So I guess the whole
eyepatch thing is for real.
I was certain Gainax was trolling us. Anyway, the new footage looks great!

Possibly longer. Didn't it take a couple years after the Japanese release of 2.0?

What? At the very least, the brief Itano Circus that served as Asuka's introduction was hand-drawn.
And you just got 14 seconds of footage from a 90-120min film. I don't know what you're complaining about, unless you're extrapolating that the whole movie is like the 14 seconds shown, but 2.0 somehow isn't already chock full of CG?

The animation is low quality? Unless we have different definitions of what "animation" is, I'll have to disagree.
It's a matter of being right and wrong. Saying the animation quality is low is WRONG. It's not up for argument or discussion. It's factually wrong

It's poor for a theatrical anime production. It's OVA quality (at best) a lot of the time.

Also, lolcg.

Remember when they said parts 3 and 4 would be shown back-to-back as one movie, years back? And we pretty much assumed they had changed their plans since then?
Well, according to Maya's voice actress, that's still the idea.

Still from the same event, Katô said that some people in-the-know find the plot for those last parts to be "too dark". Guess we shouldn't expect a Disney ending.

Can duckroll (or anyone else who knows Japanese) say whether this person on Twitter should be listened to or not?

Because whoever it is, they're saying/implying that 3.0 and Final will still be shown together.

It'll turn out this whole thing is just Shinji's fever dream as he's starving to death on that beach post End of Evangelion.

(He already ate Asuka, naturally.)

God, I hope so. I'm an Eva freak, but I thought 2.0 was pandery as fuck. If the last two movies manage to recapture the bite that made the original so special, then the bark of the prior Rebuild films will be forgiven.

Perhaps this time they'll actually make something great with movie quality animation throughout.

Who am I kidding, that will never happen. Khara is just out to make some money.

I don't know how often it even gets up to that level. I mean, Idolm@ster is a TV production with better character animation.

When Rebuild was first announced, they said that 3.0 and Final would be shown back to back as a double feature.

Yeah, but that was 4-5 years ago and a lot of what was announced then has changed (e.g. all 4 films being out by the end of 2008 :lol).

Well, I didn't want to sell those few great mechanical animation scenes short, but even those are covered in copius amounts of CG blur so they still don't look so great.

The character animation is just lol though. It's almost disgraceful for a franchise with this amount of popularity (and money) to be released in theaters with that level of quality.

I still haven't seen 1.0 or 2.0, been putting it off until I get something capable of playing blu-rays. So Rebuild's a stealth sequel, no? I remember a lot of back and forth on that.

I just want more Mari now.
I have a feeling it's the leggings/panty-hose and the red glasses. I love red glasses.

Also, I wonder if the whole timeline theory will be proved with the ends of the movies with Rebuild being a sequel of the original.

Also, I thought the movies looked pretty great on bluray. It's pretty, that's for sure.

Nothing has been for sure confirmed, but there's a hell of a lot of evidence. We'll probably get trolled and never be given an actual answer though, but there will be so many hints without it ever being confirmed.

Basically every line from
Kaworu
hints at it being a sequel, but there's no real evidence one way or the other yet.

Yet another year? Wow :|

IF they do show 3.0 and Final back to back, then another year is fine to me. I would hate to have another two or three year wait between 3.0 and Final.
