NERV's motto of sorts, "God's in His heaven; all's right with the world," comes from a poem by Robert Browning called "The Year's at the Spring". The full text: "The year's at the spring,/ And day's at the morn;/ Morning's at seven;/ The hill-side's dew-pearled;/ The lark's on the wing;/ The snail's on the thorn; /God's in His Heaven-/ All's right with the world!"

It is impossible to tell where the Evas are housed and
launched from. Launch shafts can be seen in several episodes - mostly straight, but with several angled sections - which imply that it must be somewhere between the Earth's surface and the ceiling of the GeoFront. However, in episode 19, it is shown that Eva cages are at the HQ level (at the bottom of the GeoFront). Moreover, it takes only a minor amount of time for the characters to travel from HQ to the Eva cages (as in episodes 1 and 6). See more »

ADV began releasing Neon Genesis Evangelion: Platinum Edition on DVD in 2004. Each episode was fully restored visually by Gainax as part of an Evangelion renewal project, cleaning up and slightly lengthening the animation in each episode. Also, the original stereo sound mix for both the Japanese and English language versions were remixed into 5.1 surround sound. Additionally, bits of dialogue in the English language version were rerecorded. Specific examples of this include references Misato makes to "brain damage" that are replaced with "mental contamination" in order to correct a translation error in the original dub, and the dialogue played over the episode previews was completely redone to fit their revised lengths.

What can I say about the most perfect anime ever created? What can I say about Shinji, the most complex character ever created?
Evangelion begins like an action sci-fi anime, like Akira. It has everything: humor, drama, action, great soundtrack. Great fun! But then you watch episode 24... and WOW!
The 3 last episodes are the most perfect writen anime episodes ever. Yeah, some people don't understand it. Some people don't like it. But that's because those 3 episodes are about 1000 years ahead of our time. For the very first time you get inside a character's mind, you understand his problems and his fears. Yeah it's disturbing some times, but isn't real life disturbing?
It doesn't matter if you like animes or not, WATCH THIS! But watch from the beginning, or else you will not recieve the final message from episode 26. I'm sure that you will love Evangelion!
