I mean, there was that public statement from Anno that Eva Q had crushed his soul, and the announcement of his Shin Godzilla movie a few years prior to that.
PM me if you want specific spoilers for Shin Eva 3.0+1.0, but don't want the whole movie spoiled for you!

That requires a lot of inference and assumption to piece together something that they really should’ve just been clear and upfront about. If you don’t actively follow Eva news (which I didn’t at the time) this isn’t something you’re going to pick up on.

A headline in 2013-2014 “Eva 3.0+1.0 on hiatus until further notice” followed by another one in 2017 “Khara officially kicks off production on Eva 3.0+1.0” would’ve done a lot to quell people’s worries about the project, especially when the prevailing belief among casual fans (e.g. most of the general audience) is still that the movie was actively being worked on for 9 whole years.

To me, the main thing is: if you get asked to do a Godzilla movie, you do the Godzilla movie, even if you need to put other stuff on hiatus. The opportunity to make Shin Godzilla may have never come again, so I don't blame him for jumping on it.

And it ended up working in everyone's favor:
1. Anno finally regained his filmmaking mojo and finished Shin Eva. Now he has two critically and financially succesful films in a row with two more forthcoming hotly-anticipated films he written (Shin Ultraman) and directed (Shin Kamen Rider).

2. Godzilla becomes extremely popular again in Japan. Not saying it wasn't before, but its popularity was clearly declining in the 21st century that not even Legendary's Godzilla did much of a splash in terms of cultural impact like Shin did. Now Shin IS the franchise's poster boy in its home country.

LOL I still remember importing the ASOIAF boxset in 2012, it wasn't translated to Indonesian back then so I had to use nearly a year worth of saving to get that bad boy (I was still a high schooler) thinking it won't be long until Winter comes out. Oh, how wrong I was.

I guess. I do wonder if this is one of things that was more apparent to the Japanese audiences. I mean, Khara's international news on a worldwide release of Shin Eva has been non-existent so far. Imagine what their other news updates are like for us foreign folk. Not being in Japan, we kinda have to go out of our way to learn this stuff about the series.

As someone who avoids Twitter like the plague, all my anime news comes from people posting headlines on Reddit (not claiming that Reddit is much better... but hey, at least it’s not Twitter). If it’s not a big headline that would’ve been reported by Western anime news sites, it’s not something I would’ve seen.

I imagine it’s similar on the Japanese side: unless you’re a dedicated fan who’s actively seeking out news about everything Anno, Khara and Eva-related, you’re probably not going to pick up enough through information osmosis (and you’re probably not thinking about Shin Eva enough) to put the pieces together. You’re only going to hear the really big announcements like “Shin Eva delayed for the nth time” or, hypothetically, “Shin Eva put on indefinite hiatus til Anno feels ready to work on it again”.

It's not the creators fault if "anime journalism" is trash. Also most anime fans are what I define as "stupid" anyway so who cares about what they think really.

So, my chance finally ran out and I got spoiled in a general fanart thread in an unrelated forum, and what I learned made me break I checked the content of Shin, so you won't see me much more around this part of the forum for the time being.

I feel like I’m at the point where I’m just gonna forget about Eva and check this forum once a week to see if it’s dropped yet. Now that April’s come and an “immediate” streaming release seems to have been a pipe dream, thinking about it will only lead to more temptation... lol

I guess this is the same group of people that thought Kingdom hearts 3 took 14 years to make etc.

I don't really care if people don't do their research on these matters, there's more important things in life. It just bothers me when that group spreads misinformation based on their own ignorance.
I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

They obviously weren't working on the movie for the whole nine years cause that would be insanity! I personally think when all of the promotional touring and what not for Shin Godzilla finished, Khara started getting everything organized so they could start work on 3.0+1.0 at a moments notice but I could be wrong. Really looking forward to Shin Kamen Rider while we're still on that topic to an extent :D
