19 C001b.jpg

19 C001c.jpg

001
Inside Nerv Headquarters. Unit One is still in the cage gantry scaffold lock.

There is an ominous silence in the air.




19 C002a.jpg

19 C002b.jpg

19 C002c.jpg

19 C004b.jpg

004
Bridge, Ibuki in front of Fuyutsuki.

FUYUTSUKI:“What about the ejection signal?”

IBUKI:“It’s being locked from the plug’s side.”

SEELE-01: It always baffled me how the pilot could lock himself up, block the ejection of the Entry Plug and as seen later on, launch their own Eva. There were some serious authority loopholes in Nerv.

19 C005b.jpg

19 C005c.jpg

005
Hyuga turns, looking toward’s the camera’s view (at Shinji) and speaks.

An exterior view of Nerv Headquarters.

SHINJI (OFF):“There’s enough here to destroy at least half of headquarters.”




19 C011a.jpg

19 C011c.jpg

011
The bridge. Aoba is sitting in a chair in front of a bitter faced Fuyutsuki, and Ibuki on the other side gets up.

AOBA:“The way he is now, he’ll do it.”

IBUKI:“Shinji, listen to our words!”




19 C012a.jpg

19 C012b.jpg

012
Ikari doesn’t move even slightly.

There is a thud on the lever as Shinji’s right hand slams into it.

SE <<Thud>>




19 C016a.jpg

19 C016b.jpg

016
A closeup of the side of Shinji, scowling. He squints his (partially closed) eye and speaks.

SHINJI:“With my hands!”

SEELE-01: I think the manga gets an important point across: Shinji is partially to blame for what happened. He knew the pilot was in and didn't want to hurt him, but he also knows how to extract an Eva's Entry Plug (as seen in chapter 6). He once again let his emotions run wild at a critical moment and now he's running away from the consequences.


UrsusArctos: To me, the manga pushes things too far in driving home that point by killing Toji, which is the something that Shinji shouldn't be able to recover from. Evangelion 2.0's take on it seems to hit the right balance, making the same point explicit by removing the "who's the pilot?" dilemma from the equation. Shinji knows perfectly well that Asuka (Shikinami) is in the entry plug but refuses to take a more aggressive role in rescuing her because of his emotions getting in the way, thus dooming her to the Dummy System's savagery.


Zusuchan: Well, Shinji wasn't really offered a chance to "rescue" either Shikinami or Toji, only to kill them-and he considered that or "do nothing" as the only choices in both instances, it seems. He's always had a problem with thinking of possibilities beyond those he's presented. That said, I think Toji's death was one of the few improvements over the series that Sadamoto's manga managed to introduce-it's suitably tragic and honestly makes a bit more sense too. His survival isn't a flaw as such, but it does come off a bit too much like something that probably wouldn't have been done had there been more creative control for Anno and considering he drops off the map soon after, killing him now honestly wouldn't change much-even if I do appreciate the little moment between him and Hikari afterwards.

018
Ikari is inside the shot above Ibuki, who is in front of him.

IKARI:“Raise the concentration of the LCL’s pressure to its limit.”

Ibuki turns in reaction to Ikari’s words.

IBUKI:“Eh?”

Mr. Tines: One of the very few (only?) times that the entry plug responds to a remote command.




19 C019.jpg

019

19 C021d.jpg

021

026
Looking up at Ritsuko’s breasts, which is front of Misato.

Her left arm is in a cast.

MISATO:“I’m able to work, it shouldn’t be a problem. I couldn’t rest”

Zusuchan: For some reason, I'd forgotten the usage of fanservice of this kind even this late in the game. Not that I necessarily mind, since the horny element is a pretty integral part of NGE, just that it's kind of surprising.




19 C027a.jpg

19 C027b.jpg

027
Misato and Ritsuko stand at the intersection of the road.

They face a fallen telephone and the neck of Unit 3.

MISATO:“(a slight pause) What about Shinji?”

RITSUKO (behind):“They used the emergency laser cutter”




028
Men wearing protection clothes take Shinji out of the cut open entry plug.

RITSUKO (OFF):“to cut into the hatch”




029
Two people stand in front of Unit 3’s neck.

RITSUKO (behind):“and remove him.”

MISATO:“This is bad. Now…”

FEMALE ANNOUNCER:“Make your object the recovery of all large scale living parts. Are you working on the head. And the side? Make that your priority.

MALE ANNOUNCER:“Number 5, 6 converter ring refrigeration, roger.”

FEMALE ANNOUNCER:“Disposing of the crushed vertebrae, roger. Please start working on neutralizing the LCL in the number 3 section at once.”

SEELE-01: All in all, the Eva's head looks better than last chapter suggested.

035
Asuka’s breasts in front of Rei.

REI:“Dream”

ASUKA:“Yes. Don’t you dream? (bleeds into next cut)

Mr. Tines: Not only fan-service, but some budget saving measures here in the framing to cut down on the lip-flap animation needed.




19 C036a.jpg

19 C036b.jpg

19 C036c.jpg

036
Side of Rei. Her sideward glance returns to in front of her.
