Alright, so we have two determined combatants, and two capable mecha. Both pilots are in their respective cockpits, and both sides say all systems are go. Martina has powerd up the golem, and Shinji is synchronized with his Eva - let's rumble! As the match begins, we see the Orihalcon Golem smash its way out of the (former) castle of Xoana, and Eva Unit 01 rise through its NERV-built silo. And they're off!
Wait a minute, they're not off. Both mecha seem to be standing still facing each other, and no one's fighting! What is this, a Dragon Ball Z episode?? Hang on, we can hear over the cockpit radios that Martina is going on about how the monstrous Zoamelgustav will help her crush her opponent, and Shinji seems to be muttering "I musn't run away... I musn't run away..." Oh well, par for the course with these two...
Okay, finally some action! Martina's powering up her main attack, and she lets loose with a blazing beam of light that sears towards Shinji in his Eva, and incinerates the buildings next to him! Quite the display of power, the same as she used against the Slayers. Shinji responds with a series of blasts from his progressive rifle - it seems he's too paralyzed with fear to do anything else! Unfortunately for him, the shots richochet harmlessly off the golem's orihalcon skin. Hang on, we have to turn down our radio speaker volume, Martina's laughing is causing feedback.
There we go, and now... we seem to be an a standoff again. Martina used up all of the 1000-year-old golem's power in her first blast, and the building she knocked out was the one housing the Eva's electric umbilical cable. Both mecha are once again immobile, facing each other in silence. Except for Martina, of course - she's bawling to "Xelloss-sama" to save her from Shinji. This is worse than Dragon Ball Z! How do we declare a winner here?
While we try to figure out how to resolve this, we have a surprise! It looks like Xelloss has decided to actually help Martina like she asked! He's materialized over the battlefield, and it looks like he brought some other Mazoku with him! What's going on? "Actually, I'm not here because of Martina," he says, "Greater Beast just decided that after the Ghostbusters fiasco of last episode, we should have a rematch." It looks like the Angels from Neon Genesis Evangelion are here to back up Shinji too! Yikes! I'm out of here, and so we'll just have to declare:
The Winner: Martina!!
