Evangelion Bullet Train in Development

A new bullet train in Japan is in development to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Neon Genesis Evangelion and the 20th anniversary of the Sanyō Shinkansen line that makes the journey between Osaka and Fukuoaka on a daily basis.

Anime director Hideaki Anno and original mecha designer Ikuto Yamashita are working directly on the project and is commencing this Spring until March 2017.


As you see from the pictures the bullet train is a funky remodel of Eva Unit-01. They are saying that it won’t just be the exterior, but also the interior that will be themed – sounds pretty cool hey? A range of Memorabilia will also be released with the launch of the train which will be related travel products.
