Nebs is in attendance over at Anime Central in Chicago right now, and he attended an ADV panel there-- and Matt Greenfield reportedly said this in response to a question about the live-action Evangelion movie that's been the One Piece treasure of the anime fandom practically since before One Piece existed:
“'Soon, & I'm not kidding' was Mr. Greenfield's response. He clarified a bit later that evening during an Evangelion panel, saying the closer he gets to sealing the deal the less he can say anything about it. & the fact that he can't say anything at all anymore should be a clear sign to us how close the deal really is. He seemed pretty confident.”
(Speaking of Evangelion, a trailer for Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance is up!)
Nebs and Japanator's Godlen both have some more Anime Central coverage. I wish I could be there, but alas...I like to actually see my apartment every once in a while. So check out their stuff!
