25 years ago on October 4, 1995, the Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime series debuted in Japan. To mark the anniversary of the start of the iconic franchise, earlier this week the official Twitter accounts of Evangelion and studio Khara posted messages thanking fans for their support.

Standing out amongst the series of tweets was a message from series creator and director Hideaki Anno, who noted the patience of fans over the years. Included in the post was the cover of the original pitch proposal for the Evangelion TV show and an internal-use title card for test footage from the upcoming Rebuild film.

The title card notes “D-part,” which is the final sequence of the film before the ending credits roll. But the “Sin_Dpart 2020/10/02 05:59:50:00” notation on the card is now leading fans to believe that Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time might have a six-hour run time. Causing a divide in the fandom, some fans believe that a lengthy final chapter is a fitting end to the Rebuild film series launched in 2007, while some are worried about having to dedicate that amount of time to finish the story.

Catch the message from Hideaki Anno and the posts for the 25th-anniversary of Neon Genesis Evangelion below.
