This Movie Is About.
Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. (Japanese: ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版: 序, Hepburn: Evangerion Shin Gekijōban: Jo, lit. "Evangelion: The New Movie: Prelude") is a 2007 Japanese animated science fiction action film, written and chiefly directed by Hideaki Anno. It is the first of the four installments that compose the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy, based on the anime television series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The story, set in the futuristic city of Tokyo-3 fifteen years after a planetary catastrophe known as Second Impact, focuses on the story of Shinji Ikari, a boy who is recruited by the special agency Nerv to pilot a giant mecha known as Eva and fight, along with other pilots, against mysterious beings named Angels. For the film was called the same cast of voice actors of the original series, including Megumi Ogata, Kotono Mitsuishi and Megumi Hayashibara.At the beginning of the production, Evangelion 1.0 should have been the first installment of a trilogy remake of the classic series with about one hundred and fifty new cuts; during the process, however, the staff could not reuse the original drawings of this one and had to do all the work from scratch. As the production went on, the project began to deviate from the original series, introducing several differences to the plot and characterization of the characters. Hideaki Anno was joined in the direction by Kazuya Tsurumaki and Masayuki, already assistant directors of the series, while the storyboards were handled by Shinji Higuchi and Tomoki Kyoda. The movie, which retraces the plot of the first six episodes of the series, enjoyed a positive reception in Japan, grossing about two billion yen and generating considerable revenue for the home video market. Abroad, Evangelion 1.0 received a more polarized reception, although generally positive; critics described it as too derivative of the classic series or that it cut important details, while others praised its direction, soundtrack and plot, with particular attention to the CGI graphics. The feature film also won accolades, being awarded, among others, at the Animation Kobe and Tokyo International Anime Fair.
