Remastered “Evangelion: 2.22” Blu-ray and DVD Came Out!

(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 12:11 May 25, 2010)

Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance became digitally remastered as Evangelion: 2.22 for Blu-ray and DVD release. The DVD and Blu-ray in total sold more than 800,000 copies already by pre-orders.

The official release date is May 26 (tomorrow) but we were tipped off about some shops already selling it ahead of the release, so we got a copy of Blu-ray this morning at a local TSUTAYA(the biggest chain of video stores in Japan), where you can get a pretty box as a bonus to neatly keep the disc together with Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone.

They were showing the DVD version on a storefront display.

Evangelion was given one of the best spot in the store.

Some other titles of interest, like Royal Space Force('87 Gainax anime, characters designed by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto), were also recommended.

So we purchased a copy.

Made of sturdy cardboard. You can keep the Blu-ray of 2.22 together with a copy of previously released 1.11.
