Franchise: Neon Genesis Evangelion

The original series

  • Neon Genesis Evangelion: The original anime series, which ran over a course of 26 episodes from October 1995 to March 1996.
  • Evangelion: Death and Rebirth: Feature-length film released in March 1997. Consists of the titular two parts:
    • "Death", which is essentially a Clip Show using material from episode 1-24 with some entire new scenes added in (some of these scenes were later included in the "Director's Cut"/"New Production Cut" version of the anime).
    • "Rebirth", which consists of the first 25 minutes of The End of Evangelion.
  • The End of Evangelion: Feature-length film released in July 1997. Consists of alternative versions of the anime's episodes 25 and 26. Werther it is meant to replace or complement the original ending remains a hotly debated issue in the fandom.

Light Novel/Visual Novel Adaptations

  • Neon Genesis Evangelion ANIMA, a Light Novel series set in 2018 in an alternate continuity where Third Impact never happened. It's been described as if Anno made Evangelion like a Gundam show. It contains (among other things) Evas duking it out in space, three Reis (again), and Fanservice. Available here and here (untranslated, unfortunately, despite the efforts of the Translation project).
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion: Girlfriend of Steel (also known as Iron Maiden), a Visual Novel in the style of an episode. This adaptation introduced Canon Foreigner Mana Kirishima, who went on to reappear some years later in Shinji Ikari Raising Project.
