I don't know if I posted here before (if I did, chances are it's ages ago and way off from my view now, so it wouldn't matter anyway), but here I go:
The main thing I would change is give a little more attention to Toji, Kensuke and Hikari/the bridge bunnies for one, and treat Evas that don't wear the numbers 00, 01 or 02 on their sleeve with more significance than just another plot device that only really matters for one or two episodes and after that only plays a vague role in the Seele shenanigans, if at all. Same goes for some of the action arc angels... some of those really could have been two-parters. Generally, more runtime to focus on aspects of the world that were only tangentially shown
Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)

If you wanted to be hyperrealistic, all of the kids would be notably uglier. 14 is the bullseye age for pubescent awkwardness.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Personally, I think we could stand to lose the DC material, with associated reductions in shipping material in EoE. And in similar vein, use a tightened up version of the alternate live action scene just to keep everyone off balance.


I haven't seen DR, but I've seen all of the directors cuts. Am I missing out on anything?

There are some interludes where the characters are gearing up for a concert, which form an extra-canonical framing device; otherwise you're down to the details of which exact bit of re-reanimation and editing appear in the various versions of Death.

I would definitely watch it at least once, for the unique footage (some of it providing information and context available nowhere else) and for the thematic juxtapositions that Masayuki chooses to make.

Also for the beautiful staff roll at the end.
