How do I Real Robot and Super Robot genre.
Robot is synonymous with mecha in many ways, being technical out the ass won't stop that.
Enough of this! Back to the topic!

Harem for the poor?
Triangles are not harem - this is what I stress repeatedly.
Hmm? The story is actually quite shoujo (the author is a shoujo manga artist so not surprising here) with multiple triangles dragging on and on. I don't see how it tends to be like a harem anime. Perhaps there is some "harem anime" you have in mind?

Should I have added that it's the wrong pairing to me, like I clarified before? It's pretty much implicit that it's my opinion, I suppose.

But you make it sound like a crime to want to see them just deal with life and not constantly grapple with their very sanity. And I would argue that while it does play out like a typical high school drama, the fact that it's Evangelion ads another layer to everything said.
Seeing Yui and Rei interact in Volume 6 was amazing. Rei's discussion of love with Ritsuko also stands out as a great moment. Comparatively, the Asuka/Shinji resolution and Misato/Kaji stuff was weak. But I don't regret reading or buying. And the art dramatically improved by the end.

The problem stems in our very nature: we want to see others happy, and when we see characters as tragic as the ones in Evangelion, it's only natural to think of a better world from them. That's one of the core reasons why the Eva franchise is so large today IMO. You have stuff like Angelic Days which helps to satisfy that longing many fans of the series have, to make a better world for these characters. Our natural ability to think the best of others overlaps with anime characters.
But that's also exactly where the problem arises. The characters of Evangelion cannot be changed: they are static representations of concepts that only become real in your own mind. Is it OK for me to write this? You could just leave the page, but that would just maintain the dream world we surround ourselves in. Static concepts acting and transforming in our imaginations, fueled by our desire for a better life.
And Angelic Days is merely fuel for that fire. However, I do apologize for my opinion...it's rather disheartening for fantasy worlds, and I do not wish to ruin your happiness further.
