That seems a rather apt analogy.

The thing that always gets me about EVA is its style. Its giant robots were faaaaarking cool... And then you met the pilots and the whole thing went to shit.

I'm hearing this retelling's going to be more viewer-friendly, so hopefully it'll be more faaaaarking cool robots and less psychoanalysis bullshit.

Robots are Gay. And so are pilots. There is only the X-Men, etc., something about Hugh Jackman, etc., Aussie, etc.

I never saw the appeal of Eva's robots.... I mean, they seem to have shoes when toes go into the ground. That kind of killed it for me... they were more like giant humans instead of robots.

I personally liked, say, Xenogears' mecha better.

Mystic Mechs are the best.

If by that you mean stuff like demon mecha, then yes.

Fixed because jetalone was really the only robot in the series, and it promised giant robots.

Fucking EVA pisses me off because it's not a Real Robot show (like Gundam or SPT Layzner, you know, realistic robots that have a chance of being built sometime in the future for the most part), and it's not a Super Robot show (like Combattler V, possibly Gigantor, you know, fucking huge robots with impossible power sources and NON-BIOLOGICAL PARTS. All metal, bitch.)
If I had to classify it, I'd say it's closer to being a Super Robot show.

They're barely even robots though, seriousky.

They're more like bioengneered piles of shit.

They're biological organisms grown from a legless staypuft marshmellow thing riveted to a big red cross (oh also it's got the spear of destiny impaled through it...and yeah, said spear is somehow large enough to be carried by a naval destroyer or something. So I guess both jesus and the roman legionnaires were like the size of godzilla), with metal plates on them so a U.N. subcomittee staffed by people with severe psychiatric issues can control them by jamming orange drink filled tubes with emo children inside into the base of the EVAs skulls.

Right now I've probably made the premise sound like it'd make for something thats fucking HYSTERICAL. And it probably could have been done that way yeah.

edit: Oh right and at one point the spear winds up being thrown into the moon by an albino, an albino clone grown in a giant fishtank looking room.. I'm explaining this so people who haven't seen the show can go "DUDE THIS MUST BE A TOTAL MINDFUCK". It sort of is but at the same time no, it isn't really at all.

Sharp really has immersed himself in the dank depths of darkess (3 COMBO - MARVELOUS) to be pointing out the finer points of what an Evangelion is so people don't, you know, confuse them with giant robots.

Oh, the horror.

I have stared into the void, and seen the horrors that lurk within peering back.

...so, the uh...real world has effects on how good giant robot anime is.
