I really like the look of that Inuyasha CE (especially for the price) - I was going to watch it on Netflix, but I think I'll wait a bit for the BD instead!
Sorry to hear about your friend.Thanks for your kind words, I appreciate them, truly. Just hearing the lyrics to Eva's ending song, 'Fly me to the moon', makes me tear up thinking about him and the times we shared. The lyrics get me, every time. It was CitizenGeek - David - that introduced me to his sister, and changed my perspective on the Eva fandom.
Anyway, I shan't derail this thread any more. It was just an idea - an AUKN-only NGE competition, in the memory of a great a person. I'm sure I was asking too much given the cost, and this thread is about Anime Limited/upcoming releases.
On topic, I look forward to seeing the big reveal. I'll be very tempted if End of Eva comes with the TV series. Depends on the price point/size though: under £200, as long as can fit on shelf somehow, I might go for. Escaflowne's UE was a rather chunky rectangle I could find no space for. R1 art box DVD sets of old should be as large as go, ideally for me.
I was actually wondering this the other day, if the couple of releases that we've seen so far and the way khara is involved in the evangelion releases are any indication, it wouldn't surprise me if they're aiming for some kind of coherence across all editions.I wish we could see the package, do you guys suppose it will look like the others we have seen?
Only Germany will have a 200€ SRP (it is priced at 185€ on most retail sites). France and Italy already advertised lower prices (about 130€), and so will Spain.Can confirm Neon Genesis Evangelion's Ultimate Edition does include the films Evangelion: Death(true)² and The End of Evangelion. I reckon price-wise it'll be £199.99 SRP if they end up matching the European release of the packaging which is already 200 Euros.
I'm expecting the Evangelion fanbase to be split into different groups based on the reactions of the set.
Group A: Those who were hoping for an expensive but reasonably priced set, ends up with having to pay more:
Group B: Those who are mad in money and will end up paying for the set at full retail with no hesitation:
Group C: Those who don't care about expensive products and celebrate those who do:
Group D: Those who prepare themselves for the best and worst outcomes in order to secure a copy:
Group E: Those who have the highest of expectations and do not get what they want but will still buy it anyway:
Group F: Those who pretend to be fans and realise what they have gotten themselves into:
