Neon Genesis Evangelion, Death Note Recommendations
While it wouldn't seem they have much in common i felt both were amazingly deep and both kept me interested all the way through and made me have this feeling like "This is awesome."
Well the main story does not have nothing in common. However both have a high psychological side. Maybe Death Note don't touch you as much as Neon Genesis Evangelion, but stills a great anime and will certainly worth your watching.
Both also focus in the "God" word, but in different perspectives. :)
Death Note focus more in a psychological fight, and NGE in feelings and unique characters.
Ending, I would also say that both touch the theme "change the world".
both will leave you thinking.
trust me, if you liked one you will most probably like the other.
Complex and interesting plot with many twists.
HUGE amount of psychological disturbance, especially as the stories progress. It may not be evident for the first 4-5 episodes, but it requires a large amount of memory talent and controlled thinking to process what's going on. If you don't like it, it's likely because you don't GET it. If you can't get it, read spoilers, it's no shame to do so. All in all, these are both SUPERB anime.
The fact that Death Note needs to be:
1.Seen more than once to fully grasp the intricacies of actions, and the heavily focused mind battles of twisted magnitudes of complexity.
2.Forces you to concentrate on the text and dialogue going on, or else,
easily makes it a strong recommendation to Neon Genesis Evangelion universe.
Both are a masterpiece on their own
