The ‘Evangelion’ Bullet Train Gets Its Own Bento Box


Earlier this year, Japan Rail West remodeled their bullet train after the mechas from Neon Genesis Evangelion—but the fun doesn’t stop there. JRW is marking the launch of the train on November 3rd by offering passengers all kinds of commemorative goods, including ekiben bento presented in these keepsake ceramic shinkansen-shaped containers.

The Eva bento boxes will be available at Awajiya bento stores at Shin-Kobe and Nishi-Akashi Stations starting November 7th, and limited to 50 sales per day. According to Rocket News 24, JR West revealed the bento boxes will be packed with “salmon and salmon roe, to reflect the parent-child relationship at the centre of the Evangelion storyline.”
