Running Time: 98 minutes
Director: Anno Hideaki

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone is the first installment of the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy, a theatrical remake of the original television series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The film is largely an adaptation of episodes 1 through 6 of the series. While most events are portrayed exactly the same (albeit redrawn), there are some differences. Most notably, the Angel Ramiel (now the sixth Angel) and the fight against it, has been completely redesigned.

Just as the series, the film begins with the arrival of Shinji Ikari in Tokyo-3 at the request of his estranged father Gendo Ikari, the Commander of NERV. Shinji then finds himself in a crossfire between the U.N. army and the Angel Sachiel (now the fourth Angel). After being rescued by Lieutenant Colonel Misato Katsuragi, Shinji is brought to NERV Headquarters, where he is guilted by his father into piloting Evangelion Unit-01 against Sachiel. Following the battle, Shinji is taken in by Misato as her new housemate, and is enrolled in middle school. The film then focuses on Shinji's attempts to settle in while continuing to defend Tokyo-3 and the world from the Angels.

Evangelion ScreenshotFollowing the climactic battle against the Angel Ramiel, the film concludes with a naked Kaworu Nagisa as he is awakened by SEELE on the barren surface of the Moon. He engages in a brief, cryptic conversation with a SEELE monolith, saying 'the third one' has not changed and that he looks forward to meeting Shinji.

Kaworu's coffin is flanked on each side by four open tombs on the left and four unopened tombs on the right. In front of him he finds a white giant resembling Lilith with the purple SEELE 'Seven-eyes-of-God' mask as seen in the original series. The giant is surrounded by construction and scaffolding.
