Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 06

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 0:6 is a single DVD that contains episodes 18 through 20 of the series.

With the episodes on this disc, there have been obvious shortcuts taken on the animation; I would assume that this was done in an effort to cut down on costs. As the episodes progressed on the disc, it was obvious that the animation had less detail than earlier episodes in the series. Also, it was very noticeable that animation was being reused. In one section, I understood that the reused footage was being used deliberately for an effect; however, in other spots, it felt more like a "cheat" than for any real aesthetic reason. Story-wise, Shinji goes through a couple of situations that ultimately help to progress him from the whiny kid he had been to someone who is starting to develop a little more backbone. It will be interesting to see how this change in Shinji's character affects the final few episodes of the series.

When I put this disc into the player, a trailer started. Like the previous disc, the trailer didn't run for an excessive amount of time. The disc is authored in such a way that you can skip ahead to the menu. On the disc, you can choose 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: Pen-Pen, Makoto Hyuga, Eva Unit 03, 13th Angel, and 14th Angel. The next feature is "ADV Website"; all this selection does it 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." Like the previous disc, this one has a menu to choose from instead of automatically starting a long collection of trailers. The previews included are for Nadia, Arc the Lad, Orphen, Gasaraki, Slayers: Book of Spells, and Gunsmith Cats.

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.
