"Neon Genesis Evangelion (Japanese title: Shin-seiki Evangelion)" is 
the brand new anime from GAINAX, which is famous for "Gunbuster" and 
"Nadia: The Secret Blue Water." The first episode of it was broadcasted
 in Tokyo Japan on October 4, 1995.

I love Gunbuster very much. Although I expected much from it, they 
never failed to measure up to my expectations. It was a great anime 
of supreme high quality and the direct descendant of Gunbuster. 
Never miss this TV anime series if you like it.

 *All destination panels at the station show 'All lines are out of


 *In the car, someone is driving

Misato: Why, of all times, have I missed him at such a time?! ......
   What am I going to do? 

     #Japanese below the photo of Shinji is his name 'Ikari Shinji'
     #written by katakana. He wears a school uniform, which most of
     #junior high school students must wear in Japan. His wear in
     #this episode seems a kind of them.


 *A boy is calling in a telephone booth

Phone: All normal lines are out of order due to the state of special

Shinji: Out of order ... I shouldn't have come ... 

     #The Traffic panel shows "Tokyo-3: 13km, Gotenba: 35km." Gotenba
     #is located at the foot of Mt. Fuji.

     #You can see some handwriting on the photo. It says: Dear
     #Shinji-kun. Because I'll come to meet you, wait for me, please.
     #Attention to here (her bust)!

Shinji: I may not be able to meet her. I can't help it. I'll go to
   the shelter. 

 *A sudden strong wind

Shinji: Uh 

Shinji: Ahh 

 *A gigantic creature walking

Shinji: Ahhhhhh! 


 *Operational Display

     #I wonder if the place where I think UN Force Headquarters in
     #Tokyo-3 is the same place as where I regard as Nerv

     #I'll check it. But unfortunately I don't have enough information
     #to confirm it.

Female Voice: The identifiable moving object is still approaching
   this place. 

Male Voice: We've got the visual image of the target. I'll transfer
   it to the main screen. 

 *Two men (Gendo and Fuyutsuki)

Fuyutsuki: It must be 15 years. 

Gendo: Yes, certainly. 

Fuyutsuki: Angels. 





 *Attacks against Angel

Aircraft: All missiles hit the target! 

Aircraft: Ah! 

 *An UN aircraft crashed

Shinji: Ahh! 

 *Misato stops the car and opens the door

Misato: Sorry to have kept you waiting. 


Male Voice: The target is still intact. It's moving toward Tokyo-3 as

Female Voice: It cannot be stopped with the air force firepower. 

 *Missile attacks

 *3 commanders of the UN force

Sub Commander A: Total war! Mobilize all divisions at Atsugi and
   Iruma Bases to the battle! 

     #Atsugi the US bases in Japan. Iruma is the Japanese Air Defense
     #Force's base.

Sub Commander B: Don't hold back! Smash the target at any cost! 

 *Missile attack. But no effect.

Sub Commander A: Why?! It must have been a direct hit! 

Sub Commander B: The tank battalion was totally destroyed. Guided
   missiles and gun bombs have no effect on it... 

Sub Commander A: Useless! With such poor firepower, we'll get

 *Gendo & Fuyutsuki

Fuyutsuki: It is protected by AT-field as we expected. 

Fuyutsuki: As I thought, AT-field has been expanded. 

Gendo: Normal weapons have no effect on Angels. 

 *A phone call

One of Cmdr: Yes, sir. I'll employ that as previously arranged. 


 *Angel in the distance

 *Misato looking through field glasses

Misato: Hey! It can't be... Are they going to use a N2-mine?! Lie

 *A big explosion


Sub Cmdr A: We did it! 

Sub Cmdr B: Sorry that we've left nothing for you to do. 

Female Voice: Shock wave is coming! 


 *Misato and Shinji near the overturned car

Misato: Are you all right? 

Shinji: Yes, but something is crunchy in my mouth. 

Misato: That's fine! Are you ready? 

Misato: Here goes! 

 *They succeeded in turning over the car.

Misato: Thanks a lot. Good job. 

Shinji: Katsuragi-san... 

Misato: Call me Misato. 

Shinji: Me, too. 


Cmdr-in-Chief: How is the target? 

Female Voice: It can't be captured due to radio wave obstruction. 

Sub Cmdr A: It was such a massive explosion. It has been brought to
   an end. 

Male Voice: Sensors are operating again. 

Female Voice: An energy reaction in the center of the explosion! 

Sub Cmdr A: Whaaaaaaaat?! 

Male Voice: Visual Image is regained. 

Commanders: Oh...! 

Cmdr-in-Chief: It was our trump card ... Unbelievable ... 

Sub Cmdr A: What a monster! 

 *Angel regenerating itself


 *Misato driving her broken car and making a phone call

Misato: Sure. Don't worry. He is under my protection at top priority.
   Prepare a car train for us. A linear one, please. Yes. I'll bear
   the full responsibility for him because it was my idea to meet him
   in the first place. Bye. 

Misato (thinking): But it's terrible! I've just restored my car... It
   is a jalopy now... 

Misato (thinking): 33 loan repayments to go ... and the repair

Misato (thinking): What was even worse, my only good clothes have
   been ruined... 

Shinji: Misato-san... 

Misato (thinking): I was in high spirits. My goodness... 

Shinji: I say, Misato-san... 

Misato: Eh, what did you say? 

Shinji: Is it OK that you did such a thing...? 

 *Batteries which she seems to stole...

Misato: Ah, It's OK. No problem. It is during an emergency... We
   can't do anything if the car doesn't run. In the addition, I am an
   international officer even if I don't seem like it. 

Shinji: That doesn't seem like a very good excuse. 

Misato: Uninteresting boy. You look so calm, very unlike your pretty

Shinji: You think so ... 

Misato: Hmm, are you angry? Sorry, I'm sorry. It's natural because
   you a boy. 

Shinji: You are childish for your age, aren't you? 

 *Misato driving a car roughly


 *Injured Angel stands in the plain

Fuyutsuki: It is regenerating itself as we expected. 

Gendo: Otherwise, it would be useless as an independent weapon. 

Cmdr: Ohhh... 

Fuyutsuki: Oh, I'm impressed. It can also amplify its own functions. 

Gendo: In addition, it has acquired intelligence. 

Fuyutsuki: The next invasion is a matter of time. 


 *A car train departing from the station

Announce: The gate is closing. Attention, please. The train is about
   to depart. This train ... 

Shinji: The special agency Nerv? 

Misato: Yes, the secret organization directly attached to the United

Shinji: It's the one which my father belongs to. 

Misato: Yeah, well. Do you know what he does? 

Shinji: I heard from the teacher that it's an important job for
   protecting the human race. 


 *Gendo standing before 3 commanders of the UN force in Nerv

Cmdr-in-Chief: You are the commander of this operation from now.
   We'll watch how you will deal with it. 

Gendo: Yes, sir. 

Sub Cmdr B: Thinking of our available weapons, I'll have to admit
   that we have no effective measures against the target. 

Cmdr-in-Chief: But, are you confident of defeating it? 

Gendo: Nerv exists for that purpose. 

Cmdr-in-Chief: We expect much from you. 

     #UN Commanders disappear.

Female Voice: The target is still as it was. 

Male Voice: The present effective rate of the interception is 7.5 %. 

Fuyutsuki: The U. N. Troops can't help it.... What are you going to

Gendo: I'll activate Evangelion Unit One. 

Fuyutsuki: Unit One? But we have no pilot. 

Gendo: No problem. Another spare will be brought. 


 *Shinji and Misato in her car on the car train

Shinji: Are we going to where my father is? 

Misato: Well. Yes, we are. 

Shinji: Father ... 

Misato: By the way, were you given an ID by your father? 

Shinji: Oh, yes. 

Shinji: Here it is. 

Misato: Thanks! 

     #Japanese on the top of the paper is 'Ikari Shinji'. The one at
     #the bottom is 'Come! Ikari Gendo'.

Misato: Then, read this. 

     #'Top Secret' is on Misato's side. 'Welcome to Nerv' is on
     #Shinji's side.

Shinji: It's about my father's work... Are there anything for me to

Shinji: I can't say I'm surprised. He can't write to me ... unless he
   wants me to do anything. 

Misato: I know. You consider him to be a tough customer. Me too. 

 *Underground city appears

Shinji: Ah, great! It's a real geofront! 

     # 'Geo-front' is English word which was made in Japan. It means
     #underground space which the people can use for living or
     #manufacture etc. Because Japan is small, the development plan
     #of underground space is studied.

Misato: That's right. This is our secret base, Nerv Headquarters.
   It's also the foundation for rebuilding the world and the fort for
   the human race. 





 *Shinji and Misato on the moving pavement

Misato: That's strange. I'm sure this is the right way ... 

     #Japanese on the top means 'Nerv Headquarters'. The handwritten
     #one on the map means 'HERE!' The handwritten 'WC' beside the
     #map means 'lavatory/rest room'.

     #Japanese on the top means 'Nerv Headquarters'. The handwritten
     #one on the map means 'HERE!'

Misato: I'd really rather not wear a skirt this place. Anyway, where
   has Ritsuko gone? Sorry that I'm not familiar with this place. 

Shinji: We passed here some time ago. 

Misato: But don't worry. All systems exist to be used. 


Announce: Chief of Project E at Section 1 of Technical Department,
   Dr. Akagi Ritsuko, Dr. Akagi Ritsuko. Please contact with Captain
   Katsuragi Misato at Section 1 of Operation Department immediately. 

     #Misato's rank is 'Ichi-i' in Japanese.

     #Japanese on the cylinder seems to means 'Air'.

 *Ritsuko takes her wet suit off.

Ritsuko: I'm dumbfound. She must have got lost again. 


 * Ritsuko coming into the elevator which Shinji and Misato took

Misato: Uhhm. Ha...Hi, Ritsuko... 

Ritsuko: What did you do, Captain Katsuragi? We are short of hands
   and time! 

Misato: Sorry... 

Ritsuko: He is that boy. 

Misato: Yes, 'the third child' according to Malduck's report. 

Ritsuko: Nice to meet you. 

Shinji: Ah ... me too. 

Misato: He is very much like his father ...... in that they aren't


 *Gendo descending by the lift

Gendo: Well, I trust you. 

Fuyutsuki: They'll meet after three years' interval. 

Male Voice: Sub-Commander, the target has begun to move again. 

Fuyutsuki: Well. Red alert! All hands to battle stations! 


 *Shinji, Misato and Ritsuko coming up on the lift with a pink

Female Voice: Repeat, Red alert! All hands to battle stations!
   Prepare for the interception of the enemies on the ground. 

Misato: Did you hear what she said? 

Ritsuko: That's serious. 

Misato: By the way, how is Unit One? 

Ritsuko: It is equipped with B type. It is being frozen. 

Misato: Does it really work? I heard that it has never worked yet. 

Ritsuko: The possibility of it working is 0.000000001%. O9-system
   seems a good name for it. 

Misato: You mean it won't work, don't you? 

Ritsuko: Oh, how rude you are! It isn't zero. 

Misato: It's only a number. Anyway, to say "It doesn't work at all"
   ... will be no excuse. 


 *A ship going on the pink water

 *Only a line of light coming through the entrance

 *A sudden blackout

Shinji: Uh,uh, it's pitch dark. 

 *The big face of Evangelion before Shinji

Shinji: Ah, face ... A gigantic robot ... 

Ritsuko: You can't find this in the manual. 

Shinji: Eh? 

Ritsuko: This is the Multi-purpose Humanoid Fighting Machine
   EVANGELION which the humanity finally developed. 

Shinji: Is it also Father's work? 

Gendo: Yes. 

 *Gendo appears at the top of the room

Gendo: It's been a long time. 

Shinji: Father ... 

Gendo: Sally. 

Misato: Sally?! Unit Zero is being frozen... No kidding ... Do you
   mean that you'll activate Unit One? 

Ritsuko: We have no other choice. 

Misato: Hey! We can't have Rei get it on. We have no pilots. 

Ritsuko: One has been just delivered. 

Misato: Are you serious? 

Ritsuko: Ikari Shinji-kun, you will get into it. 

Misato: But, even in the case of Rei, it took seven full months for
   her to synchronize with Eva. 

Ritsuko: You may only take a seat. We'd never expect more from you. 

Misato: But ... 

Ritsuko: At present, the interception against Angel's attack is top
   priority. We have no choice but to have someone get into it even
   if there is a little potential for synchronizing with Eva. 

Misato: You may be right... 

Shinji: Why did you call me? 

Gendo: For exactly the reason you think. 

Shinji: Do you mean that I should get into it and fight against the
   guy which I saw. 

Shinji: No way! What are you saying now?! I have been thinking that
   you didn't want me?! 

Gendo: I called you just because I need you now. 

Shinji: Why me ...? 

Gendo: Because others can't ... 

Shinji: I can't do that. I've neither seen it nor heard it. Why are
   you saying that I can do it? 

Gendo: Hear the explanations. 

Shinji: No. I can't. It's impossible. 

Gendo: If you get into it, stop wasting time. Otherwise, get out! 

 *Many maintenance men looking at the scenery anxiously

 *Angel attacking the ground above the Nerv Headquarters

Gendo: That guy seems to have found this place. 

Ritsuko: Shinji-kun, we have no time. 

Misato: Get into it. 

Shinji: No way. After coming all the way, it's ridiculous. 

Misato: Shinji-kun... Why did you come here? Don't run away, from
   your father, above all from yourself. 

Shinji: I understand. But, I don't think I can do that! 

Gendo: Fuyutsuki. 

 *Fuyutsuki on the screen

Gendo: Wake up Rei. 

Fuyutsuki: Is she available. 

Gendo: She is still alive at least. 

Fuyutsuki: Yes. 

Gendo: Rei. 

Rei: Yes. 

Gendo: The spare turned out to be useless. 

Gendo: Again. 

Rei: Yes. 

Ritsuko: Reconfigure the system of Unit One for Rei! Restart! 

Female Voice: Yes, sir. I'll stop the current process and restart it. 

Shinji: I'm unnecessary as I expected... 

 *Rei on the bed coming in

 *Angel attacking again

Shinji: Watch out! 

 *Eva protected Shinji with the right hand

Shinji: Ah! 

Male Voice: Eva moved! What was the matter with it?! 

Male Voice: It tore off the binding attached to the right arm. 

Ritsuko: It's impossible! Even the entry plug has never been inserted
   yet. It can't move! 

Misato: It reacts without the interface... Or rather, did it protect
   him? ... He can do it! 

 *Shinji runs to Rei and holds her

 *Rei suffering very much

Shinji: Don't run away, Don't run away, Don't run away, Don't run
   away, Don't run away ...... I'll do it. I'll get into it.

Operator: Begin the first connection. 

 *Shinji in the entry plug (a cockpit)

Ritsuko: Commence LCL injection into entry plug 

Shinji: Hmm? What is this? Ah, ah, ah, Uguh...... 

Ritsuko: Don't worry. After your lungs fill with LCL, it'll directly
   supply you with oxygen. You'll get used to it soon. 

Shinji: Fuah, guhah... I feel sick. 

Misato: Stand it! You are a boy, aren't you?! 

Staff: Connect to the main power supply. 

Staff: Transmit power to all circuits. 

Staff: Yes, sir. 


Operator: The second contact is beginning. 

Operator: I'll commence the second contact. 

Operator: The connection of the A10-nerve is operational. 

Ritsuko: Japanese has been fixed to the system as the fundamental
   rules for the operation of Eva. All initial
   contacts are all right. 

Maya: Connect the mutual lines. The rate of synchronization is 41.3%. 

Ritsuko: Great! 

Maya: All values of the harmonics are normal. Everything is under

Ritsuko: It will go! 

Misato: Ready for launching. 


Staff: Release the 1st lock bolt! 

Staff: It has been released. 

Staff: Move the unbilical bridge!

Operator: OK. Eva Unit One to the launching pad. 

 *Evangelion is ready to be launched.

Operator: The course is clear. All green. 

Ritsuko: It's ready for launching. 

Misato: OK. Are you OK? 

Gendo: Of course. We have no future unless we beat Angels. 

Fuyutsuki: Ikari, are you really satisfied with it? 

Misato: Launch! 


 *Angel walking in the city

 *Eva appears on the ground

Misato: Shinji-kun. Come back alive. 

Ending Theme Song

   everything. Shinji runs away from his father. Misato's conceit

   course, next time, service, service.
