>Hello, I killed the mecha genre.
Not likely because there's been better mecha shows that have come out since NGE or even any of the Rebuilds.
Anyone got that looping webm of Jet Alone?
Why? Mecha is often the most experimental, host to some of the most acclaimed series, a staple of seasonal sales, and incredibly influential.
When mecha is healthy, anime is healthy. Why would you want it to die?
>you can't fully experiment new ideas
There are more than just ideas that can be experimented with. Mecha has some of the best examples of cinematography, for instance, you can find(as well as some of the worst).
Also, Shounenshit is much more cliched.
Read the thread, dumbass.
Not exactly, I remember a thread from the winter or spring where someone made a webm of JA walking and had the Boulevard of Broken Dreams lyrics in their post, but alas..the archive

Motherfucker you made me look up for this, don't you dare do this to my heart
You take that back motherfucker
I really didn't find Shinji to be all that shitty. 90% of the time, he was in the EVA ready to fucking go. Yeah, he freaked out a couple times, but he's by no means a massive pussy.
Like really, what show are you guys watching?
>Shinji is a pussy meme
He's 14, His mom is "dead", his dad hates him, he's sexualy confused and frustrated, and he's tasked with engaging in numerous fights to the death with giant monsters to save the world. The fact he didn't an hero by episode 5 is a testament to the resilience of the human mind. And let's not even get into the month long introspective mind fuck trip he went through when he got absorbed into his robo-mom.
