21 C323.jpg

323

TEXT:“Same Year, Antarctica”




071




21 C072.jpg

072

A ship advances through a red sea. Pillars of salt stretch up towards a darkened sky.




21 C073a.jpg

21 C073b.jpg

073

A strangely-shaped aurora.

FUYUTSUKI:“To think this was once a continent of ice...”




21 C074a.jpg

21 C074b.jpg

21 C074c.jpg

074

Fuyutsuki gazes outside, dumbfounded, through the center of the glass window.

FUYUTSUKI:“There's no trace of it left.”

IKARI (OFF):“Professor Fuyutsuki...”

Fuyutsuki turns toward the voice.




21 C075.jpg

075

Gendo, with Fuyutsuki in front.
The former has the same intrepid smile as always.

FUYUTSUKI:“You? I'm surprised you survived.”




21 C076a.jpg

21 C076b.jpg

21 C076c.jpg

076

Fuyutsuki and Gendo looking through the glass.

FUYUTSUKI:“I'd heard that you were a member of the Katsuragi Research Team.”

IKARI:“Luckily, I had returned to Japan the day before the incident, so I was able to escape the tragedy.”

Fuyutsuki faces forward when he speaks.

FUYUTSUKI:“I see. Rokubungi, you...”

IKARI:“Excuse me, I have a different name now.”

Mr. Tines: Coincidence or enemy action? Gendo has no comment.


UrsusArctos: I should say enemy action. There's no reason Keel would want his chief propagandist and coverup expert to go down with those bungling scientists.



21 C077a.jpg

21 C077b.jpg

21 C077c.jpg

077

Gendo searches his pocket and produces a postcard.




21 C078a.jpg

21 C078b.jpg

21 C078c.jpg

078

Fuyutsuki, smiling bitterly as he puts out his hand and looks at the postcard.

FUYUTSUKI:“A postcard? Not a business card?”




21 C079.jpg

079

TEXT:“We're Married Gendo & Yui Ikari It has been a long time. Are you doing well?”




21 C080a.jpg

21 C080b.jpg

21 C080c.jpg

080

Fuyutsuki is miffed. He looks at Gendo.

FUYUTSUKI:“Ikari? Gendo Ikari...”




21 C081.jpg

081

Gendo in profile, sneering with that devil-may-care look.

IKARI:“My wife has been nagging me to get this to you, Professor Fuyutsuki. She seems to be a fan of yours.”




21 C082.jpg

082

Fuyutsuki replies sullenly.

FUYUTSUKI:“I'm honored.”




21 C083.jpg

083

The handwritten text on the postcard.

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“How is Yui doing? Isn't she participating in this expedition?”




21 C084a.jpg

21 C084b.jpg

084

Gendo looking at Fuyutsuki as if scowling. He puts on rather a suspect grin.

IKARI:“Yui wanted to come, but we have a child now, so...”




21 C085a.jpg

21 C085b.jpg

21 C085c.jpg

085

Wave crests crash violently.




21 C086a.jpg

21 C086b.jpg

21 C086c.jpg

21 C086d.jpg

086

Fuyutsuki goes up the stairs. Gendo follows.

FUYUTSUKI:“Your organization... Seele, was it? I've heard nothing but bad things about it. I can't approve of forcibly pinning down the board of directors.”

Fuyutsuki reaches the top and turns around. Gendo stops.

TEXT:“Safety First”




21 C087.jpg

087

Despite being the one looked down upon, Gendo's face is calm and composed.

IKARI:“You're fastidious as ever. No clean organization can survive in this day and age anymore.”




21 C088.jpg

088

Conversely, Fuyutsuki is the one looking down, but…

FUYUTSUKI:“The official investigation of the Second Impact...”




21 C089.jpg

089

Gendo in front, with Fuyutsuki's legs blocking his way.

FUYUTSUKI:“If the investigation team consisted only of Seele people, you would run into all sorts of issues later.”




21 C090.jpg

090

The opposite, Gendo with Fuyutsuki's legs in front.

FUYUTSUKI:“We're just a makeshift solution to avoid that, aren't we?”




21 C091.jpg

091

Fuyutsuki glares down fiercely, wanting to say, "It can't be!?"




21 C092.jpg

092

Gendo remains silent.




093




21 C094.jpg

094

TEXT:“Year 2015”




21 C095.jpg

095

Misato sitting, hugging both knees.

TEXT:“Nerv Headquarters - Isolation Facility 4”




21 C096.jpg

096

MISATO (MONO):“I still don't handle dark places very well. All the bad memories come flooding back.”

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“Who is she?”




21 C097.jpg

097

A perfectly white room.
Misato (15 years old) is all alone.

MAN (OFF):“She's the sole survivor of the original expedition.”

UrsusArctos: Ironically, this is a bright place, but the lighting puts the contrast between adult Misato and her teenage self in full display.


Mbryo: Raises questions about how Misato survived and was rescued. Adam's explosion supposedly equaled billions of tons of TNT in explosive power(https://wiki.evageeks.org/Second_Impact), enough to level a whole continent, not to mention the LCL-ifying Anti AT Field. So how did Misato survive all that by floating off in an escape pod? And who saved her in the midst of all the chaos?



21 C098.jpg

098

TEXT:“Year 2002”




21 C099a.jpg

21 C099b.jpg

099

On a chair and hugging both knees, Misato sits in complete isolation.

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“Katsuragi? She's Dr. Katsuragi's daughter?”

TEXT:“South Pole Investigation Ship - Isolation Facility 2”

MAN (OFF):“Her name is Misato Katsuragi.”

UrsusArctos: The toys make it seem as though Misato has mentally regressed from a teenager to a child. The sterile white barrenness of the room evokes both a hospital and Antarctica itself, and makes it feel almost like a clean version of Rei's room.




21 C100.jpg

100

Fuyutsuki and the man peer in through the tiny window.

FUYUTSUKI:“That's terrible.”

MAN:“Yes, she hasn't spoken for almost two years now.”




21 C101.jpg

101

An expressionless Misato. The frame of the window in front.

MAN (OFF):“It attests to the hell that she witnessed. Her physical injuries have healed, but psychological wounds do not heal so easily.”

UrsusArctos: Misato is literally framed as a helpless prisoner who has no voice in what happens to her. Her highly independent adult self seems to have been constructed in part as a deliberate reaction to this period of her existence.




21 C102a.jpg

21 C102b.jpg

21 C102c.jpg

102

Fuyutsuki leaves, slightly distressed.

FUYUTSUKI:“I suppose so.”

UrsusArctos: Fuyutsuki is described as "slightly distressed", a perfectly normal reaction. But he makes no attempt at contact with Misato, leaving her alone. Even though Misato is acknowledged as human, her visitors seem to have "othered" her because of her sole surivor status and trauma-induced muteness.




21 C103.jpg

103

Fuyutsuki standing at the locale from earlier.

FUYUTSUKI:“We can't conclude our findings for our investigation lightly either.”

TEXT:“Safety First”




21 C324.jpg

324

Infrared lighting.

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“A completely localized change to the atmospheric elements.”




21 C325.jpg

325

Heavily-equipped gear for use outside the ship.

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“The thorough extermination of all life, including microorganisms.”




21 C326.jpg

326

Subterranean scan image of the former continent of Antarctica. (A Geofront is visible.)

FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“The traces of an enormous cavern directly below the blast center.”




21 C327a.jpg

21 C327b.jpg

21 C327c.jpg

21 C327d.jpg

21 C327e.jpg

327

Fuyutsuki, looking at a report dubiously.

FUYUTSUKI:“And this giant of light.”

Insert: A photograph of the Giant of Light attached to the report.
Pull-in on this photo.

FUYUTSUKI:“This incident is full of mysteries.”

He lifts his face.




104-105

Missing numbers due to rearrangement.




21 C106a.jpg

21 C106b.jpg

106

Headline being played up in a current newspaper.

FUYUTSUKI (MONO):“Soon after, the United Nations issued an official statement stating that the Second Impact was caused by a massive meteor.”




21 C107a.jpg

21 C107b.jpg

107

A dark newspaper photograph (dots visible) zoomed in on the countenance of Keel. T . B.

FUYUTSUKI (MONO):“But from where I stood, I could see”




21 C108a.jpg

21 C108b.jpg

108

Likewise, the visage of Gendo. T ・ B.

FUYUTSUKI (MONO):“that the information had been blatantly massaged.”

Editor's Note: The translator re-used the ADV translator's euphemism for "intelligence rigging" (jouhou sousa) and made a note of it.




21 C109a.jpg

21 C109b.jpg

109

Newspaper photo T ・ B.
Is the main figure a high-ranking person in the United Nations? Keel and Ikari are displayed behind him, scarcely visible.

FUYUTSUKI (MONO):“Behind all this was Seele and hints that a man named Kiel was involved. And it made me want to learn the dark truth of that incident.”

UrsusArctos: How considerate of Gendo and Keel to lurk in the background and tip off folks that the information presented a total fabrication! The HIC members in Episode 14 complained that Gendo was a master at manipulating the truth - and this is solid evidence to the audience that they were right on the money.


Mbryo: The entire lower half of Keel's body is revealed to be machinery in EOE, but in this photo, he appears to be a man normal enough to walk around in public. Did his health deteriorate so rapidly that most of his body needed to be replaced?
