庵野監督から「違う、もうちょっと若かった」…腰が砕けるようなダメ出し受けた三石琴乃がつづる挑戦への心構え

――「エヴァ」シリーズで長くミサト役を演じ、劇場版は昔のテレビシリーズと演じ分けようと考えていた?

写真・根本好伸
 新劇場版の収録のとき、葛城ミサト役は、私がそれまでに培ったもので取り組もうと思ってしゃべったんです。そうしたら庵野秀明監督に「違う。もうちょっと若かった」とか、腰が砕けるようなダメ出しをたくさんもらって(笑)。そこからテレビ版の芝居を目指そうと切り替えました。やはり監督が求めるものイコール観客が求めるものだろうなと。ただ、新劇場版「破」の新しいストーリーに入ってからは、感じたままに取り組みました。「破」は楽しかったな。

Anyone mind help translate it? Software doesn't seem to work well.
It's about her reprising her role in the Evangelion movie - the director Anno said her voice acting wasn't right & had to sound a bit younger. Hence she had to change from the way she used to do in the TV series, as what the director wanted is supposed to be also what the audience would want.

kk thanks!

I think her voice was fine, but Anno's characterization of Misato was off especially in the last 2 movies.

Yeah, the rebuilds were clearly more in line with the current mainstream anime trend: female characters being nothing more than a harem for the main character. Even Maya Ibuki was used for fanservice purposes.
However, reading this is also a relief to me. Anno didn't do that because he thought it would suit his female characters, he did that because he thought it was convenient within the market's circunstances. Still bad, but not awful to me.

I think Rei was ok, but Misato's treatment was terrible in the later 2 movies.

In a message to fans at the end of an interview published in SM Cosmos visual book, Kotono Mitsuishi confirmed that she is saying goodbye to the role of Usagi as voice actor.
