Manga UK Provides Clarification for Evangelion 3.33 Pre-Order Cancelations


Manga Entertainment UK have today issued a statement surrounding yesterday’s confusion of Evangelion 3.33 being cancelled; and just as we assumed Manga UK are still releasing the film into the UK but as no ‘definitive’ release date is available they have opted to cancel pre-orders for the time being.
