A Date with Destiny

Chapter One: Awakening I opened my eyes. There was an odd feeling of tension as I opened them, as if they had been left unused for a prolonged period of time. Little by little, my body was slowly coming to life, feeling the f...

These Evangelion loafers are rather stylish

We've seen several Evangelion-themed products in the past, but these could perhaps be the most comfortable. Radio Eva and shoe designer Marqui have teamed up to create what they call 'Eva Toy Shoes', despite them being perfec...

Now you can be Gendo in real life by wearing his goggles

Here's a hot new item in the Evangelion Store: Gendo Ikari's goggles from Evangelion 3.0. They're not identical to the ones worn in the film, but they're probably as close as you're going to get for a mass-produced item. It c...

Theater listings for Evangelion 3.0 available, rejoice!

A few weeks ago I broke the news that Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo was actually coming to theaters across the United States and Canada. I also made a pretty bitter comment that, of course, it would never come to Louisville, Kentucky, because I'm doomed to a life of haphazard anime "conventions" and only one place to purchase bubble tea that's open at reasonable hours.

Evangelion and Japanese Swords Exhibit Starting Nov. 23

The Mori Art Museum in Ueno, Tokyo will be holding the "Evangelion and Japanese Swords Exhibit" from November 23rd to December 23rd, and that sounds like a bizarre sort of combination, but anything that gives me an excuse to look at Asuka and Mari brandishing swords is A-OK with me. The show has traveled from Okazaki to Osaka and everywhere in between, and now it's coming to Tokyo.
