Earlier this summer, Hideaki Anno apologized to Evangelion fans, saying he was sorry to keep them waiting. Now he says he’s working hard on Eva.
According to Eiga.com, Anno also said, “It’d be more interesting if they changed directors. Toho wouldn’t let me do it anyway, because it was so hard.”
When asked about Evangelion: 3.0+1.0, the fourth and last entry in the Rebuild of Evangelion series, Anno replied, “I’ll work hard [on it]. I mean, I’m already working hard [on it].”
