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.
Kazuki Yotsuga is able to see things that others can't; in his visions, giant robots battle it out in the streets, causing massive damage in their wake. Though his visions have made him an outcast from the rest of his peers, they have attracted the attention of Ken Sanada – a physicist who believes Kazuki’s visions are a gateway into a parallel world! He places Kazuki into one of his inventions and accidentally sends him to the parallel world in his visions, where he finds himself in the middle of a war for control of the world! Kazuki must now become a pilot of one of the robots in order to join the fight for peace, all the while trying to find his way back to his own world…
If you liked Evangelion, you would like Dual because it's a lot like Evangelion. It's got girls in spandex and one boy hogging them all. There's lots of drama and fight scenes with robots.
Both of these titles are very similar; a male main character is the only hope of winning against his enemies, and is surrounded by girls. The only real difference is that Evangelion is a lot darker than Dual.
For me, Dual is very similar to NGE. The beginning of Dual is very similar to NGE (as well as the ending), and the robot designs are also similar. Dual is far less complicated to understand than NGE, and I liked that it didn't have any religious comparisons. If you liked one try the other. :)
Both anime are very similair with both Mechs as Pilots, in both series the main character, a Guy doesn't want to fight, but only ride the mechs. then we have one girl who is emotionless and learning. and a girl who says what she thinks, and still trying to dodge a lot of questions. the mechs also look similair in both anime
Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures takes a lot of elements from Neon Genesis Evangelion, but replaces the drama with a harem. Well it is a post-NGE anime and it shows a lot. The characters in Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures are poorly written and so is the plot, nonetheless you might want to check one of those series if you've already seen the other.
"Are you there?" This is the question that the aliens always demand before they attack. The quiet island of Tatsumiyajima is secretly the last line of defense against mysterious invaders. In a quiet and rustic villiage, children were raised without any knowlege that they were born to pilot the Fafnirs, giant robotic war machines of terrible powers that are the only thing that can defend all they hold dear.These children's struggles will be the only thing that can hold off an enemy that attacks both our bodies and our sense of identity...
Both Evangelion and Fafner employ mechas and monstrous creatures to develop the characters of the pilots and their inner conflicts. In addition, both series have a penchant for the philosophical: Eva tends to be darker and perhaps more confusing while Fafner is more straightforward and optimistic.
Fafner and Evangelion go hand in hand. Evangelion is what started it all and Fafner is a newer version. Fafner picks it up and changes it slightly, it tosses out some of the bizarreness and keeps the psychological and story aspects. Don't let this fool you though, these aren't simple clones and are both worth watching!
Fafner and Evangelion are very similar animes. Only certain individuals can use these great machines, along with fighting strange invaders who want to destroy the world. Fafner is basically an easier version of Evangelion, and less confusing. These are both great anime's, which are easy to understand, and is worth the time looking into, that's if you're a major mecha fan.
If yoy like Mech's anime, and you like that it has an imporntant amount of misterious, you would like both series. Evangelion is more misterious and Fafner is a little less, but perhaps a little more dramatical. Two stories of very youngs boys that are forced by the circunstances to take control of a machine of destruction... to protect their loved ones.
Fafner and NGE are really very similar series. Both have semi-post apocalyptic worlds which are hidden from the main characters, and both have enemies that are not fully understood and are basically invincible except against mechs. They also share a philosophical focus on the loneliness of indivuality, although Fafner is rather straightforward and easy-going on this matter, whereas NGE will throw your brain in a sack and beat with a stick.
NGE and Fafner are like brothers born a decade apart (or close to that) - both have very similar themes and concept. Both are about fighting an unknown enemy, both have giant robots (although Fafner doesn't have purple ones), both have kids piloting the said robots, and both have people going psycho. Even in the first fight (of both anime) the protagonist was pitted against an enemy without any prior training (and then suddenly powering up to win. Plots are different in the sense that Fafner is slightly less depressing than Eva, and that Fafner has a yaoi factor going for it.
In a sense, Fafner can be said to be the younger generation's Eva (though much less epic in my opinion).
I loved both NGE and Fafner. I had read that fafner was an eva clone and at first i thought so too... but it gets very good and interesting.
Both animes revolve around a main charakter that is a teenager with a mecha and psychological problems and are both very good.
If you liked one you'ill probably like the other.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
Although both are by Gainex, FLCL and NGE involve many intense self thinking moments and deep visual mindf**ky stuff.
FLCL is much like the last few episodes of NGE in the fact that... well, neither of them really make much sense. What they say is logical and all (well... mostly), but how certian events occured isn't explained at all.
Both of these are Gainax at its most peculiar. Both feature fairly whiny protagonists that are usually pushed around by the women in their life. While FLCL is a bit more comedic than NGE, it still holds the "What was the director smoking?" plot.
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.
If you loved the many mental problems that the majority of the Evangelion characters were plagued by, then you'll ADORE the things going on in the head of Tetsuo from Akira! Both anime have a very serious tone, which at the end becomes very prominent as the main characters try to escape the people trying to help them.
Both of these anime are considered classics and have contributed an untold amount to the anime world. Also, both Akira and Evangelion both are best in class when it comes to not having to explain everything to the viewer. It leaves a lot up to interpretation by the viewer, resulting in a more involved interaction between the viewer and the show.
Evangelion and Akira are bouth set in a post apocaliptic world and folow the main characters who are forced to find there hidden powers. But other simularities are not that obvious and if a I try to explain them I would spoil your fun. But I can say that they have a simular feel to them and they bouth concentrate on the psihological state of the characters as well as the action.
What happens if you put the fate of existence in the hands of adolescence? Both NGE and Akira center around this theme and build upon it quite nicely. If you are a big fan of government conspiracies, psychological themes, apocalypse, or MindF*ck, give any one of these bad boys a try.
Both Akira and EVA are set in very similar worlds that put a young man center stage to try and save a world heading towards destruction. If you enjoyed the dark and mysterious aspects of one, you'll like the other.
They're both great sci-fi anime with a deep meaning. Both reccomended.Akira and Neon Genesis Evangelion both wrote an important page of the Japanese animation history and are both scheduled as "masterpieces".
Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.
Escaflowne and Evangelion feature some pretty messed up characters that can't tell up from down. You'll find yourself constantly asking what's wrong with a few of the characters, but otherwise the action in both keeps the stories rolling.
Both series are similar in one interesting thing - the possibility to control the power of robots with the body and mind, the possibility to identify with robots. Although this can be done only by certain persons.
Do you like crazy people in non traditional mecha? Both of these anime have got that. Actually though, the storylines are somewhat similar in their epic level of scale, emotional connections between characters, and battles for destiny.
Each of these series had very odd characters that were twisted and both incorporated mecha battles into a concept of Armageddon in order to restore everything to a better more perfect design.
Both are fairly slow paced, dramatic, and deep storylines that may cause the viewer to analyze metaphysical concepts of the world
Did someone say plot twists? Look no further than these two animes. Both of these animes have an interesting take on mechas and a rather mind-bending plot. With a heavy dose of emotional issues, the characters are also pretty similar in both animes.
