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?
Yeah, it's where we learn about Asuka's past and her deep dark emotions and shit.
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.
How does it being depressing make it "worst"?
not worst meaning the episode sucks, but worst meaning the episode made me feel like shit
Evangelion is meant to do that. It is not a happy series.
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!
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.
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
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!
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
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.
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.
That's the angel's consciousness trying to smash through Asuka's AT field, just represented via the computer readout.
i love evangelion!
That there looks like a good old fashioned DMT jester having too much of a peek for Asuka's liking.
Why, of course. The relationship between Asuka and facial shenanigans is [well](https://imgur.com/QQc2zSN) [documented](https://imgur.com/53RTLCH).
What is that?
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.
Wow that's awesome, thanks
It was supposed to speak in Kaworu's voice, no?
I always thought it was her mother’s face down there
I was thinking halo instead of hat.
It's rays of light, denoting the Cyclopse of Fire/the Sun
Also the cyclopean third eye
O sht ive never noticed
There is a whole face right there holy shit, never noticed
This was the first scene in eva that completely broke me the bombastic music, asukas screaming and the visuals just fucked me up man
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.
Arael doesn't have eyes that's Sahaquiel
Excuse me, yes
Arael has eyes?
My brain immediately thought of the Aphex Twin track with an image literally embedded into the audio.
Damn the OingoBoingo Brothers be mindfuckin Asuka
ah yes modern art
shiit. just noticeed it now. really goes with the animes vibes tho, especially last eps
it's a face, the mouth is just below the eyes.
There’s so many details in Eva that you will miss if you blink lol. God I love this series
This also precedes Armisael using the pilots’ bodies to manifest itself. And then Kaworu being a whole person.
Partly on the right track, but nice eagle eyes!
Jesus man, that is spooky as F\*\*\*
A lot of those frames in that scene have weird things drawn in
#For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth!
This is how you know it's Gargoyle!
Any time he used any big attack, same Halleluja music would play.
Damn, the more you know. I never noticed it, even after watching the anime multiple times. Good eye!
bro there’s an entire new entity right there holy shit
Looks like Arael was making a troll face in asukas brain
It seems like Picasso was hired just to draw this scene
I wonder who drew that.
Neat. Good content.
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
Reminded me of Guernica by Pablo Picasso.
That kinda looks like Eva 01 in berserk mode
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.
Turn your phone so it’s upside down and you can see a pog face
Wow! Don't know why I never framed through any of the Psychographic Displays, might just have to now.
The squiggles remind me of an ANS synthesizer plate
I see hands grabbing n a big mouth....
I literally just watched this episode. Nice find
Ands it’s got a creepy smile.
That reminds me of a Picasso's
How am I still discovering new things in evangelion
The eyes remind me strangely of Sahaquiel's.
hands as well.
actually looking at this while still, it reminds me of picasso
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..
I mean the face really does look like the angry face of the homosauronid... the one with the long face.
