A certain cult began to use Neon Genesis Evangelion at its propagation. And Evangelion-fans begins to decrease.
In the first place the original Eva-fans were interested in the ruin of the world. They wished their vanishing with the virtual ruin of the world. Thereafter each of them declared that he was like Mr. Shinji Ikari.
On the other hand fans of Rei Ayanami and Asuka appeared. They loved the virtual idols Rei and Asuka as they love Shiori Fujisaki, Sakura Shinguji and Misao Makimachi. These fans developed related character goods and bought them up.
The latter are normal people who imitate traditional animation-fans. They saw Eva as a fashion and were satisfied with the conclusion of the cinema "The End of Evangelion."
However those who have trauma on their mind wanted to die. They thought they could die with that animation. Therefore they were not satisfied with the conclusion.
Those who want to enjoy animation simply enjoyed commentaries on Eva as pulp novels and laughed at them. But those who want to die with Eva perused those guidebooks as the sacred books of a certain cult and went to accept the absolute death and came back to the cult.
With a mind to the activity of a servant of a certain cult, Director Hideaki Anno has cried out to his animation-fans for two years that they must come back to the real world. Formerly he always said, "I want to die." However he decides not to die with the normal conclusion of the cinema for the normal people against a certain cult.
By the way I doubt the belief in absolute death. Many years ago I saw the corpse of my grandfather. He was 79 years old then. I did not feel his death actually. Thereafter I felt the concept of death actually when I touched a specimen for pathology. I was a fan of Tsukasa Itou. She was a 15-year-old idol star in 1981. The internal organ specimen originated from a man who was born in 1962 and who died in 1980. Of course he did not know her and did not know a TV program called "San Nen B Gumi Kinpachi Sensei" in which she got popular.
From then my seniors and classmates died. I said he did not know Ms Youko Minamino when I went to a meeting of Youko-fans. I said he did not know Megumi Hayashibara when I went to an address in the stage of a movie theater. Yokohama Baystars, a professional baseball team in Japan begin to win at present. If I see they win the championship I will be glad that it is good that I am alive. Baystars has not won the championship for 37 years. I think that is how to enjoy our lives and the entertainment.
