4.0 out of 5 stars This is a "best buy"... sort off, September 15, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neon Genesis Evangelion - Resurrection (Director's Cut, Episodes 21-23) (DVD)
...but not because this DVD is the best around. Its the best at the moment because you get more for your money with this one than with the original 0-6 release. It holds both the original and the director cut episodes and features some extra's with regards to the (possible) upcoming Evangelion live movie as well as some audio commentary (even though I find those things awfull myself; its just people chatting while the cartoon is running, most of the times they don't even pay attention at all to what is happening).

So where money is concerned this would be your best choice at the moment. But if you simply like the series without being a "die-hard" fan then I'd advice you to steer clear of this one and get the original instead.

When watching this DVD I only used the English sub and even though it has some very nice extra's when it comes to the Director Cut episodes (the guys from SEELE really sound more creapy) it can be an annoying experience in the overall. Some of the main characters (Ikari, Ibuki and the "long haired" collegue of Huga) got totally changed voices. Although Ikari's voice isn't as annoying the others are just totally wrong choices. In some cases it really does not reflect the personage.

If you're just looking for something new on the Evangelion front then I'd really advice you to wait for the moment where the currently being released platinum collection reaches this number. Its almost as if the released movies and Director cuts were the tests for the Platinum series. Everything which the movie or director cut lacks (wrong voices, weird animation) is totally made up in the Platinum series. That is truly a "blast from the past" re-run.
