Posted by LadyPSerenity in News Articles June 28, 2009 at 12:06:40 AM

There is a teaser at the end of the Evangelion:2.0 You Can (Not) Advance that reveals the next Evangelion film will be titled Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: Q quickening. (The full English title has yet to be given.) Khara anime studio are remaking Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime series into four theatrical films directed by Hideaki Anno.

The "Q" or "Kyu" in the third film's title is a wordplay in Japanese; the first three films' subtitles are the names for the three classical movements (Jo-Ha-Kyū or Introduction-Exposition-Climax) of traditional Japanese music such as gagaku and Noh.

The Otaku2 website posted an in-depth review of the second film with spoilers. The Mainichi Shimbun paper's Mantan Web section reports that about 800 fans lined up before the first public screening of Evangelion:2.0 at 8:00 a.m. at the Shinjuku Milano-za theater in Tokyo's Shinjuku ward. The theme song of the second film was revealed on Saturday to be "Beautiful World -PLANiTb Acoustica Mix-," a remix of Hikaru Utada's "Beautiful World" theme song for the first film (Evangelion:1.0 You Are (Not) Alone).

The Gigazine website notes that participating theaters offered a limited-edition combo set of popcorn in a Nerv bag (caramel-flavored at an extra charge) and a drink topped with an Asuka character figure. The official Evangelion movie retail website posted a list of other tie-in items, such as the Spear of Longinus paper knife. The Asahi Shimbun paper reports that actress Natsuki Katou appeared in a Nerv uniform on Saturday to promote the first day of general sales for the Evangelion SH-06A NERV mobile phone. There was a ceremony to mark the event at the Big Camera chain's main store in Yurakucho neighborhood. ~ Anime News Network
