The Evangelion saga from TV is artfully recounted, with some additional scenes, in part one see: "Shin Seiki Evangelion" (1995) Part two starts immediately afterward, where the NERV organization has outlived its usefulness.

Asuka, semi-comatose, is placed in her EVA for safety, while Misato and company struggle to find Shinji and Rei before they're assasinated by SEELE's forces. Written by

The perfect ending to the perfect anime, although a bit confusing
Wow! This is perhaps *the* best movie I've ever seen. The whole Evangelion 'thing' was introduced to me by my friend, thx Jadaick, and I am soooo glad he did! This movie is a constant goose bump ride for the people who have seen the series. People who haven't seen the series need not apply, you wont get a thing outta this movie, but even if you have seen the series from top to bottom be prepared to have to watch this over and over again. Not just because you want to watch it again, but because you will be so absorbed into it the first time, you will have to watch it again just to take it all in. (especially the second half) I don't want to bore you any longer but if you have about $30 and a weekend to spare, please do yourself a favor and go to your local anime store and rent Evangelion! You'll be glad you did.
