Neon Genesis Evangelion
year is 2015, and over half of the Earth's population is dead, victims of the
first attack by a mysterious race of beings known as the Angels. To save what
remains of Mankind, the human race must now place its trust in the mysterious
NERV agency and its awesome avatars, the giant bio-mechanical Evangelions. Humanoid
in form, these monstrous creations are the only force on Earth that can break
through the Angels' Absolute Terror Fields long enough to literally tackle the
massive invaders in bloody hand to hand combat. However, even with these technological
miracles, the odds are still stacked against Humanity, for only a handful of
teenagers are capable of piloting an Evangelion... each of whom was born exactly
nine months after the Angels' first attack. Was accelerated evolution responsible
for the providential birth of these unexpected saviors... or are there much
darker forces at work in the depths of NERV? Biblical prophecy, savage human
drama and blistering hi-tech battle action collide in a spectacular orgy of
violence and destruction in the multiple award winning NEON GENESIS EVANGELION.
Prepare to be shocked. Prepare to be enthralled. The ultimate battle for the
future of Mankind has begun.

Neon Genesis Evangelion consists of a variety of elements, seamlessly working together to bring us a story like no other anime series before it. It displays powerful portrayal of the human element, developing its characters to the point of painful recognition by the watchers. It presents to us high tech combat sequences with the physical savagery and impact of a bar-room brawl which may well decide the fate of mankind. It draws on material from popular mythology, philosophy and religion which lead us to the questions: What is the nature of evolution? What is humanity's relationship to what we call the divine? Does "God" exist? And what would it mean for the human race if we could finally answer "yes" or "no"?
Neon Genesis Evangelion is not real, it is a story. A story which will immerse you and may well leave you sitting in your chair long after its conclusion.
