Evangelion:1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, the first of Hideaki Anno's four theatrical remakes of the Evangelion science-fiction anime series, has sold 219,000 DVDs in less than a week of sales. That makes it Japan's best-selling DVD release so far this year. It also marks the best record in initial sales of any Evangelion DVD release to date. The two-disc "Special Equipment Edition" package in particular sold the most copies, and even the bonus film strip bundled with this edition is in high demand.
