The creator of Evagelion was in therapy during the time he was writing the show. There he had a first hand education in psychology & was fascinated by the works of Lacan, Freud, & Jung.

In fact, psychoanaylitcal theory is more so the basis of the show then giant robots.

Many of the characters have deep psychological traumas resulting from their relationships with their parents & their childhood. Which of course forms their personalities, their social habits, their limitations, & the way they act in combat.

So their actions, both good & bad, are a direct link to their childhoods psychoanalytical theory such as Shinji's infamous masturbation scene.

A lot of people who were repulsed by the scene to the point of bewilderment dont understand the importance of psychoanayltical theory to the series.

Maybe they just think Shinji is a shitty character?

This sounds about right.

What kind of 'therapy'? I may understand the concept behind it, but in an anime I don't see how it makes the show more 'meaningful' because of alienating character behaviour. Pardon me, because I've never fully watched Evangelion, but I want strong characters, not ones who've got every reason/excuse in the book for totally undesirable behaviour on any level.

I guess there could be interest there, but I'm not too into seeing that kind of stuff in anime. I just don't think they mesh very well in the end.

I didn't mind Shinji so much. I kind of like when a character has some faults. Although, I can see where some could be put off by it.

I liked Evangelion, didn't like the ending though. I'm looking forward to those Evangelion Movie remakes, there are rumors that Mana will show up in it.

Is Evangelion worth the watch no matter what? I've never commited myself to it.

I think it is. It is one of the last quality, fully hand drawn anime series. I felt it was worth watching based on that alone.

I was thinking. Another reason why I dig on some anime, is due to the fact that it will take advantage of genres that live action won't or ones that haven't fully been realized, exploited, or aren't popular in the West.  I tend to like cyberpunk and steampunk. As far as visual media, there isn't much created here related to those genres outside of Blade Runner. While the movies aren't so hot, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex seasons 1 & 2 are pretty cool -- as is the first GitS manga series, the Dominion manga, and Appleseed manga (Masamune Shirow does pretty well with that genre).

If by "cool" you mean the most boring things on the planet, then yes.

Like I said it was a rumor, and I think LuPerry said something about it.

Have you ever seen Last Exile? I was watching a little bit on YouTube last night. Seems kind of interesting.

Also, cyberpunk and steampunk is some good shit.

I own the first few dvds, and I really like the idea of it, but I had real problems with the meshing / use of CG and some of the smaller ship designs. The CG was just jarring at times.

Hmm... See I kind of liked the CG. It looked really nice at times, like the explosions and whatnot. Although, I've really only seen bits and pieces.
