I've come to the conclusion that I don't like anime. If one's own highest rated anime hates itself and its own media, then there's little reason to force oneself to keep up the charade. Granted, I occasionally indulge myself in some stupid clips from various shows and nostalgia over Gundam, but not enough to watch an entire episode. So I guess Evangelion's goal of killing anime worked on me.
I know the composer for X also worked on Attack on Titan, but I've no interest in it beyond that.
You do have a point about the jets, that was somefin they should have worked around better.
In regards to pmmm, there are quite a few plotholes and most of them irritate me.
