As I said before, if they are going to announce the release date of the new movie it would be one year in advance so that they can work fans' expectation and lay out the merchandise and event schedule to build momentum. Now the announcement is made and as expected it is one year from now.

And the trailer is supposed to be a new footage.

I never thought I would come back to Evangelion after EoE,
But I discovered Re-Take (or it found me?) and
now here I am.

Welp, my day just got 10 times better. This is awesome. Sure, we have another year to wait (till it even shows in theatres, then we need to wait for the dvd and even then for the movie to be subbed), but besides all that this is great. I really liked 2.0 (IMO, it was great), and this teaser gives me even more hope than I already had for 3.0.

Pirate!Asuka seems even more badass than I originally thought she'd be.

Also, this was posted on /m/. I think you guys might be interested Image

YAY, news, finally! It's still one hell of a wait, but at least there's an approaching time frame we can look forward to, it's not limbo anymore.

I'm so hapyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyh

:asuka_happy:

The sequence itself is probably meant to get the butthurt Asuka fans to keep watching rebuild. Looks like she will be doing something to do her epic looking suit justice. I said, my impression of it was that it looked "war like". She even discards a helmet in the frevor of battle, it's so cool.
And, mysterious as ever, they did not quite reveal what she was shooting at...
The CGI still looks a tad raw (they still have time to correct that) but even so, the scene looks very promising.
I never thought they could Top the EoE Eva Series battle in terms of fluid, biological animation (just looks at how Asuka's hair flows!) and then they gave me Mari and Rei vs Zeruel.
Looks like they have topped themselves once again: This very dynamic perspective following the EVA, the panorama shot of space and the earth,
Asuka's fluid full-body movement which conveys the intense emotions of a warrior... and hair spilling out from under a helmet. I've a fetish for that ever since I saw Elfen Lied. Double points for it being red hair. Mari's was tied up, so it couldn't really "spill out". But this Asuka, not Mari. It doesn't suit Asuka to fight with her face hidden, so the helmet has to go in mid-battle. I think this says a lot about their personalities.
It's also very Asuka-like for her and her fancy production model to get the battle which requires the cool hightech equiptment. The ace-ish spinning-move is also very much her fighting style.

As for the battle itself, I'd say that it takes place before Shinji's awakening. I imagine it like this: - the NERV ppl are captured, an Angel attacks, forcing SEELE to release them. Asuka gets put in charge of killing the Angel so they can recover Shinji... It might even involve an EoE-like awakening scene.
Either way, look at her: She seems to have been wearing a helmet, and... isn't this our positron riffle there? Seems like Rebuild!Misato didn't return it, either. The "helmet" is probably the EVA-02-version of the aiming headgear. Unique versions, just like with the entry plugs.
Seems like this time, they *do* have a way to get an EVA into Orbit. This might be Asuka taking Revenge on Arael, if only in a meta-way. XD

In any case, this trailer, as short as it is, should at least have cleaned up the following questions:

a) The Oceans are INDEED all red.
b) Shinji will not spend the majority of the movie liquified - the text mentions his awakening as the very first thing
c) We'll be getting our Kaworu!
d) They did indeed patch EVA 02 back together and Asuka will keep piloting it.

I'm glad that many of my assumptions got confirmed

it would be awesome if Asuka gets to fight kaworu and squash that vermin like a bug !! i mean look at the shot, they distinctively cast her eva against the moon,there must be a meaning to that.

Also note the cockpit seat is diferent as well.

Except Kaworu should be on earth, near Shinji... It would be more awesome if she's transformed into a Eva-human synthesis like in Anima, this is an event that played on the moon in that continuity.

To be fair a lot of use pro-gay people (or even bisexual, like myself) are tired of the much desired rants about how Eva should be Shinji & Kaworu proclaiming their undying love for each other & making sweet sweet sex

There's not much of anti-gay sentiments here on EGF, actually Draconis is really a rare breed.
Anyway I'd gladly join them for real, but I was imagining a different scenario, something like the lake of episode 24, for the awakening of Shinji.

Sorry but it's just a pairing like others, with some hints in the plot, on top of that.

Personally, I'm for Misato x Sensei, and if you're against it, you are so totally ageist.

Misato x Sensei too, she replaced him in the alternate universe so it's implied, "They've become one".

Plus, we all know who Sensei reminds us of. :naughty:


On another note, shouldn't more of the new EVA 3.0 topics fall into this one? I'm personally getting a bit disoriented as to which thread I'm on, whether it be one of the two speculation threads of 3.0 or one of the two/three threads about the preview.

Nothing against it.

It's slightly less consistent than Shinji blushing continuously near Kaworu imo, but it's still a sustainable hypothesis, especially because of:

I agree, there's really some confusion.

If there is going to be any homosexuality in Rebuild it needs to be between Mari and Asuka.

I'm still holding my breath for Toji topping Shinji. I don't care how little sense that makes, what with Shinji having goo sex with Rei, and Toji having even less relevance than before. A man should become a man by having another man inside him.
"Now, from Nature we obtain abundant information about ourselves, and precious little about others. About the woman you clasp in your arms, can you say with certainty that she does not feign pleasure? About the woman you mistreat, are you quite sure that from abuse she does not derive some obscure and lascivious satisfaction? Let us confine ourselves to simple evidence: through thoughtfulness, gentleness, concern for the feelings of others we saddle our own pleasure with restrictions, and make this sacrifice to obtain a doubtful result." -The Divine Marquis

As awesome as it is to discover Gendo'sPapa is a fellow bisexual, this thread's getting horribly off-topic. If you want to discuss shipping, do it in another thread like this one: http://forum.evageeks.org/viewtopic.php?t=6933 (Ignore the fact that thread started during 2.0 trailer "let's speculate the hell out of everything" days.)

C'mon, you guys should know better than this with getting off-topic.

All I've gotta say is: "Well, it's about goddamn time!"

Now for the inevitable slow-trickle-of-information-style waiting...

And somehow, I just KNEW the Asuka-fan backlash against 2.0 would signal her getting more screen-time/awesome moments in 3.0. Glad to see that was a correct wager.
