Now, this was very patronizing and arrogant. And please do not hide
behind a finger by saying you formally didn't accuse point it towards
anyone in particular.
Thank you for bunching everybody but you into one single heap that, "in
the late 1990's", was basically a crowd of ignorant morons who could
only passively wait for their head to be filled with misconceptions
until you arrived to liberate their minds.

Yes, yes. And, Anno also declared that he didn't make Eva as part of a
cathartic process during his depression but only because he wanted to
have fun doing it.
More often than not, certain answers come out of a certain polite
formality that is ingrained in Japanese culture. Just as often, a
sentence conveys more than one concept and can be taken at more than
just face value.
And I have to ask just *what* "sea of giant robot shows" we're talking
about, since the genre was defunct by the late 80's.
