An Illustrious Debut
A new trailer for Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance has debuted online. To see it click here. It will open in your default video player. It seems this movie will cover the series at least up to the incident with Eva Unit 04. I'm surprised it will go that far into the story. That's a lot of territory to cover in a single movie. I expect some alterations to the story will end up being made to compensate. We also see more of the newest character. We've already seen the unusual looking Eva Unit she'll be piloting. She has an unusual looking plug suit to match. Looks like her color will be green. Even her name is unusual. She's called Mari Illustrious Makinami. "Illustrious" might be the best middle name ever, except maybe for "Danger". I like her pigtail and glasses look. It sets her apart from Rei and Asuka. To top it off she'll be voiced by one of my favorite seiyuu, Maaya Sakamoto. Maaya Sakamoto and Megumi Hayashibara are voicing characters in the same movie? Awesome. Granted they did already do this before in a single episode of Cowboy Bebop.
