A panoramic view of the scene (seen from the direction of the stage).
There are tables lined up in rows.
The room is full, with the exception of NERV's place in the center.
TOKITA (OFF・SPEAKER):“Later on, you will be observing the official demonstration from the control room.”
UrsusArctos: This shot gives the impression that the tables are arranged like the Sephirot, with Misato and Ritsuko in the "Da'at" position. A subtle inclusion of a recurring motif in the show, or am I reading too much into this?
imprimatur13: Are you, UA? Well, maybe, but still cool :).
Anyway, I notice there are not NEARLY enough chairs for everyone there... I guess the standing people aren't important enough to warrant seats? Lower-level government employees, reporters, etc., I imagine.
