Following NERV's failed attempt to retrieve the Spears of Longinus and carry out the Human Instrumentality Project, the destruction caused by the Fourth Impact has been largely averted. In a state of disarray, Shinji Ikari, Asuka Langley Shikinami, and Rei Ayanami travel to Village 3—a survivor settlement free from Earth's ruination. There, Shinji slowly comes to terms with his past, developing an entirely different life from his days as an Evangelion pilot.

Meanwhile, NERV makes preparations to continue the Instrumentality Project by means of a new Impact. When WILLE's main aerial battleship arrives at the village, Shinji decides to board, believing that he can help by piloting an Evangelion. As new secrets are uncovered and a battle between WILLE and NERV approaches, the future of Earth hangs in the balance. Can Shinji save humanity and the rest of the world one last time?

If there's just one simple way to describe Evangelion 3.0+1.0, it is that the final movie of the Rebuild tetralogy is one heck of an "optimistic mess". I'll try to give brief thoughts as I go, but I'm sure this will devolve into a jumbled mess as well.

The Rebuild tetralogy was billed as a way for newcomers to the Evangelion series to experience what many of us did with the original NGE series and End of Evangelion. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Rebuild series can only be holistically understood with its predecessors. What's even worse is that one particular character introduced in ...
