Mahiro Maeda’s Evangelion 3.33 Drafts Shown Off in Digest Video
To celebrate the release of Evangelion 3.333 on 4K Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray today in Japan, the King Amusement Creative YouTube channel released a small 1 minute and 46-second sample of the 21-minute imageboard visualization by Mahiro Maeda that is released in the collection, depicting the first draft of the original Evangelion 3.0 film.
The Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray of Evangelion 3.333 will also come with all the features from the 3.33 releases as well the trailers for 3.333 and the script from dialogue recording. Under the supervision of Hideaki Anno, Evangelion 3.333 was completely reshot for 4K, using updated technology that wasn't around when the film was first released in 2012. While the overall story wasn't changed, some scenes were altered as well as some visuals were updated to be more in line with Evangelion 3.0+1.0.
The Blu-ray was released today in Japan, with no mention of an international release at this stage.
