Different anon, but just want to point out that people with attitudes like yours are exactly why cartoons will always be stagnate and afraid to do interesting or serious things. Ever wonder why there are no cartoons approaching the kinds of themes Eva did without dressing it in layers of sarcasm and irony? Its because on the rare occasion that the cartoon being made isn't a toy advertisement, the staff likely gets scared of people like you who shit on everything that shows even a little bit of sincerity and heart. "Aha wow I have depression and I drink to deal with it aha jk jk but no really" is a lot harder to criticize than a real attempt to portray depression and alcoholism, so that's the approach cartoons seem to go for. Anime might not always get the serious moments right, in fact usually it fails hard, but at least its a medium that's willing to put itself out there and try.
