Are we supposed to have learned something from this? What was the lesson?
To be aware of other peoples suffering instead of thinking that you're the only special snowflake in this world. Pain is relative and everyone has baggage so please, don't scorn those that you don't understand, a simple gesture of love/kindness can go a long way. That'd at least one of the lessons.
Everyone suffers, everyone is unhappy and people will hurt you, but reclusing yourself and wallowing in self pity until you kill yourself isn't the solution.
Human interaction can be painful but also rewarding, get out and live.
And don't forget to buy some Eva merchandise before leaving the theater!
Getting all philosophical up in here
There's also the fact that people are willing to go to very extreme lengths to fulfill their dream of their ideal world, as is evident by the actions of especially Gendo and Seele.
throughout the entire show shinji is grappling with the hedgehog dilemma (pic)
he's afraid of opening himself up and living his life because he's afraid of getting hurt
in EoE he finally realizes that the whole point of living is to take the good with the bad and that, even though life can hurt you, it's worth it for the moments of beauty that can only be created by human interaction
I learned that I literally have chronic depression. My doctors confirmed it, but forwarded me to pysch anyway to be sure. They confirmed it too.
I'm still "getting help", but nothing has changed.
EoE made me see myself.
Too weak willed to go hero mode
I've got 25 years of evidence to the contrary. Though truth be told, I am really curious to see how long my facade holds up. I feel as though that's something that's beyond my control.
>You admit you're lying to yourself.
If referencing the facade, it's the only thing that keeps people from badgering me.
It's easier to pretend to be happy and it's easier to go to work and chat merrily with co-workers than it is to be myself.
I don't know what you mean about "banking on horizons" though.
Even if we try our very best to understand others, we might not be able to do so. No. In fact, we will never be able to completely understand others, and maybe that is the reason why we decide to close up our feelings. However, our effort to understand each other is still valid. That is the reason why we are humans, capable of loving each other, and that is the ultimate message of Evangelion.
It is our ability to consider "the unknown" as "something worthy of learning about." It is what we are meant to do as humans.
The usual positive thinking stuff, some light medication, therapy (one on one & group).
I drop in and out of relationships, so it's not too bad for me in that regard.
And a field like cutting up souls isn't going to attract the healthiest minds to begin with.
Others, reality, and unknown world is always full of fear and suffering, but there is true happiness hidden somewhere, so life is worth learning about.
Even if our feelings are betrayed, as long as our feelings are true, we believe and hope that we can find happiness anywhere and anytime, that life is worth living, that there is a reason to be "me."
That is why we need others. We need you.
Isn't the whole reason Anno is such a merchandising whore is because that's basically the only way he can fund Eva without having to give some degree of creative control away?
Basically this. The moral of eva is to come out of your shell and learn to confront life head-on and live your life. Don't run away and hide behind fantasies, actually get out there and try to bond with other people, as painful as it can sometimes be.
Part of the reason Anno has issues with the fans is that he feels like they deliberately reject the message of the series and incorporate eva worship into the otaku lifestyle, which he sees as unhealthy and self-destructive. He hates the waifuism more than anything IIRC.
The best thing to do would be to put them in a rar and put them up on mega.
They're in a mega somewhere, but I lost the link a long time ago. But alas, I must be leaving anyway, the request took to long. Another time perhaps.
That image makes my darling Asuka's ass look fucking horrible
I won't post links this time, but I'll just say that Tengu no Tsuzura is probably my favorite
not-gaysource of eva doujins and I'd def. recommend them. Pic related.
>What was the lesson?
Anno's response to Getter Robo Go
Speaking of which, I was fooling around with the AdEva unit creator and popped this out, for whatever reason I think the color scheme kinda fits.
You should, well, you should just go.
Bringing your deviant art tier shit here is just, fucking wrong.
>fooling around with recolor tools and posting the results is now on par with deviantart
You seem upset too. Are you the assblasted asukafag from last night? Are you the same as the other guy? If so, does it sting knowing that you're the exact kind of antisocial evangelion fan that Anno hates and made EOE to call out?
