International fans would have to wait a little longer for the movie’s international release.
The Evangelion franchise is finally coming to an end with its final movie Rebuild 3.0 + 1.0 already released in Japan after numerous delays. The conclusion movie of the Evangelion Rebuild series was originally set to be released in theaters last June 27, 2020, but due to the pandemic, it has been delayed for quite some time.
Last March 8, 2021, Khara has officially released the much-awaited final film for the Rebuild series in Japan, which garnered millions of ticket sales in its opening week. However, it seems like there has been no news about when the international release is set for the final movie.
While the wait seems to be so far away, fans can spend the time watching other mecha animes on Netflix or on other anime streaming platforms while waiting for the international release of Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0.
Ghost In The Shell
One of the most definitive anime films to ever come out in the 90s that redefined the cyberpunk genre was Ghost In The Shell. A lot of anime series and live-action movies have been inspired by this magnificent film that had such in-depth storytelling that current anime series just don’t have it anymore.
The plot centers on Maj, a cyborg federal agent trailing the Puppet Master who can illegally hack through the computerized minds of cyborg-human hybrids. This pursuit leads her to wonder about herself, who was also a cyborg. As the story progresses, Maj becomes curious about her identity and further explores her true self.
Along the same wavelength as the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise, Ghost In The Shell was truly a classic that shouldn’t be slept on.
Tegen Toppa Gurren Lagann
From the same studio producers of the original Evangelion series, Studio GAINAX never fails to deliver one of the best mecha animes in one of their prime times. Gurren Lagann was released in the late 2000s that also became a gamechanger for the genre of super robot in animation.
The plot begins with Simon and Kamina, two teenagers who have lived their lives underground until they discovered a giant robot which they decide whether or not to head to the surface alongside the machinery. The duo then finds out that humans have been slaves to a ruling alien nation above them all this time.
Based on its first anime series, Macross 7, Macross Frontier is set 50 years after the original storyline of the Macross franchise took place. The show does not only focus on the musical idol genre but also brings the help of this musicality into the mecha anime series.
Released in 2008, Macross Frontier focuses on the colonization aboard the original Macross Frontier ship. Take note that the series takes place 50 years after the original series, so it’s totally a whole new era for the fans to discover.
