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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

This DVD and the ones to follow it are overall the best in the entire series. First in episode 18, we see the test of EVA 03. Unfortunetely, it goes berserk, injures Ritsuko and Misato and EVA 03 is announced as the next angel. After EVA 03 makes quick work of Rei, piloting 00, and Auska, piloting 02, it goes after Shinji. Soon, Gendo forces the dummy plug system in EVA 01 to activate. The result is the EVA exploding in rage and ends up severly injuring the pilot. Im not gonna tell who the pilot of 03 was, but Shinji gets pretty mad at his father. After having a been confined for his ruthless action against his father, Shinji leaves NERV only to come back when the next angel arrive. And this is a tough angel. Im serious. This thing made its way past Auska, who used 4 machine guns and two bazzokas, and Rei, who trys to commit suicide with an N2 mine. It even makes its all the way down to the NERV control center! Shinji arrives just in time, but while piloting EVA 01, it goes berserk and ends up eating the angel with Shinji's sync rate at 400 PERCENT! Episode 20 is a lot like episode 16. Shinji is left as nothing but LCL in the entry plug. While NERV recovers from the Angels attack, they also try to rebuild Shinji. Shinji himself in the entry plug, faces the terror of his mind once again. Pretty sweet! And it only gets better from here. The English dub is really good on this disc. If Gendo yelling "Rei!" in English doesn't give you goosebumps, the part when the angel breaks into NERV HQ is guarenteed to. Great disc! Worth every dollar.
