For a more serious answer, Shinkalion S1 dips into the ethics of using child combatants, and now when I watch Braves, Eldoran and other mecha anime I can't help thinking

Sounds interesting, but I'll probably stick to the movie before going deeper.
I was thinking more along the lines of
>Dynamic heroes (Koji Kabuto, Sayaka, Boss, the Patlabor crew)
>Treatening, charismatic villains (Prince Heinel, Count Brocken)
>Cool origins for weapon upgrades ('70s Gaiking's miracle drills being developed while the crew was in captivity)
>Wild monster designs (Grendizer giving every monster a saucer form, until the designers ran out of ideas and switched to mutants)
I know this one is aimed at little kids, with some nods/pandering for the older viewers, but I still hope it'll deliver on some of them.
The movie is a continuation of S1 and makes no sense without it
A serious answer, apart from the interesting characters, train/engineering history and trivia, and cool storyline about trying to understand even your enemies, it also shows tons of places that are interesting to travel in Japan and talks about what kind of food you should sample when you get there. It has pointed me to countless interesting places and I've tried the local specialty. Second season delves into yokai, mythology, and urban legends of various places and shows you more things to see. I probably would have had to do a lot more research without Shinkalion, but it really sold it. Problem is, Japan Railways raised the price on the Rail Pass for foreigners visiting on tourist passports last year by almost 2x the price. The Rail Pass was fantastic fun for a railfan or just someone who wanted to travel. I went for three weeks and for something like USD 600, I rode the Shinkansen literally every day, went as far north as Aomori, and as far west as Hiroshima, and many places in between. I had a lot of fun, but I wouldn't have tried to travel to even half of those places if not for Shinkalion.

Ark-One was a hasty rewrite because of the coof. Bujin Sword was genuinely retarded character assassination.
so in-series, the reason Houtaro is able to turn into wild modes was that the Egg chemy was the base of the Gotchadriver he uses. So the 101 Chemy was with him all along.

Shining Heresy is peak VOTOMS
See, I don't even class Palisen Files as the same as an OVA because it's basically so far removed from the original series just by being from 2007. I don't know why people really jump to watch things made 20 years later and expect it to be consistent.
Shining Heresy came out in the 90s and that was closer to the 2000s OVAs. Plus there was enough stuff like video games and print media that filled those 20 years.
There's being consistent and then there's completely rewriting massive parts of the established story. Come on don't be so disingenuous.

So, with their speed, strength, and most importantly AT Fields, Evangelions basically blow every other military vehicle in NGE, End of Eva and the Rebuilds out of the fucking water, that much is clear. However, unlike, say Jet Alone, which has a nuclear reactor for energy, and can move around for days without an umbilical, your average Evangelion can move for a grand total of 5 minutes when unplugged, pretty much castrating any chance of them being used as offensive weapons unless you don't mind your cybernetic divine horror falling into enemy territory like 5 mins after being deployed. On top of that, they have no integrated weapons other than their own hands, an oversized box cutter that NERV calls "knife", and the AT Field.
Other than an S2 engine, obviously, what would (You) do to make use of an Eva outside Tokyo-3 viable? Big fuckass reactor tied to the back? have it carry spare batteries to replace when needed? A support unit with a jack to the local power grid or comandeered infrastructure and a really long umbilical?

You don't want a nuclear reactor in an Evangelion because you don't WANT to give an Evangelion unlimited power and movement.

Evangelion are barely contained divine beasts that held in check by human technology. The armor isn't actually just armor. They are "restraints" that lock into place when the Evangelion runs out of power, or when the Evangelion receives the shut down signal. And even with that precaution, Evangelion can still run amok and go out of control. A berserk Evangelion running nuclear power is a horrible idea. It would never stop. The only check that keeps an Eva in place is the power limits.

The rest of world doesn't understand Angel's. But Nerv secretly knows that Angels will only attack Tokyo 3 because Angels are attracted to Adam's remains. So there's no need for Evangelions to have Independent power to travel since the Angels will always attack Tokyo 3.

And BTW...JET ALONE would get its ass kicked by almost all Angels. And when Jet alone goes down, it would leak nuclear radiation all over the environment.

Jet Alone has nothing that could pierce an AT field. Remember nukes just barely did anything to Angels. Early Angels were mildly annoyed at best by nukes, and later angels just outright ignored nukes. It didn't E en scratch later angels.
Yeah no, Jet Alone's complete failure of a design was never in question, just the pros and cons of nuclear powered Evas.

Its mostly the booster fins but the early design sketches for the mk II's backpack seem like it had a similar wide wing stance along with longer fins which makes it look similar to the hizack to me.

That's a good point, Okawara and Fujita worked on both of them around the same time so it's not hard to imagine ideas bled over. Particular with the even earlier draft that had rear design. The lower part of the backpack with the thrusters is particularly similar to Hizack's

This also reminds me of the old SD Nise Gundam Mk-II which is based on Hizack. It never really made its way into proper UC but the "technical" blurb for it was IIRC a Hizack doing its best to mimic Mk-II's performance and serving as basis for Barzam.
Honestly, it wouldn't be hard at all to include this into AoZ.
>a Hizack doing its best to mimic Mk-II's performance and serving as basis for Barzam
a vulcan pod on Hizack is kinda genius as option equipment, offsetting this common flaw in Zeon-styled designs
not sure if it'd fit on the head without modification, but still

AGE's forst 2 arcs is solid. Hell 3 is servicable too (mostly because of side characters and Flit having a more active role), it wasn't until 4th arc where it really went downhill.
Hell Lyle also had a good arc too. Iirc it was established that he struggled with bei g the second Lockon because he wasn't as good but eventually earns the name.
Was the third one Tatsuya, the guy whose sister wanted to fuck him? Personally, I think Inaho from Aldnoah Zero is a bigger Gary Stu than Kira.
I think it was Shirou Emiya from Fate.
Man, Evil Shinn sounds like a harpy.

I remember one of the big complaints about it was that weapons lacked good feedback or juice or something like that. Where it just doesn't feel good or satisfying to shoot or hit things and a lot of weapons end up feeling samey on top of it.

I never played so I don't know how true that is, and someone correct me if it isn't, but it's a complaint that really put me off and made me not want to try it.
I'd say the melee can be a bit simplistic but most of the weapons feel fine to use.
godamn that fucking sword is so fucking broken. you can swing yourself across rooms with the right arms with it.

sucks that melee options are so mediocore in this game. I wanted to use the colossus sword.
>you can swing yourself across rooms with the right arms with it.
Trivializes the fuck out of the puzzle rooms where you can't fly.
Sorta? I mean, it only ever felt like a problem if you stopped to actively acknowledge that weapon types all tend to share a sound effect for firing, or that the hit sparks are very clearly defined for "not hitting at proper range" vs "hitting in the sweet spot range to get full proper damage."

Like, it wasn't a game where you were saying to yourself "man this big ass club hits like a motherfucker" because it wasn't exactly really there to sell itself on the viscerality of its animations, if that makes sense? Simply put, it's something that could've been improved on, but it's also easy to not notice it because there's other stuff your attention is going to get dragged towards.
