Trivia

The title of the film's second half, "Magokoro wo Kimi ni" (Sincerely Yours), comes from the title of the Japanese version of Charly (1968), which was based on Daniel Keyes's "Flowers For Algernon". "Magokoro wo Kimi ni" was reportedly the title given to the first edition of Keyes's story when it was released in Japan. See more »

Quotes

Misato Katsuragi: The power's still on. There's still time. Shinji, listen to me... from now on, you're on your own. You'll have to make your own decisions. No one can do it for you.
Shinji Ikari: I... I can't. I'm no good. I can't pilot EVA if all I do is hurt and kill people. I thought I had no choice but to pilot EVA, but I was just lying to myself. I'm not worthy of piloting an EVA, because I don't understand anything. I'm incapable of doing anything good for anybody else! I did something terrible, though. I killed Kaworu...

Crazy Credits

The credits are shown at the halfway point of the movie instead of at the end. Also, they rise in a helix pattern instead of rising straight up. See more »

Alternate Versions

Manga Entertainment's 2002 DVD release of the movie contains some noticeable changes from the original film. In the English dub for instance, "splat" sound effects were dubbed into the scene of Misato shooting a trooper in the head and the scene in which the mass-produced Evas explode. Additionally in the dub, a shot in which a trooper attacks a NERV member with a flamethrower now has the added line "Hit 'im again!". Finally, a set of translated credits set to the song "THANATOS ~ If I Can't Be Yours" is shown after the film's conclusion, but unlike the credits appearing halfway through the movie, these credits are shown in the standard "scrolling" fashion. (The original Japanese version of the film has no credits at the end.) These and other alterations are explained by Amanda Winn Lee, the writer, producer and director of the English version, in the DVD's commentary track. However, many fans of the series carry animosities toward Winn Lee for authorizing such changes, and the DVD was criticized for its poor picture quality and errors in the subtitle translation.

Absolutely Amazing, My life is now complete
2 September 2000 | by Manga_ManSee all my reviews

Being a fan of both Evangelion and Anime in general, this movie was the best I've ever seen. It takes the form of two episodes and serves as an alternate ending to the series. Everything about this piece amazed me, from the brilliant animation, to the subtle and deep storyline, to the feeling of dramatic climax the series was building up to in the first place. I have to say that Hideaki Anno managed to play my emotions like an instrument, and the effect is never lessened, no matter how many times I watch it.
