Before I continue with the extra contents let me first do a quick re-run for readers who are not yet familiar with this release: The Platinum series is a re-release of the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime serie. It features enhanced picture quality (so that it will give out a very clear and sharp picture on (modern) installations) and its sound dubs have also been improved. You'll quickly discover (in comparison with the original release) that some of the enhancements really add up to the experience. Like, for example, the sound which fades to the right when a talking person walks out of the screen to the right side. The sound dubs (both English and Japanese) should be in 5.1 surround but I can't verify that since I still use stereo. Perhaps its good to know that even on stereo the new dubs sound very nice in the overall.Read more ›
But it is probably the characters supporting the pilots who recieve the best expansion here: Misato's background is particularly revealing, both about herself as well as what motovates her ( wrongly, it turns out ) to seek vengence on the Angels; Ritsuko becomes important to the story for the first time as the genius technician behind the MAGI super-computers so necessary to NERV operations; and we see a bit more of the past between Misato and Kaji while the two are unavoidably stuck on an elevator during a major power failure. The three will be a trio to watch in the future, as their entwined story continues to unfold.
The sound and audio remastering continues to make the Platinum Collection the definitive edition of this truly landmark anime series. Highly recommended to any real anime student/fan/otaku!
