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

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.

i was very satisfied,due to how well it was packaged and also being that i asked for more pacific details on the condition of the item and i couldnt agree more with the description that the seller provided me with.

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.

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

For the best image and sound quality until the north american blu ray of neon genesis evangelion gets a release this is the ultimate box set for any collection. I really love the weight that this tin has. It's a bit bigger than the size of a dvd and looks beautiful next to the rest of my box-sets. The engraving of the title and the eyes of shinji, rei, and asuka is a nice touch. The DVDs are simple slim case but have great artwork for each cover. Extras are lacking but all you need to know about evangelion is online in forums and just about everybody who's watched evangelion has a sort of fasination about its origin so it's fun to see small pieces of "the mythology of evangelion" the only extra unique to this set. If you ever see this come up on amazon or any other retailer be sure to pick this one up, you will not be disappointed.
