Listing of changes

Are there any listing of changes available? George Chen's EML email translated the Japanese release's notes for 23 & 24 (I don't think I've seen a similar email yet for 21 & 22):

Episode 23
1. Cut 1-51 Added Ritsuko's room scene. Corrections on various background.
2. Cut 52-118 When the Angel trying to get into Unit-00, added one "Monitor scene".
3. Cut 139-163 The inner Universe of Rei. Huge corrections on the drawings (note: according to the newsletter anyway)
4. Cut 139-163, 335-378, 182-190. Here, there are a lot of new scenes. We are suppose to see a "Giant Rei" before Unit 00 explodes (note: Like I said, I will not be able to confirm these notes till Sunday night. ^_^)

5. 191-223 Various corrections of scenes of Misato and Shinji.
6. Cut 223B-F Gendo and Fuyutsuki in front of the Dummy Plug. New scenes (Note: !!!!! Will see it Sunday night!!!!!)
7. Rei III. Various corrections but no new footages.
8. Cut 256-278 Agent's room. The composition which Fuyutsuki's in is different. Seele with the nude Ritsuko; composition of the scene is different.
9. Cut 279-303. Minor corrections in the elevator scenes with Ritsuko, Misato and Shinji. There seems to be more "space" after the modifications.
10. Cut 304-334. While Ritsuko describe the nature of Rei. There are added scenes of discovery of Adam, and creation of Eva.

Episode 24
11. Cut 1-14. The scenes which Asuka learned that Kaiji is dead is added.
12. Cut 15-58. The bathtub scenes are much more "clear" now due to the TV vs. LD (Note: no censorship).
13. Cut 71-79. The Rei and Kaworu scenes. New dialogue between the 2 added. (!!!)
14. Cut 319-337 Seele and Kaworu---Misato's monitor (????). New Scenes. (Note: Since this is just I am doing a literal translations of those notes....I will have to put this into context later on...again...Sunday night)
15. Cut 150-310. News scenes which Unit 02 descending into Central Dogma. Seele's dialogue is new. Lilith started to grow legssss. (Which in the original the scenes only contain Lilith without lower part of the body).
16. Cut 311-318. Light pole had been added to the scenes by the lake (Note: So? A_A ). Reflection on near the shore had been corrected.

Additional changes:

In the preview section: The original preview of TV 25, 26 are retained but *also* added the preview of "Air" and "My Pure Heart for you".

If this translation corresponds to something in Eva Fan Club, we could include them in an Eva Fan Club translations page and link to it off the main Director's Cut page as related. In terms of listing OA vs DC changes for Wiki purposes, I think we have sufficient powers of observation that we can compile something original and just use the Eva Fan Club notes as a reference to make sure nothing is missed. --Reichu 05:58, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't know whether Chen's source is the Fan Club messages or not. It seems reasonable given his mention of a 'newsletter', but not a sure thing. --Gwern (contribs) 16:48 13 February 2011 (GMT)
