Manga, anime series and a movie by Gainax.

It takes place in near future (year 2015) and describes war between humanity and Angels.

When first aired in Japan at a time slot intended for teenagers, it was not spectacularly popular. However, when aired again at a showing more reasonable for adults, its popularity exploded and allowed many adults to rekindle an interest in anime. The anime was and continues to be a strong influence on anime shows in general.
