Episode 7: The human creation / A Human
Gendo Ikari is talking to the phone. He seems to be discussing a rapport he
recently got. When a glimpse of the rapport is shown, a picture of a weird
looking robot shows up. Gendo says that it's best for 'it' to disappear.
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Episode 7: The human creation
At Shinji's home, things are going the same as always. Misato is loud during
breakfast, and she's drinking her usual cans of beer for that morning.
Shinji is annoyed by her behaviour, and says that he isn't surprised
Misato's still single at her age. She's being too lazy and too sloppy. After
breakfast, Shinji asks Misato if she's going to his school today, because of
the parent-teacher meeting. Of course she'll come; it is part of her
responsibility. Shinji remarks she probably just does it just because it's
part of her job. Not much later, Kensuke and Toji come to pick up Shinji for
school, doing their best to see a glimpse of Misato. Later, when Misato
arrives at school, a similar event occurs, when almost all the boys are
hanging outside the window just to see Shinji's babe-guardian.
Later that day, Shinji is inside Eva 01's
Entry plug. He thinks about the purpose of the Evangelion… and what the
Evangelions are. He thinks about the eye he saw after his first battle… The
entry plug smells like blood… Later he hears that his father left the
country for a few days for business. Gendo is discussing the production of
the new Evangelion Models after Evangelion unit 02, which should arrive at
NERV HQ within only a few weeks. Shinji learns new stuff from Ritsuko,
mainly about the real cause of the second
impact. It wasn't a meteor; the second
impact was caused by the first angel ever discovered. For an unknown reason,
the angel exploded during the research. The purpose of NERV is to prevent
another impact like the Second Impact.
The next morning, Shinji and Pen-Pen get the shock of their lives. Instead
of the noisy way Misato normally enters the room, she enters the room well
dressed, and she skips her usual morning beer. She just says Shinji she'll
be out of town for business, and won't come back before tomorrow, and
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Episode 7: A Human work
Misato and Ritsuko arrive by jet in old Tokyo. They are the only people who
represent NERV. The presentation they attend is about a new weapon to fight
the Angels. It's equipped with a nuclear reactor, providing them of enough
power to operate for 150 days. Ritsuko says it's not safe in a unit that is
designed for hand-to-hand combat. She is told that that risk is better than
a unit that won't work for more than 5 minutes. Of course, this refers to
the Evangelions, that sill require an umbilical cable. Other things that are
compared are remote control and the Eva's control system that puts a lot of
stress on the pilot. And to make matters worse, Ritsuko receives a copy of a
rapport that contains pictures of a berserker Evangelion 01. When Ritsuko
says that NERV is the only organization with a weapon against the angels,
she is told that it's only a matter of time before others will develop
similar weapons to battle the angels.
Although she kept her mouth shut during the whole presentation, Misato is
kicking the hell out of a closet in the Room where she and Ritsuko stay
until the actual demonstration begins. While she is kicking the crap out of
the closet, Ritsuko stays calm. While she is burning some kind of rapport,
Misato comments Intelligence must be dragging its ass.
Some moments later, the
demonstration starts. Two huge doors open, and a weird looking
machine appears. This is JA, the machine that is meant to battle the
Angels. Not much later, while all the people except for Misato and
Ritsuko are looking with tension, the machine makes its first step.
Misato looks at it with a binocular. "It walks! Now that's something
to be proud of!"
Ritsuko isn't paying attention to the machine at all; she is looking towards
the people who are controlling it. Something seems to be going wrong; the
pressure inside the reactor is increasing. They aren't able to shut the
machine down, it isn't responding to anything anymore. It walks right
through the control room, leaving a huge mess. Misato comments the robot is
as badly behaved as the guy who built it.
The increasing pressure in the reactor will cause a meltdown within only a
short amount of time. Misato demands the password that deletes all the
operating software, so the robot will come to a halt. In the meantime, the
machine is heading towards a populated area. Misato orders Evangelion 01 to
be delivered at the current location. She explains to Ritsuko that she'll go
inside the machine to delete the programming by hand. Just before leaving,
she gets the password for the total deletion of the programming: "hope"
A few moments later, she takes off in a
plane with onboard Shinji and Eva-01. While they are closing in on AJ,
Misato tells Shinji what the purpose of this operation is. When they catch
up on AJ, the Evangelion is dropped. Shinji is piloting it and Misato's on
the Evangelion's hand. After touching the ground, it takes a short run so
the Evangelion can grab the uncontrollable robot. Shinji moves the right
hand close to the emergency hatch, so Misato can open it and after almost
falling one time, she finally gets into the
extremely hot control room. While Shinji
is preventing the robot from walking further, Misato tries to enter the
password. Error, it doesn't work. She tries again. Error...
After coming to the conclusion the program must have been altered, she
decides to do it the hard way, by pressing the coolant bars back into their
hulls. She hopes this will cause the software to abort the system's
operation. It's heavy though, and she's running out of time. A meltdown
seems unpreventable, but then, at the very last moment, the bars shove back
and the system shuts down. Shinji is full of joy that Misato's sage. He says
it's a miracle. Misato agrees. Although she thinks someone set up the
