5.0 out of 5 stars Rocks My World!, 27 May 2010
This review is from: Neon Genesis Evangelion - Ultimate Tin Box Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I like anime a lot and I have a pretty decent array on DVD at home, but this is the jewel of my collection!

First of all Evangelion is a deeply thought-provoking and emotional series, regardless of genre, and has jaw-dropping suspense-filled action sequences - I found it truly gripping stuff! I first watched it over the space of 2 days, starting on the day that I got it, and spent an hour staring into space after I had finished watching the last episode, just trying to untie the knots it had left in my mind!

This particular edition is awesome - I really like the tin and all the artwork in the package and really take pride in my ownership of it. Also, the english dub is very satisfactory and didn't make me cringe as they sometimes can.

The only problem I had with evangelion is that I fealt duty bound to pimp it out to all my mates and get them to watch it, which in some cases resulted in my disappointment. Some of them found it difficult to get on with and (in my opinion) dumped it too soon. The issue for them was the inherent "Japanesiness" of it! As stated above I'm an anime fan, so I am used to the OTT emotional expressions of anger, alarm, arousal, etc and take it merely as a part of the narrative. However, this is not always understood by infreuent anime watchers and did undoubtedly put some of my friends off the series. Please don't let this happen to you - it really is worth the perseverence, even if this is not normally your cup o' tea.

I give it 5 stars because I love it and I want everyone to watch it and love it too!
