I know that probably nobody who works at FUNimation will read this, but I just thought that I would do a brief post about something that is pissing me off – the delay of Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo, here in the states. And before people rag on me for not wanting subtitles, I have loved the dubs for the first two movies, and that’s how I want to see the third.
See, there was this sick English trailer released for the film. The first one of its kind. And oh my god, I was pumped! Made it even better when there was a bit at the end that said that it was coming out on March 31st! I was about to run and pre-order on Amazon, before I noticed a little thing that said that it was had been delayed. I looked it up, and according to the site, it has been delayed until August 25th. Now that is REALLY annoying, but it gets worse – that’s in the UK! For real, the UK has a confirmed final release date of August 25th. But here in the States, when you go on Amazon, it’s available for pre-order, but has no release date. None at all. A little odd, considering that they have it for pre-order. Then, I looked on FUNimation’s website. I needed to know why it was delayed. The reason has pissed me the fuck off!
It’s a stunt to make money. For real, that’s it. See, they are delaying it in the States so that they can keep it in theaters for longer. Which means, it’s so that they can milk it for more money. And do you know what that means?! That means that this film could end up being delayed until the end of the fucking year! Because they want to make more money! That is fucking bullshit! Release the damn thing, already! It’s done! For real, it’s already done! Is your precious bottom line really that important to you?! I realize that not one damn person from FUNimation will see this, but you know what – I hope they do. And realize that what they are doing is dumb! It’s been two years that we’ve been waiting. Let’s end it now!
That is all.
