After destroying the spidery Ninth Angel, Shinji is shocked to receive a word of praise from his emotionally remote father. An extended flashback reveals how Misato's ineffectual father rescued her from the destruction caused by the Second Impact; Ritsuko confides to Misato that she never got along with her mother, the creator of the all-powerful trio of computers known as the Magi. Ten years after the release of Evangelion in America, the engineers at AD Vision remastered the audio tracks in 5.1 surround sound for the "Platinum" edition. Although some spectacular explosions occur in the battles with the Ninth and Tenth Angels, the remix is often most effective in quiet moments. When Misato steps out into the rain, the sound of the falling water envelopes the room. Shinji, Rei and Asuka are caught away from the base during a power outage and have to travel through ventilation ducts to NERV headquarters: the listener can follow their progress through metal tubes. As the extras, which include a discussion of the changes in sound technology, are the only new footage, the "Platinum" discs are really for viewers who've installed a 5.1 system, but who don't already have Anno's watershed series. (Rated 15 and older: violence, minor profanity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

3.0 out of 5 stars Very informative but a bit dull... November 29, 2004
Verified Purchase
This is the third DVD in the Platinum Series and it offers all the things we've grown to be used to from the previous 2 releases. One thing which is immediatly noticable is that this DVD doesn't contain 5 but 4 episodes (11 to 14). Whats also different is that they started using the episode names which are displayed in the 2nd half of the episodes. The "original" name is still displayed first in the series and used in the ending trailers, but I guess they're using the official names on the DVD box and in the menu now. The episodes on this DVD are: "The day Tokyo-3 stood still" (former name / also known as: "In the still darkness"), "She said: Don't make others suffer for your personal hatred" (aka "The value of a miracle is..."), "Lilliputian Hitcher" (aka "Angel invasion") and "Weaving a story" (aka "Seele, throne of souls"). So don't let the names fool you if they sound unfamiliar ;-)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Turning Point February 9, 2009
This third DVD in the Platinum Collection marks the halfway point in the original 26-episode series; as well as being the point from which it inexorably veers away from its apparent inception as "just another" Giant Robot Show with an inevetable monster-of-the-week format. The recap episode 14, Weaving a Story, both brings to an end the first half of the series, while effectively foreshadowing what will come in the second half. The trio of Eva pilots each experience additional character development in these four episodes: Askua, though still brash and demanding attention, tones down a little and learns better to perform as a member of a team; Rei emerges a bit from her shell, showing good sense and a touch of decisiveness while nonetheless questioning her real purpose; and Shinji comes as close as he ever will to finding the approval which is really what drives him on.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cliffhanger alert! March 2, 2008
You know you love it. Third in the series; just as good as the rest. But may i suggest you purchase this one with number four. The last episode on number three ends in a cliff hanger; quite annoying if you don't have the next episode sitting there to watch right away. Otherwise everything you have come to expect from the series. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced June 16, 2014
If I can get this for only 5 dollars at a retailer, than there's no way I would spend over $40 on just 4 episodes (especially if one of them is just a recap episode).
