Neon Genesis Evangelion

This anime is a legend. Many awards had been given to this anime. Some awards were from film festival. The anime was created by Gainax, written and directed by Hideaki Anno, and co-produced by TV Tokyo and Nihon Ad Systems (NAS). Gainax suddenly gained many die hard fans because of Evangelion anime. This anime was a controversial because of it's story and plot that included some of Catholic and believes around the world. Hideaki Anno made us confused by it's emotional character.

The characters were Shinji Ikari, Rei Ayanami and Asuka Langley Soryu. According to Anno, Evangelion was an attempt to make all perspectives into one, creating characters that represent different things to different viewers to make it impossible for everyone to arrive at a single theory. I had to watched this anime for few times till I understand fully about the story really was.

The most prominent symbolism takes its inspiration from Judeo-Christian sources and frequently uses iconography and themes from Judaism, Christianity, Gnosticism,[58] and Kabbalism, in the series's examination of religious ideas and themes.

Evangelion had 1 movie. Neon Genesis Evangelion : Death & Rebirth. There will be a live action movie in 2009 if they don't cancel it. The live action movie will be made by ADV, Gainax, and Weta Workshop Ltd.. Its release is currently projected to occur at any time ranging from as early as 2009 to as late as 2015. In December 2005, Fortune Magazine reported in an article about ADV Films that it had raised "about half of the $100 million to $120 million" needed to produce the film. It's not completely clear if this money was raised by ADV alone or if part of that amount was contributed by Gainax. Gainax already spent a lot of money on this project. Hopefully this live action is not like Dragon Ball.
