Episode 3 - The phone that never rings
/ A transfer
In Shinji's class, 2 of his classmates,
Kensuke and Hikari, are talking about the Robot incident. Of course, they
are talking about the battle between the Evangelion and the Angel. At the
same moment, another classmate enters. "Wow, has the class population
dropped or what?" is the first thing he says. It's Toji Suzuhara. He tells
about his sister who got injured in the battle, and that she has been in the
hospital ever since. He totally blames it on the robot's pilot. Kensuke says
he thinks Shinji is the pilot, since he transferred to their school right
after the accident.
After the teacher enters the room, he
starts telling about something known as the second impact. A massive meteor
slammed into Antarctica, causing the ice cap to melt. This caused the water
level of the oceans to increase, and the earth was thrown off its axis, and
new, devastingly abnormal weather patterns where created. Thousands of
species and half of Earth's population were lost after the incident.
It seems a new angel has made its
appearance, and is heading for Tokyo-3. All the civilians are
evacuated to special shelters. Kensuke is trying to receive some
information on it, but the news is being censored and he only
receives text messages. At the same time, Evangelion Unit 01 is
being prepared for battle. Shinji is wondering why he is piloting it
again, his father is not present at the time, and he was nearly
defeated the first time.
Back at the shelter, Kensuke has something
to discuss with Toji. Using the lame excuse that they are going to the
bathroom, they manage to get out of the shelter. The moment they get on the
top of a hill near the edge of the city, both the Angel and the Evangelion
show up. Shinji does just as what he had been training to do. He jumps out
with his rifle, and shoots a volley at the angel. Unfortunately, there is no
effect, besides hiding the angel in smoke. Then the angel attacks with its
whip-like arms of light, cutting Shinji's rifle and a nearby building in
half. Misato sends him a spare rifle, but Shinji seems to be paralyzed with
The only thing that gets him moving is the angel, who attacks him again. He jumps aside, with the angel's whips right on his tail. After destroying a big part of the city and cutting the umbilical cable, the angel grabs one of the Eva's legs and tosses it away... In the direction of the mountain where Toji and Kensuke are watching. The Evangelion lands just next to them, with them huddled between the fingers of the purple beast. Shinji sees them, but then the angel appears above him and attacks again. Shinji manages to grab
the whips, burning the evangelion's hand
restraints. Misato orders Toji and Kensuke to get inside the Evangelion.
After a short struggle Shinji manages to toss the angel away from him, and
Misato orders him to retreat.
