Brash new Eva pilot Asuka seems to take a sadistic pleasure in deriding shy, melancholy Shinji. When the two of them are required to fight as a unit to destroy an invading Angel, she moves in with Shinji and Misato, complaining all the way. After practicing to music, they win the battle with a mecha version of a rhythmic gymnastics routine. Asuka volunteers to take her Eva into an active volcano to capture an Angel in its chrysalis stage; she's nearly killed when it escapes and has to be rescued by Shinji. After the volcano adventure, the pilots and Misato take a well-earned rest at a hot springs, where Shinji discovers the principal of thermal expansion can have embarrassing personal applications. Asuka also insults Rei, but all three pilots have to work together to defeat a huge, spidery Angel that secretes a corrosive acid in episode 11, "In the Still Darkness." A mysterious power failure that occurs during the Angel attack points to the actions of Shinji's father, Commander Ikari, who ruthlessly pursues his private agenda. All three episodes display the strong storytelling that has made Evangelion one of the most popular anime series. Not rated; suitable for ages 14 and up for robot versus robot violence, brief nudity, and minor profanity. --Charles Solomon

Product Description

It's triple jeopardy as the Angels continue to attack and the forces of NERV are finding themselves sorely pressed to find new ways to combat the alien invaders. Facing a new Angel with the ability to instantly replicate itself poses problems enough, but when an unborn Angel is found incubating inside an active volcano, the decision is made to meet the devil in it's lair! Can even an Evangelion survive mortal combat beneath a million tons of molten lava? Then NERV is left defenseless as a major power failure cripples Tokyo 3 and Shinji, Asuka and Rei must find their way through an underground labyrinth to the Eva's subterranean launch bays. But even if they get there, will they still be able to launch?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Simple Peasure of Well-Written Anime... January 25, 2001
Virtually any review you read of "Neon Genesis Evangelion" on Amazon.com or anywhere else will tell you what an incredible, unique, magnificent series it is. Well, the people who say this are all correct, but the focus is usually on the later, darker, more complex (and more bizarre) episodes - or even on the earliest episodes where so much of the series is hinted at, but so little is understood.
For me, these three episodes represent the best of the series. They are the happy midpoint after we have introduced all of the main characters and are getting to know them. They take a moment to revel in the world that Hideaki Anno (the director) and Gainax (the production company) have created before spiralling events take control out of everone's hands. In the truest Japanese sense, these are the perfect blossom between the unfolding and the inevitable wilting of the world that has been created. Needless to say, they are my favorite episodes of the series.
The disc itself is quite lovely and the video quality of the series remains incredible. While the DVD extras are, at best, minimal, the sheer fact that these are now available on DVD is reason enough to buy the series. I would eventually like to see ADV release a version with more episodes per disc and a lot more bells and whistles, but I will be happy with this for the time being.
"Evangelion" is not really a series that one ponders over getting the next volume of, but if for some reason you are wondering whether to continue after the second DVD, I most definitely recommend doing so. Watch the disc and enjoy the pure simplicity of the storytelling. This disc represents the calm before the storm and the pace and story only grow more frantic from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence in Anime December 19, 2000
(I don't own the DVD, but the VHS versions of the same episodes) DVD Volume 3 contains Eva episodes 9, 10 and 11. All three are exceptional episodes, focusing on the (slowly) developing teamwork between the three pilots. "Both of you, dance like you want to win!" contains an incredible musical sequence that will take your breath away, "Magma Diver" gives all the fanboys out there a chance to see Rei and Asuka in their swimsuits, And "The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still" has some of the best writing/editing I've ever seen, real or anime, and the action sequence is just great. I highly recommend the entire Evangelion series, and for Pete's sake, watch them in order. You'll be happy you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars probably the best anime tv series ever January 27, 2001
If you are a serious fan of anime you should make it your mission to get these series. Evangelion is a true masterpiece, filled with deep phylosophical questions counterpointed by great hillarity and spirit. There is only one reservation i have; this dvd contains only 3 episodes. This is very unexpected and totally out of "standard", set for anime on dvd. Since it would make no sense for ADV to put more episodes in the future releases. We can expect these series to take at least 8 dvd's not 7 as was originally expected, and definitely not 6. I am very dissapointed in ADV it is obvious they dont care about the fans. Although we already knew that. Of course if you are a fan and have cash it doesn't make that big of a difference. But if you are broke like me you might be better off exploring other options like, buying an import dvd box set.(all region coded of course.) Which obviously wont have an english dub but will have english subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy it now. It gets serious later. December 26, 2000
Out of all the DVDs of Evangelion, this by far is the most hilarious one. After Auska's arrival, things get weird. First, Shinji and Auska have to doulbe team an angel which means they have to live together. The next epiosde is even more entising as Auska shows off her new bathing suit to Shinji. And things get a little perverted at the spa. However, if your looking for a less silly epiosde, episode 11 on the disc is a little better. Tokyo goes completely out of power and NERV is hot and in the dark. The only silly moment I could find in this episode was when Auska kicked Shinji for looking up her skirt. This volume is more of a charcter devolpment rather than intrique. But you might as well relish it. After this point, there is bearly any silliness at all. There is the most popular scene on this disc though where Shinji and Auska fight to classical music. That was the best part on the whole disc. I do not know what Bios are going to be on the disc, but I can assume that there will be bios on Gendo and Kaji. I hope ADV continues in this tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An anime legend November 28, 2012
By KevinB
Shinji is 14. After his mother's death and long separation from his father he is summonded to Tokyo 3. His father tells him he must pilot a giant humanoid robot to protect the world from the invading angels. The angels and the Evangelion that Shinji pilots both have a secret. They were both alternate possibilities of humanity in the when the world began. There are many dark secrets and conspiracies afoot behind the scenes. Shinji has some major psychological issues and they are compounded when he meets his fellow pilots Rei and Asuka. Evangelion is the story of Shinji, and his fight to save the world and find happiness.

This is a very deep anime. You could watch it over and over, but still find a different meaning every time. The story is very heavy. The emotions of each characters are explored in depth. It's an older series, but the animation, voice acting, and music are all top notch. It is a near perfect series. My only beef with it is the final episode. The final episode is pretty much a psych evaluation of the main characters. When I first saw this series, I hated it b/c of the ending. Since then they have released "Death and Rebirth", and "The End of Evangelion". They wrap everything up very nicely. Evangelion is incredible and you should check it out. I hope you enjoy it.
