I don't recall seeing the original series being that emphatic on this point; heck, Gendo even seemed to not care one whit about Shinji going AWOL or leaving, at least until NERV ended up in dire straits and Unit 01 outright refused synching with Rei. Oh, well, my memory might be foggy but back then it felt like Shinji was a replaceable cog...unlike now. Why, they even edited the part at the train station, which shows that letting him go is no longer an option for SEELE and co.
