Continua la lotta serrata dell'umanità, rappresentata dai membri dell'Agenzia Speciale Nerv, alle misteriose creature chiamate "Angeli". A occuparsi del risveglio del Terzo Angelo è Mari, pilota assegnato all'unità provvisoria Evangelion 05. Asuka, invece, s'impegna a eliminare il Settimo Angelo a bordo del suo Eva-02. Dopo avere sconfitto l'Ottavo Angelo, il Nono Angelo è un nemico più infido, capace di insinuarsi nella nuovissima unità Evangelion 03 e impossessarsi del pilota assegnato al collaudo, ossia Asuka. Ha inizio il Third Impact.

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.
The film is just bonkers.
After Shinji Ikari and Rei Ayanami have overcome the threats of the first film, the world of Nerv is afforded a brief respite, allowing some necessary rebuilding of the Evas and defences. The team are bolstered by the arrival of Unit-02 and its pilot; the exasperating Asuka Langley, along with the clandestine dispersal of serie’s-new character Mari.
Naturally, the new wave of angel attacks draw the absolute limit from Nerv and the pilots, before the film culminates with a familiar scene for long-term Eva fans.
At the beginning of the Rebuild series Hideaki Anno touted a wave of new developments for Neon Genesis Evangelion, and he’s definitely delivered on that front. With (at least) two films remaining, you’d wonder where else the story is to go; with almost all the original series now accounted for in terms of the ultimate destination: The Human Instrumentality Project.
One aspect I applaud in this second instalment is the art design and blend of drawing and CGI to realise the forms and traits of the Angels. They look absolutely stunning. As with 1:11, they are evolved from the originals and their methods of evisceration are almost beautiful -and superbly directed.
The special features are decent too - one of which gives a good insight into the significant differences between the original Japanese script and the translated, localised version.
The classical soundtrack synonymous with the series is updated too with some great results. The atmosphere somehow seems to be a bit more sombre.Read more ›
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 ›
