One of the best aspects of Eva is how sex is played, I mean, Misato as a character, Asuka/Rei contrast, Gendo and his wacky adventures...
Do you remember that scene in which Azuka is in the hospital and Shinji says "I'm despicable" or something along. There is speculation about him masturbating in that scene, and it is a powerful scene, you know, the girl there, everyone dying... Sometimes sex fleshes out characters, even when they're 14-15.
To develop their conscience and consciousness, to make them aware of what is going on, to prepare the precarious ground for the future alternatives—this is our task: "our" not only as Marxists but as intellectuals, and that means all those who are still free and able to think by themselves and against indoctrination, communist as well as anticommunist.
