Ratings & Reviews
Anime history in flimsy packaging.
by Thomas -
The show and movies are a part of anime history. I ordered this version for the original dub and sub. The bonus features are an awesome touch and the picture and 5.1 sound are crisp and lovely.
Kudos to Rightstuf for the always excellent packaging. The chipboard box is a slick, matte black and looks great on the shelf. However, inside I found disappointing. The disc carriages are made of a flexible plastic and crammed into the disc cases. Two of the discs were floating inside and 5 out of eleven had scratches and scuffs. The discs sit flat against the carriages and the paper was torn on the cover of case 01. Fortunately, playback was not affected.
For such an important license to own, my expectations were not met for quality control during the manufacturing process. Gkids could have went the Aniplex route with the rigid crystal cases and should not have dropped the ball on the last leg of production.
I hope I am a one off, and the show and features are great. I did expect better.
This is the edition to get
by The Michael -
If you're completely new to this anime: the hype is real. Just beware because there's DAYS worth of analysis videos out there you WILL get sucked into.
But YOU'RE curious if the ORIGINAL subs and dubs are worth the price. I like that the set comes with both Netflix and Classic. Both have interesting takes on translations. And don't doubt the quality of the original dub. It's worth it.
AS FOR "FLY ME TO THE MOON". It IS absent, but still somewhat there. There's an episode that does still have a light version of FMTTM playing. And in the original dub a character is HUMMING the song. So FMTTM isn't completely eradicated from history. Just from the end credits.
Video and audio quality is so much better than the old DVDs. Very organic picture quality. And the audio is robust and juicy on my speakers. The audio is the big plus for buying this blu-ray.
Having that wider viewing experience is, in my opinion, essential. I know I can re-watch this anime with the different versions.
A Fantastic Series with a Subpar Release
by James -
Neon Genesis Evangelion is an excellent series and I was excited to finally own it for the first time on bluray. That being said, this was an honestly subpar release for a much beloved series, especially considering the hefty price tag that accompanied the limited edition. The cases used to hold the discs were very flimsy, the discs were loose in the packaging when I received them, and the cases looked like they had had sandpaper run across their surfaces. I am still glad to own this series on bluray, but this release could have been executed in a much better fashion for the amount of money GKids is charging.
Amazing series, terrible cases
Ok, so the show is great and one of the most important anime of all time, yadda yadda yadda. It's fantastic that we finally get a blu-ray release for Evangelion, and with BOTH dubs is amazing!
The cases that hold the disks are horrible though. Even before unwrapping the plastic I could hear something rattling in there. When I opened up the cases, the notches holding the different disks were BROKEN off and just LOOSE in the case. My disks don't look scratched thankfully, but I hear from a lot of other people online that they are. This is an unacceptable way retrieve a $200 blu-ray set
I have contacted Rightstuf about the cases and are sending me replacement ones though. Hopefully these ones don't break.
Great digital contents, lackluster physical contents
by Mia -
This set comes in a thick matte box which is nice but prone to fingerprints.
Disc cases are okay, but the disc trays are kind of flimsy, and although they arrived in place, they fell out with light handling while watching the show.
The box set is themed nicely, but I wish they had used more show art for this release. On the cases, or the discs, or even the outer-box; but there is nothing to be found unfortunately other than the art cards which are thick and HQ prints at least.
The included booklet is more an information booklet on the Evas, Angels, and other NGE specific terminology.
The visuals and audio for this set are superb for the release at least and of course ALL the extras! I appreciate they rescued the old dub.
All in all, the digital contents are great, the physical release not so much, unfortunately.
I do not think it is worth the price difference between this and the standard blu-ray. Would recommend for, as the title says, collectors only.
Buy this if you like the box & card art, the cheaper version is better if not.
by Keegan -
It loses a star because it doesn't have the original ED song, A reason I recommend this over buying original platinum Dvd copies of the series would be longevity & video quality. The originals are over 20 years old at this point, & the likely hood of disc rot is higher with age. Many of these copies have switch many hands, when you buy a new copy the disc will last longer. The previous owner may have preferred to use them as Neon Genesis Evangelion themed coaster & you would never know. That being said if you just want the series & don't care for looks of the box or card photos, skip & buy the cheaper version. It's preforms the same job.
A great anime classic with absolutely terrible blu-ray cases
by Dylan -
Let's get this first note right off the bat. If you only care about subtitles or prefer the Netflix dub, get the cheaper version. There is no need to spend the extra money if you aren't going to watch the ADV dub.
This box is the best way to get Evangelion, in my opinion. You'll pay about the same price for this box as you would buying the original ADV DVDs on the used market. These Blu-rays will last longer and will provide a better image quality compared to DVDs. If you are a Eva super-fan, you could hunt down the ultimate collectors edition for $600, though 99% would be satisfied with this box.
As for the cases, they are absolutely terrible. When I got this box, two of the ADV dub discs were out of their slots (luckily not scratched). One of the Netflix dub discs looks like your typical used Goodwill DVD with all the scratches.
Fly Me to the Moon is not included with international blu-ray releases, but I say the higher video quality is worth the trade-off.
My Favorite Anime Finally on Blu-ray
by Dolton -
This was my first purchase from RightStufAnime and a very important order. Evangelion was one of my first animes and remains one if not my favorite anime to this day. With the rerelease of the series on Blu-ray and my hatred for the Netflix dub, the limited or collectors edition was the only option for me. Unlike others I find the packaging is okay. The cases are okay, all of the disc were in their places. I’ve only watched the classic dubs disc but the quality is perfect. The video quality is great along with the soundtrack on my 5.1 setup.
Thank you RightStuf! I’m glad you guys have the right stuff!
A great set for Evangelion diehards
by Julius -
Bought for the original English dub. The Netflix redub is ok, but I still greatly prefer the classic. The set itself came completely undamaged. Luckily I had no issues with flimsy cases or loose discs as others have. The booklet is cool and I plan to frame the art cards. Disc 5 didn’t have subtitles for the live action deleted scene bonus feature. This doesn’t bother me, but it may you. I think I read that GKids were replacing those discs at one time if you contacted them. Not sure if anybody will still replace them now. The live action scene at the beginning of End of Evangelion has been cut and put as a deleted scene. I was confused at first because I remembered that scene at the start of the crappy Manga Entertainment EoE dvd release. Still happy to have re-experienced one of my top 3 anime in better quality and to see EoE without the messed up aspect ratio from the North American dvd.
