Watch the first nine minutes of Evangelion 1.0


It's less than a week until Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone is released, but who can wait that long? If the 17th sounds too far away, and you need some You Are (Not) Alone goodness now, there is an option. We've got the first nine minutes of it waiting for you after the jump.

It's from the same production team as Neon Genesis Evangelion and FUNimation sounds pretty proud to have it. The company gives this synopsis of the film: "EVANGELION 1.0: YOU ARE (NOT) ALONE  is a futuristic tale which tells the story of schoolboy Shinji Ikari as he is summoned by his estranged father to the vast city of Tokyo-3.

The tearful reunion he was hoping for does not materialize as his father has a far more nefarious reason for wanting his son by his side again. Led down into the underground labyrinth of NERV headquarters, he learns that he is one of only a few children that can pilot one of the enormous Evangelion robots against a terrifying enemy. Tokyo-3 is under attack from the terrifying Angels, creatures of an unknown origin bent on laying waste to anything they find. However, there are greater forces at work behind the scenes, and is the true enemy the angels, NERV, the mysterious SEELE, or the demons held within the hearts of the people involved?"

I know nine minutes isn't long, but hopefully it can tide you over until the 17th. And if that can't, how about some Evangelion pics in conjunction with Idol day?
