   "Neon Genesis Evangelion (Japanese title: Shin-seiki Evangelion)" is
the brand new anime from GAINAX. The first episode of it was
broadcasted in Tokyo Japan on October 4, 1995.
   Anyway get it and see it right now!!!!!!!!!!!


 *In the street. Children's voices are heard from somewhere.

Children: Ha ha ha...

Children: Ahahahaha. Try to hit it!

Children: Eh.

Children: (laugh)

Children: Yeah, I hit it! I hit it!

 *Shigeru buys a drink can at a vending machine.
*"Coin Cleaning - Open 24 hours"

 *Maya and Ritsuko are in the shop.

Cleaning Machine: Thank you very much. Thank you very much.

Ritsuko: Cleaning doesn't come cheap...

Maya:   I'd at least like some time to do some washing myself, don't you

Shigeru: We're better off because at least we can do this back home.

 *A subway ticket gate

 *A train is coming to the station

 *Kozo reads a newspaper

 *Ritsuko, Shigeru and Maya

Ritsuko: The Sub-Commander.

Ritsuko: Good morning.

Shigeru & Maya: Good morning, sir.

Kozo:   Well. Morning.

Ritsuko: You're so early today.

Kozo:   I'm headed to the upper town for Ikari.

Ritsuko: I see. The committee's regular meeting is today, I suppose.

Kozo:   A silly business. Ikari is always forcing his trivial duties on
        me and I wouldn't know how to do them without Magi.

Ritsuko: An election for the city council will soon be taking place in the
        upper town.

Kozo:   The city council is pure decoration. In actual fact, it's the Magi
        who are in charge of this city.

Maya:   Magi? You mean the three super computers?

Kozo:   It's run by the majority rule of three types of computers.
        The system is exactly based on the democratic fundamentals.

Maya:   Does the council follow Magi's decisions exclusively?

Kozo:   It's an effective government that can minimize wastes.

Maya:   As the purely scientific city it is. This is an era when the science
        is omnipotent.

Shigeru: Old-fashioned words.

Kozo:   Come to think of it, you have an experiment set for Unit One,
        don't you?

Ritsuko: Yes. The second experiment for extending its activation time is
        to take place at 10:30 today.

Kozo:   I'm expecting good news.

 *The panel shows "Emergency"

 *Ritsuko at the laboratory for the experiment

Ritsuko: Stop the experiment. Cut the circuits.

 *Eva-00 in the cage

Maya:   Switching the circuits.

Male Staff: Power supply is getting operating.

Ritsuko: As I thought, that is a problem.

Maya:   Yes. I'm worryied that the converson efficiency is no less than
        0.008 below the theoretical value.

Male Staff: The value is correct up to the largest error in measurement.
        What will we do?

Ritsuko: Lower the interconversion by 0.01 and try it again with the same

Maya:   Roger.

Ritsuko: Well, we're starting the reactivation experiment.

"In the still darkness."

Episode 11

 *Misato in the elevator

 *Ryoji is running to the elevator

Ryoji:  Hey! Just a moment!

 *Misato push the button to close the door

Ryoji:  Ouch!

Misato: Shit!

 *Misato and Ryoji in the elevator

Ryoji:  Yeah. I was running and running. Ha. You seem to be in a bad mood

Misato: 'Cause I saw you right after I got here.

 *Shinji at a payphone

Telephone Operator: Yes. Hold on, please.

Gendo:  What?

Shinji: Er... Err... Well, Father...

Gendo: What's the matter? Be quick!

Shinji: Haa...

Shinji: Err, well... Today at the school I was told to inform my parent
        that a career guidance interview will be taking place, but...

Gendo:  I entrusted Katsuragi-kun with such concerns--don't call me
        with foolish news.
        Don't pass phone calls like that on to me.

Shinji: Ah!

 *Elevator suddenly stops

Misato: Well.


Ryoji:  A power failure?

Misato: That's impossible. It can't happen.

Misato: Something's strange. An accident?

Ryoji:  Maybe Akagi screwed up an experiment?

 *In the laboratory

Maya:   The Main power supply is non-operational. The voltage reads zero.

Ritsuko: No. I did nothing.


 *In the elevator

Ryoji:  What do you think?

Misato: The power should be switched to the Standby supply soon.

 *In the control room

Shigeru: No. The Standby circuit isn't operating.

Kozo:   That can't be. How are the operating circuits?

Female staff: 1.2 percent in all. Only 9 circuits from No. 2567.

Kozo:   Use all operational power supplies to maintain Magi and Central

Shigeru: But that will interfere with life-support in the entire building.

Kozo:   That's fine. This is a top priority issue.

 *Makoto in the town with Misato's laundry

Female Announcement: Remember Takahashi Nozomu, Takahashi Nozomu.
        Thank you for your support.

Makoto: She really is a careless person. I think that Katsuragi-san
        ought to take her own laundry herself. What?

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka on the street

Asuka: That's only 'cause Commander Ikari was just too busy.

Shinji: I was wondering about that. I think that there was a failure
        rather than him just hanging up on me.

Asuka:  As a man, you shouldn't worry over every little detail, don't you

 *At the entrance of Nerv Headquarters

 *The gate doesn't work

Shinji: What?

Asuka:  Wha'cha doin'? Hey, take my place. Hmm. Ah? Hmm, hmm, hmm...
        Damn it! It's gotta be broken!

 *Male staff tries to open the door by force

Staff:  Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho.

 *Ritsuko and Maya go through the open door

 *Ritsuko and Maya walks on the passsage.

Ritsuko: Anyway, let's hurry to the control center. I can't believe
        that the power supply has not yet been restored.

 *In the elevator Misato repeatedly pushes a button

Misato: It's an emergency.

Ryoji:  What's the power supply system like?

Misato: Main, Sub, and Standby. Three systems. I can't believe that all
        systems failed simultaneously.

Ryoji:  That means...

 *Gendo's face in the control room

Gendo:  We have to believe that the breakers were activated by someone
        rather than them working correctly.

Kozo:   No matter what caused it, we'll be in serious trouble if an
        Angel appears at a time like this.

 *Fuchu Overall Headquarters of UN Force

 *General Watch & Control Room

Male Operator: An unidentified object has been detected by the search

Commander C: It may be the eighth Angel.

Commander A: Yes. It has to be Angel.

Commander C: What shall we do?

Commander B:

Commander A: Anyway, its destination is Tokyo-3.

Commander C: I agree. There's nothing we can do.

 *Angel is coming in a lake

 *In the Fuchu UN Headquarters

Male Operator: The Angel has landed.

Female Operator: It's still approaching.

Commander C: Status of Tokyo-3?

Female Operator: It has remained silent.

Commander A: What on Earth are the Nerv personnel doing?

 *Ritsuko and Maya climb up the wall

Ritsuko: I thought that a trap was simply an old-fashioned ornament. I
        never imagined that I would use one.

Maya:   Providing is preventing.

 *Asuka, Shinji and Rei try to push buttons to open the doors

Asuka:  Hmm... This doesn't work, either.

Rei:    No facilities work. Strange.

Asuka:  Has something happened in the Geo-front?

Rei:    It's logical to think so.

Shinji: Anyway, let's try to contact Nerv Headquarters.

 *In the elevator

Misato: Huh. No. Even the emergency phone doesn't work.

 *In the control room

Shigeru: No. Line 77 isn't operating, either.

 *Rei and Asuka try to call

Rei:    No. I can't connect.

Asuka:  Me, neither. Neither the wire one nor the emergency line are out
   of service.

Shinji: Well. What shall we do?

Asuka:  Ah. Nn, nn...

Shinji: What are you doing?

Asuka:  Are you stupid? An emergency manual.

Rei:    Anyway let's go to Nerv Headquarters.

Asuka:  Good idea. Well, let's elect a leader for our group before we
        do anything else.

Shinji: Ah...

Asuka:  Naturally, I must be the leader. You have no objections, do you?
        Let's go!

Rei:    We can get to Geo-front through Route-07 over there.

Asuka:  Ah!

 *Door R-07

Shinji: But the doors don't work. Ah, a manual door.

Asuka:  Hey, Shinji, it's your turn.

Shinji: (Nn,nnnn) You only rely on me in situations like this...

 *At the Fuchu UN Headquarters

Commander A: Shit, the Joint Staff Council--they only rely on us at the
        front line in situations like this.

Commander B: What's the government saying?

Commander A: Huh. The people in Tokyo-2? I heard they're preparing to

 *Angel is coming in the mountain

Female Operator: The Angel is still coming here.

 *At the Fuchu UN Headquarters

Commander B: Anyway contact the people of Nerv.

Commander C: But how?

Commander A: Go yourself.

 *A plane is flying

Announcement from an airplane: This is the Third District Japan Air
        Self-Defense Force. An unidentified object is now approaching
        this location.

Announcement from the airplane: Residents, please go to your designated
   shelters as soon as possible.

 *Makoto on the moving pavement (which isn't currently moving)

Makoto: Big trouble! I must inform Headquarters. But how?

 *A car is coming

Announcement from a car: Remember Takahashi, Takahashi Nozomu, who
        isn't perturbed even in such an emergency.

Makoto: Ah, I'm lucky!

 *In the elevator

Misato: It's rather hot.

Ryoji:  The air conditioners don't work.

Ryoji:  If you don't the heat, you could take off your shirt...

Misato: Eh? (Nnn)

Ryoji:  There's no need to be shy now.

 *Misato continues to wear her jacket

Misato: Don't think improper things, even in a situation like this.

Ryoji:  Fine, fine.

 *Ritsuko and Maya use fans in the control room

Ritsuko: Things are getting worse. And the air is getting staler. These
        facilities should be the best fruits of modern science.

Maya:   Those are like Commander and Vice-Commander. They're probably
        bothered by this heat.

 *Gendo puts his legs into a bucket of water

Kozo:   It's lukewarm.

Gendo:  I agree.



The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still

 *A car is driving

Announcer: Due to the state of special emergency in this district, an
        emergency vehicle is going... Hey, this is a dead end, you know.

Makoto: That's fine. Drive into there!

Announcer: Eh, my!

Makoto: Anyway, this is an emergency.

Driver: Roger.

Help! Stop it!


Kozo:   This Geo-front was designed to be a self-sufficient colony if it's
        ever isolated from the outside. Theoretically this cannot happen
        to all the power supplies.

Ritsuko: That means that someone did it intentionally.

Gendo:  I would guess that their purpose is to research this place.

 *In the control room

Ritsuko: You mean that they want to guess the structures of Headquarters
        from the recovery procedures.

Kozo:   That's damn annoying.

Ritsuko: I'll run dummy programs on Magi to make it difficult for them to
         understand the whole.

Gendo:  I'll leave it up to you.

Ritsuko: Yes.

Kozo:   That the first damage to Headquarters should be caused by people
        no less human than we are. I cannot bear the thought.

Gendo:  In the end, humanity is its own enemy.

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka walk in the dark

Shinji: It usually takes only two minutes to get there. Are you sure that
        this is a passage?

Asuka:  If we get there, I'm sure we'll be able to enter the Geo-front.

Shinji: I've heard the same words for some time already.

Asuka:  You do care too much about details! You're so hung up on minor

Rei:    Be quiet.

Asuka:  What a good girl...

Rei:    A voice.

Makoto: An Angel is coming, repeat...

 *A light is coming

Shinji & Asuka: It's Hyuga-san. Hey!

Shinji: Hey!

Makoto: An Angel is coming, repeat, an Angel is coming now!

Shinji&Asuka: An Angel is coming!

Rei:    We can't waste time. We should take a shortcut.

Asuka:  I'm the leader--don't take the initiative without my permission!

 *Asuka, Shinji and Rei crawl through a duct

Asuka:  Damn it! This might be a shortcut, but we're getting filthy.

Shinji: Listen, what do you think Angels are?

Asuka:  What're you babbling about at a time like this?

Shinji: Angels, messengers of the God. Our enemies with Angel names.
        Why are we fighting against them?

Asuka:  Are you an idiot? Unidentified things are invading us, you know.
        It's natural that we'd have to deal with a lot of difficulties
        falling unexpectedly on our heads.

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka stands in front of two branches

Asuka:  Well... to the right.

Rei:    I think it's to the left.

Asuka:  Don't bother me! What do you think, Shinji?

Shinji: Hmmm, I don't know.

Asuka:  Hey, come on! Since I'm the leader, you'd better just follow me.

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka go through the passage

Shinji: Something seems to be strange, just as I expected. The road
        leads up.

Asuka:  Whaddya mean 'as I expected'? You always talk too much!
        Ah! Look! This time I'm certain.

 *Asuka open a door with her kick and meets the Angel

Asuka: (Deaa! Ii! Uh! Hii! Nnnn. Huh.) We just saw the Angel with our
       naked eyes. I'd say we gotta hurry up, don't y'think?

 * A car is rushing into the control room

Staff:  (Uwaa!)

Makoto: Angel is coming now. I suggest that Eva be readied for a launch.

Maya:   This is serious.

Gendo:  Fuyutsuki, I'm leaving everything to you.

Kozo:   Ikari.

Gendo:  I'm going to the cage to prepare the Evas for a sortie.

Kozo:   You mean that you'll operate them manually?

Gendo:  We have a diesel one for an emergency.

Kozo:   But we have no pilots.

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka

Shinji: Again.

Rei:    Over here.

Shinji & Asuka: Eh?

Asuka:  (Nn?)

Shinji: Ah!

Asuka:  You're the favorite with Commander Ikari, aren't you? The good girl
        is loved differently than us.

Shinji: Don't argue now.

Asuka:  You're always such a smug-looking girl.

Asuka:  (Kuu)

Asuka:  Hey, just 'cause you're favored doesn't mean you can make a fool
        of me.

Rei:    I'm not making a fool of you. I'm not favored--I know that well.

 *The staff pulls the entry plugs from Evas with ropes at the cage

Staff:  Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho....

Staff:  Roger. Termination signal plugs have been removed.

Gendo:  Okay. Prepare to insert entry plugs into all three Evas.

Staff:  But we have no pilots.

Ritsuko: Don't worry. I'm sure they will come.

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka

Shinji: I can't open this door by hand.

Rei:    That can't be helped. Let's break out of the duct and move ahead
        past it.

Asuka:  I shouldn't fight with First. She's the type of person who
        stops at nothing to achieve her aims. She's what is called

 *Gendo and the staff pull ropes

Staff:  Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho....

 *Ritsuko and Maya

Maya:   We're ready to insert the plug.

Ritsuko: We only have to wait for them.

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka crawl through a duct

Asuka:  Don't look forward for any reason. If you look, I'll kill you.

Shinji: Eh?

Asuka:  Idiot!

Shinji: Uh!

Asuka:  Jerk! Stupid!

Shinji: Uh!

 *Ritsuko and Maya in the cage

Asuka:  I told you not to look.

Shinji: I can do nothing but look. If I can't see forward, I can't

 *Shinji and Asuka fall from the duct. Rei jumps down to stand on the floor.

Shinji & Asuka: (Wa, Uwaa!)

Shinji: Uh!

Asuka:  Ouch!

Shinji: Damn it!

Asuka:  Ah!

Shinji: Oh!

Ritsuko: It's you guys.

 *Gendo at the cage

Gendo:  Be ready for each entry!

Staff:  Roger. Open the hatches manually.

 *Shinji approaches Ritsuko

Shinji: The Evas?

Ritsuko: They're ready.

Shinji: How? Even though nothing works?

Ritsuko: By human hand. This idea was from the Commander.

Shinji: Father's.

 *Gendo pulls the rope with the staff to open the door of the entry plug

Staff:  Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho....

Ritsuko: Because you would come here, Commander Ikari has been preparing
        things for you.

Staff: Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho. Yo-heave -ho....

 *Entry plugs are inserted

Maya:   Insert the plugs.

Ritsuko: All are ready for activation with the auxiliary power sources.

 *Gendo, Ritsuko and Maya

Gendo:  Remove the first lock bolt.

 *The staff break pipes with axes

Staff:  (yell)

 *Hydraulic locks are released

Operator: Release hydraulic locks 2 through 32.

Maya:   Pressure zero. Situation free.

 *Gendo and Ritsuko and Maya

Gendo:  All right. Everyone, remove the bindings by force.

 *Evas try to remove the bindings

 *Makoto cry through a speaker

Makoto: The target has halted just above us.

Ritsuko: Hurry the preperations!

Maya:   Emergency batteries have been installed in them.

Ritsuko: Well. They're ready. Launch!

 *Evas crawl throught a duct

Asuka:  I look too disgusting!

Rei:    We're getting to the pit.

 *Eva-02 kicks and opens a door to a pit

 *Evas climb up the pit

Asuka:  Oh, my! I look so ugly again. (Ha!)

Rei:    Watch it! Dodge!

Asuka:  What? Oh! No! Uh!

 *Evas fall down

 *Evas stop falling down

 *Angel put its solvent liquid through the pit

 *Evas escape to a tunnel

Rei:    The target is trying to directly invade Headquarters using a
        strong solvent liquid.

Shinji: What shall we do?

Asuka:  We'll destroy it, of course!

Shinji: Sure, but how are you gonna do it? I dropped my rifle and the
        batteries on our backs are empty. We'll able to move for no more
        than three minutes.

Asuka:  I have a plan. Defense stays here, neutralizes the AT-field and
        also protects Offense from Angel's solvent liquid. Backup goes
        down, picks up the dropped rifle and gives it to Offense. Offense
        then destroys the target with a burst from the rifle.

Rei:    I see. I'll be Defense.

Asuka:  Sorry, but I'm doing it.

Shinji: But it's so dangerous.

Asuka:  That's the reason. I'll feel funny unless I get even with
        you for the last battle. Shinji is Offense. The good girl is
        Backup. All right?

Rei:    I understand.

Shinji: Uh!

Asuka:  Let's go! (Geehn)

Asuka: (N,n,n)

Shinji: Ayanami! Asuka, clear the way!

Asuka:  I've gotten even with you.

 *In the elevator Misato is on Ryoji's shoulder

Misato: Damn it! Why doesn't it open?! It's an emergency! I've gotta go to
        the toilet before I have an accident! Uh! Hey! I told you not to
        look up!

Ryoji:  Okay, okay!

 *Power is recovered

 *The door opens

Misato: (Ya ra a) Hey! Ahhh!

Ryoji:  Oh. Oops....(Uwaa)

Ritsuko, Maya and Makoto: Huh...

Misato: (N, n, nn

Ryoji:  (N, nn)

Ritsuko: (n, nn)

Maya:   Dirty...

 *Shinji, Rei and Asuka lie on the hill

Shinji: It's ironic that without the artificial electric lights, the stars
        are very beautiful.

Asuka:  But it doesn't feel as if any people live there. Look, I feel easy
        with this.

Rei:    We fear darkness and, to survive, chase it away with flames.

Asuka:  Philosophy!

Shinji: For that reason I wonder if humans are special creatures. And so
        the Angels attack us.

Asuka:  What are you, stupid?! I can't see that they have any reasons


Misato is frustrated by the elimination of Angels, and her past is revealed.
However, an Angel attacking from the stratosphere makes everyone abandon
all hope. Next time: "The worth of a miracle." Watch it all together.

Episode 12: The Worth of a Miracle


Touji:  Thanks for letting us get out of the rain, Shinji.

Kensuke: How's Misato-san?

Shinji: She's probably asleep. She's been working all-night shifts lately.

Touji:  Well, her work is very tiring.

Kensuke: Be quiet, so we don't wake her up...

Kensuke & Touji: Shhh...

Asuka:  Hey, *boys*, what are you doing?

Shinji: Taking cover from the rain.

Asuka:  Hmm, you're staring at me, aren't you? I'm going to change
        clothes--if you peep, I'll kill you.

Touji:  Shut up! you idiot! Who wants to see you change(ing) clothes!

Kensuke : Her self-consciousness is super excessive.

Touji:  Um?

Kensuke: Oh!

Touji:  I--

Kensuke: Hi. We've been here for a while.

Misato: Ah, it's you two. Welcome.

Misato: Welcome home, Shinji.  Don't be late for the harmonics test

Shinji: Okay.

Misato: Asuka, you'll also remember?

Asuka:  Fine.

Kensuke: Oh!

Kensuke: Oh, congratulations on your promotion.

Touji:  Co-- congratulations!

Misato: Thank you very much.

Kensuke: You're welcome!

Misato: Well, I'll be leaving now.

Kensuke & Touji: See you later.

Kensuke: Misato-san's signature--the number of lines increased to two. That
        suggests a promotion from Captain to Major.

Asuka:  Oh, I didn't notice.

Shinji: I wonder when...

Touji:  Really? What a dull boy.

Kensuke: Ohhh! Don't you have any sense of sympathy? It's not exactly easy
        taking care of two high school students at her age.

Touji : It's only us that have the human mind with sympathy.


Maya:   Numbers Zero and Two within contamination zone--that's the limit.

Ritsuko: Number One still has leeway. Try to increase plug depth by 0.3.

Maya:   He's reaching the edge of the contamination zone.

Ritsuko: And he's still reading this? That's great.

Maya:   His harmonics and synchronization ratios are approaching Asuka's.

Ritsuko : It's a natural gift, isn't it?

Operator: He's a kid just born to ride Eva.

Operator: It certainly seems that to ride Eva was the reason the kid was
        born, doesn't it?

Misato: Even though he never wishes to. Maybe he's not glad of it.

Ritsuko: All tests have been completed.

Ritsuko: Shinji-kun, you did well.

Shinji: What do you mean?

Ritsuko: You made eight point of progress. They were great readings.

Asuka:  But his harmonics are still 50 points lower than mine.

Ritsuko: Ah, it's an eight-point gain over ten days. That's wonderful.

Asuka:  It's not wonderful!

Asuka:  So, it was *good*! My, you actually received a word of praise...

Shinji: Umm...

Asuka:  I'm going home first, idiot.

Shinji: Oh.


Shinji: Congratulations on your promotion.

Misato: Thanks.

Misato: But, to tell you the truth, I'm not exactly overjoyed.

Shinji: I can sympathize with that.

Shinji: Being praised back then didn't make me happy, either.

Shinji: Strangely, it only made Asuka angry.

Shinji: Why did she get angry?

Misato: And you care about that?

Shinji: Yeah.

Misato: That's because you're always watching other's faces.


Text:   Congratulations for the promotion!

Text:   Celebration Hall

Text:   Reserved.


Kensuke & Touji & Hikari : Congratulations!

Misato: Thank you. Thank you, Suzuhara-kun.

Touji:  No, no! This is the guy who planned all this.

Kensuke: Yeah, the planning and scheduling was done by Aida Kensuke,
        this Aida Kensuke!

Misato: Thank you, Aida-kun.

Kensuke: You're welcome, though I did nothing worth your gratitude.
        It just came naturally.

Touji:  Anyway, why's the Class Rep here?

Asuka:  I invited her.

Asuka & Hikari: Ne~ (Yeah!)

Misato: Is Rei...?

Asuka:  I did invite her, but she's a difficult girl to be with.

Asuka:  Oh, Kaji-san hasn't arrived yet.

Hikari: He's that cool guy? Kaji-san...?

Asuka:  Yeah, against these potatoe heaps, it's like comparing the moon
        to soft-shelled turtles.

Touji:  What was that?!

Misato: It's still difficult? This kind of situation?

Shinji: I'm not that used to being around many people.

Shinji: Why do we have to make all this fuss?

Shinji: Your promotion suggests that people appreciate you, doesn't it?

Misato: Well, maybe.

Shinji: That's why they're happy... But you don't look happy.

Misato: Oh, it's not that I'm completely unhappy. I *am* slightly pleased.

Misato: However, it's not why I'm here.

Shinji: Then why did you join Nerv?

Misato: Well, I don't really remember why anymore--it's been far too long.

Asuka:  That must be Kaji-san. No doubt! Oh!

Ryouji: I came directly from Headquarters. I met her on the way.

Asuka & Misato: Suspicious...

Ritsuko: Jealous?

Misato: Absolutely not!

Ryouji: Anyway, congratulations, Major Katsuragi!

Ryouji: Seems from now on I'm going to have to be polite to you.

Ryouji: Seems from now on I'm gonna have to address you as a superior...

Misato: What are you talking about? Idiot!

Ryouji: Well, it's unprecedented that both the commander and
        vice-commander are out of Japan.

Ryouji: That's how much they rely on Katsuragi.

Shinji: My father is out of the country?

Ritsuko: Commander Ikari is on the South Pole at the moment.


In Antarctica.

Kouzou: There's no allowance for the existence of living things in this
        world of death called Antarctica.

Kouzou: Maybe we should just call it "Hell".

Gendou: Nevertheless, we human beings are standing here, existing as
        living things.

Kouzou: Because we're protected by the power of science.

Gendou: Science is human power.

Kouzou: It's that arrogance that caused the tragedy 15 years ago, the
        Second Impact. This scene is the result. It's too harsh a
        punishment for us, though, considering the crime. This is just
        like the Dead Sea!

Gendou: And yet this is a purified world, a world lacking the impurity
        of the original sin.

Kouzou: I hope for a world where people can live, no matter how steeped
        in sin.


Operator: Situation report from Nerv headquarters, sir.

Operator: An Angel has been discovered in orbit above the Indian Ocean.


Makoto: The Angel abruptly appeared two minutes ago.

Operator(female): Approaching the orbit of the sixth reconnaissance satellite.

Operator(male): Two minutes until contact.

Shigeru: Target in sight.

Shigeru: Ohh...

Makoto: I can't believe my eyes... it's crazy!

Shigeru: Sixth satellite moving to near contact with the target.

Shigeru: Contact with target.

Operator(female): Begin scan.

Operator(male): Starting data transmission.


Misato: AT-field?

Ritsuko: A new usage, I think.

Maya:   It even uses the energy gained due to the fall from orbit.
        The Angel itself is akin to a bomb.

Ritsuko: Currently, the first shot impacted the Pacific Ocean, far
        off target.  The second shot hit this point.  After that, it has
        been steadily correcting its errors.

Misato: That means it's learning.

Makoto : N2 bombing does not work.

Shigeru: After that, the Angel went out of range.

Misato: Maybe it's coming.

Ritsuko: Perhaps next time it itself will fall.

Misato: That would create a third Lake Asinoko.

Ritsuko: The Five Lakes of Fuji would become one and be linked to the
        Pacific Ocean, destroying Headquarters.

Misato: Commander Ikari's status?

Shigeru: Contact is impossible due to the Angel's intense jamming.

Misato: What does Magi suggest?

Maya:   They unanimously recommend evacuation.

Ritsuko: What do you want to do? You are the only available command officer.

Misato: Connect to the appropriate Japanese ministries--special declaration
        D17 under Nerv's authority. Evacuation of all citizens within a
        50 kilometre radius. Request the backup of Magi to Matsushiro.

Makoto: We're abandoning all this?

Misato: No, but it's not necessary to risk all of us.


Announcer(male): Special declaration D17 has been announced by the government.
        All citizens, take shelter in the designated areas immediately.

Announcer(female): The sixth and seventh blocks have priority, immediately
        proceed according to the instructions ordered by the ward's chief.

Announcer(male): All civilians have taken refuge.

Announcer(female): The evacuation of noncombatant and Class D personnel
        signalled by the Alarm C has been completed.


Ritsuko: You're going to do it? You're serious?

Misato: Yes, I am.

Ritsuko: You're going to abandon three Evas on your own selfish accord?
        The probability of winning is only 0.00001 percent. That's smaller
        than one in ten thousand.

Misato: It's not zero. I only bet on Eva.

Ritsuko: Major Katsuragi!

Misato: I am the commanding officer here and I will do everything that I must
        do. My job is to annihilate Angels.

Ritsuko: Your job?! That's a joke! This is for your own sake--it's your
        revenge against the Angels!


Eng. title: "She said, 'Don't make others suffer for your personal hatred.'"

Asuka:  Wooow, catch it by hand?

Misato: Yes! Arrange the Evas at the estimated point of impact, and
        directly catch it with AT-fields at full.

Intercept is the word that would be used (and it even means catch/receive).

Shinji: And if the Angel goes considerably off course?

Misato: Then it's over.

Asuka:  And if the Units cannot withstand the shock?

Misato: Then it's also over.

Shinji: The odds of winning are?

Misato: I have no idea. Only God knows.

Asuka:  If we're successful, it'll be a miracle!

Misato: It's not until we cause a miracle that the miracle is valuable.

Asuka:  In other words, you're saying that we've gotta somehow manage to
        do this.

Misato: Sorry, but there's no other way. This operation is--

Asuka:  You're saying this an official operation? Is it?

Misato: No, I cannot say that. If you're not willing, you can refuse.

Misato: Are you okay with this?

Misato : Officially you are required to write an official note to prepare
     for your death. Do you write that?

Asuka:  No. I ain't gonna die.

Rei:    Neither do I. No need.

Shinji: Neither do I.

Misato: I feel sorry for you. When the operation is over, I'll treat
        you to a steak.

Asuka:  Oh, really?

Misato: I promise.

Shinji: Waai!

Asuka:  Don't forget!

Misato: You can look forward to it.


Shinji: Steak means a delicious dinner!

Asuka:  Does she really think that children these days would be so glad at
        a steak dinner?

Asuka:  How poor the people in the generation of the Second Impact are...

Shinji : No way for them.

Asuka:  Hey! What was with the "waaai!"? I know you were only pretending to be

Shinji: It's better if she can command us without having to worry.

Asuka:  Anyway, she is going to treat us.
        Where should we go?
        You must come!

Rei:    I won't.

Shinji: How come?

Rei:    I don't like meat.


Maya:   Target lost from sensors due to Angel's ECM.

Misato: Although it's now impossible to calculate precisely, this is the
        collision point estimated by Maji from data obtained just before
        we lost the target.

Asuka:  The range is this wide?

Shinji: That's a long distance to the end.

Ritsuko: With its AT-field, the target can annihilate Headquarters
        completely, wherever it impacts within this range.

Misato: Under these conditions, we'll place an Eva unit at each of these
        three points.

Rei:    What is this arrangement based on?

Misato: My intuition.

Asuka & Shinji: Intuition?!

Misato: Sure. Female intuition.

Asuka:  How crude! I feel the miracle getting further and further away.

Shinji : Misato-san never hit the lot.

Asuka:  Ah, nooo...

Shinji: Hey!

Asuka:  What?

Shinji: Asuka, why are you in Eva?

Asuka:  Obviously, it's 'cause I wanna show the world my talent.

Shinji: To show your existence?

Asuka:  Maybe something kinda like that.

*here, she asks "why don't you ask the same question to REI at the moment?"

Asuka:  Aren't you gonna ask Rei that?

Shinji: I've asked Ayanami before.

Asuka:  Hmm, such a *good* friendship...

Shinji: It doesn't mean that.

Asuka:  What about you, Shinji?

Shinji: I've no idea.

Asuka:  No idea? You must be a fool.

Shinji: Maybe.

Asuka:  You really are a fool.

Maya:   120 minutes until the estimated time of collision.


Misato: You take shelter. It'll be enough if I'm here.

Shigeru: No. This is my job as well.

Makoto: I can't leave only the children in danger.

Misato: They'll be fine. No matter how badly the Evas are damaged, the
        AT-field will save them. It's actually safest inside Eva.


Misato: Shinji-kun, you asked yesterday why I joined Nerv.

Misato: My father buried himself in his research... his only dream.

Misato: I couldn't forgive him.  Or, rather, I hated him.

Shinji: Just like my father.

Misato: He never took care of me, my mother or our family. People said
        that he was delicate, but really he was only weak, always trying
        to escape reality, our family. He was just like a little kid.

Misato: Since she had always been unhappy, I agreed with my mother when she
        divorced my father. My father seemed to have been shocked by this,
        and I just grinned at a man who was suffering the consequences of
        his own actions.

Misato: Then he sacrificed his life for mine, dying in the Second Impact,
        and then I couldn't tell if I loved him or hated him.

Misato: The one thing that was clear was that I had to defeat the Angels
        that had caused the Second Impact and, to do that, I joined Nerv.

Misato: It might be that I was trying to avenge my father, so that I can
        be free of his spell.

Shinji: Don't run away! Don't run away! Don't run away!

Shinji: So don't run away...


Shigeru: Telescopes have comfirmed the target at maximum visual range.

Makoto: Distance approximately 25,000.

Misato: The enemy draws nigh! All Eva Units to starting positions!


Misato: The target's calculated trajectory is based solely on visual
        observation. Magi will instruct you until the range is 1000,
        after which you're on your own. I trust you all.

Shigeru: Angel approaching. Distance approximately 20,000.

Misato: Start the operation.


Shinji: Here we go!

Shinji: Start!


Shigeru : Distance 12,000.


Shinji: Field to full power!

Shinji: Uhh.

Rei:    Unit Two, increase Field to full power.

Asuka:  Increasing!

Shinji: Right now!

Auska:  This...!!


Asuka: Huuum.

Shigeru: Wireless system restored--connection requested from Commander
        Ikari in Antarctica.

Misato: Quickly, connect him, please.

Shigeru: Yes, sir.

Misato: I am extremely sorry. Unit One was damaged solely through selfish
        judgements on my part. I take full responsibility for everything.

Kouzou: I don't care. The annihilation of Angels is Eva's mission. It was
        fortunate there was relatively little damage.

Gendou: Yes. You've done it, Major Katsuragi.

Misato: Thank you, sir.

Gendou: By the way, is the pilot of Unit One there?

Shinji: Yes.

Gendou: I've heard the story. You did it, Shinji.

Shinji: Eh? Yes.

Gendou: Then, Major Katsuragi, I shall let you handle the aftermath.

Misato: Yes, sir.


Announce: Next station is Shin-Miyanoshita, Shin-Miyanoshita. Exit on the
        left side at the next station.

Asuka : You've gotta keep your promise.

Misato: All right. I withdrew several large bills so I can still pay for
        the full-course dinner, even though it's a bit before payday.


        Paper lantern of a Chinese noodle stand.


Asuka:  I know what you've got in your wallet. Don't worry.

Asuka:  The honour student said she'd come with us for Chinese noodles.

Rei:    I'd like garlic noodles without ChaShu. (Chinese grilled pork)

Asuka:  Gimme a shark fin and a large order of baked pork.

Proprietor: Here you go--the shark fin with baked pork.

Shinji: Hey, Misato-san.

Misato: What?

Shinji: When I heard my father's words, I found that for the first time I
        was glad to be praised.

Shinji: And I also found that... that I pilot Eva just to hear my father say
        those words.

Asuka:  That's why you're a pilot?

Asuka:  Truly idiotic!
