When asked again, “What kind of existence was Shinji Ikari?” “When I was doing the TV series, I thought it was the exact opposite of myself. I’m sorry to say it strangely, but 26 years later, I am now. I think he’s Shinji, “he said, and there was a change in his feelings toward Shinji. Regarding the scenes and dialogues that left an impression so far, he smiled, “There are too many … I can’t say anything, so let me answer all.”

When asked, “What is Evangelion for you?” He answered straight, “I think it’s another 14-year-old memory of myself.” And in the final greeting, “I don’t know if I can meet Shinji in the future, but I will continue to do my best so that I can return to the age of 14 no matter when I call him.
