EVANGELION: 2.22 on UK DVD and Blu-ray in June
New Pilots, New Evas, New Angels. The landmark anime NEON GENESIS EVANGELION (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン, Shin Seiki Evangerion, 1995) evolves, reaching new heights of intensity in the new feature film EVANGELION: 2.22 YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE, coming to DVD and Blu-ray in the UK from Manga Entertainment on the 20th of June, 2011. The home video editions present the theatrical anime movie EVANGELION: 2.0 (ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版: 破, Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: Ha, 2009), digitally mastered and with upgraded scenes.
In this explosive new story, brutal action and primal emotion clash as a group of young pilots maneuver their towering, cyborg Eva Units into combat against a deadly and disturbing enemy. In the battle to prevent the apocalyptic Third Impact, Shinji Ikari and Rei Ayanami were forced to carry humanity’s hopes on their shoulders. Now, as the onslaught of the bizarre, monstrous Angels escalates, they find their burden shared by two new Eva pilots, the fiery Asuka Langley Shikinami and the mysterious Mari Illustrious Makinami. In this thrilling new experience for fans of giant robot destruction, the young pilots fight desperately to save mankind and struggle to save themselves.
