What the fuck did I just watch?
Well Congratulations, you got yourself caught
Anno's first attempt to get otakus to stop being worthless shut ins wallowing in escapism.
Now go watch EoE and then read Sadamoto's manga and then read retake and then watch the rebuilds and then kill yourself because you have nothing left.
Can anyone explain to someone who has not watched Evangelion why people believe the plot to be so WTF with the least number of spoilers to none if at all possible. I mean to watch the series eventually but would love to know what I'm getting into
Because it starts a a dour but fairly standard mecha show, then it lightens up a lot until suddenly things get dark really fast, and for it's climax both in TV and Film trascends anything you could call plot.
People overrate it's wtf factor. This is because many don't get much from what happens on the first watch and either need to sit back and think it through, rewatch it or even read some wiki explanation for it. It's not very hard to get the plot from it's different perspectives and the ideas it wanted to present if you have a functioning brain.
Whether it was masterfully done considering the budget and the medium it was made in or pretentious edgy bullshit is up to you to decide.
Now go and watch the fucking show.
