To mark the release of the limited-edition Ace2 EVA smartphone, OPPO recently released a CG short and tribute visual, titled Evangelion: It Can (Not) Be True.

Directed by Somei Sun, the visual reimagines iconic scenes from the beloved anime series and uses 3-dimensional flair to create grand scenes. The director incorporated scenes captured during the pandemic outbreak to relate to the effect of the ATfield in Evangelion, noting that in this time we need to connect with one another to give the world strength.

According to Somei, “Evangelion is an anime that was crazy and obsessed in my childhood. This year its final theater version will be released soon. I also hope to use my way to commemorate this animation throughout my growing period. Every Eva movie has a subtitle. I also chose a name for my work [√], pronounced: ‘true’. The meaning is realistic. Because the core purpose of this creation is to try to make the EVA world real. On the other hand, you can also see some real-world images added to the dream section of the film.”
