Anno wanted the EVAs to be as tall as the original Ultraman. However it was denied that this would be to small for modern Japanese buildings so the height had to be increased. See more »
Several of the appearances of EVAS, the size of the robots in terms of the proportion of the stage, constantly changing. In some cases show a height of about 83 feet, when Evas are in the HQ this size is reduced to 65 feet, then appear as large as a fourteen-store building. See more »

Neon Genesis Evangelion and The End of Evangelion Movie are some of the best things to come out of anime. I consider them one in the same and canonically support both the ending of the show and the film, as they don't overlap. Although the ending of Neon Genesis did feel like there was something to be desired, End of Evangelion delivered one of the best finales to an anime ever made. The whole show is teaming with mental health issues in an every increasing world of trauma for our main characters. The arcs of Misato, Shinji, Asuka and Rei are all superb and these are all classic anime characters. The opening theme to the show sets the tone perfectly, it is the only opening to a show that I've never skipped once. Animation, although semi dated at first glance, is done so perfectly for its time that it holds up among modern anime, the film especially holds up. The action in the TV Show starts out somewhat underwhelming but as the series goes on, becomes flawless, finally outdoing itself with Asuka's battle in End of Eva. As I consider the movie and show the same thing, this is an incredible anime, with so many questions and so much that's left to satisfy anyone who watches the show. Neon Genesis Evangelion is a philosophical work of art.
