So last night was the first television airing of the third Evangelion Rebuild movie, Evangelion 3.0. To accompany the momentous occasion Khara (the animation studio) had announced that they would be showing a preview for the next movie, Evangelion 4.0. As a dedicated Evangelion fan I was excited to see what they would do with the preview but instead we got Hideaki Anno’s masterful trolling instead. Instead of a short clip that depicted a little of what was going to happen in the fourth movie, Evangelion fans only got one image with the changed name of the movie.
Needless to say, I was disappointed with their showing. Though with Evangelion’s track record I should have seen something like this coming. Either way I am not too angry as long as they finish Evangelion 3.0+1.0 by the end of next year and it has new content. If they end up doing a recap and that is why they changed the name of the movie I will literally tear my hair out in frustration.
