 *Eva-01 roars.

Misato: It's eating the Angel. 

Ritsuko: The bindings are being released themselves. We can't stop
   Eva any more. 

Ryoji: Eva-01's awakening and releasing. Seele don't keep quiet when
   they know this. 

Committee A: S2 organ which can't be emerged in Eva series. 

Committee B: I didn't imagine that it can take it in. 

Committee C: It's an accident which is much different from the events
   of our Seele's scenario. 

Committee D: This can't be adjusted easily. 

Committee A: IKARI Gendo. I'm afraid that it was our fault to give
   him NERV. 

Kiel: But it was the only one who could do all plans. 

Kozo: It began. 

Gendo: Yes, everything has yet to come. 

Kokoro no Katachi 

Episode 20 

Hito no Katachi 


Maya: Evas' damages are beyond Henflick limitation. 

Ritsuko: It may take a long time for everything to return to its
   former state. 

Maya: Fortunately, MAGI system can be transplanted. We can begin to
   work tomorrow, say. 

Ritsuko: But this place seems to be useless. 

Shigeru: Decision of discarding is a matter of time now. 

Ritsuko: Well. For the present, we can only use the reserve Control

Maya: Without MAGI? 

Ritsuko: Yes. We'll be at work this morning after brushing dust off. 

Maya: It's too cramped around the chairs and the sensors aren't
   operated smoothly. It's hard to operate here. 

Shigeru: The layout is the same as the familiar Control Center-01. 

Maya: I have a feeling of wrongness. 

Ritsuko: At present that's better than we can't use it. It's Unit One
   which has been proved to be used. 

Misato: It has been binded in the cage. Is it all right? 

Makoto: Neither heat, eletrons, electromagnetic wave nor other
   chemical energy are detected within it. S2 organ is completely

Misato: Nevertheless, this Unit One moved three times. 

Misato: Only with the visible situations, we can't decide how we
   should do with it. 

Makoto: If we do something thoughtlessly, there is no saying what it
   may do. It's the same as Katsuragi-san. I'm sorry. 

Kiel: But it isn't only a question of Eva-01. 

Committee C: That's right. Serious damage to Unit Zero and Unit Two.
   Partially destroyed Headquarters. Exposure of Central Dogma. It
   was great damage. 

Committee A: I can't estimate how much money and time we lost. 

Comittee B: It was because a bell isn't attached to Ikari's neck. 

Comittee D: A bell is attached but it didn't ring. 

Kiel: The bell which doesn't ring has no meanings. We'll make it work
   next time. 

Ryoji: Oh dear! These developments were unxpected, weren't you? For
   Committee, well, Seele, how will you make an excuse? 

Kozo: Unit One wasn't under our control. This is an accident. 

Gendo: So Unit One is frozen. Until Committee's another order. 

Ryoji: That's a good dealing. Well, your son has been taken in it,
   you know. 

Maya: We're hopeless, after all. The signal for ejecting an entry
   plug isn't accepted. 

Ritsuko: How is the backup and the dummy signal? 

Maya: They are also rejected. Even the direct circuit is

Makoto: The video circuit is connected. I'll transfer it to the main

All: Uhhhhh! 

Misato: What is it? 

Ritsuko: This is the true character of 400% synchronization. 

Misato: I can't believe it! What the hell is the matter with

Ritsuko: He has been taken in Eva-01. 

Misato: What do you mean? What is Eva?! 

Ritsuko: The thing created by humans with a humanlike figure. I can't
   say it in other way. 

Misato: Created by humans? You only make a copy of what you pick up
   on Antarctica then. Original? I'm dumbfounded. 

Ritsuko: It isn't just a copy. A human will is in it. 

Misato: Do you mean that this was of someone's will? 

Ritsuko: Or Eva's. 

Misato: Do something! You made that, didn'd you? Take the


Radio: ... as for the problem of 

Rei: I'm still alive... 

Asuka: I know the woman is well! Misato, don't phone me for such a
   trivial thing! 

Asuka: I could nothing... I was outdone by that stupid Shinji... How


Misato: Shinji-kun salvaging project? 

Ritsuko: Yes. What to be called Shinji-kun's life still exists. 

Misato: Is life respected this time? 

Ritsukko: Losing Shinji-kun is out of the question now. 

Misato: I don't know. What Nerv want isn't his life but Unit One as
   their tool. 

Ritsuko: I don't deny it. 

Maya: Shinji-kun's body is supposed to be drifting in the entry plug
   in the quantum form because it lost its ego-border. 

Misato: You mean that Shinji has transformed into something which we
   can't identify visibly? 

Maya: Definitely. The LCL ingredients in the plug changed chemically
   are now very like the seawater of the primitive earth. 

Misato: Life soup... 

Ritsuko: All of the materials which formed Shinji-kun are kept in the
   plug. What should be called his soul exits there. In fact, his ego
   image gives pseudosubstance to his plugsuit. 

Maya: Salvaging means making his body reconstructed and his soul
   fixed in it. 

Misato: Is it possible? 

Ritsuko: With MAGI's supports. 

Misato: You're saying about the theory, aren't you? Nobody knows the
   results without doing. 


Shinji: What's this? Where am I? Entryplug of Unit One? Nobody is
   here. I'm not. What's this? What's this? What's this? I don't
   know. These people. Yes. The people who I know, the people who
   know me. I see. Everything is in my world. What's this? I don't
   know it although this is my world. An image from outside. An
   unpleasant image. I see. An enemy. ENEMY, ENEMY, ENEMY, ENEMY. Our
   enemies called Angel which have the angelic names. Evs's and
   Nerv's target. Revenge of Misato's father. Why am I fighting? I go
   so far as to have such a bitter experience. 

Asuka: You idiot! Unknown fellows come and attack against us, you
   know. It's natural that we have to deal with a lot of difficulties
   coming unexpectedly down on our heads. 

Shinji: I don't need the reason? I shouldn't think of it? ENEMY,
   ENEMY, ENEMY, ENEMY, EVERYONE IS ENEMY! Something threatening me,
   us. It means ENEMY. Definitely. Nobody think badly of me if I
   myself protect my life, our lives! ENEMY, ENEMY, ENEMY, ENEMY. My
   ENEMY! My ENEMY!! Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! You injured Toji and
   killed Mother! Father. Uhhhhhh! 

Rei: Why do you hate your father? 

Shinji: Of course. A father like him. 

Rei: Can't you understand your father? 

Shinji: Of course because I have hardly ever met him. 

Rei: Is that the reason why you hate him? 

Shinji: Yes. Father don't need me. Father deserted me. 

Rei: Am I the substitute? 

Shinji: Definitely. It must be the truth! I was deserted because he
   had Ayanami. 

Chibi-Rei: As if you didn't run away of your own accord. 

Shinji: Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! Father is to be totally blamed!
   Then I was going to tell him that I hated him. 

Shinji: Are you telling me to get into this and have fearful
   experiences, Father? 

Gendo: Yes. 

Shinji: What! I won't. What are you saying now?! Father, can't you
   need me? 

Gendo: I called you out of necesity. 

Shinji: Why me? 

Gendo: Nobody but you can't. 

Shinji: I can't. I can't do that because I've never seen it nor heard

Shinji: No. I knew it. I remember. I knew Eva. And then I ran away
   from Father and Mother. 




WEAVING A STORY 2:oral stage 


Operator A: At present, the temperature is kept at 36. 

Male Operator: Electromagnetic radiation pulse is normal. Wave
   pattern is B. 

Female Operator: Every instrumentation unit is working normally. 

Maya: Making the outline of salvaging project in just one month. Only
   Senpai could do it. 

Ritsuko: What a shame that I didn't make the original plan. These are
   the data which came from the experiments done 10 years ago. 

Maya: Did such an accident happen during the development of Eva. 

Ritsuko: It was the accident before I joined Nerv. I heard that my
   mother was there. I know it just by the data. 

Maya: What was the result? 

Ritsuko: They failed, I heard. 


Shinji: Comfortable. Warm. This is human warmth, isn't this? I've
   never had it. 

Rei: What is loneliness? 

Shinji: I've never known it. But I seem to know it. 

Rei: What is happiness? 

Shinji: I've never known it. But I seem to know it. 

Rei: Are others kind to you? 

Shinji: Yes. 

Rei: Why? 

Shinji: It's because I'm a pilot of Eva. They are kind to me because
   I get into Eva. It's the reason why I can stay here. It's all
   which support me. So I must get into Eva. 

Rei: Get into. 

Shinji: Enemy. Yes, I must fight against the ones which everyone
   calls enemies. 

Rei: Fight. 

Shinji: I must win. Yes, I mustn't lose. I must get into Eva as they
   say and I must win as they say. Otherwise, nobody, nobody, nobody

Misato: Do your best. 

Misato: Hang in there! 

Asuka: What are you doing?! Do it right! 

Toji: Knock'em dead! 

Kensuke: Good luck! 

Gendo: Well done, Shinji. 

Shinji: Misato-san, Ritsuko-san, Asuka, Toji, Kensuke and Father
   praise me. They praise me because I get into Eva. The fellow like
   me. Everyone tells me to get into it. Father does. I'll show him
   what I can do. 

Misato: Do your best. 

Shinji: I'm doing my best. I am. Please be kind to me. I've been
   fighting so much. I'm fighting as well as I can. Take care of me,
   please. Be kind to me! 

Misato: I'm kind to you. Well, Shinji-kun. Do you want to become one
   with me? Do you want us to become one both mentally and
   physically? That's so comfortable. I'm ready. I'm always ready. 

Asuka: Hey, idiot Shinji. Do you want to become one with me? Do you
   want us to become one both mentally and physically? That's so
   comfortable. I'm saying like this. Come on! 

Rei: Ikari-kun. Do you want to become one with me? Do you want us to
   become one both mentally and physically? That's so comfortable.

Misato: Do you want to become one with me? 

Asuka: Do you want us to become one both mentally and physically? 

Rei: That's so comfortable. 

Misato: Come on, now. Fell easy. Make your mind free. 

Female Operator: All search needles were driven in. 

Male Operator: Electromagnetic wave pattern is fixed at 0, -3. 

Maya: Ego-border pulse was connected. 

Ritsuko: Roger. Begin to salvage him. 

Makoto: Roger. Signal-1 is sent. 

Shigeru: Eva received the signal. 

Maya: Now, signal-2 and signal-3 is sent. 

Male Operator: XXXXX is under the nomal condition. (Wadakun: I can't
   find any word) 

Female Operator: Destrude isn't detected. (Wadakun: 'Destrude' isn't

Ritsuko: Roger. Move the target to stage-2. 

Misato: Shinji-kun. 

Shinji: Ah. 

Asuka: Idiot Shinji! 

Shinji: Ah. 

Ritsuko: Shinji-kun. 

Shinji: Uh. 

Toji: Hey, Shinji. 

Shinji: Ah. 

Kensuke: Hi Shinji. 

Shinji: Ah. 

Rei: Ikari-kun. 

Misato: Shinji-kun. 

Asuka: Idiot Shinji! 

Ritsuko: Shinji-kun. 

Toji: Hey, Shinji. 

Kensuke: Hi Shinji. 

Rei: Ikari-kun. 

Misato: Shinji-kun. 

Asuka: Idiot Shinji! 

Ritsuko: Shinji-kun. 

Toji: Hey, Shinji. 

Kensuke: Hi Shinji. 

Rei: Ikari-kun. 

Misato: Shinji-kun. 

Asuka: Idiot Shinji! 

Ritsuko: Shinji-kun. 

Maya: No. His ego border is a loop fixedly. 

Ritsuko: Try to irradiate to all wave patterns from all directions. 

Ritsuko: No. The irradiated signals are captured in Clein space. 

Misato: What do you mean? 

Ritsuko: I mean, a failure. 

Misato: What? 

Ritsuko: Stop the interference. Reverse the tangent graph. Set the
   addition value to 0. 

Maya: Yes. 

Shigeru: In Q area, Destrude reaction is detected. Pattern is sepia. 

Makoto: As for the core pulse, some changes are detected. Plus 3 is

Female Operator: The water temperature is getting higher. 36, 38, 41,
   58,76, 97, 106... 

Ritsukko: Maintaining the present condition is the top priority
   issue. Present flowing back. 

Male Operator: The internal aproaching work. Over the estimated
   value. It's going into the dangerous area. 

Maya: Yes. Plus 0,5, 0,8. It's strange. I can't stop it. 

Ritsuko: What does it mean? You don't want to come back, Shinji-kun? 

Shinji: I can't get it. I can't get it. I, I ... 

Misato: What do you want? 

Asuka: What do you want? 

Rei: What do you want? 

Yui: What do you want? 

Maya: Eva rejected the signal. 

Shigeru: His ego formation in LCL is breaking up. 

Makoto: In the plug, the pressure is getting high. 

Ritsuko: Stop all operations. Cut the power supply. 

Maya: No. The plug is exited. 

Misato: Shinji-kun! 

Shinji: Ah! 

Shinji: This place? 

Shinji': In Eva. 

Shinji: In Eva? I've got into Eva again, haven't I? Why? 

Misato: You won't get into Eva any more? 

Shinji: I've decided that I'll never get into Eva any further? 

Misato: Nevertheless, you did. Into Eva-01. 

Shinji: Ah! 

Misato: Shinji-kun, you are here because you got into Eva. Because
   you got into Eva, you became what you are. You can't deny that,
   the fact that you got into Eva nor what you were, your past life. 

Shinji: I, I ... 

Misato: (wailing) What a nonsense the science which can't save even a

Shinji: Smell. I smell someone. Misato-san? Ayanami? No, it doesn's
   smell them. I got it. It smells Mother. 

Gendo: It is a pity that his child will live after the Second Impact. 

Yui: Well. If he want to live, anywhere becomes the heaven. Because
   he really lives, he will find the chances for happiness anywhere. 

Gendo: I see. You may be right. 

Shinji: Mother. 

Yui: Have you decided? 

Gendo: I'll name it Shinji for a boy, Rei for a girl. 

Yui: Shinji, Rei. 

Shinji: Mother. 

Misato: (weiling) Shinji. 


Ritsuko: Repairment of Unit One will be finished the day after

Misato: Finally, human beings use even the God's power as a tool. 

Ritsuko: I don't know. The committee is also discussing freezing

Misato: Human-made-human Evangelion. Although it was made by humans,
   don't you think the black box is too large? I'm satisfied because
   Shinji-kun was finally saved. 

Ritsuko: It's beyond my ability. It's thanks to you, perhaps. Well,
   how about having a drink after a long time? 

Misato: Sorry. Yeah, well ... you know. 

Ritsuko: I see. 

Misato: Bye. 

Ritsuko: After she knew that Shinji-kun was safe, she has a secret
   meeting with a man. I've got no room to talk. 

Misato: I'm sure that Ritsuko is despising me as indecent woman now. 

Ryoji: Those who are hooked on sexual desires are more real as
   humans. Then we may deceive them a little. 

Misato: Our intelligence agency? Commander Ikari or Ritsuko? Or me? 

Ryoji: No, me. 

Misato: Others ... I'm right? You aren't interested in others but you
   feel lonely. You're really like my father. 

Ryoji: Cigarette. You still smoke. 

Misato: I smoke only after a thing like this. So only you know this. 

Ryoji: I feel honored. 

Misato: By the way, 

Ryoji: Do you meet me because you want to know that. 

Misato: Yeah, that's one of the reason. I'm honest, don't you think? 

Ryoji: The honor would be entirely mine, if a lady would make a
   cat's-paw of me. 

Misato: At present, it's important that I let you know my hope. What
   is the true goal of Nerv and Commander Ikari? 

Ryoji: It's I that want to know that. 

Misato: Wait, dodge my questions by doing such a thing. No, don't put
   such a thing in. Well, what are you doing in such a time? 

Ryoji: Here is a present for the first time in eight years. 

Misato: Wha? 

Ryoji: I'm afraid that it's the last one. 

Trail: Fuyutsuki is taken away by Seele. His past recollections
   which cross his mind. Kyoto in 1999. Everything started then. Can
   Nerv be a fortress for human beings? Next episode is
   "Nerv was born" .
