Manga Entertainment's British arm announced via Twitter on Friday that it will release Evangelion 2.22 by the end of next June on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The company first indicated its plans for the film this past May, only to retract its statement by October.
Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) is the second film in Hideaki Anno and Khara's four-part theatrical remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion series. Moviegoers spent 4 billion yen (about US$42 million) to watch Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance in theaters 2.9 million times. The film eventually became the #8 highest-grossing film in Japan last year and the #2 highest-grossing anime film. King Records received over 800,000 DVD and Blu-ray pre-orders of the film, including over 450,000 for the Blu-ray version.
