Awesome news indeed. Can't wait to see these in theaters(i know summer wars and Eva are already confirmed but i don't know about the Hetalia movie).

All they really need to do to make the Eva movie perfect is recast Asuka and don't use Tiffany Grant again(I never liked her and don't think she is a very good actress). They have alot of great actress who could play Asuka so I really hope they give someone else a shot.

Sorry, but I think you're alone on Tiffany Grant :P

I know I'm in the minority but I'm not alone. Alot of people I know in various forums and a group of anime friends don't think she was ever very good. She never had any nuance in her performance as Asuka. For her it was just yelling and screaming and acting like a bitch regardless of if the scene at hand required more then that or not.

When you compare Grants performances to others in the show hers is hands down the weakest of the cast and that would be made that much more evident with the next movie thanks to how incredible the Eva 1.11 dub was. More over she will probably in all likely hood try to play Asuka the exact same way she did in the original TV series despite the fact that her character is a bit different in the movie(meaning that she is a bit more likable) But that will be lost on the viewer if she plays Asuka the way she always has and that kinda ruins the movie.

In my opinion the only 2 characters that needed to remain the same for the dub was Shinji and Misato and they did most everyone else was changed and even for major characters no one complained(no one was angry about Rei being recast and yet Brina Palencia did a MUCH better job) I just think there is room for a better performance for Asuka and I'm not so sure Grant would be able to deliver that better performance whereas there are others out there who I know can.
