The directorial debut of Hideaki Anno, this feature-length anime combines pretty girls, giant robots and space monsters to produce an interstellar naval war epic. It is 2015 and Earth's first faster-than-light ship - the Luxion - has been lost, attacked by unidentified space monsters in the Perseus Arm. Six years later, Noriko Takaya, daughter of the Luxion's commander, enters the Okinawa Girls' Space Pilot High School, vowing to be a space pilot and follow her father's trail to the stars.
