Okay, I didn't mean to sound so flippant and negative.

Adding tweens is good, but how do they add highlights?
Highlights are usually painted on first. Airbrush the other side of
the cell?

Sorry for the confusing post. Let me clarify things.

A.D.Vision is releasing Neon Genesis Evangelion, the TV series, not a new OVA
series. This is the same story, same number of episodes, same action in each
episode BUT...reanimated with OVA QUALITY animation. It is the TV series but
should look even better. Release date hasn't been set yet but should be
sometime in late spring of '96.

Hope that clears things up.

Any reason for reanimating Evangelion? And will the Japanese market LDs
of Eva contain the TV series animation or the reanimated OVA-quality
animation?

This just make any sense at all! The TV animation is already "OVA QUALITY".

o Why would GAINAX improve on the animation that is already good?

o What about the quality of the EVA LDs that just started being issued in
their home market?

o By doing this, isn't GAINAX betraying their home fans? If I were in Japan,
I would be pleased about this! -_-

What about the character designs, dialogue script, and voices ?

Ok, guys, I'm posting these things as I learn them. Here is some more info on
what is being done for the international release of Evangelion.

Gainax is enhancing the quality of the original animation for release to the

international market. They are not starting over from scratch, they are using

the existing cels and adding more cels to make the animation smoother; they
adding tones to the coloring; in some cases they may redraw cels; things of
that nature. The result will be an OVA quality version of the TV series.

When I was in Japan visiting Toei, they showed us that the highlights and
other airbrush effects were added to the front surface of the cel after the
cels were painted.

I guess they could make overlay cels for big changes like shadows and added
character shading.
