Evangelion Movie 3: There Is (Now) a Trailer


It’s a fool’s game to guess what the fuck the third new Evangelion movie will be about, but this trailer gives us the best look so far. Basically, what we know is that we’re going to get 1) plenty of Pirate Asuka, Mari’s pink EVA Unit, at least a smattering of Kaoru flirting with Shinji, and, uh… some significantly awesome mecha action. I think I’m still going to prefer the TV series and it’s relentless deconstruction of the giant-robots-with-teenage-pilots genre when it’s all said and done, but I have to admit I’m seriously looking forward to seeing this anyways.
