> In the very near future, a race of huge, insect like aliens is discovered traveling the galaxy. These aliens seem dedicated to the eradication of the human species as it takes its first steps away from the solar system, and they are getting closer and closer to Earth. Humanity has responded by developing spacegoing battleships and giant fighting robots (original idea there). These robots are piloted by the best and brightest of Earth's youth, picked from training schools around the world.
> The story begins in the year 2023, not long after the first battles with the aliens, and centers on young Takaya Noriko.

Encoded from the JP BD with English subtitles from KAA and Revo. Single Audio: Japanese [2006 Re-recording] (5.1 Dolby TrueHD), Japanese [Original Mix] (Stereo FLAC). Also includes untranslated cast commentary for episodes 1-6. Also includes 3 specials, and 8 science lessons (4 from 1988, 2 from 1994, and 2 from 2012). Unfortunately, I am not aware of anyone that has translated the science lessons from 2012 (the rest are fully translated). For those not familiar, the 6th episodes is presented 4:3 aspect ratio with letterboxed widescreen in black and white as it was originally released because Hideaki Anno is an auteur. There is also an alternate version of the episode included without the letterbox crop.
**Difference for V2: Added the Original Stereo Mix to episodes 1-6**
I would appreciate any help seeding.
