Warning: that article is somewhat misinformation. Anno didn’t make Ogata choke Miyamura: Ogata came up with the idea, and Miyamura agreed to it. That “QMisato” lady has been trying to cancel Anno for a long time, so she can’t really be trusted. The rest is correct, though.
Oh, I didn't know. I was not judging Anno for it anyways. I just found the article to be interesting (aside from some grammatical mistakes), that's why I shared with you guys. Anyway, I had seen this story in several places and it was almost never different. Thanks for warning me, I guess hahaha!
By the way, the fact that Miyamura agreed to be choked is common sense. Imagine if Ogata had just jumped on her out of nowhere hahahahaha. I still feel a little bad for her, though. Recording this scene must not have been a pleasant experience. Interpreting Asuka, in general, must have been a very difficult task. But then again, I'm grateful for her! She brought my favorite character to life!EDIT 1:
I was doing some research and this is what I got. According to EvaWiki (from evageeks it self), the ending I was talking about was actually planned (https://wiki.evageeks.org/Episode_26%27
). Also, according to Evamonkey (who seems to be a legit source), "kimochi warui" was a line thought by Miyamura (http://www.evamonkey.com/writings/mdwig ... -warui.php
). I was just not able to find anything related to the "choke" and "question" incidents yet (precisely the most absurd parts). But I swear I've heard about it before (Buster Machine 4 seems to be familiar with it too).
Finally, I believe that QMisato did not write the article herself. I found the exact same one in another page hahahahaEDIT 2: AH HA! I FOUND IT! It is on EvaWiki (evageeks itself)! BusterMachine4 was completely right! https://wiki.evageeks.org/Statements_by_Evangelion_Staff
Rough translation of her talk is as follows:
I had been thinking directors should convey their ideal how the show shold be to us. But Anno pitches us questions such as "What do you think for yourself if things went on such and such ways to you?" After recording all lines of the movie, I was called to the studio because the final line needed to be revised. Ogata came there too as it was Asuka and Shinji's scene. Asuka's final line was "Anta nankani korosareru nowa mappira yo!" in the film scenario. Anno didn't live with my line no matter how many times I tried. Ogata and I were at a loss how we should play what Anno wanted to express; she even tried to ride on me and choke me to meet his demand. He must have been pursuing reality. Concerning the final line we adopted, I'm not sure whether I should say about it in fact. At last Anno asked me "Miyamura, just imagine you are sleeping in your bed and a stranger sneaks into your room. He can rape you anytime as you are asleep but he doesn't. Instead, he masturbates looking at you, when you wake up and know what he did to you. What do you think you would say?" I had been thinking he was a strange man, but at that moment I felt disgusting. So I told him that I thought "Disgusting". And then he sighed and said "... thought as much." He said. " I thought as much. "
Take a look at this interview with Ogata as well (EvaWiki pointed it as a source). https://web.archive.org/web/20010507021 ... gata1.html
Man, I feel bad for Miyamura...
