Unlike in the original NGE Gendo, Osamu was actually a very loving father to Hisako, however it was the Second Impact, and the following loss of his wife, Yuka, led him into a crippling mental state. He has dedicated all his time and energy as the head of NERV to his cause, the use the human instrumentality project to reunite him with his wife, even at the expense of abandoning his own daughter without even a second thought, and later using her simply to pilot Unit 01.
This is his desperate attempt - despite how strong he appears on the outside - to reverse the damage and start again, but is utterly oblivious to the fact that the only damage is within himself.
Latley, Osamu can be described as so: responsible, planner, private, loner tendencies, perfectionist, organized, detail oriented, organized, would rather be friendless than jobless, realistic, observer, clean, focused, does not talk about feelings, finisher, punctual, does not appreciate strangeness, not adventurous, not spontaneous, follows the rules, dutiful, avoids mistakes, conventional, likes solitude, insensitive to the hardships of others, prepared, anti-tattoos, things rules are important, cautious, security seeking, prepares for worst case scenarios, logical, analytical, does not accept apologies easily, hard working
Indeed, Osamu's personality is the polar opposite to that of his daughter Hisako, so there's no doubt that there'd be a vast difference in opinions and a great misunderstanding between them.
Time has only allowed for this gap to grow wider, and with such a prolonged detachment from love and society in general , Osamu has become dreadfully indifferent to emotions and personal interest in the world, believing that he will have time for it later when he is reunited with Yuka.
This section contains plot details about an upcoming episode.
In time the events change him. Eventually, unlike Gendo, he learns that the only thing Yuka wanted wanted was to protect their daughter - That's why she made the ultimate sacrifice to become the soul for Unit one so that she knew she could always watch over her. Eventually, Osamu learns with the help of Hisako herself and Mizuki, to love his daughter, and to be happy - learning that he could simply project the love of his wife onto his daughter to get through the pain. As if Yuka herself still existed the entire time through Hisako
