Both tell the story of a boy who is thrown into a "new world", having to fight to save the earth. Evangelion focuses on the emotional trauma of these events. Whereas Eureka Seven AO focuses more on the events themselves and the action.
Like Rebuild of Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is a 21st-century reimagining of a classic 90's sci-fi anime, set in an alternate continuity. Whereas Evangelion made the transition from a TV series to feature-length films, GitS does the opposite. The results of both are uniquely satisfying and provide a memorable experience apart from their original source material.
Fafner and Evangelion are kindred spirits, both explore the human elements and character interactions that are forged in extreme situations, employing the mecha genre as a means of developing the young pilots and the ordeals they go through. You are (not) Alone, in its skilful retelling of the first six episodes of Evangelion, is closely tied to the initial phases of Fafner.
