I don't think this was discussed here but it should have been. This is going to be insane and as an Eva worshipper I can't frickin wait. ELAM was great to dream about for a while, but knowing that Mr. Anno is actually behind this project is too good to be true. 4 Movies, new plots, characters, ending...

Join me in worship..

EDIT: Here are some scans about it...if you read japanese please translate...that would be awesome. Also, check out the tight, updated drawing style.

Hey! I heard they're making Star Wars PREQUALS!!! And George Lucas is going to be involved. These are going to be awesome! Oh wait... they where worse than festering roadkill...

This has alot of potential to either rock or suck. Personally, I'd rather see an Eva series based on the Angelic Days manga/game. Now that would be interesting. But I really don't know what take they're going to do with this. Are they just beating a dead horse? Or do they really have something new they can contribute to the series. I'm reserving judgement for when they release more info.

Also, why not finish Kare Kano? I know there isn't the same fan base, but there is a helluva lot more that can be done. Such a good series destroyed by Anno leaving early.

I hear where you're coming from. Personally I think they're going to rock. With Anno back behind the wheel (And hopefully a steady budget) I don't see much that could go wrong. After the hundreds of fanfictions I've read Anno better have a good idea about what he wants to do with it. I'm just glad that we're getting something original and different. If I had to see another double golden platinum ver 2.567 box set I would shoot myself. The Live Action Movie gave me the false hope as well, but I was expecting that knowing that Anno wasn't involved. I still hope for greatness though, an effort that's probably futile.

Maybe it's just the nostalgia, or the idea of news doors opening in the eva universe but this gets me hyped...even though it won't be out for a while. And also the fact that it's not going to be a 26 ep series, just 4 full length movies. I find that fact to be intrigueing.

........ the original trilogy from the 70s was great, many would call it a masterpiece. They were followed by 3 prequel movies which were made in recent years. azrael910 was making a joke about how the new prequels to Star wars sucked eluding to the fact that this new Evangelion movie series might suck too.

In layman's terms:
Original Star Wars=Masterpiece
New Star Wars=Garbage

Original Evangelion=Masterpiece
New Evangelion=Garbage?

Why can't they just give the old masterpieces an overhaul while they are at it? The graphics on the series are not up to par with the movie, and they are starting to get a little dated.

They are walking that thin line called disenfranchisement. If this sucks, it will become very confusing for people now joining Eva.
Like if we don't have enough people confused between the series ending and the movie ending(Don't know how that is possible )

But with Anno working actively on the project, he should keep the cliche stuff from slipping in. And I want to know what his outlook on life is after a decade of success(happy plotline? )

Yeah I started reading the manga a while ago, though I've been slacking off. I do like it though and I mean to finish it one of these days. I hate downloading manga, I really prefer it in print form. Probably why I don't read as manga as I should.

I don't have a date yet. Only a confirmation that it's happening. I'll definitely spread the word when I find out though. And I agree lusulphur, if anno has become happier these past 10 years maybe it'll reflect in the series. ShinjixAsuka anyone?

Just read the cover story in Newtype about this. Tentative release date is Summer 2007 in Japan. Hideki Anno is doing the first installment, with other directors doing the other installments. Basically they're going to retell the story, so it's definitely not a sequal/prequal of any kind and is intended to stand on it's own. Apparently they're going to tone down the series to appeal to a broader audience, but they insist it will still require some thought.

it has already been stated that they arent going to do it for the money but for fans. Because they start making it now is simpley because the computer hardware has becomed sufficient enough that it CAN be done...what i have readed somewhere..think it was wiki.

it was and still is master peace...even 25-26(think they really brought the most). Good and bad that it became such an mainstream anime...ZoMg YoU HaVe To ThInK AnD Use brains...

It ends there, I thought Kare Kano went farther then that, like when they had kids of there own and things like that.

I enjoy Evangelion and I liked episode 25-26 and EOE, as well, so I've pretty much enjoyed all that the series has to offer, so I'm excited we're seeing some 'new' stuff, whether or not it sucks, only time will tell
