UPDATE: This was thread on Eva 1.0, then 2.0, now 3.33 finally! See last post for 3.0 news....

Beautiful update. [1.0 you are (not) alone] Still a fresh story and still socks you in the stomach. The animation is all new, but still following same character designs and matched scenes. But it's all updated, drawing in CGI elements (unobtrusive), and edits to get it in one film (or at least 1/4 of the story)...and still new stuff is added. I can't say enough about it...and am very excited to see 2.0 whenever it comes out...as THERE WILL be lots of changes and brand new characters!!!!!

Huh? When'd you hear there'd be new characters? I just bought it, loved it, and am rather happy with it to say the very least, Eva being one of my favourite series.

As for the other DVDs, any clear idea of when they'll be coming out?

Huh. That is...actually one of most awesome outfits I've ever seen on an Eva pilot.

O_o


Man, I'm actually VERY pumped up about this new one coming soon. Any news yet on 2.0?

Great news, those are. :3

I was a little bit annoyed at some of the cliched presentation of various factors in the movie-fied version that 1.0 did, such as the extremely unnecessary presentation of Kaoru at the end of it. What was the purpose of that? Suspenseful cliff-hanger? No. :\ I didn't like that. Everything else was amazing though. I adore the redone effects, and the BRILLIANT animation of the angels!

Saw Evangelion: 2.0 YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE that I finally purchased for Blu-Ray (actually it is labelled 2.22). After a two years wait to see this I am overjoyed. More great story and animation to update a much-loved franchise. Of course the real blitz was the arrival of a new pilot that we have discussed above...a real exciting character that thrashes whatever Eva she pilots...but still we know very little about her. Of course we are reintroduced to Asuka who is just as punchy and histrionic. So now I have something to rewatch over and over until Evangelion 3.0: Q [Quickening] makes its appearance on English media release (in another two years?! I hope not!). Apparently 4.0: Final will be released simultaneously with 3.0 Fall 2012 in Japan theaters so at least it shouldn't be another fours years to see that.

It has been years since FUNimation's last release of 2.22...if you look at my review dates. Finally, it has been announced that NGE 3.0 english language dvd/bluray will get a Feb. '16 release. I am sure many have broke down years ago and got the Japanese release, but I haven't...so I haven't seen either 3 or 4 yet.

Lot has happened in my life since 2.0...lol...laugh...cry....

Finally watched 3.33...as it was released Feb. 2, 2016. Such a long wait!

Shinji awakens 14 years later after starting the 3rd impact, shocked to discover so much had changed. His friends are either gone, missing, or had grown to despise him.

Katsuragi now commands a group who is intent on destroying NERV with EVA pilots, Atsuka and Mari, acting as the rebellion's soldiers. Still confused about his role in events, Shinji learns the harsh truth from the mysterious Kaworu concerning Seele's plan, his father's role, and the pre-designed course of his part in the Human Intrumentality Project.

In a final effort to put things right, is Shinji truly breaking free or is he still following the intended script to bring about the final end of humanity?

This is a surprising turn of events in the story. Still a very strong production, but what is familiar is now completely erased, creating an anxiety-producing portion of the tale where we join Shinji in his disorientation of the world as he knew it and a property as we had known it. This film may both excite and anger long-time fans. Thankfully, there is still one left to go (whenever THAT will be legally distributed).

Asuka emerges as my favorite character in this film. Onward ho to 4.44............
