BGM Start: E-6 [ANGEL ATTACK]

The Angel approaching on the monitor!

SHINJI (OFF):“It's back again!”




08 C223a.jpg

08 C223c.jpg

08 C223d.jpg

223

The two in the entry plug. We can tell from the movement of her arms that she is operating the Eva.

ASUKA:“Hmph. I'll bring it down this time.”

SE <<Kachack-rrr>>




08 C224a.jpg

08 C224b.jpg

224

Unit-02, limp. Unmoving.
It is carried slowly along by the currents.

SE <<(Silence)>>

SEELE-01: I mean... Why couldn't it move? Water pressure? And why can it suddenly force the jaw open like nobody's business later on?




08 C225a.jpg

08 C225b.jpg

08 C225c.jpg

08 C225d.jpg

225

Asuka leans forward.

ASUKA:“W-what! It's not working!”

SHINJI:“It's using B-type equipment.”

UrsusArctos: Shinji confirms what the XO said earlier - B-type equipment doesn't work underwater. This is something you think Asuka ought to know about since she's been training with Eva-02 since well before Shinji got in Eva-01, but she neglects that basic operational fact. And then she has the gall to turn to Shinji for a solution to her blunder.



08 C225f.jpg

08 C225g.jpg

08 C225h.jpg

Panic.
Asuka loses confidence.

ASUKA:“What do we do!”

SHINJI:“What can we do...”

08 C225i.jpg

08 C225l.jpg

08 C225n.jpg

Asuka loses her temper with the weak-hearted Shinji.
She speaks huffily.

ASUKA:“This is pathetic. Considering you're the Third Children!”

SHINJI:“It's here!”


08 C226a.jpg

08 C226b.jpg

226

The Angel approaching, with the limp Unit-02 in the foreground.

SE <<GlubglubglubglubGLUBGLUB>>




08 C227a.jpg

08 C227c.jpg

227

Unit-02 barely managing to lift its head.




08 C228a.jpg

08 C228c.jpg

08 C228d.jpg

228

The Angel's face separates into two parts, becoming a mouth. Inside the mouth is a shining sphere.

SE <<VWHOOOAR>>

UrsusArctos: The script description is odd, it reads to me like Gaghiel didn't have a mouth until it decided to give itself one on the fly to bite the Eva with. The teeth inside look to be arrayed in rows like a shark's teeth but appear to be conical in shape rather than serrated and triangular like in most carnivorous sharks.




08 C229a.jpg

08 C229b.jpg

08 C229c.jpg

08 C229d.jpg

08 C229e.jpg

08 C229f.jpg

229

The two inside the entry plug.
Asuka openly demonstrates a physical revulsion.

ASUKA:“A MOUTH!?”

SHINJI:“It's an Angel.”

Line: Beautiful and frightening mouth at the same time. I understand Asuka's repulsion. Who wouldn't be repulsed? So...This Angel wanted to eat them, I guess?...




08 C230a.jpg

08 C230b.jpg

08 C230c.jpg

230

The Angel, with Unit-02 in the foreground.
The mouth advances until it fills up the entire screen!

SE <<VSHOOOAR>>




08 C231a.jpg

08 C231b.jpg

08 C231c.jpg

08 C231d.jpg

231

The Angel advances!
Unit-02 is snapped up by it!
(With half of its body outside)

SE <<Vwhooooar>>

UrsusArctos: Those jaws look like vegetable-cutting scissors from the side.




08 C232a.jpg

08 C232b.jpg

08 C232c.jpg

08 C232d.jpg

08 C232e.jpg

232

Asuka inside the cockpit.

BOTH:“Waaaaah — *shrieeek*

The two are thrown wildly about from side to side.
Shinji flies into Asuka's chest.

SHINJI:“Waaaaah —”

ASUKA:“*Screeeam*!”




08 C233.jpg

233

The group looking beneath the surface of the water.
Toji gives his honest perspective.

SPEAKER (OFF):“Eva Unit-02 has entered the target's body.”

TOJI:“Doesn't that mean they've been eaten?”

UrsusArctos: Kensuke's finally keeping his eyes peeled for where the action really is. I like how they're all so focused searching for something that's too deep to be in sight.




08 C234a.jpg

08 C234b.jpg

08 C234c.jpg

234

The Angel moving through the water (in silhouette), with Eva's cable sticking out of its mouth.

SE <<Vwooooosh>>




08 C235a.jpg

08 C235b.jpg

08 C235c.jpg

08 C235d.jpg

235

Toji, murmuring, gives his honest impression.

TOJI:“It's just like fishing.”

Something strikes Misato.

MISATO:“Fishing? That's right, fishing!”

Toji is startled by her words (perhaps he said something he shouldn't have).

UrsusArctos: Be happy, Toji! You inspired Misato with her next wild idea for victory!




08 C236a.jpg

08 C236b.jpg

236

Unit-02, caught in the Angel's mouth.
Its lower half dangles pathetically.

SE <<Voooosh>>




08 C237a.jpg

08 C237b.jpg

08 C237c.jpg

08 C237e.jpg

08 C237g.jpg

08 C237h.jpg

08 C237i.jpg

237

Shinji riding on Asuka.

SHINJI:“We're right back in a tight spot.”

ASUKA:“Shut up.”

The monitor shows the inside of the Angel's mouth.
Asuka, suddenly noticing Shinji against her chest, jerks him off of her.

ASUKA:“(She suddenly realizes)
Get off me already, you pervert!”

Shinji looks up at the monitor.

SHINJI:“But if we don't get free somehow —”

MISATO (OFF - RADIO):“Asuka, can you hear me?”

Asuka reacts to hearing Misato's voice on the radio.




08 C238a.jpg

238

Misato shouting into the microphone.

MISATO:“DON'T LET GO OF IT, NO MATTER WHAT!!

BGM End: E-6 [ANGEL ATTACK]




08 C239b.jpg

08 C239c.jpg

239

The two blink.

SHINJI AND ASUKA:“Huh?”

Sailor Star Dust: This episode is seriously just too fun, despite the underlying character drama surrounding Adam.


UrsusArctos: Adam? Adam who? Adam West?!? Holy hot potatoes, Batman! Heh, the whole "something is seriously shady here" subtext just gets lost in the fun!



08 C240a.jpg

08 C240c.jpg

240

Misato faces the camera with a firm, businesslike expression, lowering the microphone.

MISATO (Turning around):“Captain.”




08 C241.jpg

241

The captain and first officer.

CAPTAIN:“What?”




08 C242.jpg

242

Misato, resolved, with a serious expression.

MISATO:“I ask for your cooperation.”




08 C243.jpg

243

The captain and first officer.

CAPTAIN AND FIRST OFFICER:“......”




08 C244b.jpg

244

Super telephoto, compressed perspective shot of the battleships.

— Pause —

CAPTAIN (OFF):“A point-blank assault by two of the surviving battleships!?”

UrsusArctos: The ADV dub goofs by rendering the line "A point blank assault by the two surviving battleships?" implying that these were the only two battleships that survived, which is clearly not true since we see one later. Naval nerd note - these Iowa-class battleships are missing their bow "Christmas tree" antennae, which all members of the class received in the 1980s. More on them in the next cut.
