In the year 2015, half of the human race is dead, and the survivors face extinction at the hands of giant biotechnology experiments called Angels.

Shinji Ikari, whose father heads the NERV team that developed and maintains the Evangelions, is thrust into a maelstrom of battles and events that he does not understand. He is forced to plumb the depths of himself for the courage and strength to not only fight, but to survive…
With Weta on board for effects, I think I might “Weta” my pants. God damn that was a terrible joke.
