''Gasaraki'' was produced by {{Sunrise}}, directed by Ryosuke Takahashi of ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms'' fame and originally aired in 1998. Creator/{{ADV Films}} released a translated version. It is a bit notable for more recent anime fans as the first big "series-wide" directoral job a certain Goro Taniguchi had - he was "assistant director" for the entire show and helped to make it (somewhat) comprehensible. His work here would lead to him being allowed to fully write, direct and produce ''{{Planetes}}'' (which could not possibly be more different from this show) and ''CodeGeass'' (which, on some level, might be seen as ''Gasaraki'''s spiritual successor - it takes on a lot of the same fundamental themes as ''Gasaraki'', just [[ByronicHero from a different viewpoint]]).

** This is probably a case of OlderThanTheyThink combined with SelfPlagiarism. Ryosuke Takahashi, the director of Gasaraki, is also famous for ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS, a series from TheEighties that uses many of the themes Gasaraki allegedly "stole" from Evangelion. In particular, the cosmic force in the series is fairly similar to [[spoiler: Wiseman]] from VOTOMS, Yushiro and Miharu's relationship is much closer to the one between [[spoiler: Chirico and Fyana]] than the one between Shinji and Rei, and SYMBOL is very similar to the [[spoiler: Secret Society]].

* BatmanGambit: Nishida's plan to restore Japan's honor[[spoiler: by intentionally causing the economic collapse of both the US and Japan's stock market/economy by using Japan's economic information and liquid assets as a weapon of sorts, forcing Japan to endure 3 years of poverty, being confident that Japan's people would be able to endure such hardship. It gets derailed slightly when the US president [[TakeAThirdOption Takes A Third Option]], lifting the wheat trade embargo and admitting defeat, resulting in Japan getting what it wanted mostly peacefully. Although Nishida was satisfied with this, he still felt he had failed, and takes his own life.]]

* PossessionImpliesMastery: Subverted; throughout the series, neither side fully comes to grips with using their mecha. Ataka even says in episode 5 when three ishtars show up "This is crazy! We haven't even faced other TA's on the simulator yet."

Yushiro is the fourth son of the Gowa family (he has a younger sister, Misuzu, in addition to his brothers), and one of the test pilots for a new piece of military hardware referred to as "Tactical Armor", or [=TAs=] -- in other words, HumongousMecha. He is also involved in a ritual dance (based on traditional Nou (or Noh) dance movements), overseen by the Gowa family, which appears to be a type of SummoningRitual. During his first attempt at this ritual, Yushiro is attacked by a vision of a teal-haired female wearing a mask (probably Ko-omote, see below) who no one else can see, and who, before she disappears, begs him not to bring back the "terror". At the same time, in another part of the world, a mysterious organization is conducting an experiment of their own -- involving the same teal-haired female, a girl named Miharu...

* CurbStompBattle: The Kugai lays a big one on two of Symbol's Fakes, even after getting its arm blown off. It literally ''stomps'' through a leg joint of one of them, severing the leg.
