The End of Evangelion - Theatrical Program
is a booklet in a landscape A4
setting which was first sold during The End of Evangelion
's initial theatrical run in Japan
. It originally cost ¥
800 and is black
except for a Red Cross
stamped across the cover that says "The End of Evangelion
The booklet is divided into several sections which include notations from the Japanese Voice Actors, an interview with Deputy Director Kazuya Tsurumaki and scene summaries. It also includes a Production, a Commentary and a Glossary section which were by far the most interesting because they talked about Why the films were made and what went on during their production.
The information within The End of Evangelion - Theatrical Program is considered official and canon because the booklet was approved as accurate by the Gainax staff of Evangelion, This is one of the only instances where we have heard Gainax's direct words on the different mysteries of Neon Genesis Evangelion and is considered by fans to be the one true Gospel.
