Why has Evangelion become so popular among normalfags within the past 2-3 years?

It wasn't always this way.
>>
It was. It always has been. Just because you've only been watching anime for a couple of years doesn't make you a fucking expert on fucking fandoms mate.

Funnily enough, you keep seeing people here who dislike a show based on the fanbase. And quite a lot of them.

But yeah, Eva has always been normalfaggotry. /a/nons just keep saying "2deep4u" and "lurk moar" shit to make the anime seem like it's intellectual and only to be understood by PhD guys, but it was never, it is not, and will never be so.

The simple fact that it is the anime that saved the anime is pretty saying about the number of people it reached. If it had been obscure, nips wouldn't have given a shit.

That is, the whole "intellectual anime" is nothing but a shitty invention of /a/ to make themselves feel like they are watching clever stuff and create a gap with "pleb" shows (or shows they just don't like, if you prefer).
You know, the Bourgeois Gentilhomme type of old nostalgiafags, thinking they are more clever by trying to create dissensions within the community.

I always find it ironic when people say Eva is 2deep5u.

It is. The anime is still being discussed, analyzed, and debated to this very day. Almost 20 years later. Name another anime like that. You probably can't.

/a/ has multiple, probably a dozen, threads a day on this anime alone. It generates discussion. Each thread ends up being different (except for the inevitable waifu war and shitposting battles), with people asking questions, making up theories, or just trying to recover from the emotional impact Eva has had on so many people.

Again, no other anime is like this. It's not just our secret club too.

It is deep. Obnoxiously so at many points but I love that shit so it's a plus in my book.

>>
>>121934841
The only thing that could be considered "deep" is the last 2 episodes, but it was irritating. Don't forget it's nothing but a way to do a make-up ending with a non-existent budget.

And it's only discussed because people keep creating threads instead of searching. There's also the big "What the fuck did I just watch?" meme that is being used by Evafags in order to use some space.

Latest topic I saw of the show was a waifu thread also. So intellectual and full of theories.

Don't pretend otherwise: Eva is still spoken about only because it has marked the oldfags and helped anime to recover.

There's nothing to discuss about it.

Not surprised you think that that constitutes bait. I've actually met evageeks-type people in real life and they're the most pretentious annoying motherfuckers you will ever meet.

They're also the first motherfuckers to overlook the actual themes of the show in favor of the religious symbolism bullshit and making other shit up like dumb liberal arts students.

I had a lot of fun seeing the series develop into a campy episodic monster of the week show with some sinister shit going on in the background only to have it go into maximum suffering after Ambivalence. Why are you even watching a show if you're not having fun?
>>
Women.
The recent movies were marketed to women (AKA normalfags) by making them as gay as possible with Shinji and Kaworu flirting for an hour straight. So then the girls reblog eva pics on tumblr and twitter and get their boyfriends (non-virgins men, meaning they're normies too) to watch the movies with them, and like maybe 30% of their boyfriends will enjoy it too.
