I would suggest caution -- it's Friday in Japan already.

I thought that since Anno announced that he'd be directing Godzilla last April 1st, and April 1st is the start of Japan's fiscal year, then the chances of it being an April Fools joke is significantly lower this time around, since it definitely wasn't a joke last April Fools.

It's April 1st over there & if I recall the Japanese love April Fools don't they?

(Or they just sneakily announced what that Animator Expo Special is going to be)

Confirmed to be a marketing ploy

I hope they release that artwork as a poster. I really want one!
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Apparently people who buy early tickets for Godzilla: Resurgence when they go on sale later this month will get a copy of the artwork.

But, they'll be pimping this out as a fun & ingenious marketing ploy. Personally I want a NERV Godzilla T-Shirt cause the logo is phenomenal! Plus Engrish!

In light of us fans getting a marketing ploy instead of a trailer, what would be the next best prediction for seeing the G-man advertised on the computer screen?

I'm trying to find the article where I read it, but I believe there is some kind of Shin Godzilla hype event coming up later this month.

I think Anno is doing some speech or Q&A on April 23rd when tickets for Godzilla start going on sale. Complete with a limited edition piece of the Godzilla Vs. Evangelion artwork.

Their might be something to come with that.

^I think that's the event I was looking for. There's also going to be some kind of exhibit at the Nico Nico Super Conference on the 29th: http://shin-godzilla.jp/news/news_160324_1.html

A Q&A? Lets hope it gives us some significant answers regarding GR and Final

Yeah, the thing on the 29th is what I was thinking about. Not sure if there will be a Q&A and even if there is I wouldn't expect any news on Final except "Please be patient." but there might be something new & cool Godzilla related.

Yeah, I wouldn't count on seeing or hearing anything Final related until some time after Godzilla's released. There's a small chance they could have a little tease or something attached to the movie, but do Japanese studios usually do that kind of thing?

^It would be nice if they had a new teaser trailer for Final before or after the movie.

It would be nice.... but if there isn't one don't let it affect your enjoyment (or displeasure) of Anno's newest film.

Don't worry. I think the chances of having anything FINAL related along the movie are so slim that it seems like a pipe dream ^_^ .

An odd choice of editing style, but interesting non the less. I find it to be very reminiscent of GGWAIT
