The ending theme song is "Fly Me to the Moon". Approximately 56 different versions of the song were produced for the show. Some of these contain vocals, are karaoke versions, or are instrumentals. Others are short-length mixes or "TV-size" versions of previous recordings that were designed to be played at the end of the show, and a few versions of the song are not even called "Fly Me to the Moon" at all. To date, most of these recordings can be found in Original Soundtracks I, II, and III as well as the CDs "Addition," "Birthday of Rei Ayanami," "Refrain of Evangelion," "Death & Rebirth," and the 7-disc "S2 Works" collection. However, several of the TV-size versions that appear during the show's closing credits are not available on any official Evangelion CDs to date. See more »

Are you asleep yet, Mr. Kaji?
No, not yet.
What kind of person is my father?
Well, that question is a surprise. I thought you were going to talk about Katsuragi.
It seems you're always with him.
The deputy commander is the one with him all the time. Have you been asking around about your father?
I haven't been with him for a long time...
So, you don't know.
But I have learned many things about my father recently. About his work, my mother...
No, you're wrong. You just think you understood. Well...

The most controversial, talked about, and yes, impressive anime series ever...
Well, what can I say about a series that's as absolutely mind-blowing as the 26 episodes and two movies that make up Neon Genesis Evangelion? This is, quite simply, a masterpiece. What starts out as a simple "save the world" mecha story evolves into a shocking and powerful psychological drama full of conspiracy, dysfunctional characters, and some of the most harrowingly emotional and painful fight scenes ever. Don't let the first several episodes fool you- they're entertaining enough, but the power of the series remains hidden.
When I popped in the first video, I was excited to see a new anime, but otherwise pretty relaxed. By the end of episode 18 or so, my heart was racing, and I was nearly in tears. It never let up after that. This is not just an anime. This is an experience.
