Although it's fairly generic, this caught my eye as a possible reference to the posters for Evangelion 1.0 and 2.0:

It's from the OP of Erased.

I was surprised to discover that this was not the only instance of a Popeye scene providing some foreshadowing of EoE. Basically, Olive Oyl's AT Field collapses (from about 5:40 to 6:05):

From Rurouni Kenshin, the armor of the character Fuji.

Certain volumes of the Manga have alluded that the creator, Nobuhiro Watsuki, cites Evangelion as his favorite anime.

"I blame teenage girls for everything." - Dr. Dave

Avatar: The last airbender's [Last episode] -> Aang vs Ozai
Neon Genesis Evangelion [Episode 19] -> Unit 01 (Shinji) vs Angel 14 (Zeruel)

1) Both trapped in small environment, sweaty, clenching teeth

2) Both trapped in a ball-like object, getting attacked several times by the enemy
ImageImage

3) The shit's about to get real moment; mystical ghost shit; godly intervention
ImageImage

4) And here the corrosponding face to that

5) Grabbing for the enemy; Unit 01 grabs the Angels "arm", Aang grabs Ozai's glorious beard
ImageImage

6) Enemy kicked away with unexpected power; Angel by foot, Ozai by airblow

7) And then there's this...

^The panda spirit Hei Bai from a season 1 episode was directly inspired by the Angels according to the commentary.
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

@kim
Bryan and Mike have said that they are HUGE fans of Evangelion, so it makes sense they'd take a few key elements from it for their own Anime Universe.

It's probably a coincidence. But. . . .

I think I found a reference to the MAGI system in episode 235 of Gintama, which is missing from this page. Thought you guys would like to look into this :).

The "brain in a jar" trope has been a sci-fi staple since films were black and white, and doesn't apply to the MAGI anyway, so I'd bet the reference is to something else. The black and red monoliths are kind of Seele-ish, though.

I thought he meant "Sagi" being reminiscent of "Magi" - it's a bit weak though.

Let's not have that discussion here. I've made my opinion on the topic of Shinji in Q/3.0 more than clear enough on other threads.
