This failure later spawned the two so called movies, one a simple recap, and the other a rewriting of the 2 final episodes. It all left a sour taste imitated nearly another decade later by wolf's rain. The entire Evangelion series could be summarized rather simply, its just a 14 yo kid with issues trying to get laid. All i would give Evangelion credit for is predicting the birth of a whiny, depressive, and indulgent generation that today we know as emo. FLCL is a much greater feat for Gainax, it was filled with innovative animation and techniques.
    Never watched the movies, FLCL is at least a hundred times better
    and Shinji was very annoying/emo. so you sir are 100% correct

    still the GANTZ ending eludes me, it made it seem as if the whole thing centered around Kei
    which does'nt explain alot of things i.e. Nishi and such.

    Emo predates Evangelion by about a decade, and was well on its way out by the time it came out. On the other hand, emo was hardcore punk, not whatever the hell people misuse its name to be these days.
