Awesome Music: Neon Genesis Evangelion

Cruel Angel's Thesis

Original Series

Rebuild

Other
  • There are several unused tracks on the various OSTs. Imagine the audience's faces when during the orchestral recording of Evangelion Symphony, the string quintet playing ''Canon'' suddenly cuts into a rap version of the same song without warning. Even better, it was actually put into the Evangelion VOX album. Shiro Sagisu has a strange sense of humor. And if someone actually bothers to listen to the lyrics, they go very well with Evangelion. "Too much hatred, too much grief" indeed.
  • The Rebuild 1.0 OST has three bonus tracks sung by Misato's seiyuu, Kotono Mitsuishi. Talk about Breaking the Fourth Wall... though this has been going on long before Rebuild, and not just with Misato's voice actor. Even Megumi Ogata (Shinji's VA) did a version of "Cruel Angel's Thesis".
  • From the end of Mayumi's scenario in 2nd Impression is Kimi wa Kimi ni Umareta Wake, Not only is it sung by Mayumi's seiyuu, Kyoko Hikami, but the lyrics also imply that it is actually Mayumi's Image Song. For added awesomeness factor, the song is actually performed by the characters in-universe! Specifically, Shinji is the cellist, Toji is the guitarist (taught by Aoba), Kensuke is the keyboardist and Mayumi is the singer.
  • An unused track from the second OST is Yokan from Yoko Takahashi. What makes it especially notable is that it is played during the VERY Tear Jerker ending of Girlfriend of Steel, when Shinji and Mana part ways for the last time.

... So basically all of it?
