Shinji and Ritsuko look doubtfully at Misato as she tucks in with relish.

They eat the curry at the same time.

K9Thefirst1: There are times when watching an animated production where certain expressions pop out. This shot is one of them: The way the animator's drew Misato's face as she's merrily nomming her toxic sludge food. I'm not saying that I don't like it, just that it sticks out. I like it in fact
Shinji, Ritsuko:“Ugh…”

Yuck! … Misato pays them no mind and keeps enjoying her meal.

K9Thefirst1: Another bit that sticks out is Shinji and Ritsuko's little "OH CRAP!" bolts. Considering who much of Eva steers from that sort of use of the animated medium, it's all the more notice able. ...Then again, it's absence latter on can show how far everything's gone to hell.

thewayneiac: Another example from this same sequence would be the "sick lines" on Pen Pen's face in Cut 154.

Ritsuko (mouth still full):“...Misato made this, didn't she?”

Shinji nods.


Ritsuko is a little angry.

Misato:“You can tell?”

Sailor Star Dust: Misato's delightful "Wakaru?" cracks me up every time. Mitsuishi-san's the best!
Ritsuko, speaks after chewing and swallowing
Xard: I guess the presence of many "animesque" elements throughout this scene are explained by the fact Junichi Satoh (director of Aria, Princess Tutu etc.) made the storyboards (credited as Kiichi Jinme). Platinum booklets specifically draws attention to this:

"The storyboards were done by Kiichi Jinme, a.k.a. Junichi Satoh, the same as for Episode Four. Rei's girlishly delighted look when Gendo appears and the comedy during the dinner scene where Misato pours curry into her ramen are distinctively Jinme's storyboard style."

Those of us who have seen man's own works propably go "ahh, figures" upon reading this.

Ritsuko:“Yeah, from the taste.”
