Episodes 1-4. The year is 2015. As the remnants of the human race cower in subterranean cities, a deadly war is being waged for what is left of the planet. On one side are the mysterious beings known only as the Angels; on the other, the special agency NERV and mankind's last hope, the awe-inspiring Evangelions. Piloted by a special team of young warriors, these giant bio-mechanical humanoids are the only thing that can withstand the force of the Angels' defence fields long enough for the pilots to tackle the massive invaders themselves in brutal hand-to-hand combat! With the lives of every soul on the planet at stake, these few youngsters must reach deep inside themselves to find the strength and courage necessary to meet the Angels head on in a desperate attempt to save mankind.
