TEXT:“(S.C. MAGI SYSTEM) Completed”




21 C211.jpg

211

AKAGI:“Magi Casper”




21 C212.jpg

212

AKAGI:“Magi Balthasar”




21 C213.jpg

213

AKAGI:“and Magi Melchior.”




21 C214a.jpg

21 C214b.jpg

214

AKAGI:“The Magi are the three parts that make up who I am. The scientist in me, the mother in me, and the woman in me.”




21 C215a.jpg

21 C215b.jpg

21 C215c.jpg

21 C215d.jpg

215

AKAGI:“And those three elements will be in constant conflict with one another.”

RITSUKO:“The three parts of you... The only thing left is to power it up, right?”




21 C216a.jpg

21 C216b.jpg

216

RITSUKO:“I'm going to go home early today.”




21 C217a.jpg

21 C217b.jpg

217

RITSUKO:“Misato's coming back.”

AKAGI:“That's right, I didn't know she was a member of Gehirn. I believe she's in Germany?”

RITSUKO:“Yes, she's serving in Branch 3.”

AKAGI:“Then I suppose it's a long-distance relationship.”




21 C218.jpg

218

RITSUKO:“I heard they broke up.”




21 C219a.jpg

21 C219b.jpg

219

AKAGI:“Oh, and they looked so good together too.”




21 C220a.jpg

21 C220b.jpg

220

RITSUKO:“You can never tell with a man and a woman, because it's not logical.”




21 C221a.jpg

21 C221b.jpg

21 C221c.jpg

221

AKAGI:“That cool attitude of yours certainly hasn't changed. You're going to let your own happiness slip away.”




21 C222a.jpg

21 C222b.jpg

222

RITSUKO:“Happiness is even harder to define.”




21 C223a.jpg

21 C223b.jpg

21 C223c.jpg

21 C223d.jpg

223

RITSUKO:“Well, it's been a long time since I've gone drinking.”

AKAGI:“Goodnight.”

RITSUKO (OFF):“Goodnight.”

21 C228a.jpg

21 C228b.jpg

228

AKAGI:“Did you want something, Rei?”




21 C229.jpg

229

REI:“I got lost.”




21 C230a.jpg

21 C230b.jpg

21 C230c.jpg

230

AKAGI:“Oh, really? Then you want to leave here with me?”




21 C231.jpg

231

REI:“That's okay.”




21 C232a.jpg

21 C232b.jpg

232

AKAGI:“But you won't be able to get home by yourself, right?”




21 C233.jpg

233

REI:“That's none of your business, you old hag.”




21 C234.jpg

234

AKAGI:“What?”




21 C235.jpg

235

REI:“I can go home by myself, so leave me alone, you old hag.”




21 C236a.jpg

21 C236b.jpg

236

AKAGI:“It's not nice to call someone an old hag.”

REI:“But you are an old hag, aren't you?”




21 C237.jpg

237

AKAGI:“I'm going to get mad. You need a good scolding from Director Ikari.”




21 C238a.jpg

21 C238b.jpg

238

REI:“That's what the Director calls you.”




21 C239a.jpg

21 C239b.jpg

21 C239c.jpg

239

AKAGI:“That...”




21 C240.jpg

240

REI:“He says, "That old hag is pushy," or that he, "doesn't need that old hag anymore."”




21 C241.jpg

21 C242a.jpg

21 C242b.jpg

242

REI:“He says, "That old hag is pushy,"”




21 C243a.jpg

21 C243b.jpg

243

REI:“or that he, "doesn't need that old hag anymore."”




21 C244.jpg

21 C245a.jpg

21 C245b.jpg

245

REI:“He doesn't need that old hag anymore.”




21 C246a.jpg

21 C246b.jpg

21 C247a.jpg

21 C247b.jpg

21 C247c.jpg

247

REI / YUI:“It's what the Director calls you.”




21 C248.jpg

21 C249a.jpg

21 C249b.jpg

21 C250.jpg

21 C251.jpg

251

AKAGI:“You're nothing but a...”




21 C252a.jpg

21 C252b.jpg

21 C252c.jpg

252

AKAGI:“It doesn't matter if you die, you can always be replaced. Rei... The same as me.”

RussianRiz: Ah, the choking. Certainly something significant in the franchise. The rejection of the other. In this case, Rei 1 resembles Yui directly, which is why Naoko attacked her.


UrsusArctos: And what a powerful rejection of the other this is! Along with Shinji choking Asuka in End of Evangelion, we have Eva-01 choking Eva-03 and breaking its neck, and Kyoko breaking the neck of the Asuka doll before hanging herself. The black silhouettes on red evoke violence very powerfully, and are seen again when Asuka finds Kyoko hanging. Naoko's comment is creepily appropriate for Rei - who literally can be replaced if she dies, and her second incarnation uses Naoko's very words - but also for her daughter, Ritsuko, whose own actions land up with her being replaced by Rei. There's a whole cycle of tragedy and irony woven into Naoko's statement here.

21 C254.jpg

254

RussianRiz: That cut hits us hard as much as it did to her.




21 C255a.jpg

21 C255b.jpg

255

UrsusArctos: If Naoko strangling Rei 1 was the woman (Casper) part of her personality rejecting the woman who was not her and who resembled her hated rival, the look of absolute horror on her face - a "My God, what have I done?!?" look if I ever saw one - is the result of the maternal (Melchior) part of her personality reacting in utter horror to her murdering a child. Naoko as a woman rejected another, and now Naoko as a mother rejects herself. The part of her personality that went into the Magi Casper, the part of her that rejects others violently, leaves open the gateway to absolute mayhem in End of Evangelion.

FUYUTSUKI (MONO):“The Human Instrumentality Project Committee, chaired by Kiel Lorenz, dissolved the research organization, Gehirn, the next day.”
