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

Seeing as how I am a fanboy of the original series of Neon Genesis Evangelion, you will have to take everything I say with a grain of salt. That said, it is pretty much inevitable that everyone watching this is already a fan of Evangelion anyway. So let's begin by making this clear: This is not Evangelion. It may look like Evangelion, it may claim to be Evangelion, but it isn't.

The movie covers episodes 1 through 6, beginning in much the same way as the series did, and ending with the 5th Angel's attack. We see much of the scenes faithfully recreated, up until Misato 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

Anime: Trigun
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.

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Movie 1: Hajimari no Monogatari
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  read more

Anime: Zoids Genesis
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  read more
