Neon Genesis Evangelion is a Japanese anime series produced by Tatsunoko Productions and Gainax and directed by Hideaki Anno, broadcast between October 1995 to March 1996. The show is set in fifteen years after a global cataclysm referred to as Second Impact, with half of the world's population dead. The fourteen-year-old protagonist Shinji Ikari works with the organisation NERV to pilot a giant mecha known as Evangelion to fight against the mysterious beings known as Angels, while interacting with other similarly young pilots as well. The series features religious imagery, themes of depression, alienation and the pressure faced by the cast.

Episode 10: Magmadiver Edit

Asuka is tasked with going into a volcano to collect an unhatched Angel, wearing a heat-resistance D-Type plugsuit. However, she feels embarrassed and unable to go through with it when she finds out the suit becomes spherical as a means of handling the pressure in the volcano. Eventually, she goes through with the mission to spite Rei when the latter thinks to taking her place.
