Yes, it's obviously inspired by Neon Genesis. Here's an excerpt from the film outline:

Soulless Beauty Aorta is meant to be a deconstruction of the entire American film industry, and revenge against audiences that constantly pour money into the same movies reskinned. It will be advertised as an optimistic action-adventure sci fi film, with ABSOLUTELY NO HINT AT ALL TO THE TRUE VIOLENT, HORRIFYING NATURE OF THE FILM. I hope to surprise and shock audiences, make them feel truly awful. There is to be an embargo on any reviews that reveal the true nature of the film for two weeks after theatrical release. I am considering inserting stills from the highest grossing films of all time into the Return to Nothingness sequence, for one frame each.

It is to be a 2D animated film, using animation techniques from the 80s, such as cel animation (using real, reproduced celluloid sheets). The soundtrack is to be comprised primarily of tracks by The Beatles and classical Christian hymns, alongside original compositions

Is this actually achievable, or just a dream? Am I just a crazy person attacking people for liking things I don't like?
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

I like you Adam but I think this movie is already been made.

It's called " Cabin in the Woods" and it was made specifically to mock audiences for going to see the same derivative horror movies over and over again. Without asking for anything new to be added. It's a dark comedy meant to dress down the horror genre and its audience.

It's not subtle about it either. One of the main characters out right says "man I'm never going to see a Merman Kill somebody!"

Every movie has already been made. There's isn't a single movie that hasn't been made at least 2 dozen times. (And those are the real original, off-the-wall films. The mainstream stuff has been made at least 200 times a decade.)

I say go for it.

That'll definitely limit the value of your own work. You'd be better off operating on multiple levels. You say "inspired by Evangelion", so embrace that. Anno's criticisms came from a place of deep personal understanding and compassion.

I think you should go for it as well, maybe you could include creative ideas that are different to what has been done before.
