    TV Show
    In the year 2015, the Angels, huge, tremendously powerful, alien war machines, appear in Tokyo for the second time. The only hope for Mankind's survival lies in the Evangelion, a humanoid fighting machine developed by NERV, a special United Nations agency. Capable of withstanding anything the Angels can dish out, the Evangelion's one drawback lies in the limited number of people able to pilot them. Only a handful of teenagers, all born fourteen years ago, nine months after the Angels first appeared, are able to interface with the Evangelion. One such teenager is Shinji Ikari, whose father heads the NERV team that developed and maintains the Evangelion. Thrust into a maelstrom of battle and events that he does not understand, Shinji is forced to plumb the depths of his own inner resources for the courage and strength to not only fight, but to survive, or risk losing everything.

    Movie (1.0)
    After the second impact, all that remains of Japan is Tokyo-3, a city that's being attacked by giant creatures that seek to eradicate the human kind, called Angels. After not seeing his father for more than eight years, Shinji Ikari receives a phone call in which he is told to urgently come to the NERV Headquarters, an organization that deals with the destruction of the Angels through the use of giant mechs called Evas. Shinji's objective is to pilot the Eva Unit 01 while teaming up with the Eva Unit 00 pilot, Ayanami Rei.

    In the earliest battles against the monstrous Angels, young Eva pilots Shinji and Rei were forced to carry humanity’s hopes on their shoulders. Now, with the deadly onslaught of the Angels escalating and the apocalyptic Third Impact looming, Shinji and Rei find their burden shared by two new Eva pilots, the fiery Asuka and the mysterious Mari. Maneuvering their enormous Eva machines into combat, the four young souls fight desperately to save mankind from the heavens — but will they be able to save themselves?

    3.0 is coming out this fall!
  2. The show has always blown my mind, no matter how many times I've seen it.

    Totally recommend it to everyone although it can be slow at times and you do have to pay close attention to some things.
  3. Everything in this anime is crucial as in if you miss one part, you will be lost forever (untill you watch it again) there is an End of Evangelion movie but it is rated young adult and idk if its appropiate.
  4. This is a great starter anime matter of fact this was one of my first animes always a good classic.
  5. If The artwork wasnt so old id watch it
    (I prefer new/up to date animes, long as it has nice art)
  6. theres the movies that are still being made, the Evangelion Movies are also great (1.0),(2.0), and 3.0 is coming out this fall. its basically a rebuild. even if the artwork is out of date, its still a great storyline.
    but for you, Just watch the movies lol. the artwork is definitely better than the series.
