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.

It's their revenge for people not obeying their hentai blacklist.

Just watched Evangelion (And The End), still processing it. Can very confidently say that a lot of it went over my head, but it was incredibly entertaining nonetheless.

Haven’t checked out any of the rebuilds, though.

At day 16 I’m suspending the count up. It appears Khara & Anno have little interest in giving any update on the movie and stubbornly refuse to appease their growingly frustrated fan base. Maybe an announcement will occur on February 7th, but know Khara’s recent track record, this is beyond wishful thinking.

This....might actually appease fans during the wait.

Khara has hinted at the release of an Evangelion 3.0 Complete Records Collection (CRC). This was primarily held off because it supposedly contained spoilers for 3.0+1.0 as well. Khara's second twitter account also shows some pictures/pages from this new material.

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.
i missed this post, but i can say for certain that i absolutely would not have guessed a date anywhere near march 8

Apparently during the staff screening, Anno’s greeting was

“It’s a little long, if you want to go to the toilet, go”

I can’t seem to get the official date right for the countdown, but the Eva Extra App says eight days so EIGHT DAYS IT IS!

makes sense given japanese timezones

how long does it generally take for weebs to translate these things, and how difficult will it be to get a good stream?

Q took forever to get a camrip and even then it was piss low quality; however that was eight years ago and if Heaven’s Feel is anything to go by, there should be camrips of important clips at least in the first week.

Hopefully we’ll get a US theatrical release within one to two months like Heaven’s Feel also.

DVD/BD release is a whole separate beast altogether.

Interesting fact of the day:

In EoE, you can see in quite good detail how the MPE's tear apart Unit 02. This is just what I was able to screencap but supposedly there's more in the small amount of time in the shot as well.

Spoiler

The titles to the two hidden tracks in Utada's One last Kiss album were leaked early. Da Capo means "repeat from the beginning" in music. IMHO there was absolutely no reason why these titles needed to be hidden when the album was announced.

Khara has announced that at midnight, March 8th, they will upload the first 12 minutes and 10 seconds (the AVANT 1 preview) of 3.0+1.0 to their YouTube channel.

Supposedly the additional two minutes is the entirety of Avant 2. I don't know how to feel about this since Avant 2 was repurposed cut content from Q's missing Part D. The D Part was supposed to provide a sudden quick end to the series in the event that Anno didn't want to continue with a fourth film to end things. Rewriting an entire quarter of a film to only two minutes has me a bit nervous, but at the same time Avant 2 has been one of the most requested content from the final movies from fans considering we don't even have a 3.0 CRC yet and the storyboards were never included in the storyboard book.

I'm sure it would've been far longer than two minutes, there's a lot that has been discussed on the matter of the D-Part. I'll let an Evageeks poster describe it better:

https://forum.evageeks.org/post/898658/30s-Missing-D-Part-and-UntilYouComeToMe-Theory/#898658

Quote
When I think about the narrative structure he's been sticking to for the four movies, it's actually more than just a Jo-Ha-Kyu, it's what's called Kishotenketsu where the first three parts of Jo, Ha and Kyu are more or less the same but the 4th portion is a journey or Michiyuki that usually has less dialogue than the rest. The theorized D part, being a long journey, would fit in with the 4-part structure perfectly well, and it might have even been capped off with a quick conclusion to Shinji's story with him meeting an adult Toji, Hikari and Kensuke and the Evangelion story coming to some kind of an end.

Why did Anno get rid of the D part he'd been working on - and for which Shiro Sagisu almost certainly brought in his arrangement of Londonderry Air (Danny Boy)? [Begin Speculation] I'm guessing it's because Anno made a decision to keep working on Evangelion no matter what. Had his depression really gotten the better of him, he might have pushed to finish the D part and conclude Evangelion's story with Shinji finding a place of happiness with the adult Toji, Kensuke and Hikari, leaving the entire Misato vs Gendo, Wille vs Nerv conflict to some kind of rushed, offscreen conclusion summing up all the things that would've otherwise gone into 3.0 + 1.0. That he made up his mind not to make up the D part meant that he had decided to commit himself to another movie, and he's done just that! [/End Speculation]

So the very fact that we're missing the D part may be a good thing, because we get a whole movie in the bargain. Had he finished the D part, we may have had a rushed and unsatsifying "goodbye, all of Evangelion" back in 2012.

Yet again, all of this is pure speculation on my part, but I have the feeling that the missing D part is a good thing!

Movie Theaters have their distributed masters of the film, have released their show-time schedules, and tickets have gone on sale with Japanese Twitter users posting about how they have their tickets/seats reserved.

We are past the point of no return. The movie will officially be released in less than 72 hours.

People who go see the movie in theaters tomorrow can purchase a small 80-page pamphlet containing tons of spoilers. Just like what they did with the 3.0 pamphlet that was available back in 2012.

"flaming nipple chops"-Your host, the man they call Ghost.

To say, 'nothing is true', is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, 'everything is permitted', is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.

So Khara streamed the first 12 minutes and ten seconds of 3.0+1.0 on their official YouTube channel. It was the AVANT1 Paris preview and AVANT2 after all. AVANT2 is basically just an openings credits crawl with the three pilots wandering through the Tokyo-3 wasteland, pretty much all the scenes of the pilots wandering in the trailers are in AVANT2.

FURTHERMORE: The animated short "Until You Come To Me" that released all the way back in 2014 had scenes in it that are directly IN AVANT2. AVANT2 truly is the missing D-Part, or more accurately, a one minute montage of Shinji's wandering in the D-Part. Here's "Until You Come To Me" for anyone interested:

YouTube


So even if you missed Khara's stream, just watch the first few minutes of this video and congratulations, you've pretty much seen AVANT2/the mssing D-Part.
