^ That would make the most sense for me. I'm more wondering about the potentiality for live-action materials used in Shin Eva.

I don't actually remember theorizing that. My current brain says that'd be silly and too much of a retrace of EoE.

The first thing I thought of for both flashlight videos is they're making a new Khara logo. That kinda of mundane stuff you can post no twitter no problem and then watch people lose their shit over it for no good reason.

Well, with no news for a long period of time, even mentioning Final gets the entire fandom foaming at the mouth for more. And I'm sire that even though Final won't be a "retrace" of EoE, I'm sure there will be some homages to it in the final product.

A new logo would make a lot of sense. The current one is 10+ years old. That or reference footage for some effect. Didn't they have reference footage for Shinji and Kaworu's piano duet?

Live action stuff actually in the movie woukd feel jarringly out of place to me. The films have been really light on that kind of existential mindfuckery so I can't help but feel that it would be really strange to include it now.
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!

Maybe. I remember Eva Jo going into the mindfuckery a lot sooner than NGE did (complete with Hell Trains and Shinji getting all introspective in the film's climax), but Eva Ha was so light on it that almost counteracts it.

I don't think live action footage would feel out of place. As long as the cinematic style is the same, I think it doesn't matter if it's not animated.
I also don't think the liveaction footage was a gimmick in EoE, so I think the fact that it was done already doesn't matter. It was very poetic, and would probably be just as beautiful here.
I also don't agree that the films aren't as existential. I think they are progressively building towards it, and any weirdness is allowed in my eyes as long as it is a cohesive symbol, imo 3.0 was like that, it's almost Utena-like.
In any case, I doubt this will only be traditionally animated, Anno likes playing with the medium too much, and he always finds a way to relate that stuff to the themes (now that I think about it, the live action stuff could still fit signifying that this is an anime about real life).

Anyways, I'm probably 100% wrong and the movie will not at all be what any of us expect.

Also, do any of you get extra-salty whenever you get a notification from this twitter-account (if you have notifications on for it) and it isn't something really big?
I do. I mean, I also love what we are getting, but...damn I've never been this thirsty for a peace of media in my life lol.

Thankfully I remember more clearly now (sorry if I mixed you up with other poster :sweatdrop: ), it was about how the final act within JoHaKyu = full of "song and dance" which could mean utilizing live action footage/effects for the final battle, among other things.

I definitely think something as 'simple' as a new Khara logo would make sense, especially for potential other projects lined up once Shin Eva's complete. Though, I don't think live action footage would be out of place, all depending how its implemented. (The sex footage mixed in the animation near the end of Komm Susser Tod was excellent mindfuckery. And the live action sequence proper was a perfect visual representation of Instrumentality/another world.)

I have no idea, but this is getting me excited.
They are up to sumthin.

Also, that's Kazuya Tsurumaki, right (the one on the right)?

Yes that's Tsurumaki (not the dog).



Utada Hikaru's new album "Hatsukoi" will be out on June 27th, I wonder if it'll include Shin Eva's credits song.

I'm guessing it would be a single (I think that was always the case the other times).
But who knows, we might get some news till june.

Didn’t they update the official Evangelion website with the new poster on the one year anniversary of Shin Godzilla’s release? Could see them keeping that up this July 29th.
