Review of Neon Genesis Evangelion

Evangelion might have had an impact on the anime culture, but I think it's incredibly overrated, rather pretentious, and most of the time, just downright mean-spirited. Why? Here, we have Shinji, a kid with self-image lower than a mud-encrusted doormat. I can buy Asuka being hard on him since she's the hot-blooded Tsundere type, but everyone else? Unacceptable! And then there's Rei. She's hard to explain, but she's the only character I actually feel sorry for despite her apparent lack of emotions. Everybody knows of the classic "Mind Rape" episode, but the episode afterwards was where the entire series went straight to hell. Why? Because Dr. Akagi had the audacity to destroy Rei's dummy plug and kill her clones because of some affair she had with Shinji's father Gendo, while the current Rei gets killed by one of the Angels! And that REALLY pissed me off. And seriously? This was marketed to kids? This isn't exactly a Don Bluth movie we're talking about. Evangelion would scar children for the rest of their natural born lives! I don't recommend this, personally.

My rating: 3/10

kids are more resilient than we care to think - watch Tideland

I thought the series was good but shifted into mindfuck stuff at the end - no doubt due to production problems

Worst. Review. Ever.
Not even well explained about the serie's minor flaws. And seriously, just because of the protagonists being teenagers you think the series is targeting to younger audience? What an awful excuse to throw shit about NGE just for irrational reasons.
The same goes to the other casual of the comment, but with basically ranting the show for being overrated.

NGE isn't for kids. It is an ANIME. This media have adults since his beginning.
And why this anime is mean-spirited? Because this anime is for think about this characters and how they descent into the most critical conditions. Really, this review is just painful.
