Just thought I'd pop in with more Eva news. 3.0 or You can not redo has the movie poster on Facebook and Evageeks. It is merely the chosen color for this movie and text, so no new images, but it's nice to see things move alone nicely.
It's hard to believe that It'll be almost 4 years since the Rebuild project began and a lot of people were skeptical about its quality but I'm glad it has succeeded. It certainly is not the same Eva we once knew but I really look forward to each development.
The only thing I hope and wish for is more news on the Live Action movie. It is supposedly not completely dead but it might as well be effectively dead. With the release of the new Kenshin live action movie this year and the new OVA retelling the Kyoto arc, there may be hope for the Eva movie if this succeeds. I guess time will tell.
who is the pilot for unit 8 and with unit 2 going to asuka what's mari makinami going to have?
That's a great question, although based on 2.22 movie rules, there can be only 3 active units per region. One of the three pilots will have to sit out of combat most likely, but that remains to be seen.
I also apologize for not responding sooner. I'll try to be faster next time.
Also, I almost missed it, but today (Feb. 20) marks the 8th anniversary of the EFH. I hope that others pick up the discussion when 3.0 comes out this year because I intend to keep the thread going and alive to the best of my ability.
3.0 has a lot of ground to cover, I believe. Many characters just didn't get their fair share in 2.0 and even the ones that did were met with some developmental blocks, namely Misato and I'd even say Asuka too.
Rei was more central to the theme that Rebuild seems to be going for so it wasn't surprising that she was the focus but I agree: they should've been a bit more broad.
