it's a reincarnated world in the manga, possibly thousands of years after the previous events - Asuka's touch gave him a knee-jerk reaction, and he wasn't sure why. Yasmin, careful: you edit tropes with NGE in the manner suggesting you despise the manga. Maybe you don't, but that is a clear impression that I read. The last thing TV Tropes wants to be is a site to spew hate - literally, the last thing.
* PlotHole: The manga version has a gigantic one in its final chapter: [[spoiler: If Shinji remembers everything that happened to him before the world was reconstructed, why doesn't he recognize Asuka & Kensuke? Sure, ''Eva'' is a MindScrew, but there's a difference between mind screws and making ''no logical sense''.]]

''Evangelion'' [[MagnumOpus defined the career]] of its creator, Creator/HideakiAnno, whose personal battles with depression at the time of its creation directly inspired many of the show's themes. Anno has since come to fully own it, even as it's spun off into [[Franchise/NeonGenesisEvangelion numerous adaptations]] which either play on the themes of the anime or ignore them to varying degrees. Also, the series' confusing and controversial ending (and the ending of ''The End of Evangelion'' to a slightly lesser degree) became the first instance of what would come to be known as the GainaxEnding, as the studio embraced what had been brought about by ''Evangelion'''s budget shortages and made it a cornerstone of their works.

One of Asuka's main traits is that she is fiercely inpendent, so Instrumentially is basically her worst nightmare. If anyone could will herself back, it would be her.
** Notably averted in ''EOE'': [[spoiler: At first, Asuka being the only person left on the planet besides Shinji after he rejects Instrumentality seems like this. But it's explained that people can come back from the LCL sea if they want to - apparently, most chose otherwise. And besides, Shinji couldn't conceive of a world with no Asuka in it, anyway, which means she probably didn't leave the sea of LCL on her own free will.]]

*AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Kaworu Nagisa only first appears in episode 24 of the 26 episode long TV series, but he is seen in the first movie of the new Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy. He also shows up quite a bit earlier in the manga adaptation, and is among the first introduced characters in pretty much every Alternate Continuity. This may have something to do with the creators acknowledging him as being a [[EnsembleDarkhorse a popular character with the fanbase]] and thus deciding to given a more prominent role in the stories of adaptation by introducing him earlier.

* CastFullOfCrazy: {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. Although all of the cast is mentally broken in various ways, the reasons why are clearly explained and shown in detail. It's also notable in that the characters' various instabilities helps bring about the worst possible outcome. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Or not...]]]]

No bolding for work titles. See format rules on How To Create A Works Page, 4th paragraph "No bolding is used for work titles" and FAQ: "What emphasis do I use for the title?: Whatever you do, it does not belong in boldface-font."
'''''Neon Genesis Evangelion''''' (''Shin Seiki Evangelion'') is a 26-episode science fiction/action/drama {{anime}} series by Creator/StudioGainax which aired on Japanese television in 1995-96. In 1997, Gainax followed the series with the film ''Death and Rebirth'', a ClipShow revision of the series which condensed many of its episodes into an hour-and-a-half timespan (while also expanding a few scenes). ''Death and Rebirth'' also featured the first half-hour of ''The End of Evangelion'', a full-length movie that brought the story to a much more definitive (but by no means less controversial) conclusion than the television series did.
