OK. If this thread is unnecessary, take it down.

Has Spike Spencer ever stated or implied that he hates Shinji?

This is something that's been bugging me for quite a while.

I've certainly never seen anything to imply he hates Shinji, from following him on Twitter/FB he's always been quite complementary or proud of the role.

I don't think he hates him, it's more that he wants to understand the character and the series' meaning more but was left feeling frustrated with the lack of answered questions that the ending brought with it.
What will be will be.

He talks about Shinji a bit in this interview (warning - appallingly bad quality; probably worse than you'll tolerate for long enough to get to the point!).

I managed to catch a panel that Spike Spencer was doing in Sydney at SMASH! this year, and he specifically stated that he does not hate Shinji,that he infact loves Shinji, that voicing Shinji has given him opportunities to travel the world and come to all sorts of conventions. He was pretty clear in his feelings that it's just a job for him.

He did, however, say that he hates people telling him to "Get in the robot Shinji".
