It’s finally here! On behalf of the UTW-THORA team, I proudly present to you the third Rebuild of Evangelion movie!

UTW was only two months old when we released the EVA 2.22 movie almost three years ago, and at the time I wasn’t expecting to be working on the third movie. But here we are today, with pretty much the same team, but with three years extra experience!

We’ve teamed up with THORAnime once again to bring you this release. Head over to their site too to give them your thanks!

A few smallish translation/editing notes off the top of my head:

[spoiler]1) I’ve decided to translate パターン青 (literally “pattern blue”) as “blood type blue” in this release, in line with the official English rendition of the term. I used “pattern orange” in 2.22 (pattern blue was never spoken).
2) All other translations for in-universe terminologies are consistent with our 2.22 release, including “Battle Stations One/Two” (it’s translated as “Condition II” on-screen in the movie, but not only is it a somewhat lossy translation, it would also be a problem when we have to distinguish it from another formation later on, which we have translated as “Guard State One/Two”).
3) The term “Lilin” is treated as a collective noun (i.e. like the word “humanity”) in the release. It’ll make sense to those of you who know what the term refers to in the EVA universe.
4) The “networking” part of Asuka’s nickname for Mari (“Networking Four-eyes”) refers to how Mari supposedly used her network of acquaintances to become an EVA pilot (we used “Favored Four-Eyes” in the preview). I thought it was a closer translation than what we had before (read here for more info) but the meaning seems to be lost to some of you, so I apologize for that.[/spoiler]

Special thanks go to fnord, Minami, and archdeco for their work on the ED kara.

Please enjoy!

    Thanks for the release it looks awesome!!!!

    There wouldn’t happen to be a 8bit 1080p version of this would there?, I would really like to watch it in full bd then just 720p, if not then that’s fine

    There is a 47 GB bluray rip available on U****T .

    To the implied question of “why 10 bit an d not 8 like the original” . in 4:2:0 colourspace is not true 24 bit is not available for every pixel. To compensate for that dithering is used , dithering is what is used in black and white newspapers for example to generate the grays of a photo. In the case of video this is more nuanced since it doesn’t need to go from full black to full white but from one shade of a color to a quite near one.

    When encoding in hi10p , the original frame , when being encoded loses some detail where there is little to no contrast with adjourning blocks (ie mainly the parts that are dithered) the resulting image has a higher colourspace that is arguably closer to the original frame before being encoded in 8 bit on the bluray.

    In extremis , imagine the original of a picture has a green part. it has to be encoded into a lower colourspace where green is not available. That green is replaced by alternating yellow and blue pixels. Due to the lack of bandwidth in further conversion that checkboard of blue and yellow is made into a green patch again, then re-encoded in a colourspace where green is available…

    Dithering uses a lot of bandwidth , and is a “patch” for a lack of colourspace.
    Using hi10p mitigates the impact of a “loss of detail” which in reality is a “loss of dithering”.

    In the same line of thought , downscaling also creates new colours. This is also a reason why encoding in hi10p of broadcast anime (broadcast in 1440×1080 downscaled to 1280×720) is a good thing.

  9. Peejays on May 1, 2013 at 9:52 am said:

    HI10p uses 4:2:2 colourspace. HI444pp uses 4:4:4 colourspace (24 bits per pixel for every pixel).

    I personally have encoded pieces of video using HI444pp (scaled down video from 4K to 720p) The impact on the video size is very very acceptable, mainly due to the fact gradients can stay gradients and don’t need to be dithered. If source material in full 24 bit were to be available , hi444pp would be a very good option for encoding. Since a few years there are x264 builds who offer that option. Most codecs also decode it (added about the same time hi10p was added) Encoding a dithering heavy video from a limited colourspace source into HI444pp does take it’s toll and is not advisable.

    Thanks Peejays for the reply, although i could only understand half of it (lol) i will watch the 720p ver. and ill download the 1080p ver. also to watch later on if i ever get a better pc.

    Thanks again UTW/THORA i have all you Evangelion releases and now i have another to add to my collection

    Now we I’ll need to wait like another 3 years for 4.44(4.04?). When I was watching 3.33 I was like “Everybody finds love in the end, yeah?” …. and then Anno punch. This movie was so lonely, I felt exactly what Shinji felt- loneliness, confusion, fear, destruction of psyche. I would gladly accept Rebuild 2.775 to tell us what happened between 2.22 and 3.33 if it won’t be the part of 4.0. Even as 30min OVA. Movie felt so short… hope 4.0 will be like 3-4h long.

    Hello, I was wondering where the new episodes of Photokano and Suisei no Gargantia are? Will you release them soon?

  13. WanderingSteve on May 2, 2013 at 4:13 pm said:

    First of all, thank you to UTW for the time and effort put into this release. It will tide many of us over until an official U.S.A. blu-ray release.

    I have had trouble using mkv2vob to convert the 720p mkv file into a file I can place on my 16GB thumb drive and watch on my PS3, and I was wondering if there’s anyone who can help.

    Trying to do it the normal way (simply adding the file to mkv2vob), I get an error that says the tsmuxer isn’t working. If I click on cancel, it still proceeds with the process, beginning with transcoding the audio, which takes a short bit. Then, it transcodes the video, which takes an unusually looong time. It finishes the conversion, but the video of the file ends up as less than spectacular, with random blockyness of varying colors and color bleeds. The video seems watchable, but nothing like it should look (the original download from here is perfect).

    I’ve had the tsmuxer error before, and after a little research, found a youtube video that used/suggested a program called mkvmerge GUI. The video suggested opening the origin file in this program first, and, upon highlighting the video and audio parts, going into “extra options”, and under “cues” and “compression”, switch each option to “none”. I have tried this with an unrelated movie, and it worked. However, with the 720p Eva 3.33 file, there are 4 different parts: video, audio, subtitles, and chapters. The “extra options” for the chapters part is not changeable, though the chapters part can be unticked. So far, no luck.

    I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, or what it causing the problem, but if anyone can help, it’d be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  14. Great release you guys. Unfortunately the movie was terrible, but hopefully the next one will be alot better.

  15. tylrgamster14 on May 3, 2013 at 3:16 am said:

    Just got done watching it about 2 hours ago and man what a weird ass movie, i can tell you one thing they weren’t lying about switching the story up a bit, the ending was very weird also it did not make any since but hopefully 4.44 is more understandable. they also said they were going to switch up the ending a bit also and it kind scares me. lol

  16. @WanderingSteve I’m assuming the encoding utility part of Tsmuxer isn’t 10bit compatible?
    Obviously what you want to do is transcode the 720p 10bit release into an 720p 8bit (probably hardsubbed into an MP4 or MKV container, as I doubt PS3 has xy-VSFilter to effectively render the softsubbed ED kara).
    You just need to find a transcode utility that supports 10bit if you don’t want to learn command-line x264.
    Every utility does the same thing really – it demuxs the video and audio and encodes them separately and muxes them back into the container afterwards.

    Nice work… Can you send the srt file you used in the mp4 version. I won’t modify it, but I would like to try to encode a mp4 in HD 1080 for my Ipad.

  18. sidagupanjang on May 4, 2013 at 10:17 am said:

    thanks a lot, this is great 😀
    i hope the 1st live action in the beginning will be sub too

  19. BlueHamachi on May 5, 2013 at 5:13 am said:

    As I was posting the running length time of the movie, I noticed it was 96 minutes, which, according to the Wikipedia article, is the theatrical cut. Supposedly, and I checked on Amazon, the uncut version is 105 minutes. Can you confirm that there is such a thing as an uncut version?

  20. BlueHamachi on May 5, 2013 at 5:20 am said:

    Ah never mind, it’s probably the short film that extends it by another 9 minutes.

  21. Charkelle on May 9, 2013 at 8:34 am said:

    So I finally got around to watching this… And I feel like they somehow managed to make this one even more confusing than the original series was. I wasn’t sure that was even possible. If the intent was to make the viewer feel as lost as Shinji was, I’d say they succeeded there.

    I still enjoyed it overall, and can sort of connect the dots in some cases based on the original, but with everything that’s already been changed I can’t say for sure there. I just hope the next one gives us some answers. This one kind of overloaded us with questions as it is, and answered very few of them. I can only imagine how confused the people who have never seen the original series must be, as things probably make a lot less sense without that to make comparisons to.

    Also, as much as Shinji’s character still annoys me at times, I actually found him easier to sympathize with here than I usually do (I don’t hate Shinji like some people do, but I’ve always found him hard to actually like). I don’t see how anyone could expect him to act all that much different than he did while refusing to tell him anything at all. Really, the only time he actually started annoying me again was from the point with the spears on, before that his behaviour was really perfectly understandable considering what had happened and how nobody would actually tell him anything.

  22. Fiyú on May 12, 2013 at 12:41 am said:

    At 35min3-4sec, is that an actual tiny weensy little animation flunk? In Kaworu’s motion, the last frame that is held before Shinji’s face is seen seems to abruptly halt, feeling a bit off.

  23. Chris on May 12, 2013 at 8:26 pm said:

    I’m now convinced that Hideaki Anno never actually knew how to give Evangelion a proper ending.

  24. Thanks for the release, much appreciated.

    I grabbed the 1080p copy but it doesn’t seem to play on the WDTV but it does play on PC. What’s the codec that the WDTV isn’t picking up?

  25. Charl on May 14, 2013 at 5:24 pm said:

    Just want to say thank you as I have been dying to watch this and this will keep me going till I can buy it on dvd in the UK!

  26. This was awesome, please tell me you’re doing the final movie 😀

    First of all I wanted to say thanks for your work and everything but…

    I have one important question, can you say to us how long it will take for you to finish subtitles for that special live action movie on begin of Evangelion ?

  28. SomeDuder on May 19, 2013 at 6:32 pm said:

    Could anyone (UTW preferred, of course) post the settings to reencode this to 8-bit with x264? (I’m using a hardware player to watch my media, most don’t support 10-bit yet)

  29. azwald on May 29, 2013 at 8:12 pm said:

    10 minutes live action english subbed
    the quality might be not as good as UTW, but at least we got English sub now

  30. SomeGuy on May 31, 2013 at 6:10 am said:

    Hi, thanks for your great translation. But I want to ask you about the meaning of a line that I couldn’t understand.
    Here is the line: “Transition shift to seven.”

    Okay, now. What does seven represent in this line? and by “Transition” do you mean something like a formation? dose the whole line mean something like: Change the formation to the seventh?

    Thanks for anyone who can help 🙂

    What player can I use to watch w/subtitles? I’ve tried with the latest build of MPC but subs are unavailable and there was no sub pack with the DL.

  33. Kayllin on July 19, 2013 at 12:57 am said:

    There are always subtitles in fansubs, if you check with mkvcleaver you will see that there is a separate .ass file which is the subtitle file.
