Evangelion character analysis

NB: I generally advise against watching the show. While it’s artistically ambitious, it’s plagued with terrible writing, awful production and direction, fanservice, and filler. The theatrical remake fixes most of these problems and is easily the most visually sublime creation of all time, but I suspect the creators have lost the plot (presuming they ever had it in the first place).

    “aristocratic amud-melon hybrid”

    Is this a thing now? Just when you thought the whacky theories couldn’t grow any more epicycles…

    Only anime worth rewatching. Maybe some Miyazaki’s works are exceptions but he’s a marxist fool and not to be trusted. Just like Kubrick, Anno focuses on the visual – not so much on the action. We will have to wait for the Rebuild to be completed to know if Anno is an artistic genius or just someone who got lucky. I wish I had time to put my thoughts on NGE into something coherent.

    Anno is Shinji, Shinji is Anno. Asuka is life, she is active participation, not depressive spectation. Other characters do not provide the drama but provide us lenses from which to view the drama. The apocalypse of NGE happens as much in reality as it does in Shinjis head. NGE is about the alienation and confusion the Thal experiences navigating the modern world. Evangalion is the direct result of him coming to terms with it and finding transcendental meaning for his pain and suffering. Shinji/Anno knows the hedgehog dilemma and yet still chooses Asuka/Life (a real human, not a fantasy puppet). And Asuka confirms this by reacting with disgust to Shinjis emotional need yet still choosing to come out of Human Instrumentality inspite of knowing that Shinji is going to hurt her. That’s mad crazy love.

    I will give you a nice big write up when 4.0 comes out. Or I might just grab my computer and smash it into a million pieces. If Anno is what I think he is there will be a lot of worthwhile aesthetic discussion in the near future.

    I don’t know how you could sit through this series, that Asuka is such an annoying cunt it just makes me want to turn it off. Im on 12 right now but keep hoping it will get better because it heard it gets really wild toward the end but its hard
