Evangelion 1.11 – You Are (Not) Alone

Neon Genesis Evangelion, the first series back in 1996 was made out of Hideaki Anno’s depression. He wanted to redeem himself from a four year slump of being lazy. Then he succeeded. Neon Genesis Evangelion was a hit, despite some controversies. A decade later, Anno and his folks decided to reboot the series. His goal was to make Eva “as he envisioned it” and have a proper ending out of it. The reboot or “rebuild” is split into four parts. With only one movie remaining, I’ve decided to review the first three movies. Starting with Evangelion 1.11. Fun fact: It was titled Evangelion 1.0 in the theaters and 1.11 for home release. This would continue for the other movies.



Shinji Ikari reunites with his father but not for love, but for piloting an Evangelion to combat the unknown beings called Angels.


Okay, up front. Evangelion 1.11 is the series’ first six episodes, remastered, reanimated, redubbed, everything. It cuts somewhat pointless scenes from the series, and was condensed nicely into movie form. If you’ve been trying to watch the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime but can’t because of its oldness, then this movie may be your entry point.

Personally, I still didn’t like Shinji in this movie, and it’s safe to say that you won’t too. He’s just your typical emo, or even worse. He prefers to be with himself, wanders around the city, sleep in the streets. All because of his depression with his father and piloting the Eva. But everything else from this movie is great. The mystery of the Evas, the angels , this post-apocalyptic world. It can be very interesting. The last fight from this movie defines why it’s titled You Are Not (Alone), I just realized that fact when I re-watched the movie again.



Like I said, everything from the series is back. Frame by frame. But redrawn. It’s like the original FFVII intro movie into this. All the framing, blocking has been restored and upgraded. Click here for proof.

The Evas and the Angels are made into 3D, which I have mixed feeling for. Some of the angels from the original series, were better looking, but all in all it’s fine. The original voice actors return which is awesome, and even the soundtrack! Also do not watch 1.0 or 1.01, strictly get a copy of 1.11. It’s because the other two versions are very dark. I don’t know why the brightness there is so low but they managed to fix it here in 1.11.
