March 22 feature length program on Shin Eva

The recent few days have been an incessant hurricane of spoilers for Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 Thrice Upon A Time on our forums. It’s been hard to keep track of news in the face of the first new Evangelion content in eight and a half years!

However, in the midst of the storm, the ever-wonderful GhostlyOcam retweeted two posts making a spectacular announcement.

Japanese broadcast network NHK will be airing a feature-length program about the making of Shin Evangelion/ Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 on March 22 –

Ocam further notes that the program will feature behind-the-scene footage that encompasses four years of the film’s production. That is historical in itself because it is rarely allowed.

Well, hope we hear some interesting tidbits come March 22. Chalk that down to one more thing we hope leaves Japan’s shores and heads out into the world!
