Finally Updated

After a long period of editing and re-writing, a process that probably took most of a year, Blue Rose is finished.  The version you see here, apart from any remaining tweaks for grammar, is the final version. 
Most of the changes between the version that I posted here last year and the current version are in writing style and grammar, as I tried very hard to tighten up the prose.  This story was originally in script format, so it took s...

Evangelion 2.0

Evangelion 2.0 You Will (Not) Advance has a firm release date of June 27th, 2009, nearly two years after 1.0 was released.  Let's hope that this release is at least as good as 1.0.

Evangelion 1.0 U.S. License

Funamation finally licensed the first EVA film for the US market, with an expected release date of October of 2009.  It wasn't a surprise that ADV, the distributor of the original TV series, didn't get the license, as they've fallen into hard times.

They've released almost no details regarding the release, so it's hard to know if their plan is just to bring it to video here, or if they're contemplating something larger, such as a limited-run wide screen releas...

The Blue Rose

Posted by godaironin on December 16, 2008 at 4:19 PM Comments comments (0)
After a considerable amount of effort, the re-write of BFOS is finished.  The story has been re-titled The Blue Rose, for reasons that will become obvious once you read the story. 

This was a significant re-working on the story.  While the basic plot remains the same as the original, I added many scenes, and worked in more background to all of the American characters to enhance the story, as ...

The following is a poem written by Megumi Hayashibara regarding her character in EVA, Rei Ayanami.  This was written during the making of the series, but more recently came to light.  If I can further source this, I'll update the post, but for now I thought it was worth including.

Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance

Posted by godaironin on November 4, 2008 at 3:03 AM Comments comments (0)
Chara (Hideki Anno's studio) has announced the title for the second EVA movie, and announced an "early summer" (June?) 2009 release date.  There's also a new poster.

They're really good about keeping us clueless on this, but Chara keeps telling us that there's a "new" story, not to mention the mysterious girl in the trailer (who's identified in the most recent DS EVA game as "Marie").  I just hope that they don't jump the shark with thi...

It's been a while since I've posted. At work I've had one of the busiest months ever, mostly as several customers converged at once and all placed orders.  This is good, at least we'll have a good Christmas this year.

Of course, as a result, the re-write has been slowed down a bit, but it's still ongoing.  I figure I'm about 75% done with it, and then it goes to Haru for editing.  I've added several new scenes as I expected, as well as expanded significantly on Patrick's ba...

Work in Progress

Life and work have been keeping me busy for this month, so no updates to the site since the last blog post.  Just to keep up with events:

1) There's a major story revision underway, with about six new or expanded scenes, nearly all of which are backstory for Patrick and Vance.  There's also a style revision for the dialogue, which many didn't like how it was handled, especially in the earlier chapters.  The plan was to finish by Oct 1, but because that's Wednesday, it's unl...

Evangelion 2.0

It's been over one year since Rebuild of EVA 1.0 premiered on the wide screen in Japan.  For an anime film, it did quite well both critically and at the box office, and when it was released on DVD in April, it became one of the top-selling DVDs in Japan.  It's been shown a few times at cons here in the states, but as of now there is still no official US license for the film.  ADV Films, the ones that brought EVA to the 'States, are now in dire financial straits, and no one else ha...

About EvaFics: after submitting the story, I got back negative input from their editors - apparently they weren't at all happy with the dialog style, and some other problems.  Given that I want the biggest readership for this thing, I'm happy to oblige them, so I am in the midst of another re-write and edit, mostly to "dress up" the dialog, much of which currently has a "script" style that reads more like a screenplay than a story. 

Things in my office are hectic, slow economy,...
