The article explores the anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion” (1995–1996). The work is considered as a cultural product that is within the science fiction tradition of the second half of the twentieth century. The article shows how the series weaves together elements of Shinto and Abrahamic religious traditions as equally relevant. Through the use of religious topics, the science fiction work acquires an inner cognitive logic. The religious in the series is represented on two levels: an implicit one that defines the plot’s originality, and also an explicit one, in which references to religious matters become a marketing tool aimed at Japanese and Western media markets. To grasp the sometimes controversial and incoherent religious symbols, the author proposes to use a postsecular framework of analysis and the elements of a postmodern philosophy of culture. The author then proposes an analysis of the show’s narrative using the religious theme of apocalypse.
