Once Again, Hikaru Utada Is Singing The Rebuild of Evangelion Theme

Next January, the fourth and final film in the Rebuild of Evangelion series will hit Japanese movie theaters. And of course, Hikaru Utada will once again sing the theme.


The theme for Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time will be Utada’s “One Last Kiss.” Previously, she sang the themes for the earlier three films in the Rebuild of Evangelion series:

“Beautiful World” from Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

“Beautiful World (Planitb Acoustica Mix)“ from Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance [Eds Note: This song is only available to Music Premium members.]

“Sakura Nagashi” for Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo

The video for the forthcoming “One Last Kiss” has yet to be revealed, but could well be before the movie’s release.

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


Always glad to hear Utada Hikaru in these movies as it reminds me of when her career was taking off during my study abroad in the early 00s. A fellow student of mine was a perfect vocal copy during karaoke (along with BoA as well).
