Wouldn’t it be better if everyone would just die…?
The war between humans and angels is over. The remaining teenage pilots of the massive mecha that saved humanity – the Evangelions – rest warily at home in Tokyo-3. As the emotionally shredded and physically shattered pilots attempt cobble their lives back together, a former ally stages a violent coup that threatens to bring an end to all life on Earth.
The theatrical finale to Hideaki Anno’s crossover sensation, Neon Genesis Evangelion, The End of Evangelion is an ambitious and often troubling conclusion that explores themes of abandonment, singularity, and adolescent sexuality. This ain’t your daddy’s apocalypse.
Part of Nitehawk’s November ANIME AFTER DARK 2 midnite series.
