In the year 2000 a giant meteor crashed in the middle of the Antarctic. This was known as the Second Impact. (The meteor that killed the dinosaurs was the First Impact.) A strange being was found, which was called ADAM. The race of these beings was called "Angels" by the humans. ADAM detonated soon after humans found it, in the year 2000, and it destroyed Antarctica, causing the ice cap of Antarctica to melt. The newly melted water flooded almost the entire planet. Half of the population of humans on Earth was wiped out.
Then the Angels left Earth for 15 years. During those 15 years the United Nations formed a top secret project called "NERV." NERV was the organisation which created the EVAs to protect mankind.
Thus begins the story of Evangelion.
