>Evangelion is shit because so says
Depression aside you haven't forgotten how Anno refused to go back on the 2 last episodes or how he said Eva is his life(or his life's work)?
That must be why NGE has been one of the most influential anime within the medium.
>if you like Eva ur reddit 2deep4u lol
If 2deep4you is the only sentiment you have after watching NGE then it actually was.
>literally /b/ tier lol so random insertions into an "artistic" work are "fine that way"?
No idea what you're talking about but not every word in a poem has to have a deeper meaning for the piece to contain a message. Sometimes words are chosen over others because they rhyme. Strip god-Rei of the mystery of symbolism and you get something streamlined, comprehensive and safe. Many shows after Eva tried to pull similar things but not many did it convincingly enough.
>so fucking deep and complex!
What made you go to that 'reminder of sin' or whatever? There's nothing like that in that dialogue. That conversation isn't there to bring up a biblical narrative but to present a parallel within the theme of escapism. Evangelion is heavily influenced by psychology and what's being done here is reminiscent of archetype analysis, taking a very deeply rooted cultural symbol and presenting a psychological view on what is it reflecting.
Those questions are not my musings on the bible. If that's how mankind was from the archetypal beginning then maybe that's just how man is. Pretty much every notable character in Eva is an escapist in some way or another. The last question is allusion to that void that Instrumentality Project seeks to fill and was brought up with Rei's conversation with energy dildo angel.
