Evangeilon - A modern classic, 16 July 2003
How does one explain Neon Genesis Evangelion(NGE).
To encapsulate the story of NGE one must of course first point out that it is far from a run of the Mecha (giant robot) story but is in fact an insight into humanity.
Set in a post apocalyptical world Ikari Shinji and his fellow pilots the mysterious Ayanami Rei and the fiery Asuka Langley Soryu battle monstrous creature the so called "Angels" using the Evangelions a creation of mans science.
As the story leads us along the path Shinji-kun has to tread we discover that the hardest battle indeed the only true battle is not with the angels but perhaps with ones own sprit.
Neon Genesis Evangelion book 3 is a worthy continuation of this epic tale but indeed I need not say this because if you have books 1 and 2 you will already have this title on your wish list.
