Jhonen Vasquez, in collaboration with Studio GAINAX, is creating a remake of the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime, animated by Studio Titmouse.
The series will center around Shinji Ikari's (Andy Berman) personal journey toward adulthood and understanding his father, Gendo Ikari (Rob Paulsen), while fighting Angels with his mech, EVA-01, alongside Rei Ayanami (Melissa Fahn) and Asuka Sohyru (Kate Miccuci).
"I've always wanted to do something like this," admits Jhonen Vasquez. "And if you're intricately familiar with the series, don't expect too much of the same, although things are definitely going to be like the Evangelion you remember." He then chuckled in a worrying fashion.
When asked what he thought of the pilot used to pitch the series, Hideaki Anno had nothing to add except "what the fuck."
