Introducing the recommended Japanese anime “Neon Genesis Evangelion”



The story begins when a lonely boy, Shinji Ikari, is called by his father and visits New Tokyo City.
A gigantic, unidentified creature appears in front of Shinji, who is waiting to greet him without being informed.
It was an entity called “Apostle”, and it was an unknown creature that attacked humanity.

The person who came to pick Shinji up was a beautiful woman named Misato Katsuragi.

She is an employee of a secret organization called “Nerv,” a secret agency dedicated to annihilating the Apostles, and Shinji was summoned by her father to be a fighter against the Apostles.
Shinji is brought to Cage 7, deep inside Nerv, by an adult he doesn’t know.

Waiting there was his father, Gendo Ikari, and Evangelion.

The mission given to Shinji by his father is to ride an Eva and annihilate the “Apostle” who was destroying the city earlier.
Shinji panics over the sudden mission and refuses to board the Eva.

There, Gendo calls for another injured pilot, Rei Ayanami.
When Shinji sees a girl who cannot stand on her own trying to board the Eva, he finally decides to fight on board the Eva.

recommended points

This work is full of charm that other robot-based genres lack, such as the psychological depiction of the characters and the storyline that sprinkles various foreshadowing without revealing the full details of the organization and plans.
