>Evangelion was never about gigant fighting robots

Having into account the last OVA, discuss
>>
There were OVAs for Eva?
>>
>>102203254
Op is either referring to the end of evangelion, or the shitty remakes.

Anyway, the answer to the question is that Evangelion was always about half-baked plots and nonsensical christian symbolism. Fighting robots just happened to be involved
>>
Nope, it is about giant fighting people like things, who hold human souls, and are clad in armour with batteries in them.

Nothing to do with giant fighting robots.
>>
Somebody hasn't read ANIMA, which finally puts the focus on the Evangelions. I really wish that got an animated adaptation.

as if Mari is not already bad enough, you want loli catgirl Mari?

The question is a complete pointless one. Evangelion is what it is, giant robots and Shinji's quest for self-approval all in one mix.

Rebuild is Anno masturbating using Evangelion.
>>
>>102203476
But it's not about that at all, it's primarily a character driven story.

NG Evangelion is all about delicious Mind Rape, and seeing the entire cast slowly descent into madness and despair.

Rebuild ended up losing some of the series appeal, specially after 3.0. Still, Anno has managed to fuck with Shinji's mind even harder than in the original series, so I'm actually interested in knowing what will happen with him next... Even though my expectations are pretty low at this point.

Why is there a loli nekomimi Mari in Anima?
>>
>>102211750
The rule in Anime is "Why not?", and if the answer is "Because it would be silly" it gets added in the story
>>
>>102212092
Was Mari created for Anima and then bled into Rebuild?
>>
>>102212238
No, Mari was created for Rebuild and then Anima made the loli catgirl, which funny enough, has more characterization than the Rebuild counterpart.

Nah, it's just the ANIMA version of Mari

>Mari - EVA pilot from Nerv USA. A girl who is at the same age as Rei No Six. She was created by US from merger of various animal genes and she has cat's ears (nekomimi) under her headset (she still has human ears too). Occasionally she shows inexplicable behavior like saying she is together with a group of creatures that are merged together. Rei No Six, who loves animals, commented "I envy her."

maybe a tower shield too

To be fair the Unit 01 sword was thought up in original concepts for NGE and has just been recycled by everything but the series.

Who cares? As long as it looks great in action and is animated well then I'm cool with it. Remember for Gundam 00 when the design for Gundam Exia was first revealed and everyone hated it at first, but after seeing it in action everyone fucking loves Exia now? I can see something like this happening.

Hey I actually watched 00.
I don't think the Exia was something special combat-wise, but I was OK with the designs.

Not really a fan of the 00 designs, I'm more a fan of the grittier old OVA designs in terms of look and feel.

The plastic look of the new stuff doesn't really appeal to me.

I actually have an unassembled Tieren tho..... and I never buy shit like this! Which I guess why it's unassembled.... heh

But Rei really should have a proper, REAL sword with two edges and not that shitty katana crap.

Exia's fights were pretty mediocre aside from Exia Repair.

00's fights in general were pretty whatever. Dynames vs Throne Zwei was the best out of it all.

If you want good fights, watch V Gundam.

Isn't there a manga set in an alternative universe where the cast aren't mentally traumatized people and it's just Shinji trying to save the world by fighting giant monsters?

But that won't stop me from bitching about it
