This was originally intended to be a 30-part TV series, but because the show was so successful in Japan, backing distributor NHK Enterprises requested GAINAX to produce more episodes, extending the episode count to 39. See more »
I have this in Japanese, English subbed and dubbed and even in French. Slightly different edits for each. A superb show with first class animation, especially in the first episode. Some very slight nudity was removed from several edits (including the French aired shows) and there are some very powerful emotional moments - such as Marie's grief at the loss of her parents. If you can, sit down and enjoy the whole show - it will not leave you untouched. Highly recommended introduction to the real art of Japanese animation. NB: The movie which followed is not so good.
