Synopsis

Ikari Shinji is a typical, somewhat introverted 14 year old who unwillingly gets sucked into a world spanning epos. Mysterious, though not clear whether male- or benevolently, creatures known as 'Angels' are invading earth, and Shinji has along with other children of his age to pilot the 'Evas', giant humanoid robots designed to protect humanity from Angels.

What are those Angels? What is their purpose? What are Evas and how are they related to their pilots? And above all, what are human beings, are questions this drama strives to answer.

Just trivia: The creator of Evangelion hates the two last eps and for that reason he made the films. It wasn't his vision (and he said himself that it made very little sense compared to what he wanted to express), there was just no budget and they had to somehow wrap up the show.

@d0npian0 Yeah, the new movies are a re-telling of the story, so it's kind of its own thing now. It will be interesting to see how the remakes end... they don't really count as a part of the original series anyway.
d0npian0 21 Oct, 2014
@purefault yeah, that would have been really cool! But instead they seem to be into creating many different endings. I've only seen the first two movies of the new ones by now but those are completely different, too.
purefault 20 Oct, 2014
@d0npian0 I thought it would be cool if someone did a cut to where they took the scenes from the last two episodes and mixed them into the End Of Eva, making it into one big ending.
d0npian0 18 Oct, 2014
@purefault yeah, that's what I realized, too when I finally watched it :D (although that ending also confused me a little but it at least wasn't as artistic)
purefault 17 Oct, 2014
@d0npian0 "The End Of Eva" will give you a much, much more vivid view of what fully happens at the end ;)
d0npian0 23 Jul, 2014
I rewatched this for the first time in ages, and I'm still not really satisfied with the last two episodes.
I mean, I understand that the ending does makes sense in a way, because the whole show was never really about giant robots fighting giant monsters, but about the effects of emotional distress. But still, they only repeated all the issues Shinji, Rei, Asuka and Misato had and didn't conclude anything.

I haven't seen any of the movies yet, so I hope that they won't just be even more vague.
