'EVANGELION: 1.0 YOU ARE (NOT) ALONE.' Interview with Hideaki Anno #3

Film and digital are completely different things.InterviewerIs there a reason why the plan of renting a room at some other studio and making it there didn't work out?AnnoThere weren't many studios that were willing to take on "Evangelion". Many of them in the industry took it more nervous anime work to take on than I had expected. They didn't like it 10 years ago, but that hadn't changed much.

Interview on "Neon Genesis Evangelion" #4

Interview on "Neon Genesis Evangelion" #3

A constant and tense battle against regulations--Compared to other genres, the quality of "Eva" is quite high. Did you have any expectation of that kind of evaluation?AnnoI didn't have any expectations, but I did have hopes.
