I still don't see why people praise this so highly. The plot doesn't just make no sense, it actively defies sense by contradicting itself several times. The main characters are so annoying I'm actively rooting for them to die, like in a horror movie. While it started out as "so bad it's funny," by the last 4 or 5 episodes we got slammed with so much tragedy-drama that I couldn't even laugh at it anymore. The only way the show could have been redeemed, would be if it turned out that this was all a power play by General Ikari, who invented the Angels in the first place, then of course developed the only weapon that could stop them, thus making him the most powerful man on Earth. But nope, they want us to take the ridiculous plot at face value, so we can't even have that headcannon.
