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.

But, time is running out.. for with each bullet they fire, Henrietta and the other girls lose a little more of their humanity.
In Gunslinger Girl and Neon Genesis Evangelion the main characters are adolescent children fighting for some shady semi-government organizations. In both series it leads to all kind of mental problems and weird relationships. Also some plot elements and themes appear in both series. If you liked this title you most probably like the other.
P.S. In both series the organizations are very twisted and do almost anything to achieve their goal. In my opinion the gals from Gunslinger Girl, for some reason, seem like a combination of the Eva pilots and Eva Units.
Though at first these two anime might seem dissimilar, they share something together; both focus on the psychological ramifications of have young children in roles where they can't act like children. In Evangelion, 14-year-olds pilot biological mecha; while in Gunslinger Girl, there are female assassins. The reactions of the children can be heartwarming or tragic. Each series explores not just the action element of the story; instead, they center on the characters.
Far, far away in a distant time, there is a tribe of people called the Golden Tribe who have the ability to create stars and foretell the future. They gave out a warning to those who have yet to mature: 'Move.'. Three tribes answered their call: the Silver Tribe, the Bronze Tribe, and the Heroic Tribe. Soon after, the Golden Tribe encountered a crashed ship in which only a baby human known as Age survived; they named the child's race the Iron Tribe and assigned one of the few living members of the Heroic Tribe to protect him and his race. Now, in a distant part of the galaxy, humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the other tribes. With only a prophecy to go on, they set out to the deepest depths of space to find their savior named Age -- humanity's last hope.
Neon Genesis Evangelion and Heroic age are examples of the mecha genre. The primary mecha in each are biological entities of massive power that are controlled in a degree by a young boy. Both the design and the disposition of Bellcross and EVA Unit 01 seem similar. Add to that the philisophical undertones of what it means to be human, and you have a number of similarities.
Evangelion is for those who are more interested in heavy philisophical discussion, while Heroic Age is for those looking for a more casual action series. If you enjoyed the action and philosophy of one, you should try out the others take on it.
Well, in both series the mecha part was made quite originally. They aren't just pieces of metal but living beings. Thinking and deciding by themselves, although in most of the series they are rather obedient to their masters/owners. Both series are fun to watch some even say that NGE is epic series (well, maybe for someone but I would argue).

Evangelion and Kare Kano don't really resemble each other, but if you enjoyed the psychoanalysis aspect of Evangelion, chances are you'll enjoy Kare Kano too.

Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence.

The Main Characters in both series are exactly the same. The Only Difference is that in Mirai Nikki TV the Main Character is stuck in a Battle royal with psychologically insane people and in Neon Genesis Evangelion the Main Character is Forced to fight Beings of Immense Power surrounded by Psychologically insane people. Both are the same except for the setting.
if you liked NGE Mirai Nikki will be definitely up your alley, same goes if you liked Mirai Nikki then NGE will be definitely a great watch for you
