In the year 2015, the Angels, huge, tremendously powerful, alien war machines, appear in Tokyo for the second time. The only hope for Mankind`s survival lies in the Evangelion, a humanoid fighting machine developed by NERV, a special United Nations agency. Capable of withstanding anything the Angels can dish out, the Evangelion`s one drawback lies in the limited number of people able to pilot them. Only a handful of teenagers, all born fourteen years ago, nine months after the Angels first appeared, are able to interface with the Evangelion. One such teenager is Shinji Ikari, whose father heads the NERV team that developed and maintains the Evangelion. Thrust into a maelstrom of battle and events that he does not understand, Shinji is forced to plumb the depths of his own inner resources for the courage and strength to not only fight, but to survive, or risk losing everything.

The first half is fairly slow and makes it kinda hard to get into. The last two episodes are also optional because you can just watch kino EoE instead.

Watch 'End of Evangelion' after the 24th episode.

Don't get put off by the first episodes if you think they're weirdly paced or whatever, this show really relies on getting to know you before you start to really like it which is exactly what it is trying to do. This show is extremely smart and uses a number of visual and audio techniques to manipulate your emotions to what it wants to get across. I don't even like anime shows but this one is pretty great.
