09 C101a.jpg

09 C101b.jpg

09 C101c.jpg

101

IBUKI (OFF):“Today, at 10:58:15 AM, Unit 01 was attacked by Target A,”

Zusuchan: Kaji appears quite relaxed considering the situation-he even smirks.




09 C102a.jpg

09 C102b.jpg

102

IBUKI (OFF):“which split from the target submerged 2 km off Suruga Bay.”




09 C103a.jpg

09 C103b.jpg

103

IBUKI (OFF):“At the same time, plus 20 seconds, Unit 02 was halted by Target B.”




09 C104.jpg

104

IBUKI (OFF):“We have a comment from the chair of Project E.”

RITSUKO (OFF):“This is pathetic.”

Dr. Nick: The James Bond of mecha himself, Banjo Haran, once ended up in this pathetic position, but at least he managed to piledrive his enemy to the ground with him.

09 C105b.jpg

09 C105c.jpg

105

ASUKA:“This is all your fault! You totally screwed up my debut battle!”

UrsusArctos: (Added following Zusu's Cut 113 comment) Asuka in this cut and Shinji in the next stand up and cast a shadow upon the humiliating images of their Evas buried in the soil/underwater with their legs sticking up, effectively trying to blank out the disastrous attempt at fighting Israfel. There's something amusing about the way those Nerv hovercraft hovering in the air around the downed Evas like curious hummingbirds.




09 C106a.jpg

09 C106b.jpg

09 C106c.jpg

106

SHINJI:“What are you talking about? You're the one who did something stupid!”




09 C107a.jpg

09 C107b.jpg

107

ASUKA:“Stupid?! Where does a lamebrain like you get off calling me that? That's just shameless!”

SHINJI:“What do you mean?! We got in this trouble because you were in such a rush to defeat it!”

Zusuchan: Shinji actually talking back shows how much he's improved compared to the show's beginning.




09 C108a.jpg

09 C108b.jpg

09 C108c.jpg

09 C108d.jpg

108

ASUKA:“What was that? You look like a drowned rat! How lame!”

SHINJI:“Like you can talk!”

IBUKI (OFF):“At 11:03 AM, NERV abandoned the operation and transferred command to the UN secondary Force.”

UrsusArctos: (Added following Zusu's Cut 113 comment) The pilots stand right in front of the images of their respective Evas, causing the legs of the downed Evas to stick up like bunny ears behind their shadows. It might be a subtle way of poking fun at Shinji and Asuka, and it also provides a way to keep their messup in the background while both of them argue in the foreground.




09 C109.jpg

109

FUYUTSUKI:“You've humiliated us.”

IBUKI (OFF):“At 11:05 AM,”




09 C110a.jpg

09 C110b.jpg

09 C110c.jpg

09 C110d.jpg

09 C110e.jpg

110

IBUKI (OFF):“the UN forces made an attack with an N2 mine.”




09 C111a.jpg

09 C111b.jpg

09 C111c.jpg

09 C111d.jpg

09 C111e.jpg

09 C111f.jpg

111

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“We'll have to re-draw the map again.”

IBUKI (OFF):“They succeeded in burning off 28% of the target's structural substance.”

ASUKA (OFF):“Did they kill it?”

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“This is merely temporary relief. A second attack is a matter of time.”

TEXT:“7th Angel A/B”

TEXT:“7th Angel B 7th Angel A”

TEXT:“Report: Department of Investigation Division 2, Nerv Scientific Investigation Branch”

UrsusArctos: Does 28 percent of Israfel's structural substance mean 28 percent of Israfel's total body mass? If so, they could've simply dropped three more N2 mines and gotten rid of the KO'd Angel themselves, to add insult to injury for Nerv. (One mine or four, it wouldn't make a difference, they already needed to redraw the map anyway.)


Dr. Nick: Since this is a very super-roboty episode, that probably wouldn't work. Genre conventions dictate that a monster of the week must be defeated by the hero robot's finisher attack, so Israfel is likely plot-shielded against anything else. Or, to put it in SRW gameplay terms, the angel has high levels of Potential/Prevail.



09 C112a.jpg

09 C112b.jpg

09 C112c.jpg

09 C112d.jpg

112

KAJI:“At least it bought us time to regroup, so we got something out of it.”

FUYUTSUKI:“Listen up, you two.”




09 C113.jpg

113

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“Do you know what your job is?”

ASUKA:“Piloting Eva.”

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“No!”

Zusuchan: This shot is really great. Shinji and Asuka are directly under a display of their failures on which their shadows are also cast, while Fuyutsuki's shadow looms larger than theirs, showcasing his grander status and authority.


UrsusArctos: Great observation - Fuyutsuki's looming shadow somehow completely escaped my attention here! On the basis of this shot I've added a couple of comments about the use of character positions and shadows to Cuts 105 and 108 as well.



09 C114.jpg

114

FUYUTSUKI:“Your job is to defeat the Angels.”

Mr. Tines: This scene is the only time that Fuyutsuki directly interacts with the pilots.




09 C115a.jpg

09 C115b.jpg

09 C115c.jpg

09 C115d.jpg

09 C115e.jpg

09 C115f.jpg

115

FUYUTSUKI:“Nerv does not exist to make grotesque displays like this. Therefore, you two must cooperate.”

SHINJI & ASUKA:“Why should we?!”

UrsusArctos: There's something hilarious about how they have an Eva-sized lifebuoy around!




09 C116a.jpg

09 C116b.jpg

09 C116c.jpg

116

FUYUTSUKI:“Enough already.”




09 C117a.jpg

09 C117b.jpg

09 C117c.jpg

117

ASUKA:“Why's everyone so touchy here?”

KAJI:“It's because adults don't like to be embarrassed.”

SHINJI:“Where's Miss Misato?”

KAJI:“Cleaning things up. The person in charge”




09 C118a.jpg

09 C118b.jpg

118

KAJI (OFF):“exists to take responsibility.”




09 C119a.jpg

09 C119b.jpg

09 C119c.jpg

09 C119d.jpg

119

RITSUKO:“Here are the internal protests and damage reports, and this is a bill from the UN, and here you have complaints from the PR department as well. Make sure you read them all.”

MISATO:“I don't have to read them to know what they say. "If you're going to fight, do it here," right?”

RITSUKO:“How insightful.”

Mr. Tines: The standard paperwork gag for any time things go pear shaped.




120-122




09 C123a.jpg

09 C123b.jpg

123

MISATO (OFF):“I don't need them to tell me. I'll do it here as soon as the topside gets cleaned up.”




09 C124.jpg

124

MISATO (OFF):“I'll destroy the Angels without fail.”

Zusuchan: Misato, while talking about her mission of destroying the Angels, doing the pose commonly associated with Gendo, a man set on his task with a steadfastness and obsessiveness that come from his feelings towards a long-dead person he loved, with the ultimate motivation still having to do with his own mental issues and unwillingness to progress from them. This might be a coincidence, but it also might not.

Misato's feelings towards her own father are by her own admission a lot more complicated, but there might still be something here nonetheless.




09 C125.jpg

125

RITSUKO:“The Vice Commander is livid. You'll almost certainly be demoted if you embarrass him again.”




09 C126a.jpg

09 C126b.jpg

126

MISATO:“It was a silver lining that Commander Ikari wasn't here.”

RITSUKO:“If he'd been here, you'd have been fired before he ever saw these.”

UrsusArctos: This does make me wonder who they'd bring in to replace Misato if they did fire her. The bridge bunnies seem too low in the command hierarchy and too preoccupied with their own technical stuff. Gendo and Fuyutsuki are often away on their own sinister business, which means that the only two people that she obviously answers to and who are shown to have direct authority over Eva operations can't be trusted to keep an eye on things.




09 C127A.jpg

127A

MISATO:“So, you brought me an idea to help save my job, right?”




09 C127Ba.jpg

09 C127Bb.jpg

09 C127Bc.jpg

127B

RITSUKO:“Just one.”




09 C128a.jpg

09 C128b.jpg

09 C128c.jpg

128

MISATO:“You're amazing, Dr. Ritsuko Akagi.”




09 C129a.jpg

09 C129b.jpg

09 C129c.jpg

129

MISATO:“It's good to have kind friends from way back.”

RITSUKO:“Unfortunately, I'm not the one who will be bailing out my old friend.”




09 C130a.jpg

09 C130b.jpg

130

RITSUKO:“This is Kaji's idea.”

TEXT:“To my honey”

UrsusArctos: It really does say "My Honey" in Katakana there.




09 C131a.jpg

09 C131b.jpg

09 C131c.jpg

131

MISATO:“Kaji's?”

UrsusArctos: Interesting how swiftly Misato's facial expression transitions from one of disgust to something like tenderness.




09 C132a.jpg

09 C132b.jpg

132

Zusuchan: Ritsuko easily notices how despite her initial "ugh-really" reaction, Misato actually is glad he's helping her.
