Product Description

The stunning rebuild of the anime masterpiece is now extended and enhanced with never before seen new animation and 266 visual and audio improvements. Tokyo-3 still stands after most of civilization was decimated in the Second Impact. Now the city endures the ceaseless onslaught of the deadly Angels, bizarre creatures bent on eradicating the human race. To combat this strange and ruthless enemy, the government agency NERV constructs a fleet of towering humanoid machines the Evas and Shinji Ikari is called into action, reluctantly taking his place at the controls of Eva Unit 01.Living a life of loneliness and questioning his existence, Shinji struggles to accept responsibility for mankind's battle for survival in this visually striking rebuild of one of the most important anime of all time. Shinji will fight the Angels alongside the only person who might understand his plight Rei Ayanami, the elusive and frail pilot of Eva Unit 00. In this film experience not to be missed, Shinji and Rei will struggle to learn a simple truth: when carrying the burden of humanity's survival on your shoulders, you are not alone.

Additional Features

The blu-ray edition of You Are (Not) Alone makes it clear why Hideaki Anno has returned to his watershed tale Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) yet again. He's "rebuilding" Evangelion as he initially envisioned it, unconstrained by technological and budgetary limits, and the new visuals eclipse the broadcast series. In the original program, the Angel Ramiel was a flat blue tetrahedron; the clarity of the Blu-ray images showcases the reflections and refractions in its glassy surface. When that Angel blasts most of a small mountain into lava, the searing yellows and whites convey a sense of intense heat. The subtle palette created with computer coloring systems enables Anno to energize emotional moments between characters through the more effective use of light and shadow. Evangelion 1.11 contains about two minutes of additional material missing from the earlier Evangelion: 1.01, including some expository dialogue. When Shinji meets Misato, she explains that he has just seen one of the Angels, then gets them lost in the labyrinth of NERV headquarters. The color has been adjusted in some scenes that viewers of the earlier release complained were too dark to see clearly. The second disc contains extras not included in the initial release. "Rebuild of Evangelion" juxtaposes the often-sketchy storyboards with new CG footage of the skyscrapers of New Tokyo III rising from their silos, as well as other high-tech effects at various stages of completion. One version of "Rebuild" is incongruously set to Ravel's Bolero; the low strings and percussion of Shiru Sagisu's score make a more effective counterpoint. Four trailers play to a new arrangement of "Fly Me to the Moon" and three to the J-pop tune "Beautiful World." Although some otaku will want to keep their discs of the original series with its haunting theme song, "The Thesis of a Cruel Angel," the Blu-ray of Evangelion: 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone is a must-have for anyone interested in anime. (Rated PG-13: violence, nudity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

By ONENEO VINE VOICE on March 3, 2010
Format: DVD
Like many fans out there, you're probably wondering what in the world the 1.11 rebuild of Evangelion is considering the 1.01 release is barely four months old. While FUNimation has confirmed that 1.01 was the beginning of four rebuilt feature film releases, 1.11 isn't the second one but rather 1.01 again with some of its lighting (lack thereof) issues addressed, the addition of 2-minutes of new scenes and a second disc including a bunch of extra material.

Hard facts first: The release is comprised of a two-disc set, with the feature presentation now coming in at comes in at 100-minutes with 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 quite robust and occupy the entire second disc. Included: Rebuild of Evangelion: 1.01 (Shiro Sagisu Version, Joseph-Maurice Ravel Version), "Angel of Doom" Promotional Music Video, News Flashes, Movie Previews: Preview 1 - Color-corrected version, Beautiful World Version 2, Beautiful World Version 2A, and Beautiful World Version 2B.

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.

Evangelion 1.11 is without a doubt the best looking anime yet released on blu-ray. In the box is one 50gb blu-ray disc with the main feature (with dual audio tracks for English and Japanese of course), and several special features. Included is a booklet detailing the impetus behind the "rebuild" project, which also details a few scene by scene comparisons (original to rebuild) and character profiles. The main feature is, for me, the main attraction, and funimation doesn't disappoint. Eva looks great. In fact it's never looked better, the team behind rebuild (no longer Gainax for those who want to know), have gone back to the drawing board, literally, to recreate the show in a 16:9 theatrical format. Original key animation was used as a jumping off point for the entire project, which means that while there are many shots that look identical to the original series, there is not in fact any reused material. The end result is a pristine picture that is free from the blemishes that plagued the older Evangelion dvds you may have seen. In short, this is the best looking Evangelion available.

The story itself though, that's a different matter. To those people who haven't watched Evangelion, and just plain don't get what all the fuss is about; welcome! Evangelion 1.11 you are (not) alone is a wonderful place for you to start. To diehard fans of the series I say this; this is not the Evangelion you remember. While all the major events in the first 6 episodes are presented here in the first entry of rebuild, the pace is decidedly faster than the original series. This is probably rebuild's biggest asset and greatest liability at the same time. New fans will probably appreciate the snappy pace of the series, but if you're like me you might find the pace somewhat jarring.

In 2006, Japanese fans and anime fans of "Neon Genesis Evangelion" received exciting news that in the Summer of 2007, the first of four Evangelion films based on the anime television series would be released in theaters. According to news reports, Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno watched the series from beginning to end and wanted to fix up a lot of questions and debates that fans had over the television series and most importantly, incorporate today's new CG technology for the film versions. Even furthering the excitement is that the original crew and cast have signed on to work on the new film.

So, with mass promotion in Japan, "Evangelion 1.01 - You Are (Not) Alone" became the #1 film in Japan making over $14.6 million (US), surpassing "The End of Evangelion" which brought in $14.5 million (US). A limited edition DVD was released in Japan in 2008 which came with a script, music videos and an "Explanation of Evangelion" feature and needless to say, fans paid dearly for this limited edition DVD release (only 300,000 were made). A Blu-ray and DVD release titled "Evangelion 1.11' which included a re-transfer of the film plus three additional minutes was released in May 2009 and is currently the best selling Blu-ray release in Japan and now the Blu-ray and DVD release of "Evangelion 1.11 - You Are (Not) Alone" has been released in the US.

With many Americans waiting for "Evangelion 1.11' Blu-ray release, suffice to say, the film was released with a very short run at limited theaters and made over $100,000 and was screened at the anime convention Anime Expo in 2009 with great fanfare.
