"These three episodes boast the most from romance. The opposties-attract love of Shinji to Auska, the quarky love sparks of Kagi and Misato and the classic school romance of Togi to Hikura. The first epsiode has more secrets revealed and also discusses more about the relationship between Shinji and his father and also discusses Shinji's dead mother. In the episode, we see Kagi and Misato get a little more closer and Auska make her first kiss with Shinji (if not regreting it later). The episode ends with a big secret revealed so alarming, Im not even going to tell you. The second epsiode is a more emotional volume with Shinji being eaten by an Angel and thrown into a state of stress as his mind plays tricks on him and he gets to see a breif glimpse of his mother. The last volume discuss more EVA fun! Evangelion 04 was destroyed in an explosion, so the US decides to send over EVA 03 to Japan and everyone is guessing who the pilot will be. Its a two part episode, but just by watching the first part, you already know who it is. For Angel fighting, there isn't much of it in here. Most of the DVD is just charcter development and inteligent plot twists, but its a very good volume. I really enjoy watching the Spanish and French language ADV included (thank you, DVD). Bio will most definetly include Angel #12, but thats about all I know right now. Stay tuned. The next volume is where the story really picks up and has an impressive fight scene. More fun to come!"
Not Really better

"I think this DVD series isn't really better than the VHS Version, i saw the series for the first time form original VHS from a rent video store, and i must say the quality in this DVD its NOT BAD but isn't EXCELENT either, it could be better(i know this is a VHS based recopilation), so i rate this DVD 4 Star for the content, I think no one who owns the Original VHS verion need to buy this, if you saw the series in the horrible VIVO format, you must get this one, after all its less expesive than VHS, and you get litte more Quality.VEREDICT: This is the best you can get: 4 languages, Good Picture (some stability image problems), Subtitles, Extras. A good Buy if you buy this series for the first time.Sorry About my BAD English"
I won't spoil a thing!

"DVD 0:5 is *great* if you've been following the series. I don't suggest getting this, or any other, unless you start from 0:1 and go in order. You just won't know what's supposed to make sense and what's not. The series makes a drastic turn for the serious in these episodes (and from then on,) so get ready to discover a few new things, and raise a LOT more questions. The first and last episodes on it are mostly storyline forwarding, but it's still really exciting. The middle episode does have some fighting, but not that much. Still, it's highly recommended, as it just reveals so much more."
A precursor of things to come.

"This is one of the more important collections in the series. There is disturbing imagery and and deep psychological meaning. Of course this is child's play compared to what's to come. Depending on your kind tastes of anime, you may like or hate these episodes. Gainax forces you to watch every detail if your going to want to understand anything about the story.But in my opinion, that is what makes "Evangelion" much more rewarding than most other shows."
