News Amazon JP Gets 88,000 Evangelion 2.22 BD/DVD Pre-Orders

This second film in Hideaki Anno and Khara's four-part remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion science fiction anime series was released in theaters last June under the title Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance. The new "2.22" version number represents the Blu-ray/DVD release's digital mastering with "retakes." The second film continued the story of a group of 14-year-olds entrusted with giant biomechanical units to protect Earth from mysterious Angels. While the first film hewed closely to the original television series, the second film went farther in a different direction.
Funimation released the first film in the remake, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Jo), in North America last year in theaters and on home video. Like the second film, the first film had multiple retakes in its DVD releases, culminating with the latest "Evangelion 1.11" edition. Funimation's Blu-ray release of Evangelion 1.11 will ship on March 9.
