Neon Genesis Evangelion Razors on the Way From Schick


Neon Genesis Evangelion is collaborating with Schick to release a series of Evangelion razors. Yes, you heard it here. You will be able to buy NERV themed razors. The razors will come in three variants. The first one will be based on of the Evangelion Unit-01, while the second will be based off of Evangelion Unit-02. The third razor is simply NERV-themed and will come in a metallic silver design. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

There will be two different razors sets you could purchase. The first set is the themed razor and two replacement razor blades, while the second set comes with a carrying case and three replacement blades. Themed razor blades can also be purchased, and naturally these blades are color coordinated to match each themed razor. As with most collaboration merchandise, these razors will only be available for a limited time.

You might be wondering why the collaboration between Neon Genesis Evangelion and Schick razors is taking place to begin with. Well, it is to celebrate the upcoming release of Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon a Time, the fourth Rebuild of Evangelion movie also known as Shin Evangelion. However, the movie has since been postponed due to concerns regarding COVID-19. As it currently stands, no new release date for the film has been scheduled.

Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 currently has no release date and has been delayed multiple times. It originally had a 2016 release window.
