I first recognized this problem about a year after I discovered the series for myself. To date I still haven't fully reconciled these contradictions. The closest I've come to is this:

The series seems to call us to "take care of [ourselves]," which to me proscribes a balance between indulgence in what makes us happy in an imperfect world full of suffering and engaging with reality. I was talking with an anon about this over a year ago, from whom I got this idea of balance. I don't think Evangelion is totally anti-escapist for this reason, which may excuse us from owning merchandise related to something we enjoy, but it doesn't go along with, as you note, the ridiculous quantity (and quality) of items licensed with the series.

The problem also comes from the series's own outstanding qualities. It is sleek, very tight, and wondrously blends technoreligious symbolism with genuine psychoanalytic inquiry, but in such a way that naturally leads people to think about what it all means (even though Anno himself has said there is no definitive answer, take that as you will). Further, the characters are appealing, not only in terms of the female characters being attractive, but in terms of all of them being relatable and sympathizable, which deepens our attachment to them. So it seems that the characteristics of the series and its characters predisposed it and them to becoming cultural icons and objects of obsession and, indeed, desire for many people.


That is not to say, though, that I am fully comfortable with this conclusion. I have felt in the past that, if I truly accept the series, I have to reject owning anything related to it, because it seems hypocritical and, as noted, contradictory. Maybe it is a simple capitulation to my own base desires to be satisfied that I own things related to it; I don't have figures, but I do own DVD copies of the series and many other small artefacts from the past twenty-five years. Maybe I am wrong. As I said, I haven't fully reconciled this, and I doubt most people that know the series even think about this as a problem - though that is a reflection on them, not the series.

But it doesn't, you are confusing what the show says with what americans say about the show.

>Read Fairy Tail and Black Clover last year purely because I heard how terrible they are

>Ended up genuinely enjoying both despite the fact that they have flaws

Sometimes the hate is just a bit too strong in my opinion.



The only thing going for is the fan service, and the fan service is still lame ass shit.

Best release this year desu; it even made the game relevant again. It's definitely a derivative work but imo it has enough charm to hold up on it's own.

Just finished nichijou like a week ago, loved it but I can't seem to find anything like it that is actually good. I tried watching joshikousei no mudazeki (recommended on some obscure anime site) and it was just very unbearable with the least likable cast ever lol. any good nichijou like animes? pls recommend

Try something new. There are a lot of shows out there, and if you never seek change neither will you ever be satisfied. Everything else will be inferior to the original.

on another note i'm pretty sure you'd like komi can't communite.


There isn't any other anime that is like Nichijou. I have not seen Yuru Yuri but I'd figure it maybe a bit similar, Azumanga Daioh is also a little similar

The name of the manga is Plus-Sized Elf.

It’s the story of a weight loss clinic dude being surrounded by secret reverse isekai women who have a weight problem since coming to earth due to the abundance of food & the convenience.

Pictured is the titular fat elf who started the story with her french fry addiction. And the cast is built from there with a Dark Elf, Mermaid, Plant Lady, etc.

A story is only as good as its ending, when most story/character arcs and plot points are wrapped up satisfyingly, and the creator has said everything he or she wanted to by this point. This is also why 99.99% of anime/manga stories are shit, and in fact, the ONLY good anime/manga story that has ever told is the original manga run of Fullmetal Alchemist.


>A story is only as good as its ending

Not always. If the whole point of a story is the ending and the ending needs to tie everything together in a way that makes sense like in a mystery anime for example, then yeah. But not all stories are like that.
