** Taking into account that Anno has gone into rehabilitation, then a possible interpretation of [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot some parts of the plot of]] ''3.33'' can be counted as a general slap to the face to the deep end of the scale of cynicism [[spoiler: in the form of WILLE (and by extension, Asuka and Misato): their general attitude, overall bitterness and the obvious lack of communication is what alienates Shinji to leave them at the beginning. If that wasn't enough, the fight at Central Dogma and the following events could have been prevented had Asuka stopped to talk to Shinji, who was clearly confused and willing to reason with her.]] In short, while reckless idealism leads to mistakes, complete cynicism accomplishes nothing, and in fact, can be even worse at times.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Before it can take off, the Wunder needs to use a bunch of spinning power plants to crank up a giant flywheel... [[RuleOfCool seemingly for no practical reason]], since we are explicitly told that its main power source is Unit-01. It then defeats an Angel by spinning its cores around and smashing them into each other.

In 1993, Hideaki Anno (fresh out of rehabilitation caused by problems during the production of ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'') begins work on what started out as a mecha otaku's dream show. Anno's increasing [[ArtistDisillusionment disappointment]] in (and [[CreatorBacklash dismissive disdain]] for) the {{Otaku}} community, as well as [[CreatorBreakdown issues in his personal life]] and Creator/StudioGainax's financial troubles, causes him to transform the show into the brutally-depressing deconstruction of the SuperRobotGenre (and numerous anime tropes) known as ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.

In 2002, Hideaki Anno (now HappilyMarried, [[CashCowFranchise filthy rich]], and respected by his peers) decided to revisit the most popular and influential anime franchise of the past decade--but without his previous depression influencing the story. Anno planned to re-tell the ''Evangelion'' saga by giving his ByronicHero cast a second chance ([[PeggySue literally]] [[EpilepticTrees or figuratively]]), making them somewhat more emotionally stable, and giving them hope and light at the end of the tunnel. (He also snagged a massive theatrical budget to help his plan become a reality.)

Thus begins the salvation of Shinji Ikari, Rei Ayanami, and Asuka Langley [[AlternateContinuity Shikinami]] in the four-film saga known as '''''Rebuild of Evangelion''''', directed by Creator/KazuyaTsurumaki of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' fame.

In spite of Hideaki Anno’s improved mental state, ''Rebuild'' does not have a LighterAndSofter tone compared to ''Neon Genesis Evangelion'': horrific scenes from the original either remain equally horrific or end up more nightmarish than before. Each ''Rebuild'' film exponentially increases the dark tone to the point where people have argued that ''3.0'' is [[UpToEleven even grittier than the original series]]. Though the events of ''Rebuild'' don't always turn out well for the protagonists, this retelling seems to give enough glimmers of hope throughout its plot to promise that the story won't end up as soul-crushingly devastating as the original TV series. Think of ''Rebuild'' as [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs the original ''Evangelion'' on proper medication]]: ultimately no happier than before, but a hell of a lot more stable.

''1.0'' and about half of ''2.0'' slightly streamline episodes of the original series (episodes 1 to 6 and episodes 8 to 12, respectively). After that, in Meta-acknowledgement of ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva's]]'' [[GainaxEnding finish]], Shinji becomes ImmuneToFate; while ''3.0'' and the forthcoming ''4.0'' keep some details of the original series intact, they mostly venture straight into AlternateContinuity territory, as ground work for [[Creator/HideakiAnno Anno's]] promised alternate ending for nearly identical characters.

'''Note:''' When released on home media, each film receives a few enhancements to its audio and visuals; the film's number receives an update to reflect this. ''1.0'' became ''1.01'' (DVD) and ''1.11'' (BD), ''2.0'' became ''2.22'', and ''3.0'' became ''3.33''. The films also receive other minor additions, but they don't affect the plot in any way. You'll find both sets of numbers used interchangeably on all the pages related to ''Rebuild'' for this reason.
