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

5.0 out of 5 stars BLEEEEEEED! Sept. 8 2003
By A Customer
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let the beserker do the dirty work! Nov. 21 2002
By A Customer
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. The voices of the characters are kind of bland. I've seen the entire TV series on KTEH (a PBS station in San Jose). I like the Japanese version a lot better, just turn on the English subtitle and watch the entire thing. In the Japanese version when Shinji screams in terror, it makes your skin crawl.

5.0 out of 5 stars REALLY EXCELENT !!! Feb. 1 2002
By Kostas
In Vol.6 the EVA mystery is kind of answered,as much as anything is on the series,Shinji is proven to be the best pilot and the ony one to really pilot an EVA.Technically the animation is as usual flawless. The climax of the story is the true nature of the EVA-pilot bond which you have to see to believe.
Trully a fine anime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Evangelion, Just amazing !!! Dec 14 2001
Well, this is my favourite DVD on eva, i have been watching eva for 3-4 years and loved the series. The first time i seen the series was on SBS and it was my 2nd favourite episode, Ambivalence (Eva Unit-03 is an angel) And i bought all eva DVDs when they came out. Episode 19 is the ultimate ep. This is the DVD. Episode 18 is excellent in action and shinjis drama, episode 19, i never got to see this episode because my retiler didn't have episode 19 and 20, but when i watched them, i always wandered what was missing in eva, but now i get it finally, never skip a SINGLE episode, watch ALL of em' 1 by one, second by second. If anyone here likes anime, sci-fi, comedy, action and violence, eva is for you, excellent series, if anyone is a bigger fan than me, i don't believe em. (...)
Also watch out for mid next year, for the new series of eva REVELATION (i am not kidding !!!) and End Of Eva 0mn DVD and Death and Rebirth on DVD should be out April !!! KEEP WATCHING!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but not for the weak stomached! Oct. 28 2001
By A Customer
I just saw the show where the Eva unit 01 goes nuts and starts tearing 03 to pieces, and I must say this really shocked me! The Eva 01 grabs 03 by the neck, tosses it to the grounds, stomps it, and then proceeds to rip the 03 to pieces. There's blood galore, this DVD is not for the weak stomached!!!I hear the angel getting eaten is pretty nasty, too. This DVD is not for anybody under 14!
Actually though, afterwards I must say Princess Mononoke is alot bloodier...If you were allowed to see Mononoke, you should be able to see this.I took away a star because of the violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa... Oct. 12 2001
By Beowulf
When you make it this far in the series, you think you wouldn't be shocked by many things. I can tell you only one thing, THAT IS WRONG! When Unit 01 devours the Angel that defeats Rei and Asuka, it is truly shocking. You see for once what the Evas really are. They aren't juse giant biomechanical robots used to protect mankind, they're monsters just as the Angels are. Incredible storytelling, wonderful score, and all the rest are what makes this anime series great.
Go buy it.
