Episodes[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Episode:Index
Each episode has both a Japanese title (shown at the beginning of each episode) and an English title (displayed in the mid-episode eyecatches). Like the title Neon Genesis Evangelion, the English episode titles were created by Gainax, not the show's English-language dub producer, ADV Films. However, ADV's subtitles provided English translations for the Japanese titles.
Some of the Japanese episode titles were also used as the titles of volumes of the manga by Sadamoto. These include episode 1 (book 1), episode 8 (book 4), episode 17 (book 6), episode 19 (book 7) and episode 23 (book 10).

- Main article: Red Cross Book
The End of Evangelion theatrical pamphlet (nicknamed the "Red Cross Book" by overseas fans) was a limited edition supplementary booklet distributed in Japanese theaters during The End of Evangelion's initial run. The contents of the book described many areas of the Evangelion storyline that the series left unclear. It is GAINAX-sanctioned, and thus considered canon.
Der Mond and Die Sterne[edit | edit source]
These are artbooks published by Gainax through Kadokawa Shoten. They include various artwork, although only a few are cells from the original animation. The titles are in German and respectively translate to "The Moon" and "The Stars."
Der Mond is dedicated to art by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto and features many renditions of Evangelion characters as well as concept artworks and character designs and notes from Sadamoto about the art. It also features artwork from other Sadamoto projects. Die Sterne has a more broad focus, including a variety of Evangelion themed artwork that appeared in other media or on various products such as model kit boxes or calendars. Many of the images that are not promotional art for the anime are pieces of artwork from other popular Japanese animators and manga artists that were created following the series' success, and other works by Sadamoto (such as Nadia, or Fatal Fury 2). It includes a section of art by Sadamoto and has been rereleased as Die Sterne Ver. 2.0.
2015//The Last Year of Ryoji Kaji[edit | edit source]
Published in 1997 through Newtype, this rare combination photo/text book profiles Ryōji Kaji via 16 "documents" left by him. These letters, notes, and poems provide some additional insight into Kaji's character. The photographic portion is meant to represent pictures taken by Kaji during his mission, and features digitally-altered pictures, which include the EVAs, Angels, and other series-related objects. The text is written by TV series screenwriter Hiroshi Yamaguchi, and the photographs were taken by Ichiro Kamei. Despite being a limited edition Japan-only publication, some of the text is in English.
Groundwork of Evangelion[edit | edit source]
