Summary of Event: “Ligare of Demise and a New World”
In the world of gods and humans, Asgard and Midgard, a giant life form known as an Angel appears. Attempts to vanquish the Angel are met by an invisible wall that blocks all attacks. The omnipotent god-king Odin senses the coming of Ragnarok and orders his subordinates to investigate the situation. Children who pilot “Evangelions” are found within a deep crater. To prevent the end of the worlds and return the children to their original dimension, the 5 pilots and the gods join hands to take down a common enemy.
