FINALLY!!! To clarify once and for all:

Platinum Collection 7 contains four episodes--

#24- The Original Version


#25- The Original Version

#26- The Original Version

There is NO director's cut for episodes 25 and 26. If you already purchased the Platinum Collection Boxed Set, then you already have ALL of the episodes that are on this seventh disk. For some reason they organized the single disks differently than the Boxed Set, and therefore there are seven seperate single disks and only six disks in the Boxed Set.

DON'T buy this disk if you are looking for extra episodes that they didn't squeeze into the Boxed Set. The Boxed Set contains all the original episodes of the series, and it also contains the director's cut for episodes 21, 22, 23, and 24. There's nothing else available anywhere.

The original end of the series (episodes 25 and 26) was unsatisfactory to many fans, and so the director reworked the ending in the form of TWO movies. They are NOT included in the boxed set. You can buy them seperately, or they also come in a two-pack box. The first movie is called "Death and Rebirth," and the second movie is "The End of Evangelion." They are both excellent films, and serve as an entertaining and thought-provoking alternative to the original ending of the series.

Needless to say, this series is the best that anime has to offer. All the incredible action and animation is perfectly complimented by a mix of intricate characters and philosophies. Neon Genesis Evangelion is as much about tackling the nature of the soul as it is about giant alien creatures getting killed by giant robot things. It's wonderful.

I made the mistake of thinking I was gyped out of some of the episodes when I bought the Platinum Collection boxed set (which has "Collection" disks 1-6). So I bought Platinum Collection 7 thinking I would now have the director's cuts of some more episodes, but it turns out the boxed set just consolidates Collection disks 1-7 into 6 disks. let me return it, but I had to pay for shipping. Oh well, lesson learned. I thought you all might learn from my mistake.

I dont normally write Reviews but after reading some of the others i just had to. First off ignore pretty much all the other reviews, they seem to be owners of the older DVDs. How do i know this ? Well they seem to think episodes 21 - 23 are on this disc, Wrong! Its the last of the Platinum Volumes and contains Episodes 24 - 26 the Last two of the series. I would also like to point out that Volume 6 which i just got today has the Directors Cut Episodes of 21 - 23 quite cool. So Evangelion Platinum is all you'll need series wise. But Death and Rebirth and End of Evangelion should also be bought. Not really a Review of the Anime but the fact i gave it 5 stars speaks for itself. ^_^

This is a great volume. Eva in general is a great series but this is fantastic. In this volume we get to see the death of two major characters as well as see Asuka become so devistated my an angel attack that she begins to have difficulty in everything she does.
The show gives us an indepth look at what an Evangelion is and how it is formed. There are a multitude of flashbacks from a great number of the of the characters lives. The viewers find out what happened to Shinji's mother, Ritsuko's mother, and what Rei really is. There are many flashbacks showing scenes of joy, love, friendship, mistrust and hatred. Meanwhile the present scenes deal with sacrafice and mourning. There are some great scenes in this volume.
Volume seven starts to explain every thing that has led up to this moment. There two really phenominal angel attacks in this volume. I would consider these three episodes to be some of the best episodes in Neon Genesis: Evangelion because of the plot and the character development. It will leave you feeling very sorry for each of the characters in the saga of Evangelion.

Evangelion has long been hailed for being the most provocative, and groundbreaking anime series in history. It will forever be held as a mark for other series to try and hurdle in regards to art quality, depth, and ability to actually draw you in and make you feel like you're experiencing everything along with the characters.
That being said, this final installment is excellent. This time it delves deep into the inner psyche of the characters, while trying to unravel many of the mysteries dropped throughout the prior episodes. It also reflects the thoughts of the creator of the series and his outlook on the future of the world.
There have been complaints that this being the final episode, not all of the questions were answered and the ending was too surreal.
I agree that there are still questions that need answering, but I liked the ending.
Either way two movies "Death and Rebirth" and "End of Evangelion" will wrap up any loose ends. And will give a more action based ending. They're due out in August 2002 tentatively.
In the mean time buy this! It's well worth it. Evangelion forever!
