Evangelion Store in Tokyo

My favorite animation series is Evangelion. Is a series created by Hideaki Anno and it is about who some teenagers try to protect the mankind by fighting inside of a huge-sized bionic robots. It explores topics such as dystopia, philosophy, human psychology and religion. The story happens in during year 2015. In my opinion this series is very interesting and I would recommend watching it to anyone. The full series is 26 episodes (broadcasted in 1995 and 1996 for the first time) and the story ends with two movies. Also, in 2007 a new interpretation of the series consisting on 4 films called Rebuild of Evangelion was started to be screened on cinemas.

In Tokyo there is a store about this series. It is in the Harajuku district, near the famous Takeshita Street. You can check its official website.

Shinji Ikari is the main character of the series. He is a shy boy but he has nice attributes. During the series, he asks himself who he really is and what is his place in life, in case there is any. He is the pilot of Evangelion unit 01.

Rei Ayanami is one of my favorite characters from this series and one of the most recognized characters in the world from Japanese animation. She is an extremely silent girl and she represent the emotional void. She is the pilot of Evangelion unit 00.

Kaworu Nagisa is a very special character and he appears late during the series. He meets Shinji and shows himself as a very friendly person that gives a new point of the view to the story.
