This is not a troll, but Evangelion. Shit sucked my balls in ways I've never felt before. I couldn't stand it, it bored me to tears. Actually, most Gainax works do, including your favorite TTGL, which I gave an honest try, but just couldn't bear halfway through the first ep, and after finishing it (the 1st ep - I don't think that I'll come out alive if I actually watched that shitshow until it's end), I SHIFT-DEL'd that fucker and never touched that shit again. I don't know what you see in that shit. If you want to send a message through your work, don't wrap it up in nonsense and bullshit, in plot armor and cliches that shit up the story and make it incomprehensible. It's not "depth", it's inability to write your way out of a paper bag. Never was a fan of mecha either.
