Latest Evangelion Trailer Reveals A January Release Date

The years-in-the-making Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 was supposed to be out this year. It was delayed due to covid-19, and the eagerly anticipated movie’s latest trailer now reveals a January 2020 release date.

Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 is slated to be the fourth and last entry in the Rebuild of Evangelion series. Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, the third entry, was released in 2012.

You can watch the trailer below.

The movie will now be out on January 23, 2021 in Japan. It has yet to get an international release date.


As previously reported, the upcoming entry was supposed to be finished even earlier, but Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno got busy with his live-action Godzilla movie—a delay for which he apologized.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Several days ago, I began watching the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series for the first time, on Netflix. I went in completely blind, knowing nothing about it. I’m really enjoying it so far and eager to finish it so I can start checking out the movies, at least two of which are also on Netflix.

Not many TV shows get to me emotionally, but I feel like I can relate to Shinji because his relationship with his father somewhat mirrors my own (except my father was not a mad scientist). I genuinely got misty at the end of the most recent episode I watched, in which Shinji barely survives being trapped inside his depleted Eva while it was held in some sort of pocket dimension by a sphere-type angel.

My only complaint about the show so far is that there is no apparent reason for the angels to only attack Japan. Maybe that will be explained later? I have a hunch but I’m eager to see if I’m right.
