Google Translate's app give me non useful translations:

"Continue, and the end."
"Non, and anti."
"Keenly making"


EDIT: official English version

The two vertical texts seem like vague philosophy. EDIT: lul, official english version didn't get the typographical attention :(

What's more interesting is they only update the main page and not the specific page: http://www.evangelion.co.jp/final.html

So no date, no real news, back to hibernation.

What I gathered from Minna No Eva Fan providing the text:



I'm sooo hyped right now!

Where's this official(??) English version from?

The error and the antithesis eh? Anyone up for some potentially futile but fun guesswork as to what that could be referring to?

@SSD: go on the offial site's mainpage and click ENGLISH on the low right.


MASSIVE FANWANKING WARNING:

I noticed that the image is composed by 5 big rectangles, so I checked the dimensions of the image and they are 1920x4039.
That "1920" was quite suspicious and I decided to do a simple "4039:5" to see if something would come out of this. Well 4039:5 is 808 (actually 807,8, but I rounded it up). So the image could be seen as 5 blocks of 1920x808, which casually turns out to be a classic 2.40:1 aspect ratio, the modern cinematic one used by Q.
I believe that this is the first scene of Shin Eva, with the camera going moving downwards mirroring the end of Q.

I won't change my mind until release date. :tongue:

EDIT: Just look at it, it's almost the same image seen on a mirror (or the opposite if you count the opposite amount of sky and earth).

SPOILER: Show
Image



EDIT2: fanwanking part 2

"that" is NGE
"THE END" is EoE
"NOT" is the first 3 movies
"ANTI" is Shin Eva?

It also can be rendered as "non" and "anti". Very poetic opposites for Japanese rendering!

If it really is the beginning scene of Shin, then it looks awesome, i mean i can almost imagine it, panning from the sky down (title was shown previously on a black background probably) and stops right where this image is, with Shinji, Asuka and Rei Q seen in the distance.

Normal people: Ah, but it's in production, it'll take one or two years more for it to be finished
Me: I DONT CARE I KNOW NOW THAT IT'S OFFICIALLY HAPPENING AAAAAAAAAA!

Normal people: It'll probably be a full year. Fuck!

Me: I've been here for these films since I was a young lad in 2006. Now that I'm an old man filled with regret a year is like tomorrow.

Old? Heh! I'm just glad that it looks likely that I'll live to see it.

Actually a nerdy shoutout to a line Ken Watanabe delivers in INCEPTION.

But, yes. This is VERY good news. News for the final film might not be regularly occurring - would be pleasantly surprised if we hear anything else before the end of 2017 - but I think we're finally past the point of "No news for years on end"

My heart almost stopped when I saw this poster on Eva Fan's website. It's like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert. I'm so excited! :w00t:
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!

They even finally took down Anno's over two-year-old letter about how he's going to take a break to make Shin Godzilla.

Excitement levels reaching maximum!!!!!!!!! Also if you're disappointed by this, of course we're at least a year away , there's been zero promotion since Godzilla. This is awesome because the promos are starting, which means trailers and and release dates are going to begin any time . This is the official start of the journey if you will.
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
