Original anime cel from the psychological sci-fi drama Neon Genesis Evangelion produced by Studio Gainax and Tatsunoko Production from 1995-1996. An anime-original series directed by Hideaki Anno, the show is set fifteen years after a huge meteorite crash-landed on the Arctic. Giant alien beings known as 'Angels' emerged from the meteorite and began their rampage upon the Earth, and a military organization known as NERV constructed giant robots called 'Evangelions' or 'Evas' to fight back, piloted by adolescents. The main character is Shinji Ikari, son of the commander of NERV. Rife with philosophical commentary and religious imagery, the show is critically acclaimed for its dark deconstruction of mecha anime and examinations of the deep psychological implications of using child soldiers in a long-standing conflict, and is often placed among the most influential anime ever aired.
This set feature three cels, all taken from episode 9: 'Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!' One of the cels features Shinji Ikari piloting his Eva, another cel features Asuka Langley Soryu piloting her Eva, and a third cel features a split-image shot of both of their Evas in snychronic combat to defeat the Angel Israfel.
