Aren't they jumping the gun a bit though? That looks like young Mari, and she's holding Mari's glasses

Here is a bigger picture of the character:

If it was Mari's mother, that'd be consistent with both the 'new character' and appearance, plus she could be put into a flashback and not interfere with any of the existing storyline.

I don't think that would make sense unless the theorized time loop has the Mangaverse as one of it's repeats.

It can't be Mari, Mari wears glasses. Isn't it odd that that woman who doesn't wear glasses isn't ever in the same room with Mari?

Evafan has pointed out something interesting: http://neweva.blog103.fc2.com/blog-entry-3149.html

Usually Sadamoto's manga has the copyright written as: "©カラー・GAINAX" (Khara and Gainax)
All the ENT stuff usually has "©カラー" (just Khara)

This new promotional flyer with mystery girls has both: "©カラー ©カラー・GAINAX"

Evafan proposes two possibilities regarding the dual copyright of this new 28 page story:
1. It's a story based in the ENT timeline
2. It's an original Sadamoto work, but since Sadamoto is with Khara that gets the extra mention seperate form Gainax


Please unleash all the ridiculous speculation.




EDIT: ChaddyManPrime, she might not be wearing the glasses but she's holding them.

To me that just looks like Manga!Yui holding Gendo's glasses.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Ya it looks a lot like Mari, and she looks great with hair down!
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

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

She reminds me of when Asuka had her hair down in that bathroom scene.

I think this makes Three or Four Eva Universes she's appeared in so far.

Three universes: NTE, ANIMA and now the manga, if it's actually Mari, but it looks so much like her that I can't think that it's a completely original character.

Also in the image, can someone translate the partial text just at the right of Mari(?)'s head, there a 28 between brackets. (inb4 it's glasses woman seen in Fuyu's photo in Q)

Kensuke is a military otaku who, at one point, is shown creepily taking pictures of girls to sell. He would clearly fit right in as an animator at Studio Gainax. -- Compiling_Autumn
EoTV is a therapist, EoE is a drill instructor. -- Chuckman
Seriously, that is the most fananked theory I've ever heard, more than Mari being Marty McFly travelling through time to keep her parents (Asushin) together. -- Jäeger

It wouldn't be Eva without finding a new way to sell it to the fans.

I'd have a real big laugh if the "New Character" just turns out to be a Barista. In the new 28 pages Asuka & Shinji go to a coffee shop & the "New Character" serves them both a cup of coffee. End of story.

Let the fan fiction begin!

@ El

The fourth is the Petite Universe if you count it, I was kinda hesitant to do so.

IIRC, she only appears very briefly in the videogame of the Petite Eva series, which is her very first appearance past the 2.0 trailer and also where her name was revealed.

She also shows up in some art so I count it, just hesitant to use it.

I think the 28 is the mystery woman's age. Need a bigger scan to see for sure.

Edit: Looks like the 28 = 28 pages after all.
