In the preview for the "TV version" of episode 22 (broadcast before the "director's cut" was produced), subliminal messages written in multicolored text on a white background are rapidly flashed on the screen. These were actually not used in the TV version and were relegated to the extended "mental attack" scenes added for the DC version. Interestingly, the preview for the DC version features subliminal text written in white over a black background, which appeared in both versions. See more »

Ayanami! Are you all right? Ayanami! Don't say... Don't say that you have nothing else. Don't say goodbye when you leave on a mission. It's too sad.

My Mother bought me the boxset off this that ADV released as a Christmas present last year and I must say I felt like bowing to me saying giving her a thousand thank you's.
This is the best show ever created, the characters are so lovable and their backgrounds are so depressing, this is how all anime's should be made that try to make statements that psychologicly screw you up and keep you glued to the screen, breath taken.
This show starts off on quite a light level and by the end you'll be broken down in tears, and really makes you think about life.
This is a classic in anime.
