Evangelion: 2.22 Film's DVD/BD Pre-Orders Top 800,000

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-).

800,000 pre-orders? That's just obscene. It's a pity that it's taken this long for it to be released in Japan though. So many overseas fans seem to be resorting to finding cam-rips of this movie from when it was in cinemas (without all the extras this 2.22 version will have), due to the long gap between screening and release on disc. Hopefully they won't have a huge wait between this and the english releases, though I don't doubt that there will be rips of this with full subtitles out barely after it's hit store shelves in Japan.
