List of future promotional events?

Postby Kvanu » Wed Jun 22, 2016 7:25 am

I'm trying to put together a list of future Anno/Khara events that could be used to promote Final. (This keeps me sane, ok.) I know Godzilla is coming out July 29 and there's a decent possiblity we'll get SOMETHING Final related, but in case we don't, I can feel secure knowing there's other opportunities out there.

My list goes something like this:

    - Godzilla premiere (July 29)
    - Lantern festival (August 7-8)
    - Khara's 10th anniversary expo (Nov 23-30)
    - Upcoming Honda calendar [sometime in November]

And yes I'm aware that there's a chance that a Final promotional or preview could be released at random when everyone least expects it. But what I'm looking for are other events that could lead to a preview, if they exist and this list isn't already it. And if this list is really it then it seems this Fall is going to be really interesting.

I think associating any information on the final Evangelion film with Godzilla marketing is extremely unlikely at this stage - it would simply dilute the hype for the film which is actually being marketed at the point of its release. (The April 1st things were far enough away from Godzilla's release for that not to matter.)

You would think so, but that's not how it's playing out. The sheer amount of Godzilla x Eva merchandise that's been released so far (Evazilla keychains, Tower Rising Evazilla Line mobile game, Cine Mileage Evazilla illustration cards, Zippo2 Evazilla lighters, Nowak Evazilla steaks, Rockin Jellybean Evazilla cards, Amemiya's Evazilla posters, Kaida's Evazilla posters, Pikatore's Evazilla stamps, Million Arthur's Evazilla CM, Evastore Evazilla towels, Evastore Evazilla stickers, the Evazilla chibis on Godzilla's website, the Evazilla jigsaw puzzle, and all those Evazilla figures, just to name a few) makes me think otherwise.

I feel like Khara's expo has the best chance of something Eva related out of the events we know about. If Anno makes any laterns for the festival this year, they'll probably Godzilla-themed since the festival is just a week after Resurgence's opening.
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!

It's safe to say that we probably wont get any big news on Final until near the end of the year (if we get any this year at all) since he'll probably take a short break after Godzilla.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

It all depends on how much they've done while he's been playing in Godzilla land, I suppose. That lucky devil! :lol: The new hiring call for animators/vfx wraps up on the 30th, so who knows what they're up to now. *shrug*

Was there some other event they'd announced for this fall? It seemed like they'd announced one more but I can't think of anything else except for the Animator Expo special presentation, and that almost certainly won't be Eva related at all.
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!

So... Now that it's well into the 29th in Japan, I take it that the hopes of a teaser for Final accompanying Shin Gojira are out the window?

Reading Google translated Twitter posts regarding Shin Gojira, it's hard to tell if they've actually seen it yet or if they're just excited to be seeing it later today. The earliest showtime I've found for Shin Gojira (at least in HUMAX Cinema theaters) is 20:00 (It's 20:13 there as of writing this), but the website might just be omitting earlier showtimes that have already passed...

In any case, by ~22:00 when the 20:00 showing ends, we should know one way or another if there was anything Eva-related.

With Anno apologizing to Eva fans, it seems like there isn't much to show right now
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

I don't think they've done shit, i mean anno will probably arrive, see the script and rewrite it like he always do, so i expect at least a teaser to arrive next year and if we're lucky 3.0 + 1.0 in 2018.

I have updated the original post and will rehash it here.

What's left is the Khara Expo this November. I believe we have good reason to hope that something Final related will be shown at the end of this event. Why?

    - Honda is releasing an Evangelion calendar during November, and historically, nuggests for the upcoming movie have been previewed in calendars (Mari's glasses, Asuka's eyepatch)
    - 3.0 came out during November
    - The deadline for Khara's last animator hiring batch has long past
    - It's Khara's 10th Anniversay; what better way to celebrate
    - Godzilla is over

I could be wrong of course but it never hurts to hope.

It certainly seems like a good time to start the 3.0+1.0 hype train for Khara, but as the past 4 years have demonstrated, we should not be expecting anything unless told otherwise.

Since in 2016 clearly nothing happened what about 2017? As far as I know those are possible dates for a Final related announcement:

- March 10th. The special re run of NGE on NHK ends with episode 26 on that day. After every episode they run a small special called "Evanashi" in which they interview famous japanes actors and ask them about their relationship with Evangelion. Maybe something can come out of this but I don't know how likely it is since the episode airs at 23:45 so it's a late hour.
- July 19th. 20 years after the release date of EoE.
- September 1st. 10 years after 1.0.

I don't know any other significant event or date for this year.

There's April 1st too. It's the start of Japan's fiscal year and a lot of studios announce new and upcoming projects then. There's also usually an update on evangelion.co.jp.
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!

Okay thanks to the last two posts those are possible hot dates to look forward for future disappointment. :lol:

Don't forget the lantern festival! :tongue: That's usually the first or second week of August.

Yep! Anno's done drawings of Unit 08 (the first official reveal of its design), Unit 02's new head design, awakened Unit 01, and one that just said "Evangelion 3.0+1.0 etc." The last couple years haven't been Eva related though. One was for The Wind Rises, one Shin Godzilla, and the most recent one just a message of gratitude.

Oh cool, I didn't know that. I checked the festival on Google and I also found old articles with Eva related stuff on those lanterns and it seems like they are going to appear during 7th-9th August.

- March 10th. The special re run of NGE on NHK ends with episode 26 on that day. After every episode they run a small special called "Evanashi" in which they interview famous japanes actors and ask them about their relationship with Evangelion. Maybe something can come out of this but I don't know how likely it is since the episode airs at 23:45 so it's a late hour.
- April 1st. Usual date for announcements in Japan due to the start of the fiscal year.
- July 19th. 20 years after the release date of EoE.
- August 7th-9th. Lantern festival.
- September 1st. 10 years after 1.0.
- November 12th. 5 years after Q.

Six dates now.
