I’ve got a huge backlog of things to slog through so if you sent me something over the past few days and I haven’t gotten to it yet, I apologize profusely.
Angry Zen Minion John Smith sent along this awesome clip from EVANGELION 2.22 which premiered this past weekend at Katsucon. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make any of the showings. Well, its kind of a mixed bag. I was making money in the Artist Alley which is totally awesome. But I didn’t get to watch the shiny new EVA which is totally sad. I kinda wish they set up screenings for later in the evening for those of us who were working the show, but that’s not really a reasonable expectation.
Anyway, this new introduction of Asuka is kind of badass. And by kind of I mean FUCKING HOLY SHIT! I’ve been fairly skeptical about these new EVA movies because it feels like Gainax is milking a dead cow that’s been buried in a dung heap for years. But damned if this shit doesn’t look good. And it’s been so long since I saw the original that this fresh coat of paint looks like new stuff to me. Even though EVA is almost 16 years old now. Stupid teenager. Won’t move out of the damn house.
