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.
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...Read more ›
Unlike the previous film which was basicly a retelling of the original TV series from episodes 1 through 6 with new elements added in, EVa 2.22 is a complete remake with key elements from the series.
Asuka is finally introduced in this movie, with the surname 'Shikinami' instead of 'Soryu' and a slight change in personallity. She still the bitchy red head who goes out to kick butt whenever she can, but she also more anti-social compared to the TV series. She's basicly more of your tipical Tsundare.
A new addition to the Eva cast is Mari Illustrious Makinami, who is introduced at the start of the film as the pilot for the new Eva Unit 05 where sh battles against a new type of Angel.
The series does make use of elements from the series such as Eva 03 going out of control and eventual destruction by Shinji's Eva 01 and the Angel Zerul's attack on Nerv headquaters.
All and all, the film is a must to any anime collection. The animation is top quality,the story telling well paced and the action scenes are outstanding. Eva 2.22 does a great job of reimagining the Eva series, and with the third movie Evangelion: You Can (Not) Redo coming to Japanese cinemas this year, the franchise is only going to get better.
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.
