    Lol sorting your MAL from lowest rating to highest makes a pretty good representation of my Anime taste. We couldn't be more apart on that stuff. Lain, Akira, Summer Wars, NGE at 4? All very high for me.

    Lain might have been higher if I watched it back in the day but I just thought it was pretentious and seemed like it was written by someone who didn't really understand tech. The social commentary wasn't bad though.

    Summer Wars was just shit to me. Didn't care for the animation or story. I did like that they mentioned how much better CRTs are for input lag though.

    NGE is another one I think is pretentious and it's notorious for how bad the ending is. Asuka is a top tier waifu though.

    Akira is ok, just way overrated. The story doesn't make any damn sense but I hear the manga is better.

    I think it is just old. Also it is an Anime where basically all of the weird conspiracy theories are true. They sometimes throw them in, and all of them exist IRL. The world works on Illuminati physics basically.
    I went in with low expectations since I expected it to be edgy and pretentious, but it really hit my nerve.

    In general I have nothing against the concept of explaining a bad ending away by making it vague, open and "deep". Makes for good skub and pointless video essays.
    So I see stuff like Akira and NGE just for the very interesting ideas and their flaws don't really scratch me.
