I'm pretty sure King Records was on board Eva from the start, while GL is a new property with which Aniplex was on baord from the start, so it's not really up to Gainax to take something from one and give it to the other.

Oh boy, bumpitty bump.

Me too, 'cept I'd be okay with a new dub alone. I don't see a need for a rerelease of the old one.

King Records doesn't have anything to do with Eva's American release, does it?

While I am definitely not a fan of Aniplex's pricing policy, I would probably buy an Evangelion blu-ray from them, so I can have the best audio/video quality possible and just be done with it.

I didn't buy their $500 Gurren Lagann set because it was too pricey. I might be willing to pay that much for Evangelion.

Like Mariachi, surprised about how difficult is to purchase EoE in USA. In Spain is pretty easy. I needed to substitute my old Manga Video release with the renewal edition and...

Just 9€

ANd from what I know, don't expect too much a NGE Blu Ray release because the footage only allows an upscale. EoE is another atory.

Two, is it Region locked or compatible with US DVD/BluRay players?

If you have a region-free DVD drive in your computer and the free VLC software to play them, Region Codes don’t matter. If you want to rip the video from the DVD instead, Handbreak is also a no-expense region-free software that will suit your needs.

You just gotta deal with international prices and shipping at that rate, and you’re good to go.

The English dub is not released and is still being worked on. There's a whole thread on that.

We're talking about the Spanish edition of EoE just at the moment.

I would be surprised if that had an English language dub or sub.

Uh, yes there is? The majority of the cast for it returned for the Rebuilds?

Sorry, I was posting from a phone then, and linking would have been just too hard. Search works, of course.

Kind of an old news (it's from March 4th) but Dynit, the italian publisher of NGE, was asked at a comicon about the rights for the blu ray set. They confirmed the international rights are still blocked but there's a meeting scheduled at the end of months to discuss the situation (and maybe solve it, but we all know how Japanese bureaucracy is).
Even when the sun is shining, I can't avoid the lightning.
