Also, this Evangelion set does not have the informative booklets from the individual "Neon Evangelion Genesis: Platinum" DVD volumes. Too bad, as those contained a lot of interesting trivia and info on the show.
The only new thing about this is the cool-looking tin that houses the individual DVDs. It's up to you to decide whether this is enough to upgrade your collection.
The show, set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo-3, involves alien-like monsters known as "Angels" that continually threaten the metropolis. Only psychologically messed up teenagers -- who include introverted Shinji Ikari, enigmatic Rei Ayanami, and mean-spirited Asuka Langley Sohryu -- stand a chance against them. They do this by piloting their Evangelions -- giant, superpowerful, robot-like fighters. In charge of the whole thing is Misato Katsuragi, a tough, no-nonsense woman who cares for the children while dealing with her own issues. Also calling the shots is Shinji's cold, unsympathetic father, Gendo Ikari, who seems to have an agenda of his own, although we're not entirely clear about what it is. And then there is the matter over whether the real threat in Tokyo-3 is in the presence of the Angels or an even more ominous organization, known as SEELE, which is occasionally seen as a group of tabloids with numbers.
As mentioned, there are many aspects of EVANGELION that are good and bad.Read more ›
also on the actual review of the item,in terms of watching it and telling what i thought of it.ive already seen the original 1995-96 version and loved it and personally didnt think it was all that confusing,but when i did deeper research on the series and what it all meant i found that it truly was very confusing,and this is due to the fact that hideaki anno(the director),was on a horrible budget for this series and if i was told correctly the original script for the series was actually between 60-120 episodes and when you try to fit all of that into 26 episodes your going to be faced with nothing but difficulty,and frankly i think he did a pretty d@m% good job at it with all the difficulties he faced in the making.but,despite all the unexplained things that are in this series it is a fantastic show and would highly reccomend it to anyone.
and just for the record,i think that since neon genesis evangelion has blown up as much as it has and hes remaking the original series right now,i think he should go back and produce the original script to give us the most detailed showing of this series yet.i would buy it.

NGE is probably one of the best animes ever to be released. This full series is small and compact and yet still has everything you can ask for. Read morePublished on February 20, 2013 by Rinji
The only other version of NGE that might be the "best" version is the holiday special, but for the price difference Platinum Perfect is a far better value IMO. Read morePublished on September 5, 2011 by D. Lepperd
