It is the year 2015, fifteen years after the Second Impact, a terrible calamity that destroyed Antarctica, threw the Earth off its axis, caused irreparable ecological damage, and wiped out half of the human population. Now, mysterious aliens codenamed "Angels" have appeared, seemingly ready to finish humanity once and for all.
Within the headquarters of the secretive organization NERV, a special United Nations agency located in Petrograd-2, a handful of teenagers are trained to pilot the colossal bio-mechanical constructs known as Evangelions and battle the Angels on their own terms...no matter the cost to their minds and souls.
It's Neon Genesis Evangelion...with Russians! Many of the events remain the same, although the locations have changed from Japan to Russia and parts of Europe. Gendo Ikari, his son Shinji, Ritsuko Akagi, Rei Ayanami, and Misato Katsuragi are much as they ever were, but the rest of the supporting characters are locals.
