So how long do you guys think it should take for an American distributor to pick up NGE? I am new to anime and have no idea what industry standards are.

That depends on how much money the Japanese ask for vs how much the US companies are prepared to pay (which is what led to the split licensing before), and even whether either of the old agreements is actually still in place (about which I am unclear, I admit).

I think we can all assume Funimation will release NGE on Bluray. With ADV for all intents & purposes dead - cue Matt Greenfield turning up with his old "My Live Action Evangelion movie series will be happening soon" - no one will be challenging Funimation for the series. It took Cowboy Bebop 2 years to go from a Japanese BD release in Japan to getting released in the states. As long as Khara doesn't want to be in charge of subtitles for NGE I imagine that's how long it would take to get NGE BD on shores here in the States. Hopefully the US BD release when it does happen will have a classier cover then a cheap CG Eva or a pin up of one of the female characters like the first 2 Rebuilds do.

Someone at Funimation right now is frothing at the mouth at the idea of releasing a SUPER Evangelion Boxset years from now with NGE, Death, EOE, the alternate versions of the films & all four Rebuild features in one box.

^Oh man, now that's marketing! Now all we need someone to make a gross-looking English version like they did with the EoE poster. Any idea on how long that mural is, lengthwise?

From what I understand, it's at the JR East http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinjuku_Station entrance, but I don't know anything about the size/etc.

Haha, nice one.

Seriously though, that is such a wonderful piece of advertising; a testament to the eternally cool style that is NGE. I've always thought it would be a great idea to make black shirts with the NGE title screens on them. Totally love stuff like this. ^_^

And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

The English Poster's font is so... scrubby! Not to mention the resolution.

Eternally cool indeed! The text rather than other visuals in Eva advertising always make the show seem more mysterious and sometimes frightening. The wall sure adds to the nostalgia that comes in the waiting for a re-release.

Japan HAS made shirts with the Eva titles on them, actually. I think usually white shirts with black text but might have been the other way around--mainly of the Japanese NGE episode titles.

Actually there is a better version of the translated EoE poster out there. I have this as my desktop picture.



Even today it gives me the creeps while looking at the dead bodies of Asuka, Misato and the others floating in primordial soup/LCL while Rei on the surface looking down on them and the Moon shining over them. This represents EoE absolutly. Too bad this picture isn't the main picture for the home video releases. This fits more than the current one.

Ah, thanks! I had a strange feeling there was another one, guess I was too lazy to look (it is a little nicer too). On a stab a the topic, wouldn't it be neat if they started to use the original movie posters as part of the campaign for the re-releases? The quote wall is good for now though.

I thought the BD case could transform when I first saw that.

Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996
