SHINJI A (OFF):“Who's there?”

SHINJI A (OFF):“Who's there?”

SHINJI B (OFF):“Shinji Ikari.”

SHINJI A (OFF):“That's me.”

SHINJI B (OFF):“I am you. People have another self within themselves. The self is always composed of two people.”

SHINJI A (OFF):“Two people?”

SHINJI B (OFF):“The self which is actually seen, and the self observing that. There are many entities called Shinji Ikari. The other Shinji Ikari that exists in your mind. The Shinji Ikari in Misato Katsuragi's mind, the Shinji in Asuka Sohryu, the Shinji in Rei Ayanami, and the Shinji in Gendo Ikari. All are different Shinji Ikaris, but each of them is a true Shinji Ikari. You are afraid of those Shinji Ikaris in other people's minds.”

SHINJI A (OFF):“I'm afraid of other people hating me.”

SHINJI B (OFF):“You're afraid of being hurt.”

UrsusArctos: Shinji B - who we will see in the next cut as a little Shinji with a striped shirt - is a manifestation of Leliel. The discussion here prefigures Episode 20, the End of TV and End of Evangelion, and is drawn heavily from Ryu Murakami's Ai to Gensou no Fascism (The Fascism of Love and Fantasy). In the absence of any English translations of the Murakami novel, I've had to make do with an English translation (NOT under CC-BY-SA) of an essay by a Japanese fan here to make the connection.

16 C206.jpg

206

SHINJI A (OFF):“Who is at fault?”

SHINJI B (OFF):“Father is the one who is at fault.”




16 C207.jpg

207

SHINJI B (OFF):“The father who deserted me.”




16 C208Aa.jpg

16 C208Ab.jpg

16 C208Ac.jpg

16 C208Ad.jpg

16 C208Ae.jpg

208A

SHINJI A (OFF):“It's my fault.”




16 C208Ba.jpg

16 C208Bb.jpg

208B

ASUKA:“There you go, always immediately thinking that it's your fault!”

dzzthink: This is the main concept of splitting and is quite bluntly pointed out by Asuka. The unrealistic thinking of the extremes of one's self. Even the banal conversation at the beginning of the episode where Asuka shouts at Shinji becomes something that Shinji feels guilt for. The subsequent montage goes through many of the negative experiences Shinji may have felt bad about.

16 C209b.jpg

16 C209c.jpg

16 C209d.jpg

16 C209e.jpg

16 C209f.jpg

209

ASUKA:“That's why I say you're self-deprecating!”

UrsusArctos: We saw this particular animated sequence earlier in the episode, and it will be employed to great effect in Episode 25.

16 C210b.jpg

16 C210c.jpg

16 C210d.jpg

210

SHINJI (OFF):“I can't do anything.”




16 C211.jpg

211

MISATO:“You just believe that you can't do anything.”

16 C212b.jpg

16 C212d.jpg

16 C213a.jpg

16 C213b.jpg

213

REI:“Don't you have faith in your father?”




16 C214a.jpg

16 C214b.jpg

214

SHINJI (OFF):“I think I hate him, but now I'm not sure.”




16 C215.jpg

215

IKARI (OFF):“Good work, Shinji.”




16 C216a.jpg

16 C216b.jpg

216

SHINJI (OFF):“My father called me by my name.”




16 C217a.jpg

16 C217b.jpg

16 C217c.jpg

16 C217d.jpg

217

SHINJI (OFF):“I was praised by my father!”




16 C218a.jpg

16 C218b.jpg

218

SHINJI B (OFF):“You're going to spend the rest of your life ruminating on that happiness?”

SHINJI A (OFF):“If I believe in those words,”




16 C219.jpg

219

SHINJI A (OFF):“I can keep on living.”




16 C220.jpg

220

SHINJI B (OFF):“As you continue to deceive yourself?”




16 C221a.jpg

16 C221b.jpg

221

SHINJI A (OFF):“Everybody does it! That's how everyone survives.”

SHINJI B (OFF):“Believe that you're fine with the way things are, or you won't be able to keep living.”

SHINJI A (OFF):“There's too much hardship in this world for me to keep living.”

SHINJI B (OFF):“For example, the fact you can't swim?”

SHINJI A (OFF):“Humans aren't made to float!”

SHINJI B (OFF):“That is self-deception.”

SHINJI A (OFF):“I don't care what you call it!”

Mr. Tines: Swimming seems an odd choice of hardship, even if Shinji's lack of the skill has been implied by his deciding to do physics homework rather than doggy-paddling in the shallow end. There's probably a real world tale to be told here.

16 C223.jpg

223

SHINJI B (OFF):“You've shut your eyes and turned a deaf ear to the things you don't like.”




16 C224a.jpg

16 C224b.jpg

16 C224c.jpg

224




16 C225a.jpg

16 C225b.jpg

225

KENSUKE (OFF):“His sister was injured”




16 C226a.jpg

16 C226b.jpg

226

KENSUKE (OFF):“during the incident.”




16 C227.jpg

227




16 C228.jpg

MISATO (OFF):“Who cares what the others say?!”




16 C229.jpg

16 C230a.jpg

16 C230b.jpg

230




16 C231a.jpg

16 C231b.jpg

231

IKARI (OFF):“Leave!”




16 C232a.jpg

16 C232b.jpg

16 C232c.jpg

16 C232d.jpg

16 C232e.jpg

16 C232f.jpg

16 C232g.jpg

232

SHINJI (OFF):“No, I don't want”




16 C233a.jpg

16 C233b.jpg

233

SHINJI:“to hear this!”




16 C234a.jpg

16 C234b.jpg

234

SHINJI B (OFF):“See? You're running away again.”




16 C235.jpg

235




16 C236a.jpg

16 C236b.jpg

236

SHINJI B (OFF):“There's no way you can live by linking just the enjoyable moments like a rosary. Especially not me.”

SHINJI A:“I've found something I enjoy! Finding something you enjoy and doing nothing but that...”

UrsusArctos: Very much the opposite of the Dementor-repelling Expecto Patronum from the Harry Potter series. Unlike J. K. Rowling, Hideaki Anno seems to reject the idea that one can fight off depression by bringing forth one's happiest memories.




16 C237a.jpg

16 C237b.jpg

16 C237c.jpg

16 C237d.jpg

16 C237e.jpg

237

SHINJI A:“What's wrong with that?!”
