GAINAX Abandons The Copyright of Evangelion?
The trademark of GAINAX was erased from the copyright indications of "Neon Genesis Evangelion
" and "Rebuild of Evangelion
". The previous copyright indications were "GAINAX and Khara" (for the original Evangelion) and "Khara and GAINAX" (for the Rebuild of Evangelion), but the new one shows "Khara" only for both the TV series and the movies. Khara
