Twitter user”Neon Genesis HAGOV (@HAGOVgelion)” has recently become a trend after it was revealed that there is a thesis in the institutional repository of the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador to obtain the professional title of clinical psychologist based on a franchise Neon Genesis Evangelionwithin the institution’s Faculty of Psychology.
The title of the thesis is “Adolescent crises are portrayed in an audio-visual medium. A psychological analysis of the last three chapters of the Japanese animation work “Evangelion”, broadcast period 1996“, and was awarded in 2013 in Quito, Ecuador. We can also review the abstract sent Brian Albanauthor of the article.
- Audiovisual media such as: “Evangelion” describes the crisis that the teenager is going through. In the work to be analyzed, the main character’s speeches reveal discomfort towards others, which manifests itself as a complaint about “not feeling love”. The adolescent cannot fully understand his own changes and also believes that he is misunderstood, that he feels unloved by others and especially by his parents.
- Adolescence is a psychological and physical process, with general characteristics that affect everyone in a particular way. The sudden changes produced by adolescence confuse the subject, which many authors define as a “crisis”. Adolescence can manifest itself in different ways. On the one hand, hormones produce the most significant body changes that begin with puberty; and, on the other hand, there are also the changes in social roles, which bring new duties and responsibilities.
A constant in adolescence is change, which comprehensively affects the entire subject, therefore, adolescence cannot be classified under the concept of stage, stage or stage, unique or non-viable; but what is clear during adolescence and in the main character of the series is the discomfort of not feeling loved, which leads the youth to a state of depressive hysteria.

Fourteen-year-old Shinji Ikari is brought to the headquarters of NERV, an underground organization run by his estranged father, Gendou. He asks Shinji to pilot an “Evangelion”, a giant android built to fight against the evil and destructive alien creatures called “Angels” that have transformed the planet and threaten the survival of the remaining human race. .
Although Shinji is reluctant at first, Shinji is won over by the idea of reuniting with his father and agrees to help humanity’s dangerous quest against the alien threat, as the pilot of Evangelion Unit-01. Shinji must find the courage and determination to resist the Angels’ invasion before it is too late, and she is in the middle of a dangerous battle.
