So do people actually understand Evangelion the first time watching it? Or do they just have to google answers for two hours after watching the show?

No because I was a dumb 14 year old who wasn't paying attention to half the dialogue and found it all kind of weird

>understand Evangelion

What is there to understand?
>>
>>137189415
The plot and lore.
>>
>>137189415
Psychoanalytical references makes the characters far more interesting and deep than a pleb could possible understand.

>>137188799
The show is longer than that.

man even f*ckin shin-chan is deeper then this boring overrated pile of steaming turd shit

>>137189415
The scifi conspiracy mystery going on out of focus behind the character studies.

I don't get it, if people understood the show then how coul they think it's inconsistent?

I don't think you have to be knowledgeable about every single detail of the plot and lore to 'understand' a film or series. Part of that comes with time and rewatches so it is impossible to 'understand' everything on the first time watching.

Even if the 16 year old me wasn't able to properly verbalize the specific motifs and ideas, I still remember the feeling I got after NGE and EoE. I must have related to it in some way because I loved it and knew I was going to back and rewatch it all eventually.

A second watch certainly helps but you can understand most of it right off the bat if you pay attention, including the more mystical / religious imagery later on
