AOBA (OFF):“We just got this report from the patrolling battlecruiser Haruna. "Huge submerged object detected off Ki'i peninsula. Sending data."”

UrsusArctos: The Ki'i Peninsula is to the south-west of Hakone, as is Suruga bay where the Angel surfaces, which means it was walking a straight line up under the coast from the south-west to the north-east. (See additional comments about the Haruna)



Additional Commentary  

UrsusArctos: Although the ADV dub and subtitles call the Haruna a "battlecruiser", the Japanese term used is jun'yokan, meaning "cruiser", as opposed to jun'yosenkan or literally "cruiser battleship" for a battlecruiser. The Netflix version corrects this. The really was a Kongo-class battlecruiser called the Haruna, sunk during the Second World War, and there has since been the helicopter destroyer Haruna which made it into service till 2009, although it's no battlecruiser. Since the largest vessels of the JMSDF, including their helicopter carriers, take on the name "escort ship"(goei-kan) in Japanese or "destroyer" in English to indicate a defensive role rather than an offensive one (as of early 2021), this suggests a genuine change in the status of Japan's maritime forces in this universe. Anno had stronger and more openly supportive feelings about the subject of Japanese militarism in Gunbuster in particular, but that seems to have been toned down significantly in Evangelion.

FUYUTSUKI:“All personnel, go to battle stations, Level One.”

MISATO (OFF):“The recent battle severely damaged”

UrsusArctos: All this time, and they're still at work demolishing Ramiel's corpse.




09 C053.jpg

053

MISATO (OFF):“the intercept system of New Tokyo-3.”

UrsusArctos: It's a bit weird that the corpse should continue to pose problems to Tokyo-3's intercept system. Ramiel was never shown making much of a mess, unlike in Rebuild 1.0 where the Sixth Angel demolished multiple layers of Tokyo-3's defenses.

MISATO (OFF):“Therefore, we'll crush the target in a single blow”




09 C057.jpg

MISATO (OFF):“at the water's edge, right before it makes landfall!”

MISATO:“Units 01 and 02 will mount an attack in a series of waves. In other words, close in and take turns.”

SHINJI & ASUKA:“Roger.”

ASUKA:“This sucks. It's my Japanese debut. Why won't she let me take it out myself?”

SHINJI:“It can't be helped. That's the strategy.”

ASUKA:“Let me tell you something, just don't get in my way! Why did someone like him get chosen to be a pilot?”

MISATO (OFF):“our means to survive.”

Mr. Tines: Establishing that there's mobile infrastructure enough to work around the problem of range anxiety


UrsusArctos: Mobile infrastructure that is pretty cool but seldom used, unfortunately. This episode and the following one are the only times we see the Evas deployed any significant distance outside Tokyo-3.

UrsusArctos: Heeeeere's Israfel! The taijitu (yin-yang) symbol on Israfel's face emerging from the spray makes it look very cool and intimidating in this shot, but as we'll see, Israfel is one of the weaker Angels.

UrsusArctos: The sign on the building being smashed says "Studio Fantasia", which is the name of the studio that helped animate Gainax's Otaku no Video. I believe this was first spotted on the ancient Eva mailing list but the sole reference I have for that is this archived thread. According to Dr. Nick, animation studios getting smashed is a running joke in anime. Macross did the same thing with Artland and Studio Nue buildings, which is where Anno picked up the joke from. (EDIT: I really should have checked the credits- Studio Fantasia animated this episode! See the comment from Dr. Nick below)


Dr. Nick: I popped in my Platinum 02 disc to confirm this, and Studio Fantasia is credited as one of the cel painting studios of this very episode. According to the ANN encyclopedia, they did cel painting on Episodes 8, 9 and 11, so this probably counts as self-destruction. This sort of cheeky studio self-destruction also comes in other, related forms. If you're into 1990s anime, keep your eyes peeled for the always-crashing Sunrise Air Lines.

UrsusArctos: Israfel, like Sachiel, blinks uncomprehendingly at an incoming attack. Unlike Cut 071, the two halves of the yin-yang have a blue/pink color contrast.

Zusuchan: I so hope I'm not the only one who finds this shot quite sexual. (Also note that Asuka would be the dominant party here).




09 C093a.jpg

09 C093b.jpg

ASUKA:“Well, Third Child?! A fight should be elegant and without waste.”

UrsusArctos: You'd have a kill and full bragging rights if that had been any other Angel, but this one has a surprise you won't like...

Zusuchan: Not really sure what that does to my previous glimpse of sexual metaphors, unless the twins are the result of Asuka's horrifying rape of their mother or something? This has really gone into awfulness quite quickly, but for my defense, I would like to point out Anno does love his fucked-up sexual metaphors too.


Dr. Nick: This splitting ability is a classic monster of the week gimmick, seen for example in Tadao Nagahama's super robot shows, although the monsters in those tend to be mechanical rather than meaty. I'm a bit disappointed we don't get to see any of the usual sandwiching action here, but of course, the following quick off-screen defeat is probably funnier.

UrsusArctos: And the Israfel twins are now fully formed and ready to fight! If I remember right, that three-eye arrangement was on the turrets of some of the Neo-Atlantis vehicles in Nadia which is the most likely reference to it (although there are other three-eyes from the same era, like the Pfhor from Bungie's Marathon). Like the previous face, the new face has a slight beak at the bottom.

MISATO:“That's cheating!”

UrsusArctos: So, did Israfel eyebeam the Evas to send them flying, or simply throw them? I could never tell. And I'm surprised that Misato didn't land up with plastic splinters in her hand after crushing that phone.
