As this popular sci-fi drama continues to unfold, 14-year-old Shinji Ikari, the pilot of warrior-robot Evangelion 01, begins to emerge from his shell. He's traumatized in a skirmish with an octahedral flying fortress, but Misato sends him right back into battle. Rei plays defensive blocker in her Evangelion as Misato diverts all the electric power in Japan to the untested cannon Shinji uses to destroy the fortress. (They'd never manage it in California.) Shinji begins to recognize his feelings for the taciturn Rei and the garrulous Misato. He also learns his textbooks lie: the devastation of the Earth was caused not by a meteor strike, but by the explosion of an Angel that human explorers discovered in Antarctica. Complications ensue with the arrival of the third pilot, Asuka Sohryu, a temperamental redhead who quarrels with everyone in sight. She and Shinji are forced to work as a team, piloting Evangelion 03 in an unexpected sea battle with a sharklike Angel. But Shinji and his friends face even graver danger from the plots of his scientist-father and the dashing agent Ryoji Kaji. Director Hideaki Anno continues to develop his main characters while keeping the plots and subplots moving smoothly ahead. Contains these episodes: 5. "Rei, Beyond Her Heart," 6. "Showdown in Tokyo 3," 7. "The Human Creation," 8. "Asuka Strikes." Not rated; suitable for ages 14 and up: robot versus robot violence, brief nudity, and minor profanity. --Charles Solomon

The English voices were cast appropriately for the characters, however the English voice acting for the most part is just plain *horrid* and the translation is often weak. Read morePublished on December 5, 2002 by cK70
