Trivia

According to Misato, the computer screen she is viewing near the beginning of the film is a file which reveals the truth of Second Impact. In reality (from what is legible) it is nothing but a short bio on Gainax and its films. See more »

Quotes

JSSDF Soldier: [the JSSDF army is completely overwhelming NERV HQ, when suddenly a crucifix-shaped burst of energy comes from the lake outside] What the hell is that?
JSSDF Commander: [EVA-02, piloted by Asuka, rises from the lake lifting a battleship in its hands, its eyes glowing like a demon's] Dear God!
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: Schwein-hund!
[Asuka flings the battleship at the JSSDF, resulting in a massive explosion that wipes out an entire artillery battalion]

Crazy Credits

Kadokawa Shoten, TV Tokyo, SEGA Enterprises (now SEGA-Sammy), Production IG, MOVIC, Star Child Records, Toei Animation AND Gainax all have their eye-catch sequence just after the End Of Evangelion flash card titles. This is mainly due to all eight production companies having a stake in the film. See more »

this is the end
11 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A precaution one might want to take before viewing this is: if one HASN'T seen the series they are NOT going to get this. And even if one has seen the series they still might not get all of this, but that's the beauty of Anno's masterpiece Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion. This alternate ending to the series was released after fans complained about the series original ending. If you've seen the original ending you already know that the actual "ending" analyzes the characters Shinji, Rei, Asuka, and Misato. While episode 26 of the original series is a complete fixation on Shinji, everything that happens in that episode still happens to him in the last part of this. Only his decision reverses. This shows a much more dramatic and extended version of Episodes 25 and 26 however, and answers a lot of the questions that were left at the end of the series and does a great job generating new ones. If you're a fan of the original series then this is a must see because it's way better than the original ending.
