Evangelion

It has been a long time since we heard the Evangelion anime. In a interview with UK Anime Network, animator director Takeshi Honda mentions that they have recently started to work on the final Evangelion movie this October. In his words, this is what he said:

“We’re actually working on the new Evangelion film right now. We’re working hard and it’ll come out eventually, so thanks for all of your patience – please continue to be patient, because it’s going to be the last episode.”

In a comment in a another interview, he is hoping that this last film will officially conclude Evangelion and also retire. It is hard for him to draw as he gets older.

In old news, anime director Hideaki Anno mentioned that he will be doing the last Evangelion once he has finished with the movie Shin Godzilla.

  1. When I found out the news of the final Evangelion film that day I flipped out. My day–no, my week–ooh, no, my YEAR was made!! Looking forward to Anno’s final bow to his reinvented masterpiece that’s been a long time coming!

    • With this news, I am looking forward to the final film. Let’s hope the last film will earn the respect Evangelion deserves. Maybe once this is done, hopefully we can get a remaster collection of the classic anime.
