So, the first Eva 5 don't exist anymore and also, the Moon Eva is the six.

I'm very excited to see the Eva from the moon in action. It makes everything completely different. If he was in the original series, they would never loses the longinus lance. Perhaps he's a flying one...

The new design is... weird. But, hey, it's Eva.

Well I'm kinda split there. If they're going through the trouble to introduce a new pilot character then yeah she'd better have a decent amount of screentime and development, which would mean her role in this movie should be more than just a cameo.

But that also kinda conflicts with my wishes to see some of the other characters.
Kaworu for one is a character who's supposed to get more screentime in Rebuild due to how little he did in the original series despite being such an important character.
And then there's the fact that they need to properly introduce Asuka and Kaji in 2.0 as well.

Really hope they can do it all without really shafting anybody. >_>

They can cover a lot since they're skipping a lot of Angels. Remember in the first movie, the total count is lower now.

Personally, I think the movies are testing grounds. If sales are good, there COULD be a full-fledged series in the future.

Well there's always that too. Japan actually finally letting go of Evangelion is indeed rather unlikely to happen.

True that. Just hope they choose which ones to skip wisely, because the battles against some of them contain good moments for certain characters.

Well, half the blame can be put on Gainax. Given their experimental nature, they need a few cash cows as backup in case the experimental series bombed.

When's the last time their own stuff failed, though? Note I'm not counting their adaptations like Kare Kano or Hime.

If memory serves me well, before it got famous, Eva was a money burner. Hence, the whole issue about the last 2 episodes of the main series, and the movies. In this aspect, it's like the original Mobile Suit Gundam, which wasn't an instant hit either.

Evan didn't have rumors of corrupt business-men and Evangelion being a planned failure for tax-loop money (being arrested for actual tax evasion didn't help disprove this)

Eva was a money burner also in that it's a pretty explicit show for something that replaces the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles timeslot. This was like replacing Power Rangers for Black Lagoon at the time.

Although Eva was popular enough to warrant a completed movie ending, while Gundam needed 3 compilation movies before it got up and running.

For Gundam, it's the model kits. The best ones are not only expensive, but an exercise in art and patience.

I do admit Gainax has a far easier Merch path. Sunrise has to design a new Gundam, put it on TV for 50 episodes, and sell model kits of different grades, de-assemble them, and put instructions.

Gainax puts a Rei Ayanami figure and that pays this month's electric bills.

Essentially, from guessing, it's made for all-terrain and has speed advantage compared to the other EVA's. It has default equipment of a lance (And if it's a mass-produced Lance of Longius, that's all it needs) and is built for jousting.

It does sacrifice advantages a humanoid EVA would have (certainly not catching a bomb Angel with that), but otherwise superior in combat.

I don't know why, but I find this deliciously and hilariously ironic for some reason.

It's a mantis on wheels

Who said eva's were limited to just biological humanoids?

More importantly, I hope there isn't another woman's soul inside this model.

I think the term you're looking for is not "ironic", but "truthful".

Mari plus Maaya's voice is win... i think that it will be a damn war between fanboys (Asuka's, Mari's, Rei's, etc)

And... Being Maaya in the cast, i think that she will be singing some song... which is double win.

That's an interesting point. I've seen discussions over the years about how Evas couldn't be equipped with wings because the pilot would have to be able to comprehend how to move a body that flies. The same could be said of the new model... Unless there's some convenient explanation like "it interprets her mental commands to walk into a speed and direction to roll."
