Crazy Credits

Presented as if it is 'Episode 25' and 'Episode 26' of the TV series "Neon Genesis Evangelion". Although the film begins with eight logos, there are no opening credits save for a title reading 'Episode 25: Love is Destructive'. There is a full credit roll at the halfway point of the film, which is the end of 'Episode 25.' The second half of the film is 'Episode 26', and the beginning of this part is the only time the title "The End of Evangelion" is ever displayed, preceded by a dedication from Anno to the animation staff. At the very end of the film (and of 'Episode 26') is a simple 'THE END' title screen, and no ending credits See more »

Alternate Versions

There are a few minor differences in the "Genesis 13 and 14" Japanese home video version of the film. This version has not been released outside of Japan: (a. In the original theatrical version of the film, the credits for the entire movie ran halfway through (after the first episode, "Air/ Love is Destructive") on a red, spinning CG Helix, with the full version of "THANATOS
  • If I Can't Be Yours" playing. Episode 26 ends with a black screen. In the "Genesis 13 and 14" home video edition, each episode has its own set of credits scrolling against a different background. Episode 25's credits play to an abridged version of THANATOS, while Episode 26 (to the dismay of many) was given its own set of credits, playing to a sped up version of "Jesus bliebt meine Freunde". (b. A "preview" for episode 26 was added after the first set of credits. This was not present in the theatrical version. (c. Before Shinji begins strangling Asuka within his psychological montage, the kanji for "No" appears in a word bubble beside Asuka's face in response to his request. In the original theatrical version of the film, the word was spoken.

One of the greatest animated movies of all time
4 October 2018 | by elmatoleSee all my reviews

Symbolism, great plot and memorable scenes make The end of Evangelion the best movie based on a TV series. This movie is the continuation of the best anime of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion, so if you haven't watched Neon Genesis, you shouldn't watch this movie, otherwise you will feel confused and the movie may feel pretentious.
