I recall reading a source posted here once that mentioned that a member of the staff for the show was killed by Aum Shinrinkyo cultists halfway into development. It might have been in the Shizo and Parano books, though I'm having trouble finding it. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?

The Aum Shinryko gas bombings made Anno adjust the plot halfway through an episodes production because part of the plot for the episode had a very similar scene to the subway attack. Like how American productions had to remove the world Trade centers from movies that were on production on 9/11.

No employee was killed in the attack. While hundreds were injured by the gas attack. Only 18 died. I find it highly unlikely one of those 18 was a Gainax animator.
