November Asuka is ridiculously emaciated and has a ridiculously high plumber's crack. Does it have something to do with the fact that popsicles seem to be the only food remaining after 3I?

Third Impact didn't happen in ANIMA!

Also I love tiny Leliel.

The Human Instrumentality Project happened, at least. Is it ever mentioned that the HIP = 3I anywhere other than EoE?

Not to create a tangential debate, but they're not equivalent. 3I is the "global catastrophe" part; HIP is the "souls getting scrunched together, etc." part. 3I is the means to HIP, although 3I could occur without HIP, and HIP could MAYBE occur without 3I (depends on whether or not liberating every soul in the biosphere is requisite, or if just human souls are needed for HIP; this was never really resolved, and we're not going to talk about it here, either).

August 2008: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=A0NXQP8U

Now the only issues that I have that aren't scanned are April and July 2008, expect those tomorrow. I decided to get these out of my system before exams because they just keep staring at me from the shelf. After that I still need to aquire December 2007 to March 2008 which contain the first 4 chapters.

Someone on 4chan came forward saying they can arrange for some translators, we'll see how that goes.

TMB_H, you're the best thing to happen to this forum since Zeak announced he was directing LAEM.

So looking through the chapters and this summary linked on the wiki, I've got a funny feeling the novel is mining at least a few ideas from a previous wacky Yamashita proposal. The Field Sinker and idea of NERV Japan jump primarily to mind.

EDIT: Fixed second link.

Huh, so in the world of ANIMA there was no 3I or HIP of any sort whatsoever? So it indeed doesn't take place after EoTV.

I GUESS IT'S NOT A DIRECT SEQUEL AT ALL, IS IT, STEVE?

EDIT:

July 2008: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4AN9UZ23

and now I've scanned all the issues that I have, still need to get my hands on the earlier few and that probably won't happen until December 11th. Time to study for finals.

Protip: In case you'd really want to archive these, using mediafire as an upload host would work. (I might host them on my account there; not sure yet.)

NAveryW: Well that's disappointing news. >_<

EDIT: And also, a site that has information about it is here: http://sites.google.com/site/i2kthought ... lion-anima

Seems like Ritsuko was KIA in a Nerv battle. :( I think it's implying Kaji died at some point too (though he was able to save Nerv from the JSSDF apparently). I guess Ritsuko/Maya fanservice would have been too much to ask for.

January 2008:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AGW4JOWE
http://www.sendspace.com/file/6zyuyd

January 2008 is the first proper chapter, I might pick up Nov+Dec 2007 with the short intros if I find them cheap.
Also got February 2008 and January 2009, but still missing March 2008.


EDIT:
February 2008:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3BPMIPUP
http://www.sendspace.com/file/ghflmy

And just to be sure, does me providing the raw fall under this?
Administrators also reserve the right to permit links to other copyrighted materials (such as media unavailable domestically) on a case-by-case basis.

Or am I just waiting for a boot?
Also would it be allowed to transcribe the Japanese ANIMA text to the wiki here? I'm also guessing that links to actual scanlations of this if it were to happen would be a no-no.
Did I miss anything else about the rules here?


EDIT 2:
January 2009:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DQ62NUXF
http://www.sendspace.com/file/rmkfp8

Noticed something in this chapter that made me go D:
It has yet more lineart of 0・0Eva Quatre, but this time it has one of those enigma/puzzle parts (謎のパーツ) stuck in its chest. I went back to the December 2008 chapter and the pic of the two evas fighting, and there it was! Don't know how I missed it even though I spent a good deal of time fixing that pic.

Short pic summary if you're lost:

Image
0・0Eva at the time of rollout on top, 0・0Eva Quatre customizations/"transfiguration" on the bottom (カトル機の変貌). December 2008 issue.

Image
Updated lineart of Quatre machine from January 2009, note the chest.

Image
Menacing looking picture of enigma/puzzle/riddle parts from November 2008.

Image
Fight from December 2008, again note the chest.

Now I want to know wtf is going on more than ever :\

As long as you're not hotlinking any images, I don't believe you're breaking any rules by posting this (especially since Anima isn't really available outside of Japan).

It would be kinda interesting if you and RockManBalls could somehow collaborate on Anima...

After spending the whole day messing with the OCR program, then manually checking over every character, the Japanese version of the first chapter is up in the wiki.

http://evageeks.org/FGP/Evangelion_Anima_2008_01

I'm about 99.9% sure that everything is correct, but I'd still advise to use the scans as the primary source if you're translating.

Or you can just run that through babelfish for shits and giggles.

EDIT: Was so tired yesterday that I completely forgot to thank Eric_Blair from the irc channel for recommending the OCR program and making it work.

You... you are some kind of crazy awesome. Has anyone come forward offering to translate? I'm becoming more and more tempted...

I thought the Evageeks wiki is supposed to have stuff in English only? No matter, though, I'm sure somebody would get to translating that. And yes, Eric is just plain awesome. :leekspin:

Rockmanballs: You should if you're interested.

It is, really. The Japanese is only included as a supplement, so that translations can be checked by anyone who's into that kind of thing.

However, since having a translation of Anima would kick so many kinds of ass, you can perhaps mark these kinds of pages with a huge disclaimer to that effect. "OCR'd text put online with the hopes of luring a translator, since this thing is obviously never going to be officially translated and blah blah blah... BTW, please don't sue us."

That would be super-sweeeeet. But, you would finish the movie scenario(s) and the Classified Info revisions first, right? ;_;

There's an "enigma part" lodged in Eva Quatre's chest. See the "enigma part" image -- it's the black and red thing with the white aura around it.
