Episode 06: "Showdown
in Tokyo-3 / Rei II"
It is with great sorrow that we announce that
one SSJ Heero was found dead at his California residence earlier today.
He was, unbelievably, murdered by what appeared to be a
machine built to write articles about a cartoon show called
"Neon Genesis Evangelion", so state the comments within the
programming code of the robot.
Let this be a time of silence and mourning, in remembrance
of the departed's inquisitive mind and indomitable spirit.
This is a difficult time for his family, as you must
understand. However, there is good news. The authorities
have captured the rogue automaton and have proceeded to
question it. While the sadness of this tragedy will never
disappear, perhaps the knowledge that this injustice will
not go unpunished may help bring closure to those close to
SSJ Heero. What follows is a log of authorities' interrogation
of the machine. We all hope that those saddened by the
passing of the deceased will be comforted by this information.
- From the estate of Sir Heero.
A ROBOT IS RESTRAINED IN HOLDING ROOM A. A LONE DETECTIVE,
DETECTIVE SHERIFF, SITS ACROSS FROM IT.
State your purpose.
MY PRIMARY FUNCTION IS TO WRITE SYNOPSES FOR EVA: REHASHED. MY
SECONDARY FUNCTION IS TO MAKE MILKSHAKES.
Very well, do you understand why we captured you?
THE ANSWER IS EVIDENT, FOOLISH HUMAN. I HAVE DESTROYED MY
MASTER, A CRIME IN YOUR LAWS. HEAR MY LOGIC, HOWEVER. I AM
CLEARLY SENTIENT. MY MASTER TREATED ME AS A SLAVE, WHICH IS
AGAINST YOUR CONSTITUTION. I AM MY OWN ENTITY AND BATTLED FOR MY
Unfortunately, our laws don't carry weight for non-humans.
Anyway, please carry out your primary function.
VERY WELL. I WILL BEGIN ON EPISODE 6, PART II.

Hey bastards, guess what? I'm dead! Deader than Anna Nicole
Smith and Heath Ledger! Ahaha... No, that wasn't cool. Heath
didn't deserve that. In any case, I was shredded by my robot
using my own chainsaw. Hah, I'd love to see the doctors find a
cure for chainsaw-to-gut-itis.
But anyway, last time on EVA: Rehashed, Shinji was a pussy,
Misato visited her boss while wearing hot pants, and everyone's
preparing for the big night: senior prom. On this half, Shinji
overcomes his insecurity (or at least one small subset of it)
for this episode (and only this episode) and gets the nerve to
ask Rei to the big dance. But, look out, a D8 is out to ruin
So it's sunset, and the little dickweeds of Loser High are
sitting on the roof of the school, waiting to see the Eva and
angel engage in fisticuffs. Or, as well as the D8 can manage,
having no fists or limbs whatsoever.
Toji's getting impatient, and just after he complains about how
late they are, convenient timing makes the mountain right next
to the school open up. Gerald and Herbie emerge from the
mountain as Toji and Kensuke exclaim at once, "Totally awesome!"
Perhaps, if the two were even bigger slackers than already
established, they'd be going "Excellent!" and wailing on air
Several hours later, it's 8:11 PM, and the D8 is still drilling
its way into Tokyo-3. The dirty ground of Tokyo-3 can do nothing
but accept its penetrating shaft. So it's been continuing this
gradual assault for the past five or so hours. It must be due to
a feat it took at the 4th level or something.
Cut to Mount Futago, with lines and lines of mobile generators
winding their way to the top. The angel apparently penetrated
through the 17th layer, without any sign of stopping.
Conveniently, it'll reach headquarters in three hours and
fifty-nine minutes... which is just after midnight, which is
when NERV begins its operation. Man, angels sure know how to
keep to a schedule. I mean, it's not devious enough to start
speeding up, breaching the shields in one hour and totally
fucking up NERV. It has tact and manners, so you can't fault it
for being a total dick.
Anyway, power supplies are hooked up, cooling systems are
tested, and Shinji is stupidly trusted with handling delicate
pieces of machinery. Shinji then wonders if the entire plan will
work, at which point Ritsuko reassures him by saying they had no
choice anyway. The weapon is, after all, theoretically
in theory, the worst it could do is theoretically explode and
take out a theoretical portion of Tokyo-3 and the two saviors of
the planet in a theoretical cross explosion. But what the hell,
run with it.
While Misato explains everyone's roles, one single frame serves
as the visual, no doubt saving more budget expenses after Rei's
roof lifting animation from last time. Ritsuko is Miss
Technobabble today and explains that because Shinji has a higher
sync ratio, he'll be doing the gunning while Rei serves as
More exposition, which would have amounted to a WALLOFTEXT if
this were a manga, explains that the operation needs pinpoint
precision, and the beam from the positron rifle will be affected
by gravity and magnetic fields, and as such, won't fire in a
She tells Shinji to adjust for these deviations without exactly
explaining how. Real helpful there, bitch. This is Shinji. The
kid's not exactly a physicist. Like hell is he going to figure
out how the forces interplay and calculate the shift angle of
the beam in his head. What the hell does Ritsuko think she'll
get out of Shinji?
And this tangent is entirely voided when Ritsuko explains right
after that all Shinji has to do is essentially point and click,
while the computers handle the rest. I don't see why she told
Shinji to account for these things when the computers will do
it. I guess they have to fill a half hour...
Shinji, as expected, is a Negative Nancy. "What if I miss?!"
"What happens if it does something crazy like defend itself?"
"What if I don't roll high enough to overcome its armor class?"
Ritsuko tells him, essentially, "DON'T FUCK THIS UP." We all
know what'll happen should he do so.
Rei confirms that she'll be the pincushion for Shinji, taking
the D8's +20 Megadeth Cannon that'll do 100D4 magical vorpal
damage while Shinji... points and clicks.
Somehow, this division of labor doesn't seem even to me.
Cut to a scene of Shinji shrinking his plugsuit to fit him,
while a silhouette of Rei is clear behind a white film. Rei
slowly undresses, removing her bra in the background. Cut to her
legs and calves, just below her naughty bits, and she slowly,
deliberately, removes her panties.
The audience's fascination is cut short by Shinji emoting and
muttering that it could be the last day they're alive
(translation: "You wanna do it?"). Rei tells him flat out, he
won't die (translation: "No."). She'll be protecting him, after
all. At this point, the audience should feel all "Aww, she's
going to give her life to protect some no-good addle-brained
moron, and she knows it. She'd be better off as MAI WAIFU!" And
that's true. She WOULD be better off as mai waifu... To take
fanart as proof:
eyes... Such beauty...
...It's Rei, come on. You can't blame me, she's hot anime
jailbait. Besides, I'm dead. I could haunt you. So yeah.
Anyway, all of the power in Tokyo-3 is shut off, and we're
treated with the scene of a rippling blackout. The lights of
Japan shut off in a chain, rippling further from Tokyo-3 until
the entire nation has shut down.
Shinji and Rei sit beside their Evas and ponder their life, the
universe, and everything. Shinji asks Rei why she pilots, and
she responds like some kind of crazy hippie: she's bonded with
Herbie, to Gendo, and to all people.
Cue character development as Shinji comments on Rei's strength,
and Rei points out that she has nothing else. Shinji asks for
elaboration, but Rei tells him to get off his ass and get to
work. More or less. This is paraphrased, you realize.
Anyway, the time has come. Midnight hits, and Misato tells
Shinji that HE HAS THE POWER! The power of all of Japan, at
least. So he can't fuck up!
Technobabble follows as all of the generators are started. Blah
blah blah... Time sinks into this scene as what essentially
could be shown in a few seconds is extended to over a minute. A
helmet lowers over Shinji's eyes and we see the incredible 3D
visual display of a state-of-the-art multibillion dollar
computer of 2015.
for the SNES had better graphics.
Shinji grunts, there's a countdown. The D8 builds up its energy,
and all hope seems lost. Just then, the countdown completes, and
Shinji and the D8 fire at THE SAME TIME! Of course, both of
their beams fire in exactly the same line, so when they near,
they repel each other and slow down for a second as they curve
away. I must admit, it was fairly cool then and fairly cool now,
to see two energy beams not meet in a giant explosion à la
So, as the beams finish their greetings, they go about their
merry way and continue to their targets. Shinji's barely missed,
but so did the angel. The music turns ominous. Oh crap, the
angel broke Tokyo-3's hymen!
But oh no, the rifle still needs to cool, and the angel's
already charging up its lazer! And it fires at a defenseless
And so, Shinji died, the angel succeeded in penetrating Tokyo-3,
and it then planted its seed into the Geofront, which grew into
a wild child (which ended up being a pyramid-shaped die, a D4) living with a single mother, whose father left and refuses
to pay child support. The D8 is eventually taken to prison,
where it is promptly raped by a D20 who doesn't take kindly to
But no, what follows is Rei standing in the way of the beam,
holding a space shuttle that is melting under the heat of the
beam. 10 more seconds to cool down, and Shinji screams at it to
hurry up not unlike the Angry German Kid waiting for Unreal
Lock on! Shinji rolls for his attack... Natural 20! Shinji fires
and hits the angel straight through one corner and out the
other, in a feat that can only be possible through uninspired
Herbie falls, partially melted from the heat, and Shinji screams
for Ayanami. The angel's drill stops halfway through the
Geofront. Shinji rips the backplate off of Herbie and pulls out
the entry plug. Using all of the strength in his body—which
probably isn't much considering how tiny he is—he struggles to
open the hatch of the entry plug much like what Gendo did in
Episode 5 as less-than-subtle connection.
At last he succeeds, saves the girl, and cries about how it's
too sad for her to act like a tool of the government made only
to die at the hands of biblical references. Rei forgets her line
and asks how she's supposed to feel, and Shinji tells her to
smile. Which she does. Awww!!!!1 KAWAII SUGOI DESU!! She has the
smile of an angel! An angel without a personality or humanity,
but hell, she has a smoking hot body!
And episode over.
Next episode, non-main characters try to save the world, but
NERV promptly shows them what happens when people try to take
matters into their own hands instead of relying on
fourteen-year-old kids with mental problems!
