You're not oblivious; we're all in the dark. ^_^
>OAV's and movies that Anno has worked on in the biographical section (but
>me if I'm wrong). I don't know much about Mr. Hideaki. What problems was he
Neither do we, or the Japanese fans, for that matter. But I would like to know.
>trying to work out through Eva? Why is Anno depressive and how was his life
Gareth has supplied some information that states Shinji's famous "nigecha
dame da" (I mustn't run away) was Anno's own mantra when confronted with his
problem of alcoholism.
Other hypotheses have been financial trouble (unlikely) and family problems
(given the nature of EVA's character relations, probable) among other things.
>painful? Is there a place on the web where I can find a detailed biography of
>Anno? Sorry for this non-Eva topic, but I'm just curious.
It's EVA topic (I think) but I'll have to disappoint you; to my knowledge, a
source like that does not exist. I'd love to see a Japanese essay book on
him, but no go...
