Neon Genesis Evangelion is Not For Normies - Neon Genesis Evangelion has been put on Netflix, but the iconic series isn't for generic anime fans.
We've already had normie takes on Kaworu and Shinji. I can't wait for them to say it's a gateway to the alt-right. You know Polygon will come up with some crap like that.
Eva is the greatest series of all time. Netflix butchered it. Normies aren't getting the full thing. I've seen several normies be like "omg it's so good" then see the ending and completely shit on it and hate it. It will be entertaining to watch.
yupppppp I predicted that. It will be interesting to say the least. I want to see what the mainstream outlets say (already making it about sexuality) and the tumblr group has to say, which will be so funny. and I guarantee it will be called right-wing propoganda.
normies? really? so condescending. not everyone was alive in '95 ya'know
tough luck. it was meant for a different generation. today anime is mindless. that's why anno did and is doing the rebuilds. these people are watching crap. and they're not watching true eva anyway on netflix.
all the normies watching this on netflix are kinda ruining the mistique of it for me. my favorite series of all time. makes me sad. because they fundamentally do not understand it.
they do not get it. they are too obsessed with shinji being bi (he's not) or kaworu being gay (he's a transcendent being, he loves shinji, we don't know if it's romantic or not). they are ruining it for us, honestly.
It definitely is not for everyone, that's for sure.
