posted on by Gia Manry
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.
Funimation will release the film on DVD and Blu-ray in North America on March 29, 2011.
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.
