17 C043.jpg

043

HIKARI (OFF):“Stand! Bow!”




17 C044a.jpg

17 C044b.jpg

17 C044c.jpg

17 C044d.jpg

17 C044e.jpg

044

TOJI:“Lunch time! Lunch time! This is the single best thing 'bout school.”

ASUKA (OFF):“What?!”

UrsusArctos: Toji, unsurprisingly, is a dude who loves his food! The jock who loves eating may be a very old cliche, but this moment adds considerably levity to a character who doesn't smile too often.




17 C045a.jpg

17 C045b.jpg

045

ASUKA:“You didn't bring lunch?”

SHINJI:“I didn't have time to cook last night because of homework.”




17 C046a.jpg

17 C046b.jpg

17 C046c.jpg

046

ASUKA:“And so you're telling me to go without lunch?!”




17 C047a.jpg

17 C047b.jpg

047

TOJI:“What's this? Married couple fightin' again?”

UrsusArctos: Enough folks use this quote as an excuse that Shinji and Asuka are or at least should be a romantic couple, but a couple of episodes later it sure ain't so clear-cut, and as we'll see Toji isn't the best observer in the romance department...




17 C048a.jpg

17 C048b.jpg

17 C048c.jpg

17 C048d.jpg

17 C048e.jpg

17 C048f.jpg

048

SHINJI & ASUKA:“It's not like that!”

UrsusArctos: Off-model is hilariously off by the end of this sequence. This is straight out of a romantic comedy, but trying to argue that Shinji and Asuka are unambiguously a couple (as opposed to merely shipping them together as a personal preference) on the basis of this scene is to forget just how broken, violent and dysfunctional their relationship becomes towards the end. More on that when we get to it.




17 C049.jpg

049

MISATO (OFF):“What's all this formality for?”




050




17 C051a.jpg

17 C051b.jpg

051

RITSUKO:“It's the Unit 03 activation test at Matsushiro. We'll be using the fourth as the pilot.”




17 C052a.jpg

17 C052b.jpg

17 C052c.jpg

052

MISATO:“The fourth? The Fourth Child's been found?”




17 C053.jpg

053

RITSUKO:“Just yesterday.”




17 C054a.jpg

17 C054b.jpg

054

MISATO:“But I haven't received a report from the Marduk Institute.”




17 C055.jpg

055

RITSUKO:“The official documents will be delivered tomorrow.”




17 C056a.jpg

17 C056b.jpg

17 C056c.jpg

056




17 C057.jpg

057

MISATO (OFF):“Dr. Akagi, aren't you hiding something from me again?”

RITSUKO (OFF):“Not really.”

UrsusArctos: Ritsuko's hiding more from you than you know at this point, and I don't mean the Marduk Institute being a sham.




17 C058.jpg

17 C058b.jpg

17 C058c.jpg

058

MISATO:“Well, okay. So, who's”




17 C059a.jpg

17 C059b.jpg

17 C059c.jpg

17 C059d.jpg

059

MISATO:“the selected kid?”




17 C060a.jpg

17 C060b.jpg

060

MISATO (OFF):“Of all the people, it's that child?”

RITSUKO (OFF):“It can't be helped. All the candidates were gathered together for protection.”

MISATO (OFF):“It'll be hard to break to them.”

UrsusArctos: Ritsuko's actually telling the truth about the candidates being gathered together for their protection, but it'll take Kaji's revelation to make the situation perfectly clear to Misato.




17 C061a.jpg

17 C061b.jpg

17 C061c.jpg

061

MISATO (OFF):“Asuka will be fine. Her pride's riding on her piloting of the Eva. And Rei is an exception, but nothing good comes of becoming involved with us and the Evas.”




17 C062a.jpg

17 C062b.jpg

062

MISATO (OFF):“Shinji understands that better than anybody. I don't want him to suffer”




17 C063.jpg

063

MISATO (OFF):“any more hardships.”

RITSUKO:“But we need children of this kind,”




17 C064a.jpg

17 C064b.jpg

064

RITSUKO (OFF):“in order for us all to survive.”

MISATO:“Let go of the pure ideals, is that what you're saying?”

UrsusArctos: Given what they intend to do with the Evas once the Angels are destroyed - which Misato wondered about in the previous episode - this is one of the most pernicious half-truths in the series.

17 C067a.jpg

17 C067b.jpg

17 C067c.jpg

067

HIKARI:“Suzuhara, you're on duty this week, so get to it!”

UrsusArctos: The scene cuts to the face of the person who has been chosen as the Fourth Children - and of course this will become obvious to everyone except Shinji.




17 C068a.jpg

17 C068b.jpg

17 C068c.jpg

17 C068d.jpg

068

TOJI What do you mean?

HIKARI:“The printout!”




17 C069a.jpg

17 C069b.jpg

17 C069c.jpg

069

HIKARI:“Didn't our teacher tell you to deliver this?”

TEXT:“Emergency Evacuation Training Enforcement Notice”




17 C070a.jpg

17 C070b.jpg

17 C070c.jpg

17 C070d.jpg

070

TOJI:“C'mon, class rep, you can ask the other person on duty.”

HIKARI:“Miss Ayanami is absent today!”

TOJI:“It's Ayanami and me? Can't be helped then.”




17 C071a.jpg

17 C071b.jpg

17 C071c.jpg

17 C071d.jpg

071

TOJI (OFF):“But I can't exactly go to a girl's place alone.”

HIKARI:“Well, in that case, I'll go along...”

TOJI (OFF):“Shinji!”

UrsusArctos: The transition from scowling class representative to delighted girl happens so quickly that it's a genuine surprise. Hikari is rarely seen smiling in the presence of Asuka, and much less so in the presence of any of the three stooges!


dzzthink: To be honest, it was quite bemusing to find Hikari suddenly liking Toji. It was a sharp contrast to her usual attitude as the strict class representative. Draws an interesting parallel with Misato and Asuka who hide or deny their feelings. Hikari does this too but opens up to Toji by preparing meals for him.



17 C072a.jpg

17 C072b.jpg

17 C072c.jpg

17 C073a.jpg

17 C073b.jpg

17 C073c.jpg

073

TOJI (OFF):“Walk home with me, will ya?”




17 C074a.jpg

17 C074b.jpg

17 C074c.jpg

17 C074d.jpg

17 C074e.jpg

074




17 C075a.jpg

17 C075b.jpg

17 C075c.jpg

075

UrsusArctos: This cut is the culmination of all the cuts before that show how oblivious Toji is to Hikari's feelings.
