A little while ago (2015) there was an Evangelion shinkansen doing the rounds in Japan but now we hear that there’s a train coming styled after the Evangelion Unit-01 unit.Continue reading Evangelion Train Coming To Japan

So I missed my monthly Cosplayer Of The Month segment…apologies 🙁 But it’s back with a brand new cosplayer from the US that I recently discovered. Welcome CelestiialMoon to the monthly pages of COTM! She’s someone I found on Instagram and realised that she had pretty much cosplayed all my favourite characters. From Sucker Punch’s Baby Doll, Kantai Collection’s Shimakaze, my deadset fave from Neon Genesis Evangelion Asuka Langley, Misty from Pokemon and so many more!
The pics below are just a sample of her amazing work and I’ve included links to her IG account and Facebook page below the gallery!

Here’s a great looking figure that manages to combine two of the biggest franchises with the largest fan base. Evangelion and Transformers. June 12 marks the day that pre-orders start for this amazing looking Takara Tomy Transformer / Evangelion Masterpiece Optimus Prime EVA Mode.
There will only be 1000 models available which explains why the price is over $300 for this baby.
The Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, is a very busy person of late. He’s been on a European tour lately going to Germany, UK, Portugal, Spain, France and Belgium. While he was in the area, he went past Paris to take a look at the “Evangelion and Japanese Swords” exhibition which is taking place at the Maison de la culture du Japon a Paris.
The exhibition showcases different Japanese swords inspired by the world of Neon Genesis Evangelion. The Prime Minister had the following to say about the event.
“Anime is very popular in France. Utilizing Japan’s strengths will help the growing of the economy. A collaboration between a modern anime and a traditional swordsmanship is one of the new ways to promote ‘Cool Japan’ to the world.”
So you want to travel around Tokyo but you know, with that little extra flair? How about catching one of these amazing looking Evangelion buses that have made a comeback after originally appearing back in 2012 around the Hakone region. Hakone is the basis for the Tokyo-3 area seen in the series.
This snazzy new bus shows off Kaworu, Asuka, Shinji, Rei and Mari wearing stylish yukatas while the inside of the bus sees similar decorations on the ticket machine, windows and the luggage compartments.
Just a quick snippet of a crossover tease hinted at that will have a lot of fanboys tongues wagging. A hobby magazine in Japan recently hinted at a possible collaboration crossover involving 2 massive franchises: Transformers and Evangelion.
Looks like an EVA coloured Optimus Prime might be in the works. I’m not a model collector at all but I would definitely be getting my mitts on this!

We reported a while ago that Sanrio from Hello Kitty fame was teaming up with cult classic anime, Evangelion and producing some interesting products. Oh, did we mention that they’re extremely kawaii as well?
