You don't really know the meaning of "writing". It's how you execute this archetypes. Other than Boota being a simplistic mascot, every single lead character had some degree of important substance on the underneath.
Every single "shounen" plot device had also a pretty interesting symbolical purpose behind, the external storyline being only a façade of the true thematic construction.>Also, the idea of humanity progressing until it destroys itself would be interesting if hadn't been reiterated in nearly every other animu before it.
You certainly failed to watch the show. That was barely touching the superficial narrative and far from being the actual idea behind "evolution" in the show.
