The Angel's attack in the monitor, Shinji in front. Cracks start to form in the monitor and noise appears on-screen.
SE <<KA-BAM, KA-BAM>>
HeWhoPostsStuff: I wonder what exactly is being cracked here… The following cut says that the Eva's skull is being fractured, but does that imply that the camera recording the visuals for the front cockpit screen goes through the forehead someplace?
Reichu: You got me… This is just a case of artistic license, IMO.
HeWhoPostsStuff: Another question is how the thing managed to survive so many direct bashings from an object bigger than it is (and energy-charged to boot).
Reichu: Probably the same way that Eva armor in general puts up with all hell and then some. Plus, when it comes down to it, poor Sachiel really is just a wuss. ;;>
Doh! In the previous cut, we see Shinji clutching his eye, whereas here he seems remarkably unconcerned. Recycling (from 207, in this case) always takes precedence over continuity.
