Britain was a Colonial Empire for *centuries*. Germany was smashed in
WWI and WWII because, as the newcomer it was, it dared try and play the
grownups' game and was denied a piece of the action by the established
powers (USA, UK and Russia).

It's a bit simpler than that. If you look at anime/manga at that time (
but also other fields - I seem to distantly recall some fashion shop
names, for example), German as a language was the cool thing of the
moment. Evangelion just amplified a trend.
