Added DiffLines:
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: What ever [[spoiler: Tear tells Kiyoko]] at the end of the series ([[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow that the audience]] [[TheUnreveal doesn't get to hear]]) seems to immediately destroy her sanity, causing her to stab the former to death. Cue SlasherSmile.

Added DiffLines:
* PsychoticSmirk / SlasherSmile. [[spoiler: Kiyoko]] gives one after [[spoiler: stabbing Tear to death with the tuning fork at the end.]]

Added DiffLines:
* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler: Tear]] tells [[spoiler: Kiyoko]] something at the very end. The audience never hears what was said... but whatever it was, the latter [[GoMadFromTheRevelation does]] ''[[GoMadFromTheRevelation not]]'' [[GoMadFromTheRevelation take it well.]]

Edited for consistency. This page is in english. In english the surname comes AFTER the given name.
Sometime in the [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture super-present]], the fabled and mysterious Tomb of Gilgamesh is discovered by scientists who are digging around in Uruk (modern day Mesopotamia). A research center is promptly set up to study the strange energy which is being emitted by the site, but a series of events triggered by the site's discoverer, Madoka Terumichi, soon result in a global catastrophe which knocks out all electronics worldwide and turns the sky into a giant electromagnetic mirror. Madoka (who now calls himself Enkidu, after a character in the ancient ''[[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Epic of Gilgamesh]]''), is labelled a terrorist and promptly vanishes.

* AdaptationDistillation: A lot was changed from ShotaroIshinomori's original 1972 work. Most noticeably, the removal of extraterrestrials. The anime does share common themes with the original, though. The brother-sister pair Tatsuya and Kiyoko, along with an onyomi Enkidu name show up in both, although the kanji for the latter differs from the original. May also be a PragmaticAdaptation.

* EverybodyKnewAlready: When the truth of Reiko is spelled out [[spoiler: that "she" is technically a boy]], everyone but Tohru (and perhaps the audience) already knew, and acts like "What? You just figured out?"

Although it does bear something of a passing resemblance to ''NeonGenesisEvangelion'', which it may have been influenced by, the manga this series is based on dates from 1972.

''Gilgamesh'' is a tale packed with intrigue. Not only does it feature the above characters, there's also a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt corporation]], with a vicious PsychoForHire, Kazamatsuri Hayato, at its beck and call, and a group of well-intentioned (but ultimately ineffectual) scientists who are trying their best to get the Earth back to normal. Throw some clones, some tragic backstory and some Ancient Sumerian Mythology into the mix, and you have a series that makes for some pretty compelling watching.
