Product Description


The new 5.1 surround sound remix for Hideaki Anno's watershed Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) works most effectively in the battles with the Angels, and these episodes offer two epic combat sequences. In episode 6, Shinji tackles Ramiel, the Fifth Angel, using a special rifle that requires all the electrical power in Japan. The eerily quiet scenes of the darkening archipelago contrast sharply with the furious energy beam attacks that follow. The arrival of arrogant, temperamental Third Child Asuka Sohryu makes life even more miserable for Shinji. In episode 9, he and Asuka use a perfectly coordinated combination of gymnastic and dance movements to defeat Israfel, the Seventh Angel. As the remixed episodes contain no new footage, they're really for viewers who've installed a 5.1 system, but who don't already have this landmark series. (Rated 15 and older: violence, minor profanity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

This is the second DVD in the Neon Genesis Platinum collection, a re-make of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion Anime series with enhanced picture and audio quality. The animation has been restored and improved to "modern" standards so that this DVD will produce a very crisp and clear picture. Next to that they have also enhanced the sound tracks; the original Japanese audio is available in 5.1 surround and the English audio tracks have been reworked as well. I hope that it will be re-assuring to know that if you're already used to the English dubs of the original serie that you'll feel right at home listening to this one.

Next to that this DVD also features new contents, even though some scenes may be very hard to spot if you have no material as comparison. You may very well consider the Platinum series to be the full batch of the Director Cut's.

There are 5 Evangelion episodes on the disk (6 through 10: Rei II (also known as 'Showdown in Tokio 3'), A human work, Asuka Strikes!, Both of you: Dance like you want to win!, Magma diver) as well as some extra 'fan service' ;-)

So on to the special treats... As the name already points out the Platinum series isn't just a mere re-run. Next to the improvements mentioned above this DVD is shipped in a silver cover ("slip over") which features a line drawing of Rei in her plugsuit on the front and a description of whats on the DVD on the back. The DVD box itself lists about the same plus on the back the episode names written out in Kanjii and the original air dates.

Then there's a 12 page booklet inside which describes the episodes, features some very nice pictures from the series and gives you some insight info on the encountered Angels as well.

This is #2 in the reissues of Evangelion. There's no additional content if you already bought the original DVD's. The film transfers and Dolby 5.1 Audio are excellent as usual. The commentaries were the best part of the DVD. I love listening to the staff and cast talk about the feelings and opinions of what they did. For the price the episodes per disk on the Platinum Collection are great. Sadly there aren't any extra trinkets like the NERV parking sticker in the Neon Genesis Evangelion - Platinum Collection 1. Buy it if you've never owned or seen Evangelion. This is an anime that every fan should watch.

It has been almost 7 years since I've seen the series which was telivised back in the day. Though back then in my early teen years I didn't quite understand the meaning and the messages behind this great story, I was captivated by the artistic movement of this series. This collection shows the series just like it was telivised, but it has an alternartive las four episodes which shows deleted secenes and extra things. Though I feel kinda teased about the fact that they only show the last four episodes and not the whole series (meaning deleted scenes and stuff). I'm not giving it a thumbs down...I defenetly recommend it. This is great stuff.

when I watched the first eva dvd I was a little dissapointed.....I thought the show was vastly overrated,but it held my interest enogh to get me to buy #2 and im glad I did...the show is getting better and better (I heard it REALLY picks up later in the series)

my favorite moment of this dvd is in the last episode "magma diver" it involves a hot spring a bottle of shampoo and thermal expansion....thats all im gonna say

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By kaitie on March 13, 2006
okay first off,it's me again,Kaitie.But anyway this dvd has episodes:

6-rei II

7-a human work

8-asuka strikes

9-both of you dance like you wanna win!

10-magma driver

I loved this dvd,it is one of my favorites of the 7.I really liked this one becuase it introduces asuka!!She is my favorite character!Also it has the really funny episode 9,that is also one of my favorite episodes!Episode 9 is soo funny and awsome and it brings out asuka and shenjis personality,i love it!

But if you want to buy this dvd i reccomand that you buy the platinum collection box set with all volumes...only becuase it looks way better and less expensive...but most of all it is just better and easier plus prettier with the pretty box set sitting with your dvds.Asuka and Rei look nice on your shelf or were ever.It is also better for a die hard fan or just a good fan of neon genesis!

Well i hope this review helped you!Bye!!
