Comprising of 8 DVDs,
this beautiful boxed set from The AV Channel gathers up all 26 Episodes of
Neon Genesis Evangelion in a collectable format.
Created by the NERV
Agency, the Evangelions are a bio-mechanical answer to Earth's only hope in
the future when aliens known only as the Angels decimate roughly half the
world population. The Angels hold the Earth in check through a force
field called an absolute terror field. The Evangelions are the only force on
Earth that can make it through the fields and attack the Angels directly.
Humanoid in shape, the
Evangelions are piloted by young children who were all born nine months after
the initial meteor attack by the Angels took place. The series revolves around
evolution, God and morality and raises extremely thought provoking questions.
I found the series to be
fascinating viewing. From a DVD perspective, this title is perfectly suited
for the format with clear crisp picture and hardly any mpeg artifacts at all.
Whilst taking advantage of Dolby Digital, the series only uses 2 channel
stereo. The quality of sound is great but I would have loved for the discs to
take advantage of full 5.1 surround. That would have blown viewers away.
The quality of the
animation and artwork in general is superb whilst the gigantic battles that
take place will take your breath away with their savagery and brilliant
colouring. The storyline for Neon Genesis is unlike any other I have watched
before with character development being taken to new levels to the point that
you will feel as though you know the characters and will laugh and weep with
them as the storyline progresses.
Neon Genesis Evangelion:
Perfect Collection is exactly that, perfect. It is the collection of one of
the finest most thought provoking anime I have watched and in my opinion is a
must have addition to your DVD collection.
For those that may scoff
at animation, I dare you to watch this series with an open mind, you will be
