3.0 Kaworu’s Death – Ogata
Ogata: During this recording, Anno-san said “Just perform as you think it’d sound” to me for a lot of the scenes, but in 3.0 a lot of the nuances of the lines changed when I got onto the stage for it. So when we were recording for when Kaworu-kun died, I thought “Oh no…how will I say these lines…” and got extremely troubled. And when that happened, Anno-san said “Hmm, so after this, Ogata-san doesn’t want to speak anymore, right?” And I said “Yes!”
“Then, from here on out, let’s cut all of Shinji’s lines.”
“Thank you very much!” —is what we said (laugh) In that moment, Anno-san had a 400% synchro ratio with Shinji! (laughs)

Shinji’s line was, “No matter what I do, it is all useless” or something like that.
