Evangelion Visual Works, a brand new exhibition dedicated to the Rebuild of Evangelion series, is set to kick off in Akihabara this March, showcasing over 300 pieces of production materials from the franchise.
Evangelion 3.0+1.0 may be delayed for the foreseeable future because of COVID-19, but many promotional tie-in campaigns for the film have continued, regardless. This has included everything from a Lawson stamp rally to Tower Records collaborations and more. While no new date has been announced for 3.0+1.0 at this time, the news of an exhibition of artwork from the film franchise, Evangelion Visual Works, set to kick off in March, should tide fans over in the meantime.
This impressive exhibition will showcase over 300 pieces of animation art and concept work from throughout the Rebuild of Evangelion series, including genga (key animation) boards from iconic moments from the films. While some work from the original series will also be showcased, and over 1000 pieces of production materials have been consulted to capture the story boarding and animation work on display during this event, 300 pieces will be showcased. Limited pieces from the new 3.0+1.0 film will also be on display.
While some of the works set to be showcased in the Evangelion Visual Works exhibition have been previewed in other events in the past, it will be updated to take into account the new film, and will travel the country following its showcase in Tokyo. Visitors will be able to order reproductions of the material at the event.
The Evangelion Visual Works Exhibition will take place at Loax in Akihabara from 26 March until 9 May, and tickets can be ordered through Lawson now for a reduced general entry price of 1100 yen until 25 March. You can find out more about the event over on the official website.
