Have you seen Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars)?
I'm exactly as the characters are after eating something... :tongue:

Cryptic as always, probably going to keep everything under wraps as they did with Q... But well, better than nothing, now to see what fanwank theories are concocted here :nyao:

So, this poster basically confirms that Shin Eva will start right where Q ended, right?

I would say the poster insinuates the film might start right where 3.0 ends. I don't think it's safe to say it CONFIRMS anything.

By all accounts 3.0 was "confirmed" to have Kaji & a scene where all the pilots meet up together. Was not the case.

(Though I think the film opening up right after the end of 3.0 is very likely because it will be the first time in this film series that the three core pilots will be alone as a unit)

In the bottom right corner on the Japanese page it credits the poster as "イメージボード/串田達也" or "Image Board/Kushida Tatsuya".

Image Boards in animation production are often used in production to give a look and feel of the production, kind of like concept art. They could be from actual scenes in the script, or it could just be a tangent of one of the artists.

It should be noted that Kushida Tatsuya has been credited as the Art Director on all three Rebuild films.
He then played every song from 1993. The crowd applauded as he curtsied bashfully.

If people want to see more of Kushida's lovely fully painted imageboard they're in the 1.0 and 2.0 CRCs.

It should also be noted that he was responsible for the majority of the art used in Until You Come To Me, which is theorized to be using material from the discarded D Part of Q. This teaser pic might also be from those days.

The pic has 3.0+1.0 written on it so it's presumably made specifically for the final movie, I can't see why they would market the new movie with a 5+ years old image made for another movie.

Was Kaji ever featured in a single trailer or promo or even mentioned by anyone before the release? I think he was present only in the preview at the end of 2.0.

He was never featured in the marketing for 3.0. Fans are still debating if he's alive or dead in the time when 3.0 takes place. Presumably Final might answer that question.

But people stood by that teaser at the end of 2.0 being representative of the third film all the way up to release & were pissed when they film didn't deliver on the marketing. (Hint: 3.0 is a more challenging & better film than the one teased in the trailer at the end of 2.0 could have ever hoped to be) Some are still waiting on Donkey to be added to the cast.

The text isn't an actual part of the artwork. It's layered on top of the image, and could have been added in at any time. It's possible this art is a few years old. Despite being produced separately, I imagine lots of material for Final was being considered during the production of Q, and perhaps even rough drafted.

Isn't this arguing about it just for the sake of it? I mean they posted the artwork, the making of the artwork with the "pan down" and the image splitted in 5 full cinema frames and they were on all their socials with the hashtag #shineva.
Even if it's years old it's going to be in the movie in some form, either directly or thematically/similarly like the poster with the stars from Q, the promos were always true to the final product up until now.

Even if the image is 5 years old, it was deliberately selected to promote Shin Evangelion. The PAN DOWN is a strong hint for a shot in the movie, but what convinces me that it's going to be the opening shot is the fact that the movie is called 3.0+1+0. All the other movies had their own number (1.0, 2.0, 3.0.), and all of them started after some time elapsed. Granted, it was maybe a few days to a few weeks between 1.0 & 2.0, and a whopping 15 years between 2.0 & 3.0. But the fact that Shin Eva deliberately has 3.0 in its 3.0+1.0 name gives me the impression that it is going to be an addition to 3.0, e.g. connecting more directly with 3.0 than the previous movies did.

That's actually how I felt about your assertion that the image had to be new. I'm just playing devil's advocate and pointing out that there's no telling either way.

3.0 + 1.0 could be a pun on Neon Genesis, though I don't remember how much the team cared about the english name compared to Shin Seiki.

Well I think that the image being new is the most probable option, unless we want to believe that the movie originally had a pan up shot followed by basically the same scene as a pan down.

Which brings us full circle back to the unused D Part of Q, which it could be a remnant of. Again, no telling either way. Remember that 3.0 and Final were originally intended to be released together and go right into one another, so they were likely planned together too.

I feel like a somewhat truncated version of the D Part could possibly show up as the intro to 3.0+1.0 in place of a big action set piece like 2.0 and 3.0 had. Characters wandering the wastes, drop some exposition, end with the Wunder showing up for recovery, then cut to the title card and/or the meat of the story. Or maybe it could mirror 1.0 and start off with some fairly quiet drama interwoven with an attack of some sort going on elsewhere.
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!

Jo and Ha were essentially in four sections, but Q is only in three (and is that bit shorter). It was rumoured that a fourth section (hence "D") was started but dropped during production, and it is thought that the storyboards in Sagisu's "Petit Film" and much of the art in the short "until You come to me" come from that aborted section of Q. If the final film takes up from the end of Q, then it would in essence be a reworking of (maybe a fundamental change from - who knows?) that "missing" section.

Was it ever confirmed anywhere that the footage in Until You Come To Me wasn't just made up scenes that looked nice?

I don't think so, but I'm not sure. Is there even a statement about "Until You Come To Me" from the staff?

I think it would be pretty amazing if 3.0+1.0 would only consist of the "missing" D part from Q. Just the three children walking over the red wasteland for several days, trying to survive.
Giving the naming scheme, it would make sense... but I doubt that'll happen. :lol:
