Is it a good idea to have a thread for probably not news but related things? Or would that just be spam?

Anyway Yamashita tweeted this:

I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean. What exactly does the book say and what does it have to do with Evangelion?

“シンエヴァ” translates into “New Eva." "山下いくと” is romanized as “Yamashita”, as in Ikuto Yamashita, the mech designer for the Evangelion franchise.

What’s important to note is that “New Eva” is a title specific for the advertisements for “FINAL.” Prior to this, the NTE movies like Jo, Ha, and Q have always been called “Evangelion New Theatrical Editions” as opposed to “New Evangelion Theatrical Edition,” suggesting that something even newer than Q will be introduced to the Eva franchise will be presented in “FINAL.”

“New Eva Yamashita” indicates that the Evangelion Units themselves could have already been completed for “FINAL.”

シンエヴァ is the commonly used short version of what is as far as we know the official title of Final: シン・エヴァンゲリオン劇場版

http://evangelion.co.jp/final.html

That book appears to be Yamashita's copy of whatever material is used internally for the production.


EDIT: FreakyFilmFan4ever, because Shin is given in katakana and not kanji we can not say with certainty they mean it as "new" Eva. Shin could also mean "True/real/genuine" Eva.

That's a big book for the Eva unit designs we have here, so far the only ones stated to appear are 8+2, the MP-Evas and probably EVA-01.
Does that mean that we'll get more Evas in FINAL? Maybe the missing Units (7 and 10-12) or others ADAM's Vessels if that figure of Awakened Mark.09 is anything to go by?

The book having Yamashita's name on it does not necessarily mean it is all his work. It is far more likely to be a common internal reference book of all the needed material so far but because that needs to be kept under wraps and leaks need to be traced each staff's copy has their name stamped on it.

Don't worry, it was just spontaneous fanwankery to pass time! :tongue:

Although I would suggest Yamashita to hide that book in a safe, 'cause that tweet might give some people ideas, it would be inconvenient to have a leakage by cause of rabid fan burglar! :lol:

Given the false ceiling and the tons of shelves I would suspect that's from inside khara and not his personal home.

Just to know, what's exactly the focus of that tweet: the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 figures, or did Yamashita wanted to troll/hype us up with the Eva book?
Or both? :lol:

Just a note: Related news threads like this is totally fine as long as it doesn't get spammy/off-topic (try to keep it about Studio khara Staff).

Carry on!

Oh God. I know the film is in the making, but it's good to see actual proof.

Sega will release an official figure of Mark.09 in its ADAM's Vessel form (the one in red and black and the horned head), which is labeled as the first Adams' Vessel and the description implies that there's yet another form after this one.

I'm in favor of this thread remaining. Nothing wrong with a hype train as long as it doesn't get derailed.

Wasn't anything too enlightening (obviously, hehe), pretty much confirming it's notes like TM's post earlier mentioned.

And something about how "Eva sin sounds like a cute animal compilation" (I so don't get it). :bigeyes:

Oh, that’s the only part you don’t understand? I’m just gonna drop what Google Translate gave me.

Please to mind (like animal knitting cute Eva Sin Toka winding trilogy heaven Eva Sin) other files if it has reflected rather

Saying this out loud over and over again has certainly made my day, though. :hahaha:
