Forget the British, we should be thankful Shinji repelled the Angels. What's the significance of one country's independence, when Shinji defended all of humanity from extinction. His perfect blend of awkward hormones and daddy issues made him an amazing pilot. Sure, some would argue that the "Angels" were here first, or that "they" were attempting to save Earth... but those people are pinko commies if you ask me.

I'm glad we gave them an old fashion butt kicking, via a unique, trillion dollar mecha.

That said, now time for us all to feel sad about the whole "1.01 being released in the fall" and "1.11 being released next spring" thing. While I'm all for stop gap solutions, I don't understand why we are even getting 1.01 in the first place. If the differences are all remastering, then we can assume that 1.11 is, in fact, superior. We're just being told to buy an inferior, DVD only release this fall, so that we can buy a updated version on Blu-Ray later.

Gia, the FUNimation Panel is in like... an hour. Convey our nerd rage!

I assume we'll get an answer to that, someone has to ask it...
  I doubt it'll be a satisfying one though...

I'll probably import the Blu-Ray.

I have a feeling that Funimation was "told" to release it that way

@Zeouterlimits: I know its probably a business semantic, like "Buy one, buy them all." I believe in FUNi enough to know they aren't clasping their hands and laughing at us, but still... it doesn't mean I like it

Will the import have subtitles?

Agree on not liking it, not one bit.
  I was referring to importing the US Blu-Ray when it comes out next year.

But Shinji hasn't fought any angels yet. That's not until 2015. We still have a few years.
