I’m a bit behind posting some stuff to the site. Mainly because I just started going to a new school (more on that soon) so I’ve been feeling a bit lazy. Anyway, that’s not what I wanted to talk about right now. So many emotions went through me when I heard that Neon Genesis Evangelion was making its return after more than a decade. Then I found out that the one and only Hideaki Anno will be the director and immediately felt more comfortable. I’m not the kind of guy, who thinks that something new added to a classic like Evangelion, will end up destroying my perfect image of my beloved show. If it sucks, then it sucks. It’s as simple as that. I’m a ridiculously huge fan of Evangelion and nothing, NOTHING I tell you, can ever mess with that. It’ll always be my favorite.
“Evangelion Shin Gekijou Ban” as the film series will be called will consist of 4 parts.
Here’s a translation of (some of it anyway) the article on Evangelion in the September NewType magazine:
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
The first movie will be released in theaters in Japan in 2007.
All in all from what I can understand, it will be easier to understand, which I guess… WILL take some of the fun out of it. I don’t like it when all the answers are given to you. That’s what makes Evangelion SO fun to watch: you discover something new every time; a new angle to the overall meaning of what’s going on. Oh yeah, and still can’t freaking wait for the live action version. Still can’t believe that WETA (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) will be working on it.
Unbelievable isn’t it?
After all this time new Evangelion to grace the anime world. . .
. . .That is if it’s any good. Although that can’t be said because anything with Eva in it is good. Will be the best new Evangelion since the ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion: Human Salvation Project’ was made *Snickers*. Appreciated more for its art than its story.
Perhaps it will follow the eventual storyline but with a more ‘Angelic Days’ setting. That would be a whole new type of Evangelion much enjoyed by true hardcore fans.
While spreading Evangelion and incorperating it into Western Culture is tempting, it makes me wonder how much of the Japanese unique innuendo will be lost through this method. English names to replace the Japanese ones? American Locations? Removal of the religious suggestion? A ‘Evangelion LITE - Americanized’? I’d rather not see the day such an ugly mark is inflicted upon the greatest anime series ever. If it maintains its original Evangelion aspect which makes it so beautiful then I shall appreciate and appraise the work. While the above focus on the negatives, the positives are greater so ten fold. A classic hit mesmerizing the audience will cause a renissance of Evangelion and the revolutionary discovery of anime in America and Europe.
Long Live Evangelion.Johnny Ignronce:
