- The creator was using him as a metaphor for Fans of Mecha and/…
all valid questions
The creator wasn't giving the middle finger. The anime was a deconstruction, but it wasn't out of hatred for the fans, but rather because it was a smart take on the robot genre.
I know it might blow your mind, but not all people that read manga and watch anime are fat antisocial losers that live in their own little world.
And the deconstruction might be well-written, but not something that "no one realized how deep it really was". The creator himself said the ending was a pile of nonsense.
I know that not all anime fans are like shinji( I am an avid anime fan myself). What I am saying is that the original writer wrote shinji to be a personification of what HE thought anime fans and otakus were. The series was his way of saying "This is what I think of your tastes, and this is what I think of you."
When i said that most people didn't realize "how deep it went" what I should have said was they thought it was a deconstruction of the genre at first and not of otaku culture. The guy hated avid anime fans(as was the case of most people in japan at the time, of course that has changed a bit over time) and was pissed when they enjoyed his mockery of them.
PS: I made this comment literally a month ago, slowpoke.jpg
Ah, I see. Well, many people believe the important thing is the question, not the answer. I myself believe that the creator wasn't trying to telling people he thought they were weak and wimpy, and I find it REALLY hard to believe that the anime is a deconstruction of the otaku culture as well as a deconstruction of the robot genre. If you don't mind, would you please give me a link to a page that the creator admits disliking people who look too hard into things? I don't doubt it, considering how crazy we can be about some things.
And, since I'm out of funny things to say here, have this gif.
And I don't consider myself a slowpoke, because I just created my account, and this discussion seemed interesting, so I joined.
