style without substance
Wrong picture mate. I think you wanted to uploaded Redline but no big deal! Here let me assist you.
pretty lazy. try something less mainstream with a loud cult following if you want quality salt.
and you think evangelion pretends to have substance?
if we go with the multiple interpretation theory I'd say the more diverse and open to interpretation a work is the more plurality of meanings it develops
but thats too much so just
>shit taste get out fag
>the more diverse and open to interpretation a work is the more plurality of meanings it develops
And arguably the more the writers can be accused of being lazy since no matter the interpretation the "author always is right".

Try it with monogatari. There's a season going on right now, you might get something out of it.
Also, only a newfag will be so concerned with such a problem as "style against substance", like it meant something in the first place. Truth be told, it's hard to find something that only does one or the other, specially with an anime as convoluted by production issues and the personal problems of it's creator as NGE was.
Don't be an idiot OP, there's not such a thing as a dychotomy of style and substance. Both things influence each other (one might even say that style is subtance and nothing else).
The problem I see you're trying to convey with your post seems to be how pretentious NGE seems to be, which I would argue that it's just a thing that the fandom created by being a bunch of obnoxious idiots who're obsessed with how "profound and symbolic" the series is (even if it does both of those things quite well, they're just too idiotic about it).
