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.

I don't think it's so much to do with quality, as opposed to people's personal preference and feelings towards ambiguous storytelling. It is really just a massive art piece given movement, at least from my perspective. Some people may like it, and others might despise it - that's just the way it is.

It's quality in all aspects for the most part is undeniable (from an artistic perspective that is), although the altered characters and the direction of the story is questionable throughout. I've enjoyed it thoroughly for the most part though in spite of this, hell, I even enjoy the new take on the characters in some instances. It makes it distinct and fresh, if you understand my meaning.
What will be will be.
