At least Aki's fine again. :bigeyes:

And now it's time to explain to a four years-old the concept of death, always a hard thing to do as a parent, especially when their child is so young.

Re: Waiting for Evangelion:3.0+1.0

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.

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

Thinking about it with hindsight, I think that the "generic" and fanservice part of 2.0 was necessary to give us a high point in the story, to give to the character and the audience hope and actually make us care for the characters and the world they live in. One remark that Mr Tines made ...

Re: 3.0 CRC in development!

You know, I wonder if the changes to the ending of 2.0 explain WHY it seemingly contradicts the beginning of 3.0, with Shinji explicitly triggering 3i and destroying the world instead of it being stopped halfway. If that were the case, 3.0/Shin very well could’ve been the originally planned ending ...

Re: 3.0+1.0 Cinema or straight to DVD?

Anime theater release is almost non-existent, which is surprising seeing how manga and anime is popular here and with the almost fetish of Japanese culture in France. The only animes that get a theatrical release are the Ghiblis, and lately Makoto Shinkai's movies. The Jo Ha Q marathon that I've see...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

^^ The thing is that I don't think that Q is supposed to work as a standalone movie, but as the first part (or even the prologue) of the second half of NTE, with Shin as the second part, the problem is Shin ended up releasing nine years after Q, leaving us stewing in that cliffhanger of a depressive...

Re: 3.0 CRC in development!

I'd like to see these threads. Anyway, can't get more obvious than having Urashima mentioned as foreshadowing. It's not just Urashima, there's another, more subtle foreshadowing in the song that plays when EVA-01 destroys EVA-03 with Asuka inside (kudos to Kendrix who discovered it): said song is t...

Locally or internationally? The former might be possible seeing how much of a cultural juggernaut Evangelion is in Japan, but the later? Not a chance.

Re: 3.0 CRC in development!

Well, all this really proves is that the original plan for 3.0 was abandoned relatively quickly. Remember, 2010 was one year after 2.0 released with that trailer for the scrapped version of 3.0. And I do still believe that the 3.0 preview was going to become an actual movie at some point. Otherwise...

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

Fun fact: Unless IMDB is missing data ( which is entirely possible ), the international release of Evangelion 3.0 didn't start until the day the movie became available on Blu-ray in Japan ( April 24, 2013 ). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0860907/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_dt_dt That might explain why that ...

It seems like a pretty reasonable drop tickets week 2 -53% week 3 -29% week 4 -25% yen week 2 -52% week 3 -28% week 4 -28% Yeah, it follows the general rule that most of a movie's revenues is made during the first two weeks.

4 weeks
4,513,374 tickets, 6,898,613,200 yen

So not even 1 billion since last week, it seems that the period of maximum profitability is over.

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

The big question is what will come first: the international release (with the camrip that comes with it) or the Japanese BR (with the BRrip that comes with it) Well whichever it is the Blu-Ray will definitely be first for me, I do not see Evangelion getting it's last film in normal cinema's here.

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

So why were people expecting anything by April 4th, or have I misremembered? Or maybe people were foretelling the wrong prophecy and got JoJo's mixed in. If you read back the thread it’s basically “next Sunday for sure” every week :hitthetable: Well, as you summed so well: https://frinkiac.com/gif/...

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

That's because now there are spoilers out there and the temptation to seek them to finally get the end of the story, so Shin is much more on our minds, which makes the time pass more slowly. Back during the release delays, there was nothing more to do than to wait, there was no source of informatio...

What does kokoro" mean? It mean “heart; mind; spirit”. Edit: if this kanji is read as "shin", besides having the same meanings as "kokoro", it can also mean "vitality". Pretty fitting for an organization called "Will" in German! A shame that Anno didn't'...
