In 2015, fifteen years after a global cataclysm known as the Second Impact, teenager Shinji Ikari is summoned to the futuristic city of Tokyo-3 by his estranged father Gendo Ikari, director of the special paramilitary force Nerv. Shinji witnesses United Nations forces battling an Angel, one of a race of giant monstrous beings whose awakening was foretold by the Dead Sea Scrolls. Because of the Angels' near-impenetrable force-fields, Nerv's giant Evangelion bio-machines, synchronized to the nervous systems of their pilots and possessing their own force-fields, are the only weapons capable of keeping the Angels from annihilating humanity.
I should probaly start this review by saying Neon Genesis Evangelion is my favorite anime of all time, and this will never change. Never have I ever seen an anime with such beauty, such realistic character development, and such suspense. It takes a bit to get going, but once it gets going, it never seems to slow down, episode after episode it delivers satisfying story arcs, and while it has some episodes not as good as the rest, it doesnt have a single episode that I actually hate or dislike. The original ending to the series may have been a disappointment, but to me, both End Of Evangelion and the original Neon Genesis Evangelion endings work. This anime is a 10/10, and has since been the only anime to receive such a rating.
