About Neon Genesis Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone Blu-ray
Neon Genesis Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone is the updated home edition of the first movie in the Evangelion film remake series based on the original TV anime.
Tokyo-3 still stands after most of civilization was decimated in the Second Impact. Now the city endures the ceaseless onslaught of the deadly Angels, bizarre creatures bent on eradicating the human race. To combat this strange and ruthless enemy, the government agency NERV constructs a fleet of towering humanoid machines - the Evas - and Shinji Ikari is called into action, reluctantly taking his place at the controls of Eva Unit 01.
Living a life of loneliness and questioning his existence, Shinji struggles to accept responsibility for mankind's battle for survival. Shinji will fight the Angels alongside the only person who might understand his plight: Rei Ayanami, the elusive and frail pilot of Eva Unit 00. Shinji and Rei will struggle to learn a simple truth: when carrying the burden of humanity's survival on your shoulders, you are not alone.

Ratings & Reviews
God's in his heaven all's right with the world
by Carlos Andrés
The movie series is not to be taken as a complete retelling of the original NGE series as it will eventually contain new content never before seen in the original. The first movie starts off relatively similar to the first few episodes of NGE up to the 6th Angel's battle.
The story removes plenty of excess interaction Shinji had in his school in the original show. The story still flows well though, all the important scenes are still in place.
The art was completely upgraded with today's animation and there are several small changes that brings the life of Evangelion through even more. The movie makes use of subtle CGI effects and makes the animation seem more natural when flipping through the CGI scenes.
This movie is actually a good enough retelling that a newcomer to EVA can watch this instead of the original series, and will be able to know nearly everything that happened.

I've been a big fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion for many years. I've watched all the original series (and barely made it out alive from 25-26) and absolutely love The End of Evangelion. When I found out they were remaking the series, I was both excited and concerned, but it turns out my fears were alleviated when I finally got to see Evangelion: You Are (Not) Alone.
Gainax took the first few episodes of the series, cleaned up the story, and redrew all the art, amazingly integrated CGI (especially compared to its poor modern usage in anime) and used a movie budget to make something that looks GOOD to watch in 1080p. If you're as big an Eva fan as I am, or even if you just liked some of the series, I'd definitely recommend Evangelion 1.11. They've changed enough of it to flow better in a straight 110 minutes of run time and I didn't want to stop watching for a second.
Simple boxset nothing special but great anime....
Great retelling of a classic anime

Neon Genesis Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone is a good start to the retelling on the original anime series. This movie series is supposedly going to have 4 parts, this being the first part. The story is really well done and I feel like I enjoyed this, plus the other parts, more than the original anime series. A lot of parts that seemed rather unnecessary in the original anime series have been left out. Overall the flow of the story is really well done. The animation is nicely done and makes the new retelling look fresh and up to date when compared to the original series. I really like the updated look. The Blu-ray itself has good picture and sound quality.

This movie series is incredible. If you liked the original tv series, you should check this out. It's also good enough for people that are new to Evangelion, and may not have the time to watch the original series.
