For the version of "Fly Me To The Moon" used in the final episode, director Hideaki Anno reportedly asked singer Megumi Hayashibara (who also voices Rei Ayanami, Yui Ikari, and Pen-Pen in the show) to perform the song while imagining herself "strangling a little cat with a big smile on [her] face."

Several of the appearances of EVAS, the size of the robots in terms of the proportion of the stage, constantly changing. In some cases show a height of about 83 feet, when Evas are in the HQ this size is reduced to 65 feet, then appear as large as a fourteen-store building. See more »

The Director's cuts. Look out SPOILERS: Episode 21:
Before the opening, and in a way very similar to the movie Death, this scene, where the 2nd Impact is reported.
Fuyutsuki living on houseboat: UN agent invites him to join Antarctica expedition to research 2nd Impact.
When Fuyutsuki talks about the mysteries around the 2nd Impact, some still images and dialog are added.
After this, appears a new scene: when Fuyutsuki is going to confront Gendo regarding the truth of 2nd Impact, he sees Yui on steps of the institute.
Yui and Fuyutsuki under a tree with baby Shinji.
In the traditional 21st episode, when Naoko Akagi is referring to Yui's death, some flash images are showed. Now in the revised edition, this images are replaced for a single one (at right).
Added dialogue when Kaji frees Fuyutsuki from SEELE.
Improved animation when Kaji dies.
Some scenes are added (but weren't made on purpose for the revised 21st episode) before the famous scene between Misato and her telephone.
The series starts out ok, but as it goes on I was growing less and less sympathetic for most of the characters in this series. The show uses a lot of meaningless religious symbolism to distract you from the real story going on here, a whiney teen just looking for some place to belong.
As the series progressed I just grew to hate this show more and more. And then I thought the end was just the suckyest thing I have ever seen. To those that liked this series, fine you're entitled to that opinion. But you're out of your mind to think that every one will like this series, and even more of an egotist to think every one should see this series.
I can not recommend Evangelion to any one, and if you want to watch it, I can't guarantee you will like it. If you want to watch a great Mecha anime series watch anything of Gundam. But if you like pychobabble type anime this one is for you.
