I will have accumulated an undergrad and two master's degrees in the time between the two movies. Hell, I was in high school when 1.0 was new, and it's my ten year reunion in June.
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

The entirety of the Hobbit trilogy came out between 3.0 and FINAL, including physical release.

With Anno telling them "no, they will be highly disappointed when you tell them Final comes out in Summer 2019"

Please don't tell horror stories like this.

I wouldn't say I mind the release date, it's gonna happen the way it happens.
But a part of me wants it to be sooner rather than later.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

I can wait my whole damn life for FINAL to come out. And when it does, I'll vomit all my anger and disgust out, that I have pent up in myself in all those years from watching 3.0. Nothing can downplay anyones actions that were committed there. They gonna bite their own bullets.

Unfortunately it's well within the realm of possibility. I wouldn't be surprised at a spring/summer 2019 release. We've already had our first official teaser poster and the new Eva design at the festival last year so we're getting close. The first stuff for 3.0 started showing up around a year and a half beforehand and then they dropped the date out of the blue during Eva Extra 08 which was in July 2012, iirc.

Of course, the marketing campaign for 3.0 doesn't necessarily reflect what'll happen here. Khara seems to have a stronger social media presence and it certainly did not have a second unit dropping teasers back then. :tongue:
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!

I mean if we're talking about how long this series has taken just think that when Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone was released Tobey Maguire was Spider-man.*
We've gone through a couple Spider-men (too many Spider-men) since this series began.

*Not to mention the Marvel Cinematic Universe - going on its 20th movie - hadn't even started yet.

All its missing is a campfire and a flashlight, amiright?

And the tweet from the editing room, upon further thinking, may be an official trailer they're going over for when they announce the release date.

I just find it reassuring that there's content to edit. ^_^ That makes me wonder if they'll drop their initial teaser stuff/trailer on this account or if they have other media deals worked out as part of their licensing.

Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to start another thread to address this topic. Sachi just gave a warning about it a couple posts ago.

Between 2 and 3 years for each movie according to some CRC interviews and the video for the 10th anniversary of khara. So, assuming the same will be true for the final movie, we should see the movie either this year or early next year.

That's the opposite of a horror story, thank you.

Development time varied it seems. 2.0 apparently take 1.5 years? Although maybe they started before 1.0 released. And EoE (I know, different "era") took about 1 year.

What I like most about this twitter account is that it shows a certain openness. When we do get trailers, the film, even the blu-ray, I'm sure behind the scenes stuff will be given in little tidbits.

^ It is interesting that they set up a secondary account for Khara, considering they have one already, and while openness is one part of that, and this will sound a little nuts, maybe Anno is the person in control of the @khara_inc2 account, and is the only person able to edit it. It would explain the "intimate" behind the scenes stuff we're getting, and he would e making the decisions on what information to release anyway, so maybe he made it his responsibility.

I don't think it's him, because apparently he's kinda bad at English.
But I believe it's somebody he trusts a lot.

Imo the reason this second account exists is that while we (eva geeks) eat this stuff up, maybe some more casual fans follow the main account and wouldn't enjoy some of these tweets. So it's just to cater to a different type of fan maybe.

^ That makes a lot of sense. Still though, it is smart of them to have an account to cater to us evageeks, as it'll keeps all engaged and up to date on Final's production. Once an official announcement is made, I'm sure we'll get a lot more stuff from that account.

Well, all the other accounts are for official announcements, so it makes sense to have your own account for more casual fan-catering. I don't think it's Anno's account per se, but I would be shocked, if they posted anything Final him without asking him first....

In some of khara2's tweets Anno is called "Director", so either he's not him who posts on it or he's like Caesar and writes about himself in third person.

khara2 doesn't speak english, they use Google Translate when they tweet in english (or at least that's what they did last year for a question I've asked them).

Yeah, this one definitely seems more fan interaction-oriented than the official khara and Evangelion twitter accounts. Earlier they were retweeting pictures of penguins dressed as Penpen and gushing about how cute they are. :lol:

I kind doubt Anno himself is the one running the account but I'm sure they get his permission to post stuff. Heck, they've posted pictures of him before.
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!
