The main poster, drawn by Atsushi Nishigori, got an English update:
Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time is the last installment in the Rebuild of Evangelion film franchise, that reimagines (or continues, depending on which theory you subscribe to) the Evangelion story. It is set to be the longest film of the franchise, with a runtime of 2 hours and 34 minutes.
The OTAQUEST staff are huge fans of the series. We recently shared our thoughts in a very opinionated podcast on Twitch, and we have written extensively on hot issues like the Evangelion ending, the merchandise aesthetic, the best episodes, Toji Suzuhara and Ritsuko Akagi, and how it would be to work for NERV.
We also have a very handy guide for the BEST way to watch the Evangelion series and movies.
