A special state of emergency has been declared!? EVANGELION has appeared in Canal City Hakata!

EVANGELION Angel Attack on Hakata
A preview for the latest in Canal Aqua Panorama series, "エヴァンゲリオン 使徒、博多襲来 (EVANGELION Angel Attack on Hakata)" was held for the media and asianbeat had the chance to attend! The attraction, which opened to the public on Saturday 1st June, was produced by Khara, Inc. and Project Studio Q Inc. Directors 千合洋輔 (Chiai Yohsuke) and 荒牧康治 (Aramaki Koji) made an appearance at the venue alongside general director 小林浩康 (Kobayashi Hiroyasu). The directors told us that this footage features "Shin Fukuoka City" instead of "Tokyo-3", where original story takes place. The huge display panels make it possible for viewers to witness the full scale of the EVA units that feature in this installment and it is definitely worth keeping an eye out for the local sites that appear in the detailed background! Spectators should be able to recognize a lot of the spots featured in the video footage! Mr. Kobayashi said, "It is going to be so interesting to see all the crowds gather together and watch the scenes, which depict EVANGELION's synchronization, on a huge screen." You can only view this installment here in Canal City Hakata, so please check-it-out!"

The "Canal Aqua Panorama" makes use of one of Japan's largest projection mapping screens and water fountains to create unforgettable productions! This fast paced, action packed show is full of energy and features exciting battle scenes! Visitors will want to experience it over and over again! You're sure to have a great time if you visit the venue! (*The installation is free to view. More information about the screening times are available HERE!)

A model of a huge Shogoki (Unit 01) installation is on display in front of the store!

EVANGELIONAlso collaborated with a famous Fukuoka confectioner! We've got to sample the "EVANGELION Niwaka Senpei" crackers! Yeah!

EVANGELIONThe mask that comes with the crackers features the face of a Shogoki (Unit 01) with a slightly furrowed brow! The slightly concerned look is really cute, don't you think?
