No-one understands me.
You never understood anything.
I thought this was supposed to be a world without pain and without uncertainty.
That's because you thought that everyone else felt the same as you do.
You betrayed me! You betrayed my feelings!
You misunderstood from the very beginning. You just believed what you wanted to believe.
Nobody wants me, so they can all just die.
Then what is your hand for?
Nobody cares whether I live or die. Nothing will change... so they can all just die...

A true classical ending to a groundbreaking series
Neon Genesis Evangelion was a animated series that was never seen before by any one, i.e its amazing storyline which spans further then all that was seen in the series, great and interesting characters (finally, we don't get to see a all round tough guy here) and great mecha fights. However, one thing that disappointed me was the ending to the series, but thankfully, The End Of Evangelion changed all that.
The Alternate ending sees the preparation of the Third Impact. I won't spoil the story as it is really confusing for those who have not seen the series (which is extremely highly adviced). Here, all questions are answered but for a price, something completely unexpected.
With this, director Anno isn't doing the anime which heros live, all is well (like hmm...well...Pokemon for instance), Neon Genesis Death/Rebirth is extremely dark and the ending surpasses that of Akira. This is a great change and sets up for a unexpected climax.
Unlike the final episode of the series, this one has some of the most memorable mecha fights, sure if you thought Shinji eating the Angel alive was something wait till you see Asuka battling the EVA series, this is memorable stuff here, and the ending to this battle can be quite disturbing for some.
The expansive story ends here, and everything that is answered keeps the audience awake, the innovation with the religious references are well done, who'd thought that a cartoon about robots would explain why robots are shapped in the way they are.
Overall, a true memorable classic for a science-fiction series, however, do not start but start with the series, its safer there before you move on to here.
