Worse, I got into the Eotenas late last year after seeing too many /a/ threads about them.

The robots in Rossum’s Universal Robots, the play that coined the word “robot,” weren’t even mechanical. Etymologically, “robot” connotes forced labor, and the timing of the word’s inception with industrialization and automation led to the term being conflated with mechanical objects. You could think of manmade creatures like Frankenstein as proto-robots, and Evangelion as a homecoming to the word’s original meaning.

Well, let's say then fighting against monsters and cannibalism are not qualities typically associated with loving human mothers.

Yui is no longer human. Also: debatable (depending on historical and societal context, etc, etc)

I am not a native Japanese speaker. Was this just a passing comment or something in a context that would warrant the backlash? At the end of the day, it is a big spectacle of giant robots punching each other, among many other things.

Yui very much is still human. In fact, the show makes it a point that Evas and Angels are just as human as the lilin

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu
