Amazon Licenses Evangelion 3.0+1.01
At the start of this month, Amazon Prime, Toho Animation, and Toei Company came up with a joint statement.

It has been more than four months since the film came out in the theatres. So, if you have access to Japanese accounts, then skim through the following subheads to find out about a solid release date.
