A dazzling sci-fi spectacle about kids in robots fighting their parents and the cruel, unloving world that they’ve inherited – will go great with the best popcorn in town! Get in the robot with us. It’ll be fine.

"An alternative ending to "Neon Genesis Evangelion." SEELE plans an attack on NERV after failing to create a Third Impact. Asuka returns and begins the counterattack, as new enemies descend from the heavens. What does it mean to complete a human heart?" - GKids

"Perhaps one of the most fatalistic, avant garde, and oddly enough, life-affirming endings to an anime series ever produced. In short, it is the best and worst of everything that is Evangelion combined to create a film that is unlike anything that had come before it. Despite its unrelenting darkness, End of Evangelion remains true to the ethos of its subtitle, that the joy of death is in the act of rebirth." - Paste Magazine

‘Naro Minded’ Screening Series, free public screenings of cult favorites and new releases presented by Naro Video @ ODU Libraries.
