Neon Genesis Evangelion
Evangelion is set 15 years after a world-wide disaster. The show's main characters are teenagers that pilot giant robots called "Evangelions" to fight giant monsters called "angels". The imagery in the show was inspired by Christianity and Judaism, depression, and philosophy.
The show was liked by critics, but the ending made many fans angry. The film End of Evangelion, released in theaters in 1997, acts as a different version of the show's ending. Other related media has been released, including several manga, soundtracks, and the "Rebuild of Evangelion" film series.
