All,

Just so you know, we have just learned Evangelion Vol 7 has a hidden extra! Somehow about 1/2 sec of a Documentary called "Sex - The Annabel Chong Story" has made it's way into one of the Character Profiles - It appears at this point to be an error in rendering or tape transfer. It was not on our test DVDs!

It is not a pornographic shot, and the DVD is rated M anyway, so rating is OK. Just letting you all know we are aware of the problem and it will be rectified in the next duplication run. There will be no mass recall, however any returns will be honoured - if not by stores then direct from Madman. In short - Yes it was an error - but what an interesting Hidden extra!

Congratulations to all owners of this exclusive accidental DVD!

Best Regards,

Tim Anderson
Madman Entertainment

Interesting stuff madman is releasing these days.. or was this something someone snuck into work during the printing process?

*lol*

Well, I'd better wait until the 2nd production run... my mother already thinks NGE is pornographic, WITHOUT actual 1/2 second porn clips making their way into it o_O She thinks that because she always comes into the room in scenes where Misato is scantily clad, or even when Shinji goes to Rei's to deliver her access card... *meh*

And since I'm not a guy, I don't really care to see that hidden extra anyway.

please shinn, don't go assuming that ALL guys are like that, I mean, that just makes men look like perverted *******s.
Anyways, personally I don't want to see it, I think it's a real big stuff up, but madman have apologised for the mistake and said it would never happen again. What I'm also disappointed over, at the risk of sounding like a prude, is that tim actually joked about the matter. I don't see how it's funny, kid's will be viewing this disc, and if parents catch a glimpse of the problem, I can see big troubles for madman.
Yes it was unavoidable, and yes a mass recall would be too costly to be considered, but I just think that joking about it was in bad taste.

I do. I thought it was quite funny.

Not really, the disc was already rated M, and it's not like a 1 seconds clip of a woman in bra/panties and then a split second shot of her naked would put the rating up above M.

Besides, I think NGE would f*** the kids up a lot more than any amount of porn would.

I was listening to the radio the other day, and there was a story about some kiddie show. What someone had done between recording the sound and making the final video, is added the words **** this, instead of the proper sentence. I found it amusing.

uh artifice, having not seen this mishap for myself, I went on your words as saying that it was a "porn clip" that was involved. (implying that the clip was far worse than just simple nude stills, and considering that it came from the anna chong story [ie. woman who had the biggest gang bang] it could have been such a shot). Having such material on a program that is going to be viewed by children is just irresponsible. That's what I meant by saying I'm disappointed that they'd take it so light heartedly and joke it off.
Kid's not watching the series because the disc was m-rated?.. the whole series to this point was PG. Do you think people would skip out on a disc just because it was rated M.. which is only 'recommended' (not restricted) for people over 15.
as for NGE ****ing kids over more than any amount of porn, I'd have to disagree (not taking you literally).. The only reason people get so warped with NGE is because they choose to analyse it deeply. I know that my brother for one watches it only cause it has mecha, school kids as main characters, and cool enemies to fight. Point is, if people choose to see the series only as a superficial entertainment source, then they won't get ****ed over, and can enjoy it for what they see it as.
uh.. as I said before, I know this incident was unavoidable, because it wasn't present in their screentests, and I know that a mass recall would be too costly. All I'm saying is that I feel that people who see this as being 'cool' because they can get some (not even) porn flick on their disc should take a good look at their life. Since I've learnt that the footage wasn't as hardcore as previously imagined, my distaste from my previous post has decreased, but I still don't see it as credible.

It is in one of the profiles - an extra - and it wasn't a pornographic shot as mentioned by Tim. If it was in the middle of the episodes themselves or if it truly was pornographic, I'd say it would be a more serious matter and not taken as lightly. Right now, it's just a screwup and a low priority screwup at that given where it is found. It's a small irritating flaw that I view much like the sound pops I've found on ocassion in BGC2040 and sound static in RK:Trust and screen jitter in NGE - resigned disdain.

Well, there were 2 shots. Both were video, not stills. The first lasted about 1 second, and had a woman lying down, wearing bra/panties. The second only very briefly flashed on the screen and was quite dark. I'm not 100% sure but I think the 2nd was a sex scene.

How young would you consider these "children" to be? I wouldn't have thought there'd be anyone under the age of, say, 10 (at least) watching NGE. If anything, kids any younger would probably be watching DBZ or Pokemon. Anyway, I don't know about you, but if I stumbled onto this mistake when I was 10, I would've just had a good laugh about it with friends. No harm done.

True, true. But I wouldn't have thought there'd be enough action in NGE to attract these kind of people........

I think it's more the idea of the disk being special, or different to all subsequent releases that people like.... they can brag about having a limited edition disk with a mistake on it...

That's exactly what should be done.

maddog: If you saw it for yourself, you'd probably laugh... I did. You seem pretty intelligent, I'm not sure why you'd comment so strongly about something you hadn't even seen.

Oh, and the reason I laughed, was because of Fight Club The guy who Brad Pitt plays works as a film projectionist, just so he can splice snippets from porn films into family features

Anyway, it's nowhere near pornographic, the disc is rated M 15+, lets move on...

when I was 10 I was in year 4.. I knew nothing on the matter, biggest thing I had done with a girl was peck on the lips.. so I don't think I would've laughed it off, I dunno what I would've done..
Anyways, the reason I objected so strongly on the topic was because I believed the clips to be pornographic in nature (ie. gratutious), and if the head director of a company came out to protect the image of the company by saying it wasn't pornographic, I wouldn't take it to be 100% truth. I mean, certain scenes in non-porn films can be seen as gratutious on their own, but since it's only 5 mins out of 120, the film isn't rated harshly. The annabel chong story is rated R, it's a documentary on the woman who has the record for the longest sex chain, having not known the facts but going off the reactions of others considering the clips 'porn', I assumed it was pretty harsh.
Saying that, if a parent were to be around when such a clip pops up while their kid is watching it, how do you think they'd act? Most dvd players are connected to the family tv which is in the lounge room, so it's a definate possibility. Do you think the parent that saw this would think, well, that's from a documentary, so oh well, or, wow, that's different, cool!.. Point is, I was going off the assumption that the clip was bad, M15+ is a pretty light rating, as in, young kids would still acquire this film, especially since the rest of the series was PG. This would give madman big troubles, and i was disappointed that tim took the matter so lightly.
Now that I know the clips aren't at all as serious as I thought, my views have softened, as I stated in my 2nd post.

Hehe...that scene is immortal isn't it? Snow White, then a flash of c**k on the screen and an "oh!"..I laughed SO hard, because it is plainly funny. I feel that this is the same sort of case here.

I think a Tyler Durden-wannabe has secretly slipped this Easter Egg in; and to say it is a simple mistake is laughable. How the hell can a clip from a documentary on a porn queen be 'accidently' slipped into the NGE anime DVD? Hmm...

I really doubt that this was a simple accident; Nevertheless, I'm currently going to race over to the nearest anime store to see if I can pick me up one of these limited edition DVDs...just think of the bragging rights in the future...sweet .

Well, peace out; and don't argue over something as small as this, fellas . Instrumentality sure, you can. But not this, 'tis just dumb. Buh bi.

Please try and me more careful about glitches like this in future, I don't like glitches myself so I guess I will have to order this one from Madman direct.
Do I have to ask specifically for the fixed version of Eva DVD 7 or will all that are ordered direct from Madman be the fixed version ?

Through the powers of great computing, the second scene has been paused for further analysis. It a naked lady on her back with her legs up in the air. Its a side on shot, so you can only see the breasts. There is no other person seen in this shot. The lady's face is facing away so it is unidentifable.

I would say that this naked lady would be acceptable in the M classification, as there is no indication of any adult content (per se). Though in less than 0.5 sec. you can't do much

I've managed to get screen shots of the errors, but I'm not releasing them as of yet. We acknowledge Madman's mistake, though for me it is not enough to warrant a return of the disk.

Yeah, I wasn't sure, since it only flashed on and it was quite dark, whether there was a guy on the right hand side. I just assumed there was a guy, since otherwise, why would she be in that position?

You do have to wonder how this could possibly get in by mistake. ;D

I just saw the accidental error and didn't think it was too explicit. Damn funny though
I also believe the error makes the DVD kinda special. You could call it the limited Edition Eva 7 porn Disc.
