12 C103b.jpg

12 C103c.jpg

103

UrsusArctos: Here we have the Spear of Longinus, carried under wraps on a Midway-class aircraft carrier. That thing sure is loooong in this cut.




12 C104a.jpg

12 C104b.jpg

104

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“The South Pole, a world of death which permits no life to exist.”




12 C105.jpg

105

FUYUTSUKI:“Or should I simply call it Hell?”




12 C106.jpg

106

IKARI:“Nevertheless, we, mankind, are here. We're living things, and we're alive.”




12 C107.jpg

107

FUYUTSUKI:“That's because we're under the protection of science.”

IKARI:“Science is the power of man.”




12 C108.jpg

108

FUYUTSUKI:“That arrogance is what caused the tragedy of fifteen years ago, the Second Impact.”




12 C109a.jpg

12 C109b.jpg

12 C109c.jpg

12 C109d.jpg

109

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“And here is the end result. This is a greater punishment than we deserve. This is truly the Dead Sea.”

UrsusArctos: Largely recycled from Episode 08 Cut 119 with the same ship types.




12 C110a.jpg

12 C110b.jpg

110

IKARI:“Yet this is a world that has been purified, purged of the original sin.”

FUYUTSUKI:“I'd prefer a world where people live, no matter how stained with sin.”

MAN (OFF):“Reporting. Telegram received from Nerv Headquarters. An Angel has been detected in orbit above the Indian Ocean.”

Mr. Tines: This particular notion of Purgation seems to be hinting at the Impact making some kind of reset to zero; but the broader use of such wonky theology is not confined to Evangelion (e.g. Symphogear AXZ)


UrsusArctos: Episode 21 makes the reset to zero clearer in more scientific terms with effects like the elimination of all life down to the microbial level, and a change in atmosphere confined to Antarctica alone. Speaking of Antarctica, it seems like Sahaquiel matured somewhere in the vicinity. They've detected it over the Indian Ocean, and a more or less straight path to Tokyo-3 would place its point of origin somewhere near Antarctica (there's no way an embryo for an Angel that size could remain in orbit so long undetected).



12 C111a.jpg

12 C111b.jpg

12 C111c.jpg

111

HYUGA:“It appeared suddenly, two minutes ago.”




12 C112a.jpg

12 C112b.jpg

12 C112c.jpg

12 C112d.jpg

112

AOBA:“We have video of the target.”

WOMAN (OFF):“Search Satellite 6 moving to that orbit.”

MAN (OFF):“Two minutes to contact.”

UrsusArctos: It's interesting to hear all the "oohs" and "aahs" as they spy Sahaquiel with their little eyes. Sahaquiel continues the big, creepy eye-motif from Matarael although the big central eye really isn't functional (apart from having the core as the pupil).




12 C113.jpg

113

HYUGA:“That's impressive.”

MISATO:“Now that's just ridiculous.”

UrsusArctos: The two comments neatly encapsulate the reactions to Sahaquiel's design. While the Angel is huge and the big central eye does add an intimidating, alien appearance, its overall design and colors make it look kind of cartoony, even childish. None of which detracts from the Angel's impressive power, as we'll see very shortly.




12 C114a.jpg

114

AOBA:“Closing on target.”




12 C115a.jpg

12 C115b.jpg

12 C115c.jpg

115




12 C116a.jpg

12 C116b.jpg

116

WOMAN (OFF):“Start search.”

MAN (OFF):“Data transmission commencing.”




12 C117Aa.jpg

12 C117Ab.jpg

12 C117Ac.jpg

12 C117Ad.jpg

117A

WOMAN (OFF):“Reception confirmed. Commencing analysis.”

UrsusArctos: This marks the first - but not the last - use of an offensive A.T. Field in the series. Sahaquiel is probably the largest Angel in terms of physical size, so the satellites it smashed must be correspondingly massive.




12 C117B.jpg

117B

MISATO:“Was that an AT Field?”

RITSUKO:“It's a new way of using it.”




12 C117Ca.jpg

12 C117Cb.jpg

12 C117Cc.jpg

117C




12 C118a.jpg

12 C118b.jpg

12 C118c.jpg

12 C118d.jpg

118

MISATO (OFF):“What incredibly destructive power.”




12 C119.jpg

119

MISATO:“That's an AT Field!”




12 C120.jpg

120

IBUKI:“It's using kinetic energy too. It's like this Angel is a bomb in and of itself.”

RITSUKO:“In any case, the first blast was way off and hit the Pacific.”




12 C121a.jpg

12 C121b.jpg

12 C121c.jpg

12 C121d.jpg

121

RITSUKO (OFF):“And two hours later, the second shot struck there. Since then, it has been steadily adjusting for error.”

UrsusArctos: If Sahaquiel had decided to soften up Tokyo-3 before dropping from space, things could have gotten very unpleasant indeed. As it is, we don't hear about the Angel's orbital bombardment after this.




12 C122.jpg

122

MISATO:“That means it's learning.”




12 C123a.jpg

12 C123b.jpg

123

HYUGA (OFF):“N2 aerial mines had no effect on it either.”

TEXT:“Photo: Search Satellite 7 Maximum Magnification”

UrsusArctos: Prior to this, N2 weapons did something useful. But where Sachiel was forced to slow and regenerate and Israfel was KO'd for days, this new Angel is utterly immune. They've gone well past the reach of anything conventional, and stay that way.




12 C124.jpg

124

AOBA:“The Angel's movements since then are unknown.”

UrsusArctos: Maybe they can't track it by radar, but surely something this humongous would be visible to telescopes (or even the naked eye!), or at least occult the stars as it went overhead?




12 C125.jpg

125

MISATO:“It's probably coming here.”

RITSUKO:“Yes, and next time it'll drop itself.”




12 C126a.jpg

12 C126b.jpg

126

MISATO (OFF):“So, that will give us a third Ashinoko Lake?”

RITSUKO (OFF):“All five Fuji Lakes will be fused into a single body linked to the Pacific, taking Headquarters with it.”




12 C127a.jpg

12 C127b.jpg

127

MISATO:“What about Commander Ikari?”

AOBA:“We're unable to contact him due to the Angel's powerful jamming.”




12 C128a.jpg

12 C128b.jpg

128

MISATO:“What is the Magi's judgment?”




12 C129a.jpg

12 C129b.jpg

129

IBUKI:“They unanimously agree in recommending evacuation.”

RITSUKO:“What will you do?”




12 C130a.jpg

12 C130b.jpg

130

RITSUKO:“You're the one who's in charge now.”

MISATO:“Notify all of the Japanese government ministries. Under special declaration D-17, provided for under Nerv's authority,”




12 C131.jpg

131

MISATO (OFF):“all residents within radius of 50km are to evacuate immediately. Ask Matsushiro to back up the Magi.”

HYUGA:“We're abandoning this location?”

MISATO:“No,”




12 C132.jpg

132

MISATO:“but it's not necessary to place everyone at risk.”




12 C133a.jpg

12 C133b.jpg

12 C133c.jpg

133

ANNOUNCEMENT:“A D-17 Special Declaration has been made by the government.”

Mr. Tines: Is 17 the magic number here? (cf. A-17 in Episode 10 Cut 148.)


UrsusArctos: 17 in Evangelion seems to be the equivalent of 47 in Star Trek. Not counting the 17 Angels, I'm pretty sure that number turns up in at least two other instances in the show.



12 C134.jpg

134

TEXT:“All Lanes Outgoing”

ANNOUNCEMENT:“All residents must evacuate to their designated locations.”




135-137




12 C138a.jpg

12 C138b.jpg

138

ANNOUNCEMENT:“Beginning with the 6th and 7th blocks,”




12 C139a.jpg

12 C139b.jpg

139

ANNOUNCEMENT:“move according to your district chief's direction immediately.”




12 C140a.jpg

12 C140b.jpg

140

ANNOUNCEMENT:“The evacuation of the city is complete.”




12 C141a.jpg

12 C141b.jpg

141

ANNOUNCEMENT:“In accordance with Department Alert C,”




12 C142a.jpg

12 C142b.jpg

142

ANNOUNCEMENT:“the evacuation of noncombatants and D class personnel has been completed.”




12 C143.jpg

143




12 C144.jpg

144

RITSUKO (OFF):“You're going to do this? Seriously?”

MISATO (OFF):“Yes, I am.”




12 C145.jpg

145

RITSUKO:“You're going to throw away all three Evas with your selfish decision? The chance of success is only 0.00001%! That's not even one in ten thousand!”

UrsusArctos: You should say "That's one in ten million."




12 C146a.jpg

12 C146b.jpg

146

MISATO:“It's not zero. I'm just banking on the Evas.”

UrsusArctos: Simon from Gurren Lagann would approve!




12 C147a.jpg

12 C147b.jpg

147

RITSUKO:“Major Katsuragi!”




12 C148.jpg

148

MISATO:“I am currently in charge.”




12 C149a.jpg

12 C149b.jpg

149




12 C150a.jpg

12 C150b.jpg

150

MISATO:“I want to do whatever I can. Destroying Angels is my duty.”

RITSUKO:“Your duty? Don't make me laugh.”




12 C151.jpg

151

RITSUKO:“This is for your own sake, isn't it? Your revenge against the Angels!”

UrsusArctos: Ritsuko may have Misato's motivations down pat, but it does raise the question of what other options Nerv has against an Angel that could blow up everything in a 50 kilometer radius!
