I'm pretty happy I picked up the Holiday edition when it was nice and cheap considering we're going to have to wait so long for blu rays.

Just annoyed that I barely missed out on Gundam...picked up 8th ms team right before the prices shot into outer space but that's it unfortunately. Lacked the funds at the time.

Look at the bright side everyone, at least we'll have Eva on blu ray loooong before the older UC gundam series.

And as far as Rebuild being a GOOD alternative to the series....I would say it's an OK alternative to the series.

I think Rebuild is better than the series.

The series is still my favourite anime series of course. I would be first in line for a Blu-ray set.

I'm withholding my judgment regarding Rebuild until I see the final film.

Sometimes it seems that the only thing predictable about Anno is how unpredictable he can be.

You're really underestimating the DVD remastered Platinum/Renewal release.

Check this comparison of the Renewal/Platinum versus Perfect and you'll see how much of a difference it is of night and day.

This screenshot is from the Platinum R2 PAL (UK) release and looks identical to the Renewal R2J.



By the way, it's Blu-ray not "Blu Ray".

The worst thing about that original Perfect Collection is that the image constantly juddered around like crazy, to the point where it was seriously distracting.

Something that they meticulously fixed for the Renewal/Platinum masters.

"Blu-ray quality" is a too loose term because what do you expect from that? Properly remastered, upscaled or stored SD episodes in a Blu-ray Disc?

As far as things goes now the Renewal/Platinum DVDs are the best way to watch Evangelion and I'm loving it.

The absolute worst disc was the first pressing of Collection 0:1, though. It had overlays over Japanese signs, smeary video, and tried to eliminate the judder caused by scene changes by still-framing those transitions. The CDC should've banned it from retail shelves due to the high probability of it inducing eye cancer...

Are you purposely being obtuse?

Eva was created on film and can be scanned in high definition again, just like any other analogue film. No one here wants SD episodes on Blu-ray Discs. Why would anyone want that?

It was the early days of DVD encoding which meant they'd hardsub over softsub content.

Here no one wants SD episodes on Blu-ray? Possibly true, but elsewhere there's fans who wouldn't mind.

Did you know that for Dragon Ball Z the best release is still the original Dragon Box Z DVD? So in this case fans would rather have Toei/FUNi store the SD episodes in a Blu-ray Disc than getting a crappy remaster (DBZ Season BDs) or upscaled with DNR (Forget Q-TEC they'd use their own team).

Still not high definition. As I said, it was made on film, so that film can be re-scanned in high definition, and that will look much better than the admittedly already very nice looking STANDARD RESOLUTION platinum release.

It definitely can but Gainax is taking ages and I got tired of waiting so I just hunted down all 7 DVDs for extremely cheap prices and now have all seven.

By the way, did you know that a company in Germany is releasing Naruto on Blu-ray, but wait for it... The quality is SD in a Blu-ray Disc? Yep. It's not the first time either.

Eva TV on Blu-ray is definitely not going to happen until the 4th Rebuild movie is done, that's for certain. Fortunately the Renewal/Platinum DVDs aren't too bad.

Aren't too bad?

The Renewal/Platinum DVD collection is great and I've got nothing against because over at anime communities we're more used to it on DVD than BD because companies tend to mess it up or it's not as good as it should've been.

However, when they properly remaster anime series in HD for a Blu-ray release then it's worth upgrading.

Series like Elfen Lied, Ergo Proxy and Soul Eater I have no reason to get the Blu-ray version because the DVD looks gorgeous upscaled in 1080p.

Director Hideaki Anno discussed the possible timeframe for Evangelion: 3.0+1.0, the fourth film in his four-part remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series, at a discussion event at Tokyo's TOHO Cinemas Nihonbashi on Monday. He said, "I'll get to it. I kept you waiting, but since Evangelion: 1.0 came out in 2007, 2.0 in 2009, and 3.0 in 2012, there's been two to three years between films. Wouldn't it be nice if the next one comes four years no, six years [after 3.0]. (laughs) No, I'll do my best."

Variety reported on Anno's comments on Evangelion at the Tokyo International Film Festival a day earlier: "I am definitely doing it, but I have to do this sort of thing [such as Animator Expo] as well. I'm thinking that I'll return to Evangelion after I do something different."

At the talkshow event in Tokyo on Monday, Anno also talked about his relationship with Hayao Miyazaki, and how Miyazaki talked to him in times of need. Anno mentioned that after the Evangelion television series was finished, "I was frazzled, but in reality I was close to death." He added that at that time many people helped him, but the one who really saved him was Miyazaki.

Anno said that Miyazaki called him after the Evangelion television series ended after hearing a rumor that Anno was in danger. At that time Miyazaki told Anno, "I've felt the same way. It's OK to rest. Until you are able to create something again, it's OK to rest as much as you want. Because if it's you ... both people and money will gather." Anno said that Miyazaki's words really put him at ease.

More recently, Miyazaki told Anno that it was OK if he quit, but immediately afterward said, "No, it's best if you do it. Because you said you'd try your hardest to the end, you will accomplish it." While talking about the fourth Evangelion film, Anno said while wiping away tears, "Even now, when I remember it, I cry. It's really painful to remember."

I'm in no hurry for 4.0 after seeing how utterly garbage 3.0 ended up being.

3.0 might make more sense and fit better into the series when all 4 are watched together?
