Crazy Credits

Presented as if it is 'Episode 25' and 'Episode 26' of the TV series "Neon Genesis Evangelion". Although the film begins with eight logos, there are no opening credits save for a title reading 'Episode 25: Love is Destructive'. There is a full credit roll at the halfway point of the film, which is the end of 'Episode 25.' The second half of the film is 'Episode 26', and the beginning of this part is the only time the title "The End of Evangelion" is ever displayed, preceded by a dedication from Anno to the animation staff. At the very end of the film (and of 'Episode 26') is a simple 'THE END' title screen, and no ending credits See more »

An impressive ending to an excellent series
18 June 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is an impressive ending to the excellent Evangelion saga. Everything that you thought should be in the last two episodes but were not there is here from massacre to evisceration. This film, however, is not totally different from the last two episodes. It basically shows what happened in real life before and while Shinji performs his self-assessment in episode 25 and 26. Many of the scenes that are shown vaguely in the two episodes are clarified in this film (for example, the Misato and Ritsuko scenes).
