In Summer 2006, Hideaki Anno, one of Japan's finest animation directors, announced to the world that he was going back to his famous creation, NEON GENESIS EVANGELION (1995-1996), and re-tell the story in THE REBUILD OF EVANGELION, a tetralogy of movies. The first three would be an alternative version of the series with new animation, settings and characters, while the fourth film would have an completely different end. The reaction was mixed - "why go back and re-tell an anime that is so beloved?"

Some people think EVANGELION has become a cash-cow. But that's not true. Anno is re-telling EVANGELION because he wants to make it look and sound better, and allow newcomers of anime to watch it with life-long fans. He also wants to present the EVANGELION in the way he couldn't back in the mid-1990's.

I'm going to get a major flak for saying this, although EVANGELION has a powerful and fantastic storyline, moments of pure genius and great characters (Rei Ayanami is my all-time favourite anime character, alongside Yuki Nagato from the HARUHI SUZUMIYA franchise), it's not a perfect series. Anno had a very ambitious vision for his creation. But GAINAX, who produced the anime, did not received much money nor time to make the episodes they wanted. When the episodes were failing to meet their deadlines, the budget began to decline, and eariler footage started to get re-use alot. The combination of increasing re-use footage and little new animation mid-way through the series was turning the production into a disaster, which was probably one of the reasons why Anno suffered a nervous breakdown.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a manga and a animated TV-series made in Japan in the 1990s. The basic storyline is set in the future 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". Giant biological robots called Eavngelion (Evas) are defending the Earth against the angels. The Evas are piloted by children with nerve-systems compatible with the Evas. The story revolves around Shinji Ikari who is to pilot one of the Evas.

The story is complex and simple at the same time. The basic plot is a battle between humanity and aliens. But there are also many thing never fully explained like the mysterious organisation "Seele" and the "Human instrumentality project". And one of the charms is the use of gnostic/religious symbols ("The Golgatha Project", "Spear of Longinus", "angels" etc). This makes Evangelion re-watchable and gives it character. Also, the imaginative work is incredible with fantastic designs for robots and aliens, and a whole city called "Tokyo 3" with skyscrapers able to withdraw underground and form an inverted city. The battles between the angels and Evas usually take place in Tokyo 3. There are also references to older japanese pop-culture stuff. Like the "Super Robot" genre (Mazinger Z, Getter Robo etc). Just like in Mazinger, the robots need young people to pilot them. And just like in Mazinger the aliens attack one by one, one at a time, with the robots coming up from the underground to meet the challenge. There is also the usual anime mix of cuteness and violence, but beware because Evangelion is not for children.

Without running the risk of turning a review into an examination, such is the subject matter and its ‘Rebuild’ status, I will simply state that, as a fan of the original series, I loved this first film of the four-part neo series.

Evangelion 1:11 tells the story of the beginning of the Third Impact in much the same way as the original series did to begin with, but is interlaced with new twists, upgrades, subtle differences and, by the end credits, the first hints of something very different.

Shinji Ikari, a young Japanese boy, is called in by his father to pilot a top-secret, clandestine-organisation-led Mecha entity - known as an Eva Unit - in order to fight against enormous beings - known as Angels - that are trying to destroy Earth. But under this surface layer lies a labyrinthine story of what it is to be human and, indeed, what it is to even exist at all.

While I liked how this film stayed true to the original series, I also loved the additions that were implemented: most notably the stupendous portrayal of the new Ramiel.

Furthermore, the images are crystal-clear and sharp, the CGI is used to compliment rather than override the main drawings and the attention to detail - particularly the workings of Tokyo III - are superb. Evangelion 1:11 looks and feels fantastic. The new soundtrack is good too.

Whether the Rebuild is better than the original series is, certainly at this point, an unanswerable question. If you’re a Neon Genesis Evangelion fan you’re going to buy this anyway. If you’re new to Evangelion...

Well, if you like Animé, buy it. If you like Sci-Fi, buy it. If you’re completely new to films outside Hollywood, buy it. In fact I cant think of anybody I wouldn’t recommend it to. It’s that significant - unless you hate lots of action of course.

The Rebuild is under-way. God’s In His Heaven. All’s Right With The World...
