Eyes can be found in Asuka's psychograph reading during Arael's attack

Wasn’t the angel looking into the deepest part of her mind?


[deleted]

Yeah, it's where we learn about Asuka's past and her deep dark emotions and shit.


Killcode2

Best and worst Eva episode, completely changed how I viewed the series after this one. Best because it's so well written, worst because it gave a preview of just how depressing instrumentality would be in the movie.


WaldoWired

How does it being depressing make it "worst"?


Killcode2

not worst meaning the episode sucks, but worst meaning the episode made me feel like shit


Anzac-A1

Evangelion is meant to do that. It is not a happy series.


Scared-Stuff8982

How is it a sad series? The next logical production should be Shinji and crew foraying into the universe with some cool new technology and a new lease on spirituality. Seems pretty dope to me!


somethingclassy

Here’s a reframe: this episode made you aware of parts of yourself that already felt like shit. It brought them from unconsciousness to consciousness.


Scared-Stuff8982

Nah.. instrumentality is a chance to reset the world, while everyone's soul/individual consciousness rides to the next reality (new big bang) while retaining that individuality.. which is also why asuka shows up in End of Evangelion as the first other individual consciousness with shinji on the lake of blood. the scene before that, shinji's consciousness was a literal cloud of energy, so


Scared-Stuff8982

It was trying to break through her AT field (her pattern of rejecting her reality around her) by using her traumas against her. worked pretty well!


MrMac94

That’s a whole ass face. Eyes, mouth, eyebrows, teeth, and like a hat or something. That’s creepy, it has clown vibes. I wonder if like that’s the ego of the Angel who invaded her mind, or if that’s something it dredged up


argama87

By the upper left and lower right of the face are freaking hands. WTF. What a subtle and freaky detail that was so fast on screen I'm amazed someone finally noticed it after all these year. Damn Angel attacked her mind so hard it showed on her psychograph.


argama87

I just pulled up the scene and played it at 1/4 speed and some of the other frames make it look like the hands are swiping in attack. All these years and there are still little details to notice especially with added context looking back at.


Scared-Stuff8982

That's the angel's consciousness trying to smash through Asuka's AT field, just represented via the computer readout. i love evangelion!


CATBLOB

That there looks like a good old fashioned DMT jester having too much of a peek for Asuka's liking.


mus0u

Why, of course. The relationship between Asuka and facial shenanigans is [well](https://imgur.com/QQc2zSN) [documented](https://imgur.com/53RTLCH).


MightyAxel

What is that?


mus0u

The scene in 2.22 and its early storyboards. If you pause the movie at that specific moment you can make out the face outlined in the white panel. Some believe it's Shinji, others think it's Rei/Lilith.


MightyAxel

Wow that's awesome, thanks


Konfirm

It was supposed to speak in Kaworu's voice, no?


MrMac94

I always thought it was her mother’s face down there


BiskitFoo

I was thinking halo instead of hat.


Scared-Stuff8982

It's rays of light, denoting the Cyclopse of Fire/the Sun Or, Gunbuster


Scared-Stuff8982

Also the cyclopean third eye


RandyAnifag

O sht ive never noticed


SexWithFischl69

There is a whole face right there holy shit, never noticed


ParticularAd5082

This was the first scene in eva that completely broke me the bombastic music, asukas screaming and the visuals just fucked me up man


itsyabooblue

Not just any eyes, but eyes not unlike *Sahaquiel's. As someone who professionally administers the rorschach test, this was my favorite "simple" visual moment. It reminds me of Guernica. Just perfection.


Swingfire

Arael doesn't have eyes that's Sahaquiel


itsyabooblue

Excuse me, yes


Fishsticks03

Arael has eyes?


aquarian-sunchild

My brain immediately thought of the Aphex Twin track with an image literally embedded into the audio. https://www.vice.com/en/article/nzm7mz/aphex-twin-easter-egg


Scared-Stuff8982

Yes!!!!


jmcolext

Damn the OingoBoingo Brothers be mindfuckin Asuka


oxg03

ah yes modern art


papa_jhones

shiit. just noticeed it now. really goes with the animes vibes tho, especially last eps


fcofy

it's a face, the mouth is just below the eyes.


wendigo72

There’s so many details in Eva that you will miss if you blink lol. God I love this series


2EM18KKC01

This also precedes Armisael using the pilots’ bodies to manifest itself. And then Kaworu being a whole person.


Scared-Stuff8982

Partly on the right track, but nice eagle eyes!


Nope0003

Jesus man, that is spooky as F\*\*\*


Giomietris

A lot of those frames in that scene have weird things drawn in


Electric_Bagpipes

#HALLELUJA


DirectFrontier

#For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth!


Scared-Stuff8982

This is how you know it's Gargoyle! Any time he used any big attack, same Halleluja music would play.


Rumble_Pak

Damn, the more you know. I never noticed it, even after watching the anime multiple times. Good eye!


kdnrhaodmwlwjdkelf-d

bro there’s an entire new entity right there holy shit


magenta-dystopia

Looks like Arael was making a troll face in asukas brain


IndustrialSocietyy

It seems like Picasso was hired just to draw this scene


elatedgiratina

I wonder who drew that.


Worldly-Mortgage5909

Neat. Good content.


Praline-Competitive

It may be a stretch, but I think the eyes represent hiw she felt like she was constantly being watched and failed to meet everyone's expectations. This was around the time she started performing badly in the sync tests, so it only makes sense she has anxiety due to the fact she's desperately trying to prove herself in what could be the last angel attack she ever faces


mczanetti

Reminded me of Guernica by Pablo Picasso.


elatedgiratina

I wonder who drew that.


Caldodepollo75

That kinda looks like Eva 01 in berserk mode


PaulCoddington

A couple of hands and a gaping mouth with teeth as well! And the proportions are roughly equivalent to a sensory homunculus. Also similar to one of the children's drawings in EoE. They've made the graph subconsciously feel like a scrambled up Asuka. Very clever.


YellingBANANANANANA

Turn your phone so it’s upside down and you can see a pog face


Enpherest

Wow! Don't know why I never framed through any of the Psychographic Displays, might just have to now.


Ryallin

The squiggles remind me of an ANS synthesizer plate


Fenrrito

I see hands grabbing n a big mouth....


quirk-the-kenku

I literally just watched this episode. Nice find


KingAmeds

Ands it’s got a creepy smile.


cookie-timer

That reminds me of a Picasso's


ArkUchiha09

How am I still discovering new things in evangelion


ExpertCritical2278

The eyes remind me strangely of Sahaquiel's.


KonoKinoko

hands as well. actually looking at this while still, it reminds me of picasso


Scared-Stuff8982

lmao yall weebs need to watch moar anime clearly this is the spirit of Gargoyle.. since he hates 'umies. Erm, I mean humans. It COULD also be the angry spirit of one of the homosauronics but.. kind of a stretch. more likely Gargoyle members / spirits who still holds a grudge against humanity. I assume its one of those consciousnesses because they were kind of implied to be present after second impact/raising of the adams of light..


Scared-Stuff8982

I mean the face really does look like the angry face of the homosauronid... the one with the long face.

Evangelion lore, specifically a scene in like episode 32 of Nadia secret of the blue water
