Up there with Akira
NEON GENESIS EVANGELION is arguably one of the best, and certainly one of the most popular, anime series ever produced. Set in the 21st century, the futuristic sci-fi series takes place 15 years after a meteorite crashes into Antarctica and wipes out half the Earth's population, leaving the other half to contend with rising sea levels and other natural phenomena. Chief among the mysteries is the arrival of the Angels, an alien race who are possibly responsible for the subsequent attacks on Tokyo. Humanity's only hope for survival is a powerful robot warrior created by the NERV organization and piloted by a group of genius teenagers. Compelling and provocative, the mecha anime is presented in its entirety with this collection of episodes.
Neon Genesis Evangelion is the story of a reluctant young hero, called upon to pilot an immense robotic weapon in battle against alien invaders in the year 2015. As the remnants of the human race cower in subterranean cities, a deadly war is being waged on what is left of the planet. On one side are the mysterious beings known as Angels; on the other, the special agency NERV and mankind's last hope, the awe-inspiring Evangelions.
