''Evangelion: [=ReDeath=]'' is a 2000 GagDub of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' made by [[http://sokodei.com/ Studio Sokodei]]. It takes both the series and the movie and somehow boils it down to a half hour ComingOfAge parody, which is quite an accomplishment. ''[=ReDeath=]'' is frequently shown at anime conventions, and remains one of the more popular and quoted fan-parodies of ''Evangelion'' out there. It was recently re-released in a [=ReDux=] version.

* GagDub: It is notable not only for becoming one of the first highly popular and [[MemeticMutation meme-spawning]] Gag Dubs in Western fandom, but for doing so years before the genesis of Website/YouTube and the AbridgedSeries phenomenon.

In the film, we follow LoserProtagonist Shinji Ikari, who sets out on his epic quest to discover exactly what this "nookie" thing everyone keeps talking about is, and, most importantly, [[QuestForSex how he can acquire some of it]]. Meanwhile, his father, Gendo the Pimp, attempts to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt through the use of a horribly-outdated pop song by Music/{{Prince}}.

The [=ReDux=] version can be viewed [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3mikxh here]].
