I have seen past Gainax work, and all have been marvelous. All the plots were well thought out. Their characters are always flawed and human, making them interesting. The story always starts slow and boring, only to build steadily into a staggering climax. Eva just lost all that. The plot didn't seem to go nowhere, and it seemed as if Shinji just kept on searching for nothing. He didn't mature throughout the whole series, and quite frankly, I don't think he is a good depiction of a boy his age. Nope, it just got too philosophical and ethical that Eva became boring as hell. But as an anime fan, I suggest you see Gainax's past works... They're really (as in REALLY) good.
