End of Evangelion (Shin seiki Evangelion Gekijō-ban) was released in 1997. It is a full-length animated film that was created in order to give a different ending to the anime series known as Neon Genesis Evangelion. The fans of the series were upset at the way the anime ended, so a movie was created in order to make the fans happy, and to give them closure to the series. The movie has two parts to it, one is called Episode 25: Air and the other is Episode 26: My Purest Heart For You.
The original series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, is about a post apocalyptic world, in which a shy boy, named Shinji Ikari, winds up being one of the only people left to pilot a huge, mechanical monster known as an Angel. In Episode 25, the team is once again trying to save themselves, and the world; this time for the final time. Shinji finds himself put into the role of hero, once again, which is a role he is extremely uncomfortable with. The city they live in, Tokyo-3, winds up becoming devastated, and members of the team end up dying in the line of duty.
In Episode 26, Shinji is forced to face reality, due to the many deaths of his team. Devastation continues to plague those who would save the world, and more people wind up dying. Shinji ends up, alone, with Asuka, a woman whom he has been obsessing over, but hates.
Gendo Ikari – Gendo is the father of Shinji. He is the creator of the Eva’s, which is the only thing that can save the world.
