Evangelion 2.22 breaks 800k preorders

The Nikkan Sports newspaper reports on Tuesday that over 800,000 copies of the DVD and Blu-ray releases of Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) film have been pre-ordered. The film’s Japanese home video distributor King Records will ship its release on May 26. According to King Records, Evangelion: 2.22’s 800,000 pre-orders far surpasses the 500,000 copies in the first shipment for last year’s hit film, the manga-based live-action Rookies: Graduation (Rookies -Sotsugyō-).

    In other news, Houkago Tea Time tops Oricon’s charts at #1 and #2, Go! Go! Maniac! and Listen!! respectively.


    Anime is keeping the Japanese economy alive, without a doubt.

    @Phocus: I can’t believe people /actually/ bought the ear rape OP single. I downloaded a sample copy and immediately deleted it.

    And I keep shit like Ladies vs Butlers! Character Song Singles. In FLAC.

    It’s not too bad when you get used to it. Kinda something like a higher-pitched Disappearance of Hatsune Miku.

    That OP is like ear cancer, lol. Cannot believe that whole 30 seconds is engrish dribble.
    And get a PS3 Kuro :D it’ll solve lotsa problems, minus the money.
