The first test of the new Eva unit ends in disaster! As the giant bio-humanoid runs out of control, both Asuka and Rei fail to stop it, leaving, Shinji to face the berserk monster alone… but will his compassion for the fellow child trapped inside the monster become his undoing? As Gendo unleashes the monstrous power of Unit 01’s dummy plug, it becomes horribly apparent that the Evas are far more than just machines. The truth behind the sinister mask of the Eva is revealed.
