Avant Title.

Misato:         Hello, I am away right now. Please leave your message
                after the beep.

Ryouji:        My last job...
                It's red, just like blood.

Episode 21: nerf the berth.
----------------------------------------------

Misato:         Kidnapped? Our vice commander?

Staff:          It was 2 hours ago.
                He has been missing since he entered the eighth district
                in the west.

Misato:         That's inside of this installation.
                You guys in the Division of Intelligence did nothing
                to stop it?

Staff:        An insider was spying on us and lead the operation.
                We were outwitted by that person.

Misato:     Someone who can baffle the Second section of Intelligence
                Division.
                It can't be...

Staff:          Kaji Ryouji, the person who is suspected to be the leader
                of this plot.

Misato:         That's why you came to see me.

Staff:          You can help us a great deal, because you think quickly.
                As your colleagues, we truly regret having to
                suspect the chief of planning.
                However, this is our job.

Misato:         Considering our past, it's the only natural
                reaction.

Staff:          Thank you for your cooperation.
                Take her away.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fuyutsuki:      It's been a long time, Chairman Kihl.
                This is a very crude way of welcoming me.

Kihl:          There is no need for the Commander to be called here.
                 We need to have a long discussion with you, and this was
                  the best way.

Fuyutsuki:      You never change. You don't take my situation into account.

Seele 07:       The problem we are addressing now has emerged already.
                The consequences are inevitable.

Seele 03:       Please understand that.

Fuyutsuki:      Not the committee, but Seele has finally appeared.

Seele 07:       We have no intention of creating a new god.
                We hope for your cooperation, Prof. Fuyutsuki.

Fuyutsuki:      Prof. Fuyutsuki...

----------------------------------------------

        1999 AD. Kyoto

----------------------------------------------
Students:       Professor!  Professor Fuyutsuki!

Fuyutsuki:      Oh, it's you guys.

Students:      How about having a beer by the Kamogawa river?

Fuyutsuki:      again?

Students:       Ryouko and the rest say they'll come if you'll come.

Students:       The professor also says you should come more often.

Fuyutsuki:      Alright. I see.

----------------------------------------------

Professor:      It's not bad to drink outside, given the opportunity.

Fuyutsuki:      Well,

Professor:      You're talented, though it's not good for you
                to underestimate the importance of communication
                between people.

Fuyutsuki:      I am sorry.

Professor:      By the way, there's a student who wrote an interesting report
                on biotechnology.
                A student named Ikari... do you know the name?

Fuyutsuki:      Ikari? No.

Professor:      I told Ikari about you. Ikari said
                "I wish to see him."
                You will be contacted.
                Please see the student.

Fuyutsuki:      The name is Ikari-kun, hmmm...

----------------------------------------------

Fuyutsuki:      I've read this.
                I have two or three questions, although it is quite a
                stimulating report.

Yui:            Thank you so much.

Fuyutsuki:      You are Ikari Yui-kun.

Yui:            Yes.

Fuyutsuki:      What are you going to do from here?
                Are you going to join some commercial company, or join this
                lab?

Yui:            I hadn't considered that.
                And, there may be a third choice.

Fuyutsuki:      hmm?

Yui:            I'm also thinking about joining a home,
                I mean, if I meet a nice person.

-----------------------------------------------
        2015 AD. Again.
----------------------------------------------
02:             Incorporating the S2 engine by itself, it obtained
                the ultimate existence.

04:             Evangelion Unit One.

03              The living God created by us.
                It is blasphemy.

Kihl:           The creation of a God is not allowed.

Some Seele:     I will not allow him to have a God.
                Ikari Gendou, can we trust you?

------------------------------------
Fuyutsuki:      Rokubungi Gendou?
                Well, I have heard the name.

-------------------------
        1999 AD. Again.
-------------------------

Fuyutsuki:      Well, I've never met him, though he generates a lot of rumors.

        Kyoto Prefectural Police Office.

Fuyutsuki:      Eh? I was appointed as his advisor?

Fuyutsuki:      Yes. I will visit him.
                When is a good time?

Rokubungi:      I've heard rumors about you from people.
         I've been wanting to meet you.

Fuyutsuki:      You were drunk and got into a fight. That's so pathetic.

Rokubungi:      Before I said anything, they picked on me for no reason.
                I am not used to be liked. I am used to being hated.

Fuyutsuki:      That is not my concern.

Rokubungi:      Dr. Fuyutsuki, I am sure you are exactly the kind of
                person that I expected.

Fuyutsuki(mono): My first impression was that he was a real bastard.
                In those days, this country still had seasons, it was Autumn.

------------
Fuyutsuki:      Is that true?

Yui             Yes. I'm going with Rokubungi-san.

Fuyutsuki(mono): When I heard that, I couldn't hide my surprise.

Fuyutsuki:      You walk with that guy?

Yui:            Oh, Dr. Fuyutsuki, he is such a cute man,
                it's just that no one knows it.

Fuyutsuki:      Ignorance can be a source of happiness.

Yui:            I introduced you to him. Were you disturbed by that?

Fuyutsuki:      Well, I admit that he is an interesting guy, but
                I don't like him.

Fuyutsuki(mono):However, it was commonly accepted by those who knew, that
                the objective of his approach to her was her talent and
                the support organization behind her.
                That organization was called "Seele," according to the rumors
                I heard afterwards.

-------------------------------
        2000 AD. Antarctica.

Fuyutsuki:      Second Impact--in the last year of the twentieth century,
                that tragedy took place.

        2001 AD.

Fuyutsuki:      In the first year of the twenty first century, there was
                nothing but time. A year that had nothing else to say.

Fuyutsuki:      Was this the land of ice?
                It hardly looks it.

Gendou:         Professor Fuyutsuki.

Fuyutsuki:      Oh, it's you. You survived?

Fuyutsuki:      I hear that you participated in the Katsuragi investigation
                team.

Gendou:         Fortunately, I had returned to Japan the day before that
                incident, and I escaped that tragedy.

Fuyutsuki:      Is that so, Rokubungi-Kun

Gendou:         Excuse me, I changed my surname.

Fuyutsuki:      A post card? Not a business card?

                We have married.
                Ikari and Yui Gendou

                It's been a long time. How are you?

Fuyutsuki:      Ikari, Ikari Gendou.

Gendou:         My wife asked me to give you this.
                She is a fan of yours.

Fuyutsuki:      I am honored.

                Ikari Gendou
                      Yui

                It's been a long time. How are you?

Fuyutsuki:      How is Yui-kun? Isn't she participating in  this expedition?

Gendou:         She wanted to come, but she has a child now.

Fuyutsuki:      Your organization, called Seele or something, is creating a lot
                of bad rumors.
                I don't like the way that it controls the committee by force.

Gendou:         You are still too scrupulous.
                In this age, no honest organization can survive.

Fuyutsuki:      If this official investigation commission were
                arranged only by Seele people, there would be a lot of
                trouble.
                Were we assigned to avoid trouble?

--------------------------------
Misato:         I still hate the darkness.
                It brings memories of nothing but horrible things.
----------------------------------
Fuyutsuki:      Who is she?

Staff:          The only survivor of the investigation commission.

------------------------------------
                2002 AD.

        South Pole observatory ship, Second bulkhead.

Staff:          Her name is Katsuragi Misato.

Fuyutsuki:      Katsuragi? Is she the daughter of Dr. Katsuragi?

Staff:          Yes. She hasn't spoken for two years.

Fuyutsuki:      How terrible.

Staff:          She witnessed that hell.
                Her physical injuries healed, but mental injuries are hard to
                fix.

Fuyutsuki:      That's right.

--------------------------------------

Fuyutsuki:      It's difficult to figure out the results of this investigation.
                This giant of light is a complete mystery.

Fuyutsuki:      Afterwards, The United Nations officially
                declared that Second impact was caused by
                a massive meteoric collision.

Fuyutsuki:      However, for me, that was obviously fabricated information.
                Behind it, there was Seele and the man named Kihl.
                I tried to find out the truth about that incident,

----------------------------------------------
        2003 AD. Hakone.
----------------------------------------------

        The Artificial Evolution Lab. Under the direct control of the United
Nations.

Fuyutsuki:      Even if the name "Ikari Yui" is involved...

Fuyutsuki:      Why do you hide the existence of the giant?
                You already knew that Second Impact was
                going to happen that day, didn't you?

        Chief Ikari Gendou

Fuyutsuki:      You told me that you returned the day before the incident.
                Was it also just good fortune that you returned with all of the
                research results as well?

Gendou:         I didn't expect that these sorts of things would have      
                escaped destruction.

Fuyutsuki:      I investigated your estate in detail.
                I understand you need much money to educate a child.
                But the amount was too great to be possessed by one person.

Gendou:         Oh, the great professor Fuyutsuki, How about moving
                to the Economics faculty?

Fuyutsuki:      I will publish the truth behind Second Impact, you, Seele and
the
                Dead Sea Scrolls.
                I cannot forgive the people who caused that.

Gendou:         As you wish. But before that, I have one thing to show you.

------------------------------------------------------------
Fuyutsuki:      We're getting down very deep.

Gendou:         Are you worried?

Fuyutsuki:      Slightly.

Fuyutsuki:      This is...

Gendou:         It wasn't us.  Someone left this cavity behind,
                although 89% has been buried.

Fuyutsuki:      Then, this was originally a spherical underground space.

Gendou:         That is the installation which is consuming all that humanity
has.

----------------------------

Akagi:          Oh, Dr. Fuyutsuki.

Fuyutsuki:      Akagi-kun, you're here, too...

Akagi:          Yes. This is the best place to investigate the fundamental
theory
                of the bio-computer, which we are attempting to create.

Fuyutsuki:      hmmm.

Akagi:          I am going to name them Magi.

Fuyutsuki:      Magi, the three wisemen from the East.
                Is that what you wanted to show me?

Akagi:          No. This way.
                Ritsuko, I'll be back soon.

-----------------------

Fuyutsuki:      This is...
               Is this that giant?

Akagi:          We of Gehirn call that object Adam.
                This is different.

#Gehirn - the German word for "brain."

Fuyutsuki:      Then,

Akagi:          Yes, the Adam created by humans, Eva.

Fuyutsuki:      Eva?

Gendou:         Our project to revive Adam, referred to as Project E.
                This is the model of the project, called Eva Unit Zero.

Fuyutsuki:      The prototype of a God?

Gendou:         Fuyutsuki, let us create a new era for humanity, together.

NEON
GENESIS
EVANGELION

EPISODE:21

He was aware of that he was still a child.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
                2015 AD.
-----------------------

Maya:           Hi, Senior.

Ritsuko:        Oh, sorry. Let's hurry with Rei's re-test.

Maya:           I haven't seen Katsuragi-san today.

Ritsuko:        Well, neither have I.

-----------------------
Ritsuko:        Katsuragi-san?

Misato:         Yeah, Katsuragi Misato, Nice to meet you.
-----------------------
        2005 AD.
        Nagano Pref. Second New Tokyo City.

------------------------
        University of Second Tokyo Campus.
-----------------------
Ritsuko:        Mom, the other day, I happened to meet
                a girl named Katsuragi.
                People always stare at me from a distance.
                It forces me to remember the importance of your name.
                She's different. She's really honest, even with me.
                I hear that she is the only survivor from the Investigation
                Commission.
                It seems that she was aphasic once. But now she
                is quite talkative, just like she's trying to make up for
                the aphasic days.

Akagi:          Ritchan, I am always underground.
                I am tired of having the box lunches provided.
                On the surface, the construction of Third Tokyo City
                has started, as a result of the second capital transfer plan.

Ritsuko:        For a couple of days, Misato was absent from school.
                I forced her to tell me why. She is such an idiot!
                She had been in bed with her boyfriend at her apartment,
                without getting tired, for a whole week.
                I was impressed to hear about another side of her.
                Today, she introduced me to the guy.
                He's handsome, but I'm not used to his frivolity.

Akagi:          You've been afraid of boys for a long time, Ritchan.
                That's because you were brought up by a mother only.
                Sorry, I've always let you do as you liked.
                I'm terrible. I am your mother only when I wish to be.

Akagi:          Mother...

-----------------------
        2004 AD.
----------------------
        Hakone, Second Underground Experimental Installation
----------------------

Fuyutsuki:      Why is there a child here.

Akagi:          This is Chief Ikari's son.

Fuyutsuki:      Ikari. This is not a day school.
                This is a very important day.

Yui:            Sorry, Dr. Fuyutsuki. I brought him here.

Fuyutsuki:      Yui-kun, it's your experiment today.

Yui:            That's why. I want to show the promising future to my child.

Akagi:          Those were the last words from Yui-san.
                A freak accident erased her from this world...
                Just as I had wished.
                What a disgusting woman I am.
                Ritchan, after that day, Chief Ikari completely changed.

------------------
Fuyutsuki:      Where were you this week?
                I know you're depressed.
                But your body belongs not only to yourself.

Ikari:          I know. Today, I'm starting a new project.
                I've already made the proposal to Chairman Kihl.

Fuyutsuki:      You're going to do That?

Ikari:          Right.
                The way to become a god, which no one has achieved.
                The Human Instrumentality Project.

-------------------------------------
        2008 AD.
------------------------------------

Ritsuko:        Mom, congratulations on completing the basic theory
                of Magi.
                I have good news, to congratulate you with.
                It has been informally decided that I will officially join
Gehirn.
                Starting next month, I will be engaged in Project E.

Guard:        Who are you?

Ritsuko:        Akagi Ritsuko of Technology Development Division.
                This is my ID.
                I hear that the basic installation of the Command Center
                has been completed, so I came here to see it.
                Well, it's just like a maze in here.

Guard:        The Chief and Dr. Akagi will see you in the Command Center.

-------------------
Akagi:          Are you alright?

Ikari:          I don't have regrets about my job.

Akagi:          You lie! You still remember Yui-san.
                But, that is fine with me.

-----------------------------------
        2010 AD.
-----------------------------------

Ikari:          That is Gehirn Headquarters.

Akagi:          Chief, good morning.
                Did you bring your child?
                Oh, but it was a son...

Ikari:          This is not Shinji. I decided to take care of an acquaintance's
                child. Her name is Ayanami Rei.

Ritsuko:        Reichan, hello!

Akagi:          This child [looks like] someone.
                Yui-san?

-------------------------------------
Akagi:          All the files concerning Ayanami Rei have already been deleted.
                White paper.
                What does this mean?
--------------------------------------
        S.C. MAGI SYSTEM COMPLETED
--------------------------------------

Akagi:          Magus Caspar, Magus Balthazar, Magus Melchior.
                Magi are three of myself.
                Me as a scientist, me as a mother, and me as a
                woman. These three are in conflict with each other.

Ritsuko:        Three of mom. The only thing you have to do is to switch the
                 power on.

Ritsuko:        Today, I'm leaving first. Misato is coming back.

Akagi:          Oh, yes, I heard she joined Gehirn.
                In Germany, as I remember.

Ritsuko:        Yes. The third branch office.

Akagi:          A long distance relationship.

Ritsuko:        I hear that they separated.

Akagi:          Oh, they seemed to be such a good couple.

Ritsuko:        Things between man and woman are difficult to
                understand, because they are not logical.

Akagi:          You are always cold about such things.
                You might loose your happiness.

Ritsuko:        The definition of happiness is even more difficult
                to figure out.
                Well, It's been a while since I went out to drink.

Akagi:          Good work.

Ritsuko:        I'm off.

-------------------
Akagi:          What?
                What? Do you have something to ask me, Reichan?

Rei:            I've lost my way.

Akagi:          Oh, then, let's leave together.

Rei:            No need.

Akagi:          But, you cannot get back by yourself.

Rei:            That is none of your business, you hag.

Akagi:          What...

Rei:            I can go out by myself. Leave me alone, you hag.

Akagi:          You shouldn't call a person "hag."

Rei:            You are a hag, aren't you.

Akagi:          I am getting angry! I'll ask the Chief to scold you.

Rei:            It's the Chief who calls you that.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.
                It's the Chief who calls you that.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.
                That hag is stubborn, that hag is now useless.

Akagi:          You are useless, because there are substitutes even if you die.
                Rei, you're the same as me.

Akagi:          Oh no!

----------------------------------
Fuyutsuki:      The Human Instrumentality Committee, chaired by Kihl Lorentz,
                immediately dissolved the Research Organization Gehirn.
                In order to carry out the whole project, the special
                institute NERV was established. And we all moved to NERV,
                except for one person, who had rendered remarkable service to
                the Magi System, Dr. Akagi.

----------------------------------
        2015 AD.
----------------------------------

Fuyutsuki:      It's you.

Ryouji:         It's been a while.

Fuyutsuki:      This action will result in your death.

Ryouji:         All I wish is to get closer to the truth...
                within me.

-------------------------------------------
Staff:          Thank you for your cooperation.

Misato:         Oh, this soon?

Staff:          Yes. the case was solved.

Misato:         How is he?

Staff:          I HAVE NO IDEA.

-------------------------------------------

Ryouji:         Hi! You're late.

-------------------------------------------

Misato:         I'm back.

        Message Playback

Ryouji:         Katsuragi, it's me.
                I'm sure you're listening to this message, after I
                caused you so much trouble. Sorry.
                Please tell Ritchan "I'm sorry."
                And there's one more thing to trouble you with.
                I've been growing flowers.
                I'd appreciate it if you could water the flowers for me.
                Shinji-kun knows where they are.
                Katsuragi, the truth is with you.
                Don't hesitate. Move ahead!

                If I can see you again, I will say the words that I could not
                say 8 years ago. Bye.

                It's 2 minutes past two.

Misato:         (Weeping)
                Idiot.... you're such an idiot.

Shinji:         That time, I did nothing but run away from Misato-san.
                There was nothing else could I do. Nothing could I say, since I
am
                a child. That is what I realized.

---------------------------------------------------------

Trailer,

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Male voice A : Fiction became reality.   What a fate!
                        The experimenter herself was the guinea pig.

Male voice B :  So, you think that the contact experiment
                        was the immediate cause?

Male voice A : The mental breakdown...
                         Was that a result of the contact ?

Male voice A : It's too cruel.   She committed suicide, leaving behind
                      such a young girl.

Male voice A : Hmm, perhaps.  I don't think that it was the only cause.

--
Kyoko : My darling Asuka, Mama cooked your favorite for you.
              If you complain about what you like and dislike,
              that girl will laugh you.
--

Female doctor : Everyday, she's like that.
                          She talks to the doll, thinking that it is her beloved
                          daughter.

Asuka's father : She might feel responsible, in her own way.  She devoted
              her whole life to research, and did not spend the time to take care
              of her own daughter.

Female Doctor : I sympathize with your grief.

Asuka's father : But, they are like a doll mother and a doll daughter.
                Maybe, there is very little difference between humans and
                dolls.

Female doctor :   Dolls are made by humans in their own image.
                If God really exists, we might just be dolls for him.

Asuka's father : Hearing such things, I can hardly believe you are
                        a doctor of modern medicine.

Female doctor : Yes, I am a doctor,  but I am still a
                        human, and a woman first.

Announce : Medical Staff meeting for the E incident will be held on time.
                 All senior staff report to the second meeting room.

--

Asuka's grandmother : You are so good, my Asuka.
                                  You may cry if you wish.

Asuka : It's O.K.  I won't cry.  I can think for myself.

Ritsuko : Can you hear me, Asuka ?  Your Synchro Ratio decreased
               by 8 whole points.   Don't think about extraneous things.
              Just the same as usual.

Asuka : I'm trying!

--

Episode 22
Don't be.

--
Maya : Recently Asuka's synchro ratio has been getting lower
             and lower.

Ritsuko : This is very troubling.  We don't have a spare.
          Maybe we should work on Rei's Unit-1 first.
          We cannot repair both of them at the same time.

--

Female operator A : The Mitosis Process in the left arm of Unit-2
                               has cleared the numerical goal.

Male operator A : The Necrosis Process is presently under 0.05%.

Female operator B : No problems in the Apotheosis Process.

--
Female operator C : Maintain the current status of the self-formation
                        system of Unit-0.

Female operator D : Connect each receptor to the second signal terminal.

--

Misato : (thinking)
              (What was born from Adam, the Eva series.
               We  have no other way to defeat the Angels, besides utilizing the
               very cause of Second Impact.
               In other words, those who utilize even the thing that tried
               to destroy them, those are human beings.)

Misato : After all, I probably hate Eva.  Probably, I'm trying to avenge my
             father.

Makoto : Major Katsuragi !

--
Misato : They have begun construction of Evas up to Unit 13?
             In seven places all over the world ?

Makoto : This information came via Shanghai.
              The source is reliable.

Misato : Why are they speeding up construction now?

Makoto : We have lost two Eva Units recently, and now another
             two Units are severely damaged.
             I suppose they're speeding the creation of a spare force for
             back up plans.

Misato : Who knows ?
             Even us; we have received parts from Germany which were
             originally made for Units 5 and 6.
             Nowadays they're spending a great deal of money.

Makoto :  The budget was recently doubled.
               From that, we might guess that the executives were driven into
               a corner.

Misato : I feel the Committee's impatience.

Makoto : So, do you think they are doing it because they
               anticipate cases of  several Angels attacking at once,
               and not just one like we've seen so far?

Misato : Hmm...    But there is no reason for them to do
             that outside of channels.   There might be another reason.

--
Misato :   It's been a long since we were all together, so
                what's this unsociable atmosphere ?

Asuka : I'm finished.

RING ! RING!

Misato : Asuka !

Asuka : I'm not going to get it!   After all, maybe it's a call from Kaji-san
          to Misato.  Misato should get it.

Misato : It can't be ...

Asuka : Oh, I'm so sorry that I forced the Unrivaled Shinji do such a
             trivial job.

Shinji : Hai, Hello...

Asuka : Hmf! I can't stand the way he's so formal.

Asuka : Ah !

Shinji : An international call from Germany for Asuka.
             It's your mother.

Asuka : Me?   From Mother?   Give me that!
           Hallo, Mutter!  Wir haben uns lange nichts gehoert...

#Asuka speaks German with a heavy Japanese accent. :)

Shinji (thinking):
              ( Listening to her speaking an unfamiliar language,
                I feel as if Asuka were a stranger.)

Shinji : Mother....
-

Asuka : ........Gute Nacht !

Shinji : That was a very long call.

Asuka : Hm!  It's only a sort of periodic communication.

Shinji : I'm envious. Family talk...

Asuka : Oh, it looks...
          It's only superficial.   She isn't my real mother.

Shinji : Oh !

Asuka : But, It doesn't mean I dislike her.
          It's just that I feel a little uncomfortable with her.
          Ah !  Why the hell am I telling you such a thing?!

Shinji : Sorry.

Asuka : HMMF !    It's the end for me when I get
           sympathy from you !

--

Maya : Synchrograph, minus 12.8.    It's on the borderline of the
          starting indicator.

Ritsuko : What a terrible state!
               Her results are worse than yesterday.

Misato : Asuka is feeling bad today.  She's in the second
             day of her period.

Ritsuko : Synchro ratio is not affected by external
               bodily disorders.

             (thinking)
              (We might have to change the Unit-2 pilot.)

              Asuka, you're all done.

--
Announce : Maintenance of Power system No. 8 is going to
                 start at 18 : 00 this evening.

Announce : The regular meeting on the first Command Center
                  project will be held on time.
                  Personnel of the General Affairs department report
                  to the meeting room NO. 2.

Ritsuko : Asuka's pride was badly damaged.

Misato : It's a natural, after being beaten that way.
             Moreover, it's much worse that she feels that she was
             beaten by Shinji.
             Maybe it's our limitations.  I'm afraid the three
             of us couldn't live together.

Ritsuko : You broke through the critical point?
               Is this the end of your nice family game?

Misato : I won't listen to this from someone who conceals her
             loneliness with pet cats.

Misato : Ah, I am very sorry!
             I'm just a little upset.

--
Asuka : Why do I have to go through such an awful time just because
           I'm a girl?  I don't want to have children.

--
Announce : Circular route No.7 is now closed because of an
                 accident.   Please use route No. 12 instead.

Asuka : Haa ?  Hm!

--
Rei : If you don't open your mind to her, Eva will not move.

Asuka : You mean I'm closing myself off?  Me ?

Rei : Yes.   Eva has her own mind.

Asuka : That doll?

Rei : You must be aware of that.

Asuka : Ha !   Today is a special day, since you, even you, talked to
          me.  Tomorrow maybe we'll have snow.
          Damn !  Are you that happy that I can't pilot Eva ?
          Don't worry.  when an Angel comes, the invincible Shinji will
          defeat it.
          We don't have to do anything.
          They only need Shinji !
          If Shinji is there, everything will be OK.
          A-ha !  It must be the end for me!  Not only Shinji, but a
          doll like you is sympathizing with me.

Rei : I am not a doll.

Asuka : Shut up !  You do anything you're ordered to.
           You'll kill yourself if Commander Ikari orders you to do so.

Rei : Yes, I will.

Asuka : Haa !

-
Asuka : You are just a doll, like I thought!
           You've always looked like a doll, and I've hated you for a
           long, long time!
           Haah!   I hate everyone !  Everyone  !

Asuka : mm, hmf!

--
Kensuke : Shinji is absent today, too.
               Ayamami's absent, as usual, but....

Hikari : Asuka too.
            Suzuhara is still in the hospital.

Kensuke : I guess that the situation is very serious, and they can't
               come to school.

--

Male operator B : All normal for the signals of EVA Unit-2.

Female operator E : Connection and Fusion of VA is within
             normal limits.
            The field of proliferation is within the expected range.

Asuka : You're just my doll.
          So move like I tell you to, and don't say NO.
          Why does a weapon have a mind?  What a hassle!
          Anyway, you must only say "Yes" to my orders.
          Hum?   This is stupid...

Shigeru :  All personnel, level one combat readiness.
                Prepare for aerial assault.

Asuka :  An Angel !   They're still coming?

--A PART:END---

EVANGELION
EPISODE:22
              Don't Be.
---B PART---

Shigeru : Visual confirmation of the Angel.
              This is at maximum zoom.

Makoto : It's not moving from orbit.

Shigeru : It is maintaining a constant distance from us.

Misato : That means,  it's waiting for a chance to
             come down; or is it going to destroy us without
             approaching ?

Makoto : We can't get at it easily.

Misato : Anyway, we can't do anything unless it moves to
             within our firing range.
             Eva cannot defeat an enemy in orbit.
             How's Rei  ?

Maya : She and Unit-0 are in good condition.  They will be OK.

Misato : Roger.   Unit-0, move out!  Prepare for extreme long
             distance firing.
--
              Unit-2, Asuka, be ready for a sortie as back-up.


Asuka : Back-up?  Me?  For Unit-0?

Misato : That's right. Take the rear guard.

Asuka :    You must be kidding!  Eva Unit-2, move out.

--

Ritsuko : Asuka !
--

Misato : It's OK.  Allow her in the front if she wishes.

Makoto : Major Katsuragi !

Ritsuko : You mean, if Asuka fails here, she will be dismissed.

Maya : That means, it is the last chance for her ?

Ritsuko : We must prepare in case the Unit-2 pilot has
               to be changed.

Maya : Yes, Ma'am.

Makoto : By the way, aren't you sending out Unit One?

Misato : It's been frozen by strict orders from Commander Ikari.
              (thinking)
              (We have to accept it after an accident like that...)

--
Asuka : If I fail this mission, I might lose my position as
           pilot of Unit-2.   You must not make any mistakes,
           Asuka.
--
Shigeru : Target is still out of the firing rage.

Asuka : Oh, hurry up, come here, you lazy Angel !
           Your laziness is getting on my nerves!

Asuka : A-HA !

(BGM : "Hallelujah Chorus " from Handel's "Messiah")

--
Misato : The Enemy's directional weapon ?

Shigeru : No, no thermal energy reaction detected.

Maya : Abnormal patterns in Psychograph.
          Mental contamination will start soon.

Ritsuko : An Angel's psychic attack ?
               Can they understand the mind of human beings ?

--
Asuka : Shit!!

--
Female operator  F : ..... diminished.

Shigeru : No effect.  It is out of range.

--
Asuka : Ack... Wu-aaa...

--
Shigeru : Unit 2 has no ammunition in its rifle.

Misato : What is the result of the analysis of the ray?

Makoto : Energy wave of visible wave length.
             It's similar to an AT field, but the details are still
             unknown.

Ritsuko : How's Asuka ?

Maya : Situation dangerous.
          Mental contamination has broken the borderline.
--
Asuka : No !   I... Don't enter into me !

Asuka : Ouch !

Asuka : Ouch !

Asuka : Aaah !

Asuka : Ou !

Asuka : No !

Asuka : No-oo !

Asuka : No !

Asuka : Don't peep into my mind !

--
              Please !  Don't invade into my mind anymore.

Misato : Asuka !

Maya : Her psychograph is at the critical point.

Ritsuko : Her mental circuit is now being severely damaged.
             Further overload will be  too dangerous.

Misato : Asuka, retreat !

--
Asuka : No !

Misato : This is an order.
             Asuka, I order you to retreat.

Asuka : No, Never!
          I'd rather die here than retreat!

--
Misato : Asuka !

--

Male operator C : Accelerator, start synchronization.

Female operator G : Voltage increasing. Approaching
             the pressure range.

Male operator D : Compulsory Focusing start !

Female operator H : Correct the error from the rotation and
                gravity of the earth, 0.03.

Operator : Pressure in the barrel is at the maximum point.

--
Makoto : Release the final safety lock.
              All personnel, prepare for firing !

Rei : Ooo !

--
Shigeru : No effect !    Not enough energy to break
               through the AT field from this great a distance.

Makoto : But, output  power is at maximum.
              We cannot get more power.

Maya : Unit-2  psychograph signal is very weak.

Ritsuko : How about the mind barrier from the LCL?

Maya : No effect.  We cannot even expect the buffering effect.

Ritsuko :  Give first priority to life support.
                Don't allow feedback from Eva.

Maya : Yes, Ma'am.

Ritsuko : (thinking)
              (That ray seems to scan Asuka's mental wave length
               pattern.   Oh no... does this mean the Angel is trying to
               search the human mind ?)

--
Little Asuka : Wu-ahhn........

Asuka : Why am I crying ?
          I decided that I would not cry anymore.

--
Asuka's father : What is it, Asuka?  It's a present from your
                       new mother.  Don't you like it?

Little Asuka : No.

Asuka's Father : So, what do you want?

Asuka : I am not a baby.    I will become an adult earlier than
          other people.  I don't need a teddy bear.

Little Asuka : Look at me.
                    Mama, please,  don't stop being my mother.

Kyoko : Please, come to heaven with me.

Little Asuka : Mama, Mama, Please, don't kill me!
                    No !
                    I am not Mama's doll.
                    I will think for myself, and I will live on my own.
                    I don't need Daddy or Mama.
                    I will live on my own.

Asuka : No !  Don't make me remember such things!
           I want to forget, so don't dig into my memories!
           I don't want to remember such terrible things!
           Stop !  Stop !

--
Asuka : My mind has been sullied.
           Kaji-san, it's polluted.  What should I do?!
           My mind has been polluted !

--

Female operator I : Unit-2, all activity ceased.

Female operator J : A problem has arisen in the life support
              system.

Maya : The pilot will enter the danger zone.

Shigeru : No change in the target.
               Relative distance still shows no change.

Makoto : The possibility that target will move into the firing range
             of Unit-0 is 0.02 %.

Misato : Can we transport Unit-0 by air ?
             Shoot the target from the sky ?
             No, we can't do that.
             If the Angel shoots Unit-0 during the approach, we
              can't protect it.

Shinji : I'll go out in Unit-1.

Misato : Mmmm......

Kouzou : No. This target is one which invades the mind of
              pilots.

Gendou : We must avoid a situation where Unit-1 is invaded now.

Shinji : So, you mean it's OK as long as I'm not defeated?

Gendou : That cannot be guaranteed.

Shinji : But, if this goes on, Asuka will ....

Gendou : OK. I don't care.
             Rei, descend to Dogma and use the Lance.

Kouzou : Lancea Longini ?    Ikari, That is.......

Gendou : We have no other choice to destroy a target in orbit,
              where AT field from here cannot reach.
             Hurry !

Misato : But, there is the possibility that the contact between Adam and Eva
             will cause Third Impact.   It's too dangerous.
              Commander Ikari, please don't do it!

Misato : (thinking)
            (That isn't the true story?  It's a lie?
             Second Impact wasn't caused by contact with an Angel.)
--
Female operator K : Open Areas No. 10 to No. 15 of  Central
             Dogma.  Unit-0 passed the No. 6 Malvoisie.
             Next, open Areas No. 16 to No. 20.

--
Misato : You say Third Impact will not be aroused by such a small
             thing.   So, what was the real cause of Second Impact?

--
Kouzou : Ikari, I think it is too early to use that.

Gendou : The committee has started the mass production
              of the Eva series.  This is a  chance, Fuyutsuki.

Kouzou : But, I cannot...

Gendou : We cannot make the clock move backwards.
              But, we can make it move forward with our own hands.

--
Kouzou : The Old Men will not allow it.

Gendou : We must put an end to everything before SEELE takes
             action.
             It's not a good idea to lose Unit-2 right now.

Kouzou : But. if we use the Lancea Longini without the permission
              of SEELE, that will be many problems.
-
Gendou : If a reason exists, that is enough.  I don't see anything else
           to consider.

Kouzou : Reason ?  What you really want is an excuse.

Makoto : The amplitude of EEG (Electroencephalograph) of Unit-2
             pilot has decreased to 0.06.

Maya : It's the critical point for Life Support.

Shigeru : Unit-0 passed No.2.  She will be coming over the
              ground.

--
Misato : That is Lancea Longini.

Shigeru : Unit-0, take position for throwing.

Makoto : Confirm the target.
             Correct the error, OK.

--
Maya : Start the countdown.
          10 second before zero.
           8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,

--
Rei : Hiii !

--
Shigeru : Target annihilated.

Maya : Eva Unit-2 is free.

Kouzou : How about Lancea Longini?

Makoto : It surpassed escape velocity.
              It is now moving into lunar orbit.

Kouzou : It's almost impossible to recover it.

Makoto : Yes.  There is currently no way to retrieve that
              much mass.
--

Maya : Unit-2 is all right.   Graphs are within normal limits.

Shigeru : Send the Unit to Cage NO.2.

Female operator L : Use route No. 67.

Misato : How's Asuka ?

Makoto : Confirmed; the pilot is alive.
             Quarantine for contamination complete.

Misato : I see...

--
Shinji : I am glad as you're OK, Asuka.

Asuka : Shut up!   Who are you calling OK?
          It's the worst;  I was rescued by that
          girl!   Rescued by that damned girl!
          I would rather die than that.
          I hate, hate, everyone, everything!

---B PART:END---

Trailer ;
Unit-0 is captured and penetrated by an Angel.
To protect Shinji from that invasion, Rei wishes
for her own death.
She becomes light and heat, and vanishes with The Third
New Tokyo City.
