Fourteen years after the Third Impact, the Earth is a post-apocalyptic wasteland, human civilization is in ruins, and the people Shinji knows are almost unrecognizable. Trapped inside Evangelion Unit-01, he is recovered from space by Asuka and Mari, only to find himself a prisoner of Wille, a military faction led by his former guardian Misato Katsuragi. Cold and bitter, his former allies view him with suspicion and refuse to support him as he comes to terms with the consequences of his actions.

A hurt and confused Shinji is rescued from Wille by Rei and returned to Nerv headquarters. There, he meets and quickly befriends the enigmatic Kaworu Nagisa, who offers him warmth and insight into the state of Nerv’s war with the Angels. But Shinji and Kaworu’s brief respite lies on the eve of a new battle, one in which Shinji finds that his enemies are no longer Angels but former comrades. In this bitter confrontation to determine the future of the world, Shinji will learn first-hand that the past truly cannot be undone. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

The film won the Award of Excellence in the animation category at the 17th Japan Media Arts Festival.



Evangelion 3.0 is another good movie from the Evangelion franchise. What I loved about the movie is that Mari got more screen time Yay~ jk

The story took place 14 years after the ending of the second movie. The transformation and change was really good. The Sci-fi was more intense in this movie. Shin was as stupid as ever. Asuka and Mari put up great fights. I didn’t understand what Nagisa’s role was in the movie. That’s one of the down sides. The other downside is that I didn’t understand what the ending wanted to convey…

The message was not clear. Nevertheless the movie was amazing.

Overall Rate: 9/10
