Fuck it, it's bait so I'll sage, but I'm drunk so I'll respond.

Zeta is good mainly because of how it only tells the audience what it needs to know, and respects the audience to pick up on subtle character motivations.

For example, early in the series there is an episode about protecting Reccoa as she descends to Earth. It isn't explained well why she's headed down there, yet it is the crux of the episode. It's said off hand as if it were a useless piece of dialogue and the significance of it isn't seen until later episodes where she meets Kai (from 0079). The focus of the episode isn't on the logistics as much as what Kamille is going through at that point in time.

It's focused on the characters rather than the grand story. This throws off most people, that are expecting the war drama of 0079 and not a character study.

This would be fine for a general audience (hence Evangelion), but Zeta decides to portray these characters in a more human light.

In most anime (and fiction in general) character arcs are marked by beats, and the changes in their motivation are shown or explained on screen. Zeta instead just lets the events happen to the characters and expects you to understand HOW it affects them. Zeta won't TELL you that Kamille is upset, but instead has something bad happen to him and then cut to him acting angry in the next scene. There's no need to have a cut away where he states or shows he's upset because in real life, people don't do that.

This makes Zeta hard to enter for people that aren't focusing intently on what's happening on screen. Playing on your phone or just getting through it because you want to watch Char's Counter Attack prevents you from picking this stuff up. The best way to enjoy Zeta is pacing yourself and only watching an episode a day, if that.

Still and forever the king, baybee. At this point in time no new mecha anime can surpass it. There just aren't any animators, writers and directors good enough left in industry.

>>16689287

Its not that Eva can't be surpassed so much that it just... hasn't.

Productional quality has come a long way since then. It would be trivial to make an anime that looks better animated than Eva, though one could argue that without Anno's top tier scene composition it wouldnt be the same.

There have certainly been better animated mecha fights since then, from a technical standpoint.

The problem is that no one has bothered to try and beat Eva at character writing. That's what makes the show work and has kept it relevant despite 2 decades passing since then. Shows copy the superficial elements easily enough, but don't do nearly enough work to flesh out the characters and give them reasons to be like they are.

The characters of Evangelion sill would have made for a great show even if there wasn't a single giant robot in the whole thing. The giant robots just pour gasoline on an already existing fire so when these characters break they break dramatically.

This is something that a really good writer should be able to match or even top. But shows that try to topple Evas throne keep aiming for the wrong thing and treating their characters as tools to enable their plot rather than making the plot about the characters.

what is zeta, 0079
>>
I love the way that evangelion looks its simply great.
>>
Nadesico was a better deconstruction of mecha genre and a better love letter to 80s/90s Japanese geek culture.
>>
>>16692395

Shows that are both older than Evangelion and have worse character writing?

Way, waaay to much of Tomino Gundam shows are character actions that have to be explained away as 'he's being autistic' or 'he's just crazy'. When you have to fall back on vaguely defined mental illness rather than specific character flaws and traumas to move along your plot, you turn your characters into gears in your story that exist just to move the plot to the next scene.

You can't honestly be telling me that you consider "That guy I dont know called me a girl from across the room, so I'm going to sneak into a military base and steal a giant robot and commit treason and refuse to give it back even when it gets both of my parents killed" as good character writing.

Well, it depends on what kind of show you want to watch. Mechs are fun, but they usually tend to be setting dressing for other genres as much as they are their own thing.

If you want something like a military drama, then pick a Gundam like 0079, Wing, After War X, SEED, 00, or Iron-Blooded Orphans. You should find at least one show among those that you like. If you're looking for a police comedy, then I've heard good things about Patlabor. If you like noir or Batman (particularly the Animated Series), give Big O a shot. Really, just think about shows you already enjoy watching, and find a show with mechs that fit into that category.

My personal favorites are After War Gundam X (it's an AU, so you don't have to worry about watching the rest of the franchise) and Big O if you really just want some suggestions.

Almost flawless show. Besides like 1 convenience the everything in the show that was set up had a pay off. Of all the gundam shows I watched it was the only one to do "wor is bad" right. The kid acted like a kid, the soldiers acted like soldiers. Absolutely based show, I'm glad I finally found a show withing the gundam universe I can praise.
