The British anime distributor Manga Entertainment has indicated on its Twitter account this week that it plans to release Hideaki Anno's Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) film and Kenji Kamiyama's three Eden of The East films in the United Kingdom. Evangelion: 2.0 is the second film in Khara's four-part theatrical remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion series. The first Eden of The East film (Higashi no Eden Sōshū-hen Air Communication) condenses the Eden of The East television series, while the last two films (The King of Eden and Paradise Lost) gives the franchise its story finale.

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Japan's Fuji-Q HighLand amusement park has announced on Wednesday that it will open a new pavilion called "Evangelion: World - Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project" on July 23. The pavilion will house the world's first life-size recreation of the scene where the Evangelion anime's main character Shinji Ikari encounters the Eva-01 unit for the first time. The recreation will have a mockup of the Evangelion unit from the bust up.

The pavilion will also have a life-size cockpit of an Evangelion unit (from where visitors can pay to have their photos taken), a life-size figure of the character Kaworu Nagisa, a video corner, a museum, a studio gallery for taking photographs, and a shop. Fuji-Q HighLand's website will present the first interim report of the pavilion's 150-million-yen (about US$1.6 million) construction on May 26.

Fuji-Q HighLand is located near the foot of Mt. Fuji, and it has already hosted two amusement park attractions based on the Gundam anime franchise in the past, including a life-size Gundam figure (lying down on the ground). Last month, the Yahoo! Japan website surveyed fans on whether they wanted a life-size Evangelion unit constructed — and if so, which Evangelion unit.

A life-size Gundam figure stood on Tokyo's artificial Odaiba island last summer, and it will stand again in Shizuoka, the home of Bandai's main Gundam plastic model kit factory. The city of Kobe unveiled a life-size figure of Tetsujin 28-gō (Ironman 28 or Gigantor), the manga/anime robot created by Kobe native Mitsuteru Yokoyama.

The recently opened Evangelion themed Lawson store has been shut after mere days thanks to a vast horde of otaku pilgruns overwhelming the store.

The event was supposed to last a month but was cancelled after mere days, a victim of its own popularity.

Insufficient parking, excessive noise, too many visitors and the likelihood of even more visitors come Golden Week were given as reasons for the cancellation, with Lawson particularly concerned at the disruption to local residents caused by the huge influx of otaku pilgrims. Lawson is too polite to mention it, but there is some suspicion visitors were behaving in an inconsiderate fashion.

Lawson probably have themselves to blame for this – their theming was rather good, and the store they chose for the event turned out to be a tiny rural store in the middle of nowhere and barely accessible – hardly the appropriate venue a promotion involving a huge franchise like Evangelion.

There is no word from Lawson as to whether they will restart the event later under better conditions – the level of interest rather suggests a permanent store could be maintained.

While doing my morning browse of the news this morning I came across an interesting article on AnimeNews.Biz.
The article is talking about a certain ebay user placing the new Evangelion Docomo Foma phone from Sharp on ebay for sale at 1,500 as a starting bid. While there is a very clear screen cap on the site showing the ebay listing, I'm a skeptic and I decided to head over to ebay to see if I could find this phone there for myself. Surely fans of Evangelion would not go so far as to spend two entire paychecks... well two entire paychecks for me... on a cellphone. Even if it is designed after the Evangelion phones. So I searched, and low and behold there it was. Not the identical same listing as shown in that particular article but two seperate listings for the phone with the price over 1,400 US (1,500 CAD)



Now while I think the phone itself looks cool, it's missing the key parts to make the phone work overseas and even then you're not guaranteed to make the phone work with your provider. What good is that? Even still, I can't see myself ever paying more than

There are a couple of Japanese media reports that have apparently surfaced regarding the Rebuild of Evangelion series.

The First Report:
The additional Eva 1.0 revision for TV broadcast last Friday was declared a success by media analytics from the Video Research firm with Kanto Region audience share numbers hitting 12% for the night. 355,000 people sent the concurrent Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance to 5 billion yen ($52 million) in box office sales since its release. (sounds so much better in yen... five billion!)

The Second Report:
A news report has surfaced regarding the issue of people attending Eva screenings to record the film and subsequently uploading it to Chinese upload/P2P portals for download. The report has gone as far as providing instructions on how to spot the recorders. This is following the movie having been apparently leaked in Korea two days before it's scheduled premiere because of the uploads.

If you're in the civinity of Akihabara you might be interested in going over to the CURE maid cafe as it will be in it's new Evangelion mode until July 26th. The new mode is to go along with the new release of the Evangelion: 2.0 you can (Not) Advance movie.



Having recently held its "Fate/sta Night" event this cafe has come up with a new menu of Eva-influenced dishes and drinks along with appropriate decorations in the interior. This particular cafe, one of the earliest and best known progenitors of the maid café concept, is constantly remodeling itself to best fit a specific series so it's not surprising that they have now taken on a Eva appearance, however, this particular event will be longer than most for the cafe as it will be running until July 26th.

More information is available at the CURE official website.

There is a teaser at the end of the Evangelion:2.0 You Can (Not) Advance that reveals the next Evangelion film will be titled Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: Q quickening. (The full English title has yet to be given.) Khara anime studio are remaking Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime series into four theatrical films directed by Hideaki Anno.

The "Q" or "Kyu" in the third film's title is a wordplay in Japanese; the first three films' subtitles are the names for the three classical movements (Jo-Ha-Kyū or Introduction-Exposition-Climax) of traditional Japanese music such as gagaku and Noh.
