Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Listed as One of Longest Animated Films Ever

evangelion 3.0

We may not have a new release date for Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time yet, but thanks to a rating from the Japanese Film Classification and Rating Organization, AKA EIRIN, we now know how long it’s going to be. Amazingly, the runtime puts the latest Eva movie in place as one of the longest animated films ever.

According to the EIRIN listing, the G-classified (all audiences) Evangelion 3.0+1.0 clocks in at 2 hours and 34 minutes long. That makes it the longest Eva film to date outside of compilations like the 2021 combined screening of Death & Rebirth—which boasts a 160 minute run time—and puts it behind fellow lengthy champions Final Yamato (70mm version) and The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the latter of which reigns supreme at 2 hours and 42 minutes.

Here’s the listing, which has since been removed:
