Nah what's funnier is people who think a kid doing the job he was commanded to do, only helped out for half a quarter of the season, while the rest he sat out crying until someone had to say "You're the one, you're exactly who we need right now, help us", was someone worth rooting for.Manuelito Canelito wrote:You know what's funnier about all the people complaining about Shinji never growing up, not developing a spine etc?
That they somehoe miss the skreeonking development Shinji gets in the first half from where he started
Compare that with how Shinji started
Anyone who ain't able to see that either has terrible attention skills or confirmation bias
The protagonist doing SOMETHING worthy of being the main character of the series shouldn't be a needle in a haystack. The kid was pathetic, he made it out of that second situation due to Asuka's insistence and pushy behavior, which briefly got him off his ass. The first situation he was groomed and his ego was stroked just to get him to help, don't forget an episode before that he was reluctant to even bother against the angels.

Let's not forget in End of Eva, he literally got every main character killed because of his "crippling depression", even when said depression was about the very character he just let get killed.

I won't even get into the fact that the little self-loathing, self-pitty'ing creep whacked off to Asuka's corpse in End Of.
Bro is literally one of the worst characters in anime. Which seems to be a pretty popular opinion.
