Neon Genesis Evangelion
In the year 2015, the world stands on the brink of destruction. Humanity's last hope lies in the hands of Nerv, a special agency under the United Nations, and their Evangelions, giant machines capable of defeating the Angels who herald Earth's ruin. Gendou Ikari, head of the organization, seeks compatible pilots who can synchronize with the Evangelions and realize their true potential. Aiding in this defensive endeavor are talented personnel Misato Katsuragi, Head of Tactical Operations, and Ritsuko Akagi, Chief Scientist.
Face to face with his father for the first time in years, 14-year-old Shinji Ikari's average life is irreversibly changed when he is whisked away into the depths of Nerv, and into a harrowing new destiny—he must become the pilot of Evangelion Unit-01 with the fate of mankind on his shoulders.
Written by Hideaki Anno, Neon Genesis Evangelion is a heroic tale of a young boy who will become a legend. But as this psychological drama unfolds, ancient secrets beneath the big picture begin to bubble to the surface...

- Reboot/Spinoff: Rebuild of Evangelion (Tetralogy)
A classic and one of the most popular animes up to date... Why haven't I gotten around to watching it earlier? So far I am on episode 18 and love it. Recommend it to everyone who hasn't seen it yet. But what if you don't like mecha? Three words: Always. Make. Exceptions. This anime goes beyond the mecha genre and apparently will kitten you up later in the mind. I've already seen and heard bits and pieces and am sure that the next few episodes alongside the movie End of Evangelion will be a rollercoaster of emotions. And plus: The opening? How can you resist its addictiveness? It always makes me wanna groove.
