A couple of days, a user on our forum made an outlandish claim that he had in his possesion a legitimate store-bought version of Rebuild of Evangelion 1.0, published by Funimation. Being the skeptic I am, I laughed at him, and then proceeded to take several days to find time to go to my local urbanite deathtrap Best Buy in order to attempt to verify that Rebuild was in fact released to stores earlier than was previously advertised. The trip was fruitful, and I was able to purchase the DVD for the small sum of $24.95 and another small portion of what remains of my dignity. So despite what you’ve read, the domestic release of Rebuild of Evangelion 1.0 is out before its November 17th release date, and believe me, if I can find it at that particular Best Buy, which has a small, messily stocked anime section, you should be able to find it anywhere. Happy hunting!
