Servbot's review
If Kaoru's a Marty Stu, he's a very well handled one. Quite a few Evangelion fanfic communities had nominated or given him the Best New Character title in their online Evangelion Fanfiction Awards. A considerable feat, considering how Evangelion fanfic communities despise the Marty Stu.

Part of it is that he seems to have gone out of his way to not be a classic Marty Stu. The fact that he placed himself more as an advisor, counselor and friend to the characters demonstrates that he is Genre Savvy enough to avoid trying to fix everything himself, rather than giving the people he wants to help the tools and guidance they need in order to do it themselves helps his case.
