I'm not even going to discuss about this. People at /a/ are retard, everything is emo and bullshit for then.
Shinji is emo, /a/ doesn't care his mother died when he was a kid, his father abandoned him and then called him back to pilot a giant robot and save the world, without even looking at his eyes.
/a/ doesn't care that Sousuke was a soldier since the day he was born and he didn't even really know the world outside. But even so he was able to find love(something some people go all their life's without finding), and then got confused.
