Tag refers to images referencing the third installment of the Rebuild_of_Evangelion film series. It is also known as ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版：Q, Evangerion Shin Gekijōban: Kyū in Japanese or Evangelion: The New Movie: Q. The film was animated by Studio_Khara and made by the same cast and crew as its predecessors. It was released on November 3, 2012.
The film continues directly after the second film and goes further in deviating from the original series' canon to the point that all of the content in this film is brand new. If you haven't seen the second film or the third film yet, be wary of spoilers.
After Ikari Shinji risked everything to save Ayanami Rei from an Angel in the second film, he wakes up fourteen years later to find himself in captivity of a new organization named WILLE led by Katsuragi Misato. Although its staff includes members from NERV, they are now opposed to their old group. Shinji is initially happy to see his old friends again, only to be met with hostility and distrust. Misato orders a choker to be placed around Shinji's neck that will detonate should Shinji go against WILLE's orders. Shinji is no longer allowed to pilot EVA 01. Hurt and confused by what he perceives as a sudden about-face in behavior, Shinji quickly joins Ayanami Rei when she apparently returns in EVA 00 to retrieve Shinji from WILLE. Shinji is taken to NERV's remains where Ikari Gendou instructs Shinji to pilot a new EVA unit alongside the mysterious yet seemingly friendly boy Nagisa Kaworu. Shinji quickly forms a bond with his new co-pilot, but remains troubled over and curious about the new world he finds himself in. His curiosity leads him to discover some harsh truths that will upset everything he's ever known. . .
This installment went through a notably difficult production process, which contributed to the long gap between this film and the final movie. Its story was revised multiple times to the point that the final product completely contradicts initial previews of the film. Anno Hideaki, whose psychological state greatly improved in the 2000s, found himself lapsing back into depression as a result of all the stress. It would not be until he completed Shin Godzilla in 2016 that he would be creatively and emotionally reinvigorated to take on Evangelion again. This film is notably the darkest installment of the Rebuild film series. Nevertheless, the film was critically and financially successful, grossing 66.6 million dollars worldwide, and winning the Excellence Prize for Animation at the 17th Japan Media Arts Festival and the Excellent Animation of the Year at the 36th Japan Academy Award.
