Evangelion 2.22 to Run on Toonami on August 31

2nd film in Anno & Khara's revamp of Gainax sci-fi series to run with "special little goodie"

Adult Swim's Toonami block announced on Wednesday that it will run the Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance film on August 31. Toonami's staff added that the American television block will also show "a special little goodie that you'll have to wait to find out about."

In addition, the American series Star Wars: The Clone Wars will replace the anime Eureka 7 after it finishes its latest run on Adult Swim next month. Adult Swim is working on running the full finale of Eureka 7, as opposed to the cut version that ran during the anime's first Adult Swim run in 2007.

Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) is the second film in Hideaki Anno and Khara's four-part remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime series. Evangelion: 2.22 is the name of the updated home video release of the film. The film screened in American theaters in 2011, and FUNimation Entertainment released the film on DVD and Blu-ray in North America later that same year.
