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.

Both of these films summarize the events of the early episodes in their respective series. Also, both of them feature a young pilot who has to pilot a mecha for the first time and is learning how to cope with that experience.

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

Space Runaway Ideon is one of the anime that inspired Hideaki Anno's Evangelion, since they both deal with similar themes. Both are dark and gritty science fiction anime, featuring destructive mecha that display their own will. Both also have apocalyptic elements. Also, both movies summarize the events that happen at the start of the respective series.

Both of these films summarize the events of the early episodes in their respective series, using new animation. Both have a young mecha pilot as a main character, who is thrown in the front lines of war and has to cope with the experience of killing and watching people die.

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.

Both anime are produced by Gainax and retell the events of their respective TV series. Both are mecha anime which pay homage to old-school series and contain many references. Story-wise, both focus on main characters who are thrown in a battle against powerful enemies for the sake of humanity. The main characters, Shinji and Simon, also have similar personalities.

Both main characters are younger than the rest of the group. a lot of depressed scenes and the EvengalionzeroTYPE are samiliar.

Both provide intense action and voice-acting, revolving around dystopian worlds set into the future. While Blame! focuses on technology infesting a human world and the aftermaths which occur throughout the succeeding generations, Evangelion's plot has humans and robots coinciding and working together in order to stop the threat against humanity. Ultimately, Sci-Fi and psychological action galore.

Both are new in the same series with the exception: Digimon Tri takes place after Digimon Adventure whereas Evangelion 1.0 is part of the remake movies based on the old series. Both deconstruct the elements of the genre: Digimon Tri- Mons and Evangelion-Mecha Not to mention they both have fantastic visuals, soundtrack, and artwork. About the story, both deal with fictional monsters that attack the city and the main cast involve with young teenagers chosen to battle against them whereas the third party from behind the scenes begin to unravel their actions and their move as well.

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:  read more

Both are very concerned with the postwar youth generation as a whole. Whilst heart under blade represents japan's soul itself, rei is the successive and repetitive generations personified. While araragi represents japanese youth in general, shinji is both salaryman and anime personified. Though they both are the closest parallels around in both anime and japanese live action (trust me I'd know), one is complete while the other has years to wait for it's long over due and delayed conclusion. I'd personally recommend both as starting points for their respective franchises. As they are both the shortest examples in each and are perfectly suited for it.  read more

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.

you could say they are mitamedoushi, one of a kind. both anime has mecha action and deep plot in it. some evangelist say gridman copied evangelion, while new weebs said its the other way around. but in my opinion, they are both original.

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.

Protagonists that are extremely self-conscious and weak that have to grow up and fight. 
report Recommended by NeoRinTinTin
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. 
report Recommended by Am-In
Both involve machines, mysterious girls, warfare and themes of friendship/love and finding one's place in the world. They also have a similar feel at the end.

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.
