Rebuild of Evangelion is a four-film series from Studio Gainax that is a re-imagining of the Neon Genesis Evangelion television series. Each movie is given a numerical designation (1.0, 2.0, etc.) upon its theatrical release. The number is then amended (1.1, 1.11, etc.) for its home video releases as more footage is added. The first and second films re-told a highly modified version of the storyline from the original series which covered the major events up to the end of episode 20, while 3.0 is set fourteen years after the end of 2.0 and covered a completely new sequence of events.

Currently three of four Rebuild films have been released. While the title of the third instalment combined with its rather bizarre departure from the original series led to many concluding that director Hideaki Anno was trolling his fans again and had no intention of ever making a fourth part, particularly when a fall 2015 release date came and went without any comment, teaser material began to appear in mid-2017 and it is believed the final part will be released sometime in 2018.

  • Evangelion: 1.XX You Are (Not) Alone
  • Evangelion: 2.XX You Can (Not) Advance
  • Evangelion: 3.XX You Can (Not) Redo
  • Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 (working title)

Pistols

Heckler & Koch USP

Ryoji Kaji is seen in the Evangelion 3.0 "preview" at the end of 2.0 aiming what resembles a Heckler & Koch USP with a laser sight mounted underneath the barrel.

Submachine Guns

Heckler and Koch MP7A1

NERV Tactical soldiers can be seen armed with what appear to be Heckler & Koch MP7A1 submachine guns.

Machine Guns

Browning/Sumitomo M2HB

The Browning/Sumitomo M2HB is seen in the first three movies used in UN Army military vehicles.

What appears to be a UNA Type 10 MBT is parked in a parking lot. You can see the mounted M2HB as an anti-personnel/aircraft weapon.

Mounted Weapons

Bofors 40mm

Misato's fleet, seen in the third movie, includes five Iowa-class battleships: this is one more than were ever built in real life, though given 1980s refits of the never-built USS Illinois and USS Kentucky turned up in the original series, it seems the Evangelion world works a little differently in that regard. Strangely, these five are shown in their WW2 configuration, with multiple Bofors 40mm quad installations which were removed from all real Iowas during their refits.

M269 Launcher Loader Module

M269 Modules mounted on UN Army-controlled MLRS are used to fire M26 rockets at Sachiel when it begins to approach Tokyo-3 in the first movie. This scene is based on a similar scene from the first episode of the original TV series.
