"[Akadot]: Earlier today you said that you were trying to broaden
the genre by giving Eva a sad ending. Does the sameness of much of
today's anime bore you?
Kazuya Tsurumaki: First of all we didn't use a sad ending to
annoy fans. When they're upset, that really bothers us. Personally, I
think a happy ending is fine, but not if it is achieved too easily.
That's no good."
