Product Description


The new Eva Unit 03, piloted by Shinji's friend Toji, mutates during its initial test and becomes an Angel. When Shinji realizes another human being is inside the menace, he refuses to attack it. Using an override circuit, Shinji's father takes control of his Eva and rips the 03 apart. Horrified and disgusted at this brutality, Shinji quits as an Eva pilot--until a new and more powerful Angel strikes at NERV headquarters. Seeing his friends Asuka and Rei overcome, Shinji returns to defeat the deadly new foe. But his Eva goes berserk, attacking and devouring the Angel. As it grows in power, the Eva partially absorbs its pilot. Drifting through semiconsciousness, Shinji confronts memories that recur in variations, like an aria by Philip Glass. Characters in other, popular mecha series never confront these moral dilemmas. The youthful pilots in Gundam Wing adhere to a warrior code that extols heroism; they have few qualms about slaughtering their foes. Shinji knows that warfare is not a noble calling, and that causing the death of a human being is a horrifying prospect. His ambivalence about his role as a pilot forces him to analyze his troubled relationship with his remote and brutal father and how that relationship has warped his self-perception. Episodes: 18. "The Judgment of Life," 19. "A Man's Fight," 20. "Form of the Mind, Form of the Man." Not rated; suitable for ages 14 and up for robot versus robot violence, nudity, minor profanity, and sexual situations. --Charles Solomon

Since I have been reviewing this series one DVD at a time, it has finally occurred to me that readers are tired of being told things like 'even better,' or 'adds a whole new level.' There isn't much question but that is exactly the effect that Gainax and director Hideaki Anno intend. We have reached the stage where the mysteries will be peeled away in layers like an onion, and this isn't intended to be a 'comfortable' process.
The twin focus of these episodes is the nature of the EVA, and the still developing character of Shinji. In a sense, the series comes into its own now, shedding any remnant of the children's mecha appearance that it initially wore as a disguise. We are being drawn into a startling investigation into what is human, and what is not.
In 'The Judgement of Life' Toji Suzuhara, the fourth child, is set to testing EVA 03. But the terrible happens, and the 13th Angel (Bardiel) interferes, seizing control of the EVA. When Gendo Ikari orders Shinji to destroy the EVA the boy refuses to kill his friend. Gendo orders EVA 01 into auto pilot mode and Shinji mush watch in horror while his father forces the EVA to become a raging killer.
'A Man's Fight,' find's Shinji repelled by everything his father stands for and refuses to pilot an EVA again. He is on his way home when a new Angel (Zeruel) appears and makes short work of Rei and Asuka. Shinji forces his way back to NERV headquarters and demands to pilot EVA 01. When the Angel nearly destroys EVA 01, Shinji achieves total integration with the EVA as it develops a life of its own... as a cannibalistic killer!
'Form of the Mind, Form of the Man' finds Misato and the NERV staff desperately trying to separate Shinji self back out from the creature that EVA 01 has become.

Quite simply, this is the place the plot was building to. The tension, the personalities, the people all reach their head here.
Shinji finally starts making decisions of his own- much to the chagrin of everyone around him.. and Kaji, well, Kaji proves to be the most inciteful and insightful character of the bunch. Thank you, Kaji, for your sermon amongst the watermelons, its simply the best scene in modern anime.
The DVD is fairly light on the features and functionality, but that has been a gripe from day one about the Eva DVDs. Thankfully, their story is carried well enough that it doesn't matter.. But still, this is a popular series and really deserving of better presentation. Sadly, the series ends in many ways after this DVD. They mix the psychological and the physical so well for this DVD that everything afterwords seems like an Epilogue. The choices were made here, fates decided on the spur of the moment. In short, this is a must-have dvd in the series. Rent the rest, own number 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Awakening of Evangelion Test Type Unit 01 June 12 2001
This is really where the psychological part of the Eva series takes off. After going beserk in a test, Unit 03, piloted by Toji Shuzara, the 13th Angel, Bardiel, awakens inside of the Eva. Taking out Asuka and Rei, Shinji comes, but doesn't attack for fear of injuring the pilot. The Dummy Plug system is then activated, and 01 becomes a brutal monster. Toji looses and arm and leg.
After Shinki quits NERV, another angel attacks, taking out Units 00 and 02. Shinji then comes just in time, but Unit 01 runs out of power. After getting its arm cut off, 01 goes beserker, and gets an incredibly high sync ratio of 400 %. Unit 01 begins its "Awakening", eating the 14th Angel alive, and gaining an S^2 engine. Shinji has been absorbed into the Eva.
NERV attempts to rebuild him, while trying to conrol Unit 01, because its binding was melted off when it Awakening happened. While being "rebuilt", Shinji gets trapped inside his mind, going over experiences shut out by him.
This is where the true meaning of the series comes into better view. The mind and heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evangelion starts to heat up in Volume 6 April 11 2001
Up to this point in the series, Evangelion was, at most, fairly serious. During the first several volumes and episodes, the plot was a mixture of comedy and action. As the story starts to unfold, the plot slowly becomes darker-- Volume 6 is where it becomes apperant that this is change is permanent.
In episode 18, Toji has been seleceted as the fourth child, although Shinji is yet unaware. An angel that has been sleeping inside of Toji's EVA for some time awakens during an activation test with Toji still inside, and NERV calls in Units 00, 01 and 02 to destroy it. It is a very important episode in which many important plot details are explained, including foreshadowing into what EVA really is.
Episode 19 is one of the most important episodes in the series, finally revealing to us what EVA is, and what a bombshell it is. After his father forces him to nearly kill Toji, Shinji quits NERV. Meanwhile, the 14th angel attacks and Units 00 and 02 are no match for it alone. Shinji has no choice but to return. But during the battle, something horrifying happens...
In Episode 20, the aftermath of the previous battle leaves Shinji with a 400% sync rate and his soul absorbed into Unit 01. Now it's a race for time to get him out...

5.0 out of 5 stars BLEEEEEEED!
Ouch! These 3 episodes were hard to watch the first time around. They were very disturbing, because the violence was absolutely mind numbing and gory.

This is the best part of the series, however, ADV didn't do justice on the DVD either. The picture is somewhat hazy, and the English dubbing isn't up to par. Read more
