So, will this the famous "Black Evangelion" appearance?

I admit that if it wasn't for this mention of this "Unit-Null" designation, I would had thought that this short would be about the activation test of EVA-04.
Still, the "another time, another place" seems to indicate that it's before the events of Q.

Or crazy theory: that short will talk about the "second" Third Impact that happened after N3I and turned the landscape to core, gave teeth to the ground, sprouted the FoIs and other shit!

Let the dream live on. :lol:

^ I hope so El, but now the Staff list kinda says no, and I already asked a Admin to move this to a more appropriate sub-section.

This will however be the appearance of the Black Evangelion, and I am hype either way.

Ah, another EVA-based short, I can hardly wait. :kensuke_drool: I don't particularly care if its connected to Q or 4.0 or Hell the original, its Evangelion!! And its Aramaki Shinji's work, I loved his visuals in Vexille and Appleseed.

Yea, I'd say this will be its own thing. That said, get hype! :luigi_dance:

Well, we do have a very big cast of missing Evas in Rebuild. Null could be any of those (although the story sounds like it would fit into its own continuity since it doesn't seem to have any bearing on Q like Until You Come to Me).

I am a bit intrigued as to why it's so confidential, but maybe that's just to provoke hype, and each short doesn't really have much background prior to release anyway.

It's probably "confidential" in the sense of top secret info, kind of like the Second Impact documents in NGE-verse.

I love that Hayashibara was right about another derivative work. :D Though we have no hints if this derivative work takes place in NGE-verse or NTE-verse, huh?

In-thread note, no worries that this is in Rebuild of Eva subforum. If it appears to take place in NGE-verse, that can be moved easily there once we find out more.

Should be fun. Not excited about the heavy CG aspect of it. Hopefully it won't come across too much like a videogame cut scene. With 2 Eva shorts before the half way point we may end up seeing as many as 4 Eva shorts total in the Expo.

I also give it three weeks before a Black Evangelion figure is announced.

@Dataprime
From the first shot, it looked like it was based of Unit-02 because of the way the head is shaped and the horn outline.

Unit Null, well wonder what that means in relation to the Evangelion.

Anyone think we are going to have some more Eva vs Eva action?

@Gendo'sPapa, that would be nice, we know we have at least two now. :wink:

It's saying it's not canon. It's not hard to figure out. People just want to read other things into it because that's what they want it to be. :lol:

I mean christ, Anno not directing should be enough to stop wild fan speculation.

Looking forward to it regardless. 's gonna be sweet.
I finally put something here!

Shifted to "Everything Else Evangelion" because its connection with Rebuild is unclear. We'll move it back if turns out that these Animator Expo shorts are canonical.

Yeah, unlike until You come to me, Anno isn't even credited on the project's tab. So, that should settle the debate. It's not canon.
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

Since we don't have the complete credits yet, Anno might still get an "original work" credit as he usually does when it comes to Eva.

But it's not like that's relevant. Only the main features are canon.

It doesn't even have to be canonical if you ask me. Even if Until You Come To Me isn't canonical, it's still clearly set primarily "within" the ENT-verse. Whereas this one isn't even pretending that much.

Why does Until you come to me. need to be canon to be relevant in some way? It didn't even portray actual events, so it's not like something happens that interferes with the final film.
The Expo is a big project by Anno, and suddenly we get an Eva short. Notice how it being an Eva short was a surprise, it's not at all like with this one. It was important. This one? We even saw it in the trailer. The other one was also made by khara, this one wasn't.
I think we shouldn't pretend we know how relevant Until you come to me is. Only Anno knows. Especially if there's still a film left that hasn't even begun production, so everything is open.

Maybe there's a chance it's somehow related to a previously unknown live-action project? The CG eva looks like it came straight out of a live action film.
