Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of the major anime works of the last decade, the 1995-96 television series Neon Genesis Evangelion was a blast of fresh air in a medium that is sometimes marked by cookie-cutter sameness. Director Hideaki Anno Gunbuster used the medium as no one had before: as a means for personal expression and for exorcising private demons his troubled relationship with his father casts a shadow over the story. The gamble paid off: Eva is both a must-see pop hit and a rare example of creativity uncompromised by the usual market forces. In the far future, after an unspecified disaster known as the Second Impact, Earth is attacked by hostile beings called "Angels." To combat these immense enigmatic foes, a scientist named Gendo unleashes psychically powered, semiorganic battle robots known as "Evas." After a string of costly failures involving the Evas and their child pilots, Gendo reunites with his introverted, estranged teenage son, Shinji, only to use him as a tool in a struggle with truly apocalyptic implications. Eva takes a few cues from 1970s Japanese pop classics like Ultraman and robot shows like Mazinger Z, and then blasts off for the twilight zone. Conspiracy, mystery, and religious imagery figure heavily. But more than the doom and gloom, it is the complex and endlessly fascinating characters who make Eva sparkle and come to life -- the beautiful but haunted waif Rei and the spunky redhead Asuka are fine foils. With its controversial final episode, which shocked the original viewing audience, the only possible comparison for the series may ultimately be to David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Still a unique and wild ride by any standard, Neon Genesis Evangelion's 26-episode run -- collected here on eight bilingual DVDs -- is anime's equivalent of a primal scream. Volk Lindsay

    amazing

    Neon Genesis Evangelion is amazing. I watched the episodes in japanese with english subtitles, which is much better then english translated, I love how (i think the 5th angel) is a boy, and shinji has to pop his head, perverted, but awsome.

    The Begining and End to all anime period.

    This anime embodies what anime is really like. Hollywood could never even begin to aproach the greatness of this anime. A true 'work of art' for our time.

    The Most Beautifully Done Anime EVER!

    I swear, after watchin' all the episodes (including the two movies), it gets a person thinking. The story, characters, everything is masterfully done. I truly recommend the Evangelion set for any anime fan.

    This is amazing

    This anime asks the thoughest questions ever questioned by mankind. Why are we here? Why am I doing this? What is truth? Who am I? Who are you? All these questions don't have an answer, but Eva shows you what some of the possiblities of answers that can fit into those spicific questions. They don't answer the question for you, they give you the facts, and what each chracter's oulook on these question, and leave you to try and answer the question yourself. It honestly changed my outlook on life, but you don't really need to be a deep thinker to enjoy this anime, if your into a deep plot, realistic characters, amazing music, and mind-bogging graphics. I would recommend this master-pice to anyone, and everyone!

    Not for the young or pure of heart.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion was an amazing series to begin with. Starting out with a little boy, who was constantly trying to keep from running away, End of Evangelion helps continue this little boy's journey.. as the viewer relates with this boy's fears, trials, and the numerous screams that he lets out throughout the video. You look on as this boy gets crucified, and looks on at the world, for one last i love you. This story is one that change the way you look at everything. One that will leave you staring at the screen, thinking about five million things at once. You owe it to yourself to see this.

    IN cred IBLE

    Neon Genesis/Evangalion is the BEST anime ever. There is no doubt about that. What sets this spectacular set aside from the rest of the anime world is the extreme character development and glorious animation. There are plot twists that will leave the viewer in a kind of frenzy, wondering what is going to happen next. Of all anime, this is the pinnacle. It is truly the thinking person's cartoon. More than anything else, though, the impact that Neon Genesis has on the viewer is one of hope and frustration, light and dark, good and evil, and the gray areas in between. The DVD set is awesome in every way, nothing wrong with it at all. If you have never seen Evangalion before, do yourself a favor and get it. You will not regret it ever. I know it seems pricy, but it is worth every penny.

    One of the best Animé out there.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the best Animé out there. It has amazing and very real characters. The mecha designs are amazing. There is nothing wrong with this Animé. Neon Genesis Evangelion is a must have. It has a very convoluted plot at times and will make you think after watching it. I highly recommend buying this title. It will also air 2 episodes on Toonami later on in February 2003, so if you are unsure watch those episodes, I think it is the week of February 24th.

    Significant Revelation

    A true modern masterpiece

    Director Anno has created his second most remembered masterpiece, Gunbuster being the first. There is a depth to the characters and the story not found in other Anime, which is typical of Anno's works. Without doubt, one of the best and a great investment!

    This just may change everything about your life!!!!!!

    This saga swells deep in your mind the further U proceed through it. The beautiful animation coupled with a story that will leave u scared and confused. A deep and penetrating look into the fragility of our own minds and culture. This is not just a anime series, its everything!

    Evangelion Rocks!

    Evangelion, one of the, if not the best anime of all time is put together in a perfect collection. The animation is flawless, as is the plot. When ''angels'' try to take over the earth, Shinji, Asuka, Rei, and Toji take to their Evangelions to save the planet(and the human race). I have seen the first eight episodes, and ''Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death and Rebirth'' and my own perfect collection is well on the way. A note to parents, however, is not to show this to small children, as is contains violence, brief nudity, and harsh language. To all otaku, (if you are one, you'll know what that means, if you aren't, too bad!)enjoy this, and purchase ''Death and Rebirth'' and ''The End of Evangelion'', they are essential parts of the plot. P.S. The theme song is the best. Ever. I'm listening to it right now!

    Way too disturbing for the weak and squimish.

    I have seen the entire episodes 1-26 (including the movie End of Evangelion), and I must say, this is one of the most compelling, ground-breaking, and utterly complexed animes ever written. The first few episodes may just look like your typical mecha anime, but the storyline becomes darker and brooding when some of the secrets of the EVAs, NERV and the SEELE are revealed. This a must for anyone who wants to stay away from a bland mecha storyline. However, I do have a major complain with the video transfer. ADV didn't do justice on it. The images are a little blurry, but tolerable, and the English voicework isn't my cup of tea. I prefer watching it on Japanese audio and turn on the subtitle.

    a truly deep series...

    I borrowed it from a friend and have seen all of it through twice. But still I must own them so i can watch them more. It touched me deeply and i was truly able to relate to the characters. It is truly a splendid work of art.

    Phenomenal...

    I've been an avid anime fan for almost as long as I can remember. I have seen many different ones, but they all pale when compared to Neon Genesis Evangelion. It's not even fair to try to compare it to another anime--it really stands that far above them. The animation is superb for a TV series, the characters are so lifelike you'll think you're watching yourself, and the drama and religious undertone give a feeling of depth and wonder that you have not and probably never will experience again. The last two episodes are very controversial, but I actually liked them very much. Ep. 26 was actually voted the best-loved anime episode in Japan not long ago. You must compare them to the movies--Death & Rebirth and End of Evangelion--to piece together the ending as it was meant to be understood. If you haven't seen this anime, don't insult it by renting it first. BUY THE PERFECT COLLECTION NOW.

    Evangelion is a Must Have!

    Hideaki Anno is an artist all his own. His sorrow and pain feed life into Evangelion and gave birth to one of the most thought provoking, disturbing, original, and beautiful animated series of all time. You may not understand everything, but u feel the force driving the series. Born from depression and despair, Neon Genesis Evangelion Perfect Collection is the premiere series that all should possess.
