The Studio Khara, which had worked on “Rebuild of Evangelion”, has released the 1st and 2nd episodes of original TV anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion” on the company's official YouTube channel. In addition, a video digest on the trilogy “Rebuild of Evangelion” edited by general director Anno Hideaki has been released.
“Neon Genesis Evangelion” (of which the 1st and 2nd episodes have been released) was broadcast as a TV anime in 1995. The story depicts the adventure of Shinji and other junior high school students that have been chosen to pilot Evangelion, dealing with the universal theme that has passed through all ages; “What is the true nature of human beings? And what do they live for?”.
Since 2007, three series titled “Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone”, “Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance”, and “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo”, were released as a series reboot. And then, the seal of “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0” which will be the final film of the tetralogy on Jun. 27, 2020, will be released by Anno Hideaki, director of the series.
Ahead of the release of “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0”, a video digest on the trilogy “Rebuild of Evangelion” will be released on “Khara Inc. Official YouTube Channel”. The same videos were shown during the event “Operation0706” regarding “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 AVANT1 (first 10 minutes 40 seconds 00 frames) 0706 Ver.”, so this can be both a good chance to look back at the series and a great review of “Rebuild of Evangelion”.
“Evangelion: 3.0+1.0” is scheduled to be released on Jun 27, 2020.
