EDIT: In case you're trigger happy, 3.333 is already up for preorder on CDJapan.
I feel that also answers the question of will any of this years Japanese Rebuild releases include English subs...and the answer is no. That'll be an alternate acquisition for me, happy to import when there's subs but not much point without.
Really wish that was more common, it was very nice being able to just import the Heaven's Feel releases and not wait for local ones.
The closest thing to what you desire would be the licensed Hong Kong Blu-ray (w/ English subs and locked to Region "A") of Shin Eva, which typically gets released 3-4 months after its Japanese counterpart but still well in advance of the Anglosphere (US/UK/AUS) markets. I own the HK BD of 3.33, and it's actually rather superior to the Funimation release in terms of video quality.
Of course seeing that you're in Scotland, you'd have to own a region-free player to make the HK BD a viable option as European players are coded for Region "B".
