Even by the low standards of pretentious, self-congratulatory anime this show is just horrible.
Eva's pretentious and self-congratulatory nature is exactly what makes it so fun.
The creator/director/head writer was recovering from a severe nervous breakdown while he made this and it shows.

I probably would not have loved this show as much if I had not been as pretentiously depressed as I was in the 90's.
Misato's hotness helped, too.

I guess their purpose was of human origin, then.

ugly ass robots. Give me Gigantor.
Any robot that's bigger than big AND taller than tall is all right in my books.
Anime is great. To poop on!
That's fascinating. How do you poop on an entire genre? Do you go one animation cell at a time? Because that would take a while.
At 24 frames per second, it wipes pretty fast.
no kidding, im a happy camper if they go for 12
If I had never seen Neon Genesis Evangelion, I would be excited to see it after seeing this trailer. As it stands, meh.
fuck that noise

If you watched this trailer, you don't need to see the whole series. All the best parts are here.
You've got these precious few minutes of cool shit like giant robot fights and awesome futuristic technology strung together with drawn-out scenes of the main characters having emotional crises and crying in dark rooms.
Watch FLCL instead.
fuck that, watch Dead Leaves
Watch Blade Runner, Metropolis, or some other superior American work anime rips off.
um, I think Metropolis was a German production, as was Fritz Lang the director.
unless you mean the recent anime film Metropolis (which i rather doubt), because that was made in Japan.
but since you're obviously trolling without even bothering to check references I'll refrain from adding that Bladerunner was directed by the British director Ridley Scott and performed poorly in North American theaters.

Evangelion gave me hope that one day everyone I know will die a horrible death or go insane.
Evangelion was so muddled, pretentious, and over the top teen angsty that it almost single-handedly destroyed my love for anime.
Fortunately I watched Steel Angel Kurumi right after it and all was right with the world again.
Wonderful nostalgia. And a great show.

Fived for the memories. This trailer is ridiculous for how it desperately tries to sell the ACTION of the series and how it makes even less sense than the series itself.
My thoughts exactly. Awesome trailers were ADV's specialty. They could make even the shittiest of shitty shit anime look appealing to any kid in the 90's.
This sugarcoats the series and says absolutely nothing truthful about it. GIANT ROBOTS! GIANT ROBOTS FIRING PISTOLS! GIANT ROBOTS THAT SOUND LIKE GODZILLA! FLASHING, BEEPING INSTRUMENT PANELS! ODE TO JOY! BLOOD TYPE: BLUE! GOD! HOLY SHIT THAT GIANT ROBOT JUST VAUDEVILLE YANKED ANOTHER GIANT ROBOT! GO BUY THIS NOW! WE KNOW WE DIDN'T SHOW YOU LOTS OF TITTIES THIS TIME BUT YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS NOOOW!
