This Evangelion wears Type-B Gear that is mostly purple with green stripes and black details. Paired with a unique helmet, the gear conceals its identity and limits its power.
The Nanoblock set in this review is the Evangelion Nanoblock CN-05.

Finished watching the Neon Genesis Evangelion series today. All that’s left is the movies and then rewatching the final film. It’ll be interesting to watch Thrice Upon a Time with a different perspective pic.twitter.com/VEL1tZ159C

The series follows a teenage boy named Shinji, who is recruited to join the organization Nerv by his father, Gendo. Shinji uses a giant bio-machine mecha known as Evangelion to battle entities known as Angels.
Neon Genesis Evangelion was very popular because it featured well-known anime tropes that were modified to fit the series. The tropes included giant robots, giant monsters, various character types and epic battles.
In addition, the series was also popular because of the original storylines and plot twists.

The Nanoblock Evangelion set is based at level three because it is not too easy or too hard, and it is designed for builders ages 12 and older. It only took us about 30 minutes to finish this set.
