Evangelion 2.0 at UH-Manoa

January 27th, 2010

This image was originally supposed to go with a "Shinji Ikari Raising Project" review. Which is still coming. Eventually.While doing some poking around the Internet researching subjects to write about for the next edition of Cel Shaded (certain to come Feb. 2 now that I’m not sick; sorry for the lack of a column on Tuesday), I came upon a recent announcement from the University of Hawaii at Manoa Anime and Manga Society. If you don’t have any plans Friday evening — and enjoy the Evangelion franchise, to boot — you may now have something to do.

From 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday at Moore Hall room 119, the group plans to screen the movie Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance, the second film in the “Rebuild of Evangelion” re-imagining of the TV series. Everything I said about the film when it came to the Hawaii International Film Festival in October still applies: Shinji and Rei battle Angels, Asuka shows up with a new last name, Gainax makes millions licensing more crazy Evangelion merchandise.  Or something like that, anyway.

Pizza and soda will be served, and a raffle will be held for a pass for Kawaii Kon later this year. For more information, visit the group’s Facebook page.
