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. I mean, for most TV shows/movies related merchandises, they probably not have cutlery in the catalog. So, with the Nikken Cutlery Evangelion Scissors, it kind of broke new ground.

Oh, Look, Evangelion Entry Plug Is Now A Swimming Float

If you have watched and understood Japan’s cult mecha anime Evangelion, you will acknowledge that the Entry Plug was a somewhat grotesque object. For the uninitiated, an Entry Plug is essentially a removable cockpit of the Evangelion. It was a capsule-like tube designed to be inserted into an Evangelion’s spinal area with a loading mechanism, and it spins and locks itself inside the Eva’s torso. It is a quintessential part of the mecha and as such, it is as iconic as the giant organic combat mecha itself. And mind you, Eva is actually part living thing and so… Continue reading Oh, Look, Evangelion Entry Plug Is Now A Swimming Float

Meet The Real Life Spear of Longinus From Evangelion

Today I found out there was actually a replica of the Spear of Longinus as seen on the cult anime series, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Spear of Longinus, if you don’t already know, is one of the many biblical references in the series. It appeared in the original series several times, including what-I-thought was the most breathtaking moment when Eva Unit 00 piloted by Rei hurled the Spear of Longinus like a javelin into the Earth’s orbit, killing the Angel loitering in the orbit.

The Entire Neon Genesis Evangelion Series Will Be On Netflix

Do you need Japan’s cult mecha v. aliens series from the 90s, Neon Genesis Evangelion, on Netflix? I am guessing maybe not.

Notwithstanding our believe that the world does not need Neon Genesis Evangelion to be available to stream, Netflix is adding all 26 episodes of the Neon Genesis Evangelion, along with the two movies, The End of Evangelion and Evangelion: Death (True)2 to its library come this Spring 2019.
