Evangelion comes to a close

Manga Entertainment is about to release the final chapter in one of their more successful franchises, The End of Evangelion is coming in September.

SEELE, the secret international organization seeking to bring about a new state of human existence by means of their Human Complementation project, has assembled their forces. The invasion of Central Dogma has commenced. In order to protect the Eva pilots from assassination, Asuka is launched in Unit-02. Major Misato, NERV’s Operations Chief, desperately tries to persuade Shinji to join the fray, but his reluctance to do so leaves Asuka facing Seele’s nine production model Evas alone. Ikari Gendo, NERV’s Commander, rushes to begin his program for Human Complementation before Seele gains the upper hand. Old rivalries are resolved, and startling revelations are made as humanity’s Final Judgment approaches, but the ultimate fate of mankind rests neither with Seele, nor Gendo, but within the delicate mind of Shinji Ikari

Comprised of two alternate episodes, which were intended by the animators at GAINAX Studios to take the place of episodes 25 & 26 of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series, the DVD is presented in widescreen with audio in DTS-ES 6.1, Dolby Digital-EX 5.1 and Stereo, all in both English and Japanese, plus two audio commentaries, the dirst by English director Amanda Winn Lee, and one by Taliesin Jaffe and Jason C. Lee bringing the total to eight audio tracks. Other features include the original Japanese trailers, Japanese credits, and various links to Manga information.

Coming on September 24th, the DVD will be priced at $29.95.
