Note: this is a review of the region A (US) version, which technically should be the same disc, just another region code.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is originally a manga and an animated TV-series made in Japan in the 1990s. The basic storyline is set in the future (2015) after the mysterious "second impact" which killed off a large part of the human population. Some time after the impact Earth was attacked by powerful monstrous beings known as "angels". The story is complex and simple at the same time. The basic plot is a battle between humanity and aliens, with a lot of references to the earlier japanese Super Robot genre (Mazinger Z, Tetsujin) as well as kabbalistic/religious symbols and psychology, which gives it a lot of character (as well as room for interpretations as everything is not explained). There is also the usual anime mix of cuteness and violence, but beware because Evangelion is not for children. Also, the imaginative work is really something.

Evangelion 2.22 You Can Not Advance is the sequel to Evangelion 1.11, as well as a reworking of the original TV-series. If you haven't seen the TV-series nor the first movie (1.11) you should do this before seeing 2.22. In essence the films are a new version of the TV-series with both graphic improvement and changes in the story.

While 1.11 was more like a recapitulation and comprimation of several TV-episodes (with much improved graphics), 2.22 rewrites the original story and introduces new characters and ideas. The result is amazing and psychedelic leaving the viewer mindboggled waiting for Evangelion 3.33.

Evangelion 2.22 is the second instalment of the Rebuild of Evangelion series.
Of course to enjoy this you'll have to watch the first which is 1.11.
I was delighted with this as I found it to be well-made and an excellent way to continue the Evangelion series, even if it is a reboot.
Before considering this you must watch the first or you'll have no grasp of goings on.
In the collector's edition it's easily worth it since it contains both the Blu-Ray and DVD along with a special booklet that shows the making of, always a nice thing to own.

I had a low opinion of the Evangelion franchise before going into this recent 'Rebuild of Evangelion'remake quadrilogy that takes the original anime TV series and revamps and updates it for more modern audiences. Now I have the highest praise for the much hyped franchise, as the first movie in this series, 'You are (not) alone' was a really superb new take on the early goings of the series, but was a tad light on new material for the most part. This second film, subtitled 'You can (not) advance', is a truly phenomenal piece of work that takes the remakes off in an entirely new direction from the original series and features more new story content and material than old this time around, creating something that puts a superb, and in my opinion far superior new slant on the original characters and is a movie that manages to both move and shock in equal measure.

Picking up soon after the first film's climax. 2.22 begins as Eva pilots Shinji Ikari and Rei Ayanami (Who have started to grow closer following the first film's events) are thrown for a loop by the arrival of manic new Eva pilot Asuka Shikanami (Yes, she's had a name change for the remakes) whose bottomless arrogance and open disdain for her comrades causes friction at NERV HQ. But as the EVA pilots live and fight together they begin to find common ground, and as the Angel attacks continue to escalate, a new EVA pilot named Maya arrives in Tokyo 3 under mysterious circumstances, Rei struggles with her growing romantic feelings for Shinji and just when there appears to be a bit of happiness to be found for our protagonists within their horrible, violence filled existences... tragedy strikes...

The second rebuild film is a little weird. Its great to see the characters back once again and the animation is gorgeous. The only problem is the contents of the film... the first half is like a copy of the 9/12 episode of the first series but, then half way through it switches to an entirely new story. Which is completely fine as this is supposed to be a rebuild of the original, but then it continues to switch back and forth which can be a little frustrating to watch if you have seen the original series. Additionally, Asuka seems to have changed slightly and not for the better in my opinion. Also some key points within the original series that add to the entire feel of the world and the characters mental states has been removed or shorted to 10 second clips, which was very disappointing to see. But, overall it was great and anyone who hasn't seen the original will be very happy with the film overall as it is very enjoyable to watch. The fight between Sahaquiel was amazing and beautifully done.

Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22 is the second of four 're-imaginings' of the Neon Genesis Evangelion universe. It is a direct sequel to 1.11 You are (Not) Alone and should definitely not be watched without having seen 1.11 or at least 1.0 before.

Unlike 1.11, 2.22 takes a huge divergence from the original story of Neon Genesis Evangelion- whereas 1.11 was a retelling of episodes 1-6 with some slightly changed scenes, 2.22 features a new character and new Angels, with a much greater focus on entirely new content, with very little of the film being the same as in the original series.

2.22 is much like 1.11, however, in that it is incredibly well-animated and gorgeous to look at, with excellent voice tracks in both English and Japanese. The film's soundtrack is also incredible, with recognizable themes from the original TV series being brought up to modern standard, and with entirely new songs as well.

Ultimately, Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22 is an incredible film by all standards, perfect for both fans of the original series and for anybody with an interest in Anime.
