Another series for mecha and "Mind Screw" anime. Very depressing and VERY VERY deep. You may have to watch this one a few times to get it all.
The earth is under attack by giant monsters called "angels" the only thing mankind has that can even hurt these creatures are the Eva units. And guess what they can only be driven by teenagers! Enter Shinji Ikari the main character of the story, will he pilot an eva against these monsters? Or will he turn and run? Better watch to find out!
