I refer you to Ouran High School Host Club where she specifically doesn't sing despite being the main character. Her appearances on the character songs are purely speaking parts as well.

I suspect the same for this show.

She's in the song, but I specifically remember her not singing being my major disappointment with the track. She just...talks.

ahh... yes, you are right... she just says a few lines...

But, we're talking about Eva ... money is serious business to Gainax and Khara.

Well, I think that if Gainax and co. had wanted to do so, they'd have done so long ago, because Hayashibara Megumi is also an accomplished singer, not to mention they can milk the Rei fanbase who has taken firm root, and not gamble on a new character's popularity like that.

And my other less rational reason, is that Kanno Youko is not on board. You decide if that is a sound reason or not.

Actually Megumi did sing. I remember versions of Fly to the Moon even in some disc of Megumi AFAIK.

Well i was thinking the same about Kanno... it can't be helped since the strong connection between Kanno and Maaya

That would be sick... Anno, Sadamoto and Kanno (well Sagisu is not an amateur though) working under the same roof, with megumi hayashibara, kotono mitsuishi and maaya sakamoto, seki tomokazu, koichi yamadera, takehito koyasu, etc... It's like "Anime's All Stars".

I see, guess I'm not nuts enough about EVA.

As for Sagisu, he does have some insert song experience(look at Bleach), so I guess you can put me in the 'maybe, just maybe' category.

All Stars indeed.

Hayashibara did indeed sing a few of the god knows how many versions of Fly Me To The Moon. As did Kotono Mitsuishi.

Guess they could have Maaya Sakamoto do one as well if this was a TV series, but with it being a movie, who knows. The ending theme is probably already reserved for Utada Hikaru.

Besides insert songs, Sagisu is a renown composer:
Fushigi no Umi no Nadia.
Kimagure Orange Road.
Eva (you pick the flavour )
KareKano
Abenobashi maho shotengai
Bleach

And about the "All Stars" thing, i forgot Masayuki and Tsurumaki... the amount of win working in rebuild of evangelion is amazing. Ah... not to mention another GIANT in Japan like Hikaru Utada...

I can imagine: "hey Anno-San, who will sing the ending?, Maaya-san or Hiki-san..."

It does sacrifice advantages a humanoid EVA would have (certainly not catching a bomb Angel with that), but otherwise superior in combat.
Yeah, I'm not doubting its superiority, but good god it looks awful.

I mean, Evas don't look particularly pretty, but at least they look kinda cool. The new one just looks retarded.

I bet it made Anno happy, though. His attempts at saying "You suck!" Japan has been thwarted by Sadamoto's drawing style.

Anno: I want Rei to be extremely creepy!

*Sadamoto draws Rei*

Anno: That's not creepy! And why does she have the biggest bust?!

Well, in Ouran, Haruhi was explicitly stated to be unable to sing. Hence, Sakamoto-san did not get the chance to flex her vocals. In "Maata Ashita", she only speaks (and giggles).

As for Rei, it is less of YS's art than the plotline itself. Anno-sensei, if you want us to be scared of Rei, don't make her the Woobie. Still, YS's art of her smiling in the manga is a Crowning Moment for me personally.

Me too... it was so... touchy... i can't even describe it with words... Sadamoto knows his job.

Sadamoto's art is always win. Now if only we could say the same about the schedule of his releases.

As for Utada Hikaru getting to play the next girl in Eva... has she ever even done a voice acting job? >_>

I actually think Mari's EVA is pretty cool and I think I know why its designed this way.

In the earlier trailers, this EVA was shown moving fast through a tunnel, I suspect a train tunnel.

See those two attachments on the shoulder plates? It could be for connecting to the overhead cables that supply power to trains. All EVAs need an electrical power source, if this EVA is running rails, an umbilical cable wouldn't be long enough, using overhead train cables is the perfect solution.

This EVA is customised for a railway battle.

Yep, but tactically, NERV never knows from where an angel can show up, so if that place has no railroads, what???.

But, OTOH, i can see some advantages of a wheeled unit in terms of stability and speed.

Mari's plug suit is as weird as her Eva. This is definitely not a NERV design imo...

Personally it seems kind of ridiculous (or at least ugly). The only thing that would make it more practical over the bipedal, humanoid legs is if it can anchor down onto the ground allowing the eva to use high power/ high recoil weaponry. I dont know how it can be faster than an eva running let along traversing over mountains or between buildings that we've already seen Evas will have to do.

It seems more suited for support from the rear line.
