[What's currently here goes through continuously to the end of "part 2". The rest of the section will be added as I complete it.]


(Nerv HQ takes a direct hit.)


{Sound of explosion}


(Debris from the flame-wreathed HQ caves in.

One can see inside the gaping empty hole.)


[01:17:33, 1234]


Aoba:

Our ultimate target, Eva 13, has been confirmed visually!


Misato(?):

It's pre-reactivation, as we expected.

Eva 13 is still inoperable.


(Black smoke rises from HQ.

Granular objects fly out in all directions.)


Kitakami:

Eva 7 Series confirmed, currently closing in!

There's a ton of them! Impossible to get a count.


Misato:

Ignore the small fry!

Launch both Evas ASAP!


Ritsuko:

Maya, prepare to launch both Evas.


Ibuki:

Roger. Readying both Evas for launch!


Misato:

Launch them!


[01:17:58, 1242]


[NOTE: A lot of footage has been released for the following sequence, so I took the liberty of making an edit. It's much more impressive in video form with "Paranoia" playing.]


(Two aircraft carriers are dropped from the bottom of the ship.

The Wunder, overhead, becomes distant in a flash.)

[NOTE: I suspect, though have not confirmed, that this shot is notably different in the final movie.]


Misato:

I'm counting on you...

Mari, Asuka.

(Eva-02 and -08 riding the decks of the still-falling aircraft carriers.

A massive throng of 7 Series comes up from directly below.

Pummeling against the aircraft carrier's bilges, several break through and reach the decks.

The shredded aircraft carriers both explode massively.

Fireballs billowing up, Mari in Eva-08 comes flying out.)

Mari:

Woo-hooo!


(Eva-02, as well, forces its way through the 7 Series throng,

and it braces itself with limbs outstretched.

Skull faces are approaching from below.)


Asuka:

*battle cry*

Outta my way!


[01:18:31, 1246]

{Mines launching}


(Asuka continuously launches her dorsal mines.

The trail of countless pale blue ballistics follows the center of the spiraling explosions.)


Asuka:

Take that!

(While spinning around, Asuka fires with her autocannon.)


{Machine-gun rapid-firing}

(The band of shells aimed at the 7 Series gleam. Eva-02's form vanishes down into the swirling red abyss.)


Mari:

Right, right.

Dearest apologies!

(Swinging the Dragon Carrier on its back, Eva-08 follows on after.)


{Machine-gun rapid-firing}


Asuka:

Tch!


(Asuka, out of bullets.)


Asuka:

*yelling*


[01:19:00, 1263]

(She sends nearby enemies flying with the gun barrel.)


Asuka:

Urrgh!

(She throws the autocannon at the third enemy unit.)

Asuka:

Glasses, next target!

Mari:

Got it!


(Mari ?uses emergency brakes?.

Much of the Dragon Carrier breaks. [??] She tosses a naginata from inside [the Dragon Carrier?].)


Mari and Asuka:

*mild exertion sounds*


(Asuka catches it.)


Asuka:

*battle cry*


(After she takes down [one of the] 7 Series that comes rushing at her,

she indiscriminately skewers successive enemies and flings the whole lot aside.)


Asuka:

There!

Next!


{Shock of impact}


Asuka:

Ah!


(Tripped up by an enemy, she's thrown off balance.)


Asuka:

Uuuwaaahhh!


(Two, then three enemy units latch onto her.)


Asuka:

*battle cry*

*fighting sounds*


(She shakes them off, but fresh baddies barrel into her.)


[01:19:30, 1971]


(A big mouth approaches, with intent to bite.

The skull-head is split right in half with a rotating saw.)


Asuka:

Crap.

(Eva-08, who [had just] provided assistance, tosses the saw to her.)


Mari:

Princess!

(Eva-02 catches it.

Brandishing the weapon, Eva-02 switches it on.)

Asuka:

*battle cry*


(She decapitates the enemy that's before her, and takes up its headless body.)


Asuka:

Hah!

(She slashes at enemies with the saw, one after another.)


Asuka:

Ugh!


(The handle of the saw snaps in half,

and she duel-wields the blades fore and aft.)


Asuka:

*grunts & growls*


Mari:

Nyarome!


[NOTE: Nyarome is a manga/anime character by Fujio Akatsuka. I couldn't begin to tell you why Mari says his name.]


{Machine gun rapid-firing}


(Eva-08 provides back-up, machine gun in hand.)


Mari:

*grunt of effort*


(It uses Eva-02 as a springboard and flies off.)


Asuka:

Aiiee!

(An enemy is lacerated by Eva-02.

The saw sends sparks scattering.)


[01:19:59, 1274]


Asuka:

Hnnnghh!


(Enemies are forming a dense mass beyond Asuka's line of sight. The jumbled mass, while spinning like the teeth of a drill, closes in.)


Asuka:

Huh. The pseudo-Evas, of all things, are buddying up to block us.

Pain in the ass!

*grunt*!


[NOTE: Asuka's phrasing here for "pseudo-Evas" is エヴァもどき (Eva-modoki). More here.]


{Rapid-fire sound}


(Torpedoes are being rapid-fired from [Eva-02's] thighs.

They penetrate the maelstrom and there's a big explosion.

The mass of clustered enemies reappears from within the whirling flames.)

Asuka:

Tsk!

Glasses, need an assist!

Mari:

Yes, ma'am!

(Eva-02 and -08 hold their hands forward.

Their respectively generated A.T. Fields combine and magnify.

When [the enemy mass] -- shaped like the teeth of a tunnel boring machine -- achieves high-speed rotation, it starts getting pulverized.)


[01:20:30, 1281]


(Asuka and Mari's Straining Voices)


(Asuka and Mari grit their teeth.

Once the mass is fully thwarted, their A.T. Fields promptly vanish.)


Asuka & Mari:

*vocalizing*


(Without further interruption, they drop down into the deep-red space. Nerv HQ draws closer. Asuka braces herself. Eva-02 takes Eva-08 into its arms. Its backpack generates reverse thrust.

They move forward with resistance.)


Aoba:

Both Evas have touched down on Nerv HQ.


(On top of HQ. Asuka and Mari scramble down the slope of rubble.)


Asuka:

Our target is below that blast hole.


Asuka:

Eh? ... Ah!


[01:20:59, 1287]

(Eva-02 turns around, and its face is seized by a giant arm.

The arms-only unit produces a knife.)


Asuka:

Uwaahhh...


(Staggering, Eva-02 struggles to shake off the arm unit.

When [Eva-02) drops down and rolls, the arm unit goes away.)

(Eva-02 rights itself, and two arm units attack it.)


Asuka:

*fighting sounds*

(Eva-02 is toyed around with by several arm units bouncing around the vicinity.)


Asuka:

These things are annoying as all hell!

(Eva-02 fights back bare-handed.)


Asuka:

*grunt*

(She shakes them off again and again...)

Asuka:

Wahhh!


(...but an arm unit's knife comes at her.)


Asuka:

*struggling*


[01:21:31, 1294]


(A cluster of enemies explodes.

Eva-02 turns its head.)


Asuka:

*breath*


Mari:

After you, Princess!


Asuka:

My bad, Glasses!


(There's a glowing whip in Eva-08's hand.

Eva-02 is pursued by arm units.

She detaches the backpack. It explodes on her pursuers.)


{Explosion}

(Eva-02 jumps, escaping the approaching fireball.)


(Upon plunging into the fissure in HQ, it lands in a pool of red liquid.

A giant column of the liquid rises up.

When the huge wave settles, Eva-02 is kneeling with the stop signal plug on its back.

Rising with the plug in hand, it looks to a cross-shaped pedestal further in.)


[01:22:01, 1299]


Asuka:

Eva Unit 13.

Just in time.

(Pushing through the liquid accumulating underfoot, Eva-02 walks forward.)


Asuka:

No matter how much you were extolled as a divine Eva unit...

In the end, you're just the thirteenth man-made all-purpose decisive humanoid weapon.


(Something massive is stretched out on the pedestal.)


Asuka:

Even if I can't destroy the Eva...

driving a forced stop signal plug into the core should keep it from activating.


[01:22:31, 1307]


Asuka:

And so this...

is...

(The plug transforms into a cross. Asuka aims at the core and swings down.)


Asuka:

the end!


(But then she is obstructed by a barrier radiating from the surface.)

Asuka:

An A.T. Field?

But Eva 13 shouldn't have an A.T. Field!

How?


Asuka:

This is the Eva's own A.T. Field!

N-02 is scared of Eva 13?


***

(Amidst the debris, Eva-08 stands in place, swinging its light-whip.)


Mari:

*exhales*


[01:22:59, 1314]


(Three arm units explode in midair at close range.


{Explosion}


(Eva-08 is completely surrounded.)


Mari:

Uwaa!

Uh...


{Explosion}


(The left arm is lost in the arm units' self-destruct attack.)


Mari:

*grunt*


(In the entry plug, Mari grabs her left arm.)


Mari:

Something strange is going on...

Gendo-kun, what are you up to?


***


(Combat airspace. The two enemy ships break away from Wunder in front and behind.)


?:

Huh, that's odd.

Nerv's warships are breaking away from the front.

They're descending.


(Warships 2 and 3 are slowly descending.

The rainbow-colored barrier that's spread out below vanishes as though opening a path.)


[01:23:28, 1322]


(Terrain resembling a crater appears at the center of the swirling barrier.

Misato, looking down from the bridge.)


Misato:

The accursed epicenter of Second Impact.

So that's Calvary Base.


(There's a giant purple hole at the center.)


Misato(?):

The Gates of Hell are opening again...


Misato(?):

It can't be!


(Warship 2's towers emit light.

Warship 3's, as well.)


Misato(?): Wings of light?

They plan to make Fourth Impact happen the same way Second did?


[NOTE: Literally "through the same means as Second".]


Ritsuko:

No.

The ships were built to be the Guards of Guf.

Triggering them shouldn't be possible.


[01:24:01, 1330]


Ritsuko:

Moreover, the phenomenon surrounding the Black Moon differs from the plan.

This isn't part of Seele's scenario.

It's a rite unknown to us.


Misato:

Completely unexpected...

So that makes this Another Impact.


(The Black Moon shape-shifts into a giant spear.)


Misato: Whatever happens...

we'll completely obliterate Nerv's plans!


Misato:

Prepare to fire main cannons!

We'll sink them first, starting with Warship 3.

Aim all available gunports at Warship 3!

Load super-electromagnetic direct fire ammo.

Pelorus linkage unnecessary.

Soon as all guns are ready, start firing!


[01:24:30, 1338]


Ritsuko:

But there should be one more ship in the construction plans.


Misato:

Attack!


(The main guns float in the air and the turret bases explode.)


(Everyone sounding surprised)


Misato:

Status?


?:

Direct hit!

Something has pierced the second hull of both gunwales!


?:

Damage to the bow.

Main gun turret system is down!


(Wunder being pierced through both port and starboard sides.

The cloaking cocoon breaks, and the enemy warship impaling Wunder reveals itself directly below.)


Ritsuko:

Warship 4, the Gebet!

We fell right into their trap.


***


(Nerv HQ. Asuka brandishing the stop signal plug.)


[01:25:02, 1345]


Asuka:

However they cap off the Impact, they're going to need this thing.

So I have to take care of this right now, for real.


[NOTE: Time stamps after this point need to be redone.]


(She's being repelled by the A.T. Field.)


Asuka:

Figures that my quarry is right here and I can't bag it.

Time for last-ditch measures.

Sorry, N-02.

I need to push you hard again.


Asuka:

Release all limiters.

Backdoor code 999 (three-nine)!


(The entry plug interior lighting shuts off and switches to the backdoor mode monitor.)

(Asuka tears off the eyepatch.)


Asuka:

*pained utterances*


[01:25:29]

(Her left eye, glowing blue, is exposed; and the wide-open eye is penetrated by a small black pillar emerging.)


Asuka:

*crying out in pain*


(Asuka, bending backwards, pulls out the sealing pillar with both hands.)

(She throws it at the wall. The DSS Choker at the base of her neck starts up.)


Asuka:

*grunt*


***


(Bridge.)


Hyuga(?):

Pattern blue!

9th Angel reaction present in Nerv Headquarters!


***


(Mari engaged in hostilities with arm units.)


Mari:

*grunting*

Mari:

Princess! You're going to use the Angel's power?


***


(Eva-02 interior.)

An aurora-esque light fills the entry plug.

Pale, glittering particles swirl about.

The rainbow-colored Asuka grits her teeth.)


Asuka:

*straining*


[01:26:01]


Asuka:

The Angel blood...

Transfuse it all!


(The three cylinders on Eva-02's shoulder fire up.

The Angel serum is being pumped throughout Eva-02.)


Asuka:

*straining/exertion*


(Eva-02, its stiffened body violently spasming, tenses its shoulders,

and when it bends backward, the left arm jettisons.)


Asuka:

*groaning in pain*


(The Eva's vacant-looking eyes are flickering.

Asuka, in agony, sends tears flying.

From Eva-02's left shoulder, where nerve cables are hanging, an A.T. Field arm is generated.

It took the shape of the armor, but it's trying to slip out of the half-body. [??])


[01:26:31]


Asuka:

*straining/exertion*

*exhales*


(The jaw lock disengages, and Eva-02 opens its mouth wide.


(Asuka yelling and Eva roaring)


(While the head is transforming, it emits a powerful light.

As the armored body shatters, a naked silhouette is glimpsed.)


{Roar}


(A dazzling dome like a nuclear explosion engulfs the vicinity.

An Eva-02 made of A.T. Field emerges from within the light.)

(Asuka rears up.)

Asuka:

Uwaaaaaa!

(Breaking through the rubble of HQ, Beast Eva-02 reveals its massive, glittering body.)


Mari:

Princess... Are you throwing your humanity away?


[01:27:00]


(Beast Eva-02, accompanied by a halo of light.

In addition to the hands holding the enlarged stop signal plug, a second set of arms ????.

It thrusts its rainbow-colored fingers into the multicolored barrier between it and Eva 13.)


Asuka:

I'll use my A.T. Field...

to neutralize N-02's!


(Light in the seven prismatic colors, mutually interfering. [??]

Both hands trembling from exertion, its ten fingers rip through the barrier.)


Asuka:

*sounds of exertion*


(Beast Eva-02 thrusts down the shining plug it had been holding aloft.)


(Eva 13 suddenly opens its eyes.)


[01:27:30]


(The beam of light that spurts out blows off Eva-02's arms and detonates.)


{Explosion}


(Asuka in agony, her arms being burned.)


Asuka:

Gyaaaaaa!


(A giant cruciform light rises up over HQ.)


(Asuka yelling)


(Beast Eva-02's A.T. Field body ruptures.

The two spears impaling Eva 13's chest are slowly drawn out, and they fly toward [Eva-02's] body.

Both hands that were fixed to the pedestal come out of the restraints, and Eva 13 stands up.

When it seizes Eva-02 -- which has returned to normal -- by the neck, its four glowing eyes turn towards Asuka.)


Asuka:

Wasn't it single-entry?


(Eva 13 extends the second set of arms that were folded over its chest.)


[01:28:01]


(Its left hand lunges like a sword and penetrates Eva-02's chest.

Eva-02 vomits blood. The halo of light vanishes.)


***


(Mari engaged in hostilities.)


Mari:

Oh no!

So Gendo-kun is aiming for the Angelized Princess!


(?Even though? she's fighting one-armed, three arm units seriously damage the right arm with a suicide attack.)


Mari:

*grunting*


{Explosion}


Mari:

Uwaaaa!


***


(Eva-02 interior.)

(Asuka in the entry plug, surveying her environs.)


(Laughter)


Asuka:

*gasp*


(When she faces forward, a naked female is standing up.)


(Laughter Continues)


Asuka:

A Shikinami Type... My original?


[01:28:30]


(Long hair fluttering, Original Asuka steps forward.)


Shikinami Type:

*malevolent laugh*


(Bending her knees and crouching down, she brings her face close.)


Shikinami Type:

The last Eva is in the image of God.

You, too, need but receive me with love.

Now, come along.


(When Asuka grabs her own throat, she tears off the plugsuit.)


Asuka:

Sucks for you, huh?


[NOTE: I presume this is referring to her DSS choker getting ready to detonate, i.e., "hah! I'll die before you can take me!".]

(Original Asuka smiles.)


Shikinami Type:

Heh.


(She reaches for Asuka's DSS Choker -- which is advancing in its response --

and embraces her.)

Shikinami Type:

There's no point, dummy.


Asuka:

*gasp*


(The light enclosing the entry plug begins to spread before them.)


[01:29:01]


(Original Asuka has turned deep red, her body converted into energy.)


Asuka:

Ah...


(She pulls on the face of Asuka, who has been Angelized blue.)

(The choker that was left behind inside [the entry plug] explodes.)


{Explosion}


(Eva 13 uses the hand that's stuck inside Eva-02 to rend 02's flesh.

At the same time, it pulls the entry plug out.)

(Eva-02's eyes lose their radiance.)


{Roar}


(Its body expands and bursts. The LCL ?that popped out? pours down.)

END PART 2

ONWARD TO PART 3? 

Extended Notes


[01:19:05, 1254] "Glasses, next target!" "Glasses" is, of course, コネメガネ (konemegane), one of Asuka's nicknames for the other pilots. This one is a pun on honemegane (horn-rimmed glasses), with "kone" coming from the word "connection" -- as in, social connections. All of Asuka's pilot nicknames imply that the others got their roles through nepotism rather than merit/talent, and this one is no different. I haven't seen any good way to translate konemegane into English (Dan Kanemitsu tried with "Four-Eyed Crony", but just... yeeeeesh), so I settle for "Glasses". It lets you, the reader of my humble attempted translations, know when Asuka is using the nickname, without forcefully subjecting you to something horrible every time.


[01:22:49, 1311] "This is the Eva's own A.T. Field!" Obnoxious line. It's apparently taken in context to be referring to Eva-02's A.T. Field, rather than Eva 13's, and this is probably how Asuka intends it. But there does seem to be something... "fucky"... going on here. I'm keeping the translation ambiguous because I think there's a good chance Anno is up to his usual "EXACT WORDS / double meanings" tricks. For reference, here's the relevant dialogue:]


第13号機は A.T.フィールドを持たないはずなのに

なんで?

これって このエヴァ自身のA.T.フィールド!


[01:30:14, 1390] "You, too, need but receive me with love." The second line here is originally あなたも 愛と共に私を受け入れるだけ. Thanks to Nuke-kun for suggesting a much-needed fix to my previous rendition. For 受け入れる, I have deliberately chosen "receive" rather than "accept" in order to play up the religious connotations that have been invoked by comparing Eva 13 to God (or a god) in the previous line, and earlier by Asuka when she first approaches Eva 13 (「神の機体をうたったところで所詮は人の作り出した第13番目の汎用人型決戦兵器」). Suspicion confirmed via Google search, too; キリストを受け入れる = Kirisuto o ukeireru = "to receive Christ" is very much a thing. Why is "Original Asuka" implicitly comparing herself to Jesus? Well... I've been saying for years now that Asuka is the incarnation of Eva 13's base body, so... yeah.
