In a world invaded by giant beings called “Angels,” Fourteen year old Shinji Ikari is summoned by his father to pilot the giant mecha, EVA01. While constantly questioning his ability to save the world and take on each new mission, Shinji slowly discovers his father’s real intentions and the many mysteries surrounding him.
So this is the legendary Evangelion… I wasn’t too thrilled about it. Different storyline from most other mecha series of its time and definitely took realism into its designs and storyline. I just prefer the Gundam series for some reason… Oh yeah and crappy “easy-way-out” kind of ending no? Make it all a dream why don’t you… Almost incomplete and made all the build-up go nowhere. The “Director’s Edition” Ending was the result of death threats to him by the fans. I will consider the original ending as his true intention always, thus the series loses points for that crappy ending. -_-
The new Evangelion 1.0,2.0,3.0 are MUCH better paced and make the characters much more bearable to the point where I like Asuka’s character now.
