He inserts the card and Magnugiga's shoulder cannons looks like it will be equipped onto Shinji, only for it to stick on Kitaoka instead. Of course Shinji is disappointed and tries again, only for Magnugiga's shield to land with Kitaoka again. Kitaoka explains that they are his cards and is essentially just using Shinji's Drag Visor to summon for him.

Shinji even unconsciously agree with Ren's opinion at first (maybe because he think that Ren will side with him.) The very next moment where Kitaoka take a votes between him, Ren and Asakura is pure gold.
    • In the first vote, Kitaoka ask everyone in the room to raise hand if they think Shinji is a bad person. While Ren and Kitaoka raise their hands, Asakura did not raise his hand in which Shinji assume that Asakura think he is a nice person. with Asakura answering that he just didn't take interest in the vote. (Shinji still feel touched for it anyway).
    • Then in the 2nd vote, Kitaoka ask those who think Shinji is an idiot to raise their hands. like the first vote Kitaoka and Ren raised their hands immediately, at this moment Shinji think that Asakura will side with him again (or wouldn't take an interest) ... however this time Asakura actually raise his hand in agreement that Shinji is an idiot (with a parameter describing the full agreement). Shinji's moment of hope crumbling into devatation at this scene is priceless.
    • After this, while grumbling about how everyone think he is an idiot, Shinji met Sano on the street and while they're chatting, he ask Sano's opinion that did he think Shinji is a terrible person (and an idiot) or not. Sano only replying with that he think Shinji is a really kind person, ironically while Shinji is happy with Sano's answer... he didn't realize that Sano indirectly also confirmed he is an idiot by diverting the answer.
