These two series are very similar as to how the story is portrayed. Both are phycological and twisted in the same ways, you never know what's going on and the story keeps building up and putting things together. FMA is full of humor and it can even pop up in the middle of a serious moment. Evangelion has ecchi humor that appears in its own time. And they both are considered one of the best anime.

The leading characteristic that I compare Evangelion to FMA by is the plot structure. Both have plot elements that follow directly from the preceding elements as well as an overarching goal that is foreshadowed either by being stated or implied. I'm a fan of both to a great degree and i recognize the similar elements between both. Happy viewing

There's a lot of similarity going on here: Ed/Shinji's relationship with their father and deceased mom Lt. Ross and Brosh look similar to Shigeru and Maya Makoto and Kain look very much alike and are both trustworthy Sheska and Ritsuko both look similar but one is geared towards books Both have something going on in the military/NERV Both have supernatural beings such as Homunculus/Angels Both are both amazing must watch anime series that you won't want to miss!

Both are action shows that get extremely weird, dark, and psychological as they go on, with a main character that struggles with depression and a dark and troubled past with his family.
