Then the fight for Mankind's survival moves into a whole new phase as the first combat-designed Eva is prepared for battle! When the naval convoy transporting the new Eva is attacked by an Angel, the protected becomes the protector as 2nd Child Asuka Langley and Shinji activate Unit 02 for a deadly underwater duel to the death!
