What's wrong with liking evangelion?
It's a maddening and ridiculous series that was only made so Anno could vent and get over his depression.
Everything I've ever heard about it (including atleast 20 different breakdowns of its plot) leads me to believe it's an over-hyped nonsensical story drawing on christian symbols without understanding the symbolism of it all, with nothing but shitty 2-dimensional self-insert characters drawing on cheap "tragic" backstories which are also wholly illogical, all of it being constantly praised as a great work of art by weebs who don't understand what good writing actually is. I don't know how accurate that is since I've never seen it myself, nor plan to, but it sounds like absolute garbage to me. But hey, I liked Lucky Star and I can admit that that was also shit so meh, like what you want I guess.
If you don't enjoy a bit of thinking with your entertainment, don't watch it. If you do, go for it.
It might be those things, but it is entertaining
People like to hate popular things. It's a solid series, that sold well, and people like to whine about it being sad and deep. So, it gets called melodramatic and complicated. Anyone can find a reason to complain about good stuff.
not entirely, though it's hardly foolproof. it's confusing, and poorly explained at times, with a lot of relevant information and plot threads never being revealed in the work itself. The director having some sort of mental breakdown probably didn't help.
drawing on christian symbols without understanding the symbolism of it all
it certainly has some christian symbolism, but I wouldn't say the use of these symbols is really a point against or for it. it's just sorta there.
with nothing but ****** 2-dimensional self-insert characters
not quite sure about this. the characters have personalities (mostly), they're just shitty people. I dunno how low your self esteem would have to be to be an eva self-insert.
drawing on cheap "tragic" backstories
again, not sure 'bout this. the backstories are tragic, but that's kinda required for both the characters and the plot.
which are also wholly illogical
Not really. I mean, they're not particularly logical, but they're no worse than the vast majority of anime backstories. certainly not standout bad.
all of it being constantly praised as a great work of art
It's not a terrible series, but it's got it's flaws. I think a lot of praise comes from it being one of the first deconstruction anime films, which took the idea of kids in mechs and went "okay, but wouldn't this completely fuck them up emotionally?". that said, it's not as good as some people say.
And some non weebs. Weebs are involved, but it's correlation, not causation.
who don't understand what good writing actually is.
Writing is an artform, and thus has no objectively correct methods nor any standard metrics by which it can be measured.
writing is an opinion.
overall, it's not some shining pillar of artistic talent, but it's not trash tier either. might be worth a watch at somepoint, but don't worry if you miss it.
lots of people love it, lots of people hate it, and the general quality is, as is often the case, somewhere in between.
- Trump's gonna clothesline Kim like he did Vince McMahon. …

I know it won't happen, but if Trump challenged Kimmy boy to a hell in the cell match for NK I'd sell everything I own for front row seats.
Twist: Undertaker runs out, it's actually a coffin match and when Un's in it they just dump him in a ditch
