I'm a bit pleased that my prediction that we'll see something and be told nothing did come true. I'm also noticing that there are now small bits of info being released that are creating ripples amongst the fandom, and these ripples will only get larger as we go ever forward. I mean, does anyone believe that picture Yamashita tweeted
just happened to contain his copy of what looks like the production notes? This is all part of their plan.
So, when can we expect any other news, if there is any? In the next four months there are three events that have the potential to be the bearer of good news:
1. The Anno Retrospective
that will be held at the Tokyo International Film Festival at the end of October. The event will be screening his works, the Rebuild movies among them. What better place to put a trailer for the final film than after when 3.0 is shown on the big screen at one of the world's major film festivals at an event dedicated to Anno's work.
2. When the final volume of Sadamoto's manga is released on November 20.
3. New Years day when it is very likely we'll get a card that contains some information such as the one for 3.0 that came out in 2012. It will probably be the international title for the film "You Can (Not) Thisthatortheotherthing."
I know this is all educated speculation at best, but I thought I should share this for the people who were disappointed.
