This was a rather tricky programme to review. Great pains were taken to avoid spoilers so if you're a fan of Eva, please don't take umbrage with me for not going in-depth with certain areas. If you happen to dislike Eva or feel that it's overrated, I'd still encourage you to read through this entire review. Feedback is greatly appreciated, as always.

Also, if you're a die-hard fan of Eva and you're outraged I gave this show a 7/10, please keep in mind that I too am a fan of Evangelion, however I can't exactly overlook some of the glaring flaws it has. Regardless, this is read more

Evangelion is widely considered one of the most influential anime created in the 1990's, if not of all time. It is extremely well known for it's brave attempts to turn the mecha genre on it's head, it's deep character development, and it's unorthodox storyline. Created by acclaimed studio Gainax, and written by both praised (and sometimes hated) writer Hideaki Anno, Evangelion has been called a masterpiece by anime fans. Does it deserve this praise.

Simply, yes.

Story: One of the most well known aspects of Evangelion is it's story; it is simply unorthodox, as it does the process of not feeding all of the story the viewer; read more

Recommendations

Evangelion is the main source of inspiration for Rahxephon, many consider it a clone. Evangelion tends to be more complex and intellectual, concentrating on philosophy and psychology while Rahxephon tends to be easier and not so intelligent concentrating on a love story with harem like influences.
Young people fight battles against powerful beings they don't understand, for reasons they don't understand. suffering steadily increases as the story progresses. Surreal landscapes are experienced.
