Part two of the four part Japanese anime

Trouble continues in Hideaki Anno's anime, a sequel to Evangelion 1.0. A post-apocalyptic Tokyo is still under attack from powerful "angels," which can be defeated (just barely) only by EVAs, gigantic robot warriors piloted by teens. Besides battling these invaders, the youngsters also fight with tricky feelings – daddy issues, new crushes, unspeakably mysterious pasts. While there's plenty of action, the film also finds time to reflect on ideas both macro (the ecological damage wrought by war) and micro (what cost personal honor?) This is part two of a four-film series, itself adapting a popular 1990s Japanese TV show. Having seen part one, or having familiarity with the source material, is strongly recommended. 10 p.m. Fri., March 11, and 10 pm. Sat., March 12. Oaks
