DHL man finally delivered my calendar. It is goregous. Looking over it I don't see anything super, duper, mega amazing secrets that hint at anything but it is all very beautiful.

One thing I didn't know I'd be getting was artist bio blurbs. These actually come in both Japanese and english. They go over some of the career highlights and meniton the role the person had in the Evangelion New Theatrical series. Yes that seems the official english.

Image


The other most interesting part from the bios:

Hiramatsu was a layout artist and key animator on Evangelion: 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 and plans to participate in 4.0 as well


IT'S HAPPPENNING





Also Akemi Hayashi's ReiQ is kawaii

I love how every normal situation becomes inherently funny just by adding Rei Q in it, must be the completely deadpan expression no matter what's around her! :lol:

Aw man, I really told myself I'd give this one a pass because it was a bit pricey - Especially after having just come back from a trip to Japan, and about to head off to Bali for Christmas/NYE in a couple days time. But after such glowing remarks from Bags and TMB, and in the face of such gorgeous illustration; my fortitude crumbles.

One calendar, ordered.

Eh, can always just think of it as a Christmas gift to myself, huh?

I suck.

How can we even tell which Rei it is, without her plugsuit and everything?

Regular Rei does that expression for funny BG purposes as well, including some official art.

These pics are really detailed, tho. Depending on how much cash I get for christmas, I might just grab one of these as well...

Too many comics, LPs, and Eva merch out there, need more money.

Well, first it's an Evangelion Q themed calendar, so the most likely is that it's Rei Q. And second Rei II in the Rebuild official art don't make the same kind of deadpan expression : she generally has her eyes slightly more open, like she's taking as much as she can of these new experiences while keeping her usual calm facade.
Rei Q's expression has her eyes half-closed, as if no matter what's around her she doesn't calculate it unless she's ordered to, or she notices but don't give a shit! :lol:

*whistles*

Those are some fine pictures. I would buy it, but I got some money for the holidays and I actually want to save it this time. However, I'm getting a job soon, so that should give me some spending cash.

I feel pretty safe saying this is definitely Shinji now.

If you look closely he's got a thread heading down from his upper body on the left side of him, which I'm thinking is the SDAT headphones.

I think it's just a pencil stroke due to the art style, if you looks closely there is a similar one on his right leg.

On the same vein, if you look at his neck, the black of the hair continue past the neck and to the right, like a ponytail, or again the color that overflows due to the art style.

Also, thanks to the immense zoom offered by the hosting site, I can say that the big structure looks like a giant launching bay for aircrafts : there is a row of ramps, each leading to a big door in a rectangular structure, maybe a hangar.
Also, if you look closely at the background at left of the walking character, you can distinguish a big structure with what looks like two chimney, or two towers.

---

So, about the other interesting ones :
Image

That's actually a diagram of how the MAGI system works. At first I thought that it was WILLE's MAGI Achiral system, but upon closer inspection, turns out it's NERV's old System : there is a mention of a "NERV MAGI System" on the legend, and when you zoom at maximum on the center, the three red hexagon on the center have the label MELCHIOR, BALTHAZAR and GASPAR(from left to right)


---
Now, Sakura with her friend :
Image
The label of the restaurant is illegible, and Sakura's friend definitively have a Misato vibe, both in the hair color and style!


---
Our dear friend Kaworu with his mysterious plugsuit :
Image
First : the plugsuit's collar area is upturned, which with the lighting makes it impossible to say if it's the Mark.06 or EVA-13 plugsuit.
Two : Is that an entry plug port on his neck?! :cringe:
The cylindric thing is definitively an entry plug.
Although it's probably just a trick of the perspective and there is an Eva hided by Kaworu's body.

---
The trio and the cat :
Image
That's definitively Rei Q and Shinji's feet, and for some reason Asuka's feet is from her tapped up plugsuit form the first half of Q(probably a liberty taken by the artist so we could see it's Asuka, since her new plugsuit is black/dark purple at the feet)

---
Size comparison :
Image
It's impossible to see without zooming, but the five person in the Japanese Navy uniforms are actually the five Eva pilots! :D (Rei, Kaworu, Shinji, Asuka and Mari)

Ah good eye, I totally missed it in my haste. I'm still not convinced it's Kaji, though. Don't know what it is but the body seems off for a full sized adult like him.

I get the same feeling, the proportions seems a bit off for a well built adult like Kaji, but it could also be an effect of the loose clothing or the artist style.

But anyway I'm sure it's supposed to be either Shinji or Kaji.(and then we have a making of revealing that it's Hideki! -o-; )

Now that I saw this calendar, I can't accept anything less than some epic human constructions that would put the Geofront to shame, some industrial complexes such as you only see in W40K, something big enough to be seen from freaking space at the minimum!
