Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン, Shin Seiki Evangelion?) is a popular Japanese anime that began in 1995. The anime was written and directed by Hideaki Anno, and produced by Gainax. It is a post-apocalyptic mecha action series, and references a number of Judeo-Christian symbols from the book of Genesis and biblical apocrypha. Later episodes shift focus to psychoanalysis of the main characters, who display various emotional problems and mental illnesses. Hideaki Anno, the director of the anime series, had suffered from depression prior to creating the series, and the psychological aspects of the show are based on the director’s own experiences in dealing with depression and psychotherapy.
