Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance

 (2009)

Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The second film in the four-part silver-screen remake of sci-fi anime classic Neon Genesis Evangelion, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance continues the familiar story established in the first film, while also reimagining the series with new characters and arcs. Picking up where You Are (Not) Alone left off, the second feature introduces two more EVA pilots - Asuka who moves in with Shinji and Misato and throws their world into further confusion, and new character Mari, a mysterious pilot from Europe. As the war against the Angels rages on, more light is shed on the true motives and powers behind NERV and Gendo Ikari and SEELE's secret project.

Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance blasts onto Blu-ray with a brilliantly sharp and colorful AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is one of the nicest looking anime Blu-rays we've yet been offered, with a really nice combination of CGI and traditional cel animation. The disparity between the two kinds of techniques is artfully handled, but some may find the hand drawn elements to be lacking in the "wow" factor that the CGI elements display. As with the previous Evangelion film, this offering fairly erupts with bright color and some really gorgeously rendered lighting effects. Effulgent streams of light are almost volcanic at times throughout the film, and there is a really sumptuous array of gorgeously saturated colors utilized throughout.


Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

I'm a little bit torn about which audio track to recommend to first time viewers of Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance, but the good news is, whichever you do choose to listen to, you're going to get a bombastically fun audio ride courtesy of two lossless Dolby TrueHD 6.1 tracks, one in English and the other in the original Japanese. The issue with the Japanese is that there is a wealth of background "noise", as in supplementary levels of dialogue (almost like in a Howard Hawks film) which is simply not dealt with in the English subtitles. Also, some of the characters attempt halting quasi-English on the Japanese track (don't ask me why), and it can be quite difficult to understand them. For that reason, I'm leaning toward recommending that you stick with the English dub, which is really rather artful, for your first excursion through Evangelion. That way you get all of the multilayers of information, especially within the bowels of NERV. Later, you can go back and experience the original Japanese track and not feel like you're missing anything. One way or the other, both of these tracks are absolutely a whirlwind of surround activity, with boisterous LFE erupting from the subwoofer and a virtually nonstop array of effects populating the surrounds. While the mix is intentionally quite busy most of the time, clarity is never sacrificed in either mix, and dialogue is always presented cleanly and crisply. One niggling complaint for some may be the at times obtrusive and really rather anachronistic score, which at times at least doesn't really seem to support the onscreen action.
