Synopsis

After the second impact, all that remains of Japan is Tokyo-3, a city that's being attacked by giant creatures that seek to eradicate the human kind, called Angels. After not seeing his father for more than eight years, Shinji Ikari receives a phone call in which he is told to urgently come to the NERV Headquarters, an organization that deals with the destruction of the Angels through the use of giant mechs called Evas. Shinji's objective is to pilot the Eva Unit 01 while teaming up with the Eva Unit 00 pilot, Ayanami Rei.

So what happens you have a guy in a bout with depression direct a supposedly children’s super robot show? What you get my friends is what we call Neon Genesis Evangelion. Now flash-forward a few years and now said man is an accomplished director who is credited for making one of the most influential mecha anime to date. So of course he is happy as can be. Now said man intends to revisit his magnum opus yet again. What will became of this revisit soon to be called the Rebuild of Evangelion. The Rebuild of Evangelion was intended to introduce viewers previously unfamiliar with the read more

So it was really just Evangelion with better animation and the long scenes cut out.

First the Bad. I didn't think that I would have prefered to have the long scenes in the anime over having them cut out. This is assuming that you have watched Neon Genesis before, if you haven't then you probably have no idea what I am talking about. But the lack of the long scenes in the from the original anime results in a lack of character development and really just makes Shinji look whiny instead of realistic. Another thing was the lack luster soundtrack, they went from classic compositions to read more

Rebuild of Evangelion 1.01: You Are (Not) Alone is the first movie in the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy, which aims at remaking the movies the way Anno wanted to make them originally and make it more accessible than previous versions. It was released in theatres on September 1st, 2007, and has yet to be licensed Stateside. It was produced by Studio Khara (the Rebuild series is their first major work), and directed by Hideaki Anno (famous for his work on the original Gunbuster OVA and His and Her Circumstances), Kazuya Tsurumaki (famous for his work on FLCL and the original Gunbuster OVA) and read more

[NOTE: Mild SPOILERS in this review]

I just got back from seeing Evangelion 1.0 in theaters, and it was some experience. Though I didn't end up bringing the boom box playing a ripped CD of Prince's 1999 (and a bloody shame that is, too) it was still a real treat. The crowd was bigger than I had anticipated - I wondered if I might actually have the theater to myself, this being such a niche release and all, but it turns out I was dead wrong. While I wouldn't say every row was packed - it wasn't exactly a Transformers crowd (though one guy did have read more

Recommendations

Both have a similar post-apocalyptic world. The main character in both is always chased by his own past where he is the key to save the world or to destroy it. Both have massive destruction scenes annihilating entire cities. A difference between the two is that Trigun is not in the mecha genre.

Protagonists that are extremely self-conscious and weak that have to grow up and fight.
Both are remakes of the beginning of anime shows though Evangelion changed more things while Madoka Magica's plot is the same. They both have similar dark impressions. They are both about a group of people fighting against unknown creatures that are threatening to destroy humans. Even with these normal sounding plots, they are actually much deeper than they appear at first. Both Shinji and Madoka are faced with difficult decisions while being told to both do and not do something to save everyone. Sayaka develops in a similar way to Asuka and both of them just want to impress (and help) the person they love or impress everyone. Both have very good action scenes.
Both series are gory and revolve around constant threat from mysterious giants that appear out of nowhere with the intention of destroying human race and children fighting for all of mankind.
This is the first film in the Rebuild of Evangelion film tetralogy, a series in which Hideki Anno has revamped Evangelion into a story that's less psychologically intense, and is easier overall to understand than its parent TV series. This particular film is nearly identical to the first six episodes of the TV series, just on a much higher, Hollywood style budget. The two currently released sequels (2.0: You Can (Not) Advance and 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo) are where it deviates from the original series' overall plot.

However, many of the reasons I found the original Evangelion similar to Zoids: Genesis are still intact: Living Mecha, Post-Apocalyptic World, and some really dark scenes.

Like the original, Rebuild of Eva takes place in the year 2015, 15 years after an event called "Second Impact" destroyed half of the world's population, much like the Great Cataclysm in Zoids: Genesis did to Planet Zi. Now, in the present, towering alien monsters known as "Angels" are attacking the fortress city of Tokyo-3 to try and initiate Third Impact, which would wipe out the rest of the life on Earth. To combat them, the UN backed organization, NERV has built giant cyborgs known as Evangelions as the last line of defense.

Shinji Ikari is called to Tokyo-3 by his estranged father and Commander of NERV, Gendo, at the same time as the attack of the Angel "Sachiel". Gendo coerces Shinji into piloting the untested Evangelion Unit 01, and much like Ruuji was able to activate Murasame Liger, Shinji is able to do so with Unit 01.

Compared to the original series, though, Rebuild is a little more lighthearted, especially in the second film, where the interactions between Asuka and Shinji are reminiscent of some of the comedy that cropped up in Zoids: Genesis.
The main character of both stories have continuous fights with their own personality and have problens to confront new situatioms at first but try to overcome it.
