Neon Genesis Evangelion is a 1995 anime series directed by Hideaki Anno.

Plot

It's 2015, decades after a cataclysm called Second Impact almost destroyed humanity, and beings called Angels are returning to attack Earth. An agency called NERV, commanded by Gendo Ikari, has created mechas called "Evangelion" to defeat these Angels.

14 year old Shinji Ikari is chosen by his father to pilot Evangelion Unit 01. Rei Ayanami and Asuka Langley Soryu are also chosen to pilot these machines. Shinji and his friends must try to save humanity. As the series progresses, many secrets about the Evangelions, Angels and NERV are revealed.
