now.

I just hope that Godzilla doesn't screw with the Eva Rebuild canon till after 3+1 is released, or they start releasing new Evazilla content before this one comes out. Afterwards I would be down for Evazilla content, it would be pretty awesome to see.

Haha yup, huge fan of him and Porcupine Tree! The fic itself is actually influenced by that album and Pink Floyd's The Division Bell.

On topic though, I am hoping they release something soon but I won't be overly bothered if not. One thing I am wondering is when it does finally release is how long it'll take to make it to the west. It seems lately we've seen a much faster turnaround in this sort of thing. I suppose that's speculation for another topic though.

Everytime I come here, and I see the rebuild forum lit up. I hope against all hope that maybe, a sneak peek or a trailer has dropped.

and everytime my hope is crushed. Just like Shinji's in 3.33.

It should be faster than 3.0 was at any rate. On a podcast, the Funi reps attributed that delay in part to changes to their distribution methods (as well as the redubs and Khara subs, of course). Their first theatrical screening took only a couple months.

Yeah Ray, you seem to be investing and projecting a LOT on Shinji's fate in Evangelion. Maybe a bit too much. Don't get me wrong, I want Shinji to succeed as much as you do, but it's not like my life's priority.

And, nobody said that you had to depend on Rebuild to decide Shinji's fate. So what if Anno created Evangelion, you can still make Evangelion what you want it to be, that's why we have so many fanfictions. They're all viable stories in their own right. Anno may have created the idea, but we as well can bring these stories to life just as much as he does. It's like how there's so many authors of Batman. Bob Kane may have created Batman, but does that invalidate the various interpretations of Batman?

I don't think so. :) Maybe you need to take a break from Evangelion Ray. Try looking at more hopeful animes, like Toradora or something along those lines. Just because they're more "softer" than Eva doesn't make them less "realistic". Have we become so accustomed to the idea that "realism" is gritty and painful?

Joy and happiness are just as 'real' as that, so I think people think of Pain as "realistic" because it lingers a bit more, but joy and happiness is just as powerful.

Pain teaches us to fight for our lives, but joy reminds us why we fight in the first place. ^_^

@Ray

I don't have any "happy" anime to recommend to you, but I can recommend VERY good Demon's Soul fanfic. It's dark, it's bleak and protagonists is flawed and often acts... unsightly. Actually he have a lot common element's with Shinji. But it doesn't feel forced or spiteful. When things get fucked up, it feels real and when the hopeful moments actually shine, it's so heartwarming that you can practically melt from joy.

If you want to check it out, I can link you. I won't spoil you, but I can tell you, that this fic actually feels more hopefull than Eva ever was. This is probably wrong thread for that, but if you really want to read a story, where there is a light in the darkness, I whole heartadly recommend it.
