The Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 hype train is coming on strong in Japan. Following a bunch of collaborations, including Evangelion UCC canned milk coffee, turning a resort town into Tokyo-3, Bluetooth controller Evangelion mobile game, and more, is a collaboration with Japanese ladies’ street wear brand, X-girl.
Ueshima Coffee Co., or better known as UCC, is the pioneer of canned coffee with milk (that was 1969, btw). The company’s canned milk coffee rose to fame among anime fans when it appeared in 1995’s Neon Genesis Evangelion and subsequently in 1997’s Evangelion feature film, The End of Evangelion.

After years of delay, the promised new Neon Genesis Evangelion movie is finally arriving in 2020. It is the film fans have been waiting for. It is also the film which many, including myself, hope will answer the many burning questions after the TV series and the few films that follow after. There are a […]
I am not sure if the concept of escape room is fitting with the theme of Evangelion. The basis of Neon Genesis Evangelion is protecting humanity from random attacks by alien race dubbed the Angels and so, escaping is not quite the theme here. Well, unless if you are talking about Shinji Ikari, well, then […]
The anticipation for the “show down” between the kaiju Godzilla and cult mecha robots from Neon Genesis Evangelion is finally over. The new temporary attraction as part of Cool Japan 5th Anniversary celebration opens its doors from now through to August 25, 2019 at Universal Studios Japan (USJ). We weren’t sure of what was the […]
With these Evangelion-inspired craft scissors from long-time Japanese scissors maker, Nikken Cutlery, Evangelion is officially the TV show that has the most ridiculous merchandises.
