But what I'm saying is that maybe the extras on the 10th Anniversary Set aren't worth the extra bucks. And after reading the posts here, it does seem that ADV has gone about releasing NGE the wrong way. Maybe I should just stick with the Platinum/DnR/EoE deal on Amazon instead of purchasing the 10th Anniversary Edition.

..Then grab the jacket off eBay. I'm already fantasizing about it. Besides, all that extra stuff about the VAs doesn't really catch my attention all that much.

Is this jacket going to have a big ADV logo on it? Does anyone have any idea what it looks like?

I do like the way ADV did the English voice acting for Evangelion in particular. And I'm thinking this will be the release that will be done right and make the extras worth it.

It'll come with a big image of Tiffany Grant in a plugsuit embroidered on the back.

I would buy as many sets as possible, even resort to stealing the coupons for the jackets, in an effort to hoard them and burn them, harnessing the fire's intensity (for it shall be a flame of HELL) as a renewable power source for all eternity.

Or, y'know, I could just not want it more. XD

As far as the new boxset goes. Does anyone like the cover art? Personally, I think it is rather weak. The Platinum boxset had better design/artwork. Plus, the "metallic" look to it makes it stand out more. The 10th Anniversary set is just plain old black. I mean, there are already tons of shows that use black on boxsets already.

That "Karowu Died For Your Sins" line is a bit dumb too.

The best quality DVDs are the ones in Japan (Renewal). The image is crisper than Platinum, and has NO interlacing. (Although, strangely, Platinum shows slightly more of the actual "picture".) The beautiful remastering of the movies also, thusfar, exists only in Japan.

Unfortunately, they're also R2. But I never watch NGE on the actual TV anyway.

I <3 that line. It really makes me chuckle, and I always imagine Kaworu nailed up in Terminal Dogma, with the Lance of Longinus pierecing his... entirety, and then a houndred years later people'll start worshiping him and think the cruisified MP EVAs are symbols in his likeness and they'll dive into the Sea of LCL to spread faith of Kaworu among the Instrumentalized humans.

Just look at one line can do to a person. Incredible, no?

The boxset does look bad compared to the platnium set. What they should have done was mad the platnium and slapped on a logo saying "10th Anniversery Boxset" instead and have a range of different jackets for all the characters.

e.g. Rei Ayanami jacket says "I'm a clone too" or something else.

But bringing out a 10th anniversary boxset right after the Platnium Boxset is pretty stupid. I mean it's good they're celebrating the anniversary on Evangelion but if your going to bring something out to celebrate put a bit more work into it ok.

Are there any pictures/descritons of the jacket? For a fistfull of Grants more than the platinum edition, it'd better be pretty sweet looking. I already own the platinum thinpack though so I doubt I'm going to be buying this.

There really is the question though... When one of the HD formats becomes more popular, what will Evangelion look like on it? After all, the show was made for 480i standard definition broadcasting, not 1080p high definition, not to mention that it's in 4:3 aspect ratio. I'm sure that Gainax and ADV will have a card up their sleeve to get us all to shell out for it though. :roll:

Maybe they'll end up "porting" the animation the way they did for Death and Rebirth.
