Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 08

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Neon Genesis Evangelion Collection 0:8 is a single DVD that contains episodes 24 through 26 of the series.

These final three episodes of the Neon Genesis Evangelion series are a trip. The final angel reveals itself, and the interactions that Shinji has with it really affect him. The final two episodes of the series are basically psychological case studies; while the main focus is Shinji, there are also studies for Asuka, Rei, and Misato. These studies seem to be related to the Instrumentality Project that Commander Ikari has alluded to earlier in the series. The final two episodes help the viewer to better understand some of these characters, but there's not much in the way of action. However, if you've made it this far into Neon Genesis Evangelion, then you should watch this final disc to see how the series ends.

When I put this disc into my player, it played a generic ADV promo that promoted several of the properties the company was pushing at the time this DVD was released. After that, it went to the menu, which has four options: "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: Young Asuka, 17th Angel, and Second 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 two discs, this one has a menu to choose from instead of automatically starting a long collection of trailers. The previews included are for Robotech, Getter Robo, Samurai X The Motion Picture, ShadowRaiders, ReBoot, 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.
