I don’t disagree with that fact, but since when was plot relevance a factor in determining Best Girls or Waifus? I think audience reaction might be the deciding factor on this.

The problem that NTE kind of faces is that with every movie they decided on a wildly different idea on what rebuild should be.
That coupled with the wish of "tearing-apart" the near clockwork structure of the original while STILL trying to adhere to
(fixed plot-beats in 1.0) (iconic imagery in 2.0)
is a tremendous challenge. So when 3.0 came around they had so many dangling threads, while also introducing so many new ones in an effort to open a new narrative, while ALSO almost exclusively being concerned with action sequences.
That's why, NTE especially compared to the tight structure of Eva it overall feels scatterbrained.

I personally never cared that much about plot details, tbh... One of the reasons I love Eva so much is, that it is something we rarely get in media.
An high-quality raw, unbridled personal artistic expression.
It's rare to see vision, effort and talent collide in the specific ways Anno happens to foster.
