NGE was garbo and only got a cult status around here because anime was still fairly young in the early 00's.
Most definitely. Shit was fucking trash. The creator of the show was depressed and pulled a bunch of shit out of his ass while wallowing in misery. One presumes other teenage angst-wallowers could identify. Every character was a piece of his psyche and there were pointless religious references because japanese people think western religious iconography is kewl and hip.

Oh and everyone turns into orange Tang, the end. Conglaturations.

I think I'll check out some fansites for fun. I'd really like to know their theories on what that weird penguin could represent in terms of Judeo-Christian symbolism.

At the time (the 90s) the west thought Buddhism was kewl and hip unlike those violent and angry baka gaijin religions. They only like it because it is exotic to them. Though I noticed it seems to only be Christianity they give a shit about, unless I'm mistaken.

But yes, Eva is trash and the fandom are a bunch of pocky stick munching, fedora wearing pretentious scum who probably browse r/atheism in between fap sessions staring at Asuka.

Final episode is literally a psychotherapy session. 10/10 would fap again to symbolism.

Buddhism is full of violent fucks too, even though Irrlicht would disagree.

As far as I remember the Judeo-Christian visuals were nothing more then an aesthetic, as in 'It looks cool' no actual meaning behind it. Which didn't stop autistic people from finding grandiose hidden meanings. And to be fair the fanbase is the only thing that kept this alive so long(evageeks comes to mind). It was a failed giant robot anime that run out of time and money so they resorted to more introspective stuff that would fell into oblivion if it didn't find it's audience.

As for the show, Shinji must be the shittiest character I remember, before that the only type of character I despised as much as him were all the romantic characters and their weltschmerz or hover was that called,

Probably the worst though is that it still is going on, The 3rd movie in which Shinji becomes batshit insane and wants to destroy the world deliberately isn't even then end, They still plan a 4th one.

Rahxephon was a less-retarded clone of Eva. But literally anything is better. Daiguard was more fun.

Was Code Geass any better? I never watched Evangelion, but Lelouch and his entourage are all completely terrible characters on their own.
