News source:


With the success of the recently released, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, otherwise known as Evangelion: Q, fans of the classic anime franchise can look forward to a ton of new events!

Exceeding box office takings of over 4.1 billion yen, fans in Japan are now soon able to catch all 3 movies back-to-back in a movie marathon in over 44 theatres country-wide on the 31st December 2012 in a New Year's Eve special event. Each ticket costs 3,500 yen.

To further celebrate the franchise's recent new success and to usher in the new year, the EVANGELION STORE TOKYO-01 in Harajuku announced a special New Year's Eve event as well.

Dubbed the "108 New Year's Eve Purging ANTA BAKAs?!" Countdown Event, special guest Miyamura Yuko, the seiyuu of Asuka Shikinami Langley, will greet the New Year with the help of a (LARGE) group of friends by each taking turns yelling「あんた、バカアアァァア?!」(Are you stupid?!) - Asuka's signature catch phrase.

This historical event will be broadcasted live on Japanese TV.
