All in all a great BD!

Haven't watched the English dub but will give it a view this weekend. Only real downside so far of the actual disc is not being able to have subtitles for the dialogue only! It was distracting anytime having subtitles come up at the top of the screen giving out the lyrics for the songs. It would've been nice to give fans an option- Subtitles All, Subtitles Dialogue Only & Subtitles Songs Only

Still, image is nice & sharp! Audio crystal clear! And this Eva nerd is once again tearful that we haven't heard a thing about what happens next!

The official bloody release date was yesterday, and yet Amazon still has not shipped my copy which I ordered, oh, three weeks ago? What gives, Amazon Dot Com??

I need my copy of Evangelion Two Point Tutu: You Can (Not) Dance, now with additional dance sequences set to the score of Swan Lake and West Side Story. Will Shinji ever escape his oppressive giant-robot-piloting lifestyle and fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a ballerina?? I just gotta find out!

I think is a joke about those ballet dancer Rei and Asuka figures...?

I thought it was a reference to Black Swan?

Also: still awaiting my copy to arrive (only a day has passed, but...); hopefully it'll show up tomorrow. I'll be sure to screencap the DVD menus for both discs. :)

Given how bad the packaging looks, I think I'll wait 3 months for the local version instead of importing the US version.

So, I got an e-mail from amazon yesterday saying that the screwed up my shipping and that my DVD probably won't come in the mail until the 4th of April.

Okay, seriously. Why didn't I just buy this thing at Best Buy for $15? Oh, well. I'm going for the Blu-Ray in a few weeks anyway.

Tuesday is the industry standard release date.

Ugh, white bits of paint on what should be an ORANGE DVD case just from removing the damn sticker is not cool, Funi. (Is it that hard for there to be an easy-to-remove sticker like with the FLCL DVD? Or even better: put the DVD'S sticker OVER shrink-wrap instead of on the DVD CASE? >_> )

It's really a minor issue, but an annoyance and unprofessional nevertheless.

Going to glance at the DVD menus and post them. At least the booklet is nice (and includes Aoba :kawaii: ).

EDIT: Skimmed through the Extras, all good stuff. Haven't had subtitles problems with my Extras.

This release has some seriously shitty packaging. It gets worse every time I look at the case.

I went to put in my Eva 2.22 disc back in it's case as I got my Wings of Honneamise BD today (which has like 100000x better packaging than this, although it did/does have an MSRP of $80...) and... more chips on the slipcase. The BD casing's eco casing with the bits cut out of the plastic made a mark in the back of the cover when I pressed the disc back in. The cover is all deformed and wavey looking, like it was printed on the cheapest possible paper ever. There's also a small tear in the manual for some reason, guess it got caught inside the case or something.

Packaging wise, it feels bootleg quality. Maybe even worse. Thankfully the movie/audio quality itself is good I guess.

Packaging issues aside, I love Rebuild's handwriting-style logo. It eschews blocky "sci-fi" type fonts you'd think would be found on stuff like this.

Y'all must've got jipped because my case has a few chips on the edges which is typical but doesn't have half of the issues I'm hearing.

So I've finally gone through scouring the RA-US Blu-ray for it's technical details.

Video
Contains a clean video track that does not have the Japanese translations burned into the screen. It is offset by 48 frames in the beginning and then adds about 200 frames to the end for authoring credits compared to the RA-JP Blu-ray. All titles are replaced with English only titles. Credits are REALLY FUCKING SLOW and double spaced because Funimation doesn't care about the Japanese crew and seek only to shamelessly self-promote themselves.

Audio
Japanese TrueHD track is 20-bit except for the center track, which is 16-bit. English TrueHD track is 16-bit. A few sound effects at the very beginning opening logos are removed (The Starchild Records logo and EIRIN logo) in both tracks. Why? I have no idea.

Subtitles
A bit cleaner than what I saw in theaters. Was not as wordy. Though they subbed some unnecessary signs, and the background songs are still subbed.

Extras
Originally, I thought that the extras were identical to the RA-JP Blu-ray, but apparently, Funimation does not have the license for Utada Hikaru's Fly Me to the Moon, so the Teaser was not included. Neither was the Yahoo.jp spot. About half of the TV spots were included (run time for Japanese was 2:40, US was about 1:40). They did not organize these, either. Instead, they just lumped them together as one playlist so you have no idea what you're watching. For the "I Would Give You Anything" Scene NOGUCHI ver., the DTS-MA and 2.0 tracks were dropped, thankfully (it's stupid to use DTS-MA in the first place), but why Funimation didn't dub that version is beyond me. All it would have taken was a simply copy paste of the center channel and nobody would have been the wiser. Hell, now that I think about it, I may just do that and see how it turns out. Each of the Omit Scenes was fully subtitled, so I don't know what people were griping about when they said only a portion was subtitled.

You have the Bluray, I have the DVD. This probably has something to do with it.

I got it on the day it came out at Best Buy. Feels good.
"Let me make sure I'm understanding you correctly. You've read through this entire story so far. To recap, the story has featured Rei wondering if she has become a giant insect and considering wearing a Carmen Miranda hat, Kaji completely blowing off important duties, Shinji and Asuka blowing up a building downtown, Misato driving drunk and nearly killing Rei in a hit-and-run, Fuyutski fearing imminent death from a man dressed as a giant slice of pepperoni, Rei talking to a bagel, and Shinji and Asuka digging up an entire cemetery. And now it's character derailment. Okay."-Esselfortium
