Anno Hideaki Mr., history of up to solidify the decision after receiving an offer we can, what you are trying to create.
And Why I decided to make a fancy special effects movie. December 2012. Eva: After publication of Q, I was broken. So-called, became a depression. 6 years, to that it had again made the Eva by shaving his soul, it was deserved. 2013 spaced. Its one year was the year that mental negative wave comes back shaking many times. He served as a representative, he did not able to approach even just once in the studio that has burdened the work. 2014 early. I was able finally to return to the studio. Then, I am back to gradually animated work by rehabilitation of mind that over a period of 1 year. And, in 2015. Now after 20 years from the broadcast of the old Eva, you are not already waiting also purchased more than two years, also work towards the realization of the completion of the Shin Evangelion theater version, has been promoted somehow. My people around, and everyone of anime fans, it is because me support the motivation again towards the completion. Really I thank you. And, now at the same time, also I am going work to the fancy special effects movie form. Beginning was the 2013 end of January. Directly from the people of Toho "I want to ask the director of the new movie of Godzilla", was commissioned. I was was mentally unstable as well, it "is impossible. Also to some Eva, is not'm able to," said the spot was Cosi. But, mind is moved to Toho of sincerity and allies Shinji Higuchi director of enthusiasm, the same year March, it was decided to undertake the supervision. Past of continuity, etc. just not science fiction video playback of prayer, wish I put in the special effects Museum, is giving back to the author and past work of predecessors Only then embody the spirit, is the completion of its intention and responsibility, that to reach the feelings, it was decided to undertake. Now you can not only, you can do because now, new, and I think that challenge one-time, it was decided to undertake. Not the Eva, and realize a state that does not continue to the new works by incorporating not and previously myself, it was decided to undertake.
The same year in May, I want to draw as a work, I decided the subject to be draw.
And the same year in June, submit a proposal that G work memo to Toho, and start creating the plot, etc.. The world of science fiction that there is Godzilla, reality of caricature not only dreams and aspirations, is also a satire or a mirror image. In the current Japan is also a reckless attempt to draw it. Honestly, in production costs also production time also extremely low in Japan in the field when compared to world capital, in the constraints on the various terms of content, I do not know really it is how far the draw. However, pride as a movie, and as a funny video work even a little, it is, proceed to think now of the thing can be to me also thin Eva this work is also going to make at best, the movie Yes twists and turns in the direction and screenplay content, etc., we are led to the current. Author is merely only excuse also wrote what, a situation that is exposed in front of good faith and bad faith on the -ply know, to make by carrying a fancy special effects work to represent Japan in this country of this era, the fact that from the desire that if you could understand even a little, we have asked the Setsubun. Finally, and the surrounding people who will support his, again thanks to everyone of the fan audience that is willing to support the work, the video can make, I thank you again to the fact that. Thanks you. << Written and general director Anno Hideaki >>
Higuchi true of hot and deep "Godzilla Love" and now state of mind not excited about the resurrection that have passed since three decades to sneak in the field of filmmaking, free amateur movie the difference between the ideal and the reality that was witnessed in the field Even three decades from the negative butyrate to the hero that was running the world of the front lines. Time was come at last. Reckless high school students of the college hero also now Arafifu. It is like a dream, but I must now dropped this into reality. Not afford to arrange the sleep talking. That you want to do really, that you need to do, that you should not be doing absolutely, that you do not want to do it if it can be, you have fought in my head and turned to four freezing. Just like it is in the brain champion festival. Well. Time of play I was finished. Still, I a triumph over the only way out to pressure such that want to run away to be Tachimukaeru the best companion. That you were born in this country that gave birth to this great God, Meguriae to work as special effects, it was come continues, and while thanks to fate that this opportunity came around, next year, the worst nightmare to everyone at the highest will deliver. << Director / feats Director (concurrently) Shinji Higuchi >>
