Sachiel with the rooftops of the buildings in front. The head of the Eva in hand, he lifts her up. EVA-01 is like a marionette whose strings were cut; Sachiel moves like a crane, machinelike.
Reichu: Interesting metaphors… The Evas are repeatedly referred to as "dolls" (ningyou) or "toys" (omocha), while both they and the Angels suffer the indignity of being compared to machines — which, as will be increasingly apparent, neither are. Granted, here the animator certainly did his job; Sachiel's movement is very mechanical, and the accompanying sound effect reinforces this.
