OMG! What?!

Yeah the Eva 2.22 sales are going to be ridiculous... 1.11 was already pretty amazing considering it was mostly recap... and I can only see more momentum gaining for the third and fourth movies.

The next movies will be a long wait, but that's only going to add to the anticipation.... the effort expended making these films is so monumental it's almost as epic as the fictional eva projects themselves.
