085

Super telephoto shot of the tanker.
There is a covering on the bow deck. A helicopter is parked on top of the bridge.

086

Asuka's shadow, seen upon the canvas.
Asuka (with a proud manner) grabs the canvas at the bottom edge of the screen and rolls it upwards.

SE <<Rustle!!>>

Shinji wears a blank look behind her.

SHINJI:“...It's red, Unit-02.
I didn't know that.”

ASUKA:“It's not just the coloring that's different.”

Line: Why does Asuka remind me so much of Misty from Pokemon? She always did, but particularly in this caption and I dunno why.




087
Missing number.
Line: Such an interesting shot. Too bad they cut it.


UrsusArctos: Is the intended blank look puzzlement? Curiosity? I can't figure this one out. There's nothing indicative in the text either.

08 C088d.jpg

088

Unit-02, submerged in a pool inside the cabin.
Shinji stands on its head.
Asuka stands on its back.
She speaks triumphantly.

ASUKA (OFF~ON):“After all, Units 00 and 01 were the prototype and test type of the development process. The fact that it synchronized with you, who had no training, is good evidence of that.”

UrsusArctos: The position Eva-02 is lying in reminds me of the image of Adam being excavated from Antarctica [1]. The script says that Shinji stands on Eva-02's head, but he's obviously on the pontoon beside it, while Asuka demonstrates, yet again, that kids in this universe can hop up to impossible-to-reach parts of mecha.




08 C089.jpg

089

Shinji, looked down upon.

SHINJI:“......”

ASUKA (OFF):“But this Unit, Unit-02, is different.”

Line: Seriously Asuka stop going on such huge platforms! She will seriously hurt herself at some point if she continues this dangerous habit! Oh, wait...It already happened. *Pride before a Fall tvtropes page flashback appears*




08 C090a.jpg

08 C090b.jpg

08 C090c.jpg

08 C090d.jpg

090

Low angle shot of Asuka, on her high horse.

ASUKA:“This Unit, created for actual combat, is the world's first...”

Mr. Tines: As in cut 018, and 083 Asuka is on the high ground, placing herself above the unknown quantity of the Third Child.


thewayneiac: I'm surprised she didn't suddenly realize that he could see up her skirt, and jump down and slap him.


Javi2541997: Here in the Hispanic countries we made a meme about this scene called "Feliz Jueves", Happy Thursday.


091

The enormous Unit-02, lying in the pool.

ASUKA:“...true Evangelion.
The official model.”

There is a sudden tremor.

SE <<Thud>>




08 C092a.jpg

08 C092b.jpg

092

Shinji, in a panic.

SHINJI:“W......what was that?”

A delayed shock-wave shakes the surface of the water.

SE <<Boooom>>

ASUKA (OFF):“An underwater shock wave!”




08 C093.jpg

093

Asuka, somewhat tense.

ASUKA:“The explosion was nearby!”




08 C094a.jpg

08 C094b.jpg

08 C094c.jpg

08 C094d.jpg

094

On the deck of the ship.

SE <<Footsteps - Tap tap tap tap tap...>>

Asuka appears, followed by Shinji.
They look out to sea, leaning over the railing.

SHINJI:“...What's that?”




08 C095a.jpg

08 C095b.jpg

08 C095c.jpg

095

Their perspective. The bridge section of a cruiser has been destroyed. A moment passes, and then there is a small explosion.

SE <<Rumble>>

08 C095d.jpg

A column of water shoots up from the surface of the sea in front of it. The columns proceed towards the right.

SE <<Fsshhhh fwssssh>>


08 C096.jpg

096

Shinji and Asuka stare out across the water in mute amazement.

SHINJI:“It can't be... an Angel!?”

ASUKA:“That!? A real one?”




08 C097a.jpg

08 C097b.jpg

08 C097c.jpg

097

A column of water shoots up behind a cruiser!

SE <<Bkassshhh>>

UrsusArctos: In case you're confused about why the script calls the Russian aircraft carrier Kuznetsov a "cruiser", the Russian designation of the ship is "Heavy Aviation Cruiser", in order for it to get past the Dardanelles and into the Black Sea. Anno really knows his ships!




08 C098a.jpg

08 C098b.jpg

08 C098c.jpg

08 C098d.jpg

08 C098e.jpg

098

Asuka smiles inappropriately, looking at the shaken Shinji out of the corner of her eye. (Her dialogue is delivered like a monologue)

SHINJI:“Oh no, we've got to get back to Misato-san...”

ASUKA:“A cha~~ance.”

Sailor Star Dust: Oof. The scene becomes one of many that are downright painful, come Director's Cut 22'.


Line: This smile of hers is...scary.


Javi2541997: Chaaaance of showing off again and getting recognition from everybody.


Zusuchan: This shows just how much Asuka really wants to prove her greatness-even in the face of an attack by an otherworldly monster, what she thinks of is how good of a chance it is to prove her superiority. In this episode, it might seem like something a bit harmless and in keeping with the lighter tone of the episode, but the rest of the show takes that notion down.
