Evangelion 3.0 Spoilers (Few)
[alert type=”red”]WARNING: This section contains some spoilers about the movie.[/alert]
You might be wondering, if this is the opening scene of the movie, what happened to Shinji and Rei? If you have seen Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance, the last scene there was Shinji triggered the third impact while trying to save Rei. Kaworu Nagisa also appeared after the ending credits, revealing that it was him who threw a spear to stop the Eva Unit 01 from triggering the third impact further. So watch happened next?
Well, Evangelion 3.0 took place 14 years after the said event. The big object that Asuka and Mari Makinami Illustrious was trying to capture was actually the frozen Evangelion Unit 01 with Shinji Ikari inside. Sinji was just revived by Misato’s group.
Misata formed an anti-NERV group to combat Gendo Ikari, who, as some of us might know, is trying to destroy the world.
Rei II, the one that Shinji was trying to save is dead. And Ikari cloned Rei II and created Rei III for his own purpose. Actually that also happened on the original Evangelion Anime series.
Most probably Shinji will also like Kawuro in this movie, to the point that it may look like they are homosexuals, just like in the Anime series. But with some improved modifications.
I’m really excited to see this movie. Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo was released on November 17, 2012 on Japan. There is not date yet as to when will it be released outside Japan. Let’s just hope that it will be out very soon enough.
