Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン, Shin Seiki Evangelion?) is a popular Japanese anime and manga that began in 1995. The anime was written and directed by Hideaki Anno.
Neon Genesis Evangelion consists of 26 television episodes which were first aired on the terrestrial TV Tokyo network from October 4, 1995 to March 27, 1996.
Evangelion's plot superficially revolves around the struggles by the paramilitary organization NERV to prevent the city of Tokyo-3 and the Geofront underneath it from being destroyed by monstrous beings called Angels.

To this end, NERV enlists three teenagers, Shinji Ikari (the son of NERV's commander Gendo Ikari), Rei Ayanami, and Asuka Langley Soryu, to pilot enormous mecha called Evangelions into battle against the Angels.

As the series progresses, it is revealed that the true purpose of NERV, the Evas, and the Angels is to bring about a forced evolution of humanity with potentially cataclysmic repercussions.

The struggles of the central characters to overcome their personal issues and personality conflicts factors heavily into the events of the series, and become integral to the conclusion of the series.
