Voice actress Megumi Ogata, “We’ve finished recording Evangelion: 3.0+1.0” yet there are still some trials left to face.
"Evangelion: 3.0+1.0", the long-awaited conclusion to the "Rebuild of Evangelion" series, will be released on Jun. 27, 2020. Megumi Ogata, the voice actress who plays the role of Shinji Ikari, revealed the following recording progress on her personal twitter: "All main content has been recorded!... That said.."
"Neon Genesis Evangelion" was first broadcast on television in 1995. Through the lens of Shinji and the other junior high school students who were selected to become Eva Pilots, the show managed to portray some universally recognizable themes, like: "What is human nature? And what do people live for?", and soon gave rise to a social phenomenon.
The series remake started in 2007, and three movies have been released since: "Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone.", "Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.", and "Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo.". Now, on Jun. 27, 2020, Director Hideki Anno will be breaking the seal on the final movie in the "Rebuild of Evangelion" series.
On Feb. 25, 2020, Megumi Ogata, who voices Shinji Ikari, posted the following regarding the movie's recording in her personal twitter.
"We have finished recording 'Evangelion: 3.0+1.0's main parts!
... That said, it's not like it's all wrapped up. Retakes and various other things will still need to be done, and on top of that, there are still some personal challenges left to face. Well, of course, that's all part of it too #Eva."
Finally, she added a comment that raised the expectations even higher:
"I will devote myself fully to the project until the very last moment, so please wait a little longer."
Well then, in the spirit of her words, let us excitedly follow every development unfold until the last moment before the release.
"Evangelion: 3.0+1.0" will be released on Jun. 27, 2020.
