I personally don't think it's interesting at all. It's just a big cop out really. What's the point of having Shinji and co. go through all these traumatic experiences and grow as people if you're just going to undo all of that with a shitty reset mechanic? What exactly does that teach the target audience? How does it fulfill Eva's trademark theme of facing reality?
Although considering how prevalent the loop theory was for a while it seems like some people are just fine with resetting the world, themes be damned.
