Another thing I'm wondering: Why is Beast Mode 02' from the third movie featured so prominently in some of these pictures? It was only in the actual movie for about 10 seconds.

Kaworu was in one episode of the show, and yet look at how popular he is. It's the same idea.

If it looks cool or if it's attractive for other reasons (perhaps literally?) people will latch onto it and produce a disproportionate amount of art for it.

Fanart and advertising materials are the only place where "it looks cool" is an acceptable explanation.

I still think Beast Mode 02's teeth look really goofy, though. They barely look like teeth at all.

Yeah-- they were a little too thin and pointy for my taste.

They're supposed to be saber-teeth.

I thought they looked like needles. Needle-teeth aren't as intimidating as sharp chompers.

They are if they're tightly packed together, but it looks like it should have big, heavy fangs and not thinner, delicate teeth.

You're right about the teeth being packed together-- I should have specified about the placement on 02.

Do you think that the fang design in Q served your purposes as to the chompers?

I'm sure somebody out there has teeth that look like that. Assuming you're referring to the 2.0 Beast Mode (since 3.0 version starts out with regular Eva teeth), they do say that she's abandoned human form and blah blah blah. I agree the teeth are stupid, but so is the whole idea of an Eva turning into an emaciated lizard-man covered in hair curlers.

I thought it was a pretty accurate description of what actually appeared onscreen!

That was true in Ha, but they look fine in Q. I mean, it's not like anything else about it was fine, but the teeth were not the problem.

Now, as for the calendar, do we know the identity of the other girl whos at the outdoor restaurant table with Sakura?

But, that doesn't make sense given the timeline.

I don't have a high res version of the pic at hand, but, if the girl looks like she could be in her early teens, it fits just fine.

She could just be young enough, I'd say. Her demeanour makes her look substantially younger than Sakura. Not that there's any actual evidence to support the suggestion!

I have a question. Did the 2012 Honda calender come out before or after 3.0's release? Because the 2012 one revealed Mari's new glasses design, Asuka's new duct tape plugsuit and a picture of Kaworu holding a spear. If it came out before 3.0 then these would count as hints for the next film.

I was just wondering if we should expect hints for FINAL with this new calender coming out next month.
