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 is an anime production and organization company established by Anno, Hideaki, the director of Evangelion series and the former employee of GAINAX. GAINAX refused to explain the reason of the copyright change in the reply to the e-mail sent by an Eva fan.

Oh man, they never cease to milk the cash cow. Poor old cow must have incredibly raw teets by now. :(

I have yet to watch the first remake movie.. I didn't really like the original Neon Genesis Evangelion, especially starting midway into the anime to the end. It was worse than Death Note if I have to make a comparison, not just that it was confusing, it was also very disappointing. Death Note, on the other hand wasn't confusing, but just disappointing. However, the opening theme song was good: "Cruel Angel Thesis", was it?

Considering how well the sales were, I assume the remake is actually much better. Maybe, I should watch the first one before the release of the second one. On the contrary, I currently don't have the time to do so.

I can't wait for Misato, when she dies.
When you pause it on the series, you will see her getting blown up into pieces. Took me a few tries when I finally got it perfect. Was worth it.

Wish the sub version would hurry up and come out. Looks like it should be sweet.

So this is only going to be a movie? is there any talk on another series?


No. This is the Rebuild of Evangelion, a Remake of NGE split into a couple of movies. You might want to check the relations on the Anime page since this is the second movie and it looks like you missed the first one.
