Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

Evangelion is finally coming to an end.

Starting in 2007, it was rebooted as the “Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition” series and split up into three films so far, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. The fourth and final film of the series, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time has now been finalized.

Evangelion’s themes of “What is the essence of a person?” and “Why do people live?” are universal questions that apply to every generation. Shinji, Rei, Asuka, and Mari are all characters brimming with individuality, and as they pilot the artificial Evangelions, they search for new ways of living.

Striving to recreate the epic worldbuilding of the original, the creators make full use of the latest digital technology. With updated animations and visuals, beautiful designs and colors, and character expressions full of emotion, they are bound to touch your heart.

Hideaki Anno, the director of the recent blockbuster Shin Godzilla, which grossed over 8 billion yen at the box office, has a unique style of storytelling that is fast-paced, compelling, and rich in content. Director Anno has now returned to his origins in the animation field with new concepts and feelings, ready to tell us the rest of the story that has been sealed away ever since Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo was released in 2012.

In its first appearance in 1995, the TV series Neon Genesis Evangelion became a social phenomenon, drawing interest from not only anime fans but artists and scholars alike. Now, after 25 years, we will be able to see Eva, which has continued to be a major influence in the world of animation, through to the very end.

100-nichi kan Ikita Wani

A crocodile lives his regular life with his animal friends unaware that he will die in 100 days.

It’s March and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Everyone has gathered at the spot for the cherry blossom viewing party, but Wani is nowhere to be found. Nezumi, Wani’s best friend, is getting worried, so he leaves on his motorcycle to pick him up. On his way there, Nezumi takes a picture of some cherry blossoms and sends it to his friends. As he continues on his way, he finds a phone with a cracked screen on the road displaying that exact picture. It’s none other than Wani’s!

100 days prior to the cherry blossom viewing party, Wani was living an ordinary life. He would visit Nezumi in the hospital and make him laugh with his favorite one-liners, talk on the phone with his mother who sends him mandarin oranges every year, pursue his crush on his coworker, get ramen with his friend, play his favorite games, play basketball, watch movies, and do other day-to-day things.

100 days have passed since the cherry blossom viewing party. The pink flowers of the cherry trees are no more and the trees are rich with green leaves. The petals that were once fluttering to the ground have turned into rain. Unable to face the memories they had with Wani, his friends start contacting each other less and less. That is when someone new comes to their town—an assertive frog. Nezumi and the others are puzzled by the frog, but they continue on with their lives that will never be as they once were. This is a story that could happen to anyone.

Gyokou no Nikuko-chan

A comedic mother and daughter coming of age story by award winning Kanako Nishi, writer of the novel by the same title, which has sold over 350,000 copies.

Nikuko-chan’s loving personality has attracted nothing but bad men in her life and she has been fooled by them time and time again. Compared to her outrageously loud and excitable mother who has the innocence of a child, Kikuko is a mature fifth grader who has her head on straight. Whenever Nikuko-chan’s latest relationship comes to an end, the two of them move to a different town as if they were nomads. Most recently, they have drifted to a northern fishing port town. Feeling at a loss and hungry, Nikuko-chan and Kikuko go to a barbecue restaurant at the fishing port called Uogashi to fill their bellies. The owner of the restaurant, Sassan, a widower, was intending to close it when Nikuko-chan appeared before him. He thinks she is “a goddess of meat,” and offers her employment on the condition that she never gets an upset stomach. He lets Nikuko-chan and Kikuko take up residence in the fishing boat he owns at the port, and their new life begins!

Kikuko enrolls at the local elementary school. She is good at sports, picks up the local dialect quickly, and her friends say that she’s cute. However, she starts to feel a little embarrassed about her mother, who is rumored to be a Russian Matryoshka doll and always says the first thing that pops into her head in an Osakan dialect even though she’s not from Osaka.

Meanwhile, Kikuko gets caught in annoying quarrels between different girl groups at school, which are all too common for girls her age. She also meets an eccentric boy named Ninomiya, and little by little as she grows up, she starts to really like the fishing port town. But it’s only a matter of time before Nikuko-chan’s next failed relationship, and then they’ll have to start over again in a new town. As that insecurity crosses their minds, Kikuko and Nikuko-chan’s big secret is revealed.
