Kinda horrifying that they force 14 year old children into mechs and neurally link them together

Like the scene from episode 2 i think where his arm breaks on the eva and he thinks and feels that it happened to his own arm.
And then there's the "episode" later on. You'll see it when you get to it.

Not scary, horror.

The trenches of WW1 were horrifying. Auschwitz was horrifying. Because both of these things go against every day reality, and involve terrible things.

They tend to break the spell we all are under, that we're safe, that things happen a certain way. The feeling of feer can be horror, but so can denial, incomprehension, powerlessness, inevitability, ignorance, and so on.

Evangelion uses loneliness, misunderstanding and insignificance to portray horror. A lot of people don't like the show because it seems '2deep4me', but ironically, they feel that way because it IS deep. The creator was really depressed at the time, and wanted to tell a story with many layers so he could in some way talk about his thoughts on human relationships, how we're all imperfect, we're all vulnerable, etc. It's one of the few things in media worth analyzing and thinking about, and rather than turning your brain off to some degree, you should be trying to read between the lines.

Why does Shinji refuse to pilot the EVA? Probably because he feels used, or he feels he's ignored until he's needed, or he feels he only gets attention from his apathetic father when he tries to go against his wishes. Shinji isn't afraid to pilot the EVA because he's a coward, he's afraid because he's alone and no one cares about him, no one is supporting him, they just want him to destroy the threat then disappear again.

Shinji is a complex character, and so is Asuka, and Gendo, and Misato, and Rei, etc. In fact, even characters who are only seen for a few minutes on screen have character arcs and motivations, instead of being simple background figurines.

Evangelion is a good show, and a horrible show, but not horrible in a bad way.

Well aside from the giant monsters butchering eachother until the streets and rivers literally flow full of blood. LITERALLY.
There's all sorts of existentialism and things like that. It will make you question things.
It will try to fuck with your perspective.

I think it was worse because I assimilate with shinji and a lot of the problems he was trying to work through, I've also been trying to work through. If you're at all like the main character you'll probably gain a few points of self loathing watching it, and a sobering nihilism will wash over you like a flood.
