A difference in power of 1 to 5

The last Angel is dead.

The Angel's name was Kaworu Nagisa --

The first person to ever tell Shinji that he liked him, and the first person to whom Shinji ever opened up his heart. Having killed Kaworu by his own hand, Shinji closed his heart once again and implored Asuka to help him. Asuka - the spirited young girl who had always made fun of him. But Asuka's pride had been shattered, and she did not respond. On the other hand, the death of the last Angel meant the completion of SEELE's scenario. To artificially evolve humankind which had reached its limit as a colony of flawed and separate entities into a perfect single being -- that was the true meaning of the Instrumentality Project (HCP), and was also synonymous with Third Impact.

As the Promised Time neared, SEELE mobilizes the MAGI type computers around the world to hack into NERV's original MAGI system. The aim was the occupation of NERV HQ through the take-over of MAGI. To deal with this threat, NERV reinstates Dr. Ritsuko Akagi. Misato could hardly believe that the woman abandoned by Gendou Ikari would willingly cooperate with NERV again. At any rate, by reinstating Ritsuko, MAGI is able to successfully evade the threat of occupation. However, this was merely the first skirmish. SEELE then committed the JSSDF in an attempt to directly capture the two Eva units. Gunfire and screams, blood and the smell of gunpowder smoke. New Tokyo-3, which had been named the fortress of humankind, became a battlefield where humans now fought each other. However, the prowess of the military -- of professional slaughterers -- far outstripped that of NERV. Enemy forces committed one after another, NERV personnel falling one after another, barricades being breached -- the reports entering the Command Center were hopeless. Misato has Asuka placed in EVA-02, and then goes in search of Shinji. The only hope for a reversal -- the only hope to survive -- being in Shinji's EVA-01 destroying all nine remaining Eva series units.

On the other hand, Gendou leaves Fuyutsuki in command, and goes to Terminal Dogma together with Rei Ayanami. What does Gendou plan in the midst of this hopeless situation? What will SEELE's scenario bring to pass? Is there a future for Asuka, lying curled up like an unborn child inside the unmoving EVA-02? What runs through Ritsuko's head as she smiles coldly inside MAGI? And Misato dashing through the battlefield that was once NERV HQ -- will she make it in time? The clashing of various people's wills amidst a complex battle resembles a council that will decide humanity's future. Evolution and death, stagnation and birth, truth and lies -- and the future chosen by humankind?

The key to this future is in the hands of Shinji, who cowers trembling in a corner of the battlefield....
