After defeating multiple hostile aliens known as Angels, Shinji Ikari, the young pilot of the Evangelion series of giant humanoid robots has finally begun to settle into his new life living with his commanding officer Misato Katsuragi in the fortress city of Toyko-3. However the threat from the Angels has yet to cease and new pilots arrive to damage the status quo and Shinji’s unstable psyche. Will the unstable alliance between child pilots and their adult comrades be enough to fend of the attackers, or will the fragile alliances forged between the different human factions crumble under the pressure of their individual agendas?
As many of you may already know, the Rebuild of Evangelion series of films were designed to encompass four films. The first three films are essentially a re-telling of the original 26 episode series with the fourth film being a new ending to the story. While this is essentially true, whereas the first film followed the series faithfully, the second film differs wildly from the norm to include a new character and several scenes that have been added to allow for greater examination of the interactions between the main protagonists.
