I'm pretty sure, it'll be part of is Pleeb&Weeb series. He elaborated that he was particularly taken aback by the visuals - he wondered what happened to the spot on bright design from all the other Eva-installments, and why Q was so messy. Anyways, he always makes clear, it's just his opinions and he loves to hear other opinions as well. He is very well articulated and more often than not I at least understand where he is coming from. So yeah, I'm looking forward to his exploration as well.
Just to be clear, I don't have this opinion of 3.33 at all.

He calls it Otaku Gonzo Journalism.

Never heard of Gonzo Journalism until I Googled it just now. So, it's basically reporting based upon one's feelings, and not based in any credible reality? Also, how can he give any claim to Gonzo Journalism and still make a video series studying the filmmaking techniques of Hideaki Anno because they're good? He can't have both of these things. Either Anno is a good director because he uses these techniques, or he's a bad director because he uses these techniques.

It actually means 'self-insertion into the reportage'. The famous Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is understood as a hallucinatory account of his real investigation into the murder of a Mexican activist by the LA police. There's an analagous genre of gonzo pornography which means 'first person perspective' much more strictly. You and he both are probably picking up on Hunter S. Thompson's general persona. Since you can't do 'gonzo' anime reviews at all I would prefer that he stopped using that term until he MAKES ANIME REAL.

He's done some good work but I can't really defend what he's saying until he...actually says it. I will watch with interest.
