Tokyo-3 in Neon Genesis Evangelion and its residents are used to carnage and destruction, which possibly, resulting them having to rely on MRE (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) ration, aka airline food for the grounded.
Never mind if we never officially see the ‘ration’ because, it is available in Japan for fans who want to have a taste of Tokyo-3’s MRE. I kid you not.
NERV Designated Emergency Ration Set is a thing and while it might be MRE, it looks kind of tasty. OK. I admit. I am a little hungry when writing this. So, my perception maybe marred by a growling stomach.
So, yeah. NERV-themed ration is something residents in Japan can buy. Obviously, it wouldn’t be a “NERV-issued” ration if it doesn’t have a packaging with NERV design on it.
Apparently, the food are made using the same process as MRE supplied to members of the Japan Self-Defense Forces and disaster relief organizations. In other words, they totally ready-to-eat. Though I think a little heating up won’t hurt.
It looks like a ‘crate’ has 5 flavors, each paired to steamed white rice. Preppers may want to know that each pack actually has a shelf life of three and a half years.
The NERV Designated Emergency Ration Set is being sold in Japan through Amiami for 7,000 yen plus tax (about US$67).
