* TraumaCongaLine: This trope could easily be named "Shinji Ikari Syndrome". However, most of the main characters suffer from this to different degrees as well.

** The Mass-Produced Eva Series [[spoiler: which kills Asuka and crucifies EVA 01]] is a neat name for a visual representation of a tv series that is "mass-produced", without giving much thought to the purest of its narrative's issues - which, it seems, is exactly the kind of plot [[Creator/HideakiAnno Anno]] and [[Main/StudioGainax StudioGainax]] wanted to avoid.

''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.

Rife with budget, sponsorship, and censorship issues, the series was pushed from its original children's viewing block to a more adult-oriented timeslot, contributing to its incredible popularity. Nevertheless, as the series' end approached, Gainax struggled with severe problems in the forms of a production schedule that had been completely derailed and a budget that had been run more or less into the ground. The studio decided to cut their losses and threw out their original plans for the two-part finale, instead rewriting it to take place inside the minds of the main characters and use LimitedAnimation. This... didn't settle very well with fans, which partly motivated Gainax to adapt the scrapped finale into a feature-length film. However, ''more'' budget issues cut the film short, and the 27 completed minutes of footage were included as the second act of the 1997 film ''Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death and Rebirth'' (the first act, being a 70-minute ClipShow that summarizes the first 24 episodes of the original TV series). Eventually, Gainax was able to complete the rest of "Rebirth," and released the finished product four months after the first film as ''The End of Evangelion''.
