IIRC, the original ADV release in the US was the on air release (because Gainax hadn't finished the Video/LD versions of the later episodes), while the release in Japan was Video/LD (includes DC), which the US then released individually the DC episodes which included "On air" and "Video/LD" versions of episodes 25 and 26, then the Japanese released Renewal (includes remastered DC) and US Platinum release mirrored it, where its doubles of the DC episodes were the Video/LD versions of 21-24. So that should be a total of 3 different versions: On Air 1-26, Video/LD 1-20, 21'-24', 25-26, and Renewal 1-20, 21'-24', 25-26
To clarify, I was referring solely to the ON AIR vs DC vs TV episodes we were discussing earlier. That is, I'd just be interested in seeing the actual
on air (as in TV versions) of episodes 21-24 released as extra on BluRay since I don't have them.
I was just trying to keep consistent with the naming used here previously and in the Japanese DVD release I have (the one from 2007). The 2007 JPN release - supposing it's basically Renewal? - has both the ON AIR (what you call Video/LD I assume) and DC versions of eps.21-24 - that's what they are called on the discs, AFAIK.
I think my version has 1-26 + 21'-24' + Renewal version of the Movie (Death True ^2 + EoE?).
I don't know if different video versions for eps. 1-20 exist (remastering for better picture quality aside - I'm talking about actual footage here) but I'd be interested in hearing about it. If all that was changed for the Renewal version was the added bits of audio tech babble, I guess an extra audio track could take care of that?
"Video/LD" versions of episodes 25 and 26,
Are you referring to the original NGE ending as opposed to 25' and 26' or is there also a different Video release of 25 and 26?
