Neon Genesis Evangelion made history and after many years of theories, some of which are still alive, the saga has seen its seemingly final conclusion a second time. In fact, the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy ends with the film Evangelion 3.0 + 1.01, which is available on Amazon Prime Video.

The work stays in the hearts of many fans, with the younger mangakas certainly being influenced by the work of Hideaki Anno. Even those with a few years left on their shoulders have celebrated Evangelion over time, creating drawings and fan art of some depth. In this list there is Takeshi Obata, Mangaka known for being very famous all over the world including Hikaru no Go, Death report and Bakuman and who recently completed work on the Platinum End with his longtime colleague Tsugumi Ohba.

Obata drew an illustration on the theme of Neon Genesis Evangelion with his usual style, with the protagonists being Rei Ayanami and Kaworu Nagisa. Below we see the extraordinary fanart that also jumped onto Reddit. In a desolate landscape, the two characters with Rei stand closest to the viewer. The girl looks into the distance with a listless look and with many bandages around her body; behind him is instead a Kaworu Nagisa in a thinking pose, with darker hair than we are used to.

The two of them are also there again in the last film: How is the end of Evangelion to be interpreted?
