In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Wow, this movie threw me for a loop. It was really good and it made you think alot. My fiancee had to explain it to me because I was getting so confused at one point. Interesting storyline, since I don't want to give away anything to those who haven't watched it. I'd just have to say watch it, because this is one anime that I can't really give a description for. All in all I give it a 10. ^__^ read more
