Neon Genesis Evangelion: Season 1 episodes (13)

1 Angel Attack
Upon arriving in Tokyo-3, young Shinji Ikari is met with a desperate battle
between a horrific Angel and the United Nations army. He heads to the
headquarters of the paramilitary organization NERV and reunites with his father
Gendo, who tasks him with exterminating the Angel.
2 The Beast
"Having piloted Eva-01, Shinji survives the fierce battle with the Angel and is
taken in by Misato. An unknown city with unknown people. Even the ceiling he
stares at in Misato’s apartment is unknown to him. Shinji is racked with
memories of the desperate fight against the Angel."
3 A Transfer
Shinji is unable to make friends after transferring into his new school. He is
confronted by Toji, whose sister was injured in a battle between an Angel and
an EVA. No one understands how Shinji feels. At that moment, a siren alerting
the approach of a new Angel echoes through the skies of Tokyo-3.
4 Hedgehog's Dilemma
Shinji leaves Misato’s apartment and wanders the streets of Tokyo-3. He finds a
moment of brief respite with his classmate Kensuke, but the next morning he is
taken in by the adults from NERV. He is then met with the harshness of reality
and a cold attitude from Misato.
5 Rei I
Young Rei Ayanami shows no emotion and avoids contact with others. Shinji
attempts to approach her, as she has a closer relationship with his father than
he ever had. But she shows no indication of opening her heart to him.
Meanwhile, an Angel approaches Tokyo-3.
6 Rei II
Shinji is on the brink of death after taking a direct attack from the Fifth Angel’s
particle beam. Meanwhile, Misato devises Operation Yashima to defeat the
Angel by harnessing all of Japan’s electricity. This is the beginning of a battle
they have a mere 8.7% chance of winning.
7 A Human Work
To compete with NERV’s EVA, Japan Heavy Chemical Industry constructs J.A.
(JET ALONE). However, J.A. goes berserk during its product demonstration.
Now J.A.'s nuclear reactor is in danger of going into meltdown. Misato boards J.
A. herself and attempts to input the program deletion password, but…
8 Asuka Strikes!
Misato and Shinji head to the Pacific Fleet, which is transporting EVA-02 and
meet the Second Children, Asuka Langley Soryu, and Misato’s ex-boyfriend,
Ryoji Kaji. The strong-willed Asuka sees Shinji as a rival but then the Sixth Angel
attacks. Asuka boards EVA-02 with Shinji to fight back, but…
9 Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!
The Seventh Angel, having been cut in half by EVA-02, splits into two entities
and defeats the EVA. The only way to defeat the two Angels is by applying a
heavy load to both cores at the same time. Misato begins training Shinji and
Asuka to work in unison as a perfect combination.
10 Magmadiver
The Eighth Angel is discovered in a chrysalis state in a volcanic crater. NERV
announces A-17, a strategy to retrieve the Angel while it’s still alive. Piloting
EVA-02, Asuka descends into the volcano. However, then the Angel begins to
emerge. Asuka must fight alone in the scorching magma.
11 The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still
Tokyo-3 is plunged into an unexpected blackout. Gendo and Fuyutsuki judge
that the blackout is sabotage and struggle to maintain order. Then the Ninth
Angel attacks. Shinji and the others hurry to NERV headquarters. There they
are met with the EVAs that Gendo has manually started.
12 She said, "Don't make others suffer for your personal hatred."
The Tenth Angel drops itself from outside of the atmosphere to strike a direct
hit on NERV headquarters. Misato proposes a strategy that has only a
0.00001% chance of success and Ritsuko accuses her of acting out of her own
desire for revenge. Will a miracle save them from the falling Angel?
13 Lilliputian Hitcher
The Eleventh Angel is the size of bacteria and begins infecting NERV facilities
as it evolves at an alarming rate. The Angel finally succeeds in hacking the
MAGI System and commanding NERV headquarters to self-destruct. Ritsuko
proposes to reverse-hack the Angel and cause it to destroy itself.

Originally one of the best television series of all time, unfortunately this re-translation butchers the carefully-chosen wording of the original English dub. The voice actors did their best but this translation is much more confusing and disjointed than it needs to be, which greatly lessens the experience compared to the original dub and sub. I would do what you can do get a copy of the first English dub or sub instead of sinking money into this one.

Five stars with a caveat. This is the Netflix dub version so if you want the original version you have to buy the physical media Collectorvs Edition version. So it depends on how important the voice acting is to you.
