I find Evangelion more relatable in terms of depression/anxiety than Welcome to the NHK, but I can't put my finger on why.

NHK is way more relatable to me. Life started out okay for Sato. In the High School flashbacks it looked like things were on track for him and he was going to bloom out after High School only for everything to slowly go downhill. And then you're in your early 20's and you feel like the last few years may as well have not even happened and you're going nowhere fast.

Welcome to the NHK writer is a Kaworufag who has disturbing fantasies and writes them down, crying because Kaworu wouldn't love him as he loves Shinji.

Hilariously pathetic.

He sent a letter to the Kaworu Nagisa fanbook published around in 2006-2007. It's not the first time he admits being in love with Kaworu and feeling empty he can't find someone like him in life.

The dude is mentally challenged, having fantasies of hurting Kaworu, and having Kaworu hurt him back, saying he isn't worthy of being loved and dying together (this is seen as romantic: a lover's suicide).

Eva is more allegorical than NHK, while NHK is more realist in the sense that it depends on you identifying with certain aspects of the protagonist's life in order to relate.

It's because Kaworu, despite becoming fujobait eventually, he's actually made to cater the fetishes of Japanese guys: he was the romanticized partner.

Anno and his all man staff made him from their fantasies. Speaking of NGE Kaworu, not Rebuild one who is notably less feminine to cater to fujoshi ikemen fetish.

It seems that people of all ages can love a monster who wants to destroy humanity and only took on a humanoid form to accomplish this goal. I guess they feel he's redeemed because he fell in love with an emo kid and sacrificed himself for him.

What does Tumblr think of Kaworu?

As if Kaworu would ever love them.

I'm probably stupid for even posting here.
Thanks.

Kaworu isn't a monster nor he wanted to destroy humanity. He only followed humanity wishes: Seele's. Because he had no exposure to anyone else before he met Shinji. He loved lilin even before meeting Shinji, he valued everything he did.

That was the irony. Humans were trying to destroy themselves using angels because they hate their own humanity while the mother of angels (Adam) had fallen in love and thought their existence was worthy to die for them.

Because the show follows a fairly simple progression that tries to convey feelings of anxiety and depression through other, comprehensible forms? i.e. how the characters react/deal with their environment and the themes of the setting itself.

Also because Evangelion deals with feelings of manic depression, rather than the depression portrayed in NHK which is environmental and thus far easier resolved. In Evangelion, the answer (the solution to all Shinji's problems) feels distant, almost unachieveable and without real form, his victory (peace) is more of a state of mind than a palpable achievement, where as in the NHK, Satou would, in theory, resolve a lot of his problems by simply realising his own desires and reconnecting with society rather hiding away in his room, all he as to do is take proactive steps.

I'm not saying that moving out of the NEET lifestyle is easy but on the other hand, Shinji risks his life on a daily basis without any obvious recompense and no real motivation to keep on fighting, even if he does 'succeed' he has no friends, no family, no ambition to fill that void. Which is analogous to (manic) depression, everything seems hopeless at the best of times and you don't even know if the sun will rise tomorrow but somehow, you keep tanking on, you slowly start to thaw, maybe, make friends and gain confidence, like Shinji eventually did (in his own awkward way) and eventually come to the realisation that life might be okay, that you do want to live (if you're lucky to make it that far).

The right pills also help a lot though.

>>134163088

I think Kaworu is more complex than that and that's why these guys got attached. He's basically the perfect tragic supernatural girlfriend in mecha. But a guy. I think Anno wanted to be literal with romantic love in a Freudian sense: romantic love to Freud is the pursuit of the idealization of your own self reflected in others. Love develops since your childhood and when you seek your partner, you're supposedly looking for the things you wanted in yourself but lacked. Anno literally created Kaworu to be the ideal Shinji: his concept of love in flesh. That's why Kaworu says in EoE he's the "words I love you" in his heart.

There are other sci-fi elements that could be brought up, but, despite being Adam mother of angels, Kaworu was made to be Shinji's perfect soulmate. These fags self inserted, but self inserted actually appropriately because they got what Shinji actually felt rather than push their feelings onto the guy.

The angels all sought to ensure their own survival by destroying humanity. Sure, it's self-defense, but killing them was the right thing to do from humanity's perspective.

None of that is Adam's or Lilith's doing. Adam was raped by Seele and exploded into an impact, later Seele picked up Kaworu to brainwash him into their kool aid. Nerv did a similar shit to Lilith who was slumbering and crippled.

Adam and Lilith are beings that nurture life. Without them, there is no life.

Human, angels are just recycle souls of the same fucking place that they have given a different shell, but they are the same shit. Seele and Nerv (Gendo) are the real villains who made children fight against children and wreck the world because they were big manchildren who couldn't stand their existence as humans or were pathologically obsessed.
>>
>>134163881
Human existence is wrong, same with angels. Kaworu should have stopped being such a lilinfag and realize that they should start over and recreate their species. Lilith certainly wants to, or her urge is stronger.

Humans and angels are mistakes and miscarriages that Adam and Lilith had rather than the lifeforms they were meant to birth.
