Evangelion Fans Are Losing Their Heads Over This Popcorn Bucket

Thursday 21st January 2016


Japan, the mecca of all things anime, have taken it upon themselves to create a popcorn bucket out of Eva Unit-01's head!

What seems like a crazy idea at first is actually an awesome and unique way to enjoy copious amounts of popcorn, need we say more?

The item in question is available to buy at Universal Studios Japan during their Cool Japan 2016 campaign. So if you’re planning a trip to Japan in the first half of this year make sure you check it out. However, the campaign ends in late June so be quick if you want to grab this great piece of merch.

The popcorn bucket styled on Eva Unit-01’s head, is of course a fully functional popcorn bucket, but that’s not all - the eyes light-up and it even opens its mouth! The bucket costs 3,980 yen (£24) a rather pricey piece of kit to eat your popcorn from, but damn it’s awesome!

Now we REALLY want one, nothing would go with our upcoming release of Evangelion 3.33 better!

Evangelion 333Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo is available on Blu-ray and DVD from 29th February 2016.

After the 'Third Impact', Shinji awakens to an existence he does not recognise. Earth lies in ruins. Those he once fought valiantly to protect have cruelly turned against him. With Rei Ayanami nowhere to be seen, could his efforts to save her have been in vain - and what friendships can he now rely on? Trapped in a harrowing cycle of death and rebirth, Shinji continues to courageously battle the Angels - even as the world spirals toward a tragic end.
Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo, is the third feature-length film in creator Hideaki Anno's rebuild of the ground-breaking 1995-1996 anime series, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Following on from the cataclysmic finale of Evangelion 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance, the third film takes the Evangelion storyline in a startling new direction. With its heady mix of cutting-edge animation spectacular giant robot action, heightened emotion and deep philosophy, Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo is an absolute must see experience!

The fans of Evangelion 2.22

Andrew Osmond on the audiences of Evangelion.
Hideaki Anno, the director of Evangelion 2.22, knows the viewers are transitory, but fans are forever. It doesn’t matter if you call them true believers, or plain otaku. The fans are the twenty-somethings who sit in the cinema through the lengthy credits of Thor or Captain America, just so they can see the prelude to the next Marvel spectacular. In Tokyo, they’re the people who queue at seven o’clock on a Saturday morning at a Shinjuku cinema, as they did when the first bigscreen Eva reboot – Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone - opened in 2007.

The History of Evangelion

Andrew Osmond on the prelude to the First Impact
Evangelion started as Neon Genesis Evangelion, a 26-part TV serial in 1995. It used a familiar Japanese plot template: the teenage boy who drives a giant robot (or in Eva’s case, cyborg), using the huge and frightening body to fight monsters and save Earth. The lyrics of the TV song express the myth. “Like an angel without a sense of mercy / Rise young boy to the heavens as a legend!”

The Eden of the East serial continues

Andrew Osmond finds terror tactics, national disasters and rogue states in King of Eden.
[Spoiler warning: this piece gives away some story points from the original Eden of the East TV series.] The story begun in the anime serial Eden of the East continues in King of Eden, the first of two feature film sequels by director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex) and Production I.G. Of course, we’re mainly watching to find out what will happen next to the main characters: Akira Takizawa, the daffily spontaneous player of a game to save Japan, and Saki Morimi, who fell into his adventure and then for him. Of course, we do find out what the pair do next; but Kamiyama also wants to show us what’s been happening to Japan.
