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 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.
Official runtime is 155 minutes. Two hours and thirty five minutes.
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
so those 2 minutes would serve as an alternate ending of sorts? huh
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!
