Humanity’s last hope lies in the hands of NERV, a special agency sanctioned under the United Nations, and their Evangelions, giant machines that are capable of defeating the Angels who herald Earth’s ruin. Gendou Ikari, head of the organization, seeks talented and compatible pilots who can synchronize with the Evangelions, and bring forward their true and powerful potential.”
