Rumor Squad: FUNimation sends C&Ds for Eva 1.0?

FUNimation has sent out C&Ds for the first of the new Evangelion movies. But does it mean anything?

So, it’s not really all that surprising anymore that FUNimation sends cease and desist letters for titles they may or may not be in the process of licensing: they’ve done so before on behalf of Gonzo, for example.

But apparently issuing cease and desist letters to fansubbers (like Nyoron) who have released or are releasing Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone, and let’s face it– if it involves Gainax and/or Evangelion, it’s something to think about. Especially since previous Eva licensor ADV seems to still be recovering from hitting some financial snags.

The letter specifically states that FUNimation is acting on behalf of NTV and that the film is unlicensed, so this easily could mean absolutely nothing, especially since the companies have worked together before (NTV aired FUNi titles like Claymore and Host Club).

On the other hand, it could mean that there are talks going down and we may finally see a Stateside release for the movie revamp of Eva. Who knows?

(P.S. On an unrelated note…hey, what’s this?…)
