EVANGELION: 3.0+1.0 THRICE UPON A TIME”, the concluding film of the long-running “Evangelion” series since the TV version was released in 1995, has finally been released on video distribution services.
The film has been released exclusively on Amazon Prime Video (as of August 13, 2021), and is now available to Amazon Prime members at no extra charge.
EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 THRICE UPON A TIME” is a continuation of “EVANGELION:1.0 YOU ARE (NOT) ALONE.” which was released in theaters in 2007. It continues with a completely different ending from the original TV anime “Neon Genesis Evangelion”.
EVANGELION: 1.0 YOU ARE (NOT) ALONE.” is a story that reconstructs “Neon Genesis Evangelion” with modern animation technology, and while “Ou” recreates the original story, it also features an intriguing ending that leads to the sequel. In addition, “Q” became the talk of the town for its surprising twist that caught the fans off guard.
Q” was released in 2012, and the final film, “EVANGELION: 3.0+1.0 THRICE UPON A TIME” was released after a lapse of about 9 years.
The fans who have been waiting for this film have been very enthusiastic, and it has become a hot topic of conversation as it has set records such as the highest box-office revenue of 10 billion yen for a series of films in history and the number of spectators exceeding 6.55 million.
This time, “Shin Evangelion the Movie” will be distributed with a version called “EVANGELION:3.0+1.01 THRICE UPON A TIME” with further adjustments. It is noteworthy that the world’s best animation has evolved further. If you’ve seen it in the theater, you may want to look for the differences between this version and the theatrical version.
Evangelion: 1.0 You Can (Not) Redo”, “Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Redo”, and “Evangelion: Q” are also available on Amazon Prime Video. I recommend taking this opportunity to re-watch the first film in the series.
Anno’s documentary is also on Amazon Prime
Incidentally, the documentary program “Sayonara All Evangelions – Hideaki Anno’s 1214 Days”, which closely followed Hideaki Anno, the general director of “Shin Evangelion the Movie”, for four years, is now available. This video is also a must-see, as it describes Anno’s persistence and anguish in making the final work.
