Evangelion 25th Anniversary video; a comparison with Sonic X

Apart from my Sonic X nostalgia, back in college I was watching captpan6's Haruhi YTPs and heard on TV Tropes that Yuki Nagato was based on Rei Ayanami. In light of all of that, I'm kicking myself for not getting around to watching Evangelion in time for the 20th anniversary, as glad as I am I got around to it for the 25th. That stark contrast in tone; from slice of life to intense peril; is a far stronger version of that "those scenes were from the same show?" incredulity I craved from shows like Sonic X. (The above video focuses on the "intense peril" aspect, by the way, so if you're in the mood for something lighthearted, this ain't it.)

Not sure if it's considered rude to plug one's videos in one's first post around here, but I figured this would be as good a place as any to draw attention to it. Previously I've been discussing Evangelion on 4chan, and I presume this site will be a better alternative as far as further discussion of it goes.

Disclaimer: I still haven't gotten to End Of Evangelion yet, but of course I've heard of the "come back to me" scene and what follows. Kiss scenes have a way of attracting attention, and the emotional intensity of the prior few minutes' worth of context has a way of holding it.

EDIT: As of Oct 7, I've now watched End of Evangelion as well. I still see no further comparisons that need to be made to Sonic X than those in the video.

EDIT again: I've since noticed a few similarities between Sonic X ep 9 and Eva ep 10. My comparison between them has been flagged by content ID. Will post only if/when the matter has been resolved.
