The last couple Eva Platinum DVDs have been falsely labeled. In the review it says that Episodes 18-20 are on this disc, while in reality they are on disc 5. The episodes on this disc are 21, 22, and 23.

Don't get me wrong, the reviews are great. They're just for the wrong disc. Maybe Amazon will catch the error and fix it. Maybe.

This is the best part of the series, however, ADV didn't do justice on the DVD either. The picture is somewhat hazy, and the English dubbing isn't up to par. The voices of the characters are kind of bland. I've seen the entire TV series on KTEH (a PBS station in San Jose). I like the Japanese version a lot better, just turn on the English subtitle and watch the entire thing. In the Japanese version when Shinji screams in terror, it makes your skin crawl.

This is one of the best volumes. I love Rei's charcter and I love how the truth about her is revealed. These episodes have everything and Evangelion fan could ask for. Many questions are awnsered, the dummy system,rei, Ristsuko's secret and the last angel. This is also the last real volume where you can determine what is going on!

Well, this is my favourite DVD on eva, i have been watching eva for 3-4 years and loved the series. The first time i seen the series was on SBS and it was my 2nd favourite episode, Ambivalence (Eva Unit-03 is an angel) And i bought all eva DVDs when they came out. Episode 19 is the ultimate ep. This is the DVD. Episode 18 is excellent in action and shinjis drama, episode 19, i never got to see this episode because my retiler didn't have episode 19 and 20, but when i watched them, i always wandered what was missing in eva, but now i get it finally, never skip a SINGLE episode, watch ALL of em' 1 by one, second by second. If anyone here likes anime, sci-fi, comedy, action and violence, eva is for you, excellent series, if anyone is a bigger fan than me, i don't believe em. (...)
Also watch out for mid next year, for the new series of eva REVELATION (i am not kidding !!!) and End Of Eva 0mn DVD and Death and Rebirth on DVD should be out April !!! KEEP WATCHING!!

In Vol.6 the EVA mystery is kind of answered,as much as anything is on the series,Shinji is proven to be the best pilot and the ony one to really pilot an EVA.Technically the animation is as usual flawless. The climax of the story is the true nature of the EVA-pilot bond which you have to see to believe.
Trully a fine anime!

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.

Quite simply, this is the place the plot was building to. The tension, the personalities, the people all reach their head here.
Shinji finally starts making decisions of his own- much to the chagrin of everyone around him.. and Kaji, well, Kaji proves to be the most inciteful and insightful character of the bunch. Thank you, Kaji, for your sermon amongst the watermelons, its simply the best scene in modern anime.
The DVD is fairly light on the features and functionality, but that has been a gripe from day one about the Eva DVDs. Thankfully, their story is carried well enough that it doesn't matter.. But still, this is a popular series and really deserving of better presentation. Sadly, the series ends in many ways after this DVD. They mix the psychological and the physical so well for this DVD that everything afterwords seems like an Epilogue. The choices were made here, fates decided on the spur of the moment. In short, this is a must-have dvd in the series. Rent the rest, own number 6.

Since I have been reviewing this series one DVD at a time, it has finally occurred to me that readers are tired of being told things like 'even better,' or 'adds a whole new level.' There isn't much question but that is exactly the effect that Gainax and director Hideaki Anno intend. We have reached the stage where the mysteries will be peeled away in layers like an onion, and this isn't intended to be a 'comfortable' process.
The twin focus of these episodes is the nature of the EVA, and the still developing character of Shinji. In a sense, the series comes into its own now, shedding any remnant of the children's mecha appearance that it initially wore as a disguise. We are being drawn into a startling investigation into what is human, and what is not.
In 'The Judgement of Life' Toji Suzuhara, the fourth child, is set to testing EVA 03. But the terrible happens, and the 13th Angel (Bardiel) interferes, seizing control of the EVA. When Gendo Ikari orders Shinji to destroy the EVA the boy refuses to kill his friend. Gendo orders EVA 01 into auto pilot mode and Shinji mush watch in horror while his father forces the EVA to become a raging killer.
'A Man's Fight,' find's Shinji repelled by everything his father stands for and refuses to pilot an EVA again. He is on his way home when a new Angel (Zeruel) appears and makes short work of Rei and Asuka. Shinji forces his way back to NERV headquarters and demands to pilot EVA 01. When the Angel nearly destroys EVA 01, Shinji achieves total integration with the EVA as it develops a life of its own... as a cannibalistic killer!
'Form of the Mind, Form of the Man' finds Misato and the NERV staff desperately trying to separate Shinji self back out from the creature that EVA 01 has become.

Region 2?
I bought this even though it said region 2 because every other one in the series by the same company was region 1. Behold, when I got it and tried it, region 1. Plays good in the U.S. on U.S. DVD players.
