    Something gloriously nerdy : Evangelion + Japanese Katana

    Yesterday I received a package from Suisin. I wondered what on earth it could possibly be, because I have never gotten anything sent to me from a vendor before. I thought it might be documents to forward to my mother or a new catalog that they accidentally shipped to me instead of the purchasing department manager.

    When I opened the package I found this:

    Now if you're not familiar, Evangelion is a extremely famous Japanese cartoon/comic that has an ever growing and hardcore fan base.


    It was a book of Evangelion weapons turned into Japanese katanas by real Japanese katana craftsmen.

    Doubting my eyes, I had to turn to my coworker and confirm that I wasn't hallucinating...
    Although I've never seen it or know much about the series, a few of my coworkers were very excited when I showed them.

    I don't know how many of you on the forum like Japanese cartoons, but I thought it was amazing and really fun. I was so happy that our vendor sent it to me (via EMS even). Such a thoughtful gift, but I have no idea how they knew my secret (but not so secret anymore) hobbies. lolol

    Anyways thanks for reading. Just wanted to share.

    I was addicted to Neon Genesis a few years ago. I predict a relapse in the near future...

    I'm glad to see some fan here.
    Its so old but there is such a big fan base that they keep making movies and stuff. Pretty cool stuff. I need to sit down and watch it.

    I remember watching part of it as a teenager. The abridged is hilarious.

    I'm not much of an anime fan, but Evangelion is fascinating on both a story and cultural level. I'd heard of these katanas being displayed in a traveling exhibit. I think it speaks to the cultural relevance that Evangelion still has.

    It's right up there with Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Great stuff.
