An unpredictable story line that keeps you guessing - but pulls you into the characters' plights.

Not so much?


Fans of the series may be polarized by the new direction this film takes, and newcomers would do best to watch the series in order.

“Experience a new chapter in the rebuild of a legend”

Evangelion: 3.33 is Funimation’s third installment in a four movie series, and it has a lot to offer in terms of action, suspense, and an unpredictable story line. That being said, be forewarned that if you are starting the series with this film, it will most likely offer a lot in the form of confusion – newcomers are advised to start the series from the beginning.

In You Can (Not) Redo, even those familiar with the series will be in for a bit of confusion, as much has happened since the previous installment. Shinji Ikari is awakened from some sort of coma, only to find that fourteen years have passed – and nothing is how he remembered. The Third Impact has left much of the world in ruins, and even his friends seem to have turned against him. They have formed a team to fight against NERV, and Shinji is being treated like a criminal – even to the point of death should he ever attempt to pilot an Eva again.

An escape leads Shinji to even more questions. NERV headquarters lies in shambles, and his father is unapproachable – and unstoppable in his directives. Shinji is to co-pilot a new two person Eva, along with the kind but enigmatic Kaworu Nagisa. As he puts everything he has into bringing back the world he knew and loved, Shinji might just bring about the Fourth Impact – and complete destruction of the world. It’s an action packed film that offers more in the way of questions than answers – and yet, viewers are drawn to Shinji and his frantic need to put things to rights. Though his blunders may yet end up doing more bad than good, his heart is in the right place – and it’s exceedingly obvious that he can trust no one. While fans of Evangelion may be a bit polarized by the direction the film’s story takes, it leaves you hoping for that happy ending in the final film.
