You do know what otakus are right?

There's your answer.

For a man who spent most of his life consuming and creating entertainment for obsessive manchildren, it is weird how critical he is of them.

He was trying to make a standard mecha show, though. He's said he himself doesn't know exactly how/why it became what it did.

Anon, they're otakus. They're trash. You SHOULD be disgusted by them. Or rather, any respectable human being should condemn and forever hate otakus who are the literal trash and stain on humanity and its great civilization

You say while posting on /a/.
>>
>>152421562
Because Anno is an Otaku, and he has always hated himself.

Calling him some sort of "misunderstood genius" is a gross misunderstanding of the type of person he is.
>>
>>152421562
He made something sincere and from the heart, and people just used it to fap. It's like seeing your child become a drug dealer.

It's like raising your child in a meth lab and then acting shocked and horrified when they become dealers. I've always been puzzled by that supposed reaction of his, particularly given that he's hardly an anti-hentai or adult-anime-girls-only guy himself. Seems like it's probably been overblown over the years.

He hates that he can see himself reflected in the face of every fucking loser otaku in japan.

It was just a phase, he grew out of it and now he's just laying back and he turned Godzilla into an Angel while putting Eva music, hoping to get more Eva fans into theaters
I hope he just finishes Rebuild, I don't care how, I just need an ending already

The only scary thing about Shin Godzilla was that I have the same political opinions as the Master.

Honestly that nearly ruined the movie for me. I've always been supportive of Anno but even that I have to admit was pretty hack-ish.
>>
>>152425687
It was just a bit of fanservice
>>
>>152425717
It's not fanservice because it forcefully ties to unrelated franchises together. The tank scene was a cool homage, but the music defined Evangelion. And now he forced it into a much more famous franchise that he doesn't own just because he wants to make everything related to Eva.

people speculated that its probably one on the reasons. He really did felt angry

he had to remake the half of nge bc of some terrorist attack in tokyo so he went with the shinji going on this self discovery stuff and the fans in japan sent m=him death threats so in the end of evangelion he basicaly said fuck u and made shinji jerk off to asuka bc that what the fans were doing anyway

So basically, it's a bunch of people that consider overthinking everything as a piece of art when it was confirmed that it was actually winging everything without too much thought? EVA in a nutshell?

He used to be one of them but eventually moved forward in life and now sees how retarded all that shit is.
>>
>>152427638
I'm not saying Eva isn't a masterpiece, it's just that people find supposed hidden meanings where there are none
And I really do love Eva, the only thing I don't like is how Rei is really lifeless, I get that that's the point, but I wouldn't have made that point
>>
>>152423656
>all perverts are lolicons

>>152427638
That's the same logic of some dude complaining about a character not acting like a NEET. He goes on and on lecturing for shit. That sounds great and all, but there was one problem, that character was never a NEET. See how that narrative is essentially bullshit?
>>
Look OP it isn't that hard to understand, people look back on themselves and are usually disgusted and despise their past selves and their actions. In his case he COULDN'T move on because he knows as long as otaku exist, so does the past he wanted to forget. It didn't exactly help that he got a shit ton of death threats for the tv ending of nge.

This. If the imagery was only there because he "thought it was cool" that doesn't mean he wasn't subconsciously weaving a narrative together with visual callbacks, etc.

Plus most of the imagery is from the manga anyways, Anno's contribution was managing the resources of the animation study to bring about the best possible product he could with what he had. His decisions about pacing, or changing characters a little to make them more sympathetic, whatever.
>>
He's a huge Otaku himself.
He just has a problem with cancerous people who don't want to grow up and become proper adults.

top kek, I guess Anno wrote the wikipedia article on it, his hatred of it might also be why all the Eva characters have long legs and normal size heads, because he was aware of Neotinous features being infantilizing to the audience.

>>152423915
From what I heard he didn't quit, he was fired.
>>
>>152427854
That doesn't make any sense. If there is no intention, then it is just improvising. The funny thing is how people like you and fans create some sort of narrative and call it some underlying message or meaning or call it "unconscious" basically speaks for itself. It is deceiving yourself and just delusional. It's pure lunacy that you people always repeat this narrative that was never intended in the first place. It's simply put as "pure luck" and people try to find ways out of it. The idea you can craft a narrative out there in the ether because it might exist is just nonsensical.
>>
>>152427773
With those death threats came letters of appreciation.

>>152425476
How was Shin Godzilla? I still haven't seen it but that art book of it looks god-tier as hell.

>>152421562
He assumed that being an otaku was the reason why he was depressed. Now he's still an otaku but somehow justifies that it was the reason he was worse off.
>>
>>152427435
Eva was Anno's take on the God Warrior from Nausicaa (which he animated) and Ultraman, whom he played as in a fan film.

why are you all always arguing about that christian symbolism? I'm glad it doesn't mean anything, Eva isn't "deep" because JESUS, LMAO, YOU GET IT? Eva is meaningful, beacause of it's realistic portrayal of psychological issues, interesting characters and deconstruction of many anime tropes and movie tropes in general. If you want Jesus go watch any Zack Snyder movie, or The Matrix sequels. These have that on every turn so they must be more meaningful, right?

>>152428402
By what means are you attempting to straw-man me by saying things about symbolism? I'm already offended by the way you tried to say things that I never intended nor indicated. The pure stupidity on crafting a narrative just because you think it was that is insane. It's an asinine way of thinking that leads people to over think what anything means. You've proven yourself that you're delusional based on the fact you crafted a narrative that was indicating christian symbolism. If I had to sum up your entire post: it's bullshit.
>>
>>152427638
EVA isn't a masterpiece though. No anime is.
>>
>>152428563
If you have issue with eating properly because you don't feel like you have the energy to make food (wouldn't be surprising if you eat like crap already) or are just a lazy shit then just buy some Soylent, Joylent if you're in Europe.
Super easy to make, literally just some powder in water.
Full bag of Joylent has 2100kcal for example, and every single nutrient you need to be healthy.
Basically the culmination of nutritional science in a bag.

It was always his own goddamned fault, but he never took direct responsibility for it and blamed his audience like the weak-willed, simpering little coward he really his.

This is a pretty ignorant response. Now before you begin to rail on me, you have to give credit where credit is due. What Anno did with Evangelion might not have been groundbreaking in terms of literary merit but his visual directing puts to shame every other director (aside from some few) working in anime. Every scene is incredibly interesting and thoughtful. Just compare some of the dialogue scenes in Evangelion and any other anime or the choice of shots for his battle scenes in episode one. He manages to use his visual skills to aid him in portrayal of his thematic goals (regardless of how puerile you might think they are) and creates interesting shots that reel you in. Compare that to say the well lauded OPM anime adaptation that manages to do less with all the incredible talent working on it (how do you make a gag manga less funny than it already is?). Anno is one of the few anime directors who has such a grasp on film's visual language and it shows.

Probably something similar to what made William Shattner hate Trekkies so much.

How did it deconstruct it? Nothing it did on that subject matter wasn't already done in the original Mobile Suit Gundam 15 years prior.

Deconstruct has truly lost all meaning.

He's got it backwards. Anno actually thought people would like Misato and Asuka more in Japan, and was surprised when foreign audiences went for them and his people went for Rei.
