Bandai and Anna Sui revealed new Evangelion collaboration merchandise. The items will be officially available in February 2021. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
The merchandise lineup consists of a T-shirt available in four sizes from S to LL, along with a bag, pouches, wallets, and handkerchiefs. While most of the items are based on Shinji Ikari’s Evangelion Unit-01 and Asuka Shikinami Langley’s Unit-02, there are also handkerchiefs and pouches colored after Rei Ayanami, Kaworu Nagisa, and Mari Makinami Illustrious.
The previews for these items are currently available on P-Bandai. The early-bird pre-order session will be available on not only P-Bandai but also the Evangelion Store and Anna Sui Japan web page from January 13 to 31, 2021. The pre-ordered products will be delivered in February 2021.
Anna Sui’s Japanese blog page also mentioned that these items will be sold in physical Evangelion Stores and other department stores from late February 2021. The items may even be sold outside Japan as well.
Previously, Anna Sui made collaboration merchandise with Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The brand made a set of apparel and accessories inspired by Nezuko Kamado and Shinobu Kocho.
This collaboration merchandise will help celebrate the launch of Evangelion 3.0+1.0, which has finished its production and will release in Japan on January 23, 2021.
