Maybe it's because I have other entertainment right now, or the fact that it's been almost eight years since the last "release date" we've gotten for this movie but I'm not very hyped right now. Maybe it'll change when we get closer to release and get maybe one or two more trailers but I'm just not feeling it right now.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

I meant to say on top of that; there were a lot of container towers there, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of there being enough spare parts to still have a JA unit as backup
Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

Well, that would give ReiQ something to do. :D

If only she were so lucky. Rei 2 lets us know in Ha that she can't live without access to her capsule, and since Rei Q is a similar "model", presumably the same holds for her. UYCTM has a mysterious shot of Rei's hand crumbling apart, which might be a faintly disguised way of showing "Rei falls apart if she's away from her facilities for too long". So she will probably end up back at Nerv HQ and roped into helping out with Final Impact with a strategically delivered Fuyutsuki Exposition Dump.

SPOILER: Show
But imagine if Hikari, Kensuke, and Toji all get to be JA-2 pilots...

Nah, it'd be better if they remained non-combat support personnel. As much as anime likes to emphasize the badassitude of mecha pilots and battleship crews, they wouldn't be able to do their jobs without the non-coms doing their own jobs behind the scenes to get the rations, ammo and spare parts where they need to be. Hikari already has the motivational skills to get other people off their asses, Toji ditto but with more emphasis on empathy rather than authority (AKA the Father-To-His-Men command style), Kensuke being able to remember all the stuff regarding his hobby of military gear indicates to me that he's got the attention to details to do stuff like logistics and inventory juggling.

They can very much earn their keep in WILLE without being on the frontline, methinks.

You know? I like this idea. I hope we also find out what, if anything, our favorite waterer of melons has been doing.

Not surprising. Even if someone is a fan of an artist or series most excitement for new films or TV shows is created in audiences through marketing. Controlled ad placement, posters, TV spots, etc. A key reason the Marvel universe is so successful right now is the mega-franchise is always in a state of marketing the next installment to the audience.

Aside from two trailers and an extensive showcase from almost a year ago the marketing for 3.0+1.0 has been next to nothing. Even the poster is just an image of the Eiffel Tower and there haven’t been any leaks cause Khara runs a tight ship and nary a tease since, what, Summer 2019? With the amount of new entertainment always being put out this reaction is not unexpected.

Once Khara starts gearing up actual marketing what ever that will be - I’m still blown away how effectively the marketing for 3.0 hid the entire film - anticipation will drastically increase amongst even the most casual fans.

I don’t know anything about the Doraemom or Crayon Shin-Chan series but I know they’re huge in Japan and they both have new Toho produced movies coming out very soon - March 6 & April 24 respectively - so perhaps those will be when a new and final round of marketing for Eva starts up.

∆ Those two franchises are actually huge in Spain. If they are huge here, they must be blockbusters in Japan, and yeah, it would make total sense for them to be accompanied by Eva trailers (unless the trailers are meant to have some sort of shocking/violent content).

With 3.0 there wasn't a trailer till like two months before the film, but since that rule has already been broken for Shin...

Well, the teasers of Shin until now ain't got nothing of shocking violent. Also yeah the new deal with Toho has changed the way of doing trailers for Khara
