    Wii Code: WTF?You kidding me?

    Thumbs up What is so great about Neon Genesis Evangelion?

    Err-yeah. It's probably a really stupid question-but I want to know. I watched the entire series right through in three days-(alternate ending version included and in both English and Japanese) and I still don't see what the lure of it is.

    From what I can tell the whole thing is based on finding onself, sex and religion. Not to entertaining in my opinion. So-I'll ask you guys: What is so great about Neon Genesis Evangelion?
    I love Inuyasha character Kagome to death, but there are times I just want to beat the girl over the head with a 9 iron.

    Everything in the last half of the series, if you have an appreciation of psychology, and a large attention span.

    Not to mention your simplification is wrong. The theme is isolation. Meaning, the self imposed isolation of the individual against society.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    It actually has deep meaning to it. Yet as stated above, you have to care about the depth of the concepts to understand it.

    Otherwise, the main characters a wimp, Asuka's annoying, and Rei's depressing. End of story.

    Well, unlike about 95% of the crap on TV today, NGE is supposed to drive a more in depth look at psycology and inspire some situational thinking.

    Of course, that's all dependant on who's watching. I know of people who have watched it and loved it, and people who have watched it and hated it, all in the same general group. I was able to get our psycology teacher to approve watching a few episodes near the end of the year, some people loved it and watched the whole series, others scoffed at it. It just comes down to taste.

    There are a lot of interesting things that is incorporated into the series of evangelion. It's a shame that no one bothers to give it a chance.

    It depends on what your looking for. Many people come to it expecting a mech show like Gundam, and you won't find that. If your looking for nice neat little stories with no hanging thread, you won't find that. If your looking for answers to life's mysteries, you won't find that.

    What you will find is a story that asks A LOT of questions. It pulls the mind in on two levels. First, it makes you ask questions on what it is to be an individual and how you relate to others. It also stimulates the mind by having a confusing stories where even at the end you are left wondering, what happened? Instead of having a world neatly served to you on a platter, cut up in ways that explain what is happening, it just dumps you into it and makes you accept it on its terms. It captivates the mind to wonder, what did this plot point mean? Where did these things come from? Instead of giving you an answer it lets you wonder.

    Its like Stanley Kubrik's 2001: A Space Odyssey in some ways. You have to be willing not to understand. It's a vicious attack on a person's security in their own knowledge, and I have seen that either invigorate people to learn or to offend them in some way and arouse ire.
    The tragedy of life comes not from pain, despair, sorrow, or even death; but the constant annihilating amnesia that begs us to forget we live.

    I love Evangelion, precisely because it isn't about mechs fighting. It's a series about accepting yourself and other people, about living in a world that isn't necessarily kind. I have a lot of parallels with Shinji Ikari. Not so much now, but I was a lot like him when I was younger. I saw a lot of myself in him, and could identify with many of his struggles, and so to me the series became far more than simple entertainment.

    Even discounting the thematic aspects, though, it's still an excellent series. Great characters portrayed by a strong cast, a complex and very layered conspiracy story, some amazing battles and moments of drama and The End of Evangelion is so unorthodox and disturbing, I couldn't help but enjoy it on both a visual and cerebral level.

    Finally, I love the show because of the amount of discussion it generates. I was introduced to the show by a friend, and in turn I introduced it to several other friends, and on many occasions we've stayed up into the night discussing the different themes and plot points. I've always enjoyed something that encourages you to connect the dots yourself and apply your own interpretation to the events, and Eva does that brilliantly.

    You're right about the depth of the characters, Zenkinacu. They may start out as stereotypes (the "wimp", the "*****", etc.) but the reasons for their behaviour become apparent over the course of the series, and the final result is characters more complex and realistic than most other shows I've seen, animated or otherwise.

    I recommend you check it out, Mia, because it really has to be seen to be understood. In my opinion, it isn't a mecha show in the least, and so comparing it to other shows of that ilk is pointless. It may be about "robots" fighting "monsters" (although both of those labels are inaccurate), but at the end of the day the plot is used to carry across the overall theme. From start to finish, the show is about Shinji Ikari and the way he deals with the world around him. If you don't realise that, then of course people are going to dislike the ending, whichever one they watch. I've seen reviews of The End of Evangelion that bemoan the lack of "robots fighting", which strikes me as both amusing and a little sad.

    As a show about mechs, no doubt there are better, because Evangelion uses the "mechs" mainly to carry on the plot. Every battle builds on the characters of the pilots, I don't think there are any truly "throwaway" fights. But as a show about characters, I've yet to see one better.

    I find that you have to be able to look at things deeper than they appear, to understand Evangelion. For example in the series, Shinji Ikari goes through things that he may not understand. But without understanding these things, he trys to figure them out, causing, what I call "mental torture". First he finally understands him self, then his friends and breaks through to understanding more than he thought. The other part of the series is focusing around the things that people torture them selfs with, inside and out. All in all I must say that I find the series to be very in tune with real life.

    I personally liked it for the character development (which I thought was done pretty well, excluding the final episodes). There are better mech animes out there, in my oppinion, though (*cough*RahXephon*cough*).

    I like it as my second mech ever watching (after gundam seed i watched dat first) it's cool how they are trying to make mechs and not just start out with all powerful mechs. the art is good and the characters are likable (especialy rei) its a really great series if you watch it and understand.

    I've never watched it, but from what I can tell it's pretty decent, though there are quite a few better mech animes out there

    If you haven't watched it, you can't have an opinion, much less rank it against other mech anime.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    Yea, you need a good attintion span to accually realize what they're saying.

    For one, yea, Shinji's an emo, little cry-baby wimp, because his father doesn't care about him, and his mother is dead. Goes together, eh?

    Asuka can be annoying, and if you saw and heard, she only pilots the Evas so she can look good and be reconized. Similier to Shinji, both her parents hung themselves because they didn't like her daughter.

    Ray isn't depressed, it's just you guys are idiots. She's a replica of Shinji's mother, and shes quite for a reason. She hasn't any family, and the closest to a family she has is Shinji (hince to Shinji's mother's DNA, if i'm correct). And the only reason the jerk, Shinji's father, hangs around and likes her so much is, you guessed it, the mother resimblance.

    Sure, the last two episodes are can bore you to death, but if you understood it, it talks about that your not nothing and that someone out there in the world loves you.

    So, rethink what you say about the anime.

    So i'm right? First time I've been right about an anime on a forum...

    Manwards, the Evas are one 1/2 robot. The other half is human, since the Evas have a skeleton.

    Over all, I think NGE is a good anime to get into. But I wouldn't compare it to the Gundam serieses, they rock ^^

    It was my impression that they were more human than that. Giant humans covered with "armour plating" - or more accurately, restraints, as Ritsuko tells us later - that allow NERV to control them. Beneath the armour they're gigantic, mutant humans. "Synthetic Humans", again to quote Ritsuko.
    I can't wait for November 17th!

    Something that ruined eva for me almost as much as the characters was the 60's quality animation it had going on. No still frames for minutes on end with voice overs is NOT ok.

    Sega, this anime was made in the early 90's if i'm correct. Thats why it had such a low quiety in picturing.

    Bullox, I've seen far older animes with far better animation you're going to have to do better than that.
