Fallen Angels. Shattered Dreams.

Asuka's trauma leaves her helpless in the face of the latest Angel attack, and Rei must make a terrible sacrifice in order to save NERV once more. Even as the survivors sift through the wreckage of their lives in a desparate bid to come to terms with the horrible consequences of the latest battle, a guilt-ridden Ritsuko summons Shinji and Misato to a secret chamber for an even more startling revelation! In the deadly calm of the aftermath, the sudden and unexpected arrival of the Fifth Child hits like a hurricane, leaving Shinji at the eye of a whirlwind of activity as he finds a kindred soul in the unearthly Nagisa Kaoru... But does Kaoru really have a soul at all? A battle to the death following the shocking conclusion of NEON GENESIS EVANGELION Genesis 0:12!
