The first of four animated features spun off from the wildly popular television anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, written and directed by the creator and chief architect of the series, Anno, retells and reshapes the original story of Shinji, a young man living in the city of Tokyo-3, the final remnant of a leveled Japan. Shinji is recruited to pilot one the massive mechs, called Evas, that defend this last human redoubt from giant creatures dubbed Angels—a battle royale showdown that takes on an awesome new dimension on the big screen.
