ok, I've been looking through the Original Proposal for NGE, because i was going to write up a story showing how things could have been if they stuck to the ideas in Proposal.

Whats it say in there about the Instrumentality project? I can't read Japanese and the guy I tried to get to translate (a friend of mine) is being a dick.

I would like to know cause I'm drawing a blank as to how exactly to go about the end.
hurm. Meeting with Kaworu Nagisa left bad taste in mouth. Possible Homosexual? must remember to investigate further.

In the Proposal, the Complementation Project is abandoned anyway for the sake of destroying the Apostolos, so it probably doesn't really matter.

That's going to be hard without a full translation, isn't it?

come to think of it, i've got a few other people i can talk to about translating the proposal. it will be a while before i see them again, but i see what they can do.

Plus i have some money, i could pay someone for a translation if the price is right.

it's not like i need a detailed translation, i just need the gist of it to get a few ideas.

If all you need is a brief overview, then basically what it says is:

Instrumentality is a big part of the main story-line; after obtaining the power of nuclear fusion, humanity's next big thing was undergoing completion; humanity has always desired to obtain power to rival the Gods and something about overcoming original sin; and that the project is headed by Gendo, father of the protagonist, as he researches evolution and so forth.

If you want more than that YOU'LL HAVE TO PONY-UP BIG SPENDER!!11!!

HELL YES.

If we can get permission to archive them on the Wee-kee (in perhaps slightly modified form, depending on how good the trans is), that would be pretty awesome, too.

Are those scans big enough? I have larger res ones on my HD, and OCR'd text for some pages.

ok, they sent me a zip file containing the translations, but its password protected, and i don't get the password until they get the money, which will take a few days more because i used an e-check through paypal.

i sent the e-check on Thursday and it said it would take 3-5 days to process, so the translations will be posted by Tuesday at the latest.

yeah, i was busier yesterday then i thought i would be, so... sorry
but i do have the translations and the translator said we could put them on the site if we gave credit to Hauck's Japanese Translation Service with a link to their site( http://www.thehaucks.com/Japanese.html).

but anyways, here are the translations.

Page 6 (Tokyo 3)
The time is the year 2015.
The stage is the new city Tokyo-3,
a fortified and strategic city.

Following stage 2 of the plan to relocate the capital, the new city Tokyo-3 is under construction in Shizuoka Prefecture. The strategic city surrounded by the beautiful green mountain forests mixes the old town with the new high-rises.
However, this city has been fortified for a counter offensive in preparation for the attack of the Angels, the enemy who will come.
Needless to say, surveillance systems have been set up and anti-Angel defense devices and heavy weaponry have been positioned everywhere in town, but the special weapons, the giant, fighting humanoids have even been deployed.
Deep in the earth is the secretly-developed Geofront (a deep underground city), a laboratory devoted to artificial evolution.
The Human Complementary Plan, which shoulders the future of mankind, is progressing here under much secrecy.
The story unfolds with this unique city as its background.

Page 8 (Evangelion)
Engaging the enemy is the ultimate
large-scale weapon created by humans,
“EVANGELION.”
Formal name:
The all-purpose humanoid decisive weapon, “EVANGELION - prototype”
The volume’s main characters are the mecha.
Almighty giant humanoid weapons standing 40 meters tall.
Developed and built by the special-ops organization “Nerv” in preparation for the expected attack of the Angels.
Costing astronomical amounts and 14 years of time until implementation.
Currently the ultimate common weapon created by man.

Page 10 (Adam)
His true character is
a gigantic artificial man.

In the year 2000 with the outbreak of the “The Dead Sea Evaporation Incident” (the real truth was never revealed), a giant biological weapon, a gigantic artificial man, “Adam,” was discovered by man.

A replica created by gathering wisdom from the ancient peoples and using new technology based on “him” who was left behind by prehistoric intelligent life, “the first original race.” This is “EVANGELION”!
The body, structured with artificial muscles and preserved in a capsule filled with an aqueous solution, sallies forth in times of emergency clad in armor, warrior gear, and other equipment based on the situation.
However, controlling this “Eva” is extremely difficult, and every time it goes on a rampage, the people realize their helplessness and dread.

Page 11 (Marduk)
One boy and two
girls are chosen as operators
based on the
“Marduk Report”

Evangelion’s operation primarily occurs through joint brain and nerve interactions between Eva and his operators. Because of this, the synchronization ratio of nerve A10 and the adaptation of direct impulses are given the highest consideration when selecting the operators.

In 2014 the Marduk Agency created tests based on the “new mind waves of the cranial nerves hypothesis” regarding the selection of Eva operators’ aptitude and the “Marduk Report” (never made public) that outlined operation methods. The result showed that 14 year old boys and girls with no mother could be connected to Eva producing the most stable and pure condition. This is how the boy and two girls were chosen as operators.

Page 12 (Unit 01)
This is who our
main character rides.
This is the one
who has the power
feared by all.
This is Evangelion.

EVA-01 TESTTYPE First Unit
Type A equipment for land warfare

Directly controlled by Nerv Headquarters
Affiliated with Unit 01
Exclusively operated by Shinji Ikari
The mechanical main character of the story

In the first chapter, his first activation is a success.
After that and with the help of his friends Unit 00 and Unit 02, he repulsed the Angels who had come to strike fear and destroy.

However, in Chapter 13 major damage
occurs as he is struck by a “particle beam”
transmitted by restructured Angels.

In this state Professor Ikari’s secret
and real purpose are hidden.

Page 13 (HIP)
What is meant by
“The Human Complementary Plan,”
a plan to save mankind from despair?

Mankind has already obtained the power to antagonize God. This is the basis of this story and the great international project known as “The Human Complementary Plan.”
Half a century ago, we developed nuclear fusion. Next up for mankind, who can store the sun in the palm of his hand, is a complementary plan to create the “perfect human” with their own hands.
The goal is to liberate all of mankind by scientifically re-creating “the tree of life” forbidden by God, by taking away “death” from man, and by freeing him from the original sin and the curse that plagues him.
The one who is advocating and recommending this plan is Gendo Ikari, the father of the main character. Through “artificial evolutionary research,” he is single-mindedly pursuing the form of a human who has achieved the ultimate evolution…

Page 14 (Nerv)
What is
The Secret Military Agency
“Nerv”?

The central characters affiliated with the organization forming the core of this drama.
A secret military agency under the direct control of the ”Human Complementary Committee,” an international federation of supreme executives.
A highly regulated internationally-armed organization devoted to the first original race with the goal of investigating and researching the unidentified organisms, “the Angels,” and perhaps their capture or extermination.
Implementing security for the surrounding facilities of the “Artificial Evolution Research Center” in support of this goal.
The content of their activities have partly been made public by the public relations department, but the majority of their activities are highly secretive.
As a contingency, they can also invoke their command authority (to the highest degree excepting nuclear weapons) against the United Nations forces and the armies of United Nations member countries at their own accord. When this happens, the authority held by the supreme chief officers of all divisions supersedes executive and legislative agencies of the United Nations member countries (Nerv headquarters currently does not get along well with the Japanese government and their Defense Agency).
As their primary weapon, they retain the universal humanoid decisive land weapon, Evangelion. As drawn up in their stage 1 maintenance plan, they plan on deploying five versions of the Eva weapon. As of episode 1, they have accomplished 62% of their plan.

Because research center security is of the utmost importance, maintenance plan number one governs the chief Eva division, the only group currently deployed for combat. However, because there are only three operational bodies including backups and only three operators, by nature the core Eva unit is unfortunately still operating with just the first platoon.

Thanks for posting! I haven't read them all yet, but notice the translations you posted say "Angels" instead of "Apostolos". This kind of makes me uneasy about the rest of it.

Thank you so much for getting these done, pmkava! :w00t: I think I actually have translations for 04 and 05 lying around that I neglected to put up, as well. So this would leave 03, 29-32, and 34 pending translation.

A admittedly cursory glance provides overall good impression -- it's not awkward and Engrishy except for a few odd spots. Does Hauck's have any kind of policy regarding modification of the translations? It's mostly small things that need to be corrected, like changing various terms to the standardized translations, "Angels" to "Apostolos", "Conrad" to "Konrad", and "chapter" to "episode"; and getting that male Eva-01 the hell out of there (only Adam is actually called "he"). Could you buzz the translator and ask them about this?

:crosses fingers:

Notes from as I go along:

The body, structured with artificial muscles and preserved in a capsule filled with an aqueous solution, sallies forth in times of emergency clad in armor, warrior gear, and other equipment based on the situation.
Just a hypothesis, but this might explain why Adam looks the way she does. By the time this was retconned away, she had already been drawn with pylons and such in the OP.

In 2014 the Marduk Agency created tests based on the “new mind waves of the cranial nerves hypothesis” regarding the selection of Eva operators’ aptitude and the “Marduk Report” (never made public) that outlined operation methods. The result showed that 14 year old boys and girls with no mother could be connected to Eva producing the most stable and pure condition. This is how the boy and two girls were chosen as operators.
So the Marduk institute actually existed some time in the series' history? That's pretty fascinating, and makes Kaji's revelation that it doesn't exist all the more interesting upon review.

However, in Chapter 13 major damage occurs as [Unit 01] is struck by a “particle beam” transmitted by restructured Angels.
The phrase "restructured Angels" really intrigues me.

[Ritsuko's h]obbies are Bonsai trees and punk rock.
Heh.

[Rei l]earned about emotions and feelings after falling in “love” with someone.
Gendo, right? Interesting that the translator seemed to refer to this as romantic love.

In the episode #12 storyboards, Adam actually doesn't have pylons at all; she has wings sticking out of her back. The OP was storyboarded sometime after this, and the dopey-looking Giant of Light as we know it is present at this point, pylons and all. (Will have to provide scans later.)

notice the translations you posted say "Angels" instead of "Apostolos". This kind of makes me uneasy about the rest of it.

The reading "Apostolo" for "shito" was only provided on one of the pages, which was already translated, so pmkava didn't send it. I'm kind of curious how the translator came up with "Angel" instead of "Apostle", though. Wasn't familiar enough with the NGE mythos to know "Human Instrumentality Project".

(More to come as I read more)

I know, but I really felt like getting certain things out as fast as possible due to my own excitement. It's not often I get such a deluge of "new" NGE information at once, you know? It's somewhat euphoric.
