Neon Genesis Evangelion 20

Standard

The aftermath of the incidents of the previous episode are shown. Shinji, however, has been assimilated into the Eva, the result of more than 100% synchronization. And Ritsuko gets slap number two from Misato. Which is what Misato can only do since Ritsuko can only tell her little about the true nature of the Evas.


And then it’s round 2 of ‘Getting High Inside the Eva’. Only it’s an extended version. A month inside an Eva is quite long, and conveniently no Angel comes. However I can’t decide if it was Shinji or the Eva who generated those ‘Do you want to join with me?’ scenes. I can only say that the hallucination sequences would be what sets apart Evangelion from other mecha shows. This would be one of the things I’ll remember Evangelion for.

However, I’m baffled. Was he really remembering his parents conversations while he was still in his mother’s womb? Is that really possible with the Eva?

  1. Remember what Shinji’s parents said?

    “If it’s a boy, we will call him Shinji. If it’s a girl, we will call her “…”.^_^

    Fill in the blanks yourself.

    Further, guess who is suppose to be the “bell” around Gendo’s neck?

    And another thing, this “accident” of having the pilot absorbed into the Eva happened once before, 10 years ago. And that pilot never came back out. Remember that for future reference.

  2. Oh, and Shinji confessed to have seen EVA before. There was a mili-second flash of Shinji as a child in NERV headquarters, blink and you will have missed it.

    (put this clue with the previous clue together, and you get… what?^_^)

  3. Vallen Chaos Valiant, I have a question for you. Considering that Shinji was like 4 or 5 or whatever when that first incident happened regarding the pilot being absorbed, shouldn’t Rei be younger? Do you get what I’m saying?

  4. That depends on what you are saying, Danny. ^_^

    How old is Rei suppose to be, and how reliable/trustworthy is that information?

    You need to keep in mind, that misinformation is very much a part of the show. Truth is hard to come by in NERV.

    >> Oh, and Shinji confessed to have seen EVA before.

    Oh I forgot about that flash of Shinji ^_^;

    >> “If it’s a boy, we will call him Shinji. If it’s a girl, we will call her “…”.

    I remember that…

    >> And another thing, this “accident” of having the pilot absorbed into the Eva happened once before, 10 years ago.

    Ritsuko seemed to imply that too.

  6. “Ritsuko seemed to imply that too. ”
    I know, that’s why I said it; I wouldn’t tell you anything you can’t find out by watching.

    The million dollar question is… Who was the pilot?

    You don’t have to wait long. The facts is coming up very soon.

  7. Rei is meant to be same age as Shinji, but I always thought she was born after the first absorption incident…or is that wrong? Vallen Chaos Valiant?

  8. “Rei is meant to be same age as Shinji, but I always thought she was born after the first absorption incident…or is that wrong? Vallen Chaos Valiant?”

    I would love to answer your question, Danny… But this is hayase’s website, and I rather not spoil any information he doesn’t yet have the means to know.

  9. A thousand apologies, Ma’am.

    As a consolation, let me remind you of an earlier conversation Maya had with Ritsuko concerning the dummy-plug; Maya considered it unethical/immoral.

    Think of what a dummy-plug is suppose to do, and with its very name, you might figure out its secret…
