Hard facts first: The release is comprised of a single disc, housed in a standard sized dvd case with a cardboard outer slip cover with art that directly mimics the case within. The program's runtime comes in at 98 minutes and wears an appropriate PG-13 rating due to animated action, violence and some ambiguous nudity.
Language options are standard sub & dub fair, which means the viewer is given the option of running the original Japanese dialog track or an English dub, either of which is presented in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound. The option to turn on English subtitles exists for either language choice as well.
Extras are essentially nonexistent save for an included booklet that explains precisely what this rebuilt DVD means and a note from the original screenplay writer and Chief Director of the project, Hideaki Anno.
The story, while straightforward enough in presentation, has been the source of case studies, web-site devotion, even college thesis throughout the years and hence could never be summarized accurately (with dignity) here. However, to reduce it all down to its most basic levels, a young boy by the name of Shinji is thrust into a world beyond comprehension once an attacking "Angel" comes to town.Read more ›
If you are a fan of the original build of Neon Genesis Evangelion and are worry of this just being a rehash or if your just not sure it does the series justice, than lay your fears to rest. While alot of the action remains unchanged from the original few beginning episodes, this film sets a tone for the changes to come in the Rebuild as well as provide a whole new feel to what you may be used to.
For starters Shinji for the most part is the same depressed, lonely, self loathing individual he was in the original build, except now he projects his feelings more verbally to those around him, mainly towards Misato, and at times seems like a real a hole. Misato's personality during her earlier interactions with Shinji remains the same but as the movie progresses, she acts more like an irritated stepmother toward a disobedient child towards Shinji, I must admit I was taken aback by it at first but Shinji's new demeanor almost requires her new personality. Rei is almost excactly as she was in the series, you never even really notice she has a new voice actor, except her peronality seems more peaceful now dispite her still being somewhat cold. Gendo believe it or not seems to care even less for Shinji than he did in the original series. Ritsuko hasn't changed from the original build except her voice actor which is much more apparent than with Rei but still not horrible.Read more ›
After the events of the second impact that nearly annihilated mankind, Tokyo-3's hopes for survival lie with a 14-year old Shinji Ikari (voiced by Megumi Ogata) and his ability to pilot the EVANGALION Unit 01; a massive sentient robot designed by his father, Gendo Ikari (Fumihiko Tachiki) to fight against an alien invasion mounted upon humanity called the Angels. Shinji's hopes for a simple reunion with his father are dashed as Gendo proves to be one cold-hearted parent. Taken under the wing of commander Misato Katsuragi (Kotono Mitsuishi), the young man reluctantly fights against the invaders' awesome firepower. But for reasons only he can decipher, Shinji finds himself drawn to another EVA-unit 00 pilot, Rei Ayanami (Megumi Hayashibara)...
There is much that is left unexplained in the film since this is the first of four films planned by writer HideakI Anno and directors Masayuki and Kazuya Tsuumaki.Read more ›
