NEON GENESIS EVANGELION
WARNING: CONTAINS MILD SPOILERS...
Note: If you ever hear of GEHIRN, that is the old name for NERV.
The best, most complex
anime ever created. It consists of 26 episodes and two movies ("End of Evangelion" and "Death and Rebirth").
understand the series, you need
watched The End Of Evangelion before the last two episodes, which are extremely confusing; lots of images
and ideas thrown
at you all at once, whilst
the movie breaks them
up and helps you to understand.
In the year
2000 the "Second impact" occured, melting the polar ice caps and putting much of the worlds land under sea. As much as half of the worlds population was killed in this event. The dinosaurs
out in the same way, but the event was much bigger, this was the "First impact".
Now the organisation "NERV
" is created, by another, (SEELE), to keep
a strange race, which
named the "angels", from causing a "Third impact". NERV
created a huge bio-mech
called an Evangelion to protect Earth, as conventional weapons are no use against the Angels.
The "pilots" of Evangelion all have to be born after the second
impact, which makes them all 14 years old, these are: Shinji Ikari
and Rei Ayanami
. The pilots sit inside the Evangelion
and "Sync" with it, for example, if the Evangelion
is hurt, so is the pilot, but this proves
to be an effective method of controlling the Eva.
Impacts are caused by an Angel joining
with the original
angel, "Adam". The second impact was only small because
Adam was in an embryonic
caused my SEELE.
The evangelions are a living thing, and must have a soul. This is very confusing, but I believe
that Shinji's mother's soul is in Evangelion
Unit 01, Asuka's Mother's in Unit 02 and some part of Rei's conciousness in Unit 00.
This basically concludes the story. Everybody should
watch this series, it makes a creepy kind of sense.
We are all seperate because
we need each other to live, we reject each other, we use sadness to exist, if we were all dead, harmony would reign, and we would become our original
self. You see this original
self in the End Of Evangelion
Note that there are a lot of hidden meanings in this series, see if you can find
them all ^_^...
