Great beginning that manages to capture what made Neon Genesis Evangelion one of the most groundbreaking animes of the late 90ies: complex and believable characters and a simplistic toy concept turned into a disturbing and oftentimes horrifying reality. There are zones, mystifying monsters coming out of them and only youngsters in giant robots can battle them. As stupid as it sounds, it works. Sadly, the story is let down by not just a bad ending, but by having no ending at all. It feels like the story just stops halfway into it.
On the other hand, Evangelion itself was pretty shitty when it came to ending its story, so Moles might have tried to emulate that.
