Contents: *Introduction *AGE OF INNOCENT Ayanami Rei, Shoyu Asuka Kangley, Horaki Hikari *PRISONER Katsuragi Misato, Akagi Ritsuko, Ibuki Maya *FIGURE STYLE *DESIGN WORKS . . . The Evangelion story begins by introducing us to Shinji Ikari, a young boy abandoned by his father, who is waiting for a woman, Misato Katsuragi, who will take him to meet his father. Gendo Ikari, Shinji's dad, has formed a group called NERV, which under the control of the global conglomerate SEELE fights the "Angels". Fifteen years ago in the year 2000 the Second Impact occurred leaving half the Earth flooded underwater as the Polar ice caps melted. The cause: the Angels. Now fifteen years later they have resurfaced and Shinji is one of the select children who can pilot a huge robot, called an EVA, to combat the Angels. Sounds like your basic robot anime right? Wrong. As the story unfolds we find out that only children born after the Second Impact can pilot EVAs. Why? The EVA's also bear a strange resemblance to the Angels. Why? But we also get to know the group of characters we are introduced to and wonder why they are the way they are. But as each question is seemingly answered we are thrown even more questions. Slowly the series develops into a psychological drama, where nothing is what it seems to be and we learn what we have to live for. However, the enthralling story is not the only asset of Neon Genesis Evangelion. The characters possess a searing realism, unheard of in North American television and we begin to care about each one by the time the first half of the series is over. Though we hate some of the characters during their introduction by the end of this epic manga we begin to feel pity for them as we see how they have become the people they are. Rei, is a quiet child whose pain is unknown even to her. Asuka is the brash capable showoff whose own heart would guide her to happiness if she'd only listen. Shinji is the lonely boy who wallows in the nothingness of his existence. Misato is the beautiful commander who can't seem to escape her past. Gendo and Ristuko share a connected history which both damns and redeems them. When EVA first began, one of it's claims to fame was its animation and in my opinion the excellent mech designs. As the series progresses the animation stays excellent and we begin to see just how well done the designs really are. Patience is a key in this series, not because of pacing, but because the biggest pay off is at the end of the story when we see how it all ends. We keep being surprised in each volume but none of it compares to the feeling one has after reading this series completely [including the fantastic side stories]. It feels like you've grown as a person and as a human being. Stick through the whole series and I'll guarantee this: it will make you consider things about your life you may not have looked at, like your raison d'etre. Overall Neon Genesis Evangelion is a must see for any human being whether you are an anime/manga fan or not. The sheer depth of this series makes it so enthralling and addictive that you cannot help but be drawn into the world of Tokyo 3 and its characters. Their pain is yours. Everytime they triumph you can feel it. Though the first half of the series is a bit light hearted it is the second half where this story starts to shine. Few pieces of literature, with the exception of Shakespeares finest like "Macbeth", can compare. In fact creator Hiddeaki Anno may have taken a cue from the bard for one of his famous quotes in King Lear sums up the series: "Our faults lie not the stars, but in ourselves".
