‘Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time’ Review – A Beautiful Ending To A Fantastic Series

If you enjoyed the post, follow here:

After 9 long years, I finally was blessed by Hideaki Anno’s Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, and my god, what a beautiful film. The emotions I’ve felt was like no other while I was watching the film that’s for sure. Let’s jump into this spoiler-free review, also, I’m wearing my EVA-01 hat while I type this.

Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time is the fourth and final film of the Rebuild of Evangelion films, and a goodbye to all of Evangelion. The film picks up right where Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo ended, and it’s up to Shinji Ikari, Asuka Langley, Rei Ayanami, Mari Makinami and the Wille Organzation to stop Gendo Ikari from restarting Unit-13 before he creates another impact! You won’t be ready what awaits you when you watch this film because it’s one hell of an emotional rollercoaster.

I’ve never been so satisfied with an ending like this in such a long time. You can tell Hidekai Anno was putting his all in this film because from beginning to end, it did not miss. And man, the final act of the film ties-up so many loose ends, and not just the film series, but the original anime as well. Amazing character developments, incredible dialogue, and an ending that lands.

To me, Thrice Upon a Time solidified the fact that Evangelion is the best anime of all time. If you’re a fan, the final film really rewards you and gives the closure you need, especially if you’ve been following the franchise for a long time.

The music produced in this film was like drinking a nice red wine on a gorgeous beach while watching the sunset. Shirō Sagisu has been composing Evangelion since the original anime in 1995, and he really understands what was needed to be done. The score played a purpose for everything such as the emotions, action, the down time, etc. Shit, I think I almost even cried just from the music alone. Again, Shirō Sagisu has been there from the start like Hidekai Anno, so if there’s anyone who knows Evangelion then it’s Sagisu.

When it comes to the animation, it was incredible just like the last 3 films. I loved the way the film looked, the character designs, background, movements, and more. Even the CGI surprised me, especially because as a fan of anime I feel like CGI in anime don’t always translate well, but it worked here. The action looked damn good, especially the final fight! Toru Fukushi (cinematographer),Tomoyuki Ogata and Hideaki Anno (both producers) really made magic that’s for sure.

I’ve only seen the movie dubbed because that’s how I’m used to watching the franchise, but it was a job well done. If you’ve watched the original ADV Films English dubbed for the anime series, then you’ll be happy to know that Spike Spencer (Shinji), Allison Keith (Misato), Amanda Winn-Lee (Rei), and Tiffany Grant (Asuka) all returned for this film, which was genius! I felt like a kid again hearing these actors return to play these characters one last time. Also, even new actors who joined the film did a great job as well.

I’m going to rewatch the whole series, both anime and films, in Japanese so I can’t get a different feel for it. Again, the English cast did a great job!

Hideaki Anno, cast, crew, and everyone involved with Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time did a superb job. All the years of waiting finally paid off, and honestly, I think it was released at the right time as well. As a fan, I’m incredibly happy with this film.

It really is goodbye huh? I guess we all have to say goodbye to the things we love one day.
