Reid Stories: Neon Genesis Evangelion and Vecto Vengeance Chapter 4.6

Here's a trailer for Neon Genesis Evangelion:

"Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン Shin Seiki Evangerion?, literally "Gospel of a New Century"), commonly referred to as NGE, Evangelion or Eva, is a Japanese science-fantasy mecha dystopia genre animation series that first aired from October 1995 to March 1996. The 26 episode series was created by the anime studio Gainax and was both directed and written by Hideaki Anno. The original Japanese cast of the show includes the voice actors and singers Megumi Ogata as Shinji Ikari, Megumi Hayashibara as Rei Ayanami, and Yūko Miyamura as Asuka Soryu. The music was composed by Shirō Sagisu and would top the Oricon charts upon release; the theme song continues to receive recognition for its lasting impact in the decades after its release. The Evangelion franchise also includes a movie tetralogy called Rebuild of Evangelion, as well as several other spin-off anime, manga and video game series." - Wikipedia

And here's my Vecto: Vengeance scene of the week:

(Previously: As Leroy and Vecto battle, Leroy tells Vecto that he didn't fight Morphaal because if he left the area, he would lose his power.)

Vecto continued his rampage, firing at Leroy as he flew past the blasts. "There's no bailing out of this one, Leroy." Vecto rapidly fired at him, locking on to him. Leroy spun around and came at Vecto head on. He dodged Vecto's blasts and pounded Vecto's chest. He pounded again as Vecto's shields vibrated. Then he pressed with his other hand and started to phase his fingers through his shields. Vecto swung with his arm at Leroy but was stopped by energy blocking the side of Leroy's head. Vecto quickly expanded his exterior shield and encompassed Leroy between his two outer shields, suspending his body in between.

"It will only take time before my shields devour the carbon from your body," Vecto said.

"Ain't you curious--how I slipped through ya shields?" Leroy asked.

"I don't care at this point," Vecto said. "My only concern is to find Morphaal and kill him. So you're going to tell me where Zendora is!"

"Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. So Morphaal knows the road to Zendora, you say?" Leroy exclaimed inside Vecto's shield as his tough skin barely flaked. "Doesn't bode well."

"And yet you won't help me take him down, coward!" Vecto said.

"How many times I gotta tell ya? I cain't leave these parts, boy," Leroy said. "I put my energy, my life force, my chi, into this here land. And only when I'm around here can I use my power."

"That's improbable," Vecto said.

"Ya got a lot t' learn, my boy," Leroy said. He focused his chi energy in the air on the other side of Vecto's shield and the energy began to destabilize his Force Field Shield. Soon, Leroy was able to slip through it, exiting the bubble he was in.

Vecto was baffled, trying to analyze the technique.

"Good ole chi is life, an' carbon builds that life," Leroy explained, tipping his straw hat and noticing that Vecto's shields had eaten part of it. "Ya shield's alive and sucks carbon to live. But there's two sides of chi: good and bad. That pain ya feel when I strike means ya shields are growin' negative, you hear?"

"So how'd you pass through the shield?" Vecto asked, amused by his explanation.

"By forcin' a balanced chi level against your shield's, neutralizin' it," Leroy continued. "Like I said, my life's around me."

"It is quite difficult to believe you," Vecto said. "My shields are impregnable!"

"Or so ya think," Leroy hovered above him.
