Close-up of Rei beyond Shinji,
Rei turns her eyes away as she speaks.
It would be GREAT if there was a faint air of “bewilderment” here!!
REI:“I’m sorry. …I don’t know what kind of expression I should make at times like this.”
Kendrix: She even apolpgizes, perhaps fearing that she might have done something wrong that made Shinji cry.
thewayneiac: Actually, I think she's apologizing for not knowing how to react to his tears.
InstrumentalityOne: And this is the cut when Rei went from mysterious(creepy?) to unintentionally cute/moe.
