After nine years of leaving anime nerds hanging, director Hideaki Anno is finally bringing Evangelion:3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon A Time to international audiences. Amazon Prime will release the final installment of the legendary Neon Genesis Evangelion series today and fans are absolutely losing it.
On their website, Amazon’s description for Thrice Upon A Time reads,
Available in 29 languages…The 4th and final installment of Rebuild of Evangelion. Misato and her anti-NERV group Wille arrive at Paris, a city now red from core-ization. Crew from the flagship Wunder land on a containment tower. They only have 720 seconds to restore the city. When a horde of NERV Evas appear, Mari’s improved Eva Unit 8 must intercept. Meanwhile, Shinji, Asuka, and Rei (provisional name) wander about Japan.
What will become of Shinji? Is he still depressed and horny? Will he get in the f*cking robot? Wait, Rei is alive?? We’re counting down the minutes until we can watch the supposed final (for real this time) end to Evangelion and hopefully get some answers, or at the very least, a pretty psychedelic experience. Until then, here’s a mix of classic Evangelion memes to get you even more hyped.
