Anno Hideaki Apologizes for Delay on Final Evangelion Film
It is almost four years since Evangelion 3.0 Q You Can (Not) Redo, and this past year Evangelion director Anno Hideaki has been working on the new upcoming Godzilla: Resurgence film.
During a press conference of the upcoming Godzilla film, press and audiences were asked not to bring up questions about Evangelion, but Anno opened up and brought up the topic himself.
“First of all, I would like to apologize. I have kept you waiting for the new Evangelion for a very, very long time. I am deeply sorry. To me, Evangelion is my soul; it is a work that scrapes off bits of my soul. The previous work, Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Q scraped me down until I wasn’t able to make anything anymore.” “I felt saved by the opportunity to work on Godzilla: Resurgence. Now I feel like I can continue working on Evangelion.”
