Product Description

Amazon.ca

As this popular sci-fi drama continues to unfold, 14-year-old Shinji Ikari, the pilot of warrior-robot Evangelion 01, begins to emerge from his shell. He's traumatized in a skirmish with an octahedral flying fortress, but Misato sends him right back into battle. Rei plays defensive blocker in her Evangelion as Misato diverts all the electric power in Japan to the untested cannon Shinji uses to destroy the fortress. (They'd never manage it in California.) Shinji begins to recognize his feelings for the taciturn Rei and the garrulous Misato. He also learns his textbooks lie: the devastation of the Earth was caused not by a meteor strike, but by the explosion of an Angel that human explorers discovered in Antarctica. Complications ensue with the arrival of the third pilot, Asuka Sohryu, a temperamental redhead who quarrels with everyone in sight. She and Shinji are forced to work as a team, piloting Evangelion 03 in an unexpected sea battle with a sharklike Angel. But Shinji and his friends face even graver danger from the plots of his scientist-father and the dashing agent Ryoji Kaji. Director Hideaki Anno continues to develop his main characters while keeping the plots and subplots moving smoothly ahead. Contains these episodes: 5. "Rei, Beyond Her Heart," 6. "Showdown in Tokyo 3," 7. "The Human Creation," 8. "Asuka Strikes." Not rated; suitable for ages 14 and up: robot versus robot violence, brief nudity, and minor profanity. --Charles Solomon

In this second part of the eight DVD collection, we get a little closer to Rei, to say a LOT closer. One reason why I can pity Shinji so much (unlike other anime characters) is that he tries to do good but ends up messing everying up. In this volume, we have Shinji try to bring Rei her new ID card. He ends up walking into her house, uninvited, into her room (where we see freaky looking bloodstained clothes and pillows), and picks up a pair of glasses we've been told were Commander Ikari's. Rei walks in, Shinji turns and sees she just got out of a shower, she walks over, takes the glasses, Shinji slips on the water, falls onto Rei, drawers go flying, and before we know it, he on top of her and her towel's completely off.
This scene has a very artful way of covering nudity with objects (...).
The next on the list of people who are introduced is Asuka Langley Sohryu, the Second Child and pilot of the German-made Unit-02. She's a real sassy girl, when Toji is crawling on the floor to retrieve his wind-taken hat on the aircraft carrier they meet her on, she steps on it. A gust of wind blows up her skirt (...) and Toji gets smacked.
I don't like revealing TOO much of the story but like my others, I give an overview of the episode, a review, and a closing overall statement.
This is the next chapter and still as good as the first, yet better. The series doesn't really reach the full swing of tension, drama, and action until around Neon Genesis Evangelion 0:5 Inner Sanctums. But that doesn't mean just give up now! Keep watching if you like it!
Overall: I love the DVD, the extras (like all the other DVDs) really are bone-dry (only a few previews but some are good ie: Gasaraki, Spraggain, Samurai X The Movie, etc), but overall, if you just want the episodes, you've got the right DVD!

The English voices were cast appropriately for the characters, however the English voice acting for the most part is just plain *horrid* and the translation is often weak. You'll most certainly want to hear the original Japanese actors and watch the English subtitles where the translation is clear.
The DVD video and audio quality is itself very good, but as others have pointed out there are issues with the transfer. The video was not de-interlaced properly, so unbraided image scan-lines become briefly but painfully obvious during high action sequences, especially during freeze-frame, and the credits just disintegrate. I did not notice these interlace problems in the Japanese VCDs of these four episodes. It's disappointing but livable; there are few other visual artifacts but they are hardly noticeable.
Otherwise I agree with the reviews given by "confuse_a_cat" and Josh Leman.
This is my first DVD purchase from the EVA series and I plan to buy others. I already own a few NTSC tapes and have watched many of the episodes in VCD format.

Now that we have met Shinji Ikari, the second child, it is only fair that we follow his encounters with the other children, Rei Ayanami, the first child, and Asuka Langley Sohryu, who is the third. All of these fourteen year olds are destined (perhaps doomed) to save the world of the Second Impact from the attack of Angels - bioengineered creatures determined to destroy the human population.
We know from some idle conversation that Rei has no memories of a time before her training to merge with one of the gigantic Evangelion built to stop the angels. Badly injured in the testing of the prototype unit, it is only in episode 5 that she finally takes an active role. Rei is withdrawn and unemotional, so it is only because of a wildly embarrassing incident that Shinji penetrates her exterior. Then Ramiel, Angel 5, attacks NERV headquarters and Rei and Shinji must work together to face the threat. Then later (episode 7), Shinji and Misato confront a berserk robot created as competition for NERV's EVAs.
In episode 8 we finally meet Asuka, who is the exact opposite of Rei. Loud, egotistical, and intensely competitive, she is the pilot of EVA 02, the first 'production EVA. Shinji and Misato fly out to meet with the fleet that is transporting the new EVA from Germany to Japan. Asuka is only distracted from making Shinji miserable by the arrival of Gaghiel, the horrific sea angel. As Gaghiel starts tearing the fleet apart Shinji and Asuka must pilot the untested EVA 02 while Misato tries to come up with a scheme to stop the angel and keep the two young pilots alive.
One of the things that is notable about this series is that the pilots, Shinji, Rei, and Asuka, are all too human.

The plot thickens with the second DVD installment of "Evangelion", and there's some major character development especially with one of the main characters, Rei in episodes 5-7. As with Collection 0:1, you get 4 episodes on Collection 0:2.
This DVD overall is much improved over the first. Due to it being just a single-layer DVD (whereas the first was dual-layered) makes for much improved image quality, because the compression of video is lessened. Although the image tends to "shift" or "jump" on the first frame when cutting to another scene, this is of little annoyance to me. I've seen many other anime titles where this kind of thing is noticeable, even on VHS tapes, so this is not a fault of the DVD disc or DVD playing hardware/software.
The sound quality, as with the first DVD, is top notch. All 3 dubs (English, French & Spanish) as well as the original Japanese audio track, as with the first DVD, are all present as well.
If you already have Collection 0:1, and enjoyed it immensely like I did, pick this one up. It's worth the price.
