The birth of the NGE movie (Neon Genesis Evangelion) is one of the greatest milestones of the anime. NGE was formed and born with the combination of science fiction, psychology and religion. The film is considered as the holy grail for anime fans. This is a revolution for a genre of film, the film faithfully depicts the relationship between man and machine.
For everyone to understand this genre of film, this is also known as “Mecha” and the main element of the genre is of course: Robots. After the era of Kaiju in 1950, the era of giant robots started in the 1960s and 1970s like “Mazinger Z” and “Gundam” … Everyone is familiar with Gundam, probably. Gundam set the stage for later mecha such as “Volt Voltron”, “The Transformers” and also NGE (born 1995).
The movie starts in a post-apocalyptic setting, and is being attacked by creatures with destructive powers called “Angels” whose angels originate from Adam and Lilith. To defeat those powerful creatures, the power of weapons such as guns, rockets … is not enough because surrounding those creatures is a barrier (AT-Field “Absolute Terror Field”) reads the name. understand how stretch it is and the fact that this is also a term to refer to psychological symptoms … Since those organisms are almost invincible, scientists have created giant machines that can Connected with humans called Evangelions or EVAs, these machines connect only a few selected children and this is also based on their particular origins as well as the psychology of those kids and the disgust here. Every injury on EVA affects the driver directly. These children include Shinji, Rei, Asuka, Kaworu….

She is the complete opposite of Shinji, she is not like Shinji hiding her emotions inside her heart but instead expressing her feelings through her attitude, face and imposing her own point of view on everyone. people around her. She has a colorful personality and always acts independently, ready to speak up without hesitation.
