John K hates the mecha design in NGE because the designs aren't simple enough to be memorable
Do you agree with him?
>>
>>100625947
I always agree with the creator of Ren and Stimpy, even when he's wrong.
>>
You got a source on that biff?
>>
>implying mecha designs in general are memorable/distinct from one another

Eva's probably one of the standouts, actually.
>>
Purple, has a horn-chin and shark jaws
Red, 4 eyes and a bunch of weapons
White/blue, one eye, piloted by an autist

In your face, John K.

He is good but hardly the best animator of all time, and his severe autism discredits most of his rantings.
Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, or Ralph Bakshi are more worthy of that title.

When your show is popular enough to be one of the definitive shows in its genre people assume they know everything about it without having watched it.

Its unlikely most people who complain about the EVA design knows they aren't robots.

Who the fuck is John K and why should I care what they think?

>>100627121
he created ren and stimpy

He totally should. He doesn't like how prude america is

He said:
>This last one isn't too impressive color wise but it just goes to show you how Japanese artists know what the public wants and are not stingy at giving it to us whereas stupid evil conservative modern Americans refuse to give humans natural things that humans like.

Units 01 and 02 are the ones I'll definitely remember. 00 is not very memorable.

I know I'll sure as hell remember those MP evas though.

What John K? John K Peta?

>>100627391
He's somewhat right though. Asian culture tends to be less expressive then Americans.

I get this point in general. It's like how the most iconic characters can usually be identified by their silhouettes (batman, for example). But he's just wrong as a matter of fact: the evangelions ARE all memorable.

Gaijin mechas can be pretty cool, too.
>>
>>100625947
technically accurate, but it's like judging a perfectly cooked porterhouse steak "bad" for not being an apple pie.

The design is busy, but that's intended to reflect a certain realism. Machinery is complex. Even something as deliberately streamlined and simplified on the surface like a station wagon is still a busy, jumbled mess compared to a "12 lines is too complex" cartoon character.

As a result, the design isn't iconic in itself but moments and profiles. It's more like a superhero design. Superman's hair, boots, and belt might change. The shape of the shield or S logo might evolve. Batman can be as complex as you want. It's the movement and key elements that form the memories.

For Eva 01? key elements are as follows: Purple. Rage. Teeth.

Any mecha that includes those elements is a deliberate homage, just as surely as a flying man in a cape with a shield logo on his chest is a Superman pastiche.

The legs are poorly designed. Better to use some sort of raptor legs with a large angle between the legs with a hydraulic link somehow joining the thigh to the calf or the lower-back to the calf or ankle. It doesn't look pretty, but I bet if you calculate everything out in a dimensionless fashion, it would all work well enough -and- it would be easier to assemble.

Why doesn't our military use giant mechas?

Ugh, I like his art style, but most of his content just goes too far for me.
>Always vomiting
>Occasionally farting and shit
>Smegma eating and play
>Messing with ovaries
>Commenting on terrible stenches and always bringing up the nasty stuff about sex
>Dick is always the size of an arm
>Most of the time, the girl is forced into it or ends up regretting it halfway through
>Somehow totally fine afterwards, even if she should be dead from the experience

I mean, I guess I like the watersports.

>>100633891
Why would they? Tanks cover everything a mecha could do, and are tougher, cheaper, smaller, faster and cooler.

didn't he create rim and stanky or some shit

>>100626390
thing is, the whole idea of the eva designs is not to look like a mech besides a few key points
they are biological and all just overgrown humans in armor
they are also supposed to look like monsters when they go beserk
