Hi, i was wondering if any of you could help me with some reccomendations of anime to check out, basically i'm interested in anything similar to Neon Genesis Evangelion, i really like the plot and i'm struggling to find anything quite like it.
I've seen Akira, Appleseed, various Gundam series, Full Metal Panic, Ghost in the Shell, the more 'western' friendly anime titles i suppose, but none of them really came close to the vibe of Evangelion. In fact the closest thing i've found to it are the games Final Fantasy VII and Xenogears (which bares interesting similarities to Evangelion). I like the religous aspects to the series as well as the themes of science/technology ethics and anything involving mecha is a bonus!
So are there any other series/films i may enjoy or is Evangelion one of a kind?
Brilliant ending, but a little hurried. The first half or so of the first episode of the OVA gives a better view of what happened to the world after Mai Otome ended.
