The Manga UK twitter feed was a buzz this morning as the company showed off its cover artwork for their upcoming May 30th, 2011 release of the Evangelion 2.22 DVD and Blu-ray release. Manga's release mirrors the general look and feel of the FUNimation release of the first feature so it's little surprise here overall, though it's definitely a dark and ominous cover and a stark contrast to many of the import covers which feature a simple orange piece with the logo in black through the middle.

Plot summary: In the earliest battles against the monstrous Angels, young Eva pilots Shinji and Rei were forced to carry humanity's hopes on their shoulders. Now, with the deadly onslaught of the Angels escalating and the apocalyptic Third Impact looming, Shinji and Rei find their burden shared by two new Eva pilots, the fiery Asuka and the mysterious Mari. Maneuvering their enormous Eva machines into combat, the four young souls fight desperately to save mankind from the heavens - but will they be able to save themselves?
