In the original anime, Ritsuko took Misato Katsuragi and Shinji Ikari down to what was known as an 'Eva Graveyard' where failed prototypes of Eva's are housed, their skeletal remains scattered all about. The three then venture into a gigantic room housing tanks holding clones of Rei Ayanami, who we originally thought dead after dying in a battle with one of the Angels. Ritsuko broke down showing them this, and in a rage of fury, anger, sadness, and whatever else she was thinking, she destroyed the Rei clones. Every. single. one of them.
She of course, gets caught, and we see her being interrogated by Gendo Ikari, the man she solely blames for destroying her life and that of her mother's. .
I believe she just vomited, did she not?
Misato later visits her while she is in confinement.
So anyway, stuff happens, shit gets blown up, everybody goes whack. Seems Asuka and Ritsuko missed it all (or do they?). Oh and Kaworu dies.
Anyway some other stuff happens, and where do we find Ritsuko?
Oh hey she got out. Yay!
And this is where we find out that poor Rit-chan ain't gonna live for much longer....or at least, she doesn't think that. Seems she's embracing death.
So anyway, the MAGI is stopped from being hacked, SEELE goes batshit, and decides to storm the NERV complex. If you remember in the film, basically everybody gets killed when they storm the complex, lots of blood...death...people getting shot down. Yeah I didn't get it either.
Anyway, Ritsuko manages to somehow...not...get...involved with the raid. Meanwhile, Misato and Shinji are of course, running like bats out of hell. Misato did a BOOM!HEADSHOT to one of the SEELE people...anyway they run to an elevator...and...well...
Now, if you remember in the film, her death played out slightly different, after the lip lock, she basically lays on the ground, thinks of Pen Pen, her pet penguin, and everyone else, then gets blown to smithereens. (Freeze frame right as she dies and you see her body literally gets torn in half!!!)
Well shit, my mom betrayed me and now my ex-lover/ex mother's lover is going to kill me any second now.
Anyway, we don't know what the line is in the film. In the manga however........
And that, dear children, is how Ritsuko Akagi died. FIN.
Now, I wanna say something. If they ever did (and hopefully god willing they NEVER do) a live action Evangelion film, if they had to cast Ritsuko....why not go with Dutch actress Carice Van Houten? She's perfect, have you seen her film Black Book? And she's portraying Melisandre on Game of Thrones this April.
*pant* *pant* *wheeze* ugh....that took a lot to work. Now....maybe in the future I'll cover Misato's story, and even the cracked up sequence that is Instrumentality, I might even sing Komm Susser Tod for you all on purpose so we have some background music. Again, if I have misinterpreted anything you see here, please feel free to comment.
