Evangelion DVD vs TV: TV Re-Remastered?


Fans have been surprised to note yet another remaster of Evangelion, with the newly airing HD TV version of Evangelion You Are (Not) Alone 1.** carrying a trailer differing both from the theatrical and DVD versions, with some saying it looks to be the definitive version.

The comparison is visible above, with the DVD on the left and the TV on the right.

Just when will the remasters end for this series?

For those wondering, the TV version also leaves Rei’s oppai well alone…

    The remastered version looks weird.
    But I'm sure I'll pic it up.

    The HD-TV screencap of Eva-unit 05 looks god-awesome.

    How many times I have to re-re-watch this again T.T
    Thank God they don't make this to every anime.
    I'd stop to watch them.

    Not surprising since Eva 2.0 is on theatres, the remastered might have been provided by Studio Khara themself to match up with the theatres.

    Hmm. I like some of both side. The shot of Kaoru on the right, for example, and the one below it. But I also like a few on the left. To me, the right side won though.

    Good to see they didn't fix what wasn't broken.

    Evangelion,why do they keep making new version is it like the freaking lord of the rings of otakuu culture.

    Lotr had tons of revisions so does this why don't they just stop making new movies and stuff.

    The series i presume is finshed Over does the series have such a cult following that it keeps kicking or what is it.
    I mean what are they getting at here all your seeing is the same story retold with new frames of animation,ok i can see remastering it but stop adding new things to it Gainax if they want to continue something make FLCL make sense.or continue that.
    God Gainax stop making new stuff for it it's over the series is DONE.Jesus Christ. make more FLCL that's a series that does need new episodes that they made.

    The remasters will continue until morale impr-- er, until Gainax keels over. (...harhar, "Keel" over.)

    Some good things about both versions. The color adjustment is nice in some parts and the crispness is refreshing, but I still like the gloomy feel some of the others have. I'm torn.

    I noticed they replaced the bitch-slap scene, though (as well as Shinji's amusingly manic expression) ... that's a bit of a drag.

    DvD > TV, my Opinion.
    I wonder when Hideo will stop his remastering Madness, i bet the Release of the DvD/BD will also be splitted in numbers, you know what i mean, milk the cashcow.

    I dunno... the more dark feel to the DVD version I think fits the series better than the bright pretty colors... I mean, it may just be me, but... The new 'remastered' HDTV version just doesn't seem to feel the same...

    i thought so too, but in some parts it was just too dark to see the characters on screen in version 1.01.
    i'm happy they redid it digitally and solved those problems. plus, i guess we'll see some details of those pretty characters.^^
    I guess here we have 1.01 (dvd) against the 1.11 final (tv) version.

    TV version is oversharpened. Look at the faces, they look so much better on the left side.

    I agree. The left side gives that gloomy atmosphere. <3

    I prefer the DVD version for frame no.5 in the first image. The wires and the sunset fit well.

    I'm beginning to think Gainax is treating Eva like a computer program: Forever improving it (new material) and working out bugs (all the remasters and edition.)

    They should start selling software if they wanna milk money from people like this. (NERV-brand "666" Firewall! Will protect you from hacking attempts by the equivalent of 6 bio-organic supercomputers for 8 hours! Reserve your copy today!)

    I can only hope the NERV brand computer I buy doesn't pull a "HAL" on me, I don't think my sanity could take it. T_T

    I can see it now..."I'm sorry Exitium,I'm afraid I can't do that."

    Blah blah blah blah............this series to me was all a mental crazy thing which is normally a bad thing, but it was surprisingly a good mental crazy thing to me. And now a remaster..........why not just make more episodes DAMMIT! I say this out of an arbitrary nature, non inherent to anything at all. Seems like such an invidious sense at original artwork.

    Yeh, HDTV > DVD, who would have thought? :P

    But seriously, aside from the resolution the colours have been nicely reworked, they're much more vibrant :)

    I prefer the softness of the DVD shots in some of those.

    I.e. the second impact, the one with Rei and the last one.

    Agreed. You can definitely feel that deep-core evangelion vibe.

    Lol whut? Aren't the pictures from the teaser of 2.0?

    20:49 04/07/2009 # ! Neutral (0)

    yes, they are, at least the ones from comparison pictures. So the TV version of the movie itself probably isn't better than for example 1.11, only the teaser was improved. That's not a big difference....

    Yeah, I don't see the big deal if it's just remastering the trailer. They ARE trying to promote it. This article is sort of a misnomer...

    And this is why I haven't bothered with Eva since I first watched it on VHS all those years ago... every five fucking minutes they're doing a new version.

    It's not a remastered version...

    the left one is the "preview" of 2.0 that was made during 1.0, while the right one is the final version of the left one (coz I saw those scenes on 2.0)

    gainax is a master at reselling the same thing 6 times. at increasing prices. i find it a bit ridiculous that there are 3 or 4 versions of the original series with one or 2 extra things thrown in and the movies aren't going to be any different. they'll release 4 versions of each one and all the hardcore obssesed fans with buy every version.

    The clarity appears; The authenticity disappears

    Both are quality, but I prefer the original.

    It's just that I prefer hand-drawn versions than vector traces.

    I seem to prefer the one on the left, even though the one on the right is crisper n whatnot, I prefer the left.
