Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 01

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 0:1 is a single DVD that contains the first four episodes of the series.

The episodes on this disc are definitely meant to establish the Neon Genesis Evangelion universe, as well as to provide character development for Shinji Ikari, the main character. Right now, the pacing of the series feels a little on the slow side, and I hope that the pacing will improve as I watch the other DVD releases for this series. My initial impression of the series so far from watching the episodes on this disc is that while Neon Genesis Evangelion isn't the best anime series I've seen, it's also not the worst series I've seen, either.

On the disc, you can select from four menu options; the options are "Scene Access," "Communications," "Extras," and "ADV Previews." For "Scene Access," you can choose which episode you want to watch on the disc. "Communications" is the option for subtitle and language selections. For subtitles, you can choose to either have them on or off. For language, you can choose from English, Spanish, French, and Japanese.

The "Extras" menu contains three options. The first is labeled as "Character Bios"; the bios include a picture of the character and a brief text write-up. The characters included in this feature are: Shinji, Misato, Aida, Eva Unit 01, Angel #3, and Angel #4. The next feature is "ADV Website"; all this selection does is to take you to a screen that has ADV's website featured on it (however, since ADV no longer exists, this link is rather irrelevant). The final extra in this menu is the DVD credits.

The final selection on the main menu is labeled as, "ADV Previews." This is a menu that allows you to choose from the trailers included on the disc. The previews on this release are for Getter Robo, Daiguard, Spriggan, Soul Hunter, Arc the Lad, and Bubblegum Crisis (however, from the visuals included for Bubblegum Crisis, it appears that it's actually a trailer for Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040).

If you’re a fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion and haven't either already picked up this DVD release or one of the DVD box sets that were released for the series, this could be worth adding to your DVD library if you can find it for a reasonable price.

I wrote this review after watching a copy of this disc that I checked out through the King County Library System.
