  1. Rejoice for Eva!!! I’m really surprised they snagged the movies too—it makes sense though, as they truly complete the series. As for Bebop, I’m cautiously optimistic. I’d hate to shut it down without even seeing a preview or something. Heck, even a cast and production list would be a fairer judgement than just saying that “it’s happening.” Can’t wait for both!

    • I am so happy we’re getting the classic Evagelion. I never got the chance to see this anime, but I like the story and characters. I can now experience what I have been missing out. I feel the same way with Cowboy Bebop. I want to know about the cast and any teaser trailers. I don’t want to quickly assume it’s going to be bad.
