Bandai and Anna Sui revealed a new set of accessories inspired by Shinji Ikari’s EVA units from the Evangelion franchise. The collection consists of necklaces and rings based on the Evangelion Unit-01, as well as earrings with miniaturized versions of the Longinus Spear used by Evangelion Unit-13. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
The necklace and earrings will come in a single free size. They are priced at 22,000 yen (~$200) and 16,500 yen (~$150), respectively. The ring, which has a price tag of 17,600 yen (~$160), will be available in three sizes: 11, 13, and 15. (In US sizes: 6, 6.5, and 7.5)
Pre-orders of these items are immediately available on Bandai Fashion and Anna Sui Japan web stores until April 11, 2021. The finished products are expected to be delivered and sold publicly in mid-September 2021.
Previously in January 2021, Anna Sui revealed the first set of Evangelion collaboration merchandise. The collection consisted of t-shirts, bags, and handkerchiefs colored after mechs and characters from the series, with an emphasis on Shinji’s Unit-01 and Asuka’s Unit-02. The first collection items were released publicly in February 2021.
Other than Evangelion, Anna Sui also produced T-shirts and accessories based on Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The famous fashion brand noted that these items may be eventually sold outside Japan as well.
Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time, the latest movie that also concludes the Rebuild of Evangelion series, is immediately available in Japanese theaters. It sold over 2 million tickets and grossed over 3.3 billion yen in its first week. A TV spot that showed Rei Ayanami and Shinji Ikari in the movie also aired on Japanese television.
