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

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.
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 main issue here is the VIDEO. I don't know how these details got past ADV's eyes, but it seems that each time there is a cut or camera angla change, the screens in random directions, the cut occurs, and then it restabilizes. That is VERY hard on the eye! I was majorly dissapointed. Basically, let's say the camera's looking at Shinji, then cuts to Misato, the video moves around one inch left or right or up or down.
Plus, there are many typing errors in the english subtitles.
As a DVD, I'd give it only ONE star. But, because it's Evangelion, the content is still very awesome. Thus it BARELY deserves 3 stars.
Personnaly, I'd buy the DVD from Japan, but since my DVD player cannot play it because of the region-code, and because there are no subtitles, I'm _FORCED_ to buy ADV's edition. Result: Me = Mad

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. Read morePublished on Dec 5 2002 by cK70
