Khara ain’t stupid, they know that bad PR would be trouble for them as a company,

Delaying it again would be catastrophic from a PR point of view

If they delay it again, the trailer to announce that will be the same trailer of the previous delay but, instead of one last kiss, the song will be https://youtu.be/mML2fPec7xU

LOL Aeon Cinema has a total of 21 showtimes for Shin Eva on the first day alone, it's practically playing in all venues! The last show is on 17:00 so this is still with the lockdown business hour limitation! :w00t:

The user noted that this makes consecutive repeat viewings easier. (Also you may see the "175 minutes" runtime on the upper right corner, the extra 20 minutes is for cinema staffs to clean the venues and prepare for the next showing).

Dude, you're a goldmine when it comes to social media.

21 screenings? Man, they're really not holding back on Shin Eva. I can only imagine what the mood must be over there.

Oh, actually Megumi Ogata retweeted that one. But yeah, I do like sinking my teeth deep inside the JP Twitter side of things to see the activities surrounding the film over there, really makes me feel the festivity too LOL. :D

By the way Sagisu published yet another score tease and this time it's a strings-only version of Jikai Yokoku! He noted that he wrote the original song 2 hours before recording, 26 years ago (March 12, 1995).

Doesn’t surprise me.

Biggest release since last fall in Japan.

Almost 9 years of waiting.

People stuck in a lockdown for weeks, desperate to get out and enjoy things.

Completely predictable that it would crash websites! With less than 100% seats filled in a screening they are hot tickets right now

Shuichi Iseki:
"It's still early, but most likely there will be a parade of spoilers after the film's release on Twitter, so you shoild refrain from using it starting from March 8 if you don't want to get spoiled."

Hopefully, the majority of Japanese Twitter users will consistently use the #シンエヴァ tag and it'd make it much easier to avoid spoilers as you can mute keywords and hashtags.

Best of luck for everyone who's planning to stay unspoiled! :misato_itadakimasu:

A NEW version of Jikai Yokoku? I'm gonna curb my expectations and say it's gonna be just a bonus track for the OST.

Yeah it got me thinking too.

That "Peaceful Times" ahort was created because Sagisu was sad 3.0 was the last use of that song.

Obviously it could still show up in some form, but might just be for the OST.

Reminder though: the song did play over the Shinji-Asuka training montage in episode 9.

The sadness is starting to sink in that this is the final end at least of anno’s evangelion.

I’ve loved the wait as much as I’ve hated it

Yup. It's like that tweet someone reposted here from a Love Live(?) voice actress noting her "Ending Dilemma" where she was happy and willing to see the end but kind of sad it is so.

I feel similarly. I really hated waiting this long for Final, 3.0 was some damn cliffhanger that's for sure, but now we're possibly at the end of it all. I look forward to seeing whatever Anno makes next, I hope he makes another anime before he retires but even if it's all "Shin (Tokusatsu)" that'll be alright, especially if he sticks with Shiro Sagisu, the Shin Godzilla soundtrack is excellent. Shin Gamera would be pretty cool I guess.

I also hope they open the floodgates and try to make at least a couple shows with new directors at Khara within the next 5 years. The animator expo seemed like an experiment to build talent and see what ideas they could run with. The Dragon Dentist deserves a sequel.

And of course, one issue is we're now entering "stay the hell away from spoilers" mode. I feel like I knew the bit twist at the beginning of 3.0 before I watched it as well as some basic ideas of other stuff so I want to avoid that entirely this time.

Someone kindly worked out that upon release it will be

3533 days since it was announced that it will be released

That’s

9 years

2 months

And 9 days

And it’s a wonderful time to reference this news article

A promo footage for the NERV Special Affair Disaster Prevention app will be screened in select cinemas before Shin Eva begins, narrated by Koichi Yamadera (Kaji's VA).

The app has been gaining extreme popularity in Japan thanks to its handy UI and information accuracy, even non-Eva fans are using it, although I wonder if fans also appreciate the irony of a disaster prevention app being branded with NERV considering the unexpected turn of events in 3.0. :lol:

For those who don't know about it yet can read the history of its creation here.
