Also, The Right Stuf International is offering some exlcusive posters with any purchase of either Eva movie from their website. With Death & Rebirth they are offering a 21.5x17 inch poster of the boxart, and with End of Evangelion they are similarly offering a 21.5x17 inch poster of the boxart from that DVD.

TRSI also points out that Manga has an official Death and Rebirth website that supposedly clears up some details about the alternate ending.

Excerpts from PR:

Manga Entertainment is proud to present the final Evangelion movie, The End of Evangelion on home video September 24, 2002. From the animators of GAINAX Studios (The Wings of Honneamise) and Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, Blood: The Last Vampire), The End of Evangelion DVD will deliver the ultimate surround and stereo audio technology available in both the Japanese and English audio tracks.

SEELE, the secret international organization seeking to bring about a new state of human existence by means of their Human Complementation project, has assembled their forces. The invasion of Central Dogma has commenced. In order to protect the Eva pilots from assassination, Asuka is launched in Unit-02. Major Misato, NERV's Operations Chief, desperately tries to persuade Shinji to join the fray, but his reluctance to do so leaves Asuka facing Seele's nine production model Evas alone. Ikari Gendo, NERV's Commander, rushes to begin his program for Human Complementation before Seele gains the upper hand. Old rivalries are resolved, and startling revelations are made as humanity's Final Judgment approaches, but the ultimate fate of mankind rests neither with Seele, nor Gendo, but within the delicate mind of Shinji Ikari

Comprised of two alternate episodes, which were intended by the animators at GAINAX Studios to take the place of episodes 25 & 26 of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series, the mind-blowing conclusion to the Evangelion saga is a visual tour-de-force that resolves many questions, and generates some interesting new ones. All key roles in the English language version of The End of Evangelion are reprised by the original voice-actors from the Neon Genesis Evangelion series!
