Will we ever see an international release of this?
No and I have no idea why. I see NERV bumper stickers all the time in my town. Westerners will buy it, they either don't realize it or don't want it.
Just look at Kara no Kyoukai. For some reason those filthy nips don't want us watching their best stuff.
I value your opinion but disagree with the message. If I had to put it in one sentence it would be:
Being alone and disconnected is terrifying but connecting to others is also terrifying so one can easily lose his way as many do.
Of course not, retard. No one outside of Japan would pay $300+ for a 24 episode series and a movie, and if they were willing to, they already bought one online and imported it.
It's the TV series plus the original movies. And some extra behind the scenes stuff when it was in production.
