The director playa dumb saying he chose a lot of the names and titles of the show "because they sounded cool", but he grew up catholic from what I saw in his interviews, so I dont actually beleibe that statment. A new world.order government trying to reset humanity and responisble for resurected the "angels" in amtaetica…"create a new man to become gods"…
Trying to get the japamese otaku and neets to get up and move forward along side some hidden agenda message.
Two girls, Rei, and Asuka. Two supposedly the frued arc type of being babied by your mother under the parents home never working to achieve anything.
Asuka, the woman of motivation that takes work to achieve or win her affection like any woman at the time in Japan. Work.
He wanted to tell the otaku he understood that no one else in society understood, but they had to find the answer or confronting their inner problems.
Watching the show and it's pretty easy to understand once you have context backgrounds of 90s japan or pne themselves was a social outcast.
