Woah, woah. Rei is not a goth type. I think you may have mixed up Shinji and Rei there, seeing as Shinji likes to whine and Rei barely interacts with anyone outside of the NERV personal and Gendo.

Congratulations, you have successfully grasped the simplest possible level of that show, that the characters are broad archetypes rather than people in and of themselves (except they are at the same time...it's weird). It's a deeply complex and symbolic show, which is either fantastic or terrible depending on how you view it.

NGE is my favorite anime, it's characters are not archetypes in the sense that "They were written like this just to be like this,"
There is reason behind each characters actions, the series is highly philosophical and symbolic.
It's hard for me to explain what exactly NGE is unless I start talking to a group of people, but at it's core, from my understanding of it, it shows people's insecurities, our emotional fragility and what many of us do in order to cope with pain caused by abandonment, rejection, etc...
Read up on the show, look at it a few times, you'll love it for not just the action

I disagree The EVAs are not just robots.

In episode 2 you clearly see Unit 01 has an eyeball. When the EVAs take damage like in episode 2 the Angel repeatedly jams that beam of energy into the eye area, did you think that was red fuel maybe coolants or something? I thought it was blood. They are more than robots.

The children do not use the EVAs NERV uses the children. This is just arguing semantics here but I think there is a distinction. For each child there is a different level of manipulation going on. I dont want to be a spoiler so I wont go completely into my theory on that here but feel free to message me.


Asuka is hot no doubt and Shinji is shy but I really think he was just raised to be polite and respectful to his elders and strangers. Thats not being shy its just not being as obnoxious as some of his peers like Asuka, Toji and Kensuke for example. Rei is no type. She is not "gothic" nor is she depressed or any of those sorts of labels. If anything she is obedient and unquestioning. She does what she is told without asking questions because that is what she knows. That is her view of how life works. Differently than Shinji though. Shinji still asks the questions and obeys the commands but in a manner that is more submissive than Rei. For Rei there is no need to question the commands of Gendo and NERV
