Unfortunately mecha series are the domain of teenagers in Japan, so most of the shows are basically walking cliches that don't explore anything that might actually be interesting about a futuristic war fought with giant robots. They're just vehicles for teenage boys to watch other teenage boys do more outlandish things than they will ever do.

I'd recommend Gunbuster, though. It was the guy who directed Eva's first series, and has many of the elements that would become Evangelion, along with a heavy dose of Ender's Game. It's full of cheesy anime cliches, but rises above them for the most part.

That made me think Eva had more than one TV series. Sorry for being a grammar nazi. However, I will try that out. Thanks a bunch.

I recently saw a music vid of a fantastic fan translation of Eva's theme song. It was really freakin' freaky at the end. I kept thinking "What the hell is this? I gotta finish this show as soon as possible." Well, I read the plot to the show and the movie, since I don't mind spoilers. And now I'm more eager to finish it than before now that I know how it ends. I wish it had a sequel, though, since the new film series is a reboot.
