posted on 2015-12-04 13:15 EST by Carlos Cadorniga

Voice actress Megumi Ogata has recently opened up about the physical and emotional strain that playing Neon Genesis Evangelion's Shinji Ikari has on her.

In a string of recent Tweets posted on November 30, Ogata wrote about how Evangelion affects her both physically and mentally.

One Tweet read: "Blood Pressure up by 300%! The, the Evas still haunt me!"

Another Tweet stated: "I'm not even kidding, I feel so desperate. It's difficult to deal with, but I have to try my best!"

Ogata is reprising her role in the Evangelion film series. In a more-detailed post, she tweeted: "Playing Shinji and screaming so much, it always gives me a headache. My blood pressure feels like it's rising and my back and waist feel like they are throbbing so much."

This is the second series of tweets by Ogata giving a behind-the-scenes look at her roles. She opened up a few weeks ago about the director's choice to cast her as Yugi Mutou in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.
