Where's my Biden Bux? I don't care if he sniffs children's hair, just give me my NEET dollars.

So will Qanon bullshit finally die tomorrow? So sick of seeing boomers talking about "trusting the plan".

The frustration is more from the fact that other movies are airing and coming out, so it feels like Anno and Co. are just morally grandstanding, especially when they’ve already had their own private screening of the movie and comes across as excluding others who have waited eight years for closure.

I know people are stupid and all, but I struggle to fathom being angry enough at a pushed back launch date to bitch about it on twitter or whatever other garbage is out there.

I got a game for you Verb and anyone else who wants to participate. I’ll be counting up from when it was delayed and you place your bets on when we get an announcement on a new date.

If your answer is five days or more out from when we actually get news you win nothing. If it’s four to one day out I’ll give you a small but noticeable prize. If you’re right on the money I’ll import you the Japanese BD whenever it releases. Only one person can win that one obviously.

Apple’s product page has One Last Kiss available on March 3 which would put it at Wednesday just like before when it was supposed to release January 27th, four days after the premiere. That could put the theatrical release at February 27th, and the state of emergency in Japan ends February 7th. While it could just be a placeholder date, it’s still possible.

Keep in mind other movies and anime movies are still screening at this time. Khara alone made the decision to delay the movie again, and the Japanese fan base is getting angry on Twitter. There will be increased pressure to release this film as soon as possible.

Japanese content creators have convinced themselves that online piracy is just as evil as Covid. While I don’t defend piracy, any executive who thinks there won’t be camrips of this movie has their head up their ass and isn’t living in the sane world anymore.

but honestly, streaming services exist, guys

9 is for Eva Mark 09, also known as the Adam's Vessel. I love the grim reaper design it evolves into near the end of the movie.

His rallies usually have him there so there’s always strict security with secret service around.

Were there any riots caused by Trump rallies previously?
Could be why there was lack of strong law-enforcement presence at the time.

Misato and the Wille crew sortie to settle everything.

Asuka and Mari pilot the Eva to settle everything.

Shinji confronts his father Gendo to settle everything.

And Shinji decides, farewell to all Evangelion.

In other news, 3.333 released today. There’s has been several new information regarding this new cut of Eva Q:

>WILLE logo is clearly visible on the downed ship in Lilith’s Chamber.
>Unit 02’s beast mode code is now “Back Code Three Seven”.
>The dialogue between Asuka and Rei Q in the Mark 09 is cut short; Asuka doesn’t ask “Who are you?!”
>The lighting in the room Gendo and Fuyutsuki are in is different and the room is more clearly visible.
>The shoulder wings growing out of Eva 13 are changed from red to purple.

And most importantly: A NEW UPDATED NEXT TIME PREVIEW, I’ll post more in a bit, on my phone.

Theaters have agreed to shorten their operating hours in Japan, as a result the midnight release of 3.0+1.0 has been canceled.

The movie is still schedule to release in theaters during normal day-to-day operational hours on the 23rd. This has not changed.

I got extraordinarily lucky when my sociopathic ex tried to get me fired on a false accusation of harassment. Not only did the company find her accusation entirely baseless and told her to never to make up a lie like that again, but she ended up losing her most dreamed position/location to me in the end afterwards.

Had she gotten away with it though, and had I lost my job, I have several thousand dollars in savings in the case of unexpected unemployment and have various levels of backup plans laid out in case one of those things don't work out. It would be a major setback to my overall plans but I figured if things just keeping failing for me, so long as I can get an overnight security guard position at some retirement home I'd be okay. Sure I'd lose all my ambitious goals, but if I'm failing constantly, I'm probably not cut out for that anyways.

A state of emergency has been declared in the Tokyo area of Japan. Theaters have not been ordered to shutdown but are told to now operate at limited capacity (not specified how limited) and are to close at 8PM until February 7th. No announcement by Toho or Toei yet on pushing back the release. This will surely affect the release of 3.333 but will only delay Shin's original midnight release. Presale tickets for Shin are still expected to go out January 13th, giving us an idea of the total runtime of the movie.

Keep in mind, this only affects the Tokyo area, the rest of Japan should still be able to have their midnight release of Shin and late night viewings of 3.333.

Thankfully I got the first step of my grand agenda completed a month before my quarter-life crisis, but then the COOF came along in March and fucked everything up.

Happy Birthday though.

The part where Third Impact starting up from Gendo's hand in Rei onwards was pretty good, but the actual Instrumentality sequence where Komm Susser Tod played was a bit more underwhelming; then again it's hard to find a song that'll parallel the scene better than one that was hand tailored just for it.

At the risk of continuously being labeled a Reddit Consooooomer, I've waited eight years for this movie and if there's one franchise that I truly connect with, it's this one, and this is the big finale for all of it. When watching Eva it's like looking into a mirror, I see a bit of myself in all of the main four characters. That can be both optimistic and also scary at the same time. These characters have positive qualities to them but their mistakes and how others treat them really tears them down and I can't help but notice the parallels with my own conflicts in life.

Hideaki Anno is a genius and after this final movie for the whole series I doubt I'm ever going to find a work of art as personal to me as Eva.

That being said, it's earnestly nice to see that you're so enthusiastic about stuff. Be nice if I could feel that kind of enthusiasm about anything.

My account still has my old ODST emblem but it doesn’t show up in the options if I were to change it.

are halo emblems even usable on bungie now? i feel like only Destiny™ stuff can be used

The Japanese Government announced today that there are no plans to declare a state of emergency amid the rising cases in Covid; claiming that such a state of emergency would hardly be effective if at all. Furthermore, the state of emergency would only be declared in the Tokyo area where cases are truly surging, but this point is now moot. The government instead is attempting to increase speed on distribution to vaccines to the populace.

There have been fears of another delay with rising Covid cases despite news articles pointing out that the booming success of Demon Slayer contributed very little (if anything) to the surge in Covid cases. Nevertheless, this is Toho's final fiscal quarter for their year and they need another big box office hit in order to stay in the green for the year and the Japanese government agrees with their lead economists saying a national lockdown would be "unsustainable" economically.
