UrsusArctos: Does car insurance in Tokyo-3 cover "being swallowed by living shadow"?

dzzthink: This angel is characteristically striped like a zebra, and noticeably more black than white, casting an ominous shadow across the sun-lit Tokyo-3 city. This coloring seems to refer to the psychology concept for "splitting" or "black and white thinking", which is also referenced in the second title of the episode "splitting of the breast". This is a central theme of the episode as Shinji's seeming confidence at the start of the episode, and acknowledgment of his positive qualities, are quite literally enveloped by the negative experiences in his life as he is analyzed by Leliel.


UrsusArctos: As we'll discover later, the striped sphere is actually the Angel's shadow, with the Angel's actual body being the shadow on the ground. Your explanation for the choice of the black and white coloration is fantastic, and fits the theme of the episode perfectly. It also marks how Episode 16 is a sort of transition from the lighter side of Evangelion (everything from Episode 08 to this episode) to the dark final third of the show where all the characters negative experiences come out. As an aside, the Nadia fan site thesecretofbluewater.com had a memorable but absolutely ridiculous theory linking Leliel's Zebra-like appearance with the absence of Zebras in Nadia.

RITSUKO:“You're late.”

MISATO (OFF):“and, if possible, lure it into the airspace”

UrsusArctos: As mentioned on the Evangelion Ranged Weapons page, Rei's sniper rifle is modeled after the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Magnum rifle.

ASUKA:“Well, this is a job for the high-scoring, utterly fearless, Number One synch-rate holder, right?”




16 C072a.jpg

16 C072b.jpg

072

ASUKA (OFF):“Or don't you feel up to it, Shin?”




16 C073.jpg

073

SHINJI (OFF):“I can do it! I'll show you how it's done, Asuka.”

ASUKA (OFF):“What was that?!”

MISATO:“Hey, you two...”

SHINJI:“You said it, didn't you? "You are Number One!"”

MISATO:“Well, that was...”

SHINJI:“Combat is a man's job!”

UrsusArctos: Wait till you see who's doing the real combat for you, kiddo...

16 C078c.jpg

078

ASUKA (OFF):“Talk about out of date! Unit 02 will back him up.”

REI (OFF):“Unit 00 will back him up as well.”

MISATO:“Damn kids, running with it...”

RITSUKO:“Shinji's gotten to be quite admirable, hasn't he?”

MISATO:“No, I'm going to have to chew him out when he gets back.”

UrsusArctos: "Out of date" is right, although Asuka herself is not above using gender stereotypes to mock Shinji. Not to mention that Misato is guilty of giving Shinji rather mixed signals when it comes to gender - her "Bear with it! You're a boy, aren't you?" in Episode 01 comes to mind in particular.


Mr. Tines: Except in the end, discipline be damned.

RITSUKO:“You'll make a good guardian.”
