Yes, the official site has them both.

Frankly I think it's just a case of Anno & Khara will release info regarding the film when they feel ready for it & right now they aren't willing to share anything.

So if you aren't willing to share information, you decide to pull something out anyways just to taunt fans for shits and giggles? If you aren't ready, you aren't ready. Just show the next time preview from 3.33 and be done with it, but don't be like "Well, there's something for you, but we're not even going to bother to give you a proper explanation of it." It's literally a middle finger to anybody that was expecting more than just a redone title, and if you say they shouldn't have expectations, then Anno/Khara shouldn't have even bothered doing updated next time previews every NTV showing in the first place.

People may hate the "Anno is a troll and he's doing this for fun" card, but the "Anno is an expert and everything he does is right" card is equally frustrating.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

I don't regret getting excited about it one bit. It was fun, and honestly, if you weren't aware of the possibility of something like this happening, you haven't been paying attention. After the Funimation delay, this is a pretty minor disappointment. If anything, I hope Anno keeps the veil of secrecy in place right up to the release. Do they have the guts to forgo "traditional" trailers altogether? Probably not, but I'd love to see that.

Actually TMB, I saw that post of yours, in fact it's part of what got me thinking this way. What I meant was, have we seen the two titles together on the same picture to indicate that they actually refer to the same film.

However, it occurred to me while writing this post to actually click on the thing that says "3.0 + 1.0" on the main page and yes, it goes to that page for Final. So that provides the link I was looking for, between the two.

Well, good thing I didn't hold that idea too closely.

I kinda hoped you were onto something, I admit. Mostly, I want 3.0+1.0/Final to be the end of Rebuild. But another part of me hopes Anno creates a new 26 episode series about the world of Q.

Exactly. It was really fun getting excited about it and speculating on what it might be. I don’t consider that a waste of time. We were just having fun. And I always held in the back of my mind the possibility of there not being a new preview. (Though I assumed that if that were the case, it would just be the old FINAL preview all over again. Even this title card is better than that, so I don’t even consider this a minor disappointment.)

Funimation’s delay of Q is the only aspect of NTE’s treatment I consider a true disappointment. And even then I got a first-print Japanese copy of the Blu-ray. So whereas I consider Funi’s delay a true disappointment, I don’t complain about it.

Aww...

Anyhow is this movie still FINAL? Or will 3.0+1.0 be next film before the last one?

So it seems highly likely that 3.0+1.0 is indeed FINAL. Maybe it’s the answer to the question mark that we saw in the initial announcements for NTE back in 2007.

Regardless of the title, everything will proceed according to the scenario. :gendoscheme:

The title is not something I'd worry too much about, guys. Since the latest update is 3.0 + 1.0, it's quite likely that'll be the final title as well. Final and that Coda sign were probably just working titles or placeholders.

At all the people saying how we shouldn't be getting our hopes up, the hype is really fun. Even if we do't wind up getting anything, hype is fun.

With so many people posting that they laughed when they saw what the "trailer" turned out to be... I'm starting to question the sanity of the people in this forum... :bigeyes:

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. :gendoscheme:

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.

My bet is on a New Years event. Though at this point anything is possible, heck they might just keep releasing rough artwork alone. Whatever the case may be it looks like this coming year is going to be interesting to say the least.

So will the home video release seriously be called 3.33+1.11?

Hmmm. "Kyuu" and "?" instead of Q and :|| were the naming scheme used back when they were supposed to be released as one feature (Each one half, or ?/FINAL being just the epilogue a la beach scene? Honestly wondering). I always thought the ? was intentional, as if saying "this is new, what now? You don't know. Uncharted territory" It used the same wording scheme as the other movie titles, too.

But I never knew about these "Tentative" and "Planned" captions before. That indicates there was no "original scrapped plan" as the urban legends claimed after the shock of watching Q for the first time - looks like Khara honestly hadn't mapped that part yet.
