Over 1,300 related items on display

The Evangelion Exhibition is now open in Matsuya Ginza, Tokyo, with displays of over 1,300 production materials including original drawings.

The exhibition includes model sheets, image boards by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, and around 30 original art pieces from last year's Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo film. Over 2,000 pieces of merchandise are sold at the neighboring Evangelion Store Ginza, including picture books and limited pre-sales items.

The exhibition is made of four areas. In “Chapter 1: History of Evangelion,” stories and characters are explained by panels for Evangelion beginners, with an introduction to production staff and a display of celluloid pictures and storyboards.

In “Chapter 2: Making of Evangelion,” an approximately five-minute battle scene video from Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone is shown. Over 1,000 image boards, storyboards, landscape layouts, and original drawings are posted on the walls.

Fifty model pictures of characters and Evangelions are collected in “Chapter 3: Settings of Evangelion.” A life-size figure of Rei Ayanami is also displayed. In the following “Chapter 4: Rebuild of Evangelion," original drawings of famous scenes from the films are displayed for the first time.

The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Entrance fee are 1,000 yen (about US$10) for adults, 700 yen (US$7) for college and high school students, and free for junior high students and younger. The exhibition is open until August 26.
