Product Description

The first of two theatrically released follow-ups to the epic animated television series. This instalment is comprised of two parts, the first of which, 'Death', recounts the events of the TV series in a summary which features new and deleted footage. The second part, 'Rebirth', takes the story further, with SEELE commandos launching a massive assault intended to bring the Evangelion project under their own control.

From the Back Cover

At the dawn of the new millennium, mankind has awakened a threat unlike any faced before - the Angels. Conventional weapons are useless against them. They can only be stopped by means of the Evangelions - bio-engineered vessels born from the Angels' own technology. But this forbidden knowledge is also the key to bringing about a startling new genesis for the human race. Placed in the hands of three young pilots, the final fate of humanity resting upon their shoulders, the Evas are the world's last hope

Welcome to the Apocalypse
From the animators at Production IG (Ghosts In The Shell, Blood: The Last Vampire) and Studio GAINAX (The Wings Of The Honneamise) comes the first half of the sensational TWO-PART conclusion to the Neon Genesis Evangelion saga. Featuring groundbreaking animated action sequences and mind-blowing dramatic revelations, Death & Rebirth is truly a composition of epic proportions!

Ever since I started watching anime (which has not been all that long), I have been curious about some of the big series. Like the nearly infinite number of Gundam's, the Lodoss series, and, of course, Evangelion. The latter has such universal popularity that I finally decided to try it. Put off by the price of the episodes I was attracted to this DVD, because of its two features, 'Death' was a recap of the series, and 'Rebirth' would provide some insight into its ending and meaning.
As usual, I was being optimistic. My first viewing of 'Death' left me feeling that I had just experienced one of those shorts that were titled '26,000 Years of Art in 60 Seconds.' It does indeed recap the high points of the series, but as a crazed rollercoaster ride - with flashbacks. Don't get me wrong, I liked it. However, I felt that I had watched something incredibly momentous yet utterly inexplicable. Certainly, Evangelion is quite a bit more than the sci-fi, kid-in-a-robot series that I thought it was. In fact, it deals with a surprising breadth of issues. From emotional trauma to the future evolution of the human race.
What I did not realize until I read some reviews is that 'Rebirth' is actually the starting episode of 'The End of Evangelion.' As such, I was unprepared for an apocalyptic vision of the attack on NERV headquarters, complete with the new EVA circling above like vultures. The action and emotional pitch are intense, really a step beyond most of the films I had seen before. Lacking any guideposts though, I found it difficult to piece together the story behind the action. And, as in the companion piece, creator Hideaki Anno shows no mercy to the viewer.
However, the DVD includes an entire encyclopedia of Evangelion knowledge called the 'Mokuji Interactive Feature.

Finally "death and rebirth" has been released in the UK. Many fans of the evangelion series will already own this and "end of evangelion" dvd 2 in 1 package released abroad.
However, if you're one of the people who have watched all 13 videos of eva and are expecting the alternate ending that everyone dreamed of, then you are going to be disappointed. Death and Rebirth is merely a recap on the videos of eva but with some key extra scenes put in. This is basically the first half of the evangelion movie (which was only made because fans were disappointed with the tv series ending(video 13).The full movie is in two parts, "evangelion death and rebirth"(recap on the tv series) and "end of evangelion."(the alternate ending anime which should have been released in summer 1998! but never was!)
When i say a recap on the series that is being kind, all death and rebirth shows is each one of the angels being destroyed with some narrative text and some extra footage. If you are a hardcore eva fan then it is worth having, but if you liked eva and just want to see the alternate ending, then wait for End of evangelion which should be released soon.
1 thing though, if you have never watched any of the eva videos do not buy this, it will literally make your brain hurt trying to comprehend what is happening. Eva is one of the most complex and deeply involving animes of all time, to understand eva, it must be watched in full, with a professor of philosophy standing beside you ready to answer any questions you have about the meaning of life. My advice would be to wait till end of evangelion is realeased, trust me, it is worth waiting for!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
New comers to this series should be advised that this collection of films follows on from the 24th episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion, so to best understand the vast amount of character dynamics and interpersonal relationships - which is essentially the essence of the series - then I'd advise buying the series Ultimate Collection first in order to understand and be completely immersed in the world of Evangelion.

The true meaning of Evangelion is a long and in depth study of the human psyche and the inability to really connect with people, told via an initially complex and weaving narrative. Although the show is recognisable as one of piloted mechas (the Evangelions) fighting against invading Angels of prophesied destruction, these are just a means to an end in conveying the series true motives.

Death and Rebirth is the first of the two films within the set, and is split into two parts. Death, the first mini film, serves as an hour-long recap of the important plot points from the series up to the final two episodes (I'll cover this later) broken down into different chapters reflecting the roles each of the main protagonists played. Although essentially just a recap, Death is thoroughly enjoyable in its own right and even holds up to repeated viewings no matter how many times you've seen the series. Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of Death is that is puts all the events in chronological order, as the time-hoping in the series can be a tad overwhelming on initial viewing. It also condenses the important facts, which were buried like gold nuggets in the series first viewing, to recap the relevant details needed for the second part of the film; Rebirth.

Rebirth is actually the first half of the second Evangelion movie: End of Evangelion.
