As an aside, the Genesis Laser Discs contained the Director's Cut episodes instead of the On-Air versions.

Air Next Time Preview wrote:TEXT: Preview
Misato (OFF): Shinji defeated the final angel,
but unable to deal with reality, he shuts the world out.
And the promised time comes.
The impending annihilation of Nerv.
Asuka is driven to the brink of death.
The Human Instrumentality Project
is about to be activated along with Rei.
Over the heads of the people rebelling against their own reality
and feeding their dreams, the Eva series descends
as if mocking the deception that is about to be uncovered.
Next time: "Air."

Misato (Off): Finally, Shinji Ikari faces the Pandemonium that is reality.
Unable to cope with the trauma, he resigns himself to a fantasy world.
Where there is no pain called 'reality'.
Where there is no fiction called 'myself'.
Where there is no fear called 'other people'.
Where there is no hope called 'others'.
Where there is no existence called 'the self'.
Next time, the finale: "My Pure Heart for You"
Are the Next Time Previews for Video Version EoE at least included with Renewal, even though the Video Version of EoE itself isn't?
