Sega Toys has announced the development of a device based on the Magi computer system from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. The device, which will be sold under the name Handy Magi System, goes on sale on October 6 on Japan for a price of 1,029 yen (approximately 9 US Dollars). When users ask the Magi a question, it responds by displaying "Passed/Supported" or "Rejected" on its screen. The device also features the voices of Evangelion characters. Users who get a positive response from the Magi will hear the voice of Misato Katsuragi cheering while a negative response will produce the voice of Ritsuko Akagi saying, "That's not possible!" Sega hopes to sell 100,000 units of the device in a year. Source: Anime! Anime!
