never understood the hate on eva3, it was so much better than the predictable 1 & 2

anno seems to have alot work lately, hope he keeps doing mind blowing films, instead of catering to the mass

This right here^ I'm tired of hearing everyone BS about Eva 3.33. I'd rather have something ambitious and ballsy in its execution than the same thing over and over. Of course all I'm doing is feeding the trolls, so yeah, I'm going to end it right here. Also am looking forward to this film as well!


It was really ballsy how none of the characters contributed to the narrative, nobody had any lines but Shinji and Kaworu, the timeskip was unnecessary, and everyone at the end of the film was basically the same as at the beginning of it.

Real ambitious. A film where nothing happens that completely derails the momentum of the series.

But hey, maybe Ultraman will appear in this Godzilla film.

I'm personally not a fan of Hideaki Anno (I thought Evangelion was extremely boring), but as a Godzilla fan, I'll stay optimistic.

No, the fourth film of Evangelion will never come out because Anno won't give a shit about it. It's as simple as that. You could already see it with the third one if it wasn't clear enough.

Well.

I... kind of want this, I think.

Just as long as it isn't a series of films that ruins itself in the third entry.

Aw, damn it, couldn't make it through the whole post without referencing Rebuild 3.33.



I came here to type EXACTLY this. I hope it's more like his 90's works and not like the abomination that was 3.33.


So Godzila spends a huge portion of the film whining like a bitch why no one likes him, while the other characters quote Freud and the bible.
ALL ABROAD THE FUN TRAIN.

As much as we may not like this, Toho gave the nod to have Anno direct this movie. If anything, we should complain to them.

What do you mean by he doesn't care? Death and Rebirth and EOE was in large part made because the original ending wasn't a reflection of his original vision. Each rebuild movie has received multiple reissues due to minor edits and soundtrack differences. And let's not forget the fact that Funimation has had to delay their release of 3.33 for almost 2 years because of his insistence on recording an entirely new dub and adding a new subtitle track, all with him heavily overseeing the process. If anything he cares too much!

You seem to be confusing Evangelion with Hideaki Anno. Whom, might I add, has been involved in quite a bit of anime that's not Evangelion. If you want an actually legitimate indicator of the film's possible outcome, I'd suggest looking towards 2012's Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo short film.

Hope they'll go through with the Godzilla movie. It maybe limited in budget, but as long as creative juices are still flowing, budget won't be as big of issue.

Awesome, let's be prepared for a fuck. Plot twist, Jesus got resurrected as a T-Rex that mutated into Godzilla. Also, it has type-blue blood, evangelion 4.0 confirmed for 2025.

Also, before that guy who always complains gets here, 3.33 is a great movie.

EDIT: he beat me here

Is his Godzilla going to possess an umbilical cord and a 15-minute timer I wonder? Of course with Godzilla in full-amp mode 15 minutes likely would be more than enough time to flatten Tokyo or recycle Japan. I like Godzilla immensely and it's creation has been a prime reason why I can relate to anime so much (Yea, Japan!).

Re Anno & 4.44: If the Tooth Fairy ever decides to visit my abode by accident and grants me a wish I think I'll request that 40 years be removed from my chronological age so I can live long enough to be around to watch Evangelion 4.44 if it ever gets released for US consumption. At the present rate if 3.33 even gets a US release I'm sure I'll be dead by that time busily being converted into worm food 6' under.

This could be legitimately awesome. I would love to see something with the intensity of the battles in End of Eva, but with Godzilla.

And I too loved 3.0 so sue me people.
