Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 05

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 0:5 is a single DVD that contains episodes 15 through 17 of the series.

With the episodes on this disc, it seems that Neon Genesis Evangelion is finally hitting its stride. By the time I finished the last episode, I wanted to see more to find out what happens next. The audience is starting to learn that things aren't entirely what they seem, and we also learn that there is a new Eva and a new pilot has been chosen for the Eva. The episodes on this disc also have some more character development for Shinji and Misato. There was also a little more religious imagery and ideas brought up in these episodes.

When I first put this disc into the player, a trailer started. For this disc, ADV only put on two-and-a-half minutes of trailers before the main menu instead of the nine to 10 minutes of trailers included at the beginning of some of the previous discs. Luckily, the disc was authored in such a way that you can skip ahead to the menu.

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: Toji Suzuhara, Hikari Horaki, 12th Angel, and Nerv 02. 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." With this disc, it was nice to see ADV return to having a menu to choose from, instead of automatically starting a long collection of trailers. The previews included are for Shadow-Raiders, Generator Gawl, Spriggan, ReBoot, Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, and Nadeisco.

This disc, like the previous three discs, only contained three episodes of the series. However, I'm happy to see that the authoring of the disc is more like discs one, three, and four. I was also glad to see a return to a menu for the ADV Previews.

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.
