New Evangelion


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else heard about the new Evangelion movies that Anno is making? Has there been any new news about it lately? According to http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/article.php?id=9464,

"According to the October issue of Newtype (Japan) (On sale September 10), four new Evangelion movies are in the works. The four movies will include a prequel, a mid-series movie, a sequel and a "final" movie. The prequel movie is due out early summer 2007.

While the new story will be set during the same time frame as the original TV series, Newtype states that it will be an entirely new project, not be a remake or improvement of any sort. Newtype also mentions that viewers will not need to have already seen previous Evangelion material in order to understand and enjoy the new movies.

Hideaki Anno will write the scenario for the first movie and will be the general director and manager for the entire project. Kazuya Tsurumaki will direct the movies while Yoshiyuki Sadamoto will provide character designs and Ikuto Yamashita will provide mechanical designs. Shinji Higuchi will provide storyboards for the first movie.

Khara, a new studio that shares office space with Gainax, was recently set up and is seeking production staff to work on Anno's new project."

Thanks for the welcome :biggrin:

Yeah, when I first saw it posted, I had thought that Anno was going to do a retake on the whole series, but i'm interested to see how this is going to turn out. I really hope it's as good as the original, which I absolutely loved.

It would be so awesome if it's a continuation of the dream world Shinji finds himself in in the last episodes, like Angelic Days (a doujin that got licensed in the US, for any who may not know).

I saw it when it came out, I am rather confused by it. Can you please explain?

Sounds like crap to me. Eva with depressed and ultimately psychotic characters is pretty much the only way Eva should be.

Except Shinji's a whiny bitch =/

Remember that part in the last episode where Shinji's in a dream world, and runs into Rei and she yells at him for looking at her panties, and their teacher is Misato?

The series is basically that, prolonged. I personally like it a lot. Interesting new take.
