A lot of people say RahXephon is a lot like Evangelion, you might like it. I ended up liking it more than Evangelion.

If you want something that's seriously thought provoking, try Serial Experiments Lain. Shamelessly stolen from the back of the first DVD: "There is the world around us, a world of people, tactile sensation, and culture. There is the wired world, inside the computer, of images, personalities, virtual experiences, and a culture all of its own. The day after a classmate commits suicide, Lain, a thirteen year-old girl, discovers how closely the two worlds are linked when she receives an e-mail from the dead girl: "I just abandoned my body. I still live here...""

In a completely different direction, you may want to try Planet ES, its not as thought provoking or as controversial as Neon Genesis, but it brings up some rather important things that will have to be thought about in the future. It also deals with the motivation behind terrorism, and extremism. And its got some good comedy thrown in along with a great romance aspect, the series does not end they way you would expect from the beginning. You may hate the characters after the first ep or two but give them time, they will not disappoint. They really grow on you. Clearly I enjoyed this more than evangelion as I haven't even finished evangelion but I watched Planet ES in two days.
