Meme tier arguments aside, why there are people who genuinelly think Evangelion is a bad series? I can understand why some people can't enjoy it: some aren't just clever enough, but find it bad is retarded.
>>
>>135634967
I can't call Eva bad, I simply can't enjoy watching it.
>>
>>135634967
I think that the people that argue that it is bad usually missed out on a lot of the story. From an objective standpoint there's not really anything significantly wrong with this series, and this is coming from someone who rarely enjoys mecha as much as any other given genre. Also Asuka a cute
>>
Its not bad by any means, but I found the psychological dribble really dull and uninteresting.
However, I really enjoyed the mecha shit in it. The designs were sleek, the AT fields were interesting, and the sense of weight they had was awesome.
If it was just another MotW show, it could have been one of my favorites.
>>
Symbolism for the sake of symbolism
It comes off as much deeper than what it is (the fanbase aside it still presents itself that way)
Incredibly uninteresting characters
Repeating the same mini-arc of Shinji not being a shit over and over again
An ending that is just a clusterfuck of imagery with no real coherence
>>
>>135635125
The ending is something that I will concede. Despite finding the series to be very good I was dissatisfied with the ending, for reasons more than just not enjoying it.
>>
As someone who didn't enjoy it the first time I watched it, I'd say it was because I wasn't paying attention to the character's emotions as a part of the story and I was just waiting for cool stuff to happen. Then that fucking 2 episode ending happened and just left me weirded out.

The second time after having watched at least 30 different anime series I was more ready, everything about it was beautiful.
>>
>>135635186
I didn't really care for it at all. I finished just because it's something that kind of made anime what it is today, and I know it's one of the first big shows that popularized the idea of a waifu with Asuka and Rei, and there's a lot from it that's referenced in anime that comes later. After spending years hearing about how it was so great, I was incredibly disappointed, and I'm probably a lot harder on it than I should be.

That said, I have a co-worker who is legit one of those guys. "Once you watch Eva, nothing else even compares, man. Almost no point in watching any other anime" fucking verbatum
>>
>>135634967
A lot of the execution is pretty bad.
>>
>>135635331
Narrative especially. Love it anyway.
>>
>>135635331
In what way?
>>
>>135635316
I too watched the series after having heard for a long time that it was magnificent beyond compare, and therefore I tried to make myself cognizant that I shouldn't hold it too stringently to the standards of others. However I cannot stand people who say that exact line "[...] almost no point in watching any other anime." I will never understand that. I don't know if this is just me but when I see a fantastic anime it makes me want to keep watching more to find others that I will enjoy just as much if not more. Is your co-worker also one of those people that refuses to watch anything made after 1999? Because I've found that those two categories typically go hand in hand.
>>
>>135635331
Would you mind elaborating on that?
>>
>>135635471
>>135635516
Using uninteresting and cliche infodumps to explain the mechanics of the Evas and other lore, using edgy imagery to reveal a character's oh so dark past, the reveal of Asuka seeing her mother commit suicide was just godawful and generic, I remember bursting out laughing at how ridiculous it was.
A lot of scenes were try hard in getting you to sympathize with the characters, but there were also some subtle moments that were good.
It was a mixed bag really, but overall the execution was the biggest flaw I would say.
>>
>>135635660
>a lot of scenes were try hard in getting you to sympathize with the characters

That's an interesting prerogative--it never came across that way to me. I viewed it from more of an observational standpoint in that each character's emotions and behaviors were being explained.
>>
>>135635660
>Using uninteresting and cliche infodumps to explain the mechanics of the Evas and other lore

You are reffering to what? The two recap episodes? Because Eva mechanics are never explained past "it just werks"

>using edgy imagery to reveal a character's oh so dark past, the reveal of Asuka seeing her mother commit suicide was just godawful and generic

Except that actually happened, her walking in on her dead mother. It's not imagery it's the events that unfolded

>I remember bursting out laughing at how ridiculous it was

Don't cut yourself on all that edge bro
>>
>>135635822
This was just my experience with the show, I know others will feel differently.

>>135635940
The Asuka scene just came off edgy to me, I couldn't help but laugh.
>>
>>135634967
Because it's fundamentally silly, mostly.
>he pilots giant robots
>but get this
>he's also still in high school
>and his dad is in charge of the giant robot program

>>
>>135635013
Same. I think it's the characters and the way they interact with each other, it seems "off" in a way that doesn't pull me in.
And a lot of the material is sorta boring, I would've cut a lot of it if it were up to me.
But I can't deny that it's a well thought-out show.
>>
>>135636000
I think that the pleading for sympathy argument was valid, although I don't personally see how the suicide of Asuka's mother was edgy--it would have been edgy if Asuka responded by painting her Eva black.
>>
>>135636000
>The Asuka scene just came off edgy to me
It's a shocking scene and it's supposed to be shocking because this event fucked her up for life. You can't play down the scene because it would emphasise how important this event was.
>>
>>135636053
>I don't like fiction
Why watch anime then?

Also, judging a book by it's cover.

Is Eva your first mecha anime?
>>
>>135636115
>I think that the pleading for sympathy argument was valid
It would be valid if the show didn't call out it's characters for doing it.
>>
>>135636053
Isn't the glaringly fictitious plot one of the series' draws?
>>
>>135636185
I suppose valid was the wrong word for me to use there. What I meant was that I can understand why anon brought up that point, albeit I personally did not agree with it.
>>
>>135636135
Neither the story of the characters were enjoyable enough to keep me watching. If the series relies on me liking the subgenre to be watchable, that's just not good enough.

If you want to be good, you have to be good despite all the tropes and cliches, and not rely on them to paper over weak fundamentals. There is plenty of anime I like that manages this.
>>
>>135634967
the first several episodes were boring and pretty awful
>>
>>135636115
>>135636122
There are better ways to execute such a scene.
Having Asuka run screaming mom and how she doesn't need dad or anything now that she can pilot Eva and be worth something, and then immediately after open the door and see her mom hung herself, I don't know, it just came across as something I'd see in some edgy middleschool kid's fanfic.
Tasteless would be the best word to describe it, I guess. I laughed because there was no tact in it, it was so generic and blunt. I don't see how someone could be shocked by something so juvenile.
>>
>>135634967
It's not a bad anime. Anyone that says so has some kind of problem.
I think the main issue is that in the years since we've been bombarded by psychological thrillers and "wow so deep" kind of stuff (and not just in anime) that it has lost value.

You haven't watched the show did you.

Because saying Eva relies on cliche is some of the dumbest shit I have ever read
>>

The main character is not easy to relate to, for me at least. He is a sniveling, pathetic pussy. But I guess since a lot of you beta fags in /a/ are similar to Shinji, you can relate to him, and enjoy the show.

I personally do not feel that relation is required to enjoy a particular series. With Eva in particular, I enjoyed the series from a purely observational standpoint.

>There are better ways to execute such a scene.
Like what? Just seeing her body in the morgue with narration that she killed herself?

It simply wouldn't hold the same impact, it needs to be shocking because this event changed Asuka's life permanently
>>
They're just not intelligent enough to enjoy it. It's the same with atheists being unable to enjoy religious ideas.
>>
>>135636383
I hoped they were cliches, because at least then there would be an excuse. So you're saying it's just generally nonsensical?
>>135636186
Not all aspects of it. The concept is good, but the execution is nonsense. So there's this kid, right, and there's only two or three like him, and they are the only ones that can drive huge mecha that are the only way to stop giant alien biomecha... Yet in the third episode, he just quits the program. Just like that. If they need you to save the world, they won't let you just walk off, I'd think. And more things like that.

It's all just so they can have a character high-school loners can identity with still be "realistically" piloting a giant mecha. Cut me a fucking break.
>>
>>135636293
>Neither the story of the characters were enjoyable enough to keep me watching.
>story of the characters
That sounds wrong, it's not the story but their personalities in context to the story that's supposed to be interesting. If you don't like NGE because you think it's silly you focus on the wrong thing. Shinji getting in the fucking robot isn't the conflict that's supposed to be interesting (we'll it is superficially I guess), it's his internal struggle.

>you have to be good despite all the tropes and cliches

>implying NGE relies on cliches
>>
>>135636432
For one, make sure Asuka's voice actor doesn't have such overdramatized acting like she's in some fucking soap opera.

>>135636453
I understand it's supposed to be shocking, but the best scenes in the series were always the ones you least expected (like Eva 01 going beserk and eating that angel like a human) and the most subtle ones (Shinji always opening and closing his hand told a lot about his character)
Scenes like this that were so blunt had no creativity to them. They were expected and they're cliche.
Explaining away a character's depth and complexity by giving her a backstory of seeing her mom kill herself is expected. It's unoriginal and edgy.
Therefore, it struck a laugh out of me.

How does this make it bad? Just means you didn't like them, not that they were bad characters.

Come again? Symbolism for the sake of symbolism as in the religious shenanigans? That's got nothing to do with the actual story but just something Anno thought would look and sound cool. The symbolism with actual weight was actually very well done.

Then don't make it a giant robot series, maybe? Just do another high school series. Or make him an actual child soldier or something, if it needs to be really edgy.
>>
>>135636592
It's stupid and crazy to let him go, Ritsuko's brainwashing suggestion is totally reasonable for the stakes, but that is his dad in charge. And it's thematically important that Shinji isn't actually forced, choices he makes unconsciously come up when the show goes into his head.
>>
Congratulations!

>>135636801
>just go with another high school series

But that's one of Eva's greatest strengths, that it /isn't/ just another high school series, it incorporates internal conflict into mecha.
>>
It was okay but it was far from being my favorite show of all time. I have no clue why /a/ shills this show so fucking hard all the time.
>>
>>135636801
>Or make him an actual child soldier or something
He is one, your squirl-like attention span just prevented you from actually watching the show and finding it out

His phone is tapped
He is under NERV surveliance 24/7
He has a handler
The school is a NERV front

The only reason why they don't torture him in order to get him to pilot is because of the mechanics of Eva piloting

This is one complaint about Eva that I agree with (granted it's not really a complaint with the anime, it's a complaint with the fan base). I think that Eva is overrated, as in I have seen tons of better anime (objectively and subjectively), but still very good.
>>
>>135637038
He used it correctly
>>
>>135636789
It's from a different culture, that makes such things stand out harsher. I'm a normie, I expect more from anime than I do from art that has memes and cultural cues I fully understand. It has to be so good I no longer mind all the Japanese-ness, I guess.

Planetes did that well, for example.
>>135636711
I'll probably watch it in full at some point, but it's not in my top shelf.

Okay, but let you ask you this: if NGE was groundbreaking, which series managed to do it better since?

It would be odd if in what, 20 years, no-one could do it better.
>>
>>135636749
Still, it was generic and inferior compared to other similar scenes in the show.
Kid Misato seeing her father save her and give her the cross, Kid Shinji being abandoned by Gendo, were both very very good scenes.
Asuka's just doesn't compare, it seems try hard.
>>
>>135636801
Because if you take away the high stakes and pressure it will seem even more pretentious.
NGE and it's fucked up characters work because of the extrem situation they are in. Take away the Mecha element and the fight for humanities survival and it will be like SAO, a bunch of retards taking unimportant stuff far to serious.

Also the fights provide action making it more entertaining and less dry.

>>135637152
Good argument.

Are you joking?

it's boring as fuck

I remember being 14 episodes in and it was still

>new angel comes
> Shinji! We need your help!
> Shinji is a pussy, and the other two girls are just tropes
>use some science/military plan that Misato comes up with to defeat angel
>some blaringly empty psychological drivel at the end of the episode

It did that for 14 fucking episodes without any other developments. You learned that Misato's dad died during the first big even thing. That's it. I got bored and gave up on the whole thing.

>>135637068
No he didn't. A fanbase praising an already successful and popular product constantly is not shilling.

What about the characters phychology, the music or the designs?

Also
>dropping NGE
>>
>>135637288

Shinji becoming more confident and expressive (he stops complaining after episode 6 after interaction with Rei and doesn't really do it once until ten episodes later), then regressing to piloting Eva for his father's approval, Misato becoming more disillusioned with NERV and less complacent, fleshing out Ritsuko's character, Rei's character development, introduction of Asuka that changes the tone of the series, and so on.

You're an idiot.
>>
>>135637216
Maybe it's enjoyable if I just look at it like that, I'll give it a try, and have bookmarked the recommendation.
>>
>>135637435
If it's not interesting after 14 episodes, I'm not gonna watch the other 12 or whatever. At that point you're disqualified.

Characters:
Shinji: annoying as fuck to watch hes a giant pussy and everyone here has already talked about his flaws
Rei and Asuka: Waifu flavors (one is a bitch who is loud and obnoxious, and one is a bitch who is unfeeling). Neither are likeable
Scientist chick: Cunt to everyone
Misato's ex: Kind of a weirdo but whatever
Misato: Only good character
Shinjis dad: walking stereotype of a dickhead dad that for some reason Rei likes but they never touched on in 14 EPISODES

Music: Opening is good, nothing else was that stand=out
The psychology: Makes no sense, as does most of japanese translated stuff that they try to play off as deep. All I ever saw was a bunch of visuals.

The designs: EVAs look sweet, other than that not much is remarkable.

Not enough to make me finish it
>>
>>135637606
>not listing Pen Pen in that list

>>135637090
Yeah. Outside of design, the characters aren't very interesting. Shinji is extremely unlikeable, and hurts my interest in the series when the protagonist is annoying and a genuinely bad character. There are too many plot holes too, which might not be a big deal to some but it is to me.

Episode 5. They even repeat a monologue at the end in case there was idiots watching.

I know I'm gonna get a lot of shit for this but Eva really wasn't as good as OP. It's basically just super pretentious and relies too much on pointless symbolism to carry it's nonexistent story. I hear a lot of people talk endlessly about some deep lore that exists in the Eva universe but I saw none of that while watching.

Meanwhile a completely unassuming show like One Piece delivers on every front where Evangelion fails, despite of or maybe even due to its accessibility. If anything, One Piece is a litmus test for anime as a whole while Evangelion is more like an age test. It'll appeal to a very specific, sci-fi demographic of anime fan that simply doesn't exist anymore while One Piece is generally the better anime and has a very wide appeal.

Good to hear.
Imo it's also really important not to go into NGE expecting the best anime evaaar everyone and their mom has been taking about.

>>135637606
You just don't get it.
Ok, memes aside.
You seem to misunderstand what NGE is about. In the first place it's a drama, the action is not supposed to be the focuse, it's there to provide superficial entertainment and conflict.
Shinji is weak, but that doesn't make him a bad character. NGE is a coming of age story and it's about Shinji being confronted with a harsh reality. What do you understand about him?
Rei and Asuka are not just waifu bait. The anime that came after NGE took and simplified them to stereotypes.
Scientist chick is a fucking side character and she's not a cunt she's doing her job in case you didn't understand that. She gets more focus later on.
How is Gendo a stereotype? Aside from the, "father of mc is important military guy" I don't see it. 14 episodes, so what, that's half the anime of course there's some stuff left open.

Your citisicm is pretty stupid and superficial.

It's no where near as deep or even as serious as it presents itself. And both the show ending and EOE are just atrociously put together. Shock imagery for the sake of shock imagery, no rhyme or reason for any of it and they intentionally try to confuse viewers with their hour long speeches about human nature.

The way One Piece is written is meant to invite new fans of all ages. You can start reading it at any point and it is instantly a satisfying experience, then you can go back to the beginning when it's convenient to further enrich the story and your appreciation for the characters' journey. It's only completionist obsessed 'nerds' that feel 'intimidated'.

>>135638154
The problem is that your experience of the anime fandom is probably extremely insular. Once you leave the more toxic, circle jerking communities you will see just how insignificant and dated the sci-fi anime fandom has become.

While I hesitate to call my opinion a fact, as all opinions regardless of how any other individuals feel indeed have a great deal of merit, I'm not seeing anything factual wrong with what I'm saying. One Piece is the future of anime while the neo-otaku wave of Evangelion fans is the past, and that's GOOD thing.

Eva has a bunch of legitimate flaws like bludgeoning you over the head with a point when it's already clear (it's remarkably subtle at times despite that), but people weaned on anime don't see them as such since they watch absolute schlock, turning to alleged plot holes, "Shinji's a pussy" or lack of progression, and just don't pay attention enough to gleam character development that's made apparent through dialogue. Eva is likely the best TV anime ever.

>>135638057

Nonsense. Anyone caught up in the "lore" of NGE is an idiot.

>>135638065
>she remembered how he opened the hatch to save her

It wasn't forgotten, you simpleton.

She remembers Gendo saving her because it's similar to Shinji's worry. Despite being friendly with Gendo, Rei doesn't entirely understand her own feelings and that's why she didn't know what to do in the situation. When Shinji suggests smiling, she recalls Gendo saving her and does so. She begins to question her attachment to Gendo later on and her role as an EVA pilot. We're made of her relationship with Gendo, her feelings about piloting EVA (which influences Shinji and helps him "man up"), seemingly lack of humanity and lack of fear of death. These are things we had no clue about before episode 5.

>>135638354
>Shock imagery for the sake of shock imagery, no rhyme or reason for any of it and they intentionally try to confuse viewers with their hour long speeches about human nature.

Bullshit. If Eva confused you, consider finishing high school level.

Anime in general is not a big profit industry. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Sunrise does well because their shows are primarily meant to advertise their toys, no? Pokemon has a very similar business model. I'm not sure it's correct to use a show's profit margins as an indication of its appeal, especially when it aims for such a narrow and fanatical base of viewers.

NGE is like Dark Souls.
It doesn's directly tell you the story, you have to play attention and think about it yourself.
It's like poetry. At first you don't understand why Shinji understand why Shinji sees a crazy Rei when he's inside of Unit 00 but when you finish EoE and learn that there are souls inside the Evas and that Rei is a clone and has an artificial soul it makes sense and is intelectually more challenging then One Piece could ever be.

>>135638370
Honestly, just finish the damn thing.
You say you want to learn more and get answers but drop it after 14 episodes, how stupid is that.
Of course they aren't going to answer it early on. And they won't answer in directly, but just dropping it is the opposite of what you want.

Any form of criticism you have against Eva is invalid by the fact that you haven't finished it.

And if you have finished NGE and watched End of Evangelion you can come back to /a/.

These are probably the worst descriptions of their characterization I've ever seen. It's like you haven't even watched it and you're describing them based on what you've learned from /a/; especially considering you describe Asuka and Rei as "waifu flavor".

This is proof that the worst kind of person that hates Eva is the kind that barely pays attention to it, drops it halfway and then shitposts on /a/ pretending to understand its flaws. At least the people who actually finished it and disliked it TRY to fucking understand what was happening and can actually make some valid points about why they didn't like it and its characters.

Considering that you're a complete fucking idiot, I'm not even going to bother say you should finished watching. You're going to have this shitty mindset the entire time and completely misinterpret the meaning of every single character with some meaningless, superficial description anyway.

Not him but the German girl (and pilot of unit 2) is much older than 14, even though the pilots supposedly were required to be 14 (is said so in the 1st episode), she has graduated high-school and her government handler seems to have no issues about her sexually coming onto him (showing that she is much older than 14). Also, in her flashbacks to when her mother has gone insane, both her mother and herself are speaking Japanese even though she is living in Germany.

Another reason why it acts as a very poor litmus test for anime as a whole. It's needlessly obtuse with very little pay off. It's like Star Trek fans memorizing the schematics for The Starship Enterprise then figuring out the maximum speed of a turbolift. I imagine doing that would be very hard, maybe even an intellectual challenge, but it should be completely necessary for appreciating the show.

>>135638838
The sales of physical media was really just a tiny blip in the history entertainment media. We are very quickly leaving that kind of niche behind, and as anime media modernizes it will become irrelevant. Streaming media with advertisement and merchandise was the past and it is quickly becoming the present.

Haven't watched NGE in a while but holy shit you are right, Yui literally appears in front of Shinji in episode 16. Stuff like pic related is why NGE is amazing.

>>135638924
Asuka is actually 13 when she first appears.
She graduated high-school because she's extremly good at school. In the Magma Diver episode she tells Shinji about thermal expansion and shit. Her grades suck when she's in japan because of muh stupid Kanjis though.

Kaiji is just that cool.

>>135638947
You can appreciate NGE without overanalyzing it though. It's a fight for the survival of mankind, kids in japan love it. Have you seen those videos where Anno teaches children about animation and they all love NGE?
And art being challenging isn't a bad thing. Maybe you just view anime as entertainment and use it as escapism but then you missed the point of NGE. It's both a mature and deep (feels like a buzzword, fuck you guys) story but also a cool action robot show.

It would be helpful if you stopped trying to classify One Piece as a 'pirate' show like 'pirate' is a genre and not a setting. One Piece is better categorized as a shonen, or fight manga, or adventure story. It's also amusing how you are trying to argue that One Piece isn't one of the biggest anime of all time? It certainly eclipses Evangelion at this point.

>>135639302
Without any extended analysis Evangelion just falls on its face. As a monster of the week robot show it's boring and the fights feel low budget at best. The only reason why it gets any attention is that people insist it's somehow a deep or psychological show, which it can be if you as a viewer fill in all the gaping holes the creators (either intentionally or unintentionally) left out. Either way it is not the sort of thing a good, let alone competent show, would do.

If you want to go down that road, the most prolific new "shonen" on the block is Toriko and that apes off DBZ, not One Piece

One Piece failed to materialize and real trend in the industry, hell Madoka or Code Geass had more of an impact. There was no renaissance of adventure anime, nor do any signs point to there being one.

I think by calling Eva "generic" you demonstrate a complete lack of understanding of the body of anime as a whole, and looking backwards from today at it since anything that wasn't trying to be generic just copied Eva for the last 20 years. OR you're one of these modern educations fuckwits who grossly over exaggerates everything you say to sound more serious or impactful.

It certainly wasn't original, even compared to just Anno's other works, but calling Eva "generic" is just plain stupid.

I don't like making assumptions about people but maybe you've been watching too much bad anime? Having very basic character interactions is just something fundamental to any narrative, it doesn't somehow make the shows focus psychological.

Go read any Dostoevsky novel, if might blow your mind. I bet he could convince you he was a psychologist with all the character interaction he writes.

>>135639730
Toriko has never and will never reach the heights of One Piece which has even surpassed DBZ, at least in the Japanese market. Globally who knows, I hear South Americans are still pretty crazy about DBZ.


Madok and Code Geass are extremely niche otaku shows, moreso even than Evangelion, to even make the comparison just shows your limited perspective. It's borderline delusional.

People always say Eva was shit visuel wise, just because they used some still shots. But even those were well placed and made the scenes more meaningful.

End of Evangelion is fucking amazing visually.

I liked it, character development could've been better. Would've loved to see some stronger feelings develop between shitji and Asuka. Also the second half of the tv series is much more interesting because it doesn't only include them fighting angels which there should've been less of imo.

Why are you so obsessed with industry, when the industry you are referring to is so small? At this point One Piece transcends industry, the power of its franchise and the quality and universality of its narrative reach far beyond anime otaku. School children, business men, and stay at home mothers alike buy, watch, and read One Piece every single week. To even think that a show like Madoka has anywhere close to that level of reach or influence is laughable. You're talking about sewage runoff causing ocean rise when entire continents of ice are dissolving. It's madness.

>hur dur Shinji is a pussy and everything is just pretentious and clique

Do you want those people browsing here?

Anyways, there is nothing wrong with dislinking Eva as long as you understand the show and why people like it and see the good point about it.

>>135640205
>but that's hardly enough to support an entire show.

That's why it has well written characters, great music that uses very well and an interesting story. There is symbolism that supports the shows themes and it's often pretty subtle even if it doesn't look that ways.
It actually makes a point and isn't just brainless entertainment.

It's also great sci-fi.

It is the single reason why Shueisha exists. If you want proof, go read their quarterly earnings reports.

People call Evangelion a sci-fi show for the sake of convenience but it is about as sci-fi as Star Wars. You say the characters are well written but by the standards of any other kind of fiction it's just standard fare, and I hate to keep hammering the same point over and over again but the symbolism is not only obtuse but adds nothing to the show unless you are a lore nerd.

You literally said, and I quote, "It's the single reason why Shueisha exists."

Shueisha has existed since 1925, officially formed in 1949. That makes it, at the youngest, 66 years old. Evangelion is 20 years old now. There's a 46 year gap between Evangelion's original air date and the formation of Shueisha. Perhaps YOU should be the one to think about what they're typing before actually doing so.

You just have to come to terms that people are stupid and have shit taste. I'm not even joking. This isn't the case of some people not liking it, which is fine. This is a case where some people just can't see its merits and over blow the shortcomings. Evangelion touched on some many things that it still impresses me whenever I go back and reacquaint myself with it. So that leaves one of two options: People are literally too stupid or not well versed in what NGE was talking about and so it comes over as garbage to them or they are willfully being asshts because they have shit taste. We just have to deal with it.

This really.

Asuka killing herself or at least trying to serves no point but to end her own existence.

Rei knows she's able to die and incur a replacement, and she has no alternative at that point, she does nothing and everyone dies. She kills herself + the angel, and everyone lives. Even Rei after some resurrection scheme.

Rei is more cool-headed than Asuka and can make those tough, calm calls.

It's good sci-fi for an anime at least and it's not doing much wrong in that aspect, it's not even the focus just one of the many things that make Eva up.

We are talking about anime though and for an anime the character depth is stunning. Even side characters like Ritsuko get some focus and development. The characters feel like real people with their own motivations, you can't say that about every anime.
Shinji has subtle development throughout the series.

Yes the cristian imagery may be pointless if you don't dig deep into it (it may be even if you do) but as I said earlier there is other symbolism in NGE.
For example Gendos glasses Rei keps, representing her loyalty and fondness of him.

Not him but it's the same guy. The Asukafag retard shitposter. He posts the same images, posts the same shit, and just got off ruining yet-another-eva-thread earlier.

He said something along the lines of "i will always defend my waifu from this and that".

It's the same fucking guy. These threads aren't frequented by that many, and his samefagging with his phone is obvious..

Maybe if you stopped treating Eva like vapping you'd stop seeing those memes.

The rabbit-hole can go as deep as someone can make it, but the selling point of Evangelion was that it touched subjects not really seen before on anime; even if those themes wouldn't blow the mind of anyone who took a philosophy class in highschool.

That said, it did gave us Rei so I'm eternally thankful for it.

Because a lot of people don't go to TV for "sad" or "real".

Evangelion is a sad, depressing show. It's characters are mostly bad people, with no one to clearly project into if you want to be the good hero. People equate not liking something to it being ba, or equate their feelings of the fandom to the show itself. Some people are just dumb, and only look at a surface level. Other people watch something and don't agree with the message or storytelling mechanics. And sometimes it just doesn't jive with you.

Fixing the children:

Shinji: relieve from eva duty.Talk to the kid, a lot. Engage him, honestly. Tell him you care about him and wish to help. Maybe, not kill his friends too often. Let's scrap that actually.

He will smoothen out. There's far worse children out there, they all insist it's not a 'phase', but then ten years later they cringe at that phase they had.

He's an OK kid all things considered.

Rei: Relieve from EVA duty. Even though she handles it well enough so that it is not a problem, children shouldn't be piloting these machines.
Provide familial, genuine warmth. Don't be afraid to ask her to elaborate on what she thinks and feels, even her past. Rei is not shy or hurt by her past.
Honestly Rei is OK and is going to be fine given time.

Asuka: Relieve from EVA duty. She is not fit to handle the stress. Put into psychiatric ward because she will not take being able to pilot well.
It'll be rough but it's the only way.

The fucking 3 episode bullshit in the end of the series. Doesn't bring anything entertaining and fullfilling that was being promised since the beggining of the show with the teasing of the secrets.
I watched it like 1/2 years ago, so a lot of the "revolutionary stuff" never was revolutionary to me, shinji is an annoying cunt, Asuka is a bitch and Rei was a fucking plank. A "regular"(in my pov) series with a lot of promise gives me such a shitty ending that i end up disliking the show so much that i don't want to watch the films. And i know i'm missing some great stuff.

What's wrong with psychiatric wards? It's where Asuka belongs if she wants to stand any chance for controlled improvement.
Removing her from EVA-duty will make her extremely unstable. It won't do the same for Shinji or Rei, hence they can continue their normal lives, but since Asuka is too dependent on piloting the EVA, her ego will self-destruct.

When she could not pilot her EVA, she attempted suicide. That's a big no no.
Rei, Shinji, being more stable and less dependent, less under control by NERV, face no such problems. That's why they can safely continue, while Asuka cannot. A psychiatric ward is the safest place, away from high jumps or sharp objects.
>>
>>135634967
I don't know, I watched it for the first time like 3 years ago.


It just kind of seemed heavily focused on being a highschool drama with very little going on. Sure there's some really fucking cool side story going on, but it is kind of just a side story until the last 6 or so episodes. The rest of the character interactions are average at best.

It's a good show, but I don't see why so many people think it's a master piece. Sure it has some great ideas, but the execution was kind of flawed and boring at times imo.

if you're talking about the original, there's only one. and it isn't a continuation, it's an alternative/complementary ending to the tv ending.

while i personally prefer the tv ending, the movie might resolve things better for you. it's more focused on plot and it was the high budget, high octane ending that was teased in the preview of episode 24 which leads me to think that's what they wanted to do in the first place. but of course, budget restrictions fucked them over

Ebin samefags. I've worked in one temporarily. Anyone who "gets help" or benefits from a psych ward has no problems to begin with and "just needs time off." The doctors are reluctant to even show up and are often overworked and don't seriously engage most pateints unless the patients prompt them. 90% of the time patients just want to go home and complain of the situation making them worse. Hygiene is poor and the food is utter shit.

What's wrong with .gov?
Are you some sort of conspiracy theorist?

>Juvenile wards are sections of psychiatric hospitals or psychiatric wards set aside for children and/or adolescents with mental illness. However, there are a number of institutions specializing only in the treatment of juveniles, particularly when dealing with drug abuse, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety, depression or other mental illness.

Yep, sounds like a perfect place for Asuka.

At this point if i were to watch it i would have to watch death and rebirth to remind me some stuff(this is the one that is half tv series half movie right?) to watch that movie. And at this point i just dislike the series to a point that i shouldn't bother, maybe one day when i have nothing to watch. Thank you though.

>A tree chipper or woodchipper is a machine used for reducing wood (generally tree limbs or trunks) into smaller woodchips. They are often portable, being mounted on wheels on frames suitable for towing behind a truck or van. Power is generally provided by an internal combustion engine from 3 horsepower (2.2 kW) to 1,000 horsepower (750 kW). There are also high power chipper models mounted on trucks and powered by a separate engine. These models usually also have a hydraulic crane.

Yep, sounds like the perfect place for you.

I doubt someone with anger management issues like yourself would get hired to a ward. No, you were most definitely there as a patient.

Because the fanbase pretends it's deeper and much better than it really is

The staff don't eat the same food and it looks like you're completely adopting the patient's point of view.

oh shit

THE CRAZY ASUKAFAG SHITPOSTER IS LITERALLY A CRAZY PSYCH WARD PATIENT

Yep, the ward is perfect for you and Asuka.

Are you surprised? Is he supposed to not give a shit about the patients? Fuck, you're a retard and a samefag.

I'm sure Asuka will get EVA-themed straight jackets to help her cope.

>mods still haven't done shit to straight up NSFW
Why clamor for a position if you're not even going to do your job?

It all makes sense now.

The fireposter is an agressive, delusional cunt triggering at the most minor of things.
Asuka is an aggressive, delusional cunt triggering at the most minor of things.

Two crazies, together, almost romantic if they wouldn't need a straight jacket when in the same room.

So, let me guess, the "evil doctors" are the crazy ones, and the ones who need help? The patients are all fine and are just unlucky to have gotten in a psych ward, because the mean doctors don't want to help them?

Are you posting from a psychiatric ward right now?

I'm saying the patients are mostly normalfags and the doctors get worn out. No one with actual problems gets anything done at a psych ward. Doctors actualy have to filter a certain amount of people through or keep others depending on how room quotas. Medicine is a business, not samaritanism.

This is very bizarre. I am currently watching the remakes for the first time after watching the anime like 2 years ago, and came to this thread like 30 seconds after telling a friend in the room how Eva doesn't deserve the hate, and I forgot how good it was.
