Why is this shit so highly regarded? I put off watching it for so long and now I'm on episode 21 and it keeps getting worse and worse. I do not like a single character. At the very least I do not care for them, at worst I hate them. The plot is not engaging or interesting and I find myself not caring about who, what, when, where or why regarding what the fuck Evas are and what Gendou's goals are. I thought maybe it could redeem itself, but I continue getting closer to the end and it just gets worse.

I've had characters like Rei and Asuka in my mind for many years, because people have been posting them fucking everywhere for a long time. Then I see them in motion and think "that's it?".

I haven't watched any mecha anime so I can't comment on genre deconstruction, but from my point of view it is an average series.

Why have people talked about this for close to 20 years.

okay

So you're in the half that hates Eva. That's fine. Everyone either loves it or hates it. I've only encountered one person in my entire life both in person and on the internet that was neutral on the series.

I can't imagine anyone liking this turd. If Shinji eventually grew a backbone or had character development beyond "WHY ISN'T IT OKAY TO RUN AWAY FROM PAINFUL THINGS?!" I might be less disappointed, but Shinji is such a shitty character that he drags the whole thing down to the abyss.

Maybe you should, I dunno, finish watxhing a show before trying to comment on it? Is that really so hard of a concept to grasp?
And remember, EoE is part of the show.

Because it has everything, sex, violence, classical music, apocalypses, giant robots, etc.

I'm gonna marathon through the rest of this turd tonight, but what I've grasped over the years is that the ending to Evangelion is incomprehensible and shitty so I don't have high expectations.

>I don't like him therefore he is a bad character
You have an inability to empathize with people who aren't like you.

shinji wants to get close to people

but he doesn't know how and he makes mistakes
this is caused by a general lack of understanding on his part of the people around him

hilarity ensues

There's not much animation, but it's definitely not incomprehensible. On the contrary, it's pretty easy to understand, since they straight up tell you what it's supposed to mean.

Yeah, and you better watch The End of Evangelion, 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0, before coming back here and reposting your shitty ass opinion. It'll make it less annoying than "HURRRR I HAV NOT FINISH THE SERIES BUT I HATE SHONJI AND Y DOES ERVYONE LIKE THIS BAWWW!'

Fucking faggot. Yes, I'm mad. Evangelion is my favorite anime series.

Pretty much this, its alright /a/non but if you think Shinji needs to "grow a backbone" you missed the premise entirely and are totally fucked.

Imagine that your deadbeat relative who you only know to be an unreliable dick calls you up one day to guilt trip you with the death of some chick you don't know if you don't pilot a piece of machinery you have no fucking knowledge of that is literally torture everytime you use it and if you fuck up EVERYONE DIES. Now you're Shinji. Congratulations!

Your main problem is this: I haven't watched any mecha anime so I can't comment on genre deconstruction


EVA dropped in a time where the only series to have the sheer stones to go against the: "Wow, I can have this giant robot AND SHOOT STUFF" was Gundam and only occasionally with gems like Stardust Memories. Having a new fresh series tread such unfamiliar territory was a breath of fresh air and showed other series that they could take risks like never before on terrible budgets

Make it two then. It's an ambitious series and I like the way it turns Anno's memories of classic anime into both a compelling SF backdrop and well-developed metaphor but the amateur psychoanalysis is grating and pretentious. Definitely memorable but not great or even that good

WAIT A SEC

OP's picture got me thinking..In EoE we see Unit 1 wield two spears of the same shape when he bursts out of Lilith's eye. Didn't it use that to restore the world at the end of the movie? Well it didn't really restore it, but it did something. In 3.0, Unit 13 uses two different spears, which....I guess do the opposite.

Huh, never saw that connection. Maybe Kaworu really is a looper, and that's how he initially came up with the plan to use spears to restore the earth.
