5.0 out of 5 stars I Have Seen - And It Is Good, February 2, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Evangelion: 1.11 You Are {Not} Alone [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I've been a big fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion for many years. I've watched all the original series (and barely made it out alive from 25-26) and absolutely love The End of Evangelion. When I found out they were remaking the series, I was both excited and concerned, but it turns out my fears were alleviated when I finally got to see Evangelion: You Are (Not) Alone.

Gainax took the first few episodes of the series, cleaned up the story, and redrew all the art, amazingly integrated CGI (especially compared to its poor modern usage in anime) and used a movie budget to make something that looks GOOD to watch in 1080p. If you're as big an Eva fan as I am, or even if you just liked some of the series, I'd definitely recommend Evangelion 1.11. They've changed enough of it to flow better in a straight 110 minutes of run time and I didn't want to stop watching for a second.

Now, the real question begins: When will 2.11 escape to the United States?

Also, it hasn't even been released on DVD/BD in Japan yet (May 26 I do believe), so not for quite a while I would imagine. And yes, the home release is going to be 2.22

This was not done by Gainax, but by Anno's Studio Khara which he had to set up to make these films.

Evangelion in the old days was put in jeopardy by some tax evasion scandal at Gainax according to some book i cannot remember the title. Though i still think its funded by StarChild Records, i think.

I think you mean the nonteki memoires.... lol not sure how to spell that. Anyways the main problem with evas budget came after ep 18, the broadcasting company thought it was too violent, so they gave sega (fundingEVA) two choices, either cut its budget in half or cancel the series altogether; aperently we can see what was done.
