The fifth volume of a digitally remastered edition of the Japanese anime classic. Set in the year 2015, the human race has retreated into vast underground cities after the invasion of the dreaded 'Angels', a race of alien creatures. Earth responds by forming the NERV agency, which creates the Evangelions - giant biomechanical weapons that can only be piloted by children. 14 year old Shinji Ikari (Megumi Ogata) is summoned against his will by his father to Neo-Tokyo 3 to take up the controls of one of the Evangelion weapons and lead the fight against the Angels. In this volume, the new Eva machine goes out of control, and Shinji is left to face it alone. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly clear to the team that the Evas are far more than just machines.
