Hyuga (OFF):“Currently, our intercept system is only 7.5% effective.”
HeWhoPostsStuff: Well, thanks for playing ‘Defenders of Humanity’, your parting gifts are backstage. Be sure to tune in next week, same Nerv time, same Nerv channel!”
thewayneiac: Why do they disappear into a hole in the floor? Where does it go?
Reichu: An even better question is why they leave at all! Any man with an Abraham Lincoln beard, Mickey Mouse gloves, and red-tinted glasses is no man to be trusted!
Sharp-kun: “Currently, our intercept system is only 7.5% effective.” Of course, even when 100% complete Nerv's “intercept system” has utterly no effect on the Angels (and later against the JSSDF). You have to wonder why they even built the thing.
Shin-seiki: Having all that (useless) firepower is consistent with Nerv's ostensible purpose of fighting the Angels, and serves to camouflage its true purpose (initiating HIP).
Sharp-kun: Not really. As soon as they fought Sachiel, everyone knew they had the Evas and that conventional weapons were useless. They could have had just as good a cover without the intercept system.
Shin-seiki: Well, this is (on the surface, at any rate) an action-oriented anime; one can never have too many guns, missiles, and explosions…
Reichu: Notice how the Nerv mark is on the wall behind the command chair. This logo is just ALL over the place. Mr. Browning's estate must be getting some big-ass royalties.
