Trivia

An alternate sequence was originally planned for the live-action portion of the film. In it, Shinji dreams of a world that exists without him. The sequence follows live-action versions of Asuka, Misato, and Rei in various stages of their daily lives, without NERV, Angels, or Evangelions. It ends with Asuka being followed by an "invisible" Shinji, who realizes in monologue that this is not reality. As the transition from live-action back to animation is made, Rei and Shinji discuss the nature of dreams vs. reality, as seen in the final cut of the film. Portions of this alternate sequence can be seen in the original theatrical trailer, which is shown on the R1 DVD before the movie plays. See more »

Quotes

JSSDF Soldier: [Points his pistol to Shinji's head] Sorry, kid. It's nothing personal.
Misato Katsuragi: [Shows up in another side of the hall, takes down several JSSDF soldiers and says to the last one of them] Hey, no offense taken.

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 »

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).
