The film is divided into two episodes of approximately 45 minutes, each of which is subtitled in English Gainaxjust like the episodes of the original series: Episode 25′: Air Y Episode 26′: I’m yours to respect. The producers consider them to be an alternate ending to the TV series, or a more detailed “world” retelling of the original series ending episodes 25 and 26, taking place almost entirely in the minds of the characters. principals (style is largely determined by time and budget constraints).
Production on a filming ending for the series began in 1997, with Gainax premiering Death and Rebirth. The first part, Death, was a very condensed reimagining and remake of the TV series. The second part, Rebirth, was originally planned as a complete ending, but could not be completed (due to budget and time constraints). The project was completed by the end of the year and published as The end of Evangelion.
The IS “Episode 25′: Air“, uses the original script intended for the 25th episode of the original series and makes up about two-thirds of the previous film, reborn. The end of Evangelion after that came the second part of it Evangelion Revivalcombination of Death(real)² Y The end of Evangelion.
The ambiguous and unclear meaning of the end of the television series left many viewers and critics confused and dissatisfied. The last two episodes were arguably the most controversial parts of an already controversial series and were widely regarded as flawed and incomplete. However, Hideaki Ann and assistant director Kazuya Tsurumaki they protected the artistic integrity of the ending.

Indeed, The end of Evangelion it is closer to the original concept of the series finale, which was changed for budget and censorship issues. It is also a common belief that the “death threats” that appear on the screen i The end of Evangelion until the end of the TV series, when in fact, the death threats shown on the screen were at least, in relation to the end of the Evangelion death and rebirth. In fact, most of the “death threats” were letters of recommendation and encouragement.
Only two can truly be considered “death threats,” and only one can be considered “hate mail.” In an interview on the Tokyo International Film Festival, Anno revealed that there were legal reasons that prevented them from actually using the fan, so the team actually wrote the post. The “hate mail” letters were written by an old friend of Anno’s.
