It’s been a painfully long wait but after several years, and a re-written English script, the third movie instalment into the ‘Rebuild’ of Evangelion has arrived on home video; but was it worth the wait? Well lets take a look in our Blu-ray review of Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo.

Synopsis:

With Rei Ayanami nowhere to be seen, could his efforts to save her have been in vain – and what friendships can he now rely on?

FUNimation To Work Directly with Studio Khara for Evangelion 3.33’s English Release

EVANGELION_3_0_SHOT

FUNimation have recently announced that they will be working with Studio Khara, the Japanese studio who originally produced the film, so that an English version of Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo can be produced.

We are working directly with the Japanese studio and the original creator on the upcoming Evangelion 3.33 home video release. This is a unique opportunity that presented itself to us, and since the plot for Evangelion 3.33 is so different from previous story lines, we are thrilled that the creator has asked to be so heavily involved in this project.

It’s never been fully explained as to whats been happening with the English release; but rumours suggest that the Japanese Studios were unhappy with the English Dub that FUNimation had produced and as a result the Japanese licensors asked for the English Dub to be altered. As a result of these alterations storyline elements that the Japanese Studios wanted fans of the franchise to see were lost. Read more of this post
