Maybe they're waiting on the series' completion before continuing the CRC. That way, they won't have to second guess every comment being a potential spoiler, and can speak freely. I imagine quite a lot of Q's conception ties into Final.

I feel like EoE's millisecond flash of hate mail has given Eva fandom a big head. Since then, we assume EVERYTHING Anno does is with an eye towards needling the fans. It's solipsism, constantly thinking, "Oh God, oh God, is that about US? Is he saying fuck off to US?" The man certa...

I don't think Asuka would remember her 2.0 experience as being all that carefree. Or Shinji. Or Rei. Misato? Uh...

Gendo. Gendo is carefree at the end of 2.0, that's true.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the idea that the "original" Q was scrapped is complete fan speculation, right? Until we hear something supporting that idea directly from those involved, I think it's better to take things at face value. It would be weird to not mention it at all in th...

How could a new preview have told us that?

Well in any event, a "proper" preview would spoil things for da noobz, so I'm glad there isn't one. Has Anno no shame? He shouldn't have any! Whether it's a red herring designed to make Q all the more shocking, a glimpse of events between films, or the groundwork for an &qu...

It's better to preserve the surprising elements of Q for viewers who aren't aware of it, IMO. The original preview may even be an intentional misdirect with that in mind.

If the whole "fan fiction" angle is to be seen as something beyond just sour grapes, referencing specific works of fan fiction that have specific parallels with Q is necessary. If it's just, "well, some people have written NGE fics with a post-apocalyptic flavor" or "fan...

I knew exactly what I wanted to speculate for the Final preview before I clicked this thread, but I see Warren already beat me to it: the exact same false preview for 3.0 only replacing the upcoming title of the movie to "Final". Good call. haha. :tiphat: I wonder if there's any signi...

You can't just generalize everyone who disliked the film like that. I'm sure there are plenty of people who bristled against the timeskip, the Wunder, and the tone as concepts more than how they were used. As with the original series, the list of reasons people like and dislike the story goe...

I don't think anything needs to be explained or justified, you just plain disliked how Anno chose to tell the story. Which is fine. If it's any consolation, I'll be surprised if the major character relationships don't change in Final.

Is anyone else here "less than thrilled" to hear about this? I mean, I know it's utterly blasphemous for a fan to NOT be excited to hear this set of news, but considering how this whole site endured COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF BUTT HURT from Q alone, would it be understandable from my perspect...

Shinji killing himself would be like Tolkien using eagles to fly Frodo to Mount Doom. It "makes sense" in a broad way, but is also obvious, boring, lazy, and dramatically inert. So no, Anno's not gonna spend four films and years of his life just to build to THAT, folks.

Subtitles are for literal translations. Dubs should play around with things more. I remain a fan of almost all the English swearing, going back to the original. "So fucking what if I'm not you!?" is the appropriate reaction to EoE!Shinji.

^I remain skeptical about Khara being behind this, but who knows. At the very least, I hope they didn't let those immature con-goers give them cold feet. Delaying the release because some stunted fans can't handle gay undertones would be a big overreaction.

Well, shit. If that's the only issue that's holding things up (which I'm still not convinced it is), that seems like a silly reason for the delay. I mean, who cares? And I say that as someone who's enjoyed the dubs. The quality of it isn't going to gain or lose them one s...

So re-recording a few lines is enough to push back the release a year ? Even if they re-recorded the entire film, starting like, today, you'd think Christmas season would be an easy goal. At the latest. I dunno. I feel like there's some deeper mystery unknowable to everyone but the distribut...
