Funnily enough, yesterday I was just thinking about how Sadamoto would end
the manga and immediately Misato and Ritsuko facing off came to mind.
I've always believed that Anno didn't "finish off" their relationship very
well in the animé. It just sorta fizzles out after a few minor
confrontations in the control room and the destruction of the Rei clones
(which seems rather underplayed, in my mind).
It just seems right that Misato would be there when Ritsuko has reached her
lowest, trying to stop Gendo's plans out of pure unadulterated jealousy.
However, having said that, the manga hasn't (or hasn't YET) made that much
reference to Ritsuko's and Misato's first meeting and the fact that they
were good friends prior to NERV (please correct me if I'm misremembering)...
so, who knows?
