Well they may but I certainly do not. They are guilty of other transgressions though.

Really, you saw the unaired episodes of Ideon? How were they to the movie? The ending was scrapped! So now any movie that recaps any part of it broadcast series can thank Ideon too? I don't think so.

There were other dark anime before EVA, just not with an apocalyptic ending from what I know. Zeta Gundam & Votoms are dark sci-fi anime. Zeta Gundam doesn't have an apocalyptic ending where the universe is destroyed or anything but it does have a very dark Kill Em' All Tomino ending. A...

One of the most famous anime directors of all time, Tomino didn't resonate with the public? Learn your anime history my friend. Tomino's more well known than Anno is. Tomino created the real robot genre. Tomino's Mobile Suit Gundam spawned a franchise that has produced 10 complete TV se...

And that formula was already a Tomino mainstay. It was not invented by Eva, don't you get it? Tomino was doing angsty disfunctional pilots, shadowy forces behind the scenes pulling the strings, cryptic messages, and questions on the essence of humanity a good 10-15 years before Eva was even tho...

But at what point does it cross the line-that is the question. Is it a dennotative or connotative rip-off? Dennotative, no. Connotative, yes. Some people will have a high burden or proof, some will only take one coincidence to delcare it a rip-off. This is the reason why this thread is so damn long....

See, this is the reason I don't really like calling myself an Evangelion fan, even though it's still one of my absolute favorite anime. That RahXephon is a ripoff of Evangelion is an idea I abandoned ages ago, and it's something that I'm not too proud to admit that I've actually...
