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.

Virus Buster Serge

Virus Buster Serge

In the year 2090, an event known as Black Valentine changed the world forever. Now, the year is 2097 and Neo Hong Kong is being invaded by a mysterious virus that can infect both man and machine, and has only two side effects: mutation and death. Mankind's only protection is STAND -- a group of armor-wearing tough guys (and girls) whose mission is to destroy the virus at all costs. Enter Serge, a troubled young man who is on a mission for revenge against one of STAND's finest. When their two worlds collide, one thing is clear: Neo Hong Kong will never be the same!

The parallels between Eva and Virus Buster Serge have nothing to do with the plot. Rather, they both are gritty, intense, and a bit confusing in their premise, and are very dark at the same time. Don't expect to understand everything, but be confident that the overall story will be interesting enough. If you liked one, you'd probably like the other.

Welcome to the NHK!

Welcome to the NHK!

Tatsuhiro Sato is a university dropout and a "hikikomori" – a person suffering from social withdrawal. To Sato’s dismay, his self-imposed exile from the world is rudely interrupted when a mysterious girl knocks on his door. She has charged herself with the task of curing Sato of his hikikimori ways! Now, as new problems ranging from hentai games to internet suicide spring up, can Sato manage to overcome his hermit-like ways, or will the imaginary N.H.K conspiracy force him to remain a hikikomori forever?

In both series, all the characters have huge mental problems and most of the plot is about getting over them. Welcome to the NHK is a little less subtle about this, given its comedic value, but I think it would still translate well.

Zone of the Enders: Idolo

Zone of the Enders: Idolo

The year is 2167 and mankind has populated Mars. Somewhere on the Red Planet in a hidden lab the Martians are developing a new weapon known as "Idolo", which incorporates the mysterious mineral Metatron -- a combination that causes Idolo to become frighteningly powerful and gain a mind of its own. Lieutenant Radium Lavans is assigned as its test pilot, but the Metatron's power slowly consumes him and he begins to walk the path of destruction and madness. Will he be able to break free from its stronghold, or will it end in a bloodbath that consumes both the Earth and Mars?

Aranneas

Mecha combat series that explore the psychology of interacting with a giant unstoppable war machine on a day-to-day basis. Idolo, due to its shorter time frame, is of necessity more heavy handed; Evangelion has eight whole hours to gradually let the angst sink in.
