Berserk

Berserk

Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

There's the obvious--great fights filled with lots of gratutitiuos violence and blood. What really strikes me as similar though is the depth and reallism of the characters. They do not gloss over the 'darker', weaker side of the human spirit, which lends the afore mentioned touch of reallism.
TheBurningCrow
Berserk is another series with an unexpected ending that's just as timeless as Eva. Also quite violent, so if you liked that aspect, there is more than enough room in Berserk for you. Plus you get the added bonus of good character design, memorable music and shattered emotions. enjoy!

I chose Berserk because it has a similar tear-your-hair-out-mindfuck type ending. Completely different plot, but similar type of ending nonetheless.

RahXephon

RahXephon

Ayato Kamina may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured by TERRA, a military organization set on saving the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of his old life and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential with RahXephon.

If you love mind boggling plots then these shows are for you. The depth of intelectual writing that went into both of these is phenominal. Both are definitely worth the watch.
sothis
A must see if you watch Evangelion (which would be highly suggestful, considering RahXephon and Eva are extremely similar).
TheBurningCrow
If you haven't watched Evangelion first, do so. This is the END of it, hence the title. But the whole imagery and idea behind the End of Eva is very similar to that of the end of RahXephon.

Akira

Akira
  • Movie (1 ep x 125 min)
  • 1988

Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.

Looking forward to a wacky, but interesting and imaginatively animated apocalypse?  Well, if you liked End of Evangelion's brand of sci-fi dystopia meets psychological trauma, Akira might be for you.  Akira, like EoE, presents an engaging, if somewhat horrifying, vivid and surreal presentation of both the  internal and external crises experienced by characters in dark settings and tense situations.  If you loved the latter half of EoE, in particular, you'll almost certainly love Akira.  

triplestrike

Akira and end of Evangelion both deal with some dark subject matter but manage to portray it with enough charm to keep you as the viewer entertained while also thinking. End of Evangelion is the end of a series while Akira is a stand alone movie so it may be difficult to compare the two but if you've seen akira and liked it considering watching neon genesis evangelion and then end of ecangelion. If you've seen Evangelion, you may like Akira.

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

Paranoia Agent upon first glance may not seem like an obvious choice for a recommendation with End of Evangelion, yet both share a similar world view. If your extremely cynical of the otaku culture both films have something to offer you. Anno made end of Eva to savagely attack the fans of his series evangelion as his first break with otaku-ism, a similar level of criticism is held towards fandom is in Paranoia Agent as well as the consumerist society of modern Japan. While EVA is more agnsty with its 'superflat' (look the word up if your curious ;) ) oriented criticism of Otaku fetishes, Satoshi Kon takes a more satirical approach. Like EoE, highly recommended for the jaded anime fan.

Individuals assessing their relationships with others, the the world around them and, in turn, themselves in context are discussed through heavily symbolic, trippy animation in Evangelion and Paranoia Agent. People's ability to create and recreate the world for themselves through the power of imagination and/or proxy-relationships with pop culture play a vital role in both stories.

This recommendation is more based on a gut feeling than anything else. The Adolescence of Utena and End of Eva are both retellings of their respective series and in both cases the intense imagery coupled with a complex and heavily symbolical atmosphere create an utterly surreal environment that deconstructs itself at every turn. They share the same epic quality even as they delve deep into the human psyche, despite the fact that the plot may seem to vary considerably. In these movies the role of the individual in the world and the very nature of what these two entities may be is what truly is at stake.

If you like picking apart symbolism, and aren't turned off by things that won't make sense at first glance, the Utena and Evangelion movies are excellent.
