I respect the opinion of people who find Evangelion pretentious or navel-gazing (even though I find some very valid themes behind all the ironically indulgent mech fights and hallucinations), but people who hate the show because of Shinji need to understand that it is a deconstruction of the mecha genre and that he is supposed to be a coward lacking any personal growth. If anything he regresses by EoE. That’s what having to pilot a world-saving robot against your own free will does to a teenager who already has major issues. The fact is Kaminas and Simons rarely exist in the real world.
