As our last podcast of 2008, we decided to review a show that touched many anime fans: Neon Genesis Evangelion. The story takes place fifteen years after a research facility in Antarctica exploded causing the icecaps to melt. Much of the world’s population is gone. In the year 2015, strange monsters known as Angels begin attacking Tokyo-3. A 14 year old boy name Shinji Ikari is recruited by an organization called Nerv in order to pilot the EVA mecha. This review covers the Neon Genesis Evangelion tv show and the End of Evangelion movie.
