A comparison of Evangelion fans to Gundam fans made by Fuji TV at the recent openings of the two giant robot statues (Gundam and the Eva unit) has upset many, although whether its truthiness is actually in doubt is hard to say.

Eva fans:

Young women

Couples

    Eva was awesome, but if I want to watch Gundam, I'm going to original or Zeta. A lot of the newer Gundam is A. BEEN DONE BEFORE BY GUNDAM! and B. So freaking emo at spots I wanna punch someone.

    That's cause retards, Eva unit is at Fuji Q theme park, and Gundam unit is a stand alone attraction. You bring your girlfriend on a lollercoaster not an SLR camera.

    According to some crows on Sgt. Frog, they both suck and Macross is where it's at. XD And why are they some upset anyway? Gundams are manly. Even Noble Gundam is awesome.

    I think if the man with the SLR camera still loves Gundam in his middle ages this just shows how influential the franchise actually is. Also what evidence do they have to say he's alone did they stop and ask him. Gundam is over 30 years old and has created over a dozen different series. Evagelion is just a 26 episode TV series in which they have repeated the same story like 3 times now with exactly the same story. At least with Gundam they had the common decency to make it different not platently repeat the same show over and over again.

    Like any kind of media, music, movies, video games, television shows it is subjective to one's personal PERCEPTION.

    So if one thinks Eva is not deep and the other believes so, it is inarguable because Eva is subjective to one's perception.

    Personally, from my perception, I believe Eva CAN be a very deep show especially for those who have been through tough/hard experiences.

    Once again, from my perspective, it was extremely psychological and freaking played/released with emotions I thought I never had or had only kept to myself/locked away. A life changer for me.

    Actually I'm a fan of them both as they both have their good points.
    As for the comparison of the fans all that proves is Gundam is an older series and has older fans.
    BTW a camera phone even a Nokia or Driod is a very poor substitute for a good DSLR.
    The best phone cameras are about as good as a Walmart special with a non interchangeable lens and crap CMOS light sensor.
    BTW mega pixels is a meaningless number more full of sh-- then megahertz.
    The sensors on the MER rovers are only 1MP yet take better pictures then any phone I seen.

    My Nexus One takes better photos than my recent Digital Compact Camera. Pretty impressive really... you should check out the new smartphones.

    They have improved greatly my N82 takes pretty good pics in day light.
    Though it does fall flat in low light.
    But a great camera will always be too large to put a in a reasonably compact phone.
    It's because of the laws of physics as to get a great picture you have have lenses and sensors large enough catch enough photons to get the detail.
    When talking sensors size does matter a 1/2" sensor will outperform a 1/3" sensor of otherwise equal specs.

    How can one say eva isn't deep? Clearly that person lacks any of the required knowledge and experience that would show it is quite deep.

    I guess having cultural analysts, psychologists, and myriads of professors around the world writing lengthy essays on the merits of Evas depth has no meaning to you all. I guess a doctor with dozens of years of education and training is wrong when he says Eva is a profoundly deep piece of work.

    Do any of you read academic work, classic literature, literary and cultural criticisms? Hasn't anyone seen the Mechademia papers published by Univ of Minnesota press, or Dr. Susan J Napier's writings, or how about Robot Ghosts and Wired Dreams. There is a fascinating paper about Eva and Lain in the book, not to mention many wonderful articles examining Japanese science fiction and anime. Try Hiroki Azuma's English site and read his piece titled "Anime or Something Like it" After that, realize your mind's aren't equipped to appreciate Eva and then watch some Bleach or Naruto, it won't cause you to think , so no worries.

    Eva is the finest piece of animation to be created thus far. The only thing that comes even close to it is Ghost in the Shell, works by Satoshi Kon, and maybe Lain but that's being awful generous.

    Eva= good basic idea, good start, good evolution,good animation,good characters, creative work, good en... wait.... no, the end isn't good... the end is a piece of sh@#@$#$

    Gundam = tier list...

    high tier: Zeta, seed, F91, unicorn, char's counter attack, 08 MS Team
    mid tier: gundam 00, victory, turn a gundam,wing ..
    low tier: seed desteny, ZZ, X
    lol(W) tier: super deformed, G Gundam (lol master)

    final conclusion...
    Gudam and eva < Tengen toppa guren lagann!!!!!!!!

    Dorks with acne watch Gundam. Cool people watch EVA. FACT

    And there's nothing with Shinji being gay, you bigots!

    Shinji is a worthless gay. I wouldn't really mind him being gay if he wasn't worthless.

    I suppose there's one or two good shows on Gundam side although their essence is completely different. EVA is more psychological and Gundam is more about war and its consequences on the young and old generations.

    Gundam are cooler, but srsly, I think evas could kick their asses, they can run and are much bigger. I'm speaking of course of old school rx 78 models tho. I don't know about all this 00

    Humanoid Robot that becomes god and turns everyone into LCL vs. Robots that have long boring unoriginal space battles. I think it's obvious who wins.

    Woah, there. They're both awesome, and both of them have fujoshi in the fanbase. It's just there are more women interested in Evangelion because KaworuxShinji came really close to canon and they squealed over it.
    I'm still for Gundams, since light shows and full-scale statues are more awesome than disembodied heads.

    The only thing this actually proves is that Gundam is a much older anime with older fans.

    Mobile Suit Gundam: April 7, 1979
    Neon Genesis Evangelion: October 4, 1995
    Thats a 16 year difference.

    Also deep in the corners of 2channel Otaku say that if you try to compare the two series Char will come for you piloting a Eva and kill you by mindfuck.

    Derp.
