Alright guys I just finished watching Neon Genesis Evagelion. In my opinion, not as bad as I thought it would but I usually try to get rid of any expectations of greatness when I watch an "anime classic" to avoid biased judgement. The only problems I had with it was that some scenes dragged WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too long, the plot was kinda confusing, and the philosophy they try to interpret seems kinda preachy and even false. However, the mystery on my mind is why does everyone loathe Shinji so much? Yes I know, he's whiny and takes no action to aim towards his goals but he wasn't a terrible person IMO. He didn't run away if someone was in danger(unless I forgot something if so please bring it up) and that In my opinion is what truly makes a person hateable, to let someone suffer while the character benefits. He did run away though from NERV reason being some fear but I thought it was more of the fact that he didn't want to be used as a tool by his father. Can anyone shed some light?

I think everyone watched Evangelion and waited for that moment when Shinji maned the fuck up and kick the shit out of some angels or people, but it never really came. He moped his way through the series, right to the end, where he still did nothing. I like him, but it's undeniable he's a pansy. Whether he's got the past to justify being a pansy or not, he's still a pansy either way.

And then Rebuild 2.22 came around and no one spoke bad of Shinji again.

They're great, I can't wait for the 3rd one to be subbed.

I disliked him because he was all
"Bluh bluh my life is so sucky! I'm surrounded by new friends and get to pilot a giant bio-mecha that kicks ass even when I'm unconscious. But my life is so sucky I can't handle it!"

He was just so... pathetic I guess... while I can accept this as his character I still dislike him for it. He could have overcome his fear, he could have done a lot of things, but he just sat around moping all the time begging for help from others.

I agree but:
1. his friends in nerv were all basically using him and didn't care(except misato), asuka was a total bitch, Rei was basically shell and just because she wasn't mean doesn't mean she was nice either.
2. I would be scared since you feel all the pain your eva feels so i understand that.
3. yeah hes sulks waaaaay too much

quiet whore!... >.>

True, but he had school friends as well, also my memory is being messed with since I've seen both the anime series and Rebuild so I'm probably getting a bit mixed up in my head, they were certainly a closer group of friends in Rebuild.

Hmmm you're right I forgot about that XD still the pain is reduced but I guess that's a legit reason to not want to pilot an EVA.

Derp

lol don't worry i do that ALL the time i just finished the series literally like 30 minutes ago and still went blank but the most surreal things were the last 2 episodes and the final one where rei was loud and obnoxious made me go "WTF IS GOING ON!?!?!?"
im interested in watching the movies but im afraid ill be pissed xD

No one likes a whiny beta cry baby, whether you relate to him or not. Though for Shinji's case, he's allowed too with the shit he goes through
User avatar #525937 to #525935 - OoJesusoO (02/23/2013) [-]
Yeah thats my only defense. If he was just some whiny pussy I would care less but because of his past I cut some slack but others hate this character so much he comes close to the amount of hatred people have for Makoto.

My guess is people hate Shinji because on some level he resembles something in the audience that they like to forget.

That's pretty stupid i mean anything can look bad you just have to word it right.

Hmm, make Kuroko no Basuke sound as shitty as possible.
#525947 to #525936 - sirchris (02/23/2013) [-]
What the fuck is up with Kuroko no Basuke? I mean, the first thing that comes to mind is that it's a sports anime and that it would be shit because of that. To make matters worse it's a fucking basketball anime. All these fuckers do is run back and forth on some wood flooring and rub their sweaty balls all over each others legs while throwing a bigger ball back and forth. Does that sound fun? No, if I wanted to watch men get all touchy-feely I would go watch Boku no Pico. WHICH, by the way, has a way better story than KnK. Oh, and did I mention that it's a HIGH SCHOOL basketball team? Yep it's an anime that, once again, follows a high school protagonist. It could have been college or a pro league player to make things a little more exciting, but no, it's a high school anime. How fucking original.

I did my best, does it sound shitty?
#525949 to #525947 - synthuz **User deleted account** (02/23/2013) [-]
Well, I appreciate the effort,

yeah.
User avatar #525948 to #525947 - lawuser (02/23/2013) [-]
Joke was too obvious, I give it a 7/10 for effort
User avatar #525950 to #525948 - sirchris (02/23/2013) [-]
Well I haven't seen KnK so I think I did okay, but a 7 is pretty generous.
User avatar #525951 to #525950 - lawuser (02/23/2013) [-]
KnB*
KnK is something entirely different
User avatar #525953 to #525951 - sirchris (02/23/2013) [-]
Son of a fuck, I even spelled it wrong in the joke....
You know what I meant.
User avatar #525939 to #525936 - yeorgh ONLINE (02/23/2013) [-]
I meant the character background and story and all that deal, and i can't word for shit.
User avatar #525938 to #525936 - lawuser (02/23/2013) [-]
It's a sports anime
User avatar #525942 to #525938 - yeorgh ONLINE (02/23/2013) [-]
Even then you can say that Kuroko was outshined by his other teammates and that he didn't get the same recognition or that he doesn't get noticed or some bullshit like that, nothing as bad as Shinji but still.
User avatar #525940 to #525938 - synthuz **User deleted account** (02/23/2013) [-]
That's actually true
User avatar #525941 to #525940 - lawuser (02/23/2013) [-]
I know right
User avatar #525933 to #525930 - OoJesusoO (02/23/2013) [-]
