Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the most iconic anime to have ever come out of Japan, with the franchise still just as relevant as when the first anime was released way back in 1995. Neon Genesis Evangelion has also spawned a film franchise named “Rebuild of Evangelion”, with its fourth and final installment coming to the big screen later in 2020.
