I would most certainly say it did. I kept running away from this series for the longest time because I was running away from accepting myself. After I learned all these people didn't hate me like someone wanted them to-I began to love Evangelion when I used to hate it. I feel exactly like Shinji Ikari, and I'm sure it's a common feeling among most fans to have gone through all of this garbage, but clearly not in fantasy form, at least once. Does anyone else here feel the same about Evangelion or similar to it?

In a word . . . no.

It was a decent distraction from homework, though.

No not really, I was impressed and could see why it's so highly reguarded. But I would say it changed my life or made me think about my life any differently.
Unlike Haibane Renmei which by the end made me think about my life at the time.

Although,Eva, did make me at least willing to looking into more Mecha shows.

When I saw the End of Eva in the beginning where Shinji was at Asukas bedside and his hand was covered in....yeah. That didnt change my life...just made me laugh.

But the series is really good and shame on you for avoiding a series! :P

And the Evas arent Mechs! lol

Evangelion is just like any other anime. Nice animation, cool character designs. Story is good weird, but doesn't effect my life.

Eva, is truely, my favorite anime, animation, show, story; of all my life. It's so beautiful. Rei is beautiful. Asuka is spicy. Shinji and other chara reflect my personality and self. The symbolism is alluring and mysterious. And the plot is wondefully original. Everytime I watch the End of Eva movie, I cry, But not from sadness but from how beautiful and terrible it is. It reflects what I would call humanity. It reflects what I would call personaility and identity. It reflects a secret of life which might even be a possible meaning of life itself. I love Eva

when I saw Evangelion all the way through....a part of me turned emo.

so then I promised myself I would never watch it again...

But it was a really good, really deep series. 8D

I guess in order to really get a good grasp of the meaning behind this anime, having suffered much as Shinji did aids the understanding of it. It I think is supposed to convey a dark meaning about humanity but still mix it in with some of the good. I would not qualify it as an average anime. The content is too deep to be qualified as overly average. It reminds me of Kino's Journey, and Serial Experiements Lain. Only I think Lain messed with my mind the most. XD

I wouldn't say it changed my life--I don't really identify with any of the characters. However, it did change a few things about my life, in that it inspired me to start writing anime fanfiction, which in turn really helped me write professionally.

One of the great things about Evangelion is that you can either look at it as being an above-average mecha anime (and yes, the Evas are mecha, in that they're piloted machines), or as the most profound anime series ever produced. Personally, I think it falls somewhere in the middle: there is a ton of character depth absent in a lot of anime, and it has a very engaging storyline (there's a lot of anime where the characters face the end of the world, but not many where they not only fail to prevent it, but actually help it happen).

However, I do think Eva fans have a tendency to put too much into it. Let's face it, Hideki Anno wrote Evangelion mainly to deal with his own lack of self-worth, and his understanding of Judeo-Christianity is flawed at best (which he admitted himself). We won't even get into Anno's stoppage-of-Prozac that led to the disjointed original ending, or his possible connection to the Aum Shinrikyo death cult. Or the fact that End of Eva is pretty much just his cinematic middle finger to all those Eva fans who wanted a big mecha fight or gallons of blood.

There's a lot of Evangelion that doesn't make any sense or is just plain stupid. Most of the characters have little redeeming qualities--Shinji never gets over his inherent wimpiness, and his rising to become a man (as the opening music says) is more by accident than design. Asuka stays a royal biatch until she dies--yes, she had a traumatic childhood, but Shinji's wasn't ideal by any standard, and he's not being a bully or a tease. Just about the time Rei starts becoming more interesting than the archetypical "mysterious girl," she's killed off and her clone is less interesting. Misato is too much of an alcoholic caricature than a character until End of Eva, when she dies. IMHO, the most interesting characters are Gendo and Ritsuko--Gendo because of how he plays both ends against the middle for his own ends (yes, he's a horrible bastard, but he's at least three-dimensional), and Ritsuko, doomed to commit the same sins as her mother. The manga is far and away better than the anime.

That said, it's one of my favorite series and will remain always so. I just wish Gainax would leave it alone instead of trying to wring more money out of it.

I've never watched this anime but I think I'd get to it in time. I haven't heard anything about it either. If I watch a trailer of an anime, I'll either like it or put it off. I watch almost everything I've been recommended to watch though.

In a weird way, it did.
It gave anime a deep side that I really had never seen.
The last two episodes actually made me think.

I couldn't think of an anime character that is similar to me. Maybe qualities and hair styles but not looks or personality. I'd be a mix just like anyone else.

You know, I believe the point of that was to convey that not all humans are perfect. You might learn a lesson but that doesn't necessarily mean you'll get over yourself. There's nothing wrong with catharsis like in Evangelion in my opinion. Art is art. He's the one who's successful in life for expressing his own troubles of self worth in a hit seller. It's not supposed to be a happy go lucky anime where all the characters change for life drastically, in my opinion Evangelion was supposed to have those flaws. I heard rumors that the creator went nuts when he made it, and that wouldn't surprise me considering the way it ended. That's what makes Evangelion plausible despite it's mecha settings. The emotions characters are feeling aren't fake and deal with stuff every day humans struggle. In the end it just goes to show, self worth sells. X)

Asuka isn't your average cutesy anime girl, neither are Rei or Misato. Shinji isn't the overly confident hero everyone wants in a typical anime. That's why I love it personally. It's highly original with the heroes it has from my point of view. Most creators of anime and manga tend to make their characters big shots and it gets overdone and tasteless after a while.

I agree to a certain extent. And I give kudos to Anno for not forcing a happy ending (though actually the original series had a somewhat happy ending, at least for Shinji), and for making something different than the norm. But I do think the main characters got overplayed a bit. Shinji never seems to change for very long; he's always hopeless. Asuka has no redeeming qualities. Rei is just, well, Rei. It would've been nice to see Shinji actually grow a spine, and Asuka to realize that she was self-destructing, and Rei to realize a few things about herself. The series seemed to be heading in that direction as well before it went off the rails.

The Evangelion manga I think does a better job of this. Asuka occasionally shows signs of real humanity, and she's funny instead of just a mecha-piloting version of Naru Narusegawa. Shinji does some real growing up in the manga and definitely shows signs of true courage. (He takes a swing at Gendo when the latter calls him a failure because Shinji refused to kill Toji in EVA-04--Toji dies in the manga.)

Anyway, just my opinion. I still love the show, and it's certainly one of the best out there IMHO. There does come a time when you have to realize that Evangelion was made because Gainax wanted it that way, and not because we wanted it that way.

Not developing the main characters is in some weird way developing them. It makes them feel more human. Because we as humans constantly make the same mistakes. A lot of people never learn and make the same mistake time and again no matter how much it hurts us. So by giving them these more human qualities you're almost developing them even more. You're not supposed to like the characters. Hell I think the most likable character in the series is Pen-Pen. And I think that says something about people too because you have these disgusting characters that you hate, who never learn from their mistakes, but in a lot of ways they're just like you and your friends. I mean if you really tried you could probably cast your friends and family in pretty much all the roles in the series because they have similiar traits.

I won't say Eva changed my life...it didn't...I won't say its the greatest series ever made...it wasn't...but it did offer up some interesting view points.

Evangelion was one of the first anime series that I actually had been introduced to and I would definitely say that it is debatable as to whether it had a definitive life-changing impact on me. I've seen it countless times now and each time I go on a binge and rewatch the entire series and accompanying movies, I just have fun attempting to come up with new ways to interpret the story, the characters, and the concepts of what it means to be truly "Human". It's a very interesting series and while many seem to mindlessly think that Evangelion is simply about screwing with your mind, those people seem to be only half-right -- there is more to it than meets the eye. Perhaps it's just my own way of going about things, but I greatly enjoy attempting to derive meaning and interpretations from these types of anime series. I guess I could say what I did get out of watching the series was a reinforcement of the idea that we all seem to attempt to hide behind our self-created masks and facades in order to cover up our own insecurities, our own limitations or failings, and more importantly our own fears.

Ah well, maybe I'm trying too hard to divine some sort of meaning or lesson(s) to be learned from Evangelion. -Shrug-

Lol; the only anime that "changed my life" was Sailor Moon and that's because it was the one that introduced me into the genre. 14 years of fandom later....

Not at all. I was told to watch it because it was ground-breaking and amazing, so I did. It was entertaining, but definitely not one of my favorites.

Also, Shinji annoyed me SO much.

It's truly a master piece. One of the few shows I can discuss for hours and hours on end. The complexity of the characters and how you come to love them no matter how psychologically messed up they are, or the motives for doing the things they do.

I like how, unlike so many other post-apocalypse shows, there's not really an evil faction per say. The Angels have a reasonable motive for their actions; Gendo does things outta love; Seele to protect humanity... it's so amazing how outta all this chaos a beautiful story unfolds, one that mirrors a chuck of human nature.

Not really. I was disappointed, I think people fanboyed to me about it too much beforehand and I was let-down when it didn't live up to this transcendental experience they all gushed about. <_<
