• [ANIME] Evangelion takes on a giant tomato in hilarious new juice ad

    Neon Genesis Evangelion premiered back in 1995 and is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. The classic mecha anime recently teamed up with another 20th anniversary celebrant, Japanese juice-makers, KagomeCo., for a very special collaboration which sees the Eva pilots taking on a gigantic tomato with an AT Field.

    And that doesn’t stop there. The collaboration also includes a new TV ad narrated by legendary seiyuu, Kotono Mitsuishi (voices Misato Katsuragi in the Eva anime and is known for voicing Usagi Tsukino in Sailor Moon). The ad is a parody of Evangelion’s “next episode preview” and is supposedly set right after the gigantic tomato was defeated.

    The campaign also features a lottery where people who submit ten proofs of purchase of Kagome products, including their Vegetable Life 100 drinks, will get to join a lottery where they can win various Eva-themed prizes. The prizes range from steel tumblers (500 winners) to Evangelion breakfast plates (1000 winners), and an Eva Unit-01 drinking straw (2000 winners).


    Called “The Project of Breaking Down Vegetable Walls,” the campaign will run until 31 October 2015.
