Evangelion remake coming out
Reply With Quote   #1

So, Gainax is remaking Evangelion. It will be four movies, 1. First Arc, 2. Middle Arc, 3. End Arc, 4. Finale Arc.

The first arc comes out Summer 2007. It's all new animation and a remade story. I don't have much information that's not rumors to give other than that.

OK, now when they say "remade story" do they mean it won't be a souless void of depression and spite collapsing upon itself in one large gaping wound? Can shinji not be a pansy? Can rei have a soul for more than three minutes without it being torn away from her thus making me even more depressed? Find out next week, same eva time, same eva channel.

Almost as much as statesman.. *sigh*

No you just get to see them depressed in better animation quality and redone wording! :P.

Please be the manga version of these characters. Less Asuka, Rei with a semblance of personality, a lot less whiny Shinji...so much good could be done

I was going to let Toprem post it himself, but since he didn't... gonna post it for him. This is a quote from Toprem's post.

The title for the new film series is "Evangelion Shin Gekijou Ban", it will consist of 4 parts with the first part arriving in Japanese theaters in early summer, 2007. Staff include General Supervisor: Hideaki Anno, Director: Tsurumaki Kazuya , Character Design: Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, Mecha Design: Ikuto Yamashita, Animation Production: Khara (Color) Studio. The scenario of the 1st part will be written by Hideaki Anno with storyboard by Shinji Higuchi. Key points of a supposed interview which may or may not appear in the forthcoming edition of Newtype attributed to Toshimichi Ohtsuki of King Records have also been circulating.

According to that information:
-The content is quite different though the time base of the story is the same as the original TV series.
- It will be a remake, however, it is not a re-creation but a "new work".
- The approach will be different than what Tomino-san did with the Gundam Z New Translation films, there will apparantly be a large amount of new material.
- Even if the TV series has not be seen, the viewer will be able to enjoy it. Though the content becomes easy, it is not redundant to those already familiar with the series.
- The technique that purposely scatters difficult words and phrases will not be used any longer.
- As an antithesis to current animation industry segments. It is an attitude on the production side to pull the act in the age that started from Eva.
What I take that to mean is they intend to simplify the story, and make it more sensical. I think they will change a lot of things, Shinji's character seems like an obvious place to begin.

I thought Evangelion was an excellent series and 'End of Evangelion' was great, though I didn't like 'Death and Rebirth'. I could see the logic in releasing the remastered platinum series in 5.1 surround sound, but all these other things seem to be money grabs.

I think I soured on all 'new' Evangelion things while reading an issue of Newtype a while back. Near the back of the magazine I saw a full page ad for an Asuka figurine dressed in a maid's outfit (here's the figurine. The call it 'loli/goth' but it looks more like 'french maid').

I still really like the old series, but I'm weary of new stuff.

Just wondering, why did that figure sour you on Evangelion? I own that figure (the only Asuka figure I've ever liked and bought, aside from the Grimrock set.)

While they make royalties, Gainax doesn't make the figures themselves. The goth loli Asuka and Rei are doujin creations. Just wondering. Also, that figure is most definitely Goth Loli, which is different from the maid outfit. Goth Loli is a fashion style that's VERY popular in Japan. Saturdays in Shibuya will show tons of girls dressing up as Goth Loli. There's several magazines about the fashion alone, the most popular being EGL (Elegant Goth Loli) and it has it's own sub-fashions. For more info, see this wiki.

I'm far more forgiving of the figures that are created by doujin groups then mass-manufactured. I am also weary of Gainax milking the series, but I personally find this to be potentionally worthwhile. Depending on how they do it, of course.

Heh best Asuka figure I ever seen. But the photo in the link doesn't really do it justice.

I think it soured me because it took Asuka out of Evangelion and used her in a manner completely unrelated to Evangelion; they just used the Evangelion name to sell the product.

Edit: I should say I think the figurine itself looks fine, it's just not in character with who she is any more than putting Motoko Kusanagi in the same outfit.

Don't most figures from series do different types of styles that don't relate to the anime? I dunno if thats true just a question .

Ah, I see. I'm a big doujin fan so I'm used to seeing various anime characters acting somewhat out of character. I think it's part of the charm, seeing the mostly tsun tsun Asuka be all out dere dere, or Shinji acting manly for a change, etc. In this case, gothloli Asuka feels like "Here's Asuka, if she was a regular Shibuya girl! Outside of Evangelion."

All a matter of preference.


EDIT: Sollion's question.
Not most figures, but a lot of figures do.

A few new details regarding the new Eva project, Evangelion Shin Gekijou Ban from the October, 2006 Japanese edition of Newtype Magazine:
- The cover illustration featuring characters Ayanami Rei Nagisa Kaworu is by Shunji Suzuki. Suzuki had worked on the Shin Seiki Evangelion TV series as chief animator and on the End Of Evangelion movie as an animation director. Although not officially connected by name to the new project as yet, his image appearing on the Newtype cover would suggest involvement.
- Images released so far depict Rei Ayanami in observably more provacative and animated moods than before. How will she change? The silent and submissively naturered character with her trademark blue hair and style made her an all time fan favorite of otaku everywhere, catapulting her to the top of the monthly Animage character poll for many, many issues.
- From Toshimichi Ohtsuki's interview: Just before this new project started up director Hideaki Anno rewatched the entire original television series back to back. Ohtsuki relays that he heard Anno say for the first time: "Eva is interesting, I did not think it was so interesting (laughing)." The comment almost broght Ohtsuki to tears.
- Ohtsuki goes on to say that it is true Eva has become a smashi hit animation. However, it's success caused misunderstanding and disarray has arisen in the animation field because of it. An overproduction of inferrior works was caused.
- Ohtsuki says the Newtype cover image featuring Rei and Kaworu symbolizes the new movie project. Japanese fans have questioned whether this is a hint at Rei And Kaworu's possibly being at the center of the new story or getting expanded focus in the course of the story of the films.
New information on Evangelion.

Being popular in japan doesn't make it less gay. In fact the exact opposite is true.

Stumbled across a doujin for Eva that pretty much makes it go from 'overrated' to 'awesome'.

Re-Take by Kimigabuchi (warning: ero content)

I highly suggest checking it out. The story takes place after the end of the anime, yet still manages to not only make sense, but be a new ending that isn't stupid.

With the DVD release comes the fansubs... no comments on it yet? I'm surprised...

My perspective is from that of someone who LOVED the original Eva (original ending and all). Of course, there are potential spoilers as I work under the assumption that you've seen the anime, so read on at your own risk.

SPOILER:

I was really surprised by how much I liked it. When I first heard about it and how they were trying to make it "easier" to understand and such, I was kind of disappointed, but the first movie at least, manages to be just as good as the original series. Most of the movie is actually really similar to the anime; they take a lot of scenes from the anime and basically splice them into the movie. In fact, the first completely "new" scene I noticed was like a half hour into the movie. From then on, though, they start adding more changes (usually just slight changes in dialgue and such). If you thought Shinji was overly whiney in the original anime, well, that didn't change much for most of the movie. Its not until the fifth angel (fourth angel in the anime- they changed the ordering of the angels apparently; we'll find out how they reconcile that in the later movies, it seems) that they start adding a lot of new stuff. The new version of the fifth angel itself is pretty cool- I like it a lot more than the original.

*major spoilers in the next paragraph*
However, they didn't actually change much of the story. There are two main things about the story so far that they've changed, but I'm not sure how much I like the changes. The first is that Katsuragi shows Shinji Lillith really early compared to when he finds out in the anime. I guess they're just trying to force Shinji into becoming more "manly" with this change. The second and more important change is that they're obviously forcing a Shinji/Rei relationship. In the anime, their relationship was much less clear- Shinji and Asuka's relationship was much more "normal" in the anime. It will be interesting to see if they change that and replace it with a Shinji/Rei pairing.


In any case, I thought it was really good. Utada Hikaru's ED fit well, too, I thought (better than the original Fly Me to the Moon ED), both lyrically and melodically.

Spoiler tags are [ spoiler ] [ /spoiler ]. --Stalk

Bumping this thread, as I finally got around to watching 2.22 in Blu-Ray.

Gorgeous movie, easily one of the best looking anime films I've seen (I'd say prettier than 5 Centimeters Per Second on Blu-Ray, which is high praise coming from me).

The actual movie itself was a fun watch, although it has been AGES since I've last watched the Eva series so trying to remember what they changed and what was the same was interesting. Their usage of scenes from the original series, but changed to fit the "new" story was pretty cool.

Course, who knows how long it'll be until 3.0 comes out, sigh.

I just don't like downloading huge files that might set off any warning bells, same reason why I didn't grab the 220GB MAME CHD torrent yet. I also don't have a lot of room left on the drive I store movies and the like to, not if I go downloading huge files like that anyway. That being said, risking it from a public place right now, 8GB 1080p rip popped up yesterday.

edit: ugh, terrible speeds. Think I might cancel this and wait for a better site.

edit 2: Ugh, great, much like some of the Hellsing Ultimate episodes, this isn't playing right. It said on the page "coreavc 3.0.1 won't work properly." but doesn't go into any detail on how to get it to work, which I assume is my problem since I did the stuff to get 10bit crap to play when I went through this with Hellsing Ultimate. Great...

edit 3: Downloaded latest version of KMPlayer and its working now. Ugh @ KMP switching over to some terrible downloader method of installing.
