PART 1-B START


(Kensuke's house.

Shinji laying in the darkness.)


Asuka:

Lying silently in the corner...

You just want to play up how rough you've got it.

How can I clean with your ass in the way?


***


(Other-Rei comes into the clinic.)


{Door opens and closes}


Boy:

Oh. You're not Mommy.


Hikari:

Welcome back, Look-alike.

Thanks for your hard work today.


{Door opening}


Mother:

Sorry it took me so long.


Boy:

Ah!

Yaaay, it's Mommy!


(The young boy slips past [Other-Rei].)


Mother:

Have you been a good boy?


Boy:

Yep!

*giggling*


Mother:

Thanks again, Hikari.


Hikari:

My pleasure.

We're all in this together.


Mother:

Well, let's head on home.


Boy:

Okay!

Bye-bye.


[00:28:00, 538]


Hikari:

Goodbye. Take care.


Other-Rei:

What is "goodbye"?


Hikari:

Let's see...

It's a magic word that lets people meet again.

*titters*


Boy:

Hurry up, Mommy!


Mother:

Co-ming!


(The mother and the boy join hands.)


Boy:

Let's go home and play!


Other-Rei:

What is that?


[NOTE: She's referring to the hand-holding, though it's not terribly clear.]


Hikari:

Well, it's a magic trick for becoming good friends with someone.

*chuckles*


(Other-Rei looks at her extended hand.

The plugsuit-covered hand grasps repeatedly.)


***


(Morning. Kensuke's house.

A train is floating near the watchtower.)


[00:28:29, 545]


(Asuka ditches the game console on her bed.

In the workshop, she looks down upon Shinji.)


Asuka:

I've had it with your shit.

Argh!


(She kicks him in the back.)


Asuka:

It's been hard on us, too!


(Shinji lifts his head up.

Asuka's choker comes into view and he turns away.)


Shinji:

Ugh... *heaving*


Asuka:

Throwing up again?


(She grabs a ration and stuffs it into Shinji's mouth.)


(Shinji breathing heavily)


Asuka:

You brat!

Be grateful you're getting fed like this at all!

You're still a pseudo-Lilin.

If you don't eat, you won't survive.


[00:29:00, 555]

Asuka:

So eat!

It's only been water for us!

Enjoy how gross the food is before you end up with a body that never changes!

Stupid brat!

You won't do anything just because you're scared of getting hurt again!

Since you've got free time anyway,

at least try figuring out what made me want to hit you back there!

Anno being weird and recording footage with his phone.

(Shinji with his mouth being clamped shut.)


Shinji:

*sobbing*


(He lies there, resigned to what's happening.)


Asuka:

*sigh*

You're too mentally weak.

No matter what, everything you do backfires,

and it can't be undone.


[00:29:32, 568]


Asuka:

It's all your fault, so why bother doing anything anymore?

Yes, you were acting on your father's orders,

but since your psychological fortitude is that low...

I wish you'd never piloted Evas to begin with!


(Asuka withdraws her hand, and Shinji's head hits the floor.

Still laying there, he watches Asuka's back-turned figure until it's out of sight.)


Shinji:

*sob*


(He abruptly gets up and goes out the door.)


{Door opening and closing}


(Exterior.

Far beneath the rotating train, Shinji walks at a pace, fading into the distance.

Asuka sits on her bed.)


[00:30:05, 573]


Asuka:

Sulk on your own, brat.


***


(A big blue sky over the roofs of galvanized sheet iron.

Factory buildings and giant cranes in close quarters.

Shinji proceeds alongside a straight unforked road.

A railway track wrapped in greenery.

Shinji's dispirited eyes casting downward, he keeps walking.)


[00:30:29, 575]


(Tunnel interior.

Shinji's image reflected in a puddle.

Shoulders sagging, Shinji -- his back to us -- heads for the sunlit exit.

Shinji, still hanging his head, a deep blue sky behind him.

Suddenly he looks up.

A tall, crumbling building is built alongside a lake.)


{Penguin cries}


(A hot springs penguin sends a sheet of spray into the air.

It swims with its flock beneath the concrete.)


(Interior of roofless building.)


[00:30:58]


(Even the floor is missing; only the towering walls are left.

Shinji is hugging his knees.

He hunches his back before the mountains that span from wall to wall.

The long shadows of pillars fall onto the lake.

Asuka checking in on him.

She leaves behind the sky, glowing with the setting sun.)


***


(Night. Kensuke's house.)


Kensuke:

I'm home!

Oh, what happened to Ikari?

(Asuka playing a game.)


Asuka:

He ran away.


[NOTE: 家出した refers to "running away from home"; different phrasing from "I mustn't run away".]


Kensuke:

I see.

Leaving him alone is probably the best option for now.

Where'd he run off to?


[00:31:33, 582]


Asuka:

The ruins at the northern lake.


Kensuke:

The site of the old Nerv facility...

I guess it's fate.

What about the rations?


Asuka:

I force-fed him.

He'll survive, for now.


Kensuke:

Thanks, Shikinami.


Asuka:

Meh.

It's not like I did it for him.

There's just no way I'll let him enjoy a self-serving death.


***


(Northern lake.

A celestial body revolves in the sky over the ruins.

Shinji lies on the concrete floor, his gaze empty.)


***


[00:32:00, 589]


(Bathhouse converted from a train.

A plugsuit, work clothes, etc., are in a basket in the dressing room.)


Other-Rei:

My name?


Woman C (?): 

Right, you can't keep calling yourself "Look-alike" forever, now can you?

According to the doctor, though, you can't remember your own name.


Woman B (?):

So then how about giving yourself a new one?


Other-Rei:

I'm allowed to name myself?


***


(Daytime. Switchyard.

Rain is pouring down. A light comes on in one of the electric trains.

Stray cats take refuge behind a wheel dripping with water.)


[00:32:29, 594]


{Cats meowing}

(Tilting her umbrella, Other-Rei stands there, staring at the door leading into a train.)


***


(Train interior. It's been turned into a library.)


Other-Rei:

A book?

(Insert:

In front of Ayanami Rei's room, Shinji topples a pile of books.)


Other-Rei:

The one Ikari-kun mentioned?


(Other-Rei shakes the water off her umbrella.

The potato she was holding tumbles down the aisle.

There's a girl sitting in a chair. She picks up the potato and rushes over.)


Girl:

I picked it up, so I'm giving it back to you.


Other-Rei:

Thank you.


[00:32:58, 598]


Girl:

Do you read?


(She holds out a picture book.

There's a little kid and a porcupine.)


[NOTE: "Porcupine" is ヤマアラシ (yama'arashi). In Japanese, the Hedgehog's Dilemma is called ヤマアラシのジレンマ (yama'arashi no Jiremma), literally "Porcupine's Dilemma". They do have a separate word for hedgehogs -- ハリネズミ (harinezumi), which is what Sonic is -- so I don't know why that wasn't used in the first place.]


Other-Rei:

Thank you.


***

(The fog-covered ruins.

Shinji isn't there at the usual place.

Beneath the floor of the building, he shelters from the rain with the penguins.)


{Penguins' cries}


***


(Kensuke's house.

Asuka holding her puppet.)


Asuka:

I'm alone.

I've always been, and forever will be, alone.


(She lays in bed with her limbs outstretched.)


Asuka:

That's just how it is, Asuka.


{Unidentified sound}


Asuka:

*gasps*


(Grabbing a gun from under her pillow,

she hides herself out of view.)


Asuka:

Who's there?


[00:33:30, 606]


Other-Rei:

It's me.


Asuka:

*sigh*

The one from the original batch.

I'll unlock it now.


(Other-Rei's rain gear is left at the door.)


Other-Rei:

I heard that Ikari-kun is here.


Asuka:

He's not.

Right now he's a runaway.


Other-Rei:

I see. Then I'll try to find him.

(Asuka playing a game.)


Asuka:

Lemme fill you in on something.

We Eva pilots, just like the Evas,

were constrained at the planning stage to not surpass human limitations.

Same with us having inefficient emotions.

We're only designed to match human cognitive behavior.


[NOTE: The word for framework or limitations here is literally something like a picture frame. The metaphorical emphasis is on the confining borders.]


[00:34:00, 617]


Asuka:

All of you, the Ayanami Series, are programmed with an affinity for the Third Boy.

What you're feeling now was planned by Nerv from the start.


[NOTE: "Programmed" is literally "adjusted" or "tuned", like a machine.]


Other-Rei:

I see. But it's fine.

I feel good about it.


Asuka:

Okay. Suit yourself then.

The object of your affections is at Nerv's Second Branch, the ruins of Building N109.


Other-Rei:

Thank you.


Asuka:

If you're going there, bring those rations with you.

He won't last much longer.


[00:34:29, 626]


Rei:

You aren't going to stay in the village and work?


Asuka:

Are you stupid?

This isn't somewhere I live.

It's somewhere I protect.


***

(The ruins.

A rainbow hangs in the sky after the rains.

Shinji is huddled into a crouch at the usual place.

Insert: Shinji surprised by a flock of birds taking wing.)

{Bird wings flapping}

(His eyes open wide at a uniformed Rei standing still above the lake.)


Other-Rei:

Ikari-kun.


(Other-Rei approaches him from behind and stops.)


Other-Rei:

Someone taught me to return the things I pick up.


(Shinji, his back still facing her, doesn't budge.)


[00:34:59, 632]


{Footsteps}


(Other-Rei places Shinji's music player alongside him.)


Shinji:

...!


(He knocks the player away. It stops right before it falls into the lake.

Other-Rei, giving it a sidelong glance.

She reaches down and leaves the rations on the floor next to Shinji.

She picks up the overturned player.)


[00:35:28, 634]


Other-Rei:

I'll come again.


(Other-Rei departs.

She leaves Shinji behind, his back still facing her.)


***


(Night.

A celestial body rises in the sky over the ruins.

Wavelets wash over a concrete pillar lodged in the lake.

Shinji curled up in a crouch, leaving the rations untouched.)


[9 seconds later...]


{Shinji sobbing}


[00:35:55, 636]


(He picks up a ration and bites into it.

His tears keep coming without reprieve.

A crumbling wall overlooks Shinji in the starlight.)


***


[00:36:07, 636]


(Morning.

Sunlight, pouring in from the horizon, brightly illuminates the village in the valley.

A group dressed for field work take a road that approaches woodlands.

Other-Rei among smiling women.

Helping to harvest from cucumber patches, she picks one that's not yet ready.

Children carry solid fuel.

Rei with back bent, chopping wood.)


[00:36:28]

(She timidly removes eggs from a henhouse.

The clinic, light pouring in from the windows. Toji places a stethoscope against a pregnant woman's abdomen.

Other-Rei, peeking beneath a train.

A cat releases a big yawn.

Everyone sitting together for dinner at Toji's house.

Other-Rei carries laundry that women washed at the river.

In a classroom full of empty chairs, Kensuke is instructing children and Other-Rei in their studies.

Asuka on top of the watchtower, gazing at the clouds.

Kensuke services the rice paddy pump. He wipes away his sweat.)


[00:37:00]

(The women who work the fields rest in the shade of the trees.

A dazed-looking Other-Rei lays [with them].

Tadpoles swim in a rice paddy.

The ruins, with an expansive blue sky.

Clouds drift across it.

Shinji crouches in front of the lake.

The clouds cast shadows onto his curled back.

The clouds drift in fast-forward across the sky overhead, and the building's shadows shift hectically.

Other-Rei continues to stand behind Shinji.)


[00:37:30]


(Rei laboring in the rice paddy.

She's participating in group field work.

She visits Shinji at the ruins. There are lots of rations next to him.

Kensuke gets video of her smiling.

Children run after Other-Rei.

Toji visits a patient's room.

The children and Other-Rei return at sunset along a raised footpath between paddies.

Game console left on the bed.

Asuka stops by the ruins. Having a lonely air about her, she leaves.

Shinji and Other-Rei at the usual place, the sun setting.

The madder-red sky enfolds the motionless Shinji's back.)


***


[00:38:03, 637]


(The clinic.

A medical instrument is running.

Kensuke is doing maintenance.

Toji is next to him.)


Toji:

Is it safe to leave Shinji all alone?

The whole thing feels risky to me.


Kensuke:

Let him do his own thing for now.

Ikari needs some time by himself.


Toji:

Yeah, but Kensuke...

Aren't you're being kinda cold-hearted?


Kensuke:

Worrying too much won't help anyone.

He'll come back.

Just wait and see.


[00:38:30, 644]


Toji:

*sigh*

Guess you're right.

I hope Shinji can settle into village life soon.


(Kensuke stands there, his eyes cast slightly downward.)


***


(The ruins.

The opposite shore of the lake also bears traces of destruction.)


Other-Rei:

Ikari-kun, why won't you come back to the village?


(Other-Rei looks intently at Shinji's back.)


Other-Rei:

You're not doing anything here, either.

Are you also a protector of the village?


[NOTE: The either/also is implicitly referring to Asuka, if that wasn't clear.]


[00:38:56, 649]

Shinji:

I'm not protecting it.

I basically destroyed everything.

I don't want to do anything anymore.

Not even talk to anyone.

Nobody should come here ever again!

I wish you'd all just lay off a waste of space like me!

Why is everyone being nice to me like this?!


[NOTE: He doesn't literally say that he's a waste of space, but he says "boku nanka", which is approximately "the likes of me" (derogatory). It was hard to make a more conservative translation sound... not stupid, so I added the slight flourish to bring out the sentiment.]

Other-Rei:

Because we like you, Ikari-kun.

(Shinji looks over his shoulder.)


Shinji:

Huh?


Other-Rei:

Thank you for talking to me.

(Other-Rei extends a hand to him.)


[00:39:27, 658]


Other-Rei:

This is a magic trick for becoming good friends.


Shinji:

Uh...


(Shinji's eyes abruptly flow over with tears.)


{Shinji crying}


(Mother Nature stretches out before him.

The walls towering at left and right frame the mountains and lake like a picture.)


***


(Night. Shinji stands in the darkness.)


Asuka:

Oh, so you're done running away?

Was it with the early type's help?


(Asuka, facing the opposite direction.)


Shinji:

Yeah.


(She stops playing her game.)

Asuka:

Feel better after getting all your tears out?


[00:39:59, 664]


Shinji:

Yeah.


Asuka:

I see.

If you're up and about, Ken-Ken could use a hand.


***


(An electric automobile on the move.

Disheveled railroad cars tumble alongside a tranquil country road.

Kensuke grips the steering wheel. Shinji is riding along.)


Kensuke:

Taking a drive every so often is nice.

An escape from the daily grind.

Agriculture is the village's key industry, but I've been exempt from field labor,

since I'm a jack-of-all-trades.

The main task today is running checks on the enclosing infrastructure and environment.


[00:40:30, 671]


Kensuke:

It's a lot to do.

But having said that, the existing infrastructure is on its way out.

Most of it's no longer working.

Repairs are a pain, so we leave it alone.


(Motionless windmills are visible in the distance.

The road ends due to halted construction, and the two of them exit the car.

Standing in front of a torii, they bow,

then proceed along a mountain trail overgrown with lush greenery.)


Kensuke:
