Product Description

The entire influential Japanese anime series, containing all 26 episodes. Set in the year 2015, the human race has retreated into vast underground cities after the invasion of the dreaded 'Angels', a race of alien creatures. Earth responds by forming the NERV agency, which creates the Evangelions - giant biomechanical weapons that can only be piloted by children. 14 year old Shinji Ikari (Megumi Ogata) is summoned against his will by his father to Neo-Tokyo 3 to take up the controls of one of the Evangelion weapons and lead the fight against the Angels. But Shinji begins to question why his father has really contacted him after so many years apart, and why the Angels are really attacking Earth. Episodes are: 'The Beast'; 'A Transfer'; 'Hedgehog's Dilemma'; 'Rei I'; 'Rei II'; 'A Human Work'; 'Asuka Strikes!'; 'Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!'; 'Magma Diver'; 'The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still'; 'She Said 'Don't Make Others Suffer For Your Personal Hatred''; 'Liliputian Hitcher'; 'Weaving a Story'; 'Those Women Longed for the Touch of Others' Lips and Thus Invited Their Kisses'; 'Splitting of the Breast'; 'Fourth Children'; 'Ambivalence'; 'Introjection'; 'Weaving a Story II: Oral Stage'; 'He Was Aware That He Was Still a Child'; 'Don't Be'; 'Rei III'; 'The Beginning and the End'; 'Do You Love Me?' and 'Take Care of Yourself'.

This is one of animes true classics, a series that will still be as popular decades from now. Combining action, story, music and characters in a fantastic display, featuring an incredinly deep story with roots in religious tales. It's the kind of series you can watch over and over, and always find something new, or realise another level to the story you never noticed before. Many complained at the series' ending, and so a movie was made to go along side it, entitled End of Evangelion. These are not 2 contradictory endings, just 2 different ways of viewing the same thing (without giving too much away, one is from the POV of inside the casts minds, whilst the other is whats going on outside). Buy this set, its alot cheaper than to buy the volumes individually and you really won't regret it.

We all know how maginificent Neon Genesis Evangelion series is but the picture quality of this release is flawed with overlays, hardsubs for songs/signs and really bad picture transfer but it was the first time that it came to DVD.

If anyone would like to see how bad this release is compared to the Renewal/Platinum check the comparison below: [...]

Stay away from this at all costs.

If you want a series that delivers on brilliant character development and one which delivers brilliant action look no futher. This is the first anime series I went ou and bought the entire set for and believe me it is worth it. I hear they're planning a live action movie too using WETA workshop (the guys from LOTR's) so this should be a must buy for fans of both anime and those that enjoy a compelling story.

The ultimate anime in my opinion. It tells of the young and flaky Shinji Ikari, who was abandoned by his father while he went to work on giant robots. Years later, he's called back to pilot one and fight giant monsters. Simple, yet there are some many other entities that come together in this show it becomes much more than a mecha anime. Psychoanalysis plays a major role, particularyl in Shinji and Asuka. The animation is a bit junky at the start, due to alleged budget cuts and script changes. The mood of the show changes for the better around episode 16. Things get so much darker as each character in the show begins to crack under the pressure of the seeming inevitable apocalypse. If you're thinking the rebuilds might replace this violent and nihilistic epic, don't. The rebuilds so far consist of: 1) A lot of loudspeaker announcements 2) the fruitless search for Mari's point and 3) Shinji and Kowaru searching for something to do (now with 45% more sexual tension). They may have more eye candy with the addition of CGI but the movies have lost the original impact. This box set contains the 8 discs of the original series, with English dubbing and Japanese with English subtitles. The sub may be cringe-worthy at times, but it does the best it can with the exaggerated cartoon look of the first few episodes. I do recommend this also for the original episodes 25 and 26, with the End of Evangelion this is complete. I think you need to see both to form your own full ending as one couldn't have existed without the other. No matter what the allegations on how it was made, the end result is still a must see. Plus the box itself is so nice to look at.

Lke I said, brilliant. The plot is excellent and develops really well, the characters (while Ikari Shinji doesn't change as much as I'd like) are deep and emotional.
You see love shrivel at the loss of the mother. Watch competition drive a character towards loneliness and solitude. See with your own eyes giant robots beating up giant evil monsters :)
Towards the last episodes the themes got unbelievably psychological, causing any reader to think heavily about certain aspects of life.
The episodes are of decent length (err...just in case anyone'd like to know <__<).
