This is the first ever release outside of Asia for the Evangelion franchise and the film that Anime fans have been waiting for for over 25 years! The March 2021 Japan premiere grossed more than $86 million dollars with more than 6.3 million attendees – making this the highest grossing movie of the year in Japan and the 35th highest grossing movie of all time.
Best known for his ’90s output with animation studio Gainax – home to the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series – award-winning Japanese producer and composer Shiro SAGISU bridges the gap between the worlds of sight and sound.
Thrice Upon a Time releases on Amazon Prime Video today and features an electric original score with 54 tracks by Shiro SAGISU that is definitely worth the wait.
