Oh man, of course the leak party started without me. Real Life is truly a hassle one needs to overcome, lol.
This character chart is really bizarre. Toji, Hikari, Kensuke, Asuka, Shinji, and Rei's annotations are formatted in a uniform, in-line shape, but the characters that follow Rei to the right have their names/heights positioned haphazardly. Some characters look as though they aren't provided corresponding heights. Makes me think the characters that follow Rei are nameless grunts, but then, why would they take up space with Shinji et al?
I maybe the cast-chart is tentative? The tweet mentions something about this being two years old at this point?
The Japanese the Twitterer is using is just too advanced for me to really make sense of them.
(Also, because the introductions thread is locked, hello! Hi. Some of you may know me. I decided to join today.)
Hello, nice to see you
I personally don't care that much, if it's an intentional marketing move to gauge the impact of a calculated "leak" on social media, or a rookie mistake leveraged for marketing after recognizing they won't be able to cover it up any longer anyways. Given how tight their information control was up until now (remember how nobody so Q coming?) I kinda doubt it was a mishap.
Just consider: They brought attention to the tweet with two follow ups before deleting it. Also, it's just obscured enough to not give anything concrete away, besides the fact that, yeah. There are designs for characters who weren't confirmed dead yet. Either way, I'm glad that the hype train will slowly start moving now. Choo Choo.
These posts are probably (low-wage/unpaid) inters supporting the production anyway they’re told. (Incidents like this leak could be the reason why Eva Q wasn’t marketed similarly
I doubt Anno didn't notice an account active on Insta and Twitter for more than a year with the name Khara in it, posting pics from production meetings Anno was present for of all places.
still see Kaji and even Pen Pen, or not?
I'd love to see a 14 year older and wiser roughened up Pen Pen ♥
