Yes or No?

No Rateru, Devilman wasn't that important for the development of Evangelion. We told you already
>>
>>3598065
Lots of things sold out in minutes
>>
>>3598082
I mean, this is her third doujin and she STILL can't predict the correct quantity. Her first took almost a month, her second was gone in under a week, and now she is surprised the stock didn't even last 24 hours. She is really bad at this.
>>
>>3598083
Wasn't she in another fandom before this? Some shounen sports shit one.

Idolmaster. Seriously.
>>
>>3598085
Idolmaster has boys??
>>
>>3598086
Apparently it's called SideM.
>>
>>3598083
Well as you said, the last one took a week, maybe she was expecting something around that time. Besides, weren't there nip fujos that just moved on from nge because of the ending too? I could understand if she was unsure because of that, at least it was pre order for the event?
>>
>>3598089
>Besides, weren't there nip fujos that just moved on from nge because of the ending too?
Some did, but overall the numbers have only increased. It's not a boom like after Q, but still a strong increase. For example for months they were practically raiding suriga-ya's stock. Someone in early march dropped their entire collection of 90s doujins and even that was gone in days.
>>
>>3598092
I wonder if it's been like that for other Eva ships or just Kawoshin
>>
>>3598093
Good question. I'm single fandom so I rarely interact with or watch the others.
>>
>>3598092
>the numbers have only increased
I feel like this is only because of the type of community the japanese kawoshin fandom is, like, if it were for Rebuild alone then you have nothing to work with after the story ends in 3.0+1.0, other than making stuff based on new merch like the "wedding" art. For Q you had "We'll meet again" to keep you waiting for the last movie so of course there was more hype let's say
>>
>>3598099
>you have nothing to work with after the story ends in 3.0+1.0
I don't know about that, I've seen a lot of doujins/art of them in the Neon Genesis world working at the same company or living together
>>
>>3598100
And that is mostly because of their headcanon of Mari being manga Mari and in love with Yui. That's a thin thread. The rest obviously don't give a fuck and when they move on it'll be because some other series caught their attention
>>
>>3598099
>you have nothing to work with after the story ends in 3.0+1.0
Kek, they manage it just fine. Japanese women have an unhealthy obsession with office love stories. It's honestly nauseating.
>>
>>3598103
Regardless the movie gave them a lot to work with in terms of making stories for fics and doujins just based on the fact Kaworu and Shinji are both alive and in the same town
>>
>>3598105
And if anything they are probably writing more stories based on canon than ever. The movie ending gave them the banal boring mundane AU 90% of the doujins and fics always used. If I had a buck for every fic where Shinji, ace of the sales department at NERV falls in love with Kaworu, grandson of the owner of the multinational company SEELE....

Now that you mention it, yeah it's fucking crazy how much nips love AUs. Even with 3.0 I think I saw just as much doujins of Kaworu/Shinji in a normal world going to school together as I did with doujins taking place during their time at Nerv together.

They do, it's insane how little they want to work with canon. The most popular fanfictions are iirc without exception AU stories. And it's nothing new, even the EoE Afters were the same shit. Everyone returns from tang and you get endless high school/社会人 drama.
>>
>>3598118
I sort of get why though, writing a story during the events of NGE or rebuild means having to work with Eva's very inconsistent lore and come up with fitting scenarios, mech battles, etc.
>>
>>3598124
Yeah that's true. Actually, now I remember one fanfic that did it. I'm not sure if it had shipping or not because that... thing had the length of 10 telephone books and I'm not a masochist. It was one of the most autistic things I have ever witnessed.

New version of the movie with animation corrections will start airing June 12th. Similar to how 3.333 was.

What kind of info?
>>
>>3598141
Staff commentary, interviews that shed further light on movie context, etc
>>
>>3598142
The Newtype interviews. But it's hard to say much about them since we don't have, or at least I don't think we have scans.
>>
>>3598132
I don't normally mock random twitter comments, but lel at that comment bitching about no LAS wedding.
>I thought that in this movie we were going to have the first couple from different countries but I see that Japan is not prepared for this, what a pity
This is the funniest thing I have read all week.
>>
>>3598147
Someone should tell that dude that Mari is from England lmao
>>
>>3598150
Just tell him that Asuka was born from an interracial marriage.
>>
>>3598142
Does this count? >>3594929
>>
That page count is low even for a doujin, how much story they can tell with it? Watch it be the cut Misato, Ritsuko, and Kaji drinking in a bar scene and nothing else.
>>
>>3598159
Idk, they might want to milk Commander Nagisa for how popular he turned out to be
>>
>>3598160
How popular? We don't even get that much fanart of it anymore. It was almost like a flavor of the week.
>>
Between Iseki and Maeda what are the odds that we get a new Kawoshin art?
>>
>>3598159
>page count is low
It sounds like it'll be written info with some illustrations here and there
>>
>>3598161
Because it was all you could draw at the time since he was shown in a new promotional video. Then when it was safe to post spoilers more frecuently they just focused on his instrumentality scene
>>
>>3598159
36 pages definitely doesn’t sound like enough to go over every character for the 14 years that happened

This is a massive cope lmao. A single fanservice drawing is not a confirmation of anything especially considering Rei is there too despite being confirmed perma dead in the final chapter. Contrast that with Rebuild's ending of Kaworu happy and alive with his own life. He gets the far better deal and is actually a character of his own agency unlike the dude who's feelings were fucking Rei's in the first place.
>>
>>3598718
>massive cope lmao
Take it up with Sadamoto leaving that as his bookend.

Much less than claiming Anno pulling a Yahweh and making Kaworu like Ryo in violence jack is a fitting end.

Incidentally, Ogata saying her Shinji got left behind just makes it more hilariously like violence jack. Since you got a salaryman stranger, and the child left behind in the red shore

Guess the salary man is either an imposter or Shinji’s soul broke into little shards scattered across the multiverse
>>
>>3598723
>Take it up with Sadamoto leaving that as his bookend.
The bookend is Shinji walking into the snow not knowing ANYONE or any of the events of the manga, Karl was literally not remembered by him. Nothing he did mattered in the end. How the fuck is that a happy ending for him in comparison to Qworu that got everything he wanted?
>>
>>3598730
>Qworu that got everything he wanted?
Shinji who he vowed to protect broke into little soul shards, scattered across universes

Qworu is amnesiac, powerless, stuck in a universe where there are still gods (Mari)tampering with the fabric of life and who he is. His last memories before he died and was reborn was that he’s a failure. The person he’s closest to might not even exist. It’s literally violence jack’s prologue.

>walking into the snow not knowing ANYONE
He’s literally meeting all his old friends again (Kensuke, Asuka) and making friends, on a better foot. So yeah, not a stretch to take the closing artwork in context of that. And ending offering hope versus one of hopelessness, failure and loss.

Shinji literally doesn't remember anything in the Manga ending, he's practically an entirely different person. Not only does that make the whole of the Manga's story pointless, but also Karl's existence pointless. The one thing Karl wanted he didn't get. An utter failure to the very end and not even a well written character.

Ishida stayed away from final because he thought it a trainwreck. So take it up with him about who’s badly written.

>Why has Shinji been left behind then?
He hasn't you retard. Shinji grew up and is an adult in the ending, that's why he has the DSS Choker in the first place. Because he remembered everything.
>He got Shinji while he lived.
He got REJECTED by Shinji at every single turn while he lived. Not a single trace of affection his way. Instead he had to listen to Shinji continue to simp for Rei like the cuck he is.
>And he’s reborn
He's not. It's not shown in the Manga anywhere that he was reborn, a single fanservice illustration is just that. It's not canon and never will be.

>>3598758

I’d rather Ogata and the fan artist interpretation than a terribly written movie. At least those make it mildly interesting. Remaking the world required using him/leaving him behind in the world.

You’re coping, Ishida barely participated in final or recorded new lines. He even criticized the plot. Doesn’t seem at all like he thought it wasn’t terribly written.

Honestly, better this way than remembering everything and then leaving everyone behind for Mari. And after they emphasize Anime/Qworu had to devote himself to Shinji's happiness in multiple timelines and died. Karl got off way easier and people can headcanon post manga how they want in the new world without the narrative being ruled by Anno's therapy about leaving Eva so Shinji has to leave everyone and grow up.
>>
>>3598793
>without the narrative being ruled by Anno's therapy about leaving Eva so Shinji has to leave everyone and grow up.
Not one person came out and said this so far, so for the time being Rebuild plays by the same headcanon rules as the manga. Hell, Sadamoto flat out said that Asuka at the end means fucking nothing, but LASfags both nip and western still insist it's a LAS ending. So, you know.
>>
>>3598793
>then leaving everyone behind for Mari
But the whole point of the last sequence is everyone finding their own place to belong and mutually parting ways. You can call it contrived and retarded that they have to part ways in the first place, but that's still what it is. There's no leaving or abandoning.
>And after they emphasize Anime/Qworu had to devote himself to Shinji's happiness in multiple timelines and died.
And then he's saved from that fate in this movie and gets to finally live his own life and find his own happiness. Yes, that's an immensely better ending than Karl being dead and gone forever.
>>
>>3598800
Rebuild explicitly kills every single Shinji ship with the ending. Manga sticks to the status quo of leaving it up in the air in a total reset with some fanservicey art of all the kids together. Remains to be seen if Khara will do the same for salary man Shinji but I don't think it's likely given the framing of that final scene and Anno's relief to be free of eva. There would be no reason to have him flirty with the girl made to "destroy eva" and not even waving at Kaworu and Rei or showing more acknowledgment between them for a second.
>>
>>3598812
So you think it's a bad ending because your ship didn't happen? Lmao.
>Manga sticks to the status quo of leaving it up in the air
How is this a good thing? It just shows Sadamoto pussying out, at least Anno has the balls to destroy Eva like he set out to do.
>>
>>3598802
So you are happy with QKaworu finding his place to belong on a farm as a third wheel to Kaji + Misato or with Rei after being cucked by Mari and having multiple lives and sacrifices solved by a 2 minute talk? As weird as the manga ending was I don't think it can compare to Rebuild's spitefulness.
>>
>>3598812
Here's the thing, anon. You say there is no reason, but that does not change the fact that nothing explicit happens in the ending, and nothing is explained. What you say is your interpretation, and not the universal truth written in the stars that will smite you with divine judgement if you deviate from it. Thus until this changes, they can headcanon whatever, which is literally what they are already doing.
>>
>>3598818
I am happy that Kaworu was finally given the free will to choose his own happiness. Kaworu is the one who makes the decision to live on the farm with Kaji and Misato, Kaworu is the one who chooses to form a bond with Rei. His happiness is genuine, he's happy saying goodbye to Shinji, and he's happy to look forward with his own life. I'm not saying it's a well written ending by any means, but it's still objectively a better ending than Karl being dead and forgotten forever.
Again, don't try and slurp Sadamoto's cock and his terrible writing just to try and spite people who prefer Rebuild.

>>
h- hey guys wanna hear about my kaworu timeloops fanfiction?
>>
>>3598823
That all sounds nice on paper for him and is something I'd like if it were actually shown and developed and seemed like it was planned. But that is not the case with Rebuild making him more Shinji-centric until Anno realizes he needs to give him a semblance of an arc/screentime cause they have been marketing him hard for Rebuild. Until the reset ending I still see the manga as much more cohesive and true to what it wanted to do and get across instead of using the characters as props and stand-ins for the author, but worse than before. Rebuild is absolutely directionless. The crc confirms how many different tracks the people involved were and Anno admitted he had no idea what to do after 3.0. I don't think Sadamoto ever lost the plot so bad until it came to the finale but the bar is on the floor here.
>>
>>3598832
I just find it dubious that sacrificing yourself for the wish means permadeath, but not transforming into the spear that carries the wish out. It would also take the impact of Misato's sacrifice away if it was reversed just 5 minutes after she made it, though it's not like I expect much from this writing.
>>
>>3598832
Not him but literally how the fuck
>>
>>3598838

>>3598827
That's a headcanon while onscreen Mari and Shinji get a romantic ending sequence where Shinji flirts with her and they run off hand in hand. If that was with any other girl or even Kaworu would you seriously argue it was not a pairing end?
>>
>>3598840
It is a widely held belief that the final scene of End of Evangelion represents something other than a disgusting murder attempt where Shinji tries to choke the living shit out of Asuka.
>>
>>
>>
>>3598840
I'm not even that guy I just find it hilarious you're calling us out on headcanons when you're the one who thinks Karl got "reborn without any suffering" because of one fucking fanservice drawing. It's as retarded as Asushinfags thinking that one calendar picture is canon.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>3598836
Not those anons but by what you are saying, Rebuild is still better than the manga.
Rebuild tries to give an arc to these characters and carry the story to an end, while in the manga literally everything that happened means nothing because the world is reset in a way were not even Shinji gets an ending that comes from whatever he did before. It all goes back to square 1. Also all that about Anno just doing this because of the marketing is the same as Sadamoto adding Kaworu to his story only because he's a popular character. What another similatiry? Anno forced himself to finish this shit story jut like Sadamoto forced himself to finish his shit manga. Both of them were sick of working on their products.
Karl's arc ends in nothing, he wanted to be remembered and that doesn't happen because everything is retset. Qworu wanted Shinji to find his happiness and Shinji is going to do that at the end of this movie.

For the hundredth time, I'm not saying Rebuild is a stellar ending. It has a lot of problems and should've dedicated far more time to developing all of its non-Shinji characters including Kaworu. But as it stands it's still a far better ending than the Manga because at least it actually SAYS something. A meta message of moving on from Eva is still better than the Manga ending which has no message at all. An ending of Kaworu living with Kaji or Rei and making the decision to seek out his own happiness beyond Shinji is a better ending than Karl being dead and forgotten having achieved nothing. Kaworu and Shinji mutually finding closure with each other and parting ways is better than Shinji forgetting Karl.
As it stands imo:
TV End > EoE >>>>>>>>>> Rebuild >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> shit > Manga
Don't defend literal garbage to try to stick it to an ending which is a bit less shitty.
>>3598837
Yeah I agree, it's a copout to imply Misato and others can come back to life. There's no permanency to anything nor any real consequences to any of Shinji's decisions.

>A meta message is still better than no message at all

Damn, you must really hate NGE and EoE's endings then.
>>
>>3598866
I am not 100% satisfied with EoE, that's for sure. But nah, the meta didn't hijack either of those endings. They are self-contained and deliver their message within the bounds of the story.
>>
>>3598867
Shin Eva still conveys the message of growing up and putting others before oneself, the moving on from Eva meta doesn't come in until the very very last scene. You can argue the message isn't a very good one or that it's poorly portrayed, but it's still something over the Manga's nothing.
>>

The meta aspect begins as soon as they enter the minus universe, that is much longer than just the final scene. I'm not defending the manga here, I removed your references to Rebuild and Sadamoto's crap because I was arguing with your point in general. Having some kind of message is not inherently better than having no message at all. And I think it would be an understatement to call the value of making that message one which examines the work as fiction, rather than a message that works within the fiction, especially when it happens out of the blue at the end of a tetralogy, subjective.

>I removed your references to Rebuild and Sadamoto's crap because I was arguing with your point in general
You were literally arguing Sadamoto's ending is better than Rebuild, unless you're not the original person I was replying to and if that's the case you should say so instead of barging into our conversation like a cunt.

I am not the Karlfag you've been arguing with until now. Sorry about the confusion.
>>
>>3598874
In that case, yes:
>Having some kind of message is not inherently better than having no message at all
I 100% agree with this, I find the meta bullshit in Rebuild in extremely poor taste and an excuse to cover up blatantly lazy writing. I was only arguing on the basis that even with all its flaws Rebuild still manages to be a better ending than the Manga's and Qworu is handled far better than Karl. Of course that says more about how bad Sadamoto's writing is than anything else.

>>3598875
Completely agreed with everything.

>make Shinji both a girl and a boy at the same time

Tbh merely having boobies while being a male character makes Ryo and Go Nagai angels cooler than kaworu
>>
>>3598860
>Don't defend literal garbage to
Too bad Sakamoto and others thought they acted in literal garbage

Imagine hiring an Alist for a shoddily written character
>>

Ah, she finished it. This was very nice.
>>
>>3598882
Not that anon but funny that you think Sakamoto thought of this as anything other than a paycheck
>>
>>3598880
What does giving him boobs because the author didn't want to commit to him having a male body (and because booba in general) in that one have anything to do with Chika making Adult Vtuber Shinji have a girl avatar?
>>
>>3598880
Doesn't Ryo keep getting cucked by Miki in literally every spinoff Nagai shits out?
>>
>>3598880
Boobs on men is shit taste. Now having a vagina under your balls otoh has literally zero downsides.
>>
>>3598906
It works if they’re cute like Satan, your idea just sounds gross and unsanitary
>>
>>3598901
>in literally
Just devilman, and Ryo kills her for it.

She doesn’t exist in devilman lady at all or the sequels
