/a/, if I don't care for the mecha genre, will I be able to make it through Evangelion? I know it's rated all high and has a cult following, so it has to be decent, but I really don't care for things like Gundam and giant robots fighting.

Will this alone put me off from being able to watch it?

Honestly, it's very 90s, and suffers from "Hitchcock syndrome", or "thematic trickle-down", in that it was so influential on subsequent works that it seems cliche and outdated to younger audiences as a result.

But it's an objectively good series with lots to love. If the interpersonal drama and gut-wrenching suspense don't grab you in a few episodes, just drop it.

Ebingelion isnt a war story like Gundam, the entire plot and setting is contrived to showcase the psychology of the characters.

The difference between Eva and other mecha shows like Gundam is that the fights in other shows feel quite meaningless. Each fight in Eva is filled with context and emotional weight, and the show uses them as an opportunity to learn more about the characters rather than showing action for the sake of action. It's a psychological drama disguised as a mecha show.

If you liked Serial Experiments Lain you will probably like Evangelion

Thank you for this comment...I literally finished Lain not long ago and I loved it. So liking Lain, will help me like this?

Hmmm...

No, the two shows couldn't be any farther apart. Just fucking watch the first 1-3 episodes and decide for yourself, this isn't difficult. In the 50 minutes since this thread started you could have formed an opinion of your own instead of having others spoonfeed their opinions to you.

Lain fucking sucks dude

eva and gunbuster are both mecha titles that non-mechafags love.

>>158377706
lain is terrible. completely different than evangelion despite what contrarians say.
>>
Eva is more about crazy freudian psychology than mechas, really. Most the mechas fight are usually quick and without much flashiness.

I think mecha is an inherently stupid genre but NGE is my favorite series by far.
Don't go into it expecting that much. How much you enjoy the show greatly depends on what kind of person you are and what expectations you have going into the show.
Also, don't look up any explanations until you've watched all of NGE (1-26) and EoE. Personally I think its best to watch through the series at least twice before looking anything up if you're really curious, as a lot of stuff makes a lot more sense on a second watch.

like most mecha anime, it's less about the mecha and more about the shit that's happening

people who hate anime with mecha because it has mecha are fucking stupid
