Editorial Reviews

"Neon Genesis Evangelion was anime's perfect storm. It's a phenomenon like Star Wars, Harry Potter, or the Matrix. Plenty of works are going to try to reproduce it, but ultimately it will stand apart." - Aint It Cool News

Much of it is up for interpretation and guessing.

THE GOOD--- The Characters in the sub are WAY better than their dub counterparts.

The only good thing about this release is that the tin LOOKS pretty cool.

This release represents yet another version of Evangelion on DVD. Actually,that's not quite accurate. The Neon Genesis Evangelion Platinum:Perfect Collection will consist of the previously available Platinum releases of Eva[not the thinpack collection versions that were stripped of extras, but the single release versions, which had a good number of extra features].
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 Neon Genesis Evangelion Platinum Perfect Collection is the best DVD set to get if you don't already own an Evangelion DVD set. This set has the UPDATED visual and audio transfers from the previous Platinum release. But it also has the extra features that were not found in that Platinum release (which was pretty much a barebones release). So if you don't already own a set, this Platinum Perfect collection is the best one to get.

Gainax's staggeringly ambitious, 26-episode series NEON GENESIS EVANGELION is declared as one of the most compelling Anime productions of all time. It also happens to be one of most controversial. On one side of the coin are a bunch of loyal, unbending followers that idolize the show. On the other are a group of naysayers who say otherwise. As far as my views of EVANGELION are concerned, I fall somewhere in the middle. In many ways, the show is indeed brilliant and thought provoking--something rarely seen in any animated production, American or Japanese. At the same time, however, there are elements of EVANGELION that rub me the wrong way.

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.

Great product, all episodes but not the movies. If you get this, buy The end of evangelion, not death and rebirth.

First off, I love this collection. The episodes have never looked better thanks to the remastering process and the commentaries included are real gems. The show itself looks fantastic, however, my only grip is the packaging. The packaging is a little hard to deal with. If I want to watch disk 7, I need to go through all of the other disks first to get to it. However, this is mostly a minor gripe.

The price: Yes, the price is quite a bit high, however, I was lucky and someone was selling it for 40 dollars. If you can find a steal like that, I recommend this set very highly.

neon genesis evangelion is a great show. even if you haven't seen it, it is a really good purchase. this edition doesn't come with any of the movies, but it does come with some pretty cool commentary episodes. i'd say it's a good value, especially since the other editions cost from 70-120 buckos

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. One of the deepest most complicated series ever.

does this set come with the eva movies???
It may be way too late to answer your question, but in case someone comes by and wants the answer.

ADV had the rights to the series, while Manga Entertainment has/had the rights to the 2 movies. So odds are really low to get a US release with both.

This release is also old enough not to have... Read More

Difference between Platinum Perfect and Platinum?
Supposedly the older platinum(box set) was stripped of the extras that came with the individual platinum dvds, this new one[platinum perfect collection] has included those dvd extras and a TIN box.

Subtitle in Spanish????
no,these discs(which are just really newly released versions of the "Evangelion Platinum" DVDs) just have Japanese and English audio, with English subtitles.
