1 - I think Dragonball or Star Wars had *a lot* of re-releases, but in terms of "it wasn't just color fixes, we added in little tweaks that affected the meaning" Eva would rank highly
Question: Production I.G. animated the movies (with Gainax) and "Death"; this is why Director's Cut scenes look "different"
If not all Director's Cut scenes were from "Death" but a few were home-release exclusive...why is the animation still different? Production IG again, or Gainax with bigger budget?

> Just dug out the Death filmbook. The Kaworu and Seele monoliths scene is not in Death. My own recollection is also that that scene first appeared in the home video release of episode 24.
Yeah. That matches my recollection as well. Some enterprising fan with too much time on their hands could probably make an interesting site comparing the Death filmbook to Death (true) as recorded from Wowow to Death(true^2) as released commercially. The fact that Gainax had the film re-edited before it aired on TV just to keep people from taping it and thinking that they could then skip the upcoming home video releases amuses me.
Likewise, I wonder if anyone can find a television series that has been released on DVD as many times in different versions as Evangelion has. I think Evil Dead beats it for most times a single film has been released, but for a series? We've got at least three different releases, the original DVD pressing, the Second Impact Box Sets, the Renewal of Evangelion...
