Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo Blu-ray

5th March 2016 at 8:51 pm

Dear Chibi,

‘Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo’ is finally out in Australia on blu-ray! 3.33 is the third of four films released in the ‘Rebuild of Evangelion’ tetralogy, with the final film yet to come.

Let’s have a closer look at the packaging~ (Click here for Evangelion 1.11 and 2.22)

This is the limited edition version which comes with a slipcase and a mini booklet.

The box is a bit wider than the previous two movies because the booklet is bigger and sits outside the disc case.

The inside is surprisingly minimalistic too. I found it a bit underwhelming considering the release for the previous 2 movies had a lot more visuals. (Comparison pictures below)

The booklet has a really nice shiny cover with 56 pages of coloured visuals. I like :D

Comparison of the 3 booklets

3 movies side by side. It makes me wish the cover used an artwork as oppose to a simple black for consistency sake ^^”

TADA. At least this matches and looks great as a collection :)

 

This release comes with a bunch of extras like teasers and trailers, though the gem is really ‘Rebuild of Evangelion: 3.33’. It gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie including the storyboards, animatics, 3D modelling, backgrounds and line-art. This is just so incredible! Having said that, the film itself does look really impressive. It was also quite enjoyable, and explores a lot of new themes and concepts which are rather intriguing, albeit confusing. With the final film on the way, I’m hoping it will finally give us some answers.

Special thanks to Madman for providing a copy for review.
