It's not news to anyone that Neon Genesis Evangelion's Hideaki Anno is very critical of Otaku culture and that his attempts at nurturing his audience have been, by fault of either the audience or his clunky, hamfisted and overall misguided means of doing so, less than successful.

The feature length alternate ending to the series, aptly titled "The End of Evangelion", is often (and correctly) cited as the most egregious example of this kind of criticism. Right out of the gate it starts viciously lampooning the "Mega Fan" with a scene of protagonist Shinji Ikari having masturbated to completion over Asuka Langely Soryuu's comatose body. The idea of the Mega Fan's appreciation of female characters amounting to little more than depraved sexual longing, obsession and entitlement towards that character is reinforced later in the film.

To keep this post short, I'll cut to the point; I think it's safe to say that yes, at its core being a Mega Fan or an "Otaku" is more about obsession and entitlement than really, genuinely, liking something. I'm not really interested in discussing that. However, I don't see any harm in feeling a sexual attraction towards the vast majority of female characters in fiction or well, women. I don't think desire is a form of objectifying women; that kind of thing has to come from action or a certain series of actions.

Shinji oversteps his bounds whacking it to Asuka, yes. But the sexual inclinations he felt towards her weren't intrinsically wrong; were they?

To continue, I don't think it's a bad thing to like a female character in a work of fiction solely because of a surface level attraction to them. I don't think there's a lot of harm in that, especially when more often than not, they're designed to be attractive and to elicit that kind of reaction in the audience.

I suppose what I'm asking here isn't so much "Is having a waifu really wrong?"

What I'm asking is, "What's wrong with wanting to fuck 2D girls? Sure they're not real, but that's what masturbation is for."
Asuka wasn't pure-blooded Japanese so Shinji shouldn't have felt an attraction to her.

Which chapter is that from? Have not read this in ages. Also is it still getting ova's. Might as well bundle them into a season at this point.

>What did you think about the Bleach final?

Is this your first day on /a/? Everybody except shippers hated it, and rightly so, because it was dogshit.

Can we please have a Eureka Seven thread? What do you guys think about the ending? Do you agree that Dewey did bad things but his heart was in the right place? Is Talho best girl? Is AO really that bad?

Just finished season 2 of pic related. What a waste of time.

Ichika is pathetic, I don't think he won a single fight. Is the LN any better or is it just as bad?

Do you hate Houki like a Hater Faggot or what
Ichika is as generic as they come. Over the past twelve episodes I have truly come to despise him. The harem antics were only so-so. The action was shit. 10 minutes of Ichika getting his ass kicked until one of his bitches comes to rescue him.
I do not really care about Houki one way or the other. She is alright I guess.
