The day is finally here! After a delay from the pre-order set in 2013, the long-awaited movie is out and we do (not) have to make you wait any longer. Evangelion 3.33 is out on Blu-ray and DVD, and you can get your hands on it today! Not only will you be getting huge robotic battles in HD glory, but it comes with features from Japanese and English theatrical releases, EVA-Extras, and a 20-page art book!
Shinji Ikari just woke up in his Eva unit fourteen years after starting the Third Impact. He hasn’t aged, but everything else has changed. The earth is in ruins. Rei is missing. The people he once protected treat him like a prisoner and threaten to kill him if he pilots another Eva.
When he escapes to the remains of NERV headquarters, Shinji meets pianist Kaworu, who is destined to be Shinji’s copilot in a new dual-cockpit Eva. As the boys bond, NERV’s true mission begins to come into focus. Lost in a labyrinth of deception, Shinji careens toward a mental breakdown that could bring about the end of humanity.
Evangelion 3.33 continues the groundbreaking rebuild with stunning robot battles and mind-bending revelations. The end of every world has a beginning.
You may remember all the celebration pics we took over the last year commemorating our favorite swimboys’ birthdays. We had a blast making homemade desserts and setting up perfect photos of the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys’ special days. We want to see how you’ll celebrate this Valentine’s Day in the best way possible—surrounded by totems or romantic Valentine’s dinners with your favorite good-looking 2D swimmers. And hey, if you aren’t really into the idea of loving any one Free! boy, we’ll totally take celebratory photos of your favorite pairs of boys…
Send us your pics of how YOU’RE celebrating Valentine’s day with your favorite Free! boy(s) by February 15, and we’ll share them on the Free! ES Facebook page and Tumblr! Also, we’ll giving away a prize pack of Free! ES merchandise (as we always do with this show) to our favorite entry.
How can you submit? We’re giving you a ton of ways where we’ll repost entries as we get them and share the final set the day after Valentine’s:

Looking to actually spend some quality time with Free! -Eternal Summer-? Don’t forget to grab the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, which includes the full season + the exclusive never-before-streamed water gun fight OVA full episode! The Limited and Premium Editions come with a gorgeous water gloss box reminiscent of the Japanese releases, and all sets include both the English dub AND the original Japanese with English subtitles. Pre-order here!
We’ve had a wave of recent announcements and events for the swimming anime phenomenon Free! -Eternal Summer-, but we’re not done yet! Today, fresh from our AnimeExpo panel, we’re revealing two new big pieces of news—a Free! ES Premium Edition AND news about the long-awaited OVA episode!
The Premium Edition will include not only the Free! -Eternal Summer- Limited Edition that we unveiled earlier this month (featuring that gorgeous rigid chipboard box with water gloss effect!) but also these collectibles you can’t get anywhere else:
A full-color art book, including many gorgeous pieces exclusive only to the original Japanese releases
Seven glossy art cards also using exclusive, highly detailed art from the covers of the Japanese releases—you’ll definitely want to frame these
A color sports towel, so you can take the boys to the pool or beach!
An Iwatobi and a Samezuka decal to show off your school pride
And finally, everything housed in a handsome collector’s box to hold all your Free! collectibles
PLUS! Customers who pre-order the Premium Edition from FUNimation.com will automatically be entered to win a gorgeously sculpted 1/8 scale figure of everyone’s favorite water-lover, Haruka Nanase, from Alter! These highly detailed figures are sold out in Japan and pretty rare to find, so order by September 29 to get a shot.
We’ve also been receiving a lot of questions about the Free! -Eternal Summer- OVA, a special unaired full episode featuring the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys in an intense, dramatic, no-holds-barred (and totally hilarious) water gun battle. We’re excited to finally announce that we do have the rights to this OVA, and it will be released in 2016.
We know that some fans hoped the OVA would be included in the Eternal Summer release. Given the Japanese release dates, we’ve decided to release the OVA separately in order to be able to release the season on home video this year. Since we’ve seen such a huge outpouring of passion and excitement for this title, we definitely don’t want to make you guys wait til 2016 for the entire release.
D-Frag! releases next Tuesday (4/28) and hopefully you’re as excited as we are!
