in my not so humble opinion, evangelion sucked ass
from the first episode down the last overly bloated
incoherent lame excuse for an ending. (don't give me
that crap about it being because i didn't understand
what evangelion is all about.)
i also think calling rei ayanami "kawaii" is
disgusting. :P 'course, i never could understand
why everyone just drools over that underaged
underdeveloped emotionless clone. then again, i
never could understand bishounen/bishoujo anime
either. so stomp me. :P
ruri is a far better version of rei, just as akito is
a so much better character than shinji.
at any rate, spitfire opinions aside...i just have to
ask -- what is your obsession with "serious anime"?
what is wrong with wacky anime? what is wrong with
flashy anime? who are you to dictate what anime
should be? this is just about as ridiculous as
saying evangelion saved anime.
if you don't like other genres of anime, then don't
bother with them. sorry, hate to burst bubbles, but
no one's tastes define anime. take what you like, and
move along and don't presume to tell other people
what's wrong with anime nowadays. i swear if i hear
another schpiel about the state of anime, i'm gonna
spontaneously combust or something.
no hard feelings. :)
