Neon Genesis Evangelion volumes 2–8 arrived safe and sound from @~AyaMachi~ today. (Superb job with the packing. 👍)
They join the existing volume 1:

We've got the complete set now! 😉

(Just in perfect time for the AUKN simulwatch, too. 😀)
Simulwatch will be interesting if everyone is watching slightly different versions of the same show!

I assume Netflix are going with the later iteration, which includes some extra scenes in episodes 21-24, different subtitles (if you're that way inclined) and less shakey footage than the original singles had.

Also got those director's cut versions in the form of ADV's "Resurrection" and "Genesis Reborn" DVDs. 😉👍

That's true. I've got the tin box platinum edition dvd set which has both the originals and the directors cuts for those episodes. Hadn't even thought about which ones to watch (probably go DC tbh)

  • Dark Water (仄暗い水の底から) from director Hideo Nakata. Japanese horror film from 2002, based on Koji Suzuki's short story (aka the author of Ring). Distributed by Arrow Video. Despite the age of the release (like the BBFC on the spine), it does in fact include the first print booklet.
  • Departures (おくりびと) from director Yōjirō Takita. Japanese drama film from 2008, loosely based on Coffinman, a memoir by Shinmon Aoki. Distributed by Arrow Academy. Even though this film got re-released in 2017, it does in fact include the first print booklet.
