Synopsis:

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Neon Genesis Evangelion and Texhnolyze have the same level of Depth and Meaning and both are full of symbolism.

Texhnolyze is the only anime I've yet seen that even compares to Neon Genesis Evangelion in terms of artistic depth and symbolism. And the story takes a while to unfold, but it reminds me of NGE in that around 3/4 of the way through it REALLY picks up. The characters are perhaps less likable in Texhnolyze  than in Neon Genesis Evangelion. Also,  Texhnolyze is NOT a happy series and it makes Neon Genesis Evangelion  look like a Disney film when you compare the Tone of the two series.

I completely agree. Texhnolyze, NGE, ( and perhaps Serial Experiments Lain) are the only anime series' I've ever seen that are just pure psychological science fiction genius. Though I didn't necessarily enjoy the first half of Texhnolyze while watching it and had to use online plot summaries to fill in the blanks, it left me pondering for days on end.

Quick mecha action... great graphics... revelation of new and more powerful vehicles... similar to evangelion in many ways the humor is a bit foreign to Eva but i think you will enjoy it
Mallo

Vandread and NGE probe into the human soul. If you want a series that can make you think, both are able to suffice.These two go hand in hand as the one the evil side of man, and the other the good side.

Giant mech, seemingly mentally unprepared pilots, awesome fight scenes and a good look at human emotions piece together both of these series.

Argento Soma is probably a little more cohesive, with an easier to understand ending. But NGE stands alone as an epic and intense series, the first of its psychological kind.

If you love the excitement of NGE, you're bound to enjoy the same thing in Argento Soma.

Armitage III is a series you would want to watch if you want to see a sci-fi thriller that shows its own brand of the future of humanity. Not to spoil the plot but it's about the ethics of cyborgs and human like robots. Although you may get an incomplete feeling after watching Armitage III from the many scenes cut in Polymatrix, you'll experience a pioneering movie with style that was produced in America.

Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...

Both anime are about fighting for mankind and survival. Both anime does have a dark story and tragic deaths.
