Tiffany Grant, Mike McFarland and Matt Greenfield were guests recently on Madman Entertainment’s podcast “Anime Snack Time”. They talked about a variety of Evangelion-related topics, including the original television series and the new “Rebuild” films. They also discussed some of what goes into localization, including translation and dubbing. For some reason, Madman’s podcast page doesn’t […]
Mandarake just auctioned off an apparently authentic production cel from Neon Genesis Evangelion, featuring Misato from the show’s opening animation. Bidding opened at 80,000 yen ($962), and ended at 326,100 yen ($3,923). That’s definitely too rich for my blood, even if it is a unique, tangible piece of the show’s history. What’s interesting about this […]
